How to Set Up an External GPU (eGPU) on Windows 10


How to Set Up an External GPU (eGPU) on Windows 10

An external GPU (eGPU) is a device that allows you to connect a desktop graphics card to your laptop or PC via a Thunderbolt 3 or M.2 port. This can boost your gaming performance, enable VR support, and expand your display options. However, setting up an eGPU can be tricky and require some software tweaks. In this article, we will show you how to set up an eGPU on Windows 10 using DIY eGPU Setup 1.35, a versatile software that ensures your eGPU is configured and functions optimally.

What You Need

  • A laptop or PC with a Thunderbolt 3 or M.2 port that supports eGPU.

  • An eGPU enclosure that matches your port type and has enough power supply for your graphics card.

  • A desktop graphics card that fits in your eGPU enclosure and is compatible with your laptop or PC.

  • A monitor or TV that connects to your graphics card via HDMI, DisplayPort, or DVI.

  • A USB flash drive with at least 8GB of storage space.

  • DIY eGPU Setup 1.35 software, which you can purchase from for US$15.

Step 1: Install Your Graphics Card in the eGPU Enclosure

Follow the instructions that came with your eGPU enclosure and graphics card to install the card in the enclosure. Make sure the power supply is connected and the enclosure is switched off. Do not connect the enclosure to your laptop or PC yet.

Step 2: Create a Bootable USB Drive with DIY eGPU Setup 1.35

Download the DIY eGPU Setup 1.35 software from the email you received after purchasing it. Extract the zip file and copy the contents to your USB flash drive. Make sure the USB drive is formatted as FAT32 and has no other files on it. Rename the USB drive as "eGPU" for convenience.

Step 3: Boot from the USB Drive and Configure Your eGPU

Connect the USB drive to your laptop or PC and restart it. Press F12 or another key (depending on your system) to enter the boot menu and select the USB drive as the boot device. You should see a menu-driven interface of DIY eGPU Setup 1.35.

Follow the instructions on the screen and use the arrow keys and Enter key to navigate the menus. You may need to perform different steps depending on your system and eGPU configuration, such as:

  • Disabling your internal GPU (dGPU) if you have one.

  • Performing PCI compaction to resolve error 12 (cannot allocate resources).

  • Setting the PCIe link speed and width for optimal performance.

  • Loading a DSDT override to increase the memory allocation for your eGPU.

  • Initializing your graphics card before Windows boot to prevent errors or hangs.

  • Activating Nvidia Optimus or x1 compression if you want to use your laptop's internal display with your eGPU.

You can hit F1 over any menu item to get context-sensitive help. You can also refer to eGPU builds on for examples of how other users have configured their systems with DIY eGPU Setup 1.35.

Step 4: Chainload to Windows 10 and Install Graphics Drivers

Once you have configured your eGPU with DIY eGPU Setup 1.35, you can chainload to Windows 10 by selecting "Test Run" from the main menu. You should see Windows boot normally and detect your graphics card as a new device.

Install the latest graphics drivers for your card from Nvidia or AMD's website. You may need to disable driver signature enforcement if you are using a modified driver. Restart your system and check if your graphics card is working properly in Device Manager.
