Q: Lenovo H515 and 505, graphics card

Hi all, my son wants to upgrade his PC to a better graphics card. I have looked online and the card he wants suggests that his PC needs a PCI express based PC 1 X16 lane graphics card slot on motherboard. As you can probably tell - I am a complete duffer on this stuff, so I wondered if I could pick the brains of you learned folk and see if someone can advise me? CheersDon

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.)

Hi DonMaidment,

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!


You will need to look on two things

- Compatible Graphics
Here are some compatible graphics adapter from the Lenovo H515 Maintenance Manual
If you are going to purchase a Video card that's not on this list, I suggest you do a test First before purchasing it as I'm not too sure if other Graphics model will work.


- Power Supply
Your Power Supply must match the Videocard Requirement,
or else you will need to upgrade the power supply as well.

Hello,I can't seem to find specific information about this pc related to this topic. I have a client that wants to have a hdmi port and dual monitor installed. I looked everywhere in the bios settings, I tried using a usb-to-vga adapter & and vga, dvi-d cable & vga (this mirrors both monitors, but cannot extend the display). When I changed the settings on the bios to use the built in graphics, it gives me the option to enable multiple monitors but cannot use my pcie graphic card. If i select to use the pcie graphic card, i cannot use the built in graphic ports or the usb-to-vga adapter (it does not see the other monitor) and also if I use the dvi adpater and the vga it mirrors the display. I'm guessing that the bios does not support dual graphic cards but thought of asking here. The reason the client wants this is to be able to connect a projector using hdmi and to have dual monitors. Any information will be greatly appreaciate it. Thank you.

I have a lenovo g50 70 with an i3 processor and i have a question: how can i find if i have the amd graphic card in my laptop? Is nowhere to be seen in device manager. I only have the intel graphics. On specs it says that i have a dexicated graphic. But after installing the drivers, nothing came out. I did install drivers in proper order. Is there any way to see if i have that graphics(amd)? Where is located on motherboard? Or do i have a slot for dedicated graphic card on the motherboard?

 I have a Lenovo H50-55 (AMD) dekstop with a built into the motherboard graphics card.  I want to install a higher end graphics card into the PCI express slot.  I have upgraded the power supply to a 500 watt PSU and added 8GB of ram for a total of 16.  I have two graphics cards that I already have and I have tried:  a Galaxy Nvidia GeForce 210 1GB DDR2 card; and a Zotac 9400GT 1 GB 128 BIT DDR2 card.  In both cases after I install the card there is no video either through the unit's built-in ports or the new card's ports.  I have tried resetting the BIOS to AGD or PEG (the only available settings besides auto) with no result.  I do not see an option to bypass the motherboard's video ports in the setup.  Any advice on how to get a new video card working would be appreciated.  The two cards I am using are older so is it that I need a newer card?  Thank you

Hello, I've been having a problem where my graphics card is disabled for my computer and I don't know why. I've tried downloading different/older drivers, I've tried disabling and then reenabling the graphics card, I've looked around the internet and nobody seems to have the a solution for this problem. When I go to the device management menu on my computer it says that the device (the graphics card) is completely updated, enabled, and working properly. But when I go on the Crimson menu for AMD, it tells me that it is disabled. Whenever I try to play a video game on my computer and I go to the graphics options menu, the video game tells me that it is using the integrated graphics instead of the AMD graphics and I have no option to switch. I'm attaching several screen shots to this post so that you can better see my point. Is there any way this could be fixed without me having to send my computer back to lenovo? I am running Windows 10. Thank you very much for your time.  These are the pictures

I recently purchased a Lenovo G510 laptop with Windows 8.1. I've had only one major issue with it, where I can't use the AMD Radeon graphics which should be on my computer. When I load up Speccy, only the Intel HD Graphics 4600 shows up; the same happens when I look for the AMD card in Device Manager. I want to be able to use my AMD Radeon Graphics though.

A:Lenovo G510 Graphics Card(s) issues

CCC Switchable Graphics






On computers with an Intel power-saving GPU and an ATI high-performance GPU, Dynamic Mode switchable graphics is configured using the Catalyst Control Center software.

To maximize the energy efficiency or if you typically use programs that have lower graphical requirements (such as word processing or spreadsheet programs), you do not need to make any changes to the settings in the Catalyst Control Center software. The computer uses the power-saving GPU by default for most applications. You can still run high-performance programs, videos, and games in default mode but you are likely to notice lower frame rates, dropped frames, and choppy animations and transitions.
Applications that have higher graphical requirements (such as 3D video games), work better using the high-performance GPU. Graphics intensive software, videos, and games run at their optimum settings using the high-performance GPU.
Using the high-performance GPU on battery power will shorten the battery's effective usage time. The high-performance GPU generates a noticeable amount of heat while running graphics intensive software and, to keep the computer from overheating, the fan noise increases with increased fan use.

To change the default switchable graphics settings in the Catalyst Control Center software, follow the steps below.

Click Start , type CCC in the Search field, and then select CCC from the search results list.

Hi Lenovo, I've recently been trying to upgrade my H30-50s graphics card. In fact, I've bought the wrong card twice from misguided advice. Ended up buying 2 cards that were 12cm instead of the needed 7cm or so. Believe me, that's been frustrating enough. Anyway, I've finally found a card that'll fit. It's MSI's low profile 750ti. Its got plenty of power. Looks great. Hopefully should fit. Here's the link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-Nvidia-750Ti-Graphics-Dvi-D/dp/B00ZA1IFGA/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8... Wattage on Amazon says 400W. Wattage on Nvidia website says 300W. As far as I'm aware, the H30-50 has a 240W PSU? Is this graphics card an absolute no-go? I have the i3-4160 model. 12gb ram, upgraded with 8gb recently. 1TB HDD.  If this is not a possibility, is it possible to upgrade the PSU considering how slimline these pcs are? I'd much rather find a new PSU than have to try and find another, decent specification, low profile graphics card. Any ideas? Thanks.

A:G50-70 - issue regarding amd r5 m230 graphics card 2gb on lenovo g50-70

hi Ashish1793,
 
If you're running on Windows 7 64bit, can you consider the following:
1. Navugate to the Control Panel (icon views) > Display Adapters and uninstall both the Intel and AMD Display driver then reboot.
2. Install the Intel Display Driver first then reboot.
3. Install the AMD Dislpay Driver (the files will be extracted drivers to the C:\Drivers\VGA folder - overwrite if prompted and reboot if necessary)
 
When finished,  you should now have both the Intel HD Graphics 4600 and AMD R5 M230 in the Device Manager > Display Adapters
 
If you get a Code 43 error on the AMD Display Device Manager, try to install the AMD R5 M230 driver directly from AMD website and observe.
 
If you have Windows 8.1, download the Intel and AMD Display driver from the G50-70 drivers page and install them respectively.

Hi gamer92, I dont realy recommend overclocking mobile gpu's since you dont have any way of getting a different cooling system. The risk of frying the gpu, means you have to replace the entire motherboard, not like in a desktop where it can just be the gpu that you need to replace if things go south.  Cheers,

Hello all, I have been having multiple issues trying to install the latest driver for the AMD card (AMD Radeon R9 M275) onto my Lenovo Y40-70 (running Windows 10). I am now trying to play Fallout 4, but can't even open the game without it crashing immediately. Solutions online say to update the graphics card. I don't know why, but the only drivers I am able to install come from Lenovo's site. None of the drivers provided by AMD work. The driver I have right now is version 15.200.1050.0 , and it's dated from 06/30/2015. The latest driver for the card I have (according to AMD) is 15.30.1025.1001, released 12/17/2015.  However, when I try to download the driver from this page (http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop?os=Windows+10+-+64), I get an error halfway through installation.  The error says that my operating system is not supported. Since I upgraded to Win10 from Win8.1, I tried downloading the driver for Win8, too, but the same error occurs. Why can't I update my graphics driver? Do I have to wait for Lenovo to release the update on their site? How long would that take? Are there any workarounds so I don't have to wait for Lenovo to catch up?  Thanks for the help!

A:Lenovo Y40-70 : How Do You Install AMD Graphics Card Updates?

AMD catches up again with errors lol, I stuggled with these updates for nearly 3 years and did not update since they would just give me more BSODs
 
Coming back to your issue,
1) Go to Control Panel > Programs & features
2) Remove AMD drivers and software, Restart.
3) Download the latest drivers for your GPU, keeping your OS in mind.
4) Install the drivers.
 
Let me know where you face an issue and what is the error.

There is no way to upgrade the graphics subsystem on your machine. The Intel HD 520 is integrated in the chipset package. Though some laptops have discrete graphics chips, almost none were socketed. They're soldered, instead.
 
Hope this helps to clarify.
Regards.

Hello,  I have the Lenovo y40 with the intel i7-4510 and wthe AMD Radeon R9 M275 graphics card. About 1 month ago, I was in the middle of a game when my computer just shut down and gave me a blue screen. Since then, I have been unable to run my computer with the graphics driver enabled. At first, I thought it may be a driver issue and have tried both the Lenovo drivers from their page (which seemed a bit outdated) as well as the AMD drivers from the website, neither of which have worked.  Furthermore, I did do a fresh install today in hopes that would fix it, however, it did not. I get the same thing, the moment it recognizes that the AMD card is working I get a BSOD.  Some of the error codes that I have gotten with the BSODs are as follow: THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER, BAD_POOL_HEADER, KERNAL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE, SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, BAD_POOL_CALLER, VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE, and KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (NTFS.sys).

Hey, I recently bought an Asus GTX 750 ti OC graphics card for use in my Lenovo Ideacentre 700-25ISH. Unfortunately, the graphics card has a six-pin power connector that I cannot connect to anything. The old card took all its power from the mother board. What do I do to get the GPU the needed six-pin power connector?

So I have a Lenovo h50 desktop and have upgraded the PSU to support a new graphics card but come to find out the graphics card (amd rx480 4 gb) is being blocked by the ram making it usable to plug in all the way, do you suggest a new motherboard all around? The subject should take you to the exact PC here is an image as well. I don't know what type of motherboard this is. All I know is it can use an amd a10 7800 processor. Here is a link to the actual PC as well.    https://flash.newegg.com/Product/N82E16883798515

Hi all, this is my first message here :-) I'm having an issue with Digital Combat Simulator (DCS, https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/), the game crashes every time I go into a mission. I've contacted game support and the crash report points to a GPU fault. I was able to run prior versions of the game tho (1.5.7 was working all right, then at the update to 1.5.8 and 2.5.0 I wasn't able to play anymore). My laptop meets the game requirements for sure, the fullest laptop data I found has been here: https://www.cnet.com/products/lenovo-z51-80k6002su-s-black-5th-generation-intel-core-i7-5500u-2-40gh...My SO is Windows 10 Home Edition - 64 bits, I have installed Directx 12 (FL 11.1).

AMD was updated to actual last driver (Windows updated just to 2015 driver) by downloading from AMD webpage. - Disabling Intel GPU in the device administrator to make AMD the main and only GPU in the laptop.

A:LENOVO H50 - 90BG003JUS Graphics card questions.

Hello Deslothen
 
Thank you for using the Lenovo forum 
 
Most Desktops are open to configuration there is three main things you will need to keep in mind.
 
1 is that is the part you would like to upgrade compatible with your unit, most of the time you can find the right information from the hardware manual.
 
2 upgrading parts can void warranty if something is damaged.
 
3 upgrading a gpu will need more power then what the psu already in your unit can produce, this means you will most likely need to upgrade your psu aswell.
 
 
Hope this help you and let us know how you get onDid someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo! If you find a post helpful and it answers your question, please mark it as an "Accepted Solution"!
 
This will help the rest of the Community with similar issues identify the verified solution and benefit from it.

Hi, I need to have access to OpenGL 2.0 for working with Kyvi framework in Python, but unfortunatelly I get an error that says that only OpenGL 1.1 is available on my laptop. I tried upgrading graphics card driver using Lenovo driver update tool as well as Intel driver update utility, but unfortunatelly nothing works. I own a Lenovo ThinkPad L512 model with Intel HD graphics card. Is there a way to get at least OpenGL 2.0 running?

Hi all, i have a big issue with my Lenovo G50-70.During the play of Diablo III, my notebook had a power loss and it powered down unexpectedly.Once booted up, the system cannot recognize anymore the graphic card AMD RADEON R5 M230 but only the Intel Integrated graphic card.I think the R5 M230 video card is completely gone (cannot resurrect it with only drivers installation or play with bios).... I would like to know if i can repair, substitute it or change it by sending the notebook to a Lenovo Center or by a Specialist Notebook Center Repair. Waiting on your reply.  Regards.
