Hi guys. I have had my egpu setup and running fine for the past year or so on my mbp (mid 2012) which has a hdd drive.
I now want to improve the gaming performance, so I've bought an ssd.
I manage to get through all the steps in eGPU Setup 1.2 but when i go through the bootloader, it says at the very end "No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key".
I'm guessing it is to do with my ssd being in the optical drive bay location (i assume this is hd1) and the original hdd (hd0) being disconnected, so windows can't see it when in bootloader.
I think I need to edit the config file for the chainloader, so the bootloader reads the ssd but what exactly do i need to change?
I tried changing the map section (line 55):
map (%FIRSTHDD%) (hd0)
Changing the (hd0) to (hd1) put the bootloader in a loop!? So I am not sure what to try next...
Any help is greatly appreciated!
I have Lenovo e540 with an EXP GDC Beast 8.4d and a GTX 660.
The nvidia display driver crashes with a black screen for a few seconds when launching some games or when the egpu is used for a while, it sometimes will recover
My external power supply is 350W and the card has a power consumption of 140W so I do not think this is a power issue.
Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered."
What I have tried:
A GTS450 instead of the GTX 660.
Setting the PCIe port to Gen 1 in egpu setup.
Setting the PCIe port to Gen 2 in egpu setup.
Setting the Nvidia power management to maximize performance in the Nvidia control panel.
Going back to the driver version 327.23, I got a blue screen instead of a crash when using this version.
Disabling HDMI audio in the Nvidia control panel.
Any suggestions or advice on this issue?
i am newbie and want to ask some questions. I have an HP Elitebook 8570p and I am planning to use a GTX 780 with an EXP GDC v8.4. So is it ok? I am wondering whether the Dell power is enough for this card or i have to buy an ATX psu ? How much watt of ATX psu do I need to run comfortably gtx 780 ?
Plz help me and thanks in advance !
I can disable the gpu from device manager and then disconnect it, but if I then hibernate and turn it back on, my computer does a CMOS reset (turns on to Asus logo, shuts off, and turns back on), the it just turns on as if I shut down.
Is there some way to fix this? Has anyone else experienced this?
When I boot with the hardware change, it does the cmos reset, and won't boot into the hibernated OS, instead just into Windows like normal.
Hey sorry for my bad english and sorry if this question is kinda stupid..
So i have a y500 650m SLI and already flashed the bios.
I thought about getting myself a EXP GDC v8 + 220W Dell power brick and a 1050 Ti from Zotac.
i googled a bit and found some ppl saying that the y500 model 1(? - i don't know which one i have) only has mPCIE x1 - so whatever it is they say it's kinda slow.
So my questions are, do i only have 1x PCIE, how can i find out and to what "powerer degree" of graphics card can i get, that doesnt suffer from power loss then?! Is a 1050Ti ok für that PCIE 1x?
i attached a screen of my nvidia inspector window maybe it helps
