do you have any more pictures/information on this mod? What is this? A Ultrabay adaptar that have both PCI Express and SATA connectors?

That's simple.Just glue a 2.5“ to ODD tray and the adapter together then everything is great

Hey, I replaced my HDD with a SSD a few days ago and now the external card causes reboots and blue screens whenever it's plugged in. I didn't think that the BIOS would have to be modded again after replacing the HDD, so is there an easy way to see if it's my graphics card that went kaput? I don't have another computer to test that card with though.

Here's the info I've gathered.

-The card lights up and fans come on

-The BIOS looks the same as the modded one provided by @High_Voltage

-My computer doesn't recognize my card in Device Manager

-I formatted the m.2 2242 drive because I had another OS on it

-I replaced the HDD with a SSD and DID NOT migrate files over

 

Would any of the drives contain BIOS files that I may have accidentally deleted? I know the main BIOS is stored on the motherboard but is there an EFI partition I may have deleted?

@Luthercorp First of all, neither the original nor the modded bios store any kind of data on HDDs. The BIOS should function perfectly even if all of the drives are disconnected. Therefore, replacing the HDD with SSD should not have changed anything in BIOS and it doesn't have to be reflashed.

 

The issue you described might be caused by incomplete OS migration or driver-related problems in case it was a fresh install.

 

Also, how can you tell whether the card is detected in device manager or not, if as you say it causes PC to reboot and bluescreen whenever connected? I should also mention just in case, that the adapter does not support hot plug, therefore you shouldn't connect it to a PC while it's already running. Doing so might damage the card or the PC.

 

My recommendations would be to try the following:

 

  • First of all, clean the connectors (both inside the ultrabay and on the adaptor) with some compressed air. Disassembling your PC in order to swap the drive could have caused dust to get into the connector and cause poor contact.
  • Check that all your drivers are installed properly. Maybe, try installing the original HDD back and see whether it works as before. Try clean install of Windows.
  • Try resetting the BIOS to factory defaults by either clearing CMOS or selecting the option in the BIOS itself.

@High_Voltage thanks,

I forgot to say that it wouldn't recognize the card with the Nvidia driver uninstalled (it doesn't recognize what it is, just that something's connected.) Once the driver was installed, having it boot with the card in would cause the blue screen/ bootloop

Definitely sounds like an OS-related issue to me. Try different version of drivers, for example the one provided by Lenovo on the support pages. Still, cleaning the connectors won't hurt either.

Actually, it seems like a poor contact. Sometimes I loosen my adapter accidentally can cause this issue.

@gerald 

I saw that you have some adapters to sell and I would like to buy one. Will you have another round of selling on ebay? If not, how could I purchase one?  Thanks

Hi, could you describe how to get the internal display to work with the eGPU?

To use any eGPUs on y500/y510p without modding the BIOS.

I'd rather recommend you trying this BIOS mod first. The more people test it, the better.

 

Edit: But if you are really more hardware person, and do have decent soldering skills, the hardware mod can be found here.

for y410p/510p, attach the egpu (must be nvidia card), disable the GT750M/GT755M, disconnect any external display and everything should work fine. Optimus should be utilized in this way.

So you're saying it works with internal screen now? This is awesome! What GPU model are you using? And did it only require disabling internal Nvidia in device manager or also in BIOS?

According to my tests,just disable them in the device manager.(Haven't found related bios options lol) nvidia ones works fine. It seems that amd ones don't work in this way.

      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.

      Hi folks,
        Greetings from Brazil!  Not sure I'm posting in the right place, but I have a question:  how do I find out the brand and model of my BIOS chip without having to open my laptop?  I can't find this information anywhere.  Been searching for days... I have a Lenovo Ideapad 300-15ISK 80RS (motherboard Paris 5A8).  Thanks a lot for your time and help! I really appreciate it!   Best regards,   JC.

      Hello!
       
      I have recently acquired my Dell Inspiron 15 7000, and I am interested in building an egpu setup for it. It has a USB-C port. Any recommendations/guides out there?
       
      thanks.

      Hi there guys,
       
      I've been looking into getting a new GPU for my laptop (4-lane PCI-e) and enclosure (HP Omen Enclosure) but I cannot decided between the RX 5700 XT and the RTX 2070 (non SUPER).
       
      I did some price to performance calculations (higher is better) with some of the best prices I can currently get in the UK.
       

       
      The RX 5700 XT does perform better and is cheaper than the RTX 2070 (Although the 2070 does come with 2 games) but my main concern is drivers and from what I've heard NVIDIA cards work a lot better with eGPUs than AMD.
       
      If anyone has experience using both red & green or if anyone else has any other input i'd love to hear your experiences and input.
       
      Thanks.
