Omen Accelerator GA1 - 1000 NL
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I purchased Hp Omen accelerator GA1-1000nl, I installed inside an NVIDIA GTX970 video card but after following step by step the whole installation guide and after inserting the Thunderbolt3 cable to the PC, in the Accelerator the leds light up for a second and then everything goes off again.
My notebook is an Asus Zenbook Pro UX580GE with 2 ports Thunderbolt3 (USB3 gen2 type C) as I have also specified the assistance ASUS contact me believing that the problem was the PC.
The drivers / firmware of the PC are all updated. The operating system and Windows 10 pro.
I also used HP Support Assistant as recommended in another post but it did not work.
The only Windows notification when I plug in the cable is "Display connection might be limited".
Best regards

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.

 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:

  • Have you tried removing the video card from the Accelerator and check the device?
  • What is the exact issue? is notebook shutdowns when connected to the PC?

Keep me posted for further assistance.

yes, I tried several times to remove and replace the video card; I also tried with another video card but the result was always the same.
When I connect the thunderbolt cable between the notebook and the Accelerator, it turns on for 0.5 seconds and then the lights, the fan and the video card remain off. On the notebook appears the notification at the bottom right that says: "Display connection might be limited", the notebook stays on.

Check you BIOS for settings for Thunderbolt...I had to set mine to something not default...then it found the card in the enclosure. I had to run it with this setting, sorry I have a Thinkpad P1 but not with it now so cant check, until a new BIOS and Thunderbolt firmware came out...and then I could set it back to its normal status.

 

I found the answer on Reddit while speaking with the US Omen tech support...and he did not know of this feature either..but I was able to see the card and load the drivers after making that change. 

 

If if your BIOS as TB3 setting also and resreach those.

Thanks for the reply.
I searched on the Reddit site and I tried various settings in the bios (security level on Thunderbolt configuration, secure boot, fast boot ...) but nothing has changed.

@aste73,

 

Let's start off by enabling Hardware accelerator from the control panel: 

 

1. Choose Start > Control Panel.
2. Double click Personalization and select Display Settings.
3. Click Advanced Settings.
4. Click Change Settings on the Troubleshooting tab.
5. Move the Hardware Acceleration slider to Enable

 

If you continue facing the issue, I recommend you follow the steps in the below article to set up the Omen Accelerator.

The graphic settings are managed by the Nvidia software and consequently in the control panel I have no "display setting" and the "Hardware Acceleration" is enabled.
I tried to disable the internal video card in the notebook (Nvidia 1050ti), but this is not possible through the bios.
