Good afternoon,

 

I recall that someone was working on casing for gerald's eGPU. I was wondering if any progress has been made on that, or if it's still a thing being worked on?

Hello guys,
I have some good news :) My adapter is finally working :D Here are some screens and photos. I will add more as soon I get better GPU. GPU-Z output is somehow wrong in some info, but I think it is caused by old GPU.

Congrats Zakyn!! How much did u spend to complete one adaptor? Maybe you can create an acrylic egpu enclosure with power supply like Swung Huang to make things cleaner and prevent dust accumulation.

If I count material only I spend something about 50 EUR. Plus lot of work :D Yes, I agree my next approach is to make some kind of case for it and also I would like to do better version with cable extension to put it somewhere away from laptop.

Hello guys i'm selling my adapter.The reason for that is because i don't have time for gaming lately.I use it only one time for around an hour with rx 580.I bought it for 100 euro + shipping(Europe) so i'm selling it for the same price.

PM if you have any interes.

Update: I bought RX580 8GB NITRO+ and now it crashed into impedance problem which @High_Voltage warned me before.  So next version (hope final) is in the progress :D. RX580 is working fine, but when it is under load (benchmark, game, etc.) FPS drops occurs and game sometimes crashes.

In August last year, after a Geforce Driver update, I started to have some artifacts and cold boots with disabled eGPU (demanding a restart), so then I changed something in the BIOS setup (something like "Enable internal graphics" from "auto" to "always), and then I got a black screen on boot forever. It doesn't matter what I tried, nothing worked. I disassembled and reassembled it several times, shorted the CMOS, changed TIM, leaved without power and battery for 6 months straight and it still doens't work. I tried pretty much everything, even blind bios reset (following the instructions on another thread), but nothing.

Here is the step-by-step (No battery, HDD/SSD or eGPU connected)
1. I press the power button
2. The power LED goes ON
3. The keyboard baklight goes ON for 1 second, and then goes OFF
4. The CPU/GPU fan goes ON

5. Screen is black
6. After 5 seconds I can feel some heat coming out of the left side
5. After 10 seconds the screen is still OFF
7. Pressing the Power button (apparently) does nothing
8. Pressing (or holding) the Delete, F2, or Ctrl+Alt+Del (apparently) does nothing
9. After holding the power button for 5 seconds the laptop turns OFF as it should

10. Turning the laptop on holding Delete or F2 also does nothing

 

Should I throw it in the trash bin?

I may suggest try HDMI Monitor Emulator. On laptop first, then on eGPU.

 

I think i saw here on forum something about one more emergency bios resed spots... under memory modules i think... but i don’t sure.

 

HDMI Monitor Emulator helped me when i played a lot with reviveing iGPU (no luck, bu the way).

@AllanDavidson Have you tried performing Crisis Recovery? If not, I would strongly recommend you do. You can find instructions here, under the "If things don't go right" spoiler. For that you will need any FAT32 flash drive, with this file written to it. Any flash drive will do, although I recommend using one that has an LED for activity indication. It will let you know whether the PC is reading the file and thus whether the reflash process has been initiated.

 

Also, the keyboard backlight behaviour doesn't seem like a typical BIOS problem. Are you able to adjust keyboard backlight brightness by pressing Fn+Space?

 

No effect when pressing power button is strange, too. Does it behave like that even if you remove the OS HDD? Can you try that if you haven't already?

I tried connecting an actual display on the Laptop HDMI, also no video.

There is no SSD/HDD, no Wifi module, and nothing connected to the miniSATA or Ultrabay slot. There is only the 2 DIMM connected to the laptop.

I will buy another SO-DDR3 on ebay and try it

1. I did not, because I was dumb enough to reset the boot options after everything was running ok for a couple months. The pendrive will not boot. But I will try anyways.

2. The laptop screen is always OFF, and not On-But-Blank. It does not turn On, never.

3. I think everytime I press the Power key, the fan spins a lot faster, but I'm note sure, need to verify.

@AllanDavidson The crisis recovery disk has nothing to do with booting from flash drive. It is a very low level recovery mechanism built into (possibly) the Intel ME firmware, which allows PC to read raw binary BIOS file (which is what the file I linked essentially is) and rewrite its own BIOS completely even in case it has been totally corrupted.

 

During the Crisis recovery you WILL NOT SEE anything on the screen. Your only indication that the process is happening will be the blinking of the access LED on your flash drive, meaning the file is being read. Additionally, the PC is supposed to beep occasionally during the process, but mine didn't during my tests.

I just tried, my pendrive has a LED indicator, and it didn't blinked a single time.

Just to be sure I hold Win+R for 2 minutes, and then I left I out alone for more 10 minutes. Nothing.

@AllanDavidson Did you follow the instructions thoroughly? I mean using the correct USB port, correct power plug-in procedure etc?

 

Regardless, flash LED not blinking a single time is a very bad sign. Could be that your PCH has died. Not sure if there's an easy way to test this at home, but any decent laptop repair shop would have no problem diagnosing something like that. Also, you should verify that you RAM works in some other PC (or put some known-good in this one).

Yes.
1. Pen Drive on USB3 port closest to the HDMI
2. Hold Win+R (also tried Fn+R)
3. Put on Power Cable
4. Power on
5. Wait until it blinks to release Win+R (it never did)

It may be a hardware issue. Maybe I need to take it to repair.

Also a reminder: this should be done without battery installed.

 

Also, try the clean formatted FAT32 drive with JUST the Yx01 file on it. 

 

If that doesn't help, then this is probably a hardware problem.

I have experienced this after my RAM upgrade for my y400.Then I have the RAM slots cleaned up and put the RAM sticks back and it works fine. I haven’t confirmed it is ACTUALLY caused by the RAM. But maybe you can try to swap the RAM slot or clean slots up and give it a shot?

Last time I change my modded BIOS setting, but i forget what kind configuration that i have applied nd it caused my y510p didn't boot. I'm also tried crisis recovery, but no result. So i bring my y510p to nearby computer repair service, and they say the IO and BIOS chip need to be replaced due to some shorted circuit. They also flash the new BIOS chip with the original BIOS file that i've given. Maybe you can try bring your y510p to nearby repair service, and they will do the rest. :)

      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.

      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.
