eGPU Being a Bad Boy :(

 Share

Hi,

There are a couple of issues I am having with my eGPU,

 

1) I can not control the RGB in Aorus Engine, the menu for the RGB is just not there

 

2) When I plug it in while my laptop is on, it freezes and everything stops. It only works when shutdown then plug it in

 

My laptop is the Lenovo Yoga 730 13" and the eGPU I'm using is Gigabyte's Aorus RX 580 Gaming Box.

I have looked everywhere and could not find anyone with either of the listed problems, so I decided to land here. Any advice would greatly be appreciated, Cheers!

Did the eGPU work previously or is this brand new? Just throwing this out, any chance you are connecting through a USB 3 cable instead of a Thunderbolt 3 cable?

2) Some games (eg. Euro Truck Simulator) aren't using my RX 580, but are using my HD graphics

Should be driver related issue

I made sure all of my drivers are up to date, I even reinstalled any driver I thought would effect it.
