  1. Hi all- At risk of creating yet another error 43 thread, I have a few questions or issues that I haven't been able to resolve following all the various guides and tutorials. I have a Quadro K610M in a custom PCB connected to my Thinkpad X61 running Windows 10 x64. I know that the PCB has some issues, but I've accidentally gotten further than this before and now lost that progress. I've done so far: - DSDT override to achieve Large Memory works, this solved Error 12 (on the other hand, what drive is "v:" where I should put the DSDT.AML? Startup.bat can't ever find it...) - Setup 1.3 for PCI compaction, I set it to 56.25GB and then said compact both iGPU and eGPU into 32-bits. I've tried various other combinations without success. - Using driver 362.13, the installation went fine. For the life of me I can't figure out what to do differently, I've reinstalled the driver with DDU several times to the same effect. Anyone have particular suggestions? Thanks in advance! Rafael
  2. Hi, I've got a Thinkpad X61 (C2D, 2GB RAM) running Win 7 Pro SP1 to which I'd like to connect my eGPU. I've made my own PCB (MXM <-> mPCIe adapter) so I'm testing it, but I have too many variables for the moment. This is a clean install of Windows. I have an NVIDIA Quadro K610M card and have installed driver package 364.51. I have done the Large Memory DSDT override successfully and conquered error 43 using the PCI dump in Setup 1.30. It detects the GPU fine and initializes it, once I get to Windows everything *seems* to work, but only if I disable my internal Intel GPU (ok for now, I'll fix that later). Device Manager tells me I have a working NVIDIA card. GPU-Z detects it fine as well. The issue I'm having is that I'm not getting anything at all on the VGA port. I realize this very well might be a HW issue, but I'm not convinced yet. I would like to try to use the NVidia Control Panel to verify what's going on, but I can't open it. nvcplui.exe is running in the Task Manager, but I don't get anything else. I read that this is a known issue with no particular fix and I wanted to see what folks here thought, given that this is being used for an eGPU. By the way, the normal "Adjust resolution" dialogue doesn't detect any 2nd screen, but then it seems to be specific to the iGPU (which is listed as the hardware under "Advanced") so it shouldn't work anyway. Is there a way to get the built-in Windows Control Panel to detect / use the new GPU? Any input is appreciated, and further clarification gladly provided. Thanks! Rafael

    eGPU experiences [version 2.0]

    Hi all- I'm a little new to this topic and I have driver questions. I designed myself a board to accomodate an MXM GPU and I'v e installed a Nvidia Quadro K1000M in it, connected to a Thinkpad X61 (C2D T8300 with X3100, so no Optimus but that's ok) running Windws 7 64-bit. I was able to install all the latest Nvidia drivers, but I'm not able to start any of the tools (nView, Control Panel). I get the C++ Runtime error. I'm working on updating all my drivers, but so far no luck. So my questions are: - Do I need special / modded drivers for this? - If I have no Intel HD, can it be made to work at all? I'm not interested in Optimus / mirroring to the internal LCD, just need the new VGA port provided by the card. - Anything I might be missing regarding driver installation and setting up? Let me know if I can provide more information, I'd be happy to do so. Thanks! Rafael
