17 R5, not detecting AGA, but the graphic card works

Originally the graphic amplifier was able to be detected. However, I wasn't able to use the loopback mode. So I decided to reinstall the computer to see if it would solve the problem. Yet, it created another problem. Now the amplifier cannot be detected and the emblem does not light up anymore.

Furthermore, I can hot swap the internal gpu and external gpu without rebooting the computer.

After all, I was wondering if there is any fix for the amplifier to work properly?

Re: Not Detecting Graphic Amplifier, but the graphic card wo

Hi @Hstanez,

Make sure you follow the steps on this video to make sure the amplifier was setup in a proper way.

Also reinstall the Command Center and finally, make sure the BIOS is up up to date.
