You notice this is attached to a WWAN second pci-e slot and not the wi-fi card slot. On HP laptops the pci-e wifi slot is for a single purpose; wifi. Any other device you attach to the port will not work. 

 

I have been pretty vocal about my reaction to this device. See here:

Hello, I have HP Pavilion dm4 3010en beats edition.

This is dual gpu laptop it has hd7470m and intel , my hd7470m inside the laptop died and after week I finaly made it funcional again but intel grafics are not good enough for my use. Then I heard about egpu and though that because I have one empty pci port and one with wifi card in laptop. So do you think this would work?

huh? System do have a lifespan usage this goes to all laptops makers not just HP. If something is going to fail it will fail and if you fail to do proper system hardware maintenance and keep vents and thermal paste up to date then failure is coming down the line.

That is a myth no such thing exists. Your choices are to pay to have it fixed or get a replacement board with the video problem fixed. Or buy a new system that has switchable graphics that you can use. And if your gaming from what the posting sounds like your going to have to put a huge invest in a Gaming Laptop starting at 2000US to play dedicated games.

Actually you're a myth. eGPUs exist. I've seen and worked with bits of the technology in use but the sad fact is that HP white lists it's mPCIe slots. Only thing that can utilize the White Listed slots are HP's own approved components. Some mPCIe slots are not even true mPCIe slots, they are paired links with USB interface. What you're stating is a frabricated life expectancy of hardware. It is true that older hardware fails to become relevent as time passes, but highly maintained equipment does not fail immediately especially in four year of time.


Modding an HP bios can in fact remove the White List, but it's not advised because there is a high risk of bricking the system.

Can you elaborate on the whole bios modding thing? I'm trying to decide if it's worth it to even attempt it (what's involved, the steps, the risks, etc). I have an HP Envy DV7 with an i7-3630QM, 12 GB RAM, and integrated graphics but I haven't been able to find a lot of info on modding bios for this exact purpose.
