GPU detected, installed drivers but gpu still doesn't work

Question asked by shadowblazr432 on Aug 18, 2020

So for my old laptop, i just did a clean factory reset of the laptop to reset and clear any unnecessary stuff on the laptop. I had plugged an eGPU (exp gdc beast) and put a GIGABYTE radeon rx 570 graphics card into the PCI-E x16 slot. After booting up the laptop, it managed to detect my graphics card. I then decided to install the driver for it (Adrenalin 2020 edition 20.8.2). After restarting the laptop, I disabled the dedicated nvidia graphics card for my laptop but my amd gpu is at 0% utilization even when apps are opened. From time to time, the gpu spikes from 0 to 100 and back down again. I can open the radeon software, it says the driver is up to date. Opening games through it still causes the laptop to use the integrated graphics and not the amd gpu. 


What i don't understand is that even though it's not doing anything the gpu still gets hot and turn it fans on from time to time. Please help, i really want this to work.
