Lenovo Thinkcentre M90P Ram Upgrade

Q: Lenovo Thinkcentre M90P Ram Upgrade

Hello i have Lenovo Thinkcentre M90P whith Intel Pentium G6950 250GB HD and 2GB of 1066mhz DDR3 RAM i think its Hynix? Recently i bought a 4GB Crucial DDR3 stick 1600mhz . http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/ct51264ba160b I took out the old RAM and put in this new one but the PC doesnt get into windows anymore and just keep rebooting if I install the old RAM back everything works perfect. I tought that MHZ shouldnt be a problem and that the new ram will be downgraded to 1333mhz (max supported i think). Maybe any BIOS update would work or what should i do? Thanks for help!

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 everyone - I am having one heck of a time with these ThinkCentre M90p units when trying to upgrade to the latest (Creators) build of Windows 10.  They keep losing the MBR and thus show the primary partition as "RAW" instead of NTFS as it should be.  This happens about half way through the upgrade when the system reboots.  It comes up to a BSOD 0XC000000F immediately upon attempting boot - this is, of course, because the primary partition is unreadable. Now, I have seen at least 8 of these systems do the exact same thing.  All hardware passes diagnostics with flying colors, so I know it's not a failing hardware issue.  I have done some Googling and have found where other people are having a similar issue, but none of them mention this particular model of Lenovo ThinkCentre. To test further, I did a FRESH install using an Anniversary build (1511) and then ran the latest upgrade to Creators (1607) from inside the freshly installed 1511 build.  The same problem occurs every single time.  Any ideas?  I know some of the posts I've found online state that running Windows in UEFI mode with GPT takes care of the problem.  The issue is that these units do not support UEFI (at least from what I can tell...)  Thanks in advance for any assistance that you can provide!

I have a ThinkCentre M90p on Windows10 Home that no longer sees cd's or dvd's in the drive. I've been searching for fixes for a couple days now, and none of those worked. The Device Mgr sees the drive, drivers are up to date. I've uninstalled the drive (through Device Mgr) and rebooted, it reinstalled but still does not detect a DVD in the tray. I've tried a Driver collection program (1-click find and install) but it didn't find any problems with that particular driver, I've tried a Registry fixing program but it didn't find any problems to fix there. I know it worked when I bought it because I looked at a couple of old picture cds then(July/17), but haven't needed it again until yesterday. I did find a post about cleaning the lens, but I have no clue about taking the drive apart to get in there to do that so I thought I'd ask here if there were any other ideas first.

A:ThinkCentre: Stuck at Lenovo splash screen after lenovo solution bios upgrade

I would try resetting the BIOS using the jumper, or by taking out the CMOS battery, wait a minute or two, and then replace it and try booting up. See page 73 of the Hardware Maintenance Manaul linked below for location of the Clear CMOS/Recovery jumper (# 20) https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/thinkcentre_pdf/m83m93p_hmm.pdf Clearing the CMOS (BIOS)1. Remove all media from the drives and turn off all attached devices and the computer. Then, disconnect all power cords from electrical outlets and disconnect all cables that are connected to the computer. 2. Remove the computer cover. 3. Locate the Clear CMOS /Recovery jumper on the system board. 4. Move the jumper from the standard position (pin 1 and pin 2) to the maintenance position (pin 2 and pin 3). 5. Reinstall the computer cover and connect the power cord. 6. Turn on the computer and leave it on for approximately 10 seconds. Then, turn off the computer by holding the power switch for approximately five seconds. 7. Repeat step 1 through step 2. 8. Move the Clear CMOS /Recovery jumper back to the standard position (pin 1 and pin 2). 9. Reinstall the computer cover and connect the power cord. Good Luck,

Dear community, I found a M90p USFF system board in the garbage, fully functional when tested. But without the case or anything else. Repairing, especially old hardware, is something I really value: make something work without having to buy new stuff. I was planning to build my own home-theater mini-pc, and already have standard USB-Audio Front I/O panels, and power buttons, and almost all the rest.Lucky me, so I only need the heatsink, power adapter, and the pinout for USB, Audio and power (the system board was set to restore power automatically, so I could test. But eventually, I want to switch it on with a power button like a normal computer). - I found https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkCentre-A-E-M-S-Series/ThinkCentre-front-panel-connector-power-audi...but the number of pins is not correct.- Pictures I found of the Front I/O 45J9567 are not good enough to really see anything. All wires are within a plastic tube, so no luck either. Can somebody help me out? Are there schematics of the system board? Nowhere I found information of the pins. AC97/HD audio headers look differently, and USB headers normally have a 5+4 pinout (with the M90p USFF it's only 4+4). The hardware manuals I found, only describe the set of headers, but not the exact pinout. kind regards,Tim

Tower or Small form factor... actually posting your Machine Type Model (MTM) would help. If you have the tower, just about any ATX PSU like this one would work since I believe your motherboard as the standard 24 pin connector, but with that card you might want to wait to see if it even needs a 300w PSU, because it may work just fine with you current PSU unless you have a bunch of HDDs installed etc.. If you want a Lenovo PSU that shipped with the M81, you can get a 280 watt like this one  https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Lenovo-41A9684-Desktop-PS-5281-7VR/dp/B00R3NPNN6, which should be more than capable of powering your GPU. Best of luck,

In that case, would the system be bootable? - a video card (256 MB would be great!), but connected to the PCI 2.0 slot (legacy)! Because of the small cabinet, it would need to be a low profile and relatively small board. I saw that there are some boards in the old PCI standard on eBay. - an Intel i7-880 processor, which would need the most efficient heatsink (to be purchased - part number 43N9815) found on the top-of-the-line M90p with i7 OEM processor; - RAM (in this case, would fit more than 8GB?) This upgrade would be the ideal situation for me.  Alternatives: - Buy a "normal" SSD, SATA 3, and install it on the SATA 2 port of the PC, losing performance or, at best, install an SSD on a SATA 3 card connected to the PCI-Express slot.

So recently I've gotten my hands on a used Thinkcentre M90p 5536 (i3-540, 4gb ram, 500gb HDD, ect...), but I wanted to upgrade the graphics, so I managed to get a gtx 745 (OEM) from a friend, as that was the most modern card I could reasonably get (That would fit, and not consume too much power) . This is where my troubles started. The M90p in question works perfectly on it's integrated gpu, and the GTX 745 works flawlessly in other computers (I tested them), but when I put the GPU into the m90, all I get is the motherboard not POST-ing, and then after waiting a little beeping 5 times. I've updated the BIOS, reset it, reinstalled windows 10, replaced the RAM, to no avail. The computer just wouldn't turn on. When I removed the GPU, however, everything went back to normal. Is it possible that the GTX 745 is simply incompatible with the M90P, and if yes, can I do something with the Bios(es) to solve this problem?

The graphics card white list is not so explicit that certain makes of card will work and others will not.  
 
So, if the card model is on the supported card list (or from a search here is known to work), you have enough power for it, and it will fit in the available slot length, then 99.9% chance it will work (all baring that the x16 slot is defective, which has happened here before, once or twice.)

Now, in the wake of the two wasted days recovering from the AVG mess up, POST hangs at the "System is starting" message for what seems like an eternity and the boot only starts after a few candles have been lit and prayers offered. After that, all is well and the system runs even better than ever (a major plus after removing AVG).
 
Okay... research seems to indicate that this is a BIOS setup problem, but the research doesn't tell me what to do about it. I'm 99% convinced the problem doesn't lie with the hardware - and there is a connection with the trashed optical drive.
 
Any ideas, guys? In my totally untutored way I'm thinking that the startup is somehow confused by the dead drive.

This could be due to some leftovers of AVG. How does the computer boot when tapping F8 and selecting Safe Mode. If it boots normally in Safe Mode download AutoRuns and look for anything AVG left behind in regards to services or drivers. Only uncheck the box next to any AVG item. Try booting after disabling every AVG item.

If that does not solve the problem then do a clean boot. If clean boot lets the computer boot normally start enabling startup items and services a few at a time until the problem arises.
