Thinkpad X1 Tablet 3rd Gen Thunderbolt3 egpu issues!

2019-12-30, 21:21 PM

Hello,

 

I have an Arous GTX 1070 egpu that is no loger working with my X1 tablet (I have connected the same egpu with an HP laptop and it is working flawlessly so I know it is not the problem).

 

Until recently the egpu used to work with the x1 with no problems however as of now when I connect it togther with the power cable, it gets recognized by the thunderbolt software but it is does not fully power on (the fan spin for few seconds)   and some apps on the tablet start freezing.

 

I have reset windows 10 and also tried to update all the related Thunderbolt  software with no luck i'm not sure what else I can do ! 

 

Your help is appreciated

Hi ,

 

Regarding the issue it has been reported that tb3 console cannot supply proper charging power and you can check out the discussion here.

thank you for your feedback, the thing is I always connect the tablet power supply when I use the EGPU as I'm aware that not enough power can be supplied.
I have been using the EGPU for almost a year and I didn't have any issues until recently :(

Hi ,

 

Possibly the Windows updates made changes to your system as even the power delivery and settings are changed by it. Have you tried doing a factory reset?

Yes I did a full factory reset and I have also reinstalled the Thunderbolt related  software wit no use, I believe that maybe the latest Thunderbolt software  is the main cause of the problem especially NVM one however lenovo support website is no longer showing older versions so i couldn't really know.
