Q: re: wireless card for Thinkcentre M91p 7052 desktop tower (MT-M 7052 - A8U)

The desktop currently can only access the internet using the hardwired RJ 45 connection, but I would like to add the ability to access the internet wirelessly by installing a wireless card in one of the available PCI express slots. I would like to know what wireless cards are available and compatible with this model. Thank you!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I purchased the M91p 7052-A7U tower because of the expansion capabilities.  I would like to add a second internal SATA hard drive, but find it very frustrating to find the part number of bracket to install a 2nd HDD.  This M91p tower is not really nearly as expandable as Lenovo would lead you to believe due to lack of necessary mounting brackets / cables.  Will a generic 5.25" to 3.5" bracket work to install a 3.5" SATA drive below the DVD drive shipped with the tower?  It appears I will also need a SATA data cable, but the required power connector is already available in the PC.  Is that correct?  Also what are my options if I wanted to install the 2nd HDD 3.5" HDD in the open slot similar to the first HDD shipped with the PC? Thank you for any assistance.

Hey everyone, I am trying to install new parts onto my workstation. I accidently unplugged the cables that connect to the power switch and such. I was wondering if there was a manual for the Motherboard that would show me exactly where to plug the switches in at. I have attached a picture just to show what I mean (hard for me to explain sorry) This is a picture of another manual that wasn't the right motherboard.  Thanks for the help! -Tyler

I used to love it because it was so fast and I could do plenty of tasks with it at the same time (e.i. listening to music while I translate some docs, searching on internet looking for words, forums, etc.) But last year, it started to reboot/restart by itselft. I realized it happens when I see videos on youtube (but not always), when I check some websites with music or when the website has too much information and pics and similars (for instance, online news websites, official websites, etc.) Last year also, it had a sound coming form the CPU...It was like the ventilator I think, but now not any more. When I ran the examination everything seems fine so I really dont know what is wrong with it... Someone had experience something similar???

A:ThinkCentre M91p motherboard and ECC RAM??

My question goes like this : On a out-of-warranty ThinkCentre M91p, if we replace the standard CPU (i5) with a socket compatible Xeon CPU, will the motherboard support ECC RAM?

No.  It's the Intel Chipset that interfaces to memory, and only workstation and server Chipsets support ECC.  Check the specs for your desktop Chipset if you like. 
 
Also, just because a processor will fit into the socket, does not mean it will be supported by the BIOS.   Sometimes there is overlap between ThinkCentres and ThinkStations which do use Xeons.   If so, that Thinkstation model will be listed on your BIOS download page, but for unknown reasons that upgrade does not always work.

The M91p came with an optical drive and a primary hard disk drive preinstalled.

I'm referring to this "hard disk drive cage" and chassis thing with the blue brackets, that allows easy removal of the hard drive.

Hello, I cannot find the way to install an AMD FirePro v3900 on a ThinkCentre M91p.I need such board for sharing the desktop between two monitors having a DisplayPort and a DVI and don't have enough time to purchase another board. On the M92p, I can use it by going in the BIOS, set the video settings to "PEG" (PCI-e Graphics Device), enable Multi-Monitor support. The cards works and I can later install the driver (coming with AMD Catalyst) to obtain the possibility extending the desktop to two screens. But on the M91p, it does not work : the screen connected to the PCI Express graphic card reports "no signal" no matter if I connect the display with the DVI or the DisplayPort. I also tried setting the video to "IGD" (Internal Graphics Device) or to "Auto" with the graphic card plugged, but connecting the cable to the M91p's native VGA or DisplayPort, with the hope that I could see something and install the driver for the graphic card. But there is no signal to the native ports when the video card is plugged. I also trid using AMD Radeon cards which were working with ThinkCenter M91p or M92p.One with HDMI+DVI works.One with DisplayPort+DVI doesn't.I need a board with DisplayPort (DP) as most of my screens have DP and no HDMI. The drivers are up to date (including the chipset). Only the BIOS was not updated.Should I update it ? Or does the problem have other origin (e.g. power) ? Thank you very much for your help.

I checked the slots and everything is plugged in as it should be. According to some similar topics, the GPU is too strong for the BIOS. Is there any way to fix this?

M91p BIOS has two modes, UEFI and a compatibility? mode, I suggest you try both.  Also, check that the BIOS setting for the Video Devices is set to [AUTO], or has the Multi-Monitor Support = Enabled.  Otherwise, it may only use the internal graphics, ignoring the card.

A:ThinkCentre: recommissioned system will not boot from HDD; BIOS, AMT, PXE, M91p

I'd recommend going into the UEFI, which replaces the old BIOS standard, and resetting to optimal defaults, which will likely fix the issue. You also should update it, if you have access to a Windows system use rufus to format a bootable dos usb stick and copy the contents of the USB Drive UEFI BIOS Flash Package so you won't need Windows (or a CD) on the actual system to do updates. The current version is 58 vs the 43 you have on there now. By the way you can also use rufus to install Windows to a usb drive for 'Windows To Go' mode which is quite useful at times, especially if you don't want Windows on the system itself. You can download a Windows 10 iso directly from Microsoft's website and via rufus  'Windows To Go' mode isn't limited to just the Enterprise version. CHANGES for 9HKT58A/9HJT58A

How do I fix my Lenovo ThinkCentre High Performance M91P Desktop Computer that froze, fan speed increases and won't display on the monitor anymore?Hello, today my computer froze and now I can't see the screen anymore. It's been freezing multiple times but now after I unplugged it, it won't display anymore. I have a meeting tomorrow on this computer! This is the last time I buy a "certified refurbished" computer on Amazon !  Also, when I turned the computer back on the fan speed increased. It was getting louder and louder. I thought it was going to explode! Well I repeatedly hold down the power button and unplug the power cord and that's not working. That's what I would do every time my screen froze in the past. The screen would freeze, I couldn't move the mouse either. The light on the desktop is on, I tightened the cord of the monitor to make sure it's connected properly, and the mouse light is still on. The exact desktop name: Lenovo ThinkCentre Premium High Performance M91P Desktop Computer, Intel Core i5 Quad-Core Processor 3.1GHz, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, Windows 10 Home (Certified Refurbished) ...and I purchased it on Amazon. I bought this desktop in April of this year and now I don't have product support via amazon anymore. I can't find the serial number on this computer.

Having a hard time finding a part number for the secondary hard drive cage.  This would be the cage that is L-shaped and attaches to the base of the tower.  For now I was able to put the 2nd hard drive in the card reader bay, but would prefer to mount as designed as I'm concerned with the heat associated with one hard drive mounted directly about the other.thanksjoe

A:Secondary hard drive cage for Thinkcentre M91p 4524

Since no one ever answered this, and I have one in front of me...The sticker says the part number is 43N9680The stampings in the metal say 1B03AFY00 REV B and 2G266-01 REV B

My daughter has a M91P model 7052-A9G serial number S4VEK82 running Windows XP SP3 for compatibility with legacy software.  Her existing monitor is connected via VGA and she now wishes to use a Dell U2715H for better definition.
When she connects the new monitor to the display port on the M91P it is not recognised by the system and the video is still only active on the VGA port.
She is 80 miles from me and I support her using Team Viewer which enabled me to switch the desktop display properties to digital but still no output on the Dell so I changed it back to VGA so that she could work.
The new monitor and display port cable has been tested on a friend's computer where it worked OK.
 
Has anybody met this before and how did you resolve it.
 
Many thanks, Firkle

Solved!

Go to Solution.

A:ThinkCentre M91p: will not connect to Dell U2715H monitor via DisplayPort, no signal (DP ver. 1.1)

When I Googled for your problem, I found this on the Dell forum.  The built-in Intel graphics on M91p has DP 1.1: 
 



RE: U2515H - "no signal coming from your computer"





This happened to me when I enabled DP 1.2 option in the menu.
If that is the case, you do not have a DP 1.2 compatible hardware and software/OS. (perhaps if you are using a linux machine)
 
When your monitor tells no signal... push a menu button for about 10 seconds. It will show you other input sources, keep pushing. Then it will bring a menu to disable DP 1.2. Disable it. Restart the computer.
Hope this helps

I recently (November 2018) purchased the following system through Amazon: 
Lenovo ThinkCentre Premium High Performance M91P Desktop Computer, Intel Core i5 Quad-Core Processor 3.1GHz, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, Windows 10 Home (Certified Refurbished) (This is the product description from the Amazon website.) 
 
From the Lenovo support website, their lookup tool gave me the following info specific to my PC:
Serial #: xxxxxxxx
Machine Type Model:  7033A25
 
According to www.datamemorysystems.com the maximum capacity is 16GB.
And the memory type is: 4 x 4GB DDR3-1333 (PC3-10600)  512x64  CL9  1.5v  240pin  DIMM
 
I provide this information for the benefit of others who need this info and to see if anyone disagrees before I go out and buy it.
 
Thanks and good luck,

Here's just a little background info:
(This post is not a complaint.  So far, I'm happy with the PC.  It has a couple of glitches but I expected as much since it's a refurb.)
 
It actually arrived with 7GB RAM and 2TB HDD.  (I guess they traded off 1GB of RAM for 1TB of HDD?) In my experience you always install RAM in pairs or, at least, even numbers.  There are four slots on this machine filled as follows: 2GB+2GB+2GB+1GB.  Just seems odd.
 
When I first booted up the machine I was getting memory errors every five or ten minutes.  It was a pop-up window saying something like "Cannot write data to m... Read more

I have a Lenovo 4480B1U, which is a ThinkCentre small form factor M91p desktop with integrated video.  I wanted to add a discreet video card to it for playing Minecraft, because playing it with the integrated video is choppy at times.  I installed a low profile 1GB AMD RADEON HD 7470, and when I turn the PC on, there is no video whatsoever.  I made sure to go into the bios and set the graphics to use the PCI-e slot.  If I take the video card out and switch back to the integrated video, it works fine.  Any ideas?  Can anyone recommend another video card I can get for this machine?  I won't want to spend more than $50.  Thanks in advance!
