  1. I found a link to how to fix it on the forum, its working now! Thank you so much to whoever the genius is that made this script! AMAZING!
  2. I have a GTX 970 and tried the steps you listed in the terminal and I got this error. Help!
  3. I know you guys are probably sick of me now and all my issues, but like I said....I have the GPU recognized on my computer and in NVIDIA GeFroce Experience. But, when I go to the NVIDIA control panel to try to make the 970 the main card, it shows this: http://i.imgur.com/LB171KR.png?1 It says the 970 only has 1 of 2 ancor communications and its grayed out, what does this mean? I think its a problem with the DVI to HDMi cable I'm using? Any help would be extremely appreciated!
  4. I currently have the HDMI plugged into the GPU going to my macbook pro. Are you saying I need to plug it into my external monitor for it to work?
  5. Update: I brought my PSU to the electrician dude and he fixed it and everything is working. My computer recognizes the GPU but when I play a game on steam it seems like it still is trying to use the 750M inside my macbook pro and not the new 970 I have installed. How do I get steam and other gaming platforms such as Origin on my PC to utilize the 970??
  6. Yeah I told you I'm new to this, I wasn't sure what wire to cut, I did't do the cutting, I brought it to an electrician dude and he told me those would be easy to cut and I told him to go for it. Should I just order another PSU and tell him to cut the correct wires? Or is this still salvageable...?
  7. Here is what the cable looks like. Would it be safe to use those 2 wide 4 pin to 8 pin to power the GPU until I can get the extension to power the akitio with the 6+2 like you reccomended?
  8. I got the 6+2 to fit but the problem is its on the same wire that has my power for the Akitio and the cable isn't long enough for both to be plugged in...its just one or the other. Is there some kind of extension I can order for the DC so it will reach the back of the Akitio?
  9. No the PSU doesn't have a native 8 pin. It has a 6pin thing with a 2 pin next to it but I don't think they fit into the 8 pin. I can't remember but I think either my PSU or GPU came with this adapter thing that took the 2 wide 4 pin things and it converts to 8 pin. And yes the guy who did my electrical work did the paper clip trick
  10. Alright well I tinkered with it for a few hours and it appears to be working. Thanks for your help!!
  11. What do you think the problem is? The GPU fan is spinning so I'd assume its functioning. Does it matter which HDMI port I have plugged into on the Akitio? Anything I did wrong?
  12. I am using a 2013 15" Retina MacBook Pro with the 750M, Akitio Thunder2, Gigabyte 970 Mini ITX, and EVGA PSU. I am running Windows 10 via Bootcamp on my MacBook Pro. Here are the pictures:
  13. I can't get the computer to recognize the GPU, I installed the drivers before plugging in everything and it won't recognize it. Any ideas?
  14. How do I boot into the GPU? It won't show up when I restart then hold option
  15. Okay I got it to fit and have everything ready. One last question? Do I need to plug an HDMI cable into the GPU or does everything go via thunderbolt?
