HP Elitebook 8560w with eGPU GTX 750 Ti

Recommended Posts

Currently I am setting up my own eGPU for the first time.
 
I am hooking up a GTX 750 Ti 2GB to my HP Elitebook 8560w. It has an Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2GHz and 8 GB RAM
An error 12 occured, did a DSDT override. But the problem is when trying to (re)start my laptop i get a black screen. I suspect I need to have the Setup 1.30 software to achieve a correct startup. Could anyone confirm if this is necessary?
 
Hopefully someone can help.

Hey jcczeeuw,

Did you have any success in the end? If so, can you be so kind to share the details of your set-up? I am interested in pursuing the same project, as I need to power up my 8560w with some serious CUDA power.

Cheers.

Hey jamez,

 

I did manage to get it working!
With the DSDT override in place and with the help of setup 1.3 I managed to assign my eGPU to a 36 bit memory and now it is running smoothly.

My setup is as followed:
HP elitebook 8560w, with an intel core i7-2630QM @2.0GHz and 8 GB of RAM. Internal GPU is quadro 1000M.

GTX 750Ti + PE4C V3.0 adapter from Bplus.

Corsair CX 430 PSU

And an external Samsung tv screen

 

As i said before most important is the DSDT override and setup 1.3. Other then that i had some trouble with the GPU drivers, but reinstalling them and not doing automatic updates works for me.

The one doneside is that i cannot restart my computer with the eGPU attached, i have to shut my laptop down completely.

 

Did not have the chance to get benchmarks and such yet, but might do that in the near future.

 

Hopefully it helps!

Hi Jcczeeuw,

I am making eGPU setup with exactly same notebook as you and I want to ask, how the hell did you perform DSDT override without errors? :D
I´m trying third day and still no success... So I want to ask, which guide are you followed and if You made some special or extra steps. If you can help me, i will be very pleased. :)

 

Best regards,

Jacob

See post of Kizwan with the most common corrections. After I had fixed the first error (of 143), all other were resolved as well.

Hey Jacob,

 

I followed this thread and that helped a lot. 

Also try this one that Mini-me, responded with. 

It also helped to put windows in Test mode, otherwise i gut stuck. And really use setup 1.x as soon as you can.

 

Hopefully this helps. Good luck!

      Hello, A couple of days ago I got a new GPU but when I installed it into my computer I was unable to use it but now I know why. When checking the device manger I went into the events tab of my GPU when I went to view all events, I noticed an error it said " event 411 kernel PnP " and It also said Problem Status: 0xC01E0438. I believe this is why my GPU hasn't been working on my PC. If you know how to fix this problem or have info on how to fix this problem that would be greatly appreciated. I'm also using a EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660.

      I'm having a problem where my PC is saying my eGPU is not usable, its detected in the Device Manager and it doesn't have the yellow triangle next to it. I cant use it games and the Nvidia Control Panel doesn't recognize it either. I'm using a EVGA NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1660. I'm using windows 10 and I tried DDU and reinstalling them and now I cant access the nvidia control panel. The GPU is not recognize on any other apps and I went on *********** and was unable to find my answer, Any help on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated.

      Title sums it up.
       
      TL;DR: we have a Clevo that runs a desktop CPU, one with those huge 82 Wh batteries. We remove the GPU and let it use the CPU's integrated graphics. How much time for the battery to go from 100 to 0? Is it comparable to an ultrabook's?
       
      I'm theorizing a mobile set with a static eGPU and an upgradable CPU. Given a hypothetical user that needs fast processing on the go and long battery life while retaining very high degrees of mobility, but at home wants a powerful machine to run most games, I guess that would be their best bet. It would surely be more convenient to keep everything in the same disk. And even though the thing would be quite heavy to carry around, changing CPU would be more cost-efficient than changing an entire laptop. (Not sure if I'm right here, and also I'm not sure whether the motherboard in a Clevo would be replaceable when the new CPU needs a different socket, which is another reason why I'm asking here.)
       
      If my above guesses aren't correct, then an ultrabook with Thunderbolt and without a dedicated GPU would be a better choice. If they are, then we would be carrying more weight in exchange of a more cost-efficient setup, which I think would be a fair tradeoff.
       
      Also I am aware of the heating problems that these laptops suffer from, at least compared to a desktop setup. Would they be solved by moving the GPU out of the chassis, and instead plugging it with an eGPU dock via Thunderbolt port?
       
      What do you think? Is it doable? If not, why?

      Hi,
      I want to show you my new project.
      I bought my laptop about 5 years ago.  It was never speed deamon, but for every day use, it was enough to me.
       
      Its specification:
      Intel i7-4700MQ
      Nvidia GeForce GT745M
      16GB RAM
      512 SSD Adata SU800

       
      Yesterday I bought Witcher 3. Of course on 1080p it's impossible to play, because of about 10fps
       
      So I make a decision to buy external grahpic card.
      I choose GTX970 and now I am looking for occasion to buy it.
       
      I've already bought EXP GDC v8.4d mPCI-E. It is used and cost about 30$.

       
      I will use ATX PSU to supply graphic card, because I have old desktop PSU at home.
       
      My plan:
      1) unlock bios
      2) buy GTX 970
      3) enjoy Witcher 3!
       
      BTW I try to cool down my laptop, so I replaced thermal paste to Kryonout Thermal Grizzly and make some tests. Temperatures and fps are on screenshots.
       
      1) laptop on table, playing GTA V 1080p

       
      - first minute (GPU core 1045MHz)

       
      -after some time, because of high temperature and GPU throlttling (GPU core drop down even to 400MHz)

       
      2) with thermalpad Glacier NC400 SilentiumPC

      - 30 minute and longer (GPU core drop to about 900MHz)
       
      3) without down case of laptop (like on picture with thermal paste) on thermalpad.
      Here laptop never drops down MHz and max temp are about 72 Celsius degrees.

       
       
      Bacause of that I bought second down case for my laptop and I will cut there additional holes.
       
      Greetings!
       
      I will describe next step when I get all stuff I need!

      Hello everyone
      I created a case for egpu using 2.5mm acrylic sheets. The first time I created a case to support a GPU + ATX psu
      Now I created another one for the GPU with an external Xbox 360 203w psu.
      the finish was not good but for my use it is already good.
       
      *both cases album
      *Construction of the second case 
      *adapting xbox psu to 8pin power (taken from 24pin)
       
      all made by hand with the tools I had.

      from Brazil.
