I'm sorry for my extreme noobishness, but im doing a egpu and I have no idea where my mpcie slots are can you please tell me where they are? I know the downsides to doing a egpu. I would build a new computer but i dont have money I just want to play world of warcraft. I have a toshiba satellite L455 by the way. Thanks in advance


I took pictures but i dont think they can be uploaded; sorry for the poor images.

Pic is taken off google so ignore the other stuff on it. The green chip is the wireless card and is plugged into the mpcie.

Most if not all laptops have access to the mpcie slot on the bottom of the case and is always used for the wireless card.

The mini PCI-E slot is generally an internal slot for wireless cards on laptops. I don't think there is a way to access it unless there is a specific cover for it on the underside of the laptop.

thanks for the answer. On device manager it said i have six mpcie slots mpcie as in mini peripheral component interconnect express. So the wireless card has one but where would the others be at.

You don't have 6 slots, you have 1. It's similar to how device manager shows 2 cpus on a dual core or a bunch of usb when you don't have that many, I won't go into the reasoning but you should get the point.
