I have a HP Pavilion 15 - AB289SA Laptop

I wanted to install an external GPU, so I bought an RTX 970, the EXP GDC Beast device and a power supply.

But when I removed the wifi card and put in the Egpu cable (NGFF M.2) the laptop won't start. Instead a white light on the caps lock key flashes.

When I removed the cable and put the wifi card back the laptop worked again normally.

The CAPS lock button is flashing with 5 long, then 3 short flashes
