    There are two things I would like to try:
    One is Intel 7260 Wireless AC PCI-E, and the other is eGPU. Both won't work on my laptop because these are not on whitelist. So I am hoping to remove whitelist so anything I want can be installed.

    An eGPU will do nothing for that laptop. Processor won't run anything that you need a GPU for and has neither Thunderbolt or PCMCIA slot needed for eGPU option

    Hello, thank you for your response!

    I use something called EXP GDC (See here) which connects a graphic card to laptop via mini PCIE.

    1) But when I plug it, my laptop doesnt boot up. It doesn't even show logo, just black screen. So I thought it might be whitelist issue because I removed WIFI adapter and connected EXP GDC.

    2) When I tried connecting EXP GDC after putting the laptop into sleep mode, windows recognized graphic card, and installed a driver for it. But When checked device manager, it said something like 'not enough resource for this device', and graphic card didn't function.

    3) When I restarted after #2, the laptop didn't boot up, but same black screen like #1

    This is where I am stuck now.. Please write me if you have any opinion or suggestion!

    Thank you!!

    With an external GPU on a laptop with no dedicated graphics, your CPU must interpret the video. The Celeron 4W CPU in that laptop doesn't have enough power, or bandwidth, PCIe lanes to do this. That is why you get "not enough resource for this device"

    Hello, thank you very much for your response!
    Is there anything I can do to make it work, or it won't work no matter what?

    I do not think it will. If you have your heart set on this project ,you have a better chance by getting an 2nd to 4th gen i5 or i7 laptop on ebay for like $250 - $350

    Otherwise, save your money for a better laptop
