I'm not sure what information you've been looking at, but the Arch
Wiki has a pretty extensive section on troubleshooting BumbleBee.
Also note that BumbleBee is not the only option for using dual
graphics cards on Linux (and has some drawbacks). See for more info.

When i first connected the egpu it worked, but it had the nouveau drivers, and after i installed the nvidia drivers and bumblebee it won't let me run the display. The odd thing is that it shows my 1070 when i use lspci and bumblebee doesn't show any errors. If anyone knows anything that could help it would be greatly appreciated.
