Win 8.1 High Load Crash (Solved)

Recommended Posts

@Enano Ah Ok, I mean I have used DDU utility to completely uninstall the drivers and and have the d750m disabled. I have under locked it to 84% and reduced clock speeds by 150mhz but kombustor still crashes after 10-15 mins.

 

After reading through this forum some more it appears another user has had trouble with the  750ti and a series of constant kernel panics. With that in mind I am acquiring a friends evga superclocked 4gb 960 to see if it'll work with a powered graphics card rather than through the riser. It is encouraging that you have a similar setup and it works!

 

my apologies for the constant barrage of questions but you are being incredibly gracious on the handling of them. Thank you

@p3nzancef1ier Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. 75 min is a little intensive on the video card to be honest. Where you monitoring temps? I used to have that same issue on my desktop when rendering with my old zotac and it was due to over heating. If that's the case, just clean it out. 90% of the issues with hardware get solved with a good old clean up! Well at least that's on my experience.

Btw, don't worry about asking, that's a community for! Always, post the solutions on the thread for the next guy 
:)

@Enano of course I will! Regarding the 960 did you manage to trim the 6 pin power connector down so it would fit within the akitio case? And have you had any cooling issues?

@p3nzancef1ier No man, I just used the board and made a custom case for it. Before that, I cat the inner part for it to fit and discarded the rest of it. Looked awful, but it was functional for such a huge card.

 

The card wouldn't fit at all inside the akitio. Like seriously, no way in hell. About temp issues, none at all and I live in the Caribbean, so you can imagine. MSI did a great job, it never exceeded 60 C.

@davidexD Do you have a friend with a desktop? If you do, Go ahead and test the GPU. If it's working correctly. then the issue is the PSU. Just in case, can you describe your whole rig? Laptop specs, PSU, GPU and confirm which enclosure you have? Hopefully it's not a bottle neck issue.

The psu is a xfx 450w with 34amps on the 12's, not used brand new. Mbp retina 13 i5 2,7 8gb ram the gpu is a gtx 780 i have two risers on, might be the risers?

@davidexD It shouldn't be the raisers. I gotta ask: Are the fans spinning when you connect the card? Is your system recognizing the card?

 

TBH, I'm pretty much out of ideas until you can test it on a desk top. Also, if you can sent a few pics of the rig just to check it out and the error you are getting. I might be able to come up with something.

any recommendation? I'm using GTX 750Ti but always crashes for about 5-7 mins playing dota 2. I tried everything by using psu but still showing same issue. After reading this forum page, I have this feeling that is a driver issue. I will now going to downgrade my driver, what version is okay to try for GTX 750Ti?il

 

Update: after downgrading the driver still having the same issue....while playing the screen is freezing then hearing a changing grounded sounds....please advise

@andhie133128 Just in case I missed it... what is your eGPU setup? AKiTiO, 750Ti and which PSU?

Hi @Dschijn, I'm using HP2570p (3rd Gen Intel Core + 8GB RAM) to EXP GDC v8.0 and Zotac GTX 750 Ti 2GB DDDR5. My power supply is either 400W ATX PSU and 60W power adapter since the power consumption of GTX 750 Ti is only 60W but either of this showing same issue so I'm sure it's not the psu problem.

Uh I am not familiar with the EXP GDC v8.0, but you should only use one PSU. 60W is not enough, can you make sure to only use the 400W?

What 400W PSU is it? Sounds like an old/noname PSU.

@Dschijn, basically you only need the power input and supply the enough wattage for the egpu...the gtx 750 Ti itself only consume a 60w power...Even you use a 250W, 300W, 450W or 700W power supply, it's only consume 60W.

@andhie133128 The card might consume 60, but you need 25 for the PCIe, Also, using 2 power supplies tend to cause interference. You should try moding a cable. There is a really useful thread on how to do an adapter to use the PSU you mentioned.

 

Btw, don't get desperate, there are a lot of drivers that you can actually try. I had to try at least 8 or so, if I recall correctly, before one fixed the issue. Try monitoring with the after burner all the parameters and you might know exactly what the issue is. Just run the kombustor until it crashes. (Voltage load, CPU usage, CPU temp, GPU usage, GPU temp, etc...)

 

Finally, if you have a friend with a desktop, try it there or do a small testing partition to test drive the little fellow as a last resource without wiping your system (which I did after the first 3 drivers attempts :too_sad:). If the GPU is faulty, don't worry, Zotac has a good customer support service.

 

Sorry for late response, but just got out of work. Hope that any of this helped.

In theory yes, in the real world: not always

 

Was just trying to give you an idea to change it to use only 1 good PSU. Even a 750Ti can have power peaks over 60W!

@Enano @Dschijn thank you guys, currently I'm using msi after burner almost 3 hours playing dota 2...i don't change the settings of the power and temperature just only the core clock and memory clock -502... still using the 60 power adapter....what is your opinion guys?

I think this the wrong section in the forum to get propper help.

Also in my understanding of TB absed eGPUs you should swap the 60W PSU and only use the much bigger PSU. Using the 60W PSU might be the reason for instability, if the card has peaks loads higher than 60W and the PCIe adapter also needs some power.

Why the topic says it Solved ? as i see it didnt.

 

Hi all please help me for this issue, i have the same issue with my gtx 1060 3gb with beast exp gdc 8.4d, as i see the problem is not with psu or exp gdc or card, the problem is i dont know why but my msi afterburner works well with -400 core clock and -502 memory clock, but it changes values automatically and when it changes automatically card gets overload and shut itself. Is there any chance to lock this msi afterburner ?

Thank u all for any helps.

      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.

      Hi all, 
       
      I'm green as here, but been closely following peoples implementations for eGPU and MBP. After finding some inspiration from P-Mac here, I decided to build one. I knocked this all out for around $600 AUD. Being from Australia, it was hard to come by a Thunder2 box. So I bit the bullet and bought one from the US as cheap as I could find it. Picked up a second hand MSI Gaming GTX960, the twin frozr fan edition, also overclocked edition, cost me $200. Grabbed a Corsair VS550 PSU too for $80. I'm pretty handy with electronics and good with a soldering iron so I thought, no worries mate. Anyway, after waiting 3 weeks for the Akitio to arrive, it finally showed up and I knocked this all out in about 1.5 hours. 
       
      Opening up the Akitio
      I unboxed the package, and opened it up. These things are TINY, I thought. I knew I'd have to open the case up to make the GPU fit, but jesus, the GPU dwarfs this thing. I removed the fan from the Akitio and set it aside, probably never to be used again. A lot of people have just bent the back plate of the Akitio away, then gaff taped it up, etc. I didn't like that idea, so I took to it with a dremel and cutting wheel with the box facing DOWN, as grinding sparks and PCB's tend to disagree with each other. I cut a decent line into the steel, then bent it away with some pliers, then fatigue snapped the cut line. 

       
      Inserting the GPU
      Pretty straightforward. Removed the 2 retainer screws for the PCI cards, pushed the card firmly into place. I re-inserted the two screws and nipped them up with a screwdriver. 
       
      Easy peasy. 

       
      Wiring up the CPU PSU
      Now, I've seen all sorts of dodgy behaviour like jumping PSU's on with paperclips. That's live power, flapping around sensitive electronic components. I didn't like that idea. I also didn't like the idea of chopping up the PSU cables in case I ever want to re-purpose the PSU. So, I bought a molex to something connector (I can't remember the name) and chopped the red and black wires off at the molex plug end, chopped the yellow and black at the something end. Got some automotive twin core 3mm wire and a barrel plug I bought from JayCar and soldered the red to the centre post and the black to the outer post. Heat shrink over the exposed solder connections and electrical tape inside the barrel plug to ensure that it didn't short out, BAM, one 12V barrel plug to power the Akitio. Plugged the PCI-E connector into the GPU, simple. To "hot-wire" the PSU, I used a jumper wire and two electrical bulkhead crimp terminals. They're a little big to fit in the ATX connector of the PSU, but I squished them up with pliers and they fit in there snug, no exposed metal to short out on the case, or anywhere else, with the added bonus of the entire setup being plug and play. 

       
      Plugging in and recognising
      I used the instructions here (see below) to get OSX to recognise and install the drivers. Followed the instructions, no problems. Had to go and disable system protection out of the recovery partition, but that's no biggie. I re-started, flicked the switch on the PSU with the eGPU plugged in, took a little while to get through the load screen, but away it went. I ran a benchmark on Cinebench, got 77fps which was an improvement over the 59fps I would get out of the GT750m. 
       
      Teething issues
      Being new as hell to all of this, I'm still working out how to tweak settings etc. I opened up WoW, being an avid player, and expected to be dazzled. I copped a heaping load of disappointment when my recommended settings went to 1 from 4, and the game ran like a wet turd. However, after some playing around, trying a different monitor, enabling automation of the eGPU in the script, I'm getting a solid 40-60fps at high, not ultra, settings at 1080p. 
      I'm having often problems booting out of sleep, the computer crashes and won't turn back on without a hard reset, no boot chime or anything. Sometimes switching off the PSU to kill the eGPU is needed to get into the OSX loading screen, then flicking it on once it's loading is needed. Sometimes it works fine. This seems to be common but I'll keep looking for fixes for waking up from sleep. Even with NoSleep enabled and not closing the lid, eventually it'll go dark and won't wake up. However sustained use and gaming doesn't kill the computer, so I don't think it's an overheating issue. Also keeping a close eye on temps everywhere and setting the fans to max when gaming, as I always do as these things overheat like crazy during gaming. 
       
       
      To be done
      At the moment the Akitio is sitting open on the desk and the PSU next to it with wires fucking everywhere. It's messy and cluttered and I hate it. I've got access to tools and equipment some probably don't, so I'm going to build a custom case for both the PSU and the Akitio, and put some nice big fans on it to keep it all nice and cool under high load, hopefully preventing the GPU from needing to use it's active cooling at all, thus letting it work without strain. 

       
       
      Any tips or advice would be great!
       
      Updates
      Managed to pick up a GTX 970 locally for the same price as I paid for the 960. Same card build, MSI Twin Frozr fans etc, slotted right in with no changes needed. Getting 57 fps on furmark within OSX, 82 fps out of cinebench, which is a slight improvement over the 960. I've upped the settings in WoW and it's running between 50-60 fps no worries. 
      I also installed windows to try and get some benchmarks done, however furmarking is crashing the whole show and requiring a hard reset. I can get furmark to run in OSX though through some command lines found from the guys at geek3d.com. Windows has way more trouble posting the eGPU from startup, and has A LOT of trouble rebooting/shutting down. Really re-enforcing my love for OSX but I would like to play some higher end titles that simply aren't available on OSX in the future. Got Unigine to finally install (had a lot of issues downloading the entire file for some reason) and ran that on the 970. Didn't get to test it on the 960.

      Hi!
       
      I've currently got my Akitio Thunder 2 + MBPr setup working beautifully with Windows 10 - except for one annoying issue.
      Sometimes when I boot up Windows 10, the OS will try to output on the display output of my eGPU (GTX 960) instead of on the internal display.
      This means that I can't log into the OS and that I have to force-reboot.
       
      Sometimes I time the bootup correctly, and everything works perfectly, but sometimes it doesn't - which is very annoying.

      Do any of you guys know a way to force Windows 10 to use the internal display - always - even if an eGPU is plugged in (basically forced Optimus)?
    • By Murfin
      Hi, everyone!
      Today, after two days of torture, I set eGPU. But the joy was short-lived...
       
      However, in order:
      I have Acer v3-571G with dGPU GT 730m. I deactived this card in Setup 1.30 that i can use Optimus with eGPU.
      eGPU: GTX 960 4GB. (EXP GDC v 8.3)
       
       
      But after the test, I was confused.
      All due to the fact that the MSI Afterburner has shown that the GPU is used by 98%, but the GPU is not involved at all. 0% Always
      I test in CS:GO, Watch Dogs, GTA 5.
       
      In Watch Dogs eGPU better, but I think it can be more.
      In CS:GO, my dGPU was much better... 
      In GTA5 results are approximately equal, but eGPU a little bit better.
       
      I expected more from this decision. It can is possible to solve this problem? Maybe I made a mistake during the installation?
       
      Best regards.

      Hello all,
       
      I am new in this area (eGPU) and have some issues. When I Google my problems, this forum pops out to me. After review some posts, I still cannot figure out my problems, so I decide to register on the site and ask my questions here.
      Those are my parts: 
       
      Lenovo Thinkpad x230 with i7-3520M, 16GB RAM, Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000
      EXP GDC BEAST, Expresscard
      EVGA 500 W1 80+, 500W Continuous Power, Power Supply
      Gigabyte GTX 960 Overclocked 4 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card GV-N960WF2OC-4GD

       
      My problems are:
      When I pluged in the Expresscard, the computer can catch the graphics card, and it told me to restart the computer if I want to use it. After I restarted the computer, it worked! The fans on the graphics card spun, and I can see the screen in the external monitor, and it showed me that I was using GTX 960 now. I tried to watch the movie, and it worked well. But the fans on the graphics card stopped spinning. I am not sure it is normal or not, but my computer still worked fine.
      HOWEVER, when I tried to play the video game, it worked at first. But after about half hour, it would suddenly shut down, then restart the computer. At this time the graphics card did not work, so I have to use the internal LCD. I was trying to re-start the graphics card, but it still did not work and it was a little warm. I have to wait for some time to use the graphics card and the whole kit again.
       
      Does anyone know how this happen? It worked for a long time for movie(at least 1.5hrs), but it only worked for 30min for game.
       
      I also tried to change in BIOS. Inside "POWER" I think there is "PCI Express Power management", and the default is "enable". I tried to change it into "disable", but the result is still the same. I tried this change because I thought this is referred to "Disable PCIe Power Saving", but I am not sure. Or does anyone know where should I change?
       
      I would very much appreciate your help in this case.
       
      Thank you in advance!
