I'm trying to setup a eGPU rig - but no matter what I do I seem to be running into the infamous error code 43.
Thinkpad X220 i5 2.5GHz, 16GB ram (2x8GB @ 1600) Modified 1.43 Bios EXP GDC V8.4D PCI-express Sparkle NVIDIA GeForce GTX680 Dell DA-2 power supply
Seemed like a common setup from what I could read before attempting the build, so I wasn't expecting any specific troubles. How wrong I was...
Steps I followed:
Connect GPU and power plug into GDC, plug express card in laptop while power off Power on the laptop, GDC starts fine, generic VGA adapter is detected Install nvidia drivers, reboot Card shows up, but with error code 43
Sometimes I'd get a blue / black screen of death, and changing the PTD switch to 14s would fix this, but error 43 would still be present. In both cases, hot-plugging the card would work fine - it gets detected in the device manager, but the error would be still there.
I had a few times where I got error 12 instead, so I went to the BIOS and changed the TOLUD to 3GB as suggested in some online discussions. That fixed error 12 but would just show error 43 again after reboot.
I read it might be a driver issue (although people said it should happen only with the new 10xx series of cards), so I tried several versions of the drivers: latest, 375.64, 372.70, 372.54, but with no luck.
Here's a list of other stuff I tried by reading about other people's successful setups / troubleshooting experiences and looking for error 43 related threads:
Setting PCIe Power Management off / on in the bios Setting PCIe speed to gen1 manually Enabling / disabling hotplugging for the pcie interface the card is installed in
But still no luck. Going crazy over this. Has anyone been in a similar position and can offer me advice? Thanks!
Hello. I need help. A lot of link I've found in google pointed to this site, but none helped, so I decided to ask a question here.
When I turn on my laptop the beast lits up and the fan on the gpu starts spinning, but I cannot see it in the device manager. Also the usb on the beast seems to be not working since the external wifi adapter doesn't work if plugged in there.
Well, actually one time I was able to see the 1050ti in the device manager. I do not know what caused it. It was appearing there, but showed the code 43 error. I've read on Bangood forum that code 43 can be fixed by deleting the drivers and then letting the laptop autodetect the card. I deleted the drivers. Now I can't see the 1050ti again.
I had recently purchased an exp gdc beast v8.0 and I tried using a gtx 1050 with it and I'm getting error 43. It's said that the 372.70 driver works and does not give error 43 but when I try to install that driver it gives me an error before installing saying that no compatible nvidia graphics hardware found or something like that so I'm unable to install the driver but I heard the driver helps. So far I've not been able to find any guides on how to mod my driver, all I know is that it has something to do with editing the INF file. Can anyone please guide me on how to mod the driver or even mail me a copy of their modded INF file on my email email@example.com It will be a great help. My laptop model is a gigabyte p15fv2.
Thanks for reading
Hi @ all, i whant to use an EXP graphic adapter with an GTX 1050Ti with ExpressCard on my M18X R1.
I startet with the Adapter and i can install the NVIDIA driver. The GTX was normal detectet. But i have 2 exclamation mark one by the Card and the second by the PCIe adapter (after installing the driver).
I have a GTX 780m with modded driver so i cant switch to onboard graphic (with my older 6990m i can do this).
Error Code 29 (GTX) and Error Code 43 (PCIe).
I want to use the GTX with the Alienware Monitor but i also testet it on an extern Monitor.
So have anybody an idea what i can do?
I'm using the Beast Version 8.4d!
So i have my adapter connected to the mini pci-e of the laptop. I everything boots up just fine and i can do normal tasks. But whenever i open a game the graphics card still runs but the screen turns off. I can still hear the music from the game from the laptop's speakers, but somehow the game crashes and i have to hard reset the laptop to get video signal again.
What might be causing this? I would appreciate any help and thanks in advance
My setup is:
Dell latitude e6330. Core i5 3380m 8gb ddr3. 2 dimms. EXP GDC v8, mini pcie. Zotac GTX 650 ti. Corsair CX500 psu. Bios A18 (lastest for my dell)
