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.)

Hello, I have a Lenovo ThinkCentre m58p with a GT 710 and I will probably upgrade it to GT 1030 in the future but is the GT 1030 compatible with the m58p?
 
Mod:  edited Subject line to add solution there
 













Solved!

Go to Solution.

A:Lenovo Thinkcentre M58 & M58p: yes, is compatible with GT 1030

I'm a huge fan of the GT 1030, but haven't seen any posts here on it and the M58/p.   You may be the first to try it, however the GT 1030 does work with the next gen model, M90/p (and newer), and I haven't seen a case where a GT 730 worked (on systems with PCIe ver. 2.0 -- GT 730 is known to work on M58) and the GT 1030 did not (meaning it has good backward compatibility, unlike AMD graphics cards.)  That doesn't guarantee that it will work, but there's a very high probability.  I hope that helps. 
 
Edit:  Earlier versions of the M58 and all M57 have PCIe ver 1.1.  I would not recommending using a PCIe 3.0 card (GT 1030) in a 1.1 slot (PCIe 2.0 cards like GT 730 do work in 1.1 slots.).  Check your Intel Chipset specs to see which version is supported. 
 
Edit 2:  I'm now thinking that all M58 had version 2.0 PCIe. M58 did have 2 generations of Intel processors, but I believe the Chipset stayed the same.

Like many others recently, I picked up a Lenovo ThinkCentre M58P (7484 A14) desktop computer via eBay.  It runs Windows 10.  From eBay, I also bought and installed a new PSU (www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-750W-750-Watt-BLUE-LED-Quiet-Large-Gaming-Fan-SATANEW 750W 750 Watt BLUE LED Quiet Large Gaming Fan SATA ATX PowNEW 750W 750 Watt BLUE LED Quiet Large Gaming Fan SATA ATX Power Supply PSU PCIeer Supply PSU PCIe-ATX-Power-Supply-PSU-PCIe-/400646802599?hash=item5d48690ca7:g:i5sAAOSwgmJX1wGf). Since then, the computer shuts down suddenly, and increasingly frequently.  As of today, it will not run at all. It starts to run, gets as far as booting the o/s, and then shuts down as though the power were cut off.  I have never heard of and I never considered a compatibility problem with the power supply, which is listed as being ATX.  Inside, I have this PSU powering the system board, one SATA CD/ROM drive, the SATA HDD, and an Nvidia Quadro 4000. Can an ATX power supply be incompatible, as mine apparently is? How so?

Hmmm...removing the Nvidia Quadro 4000 seems to have solved the problem.  Is it an issue with my card, or is the Nvidia Quadro 4000 incompatible with this motherboard?  I wouldn't have thought it would be incompatible.

This is a little confusing to explain, essentially when using "Restart" the computer will hang on the second Lenovo screen during boot up. It can shut down and turn on just fine, but it seems like if it tries to boot up too quickly from being turned off it hangs. If I use "Shut down" and let it rest for 20-30 seconds it'll boot up normally. It can also "progress" when encountering this problem, if it hangs and I turn it off but don't wait long enough it can go past the second Lenovo screen and hang on a black screen with a flashing "_" in the upper left hand corner, and if I repeat that it'll move onto a black screen with the blue Windows logo but no loading circle and hang there. I hope that makes enough sense to understand. Now, it's not that big of an issue, like I said, everything else works fine. But when my computer will try to auto-restart after an update or if I'm reinstalling Windows and it needs to reboot itself then it ends up frozen and sometimes that ends up messing up the update or reinstallion. I'm not exactly the most educated with computers, but I noticed an option for Hard-Disk Pre-Delay in my BIOS and was wondering if enabling that could fix the problem, if not then any help fixing it would be appreciated. And following the pinned post:Model Number: 9965A9U System Type: x64OS: Windows 10 ProBIOS: LENOVO 5CKT63AUS (Can provide other specs if needed)

Hello! I am a happy owner of Lenovo p50, but i got couple of questions. Firstly, Intel Xeon CPU E3-1505M v5 @ 2.80GHz should have a maximum clock speed of 3.7ghz, but thats not the case. The higher i see it goes is ~3.4ghz. I use Piriform Speccy. I tried some CPU stress tests etc, but the result is around 3.4ghz max clock. The Second question is why my bios menu is all greyed and i cannot change any setting. Yesterday i upgraded the BIOS to the latest N1EET60W (1.33 ) and today i tried to visit the BIOS to check some CPU related settings, but i found that almost every setting is locked and i cannot access it. It might be a security mechanism, but before i enter the menu i got promted to scan my fingerprint so i guess that should be it.

I checked T3600 and 3610 - the only difference is BIOS firmware, even BIOS chips are the same. T3600 has Intel ME firmware 7th version - that is why Xeon v2 are not recognized by the 3600 system, they need later 8th version of ME. Upgrade of ME formware is a difficult procedure  - You need to fit the size and other attributes of old ME region. The simpliest way would be to read both BIOS chips from 3610 motherboard and clean data region in ME but I don't have any T3610 systems. Another way is to analyze BIOS file for T3610 and drag out the firmware for T3600. If anybody has T3610 - please reply

Saw your other post asking about optical drive. I got a feeling that it's either a joke or scam. 1) There's no optical drive option for P50 (of course we are talking about built-in drive, not the external one).2) There's no E3-1550M v5 option for P50.  In fact, even the E3-1535M has limited availability.  e.g. E3-1535M is available in Japan but not in US. Good luck with the 'special built' P50.

Hi all, new to the forum. Would like to upgrade my M58p (7373) tower graphics card, from at present a Geforce GTX 650ti (2 GB ver) and replace it with a single slot nvidia Quadro K4000. mainly because the dual slot geforce card is covering a much needed 1x pci slot. Is anyone else using a Quadro 4000 or Quadro K4000 card successfully in there socket 775 motherboard?The quadro K4000 has the same GPU (K106) as the geforce GTX650ti that is in my Thinkcenter already. My concern, as I understand, that the drivers for the quadro are different than drivers for the geforce. Will those drivers work on this motherboard? I'm of the impression that quadro card drivers were designed for Xeon processor motherboards. I do NLE using Adobe CC, and utilize the cuda cores (768) for mercury playback engine using the GTX 650ti, providing a much improved response during editing. I have searched the forum and have found a list of certified compatible GTX cards, however no list of quadro cards. Presently the system is flawless. If it were'nt for my need for that pci slot under the dual slot graphics card, I wouldn't change a thing. I only do 1280 X 720 resolutiion editing so the K106 gpu is more than sufficient. I use Handbrake to convert and cleanup footage for the highest bitrate this motherboard can provide, which is about 28Mb/s (or 3.5 MB/s). I have had this computer for 5 years, upgraded cpu from Core2Duo E7300 to a Core2Quad 6600 (1066 FSB), 4GB of ram to 8GB of ram (max)....

No.  An i3 won't work.   Have you considered installing a SSD?    Other M58 owners have reported that it is a worthwhile upgrade.   An older, less expensive SSD model would have no problem supporting the 3 GB speed of your SATA ports.

Hello, All of a sudden, the CPU fan on my M58P was running on maximum speed.I tried to reset the CMOS (as some users suggested), but after that, the unit just reboots itself after a few seconds. No beep, no POST, it powers on quietly, then the CPU fan it's slowly increasing its speed, runs for about 2 seconds at max speed, then reboots. Forever.If it powers on having the CLR_CMOS jumper on pins 2-3, it makes 1 long beep, followed by 2 short beeps (the maintenance manual states RAM, MB or video error). Already tried different RAM sticks, placing in different slots, etc. Strange thing, the bootblock recovery process works, the unit boots from CD, makes some beeps, then powers off. But after placing the CLR_CMOS jumper to pins 1-2, it keeps restarting. Any way I could revive it?

Hello Updated the CPU on a M58p (9964, small form factor version) to a Q9650.  Updated the heatsink to the 43N9874 part (see FRU number on the fan housing) which looks to be the correct part from the description at:https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/pd002482  However, I can't keep the system cool (tried reseating a couple times with different thermal greases, no real change).  I saw another part on the list, 41R6454, which is listed as a "95W thermal kit".  Is that somehow different than the heatsink?  I can't find a picture of it anywhere to know if its maybe the 'missing' part to keeping this system cooled down.Thanks!

A:Difference between parts for a M58p CPU upgrade

Just a follow up... Still don't know what the other part number is, but I've been able to get the system to 'keep cool' by moving the thermal sensor from its original location next to the speaker, back to behind the CPU heatsink.  No idea how a thermal sensor out in front of all the heat producing parts is meant to signal the system to increase the fan speed, but placing it just behind the heat sink now has the fan rpms changing with increasing CPU load and keeping the system in the upper 30s at idle, and upper 50s under load.

I have the M58p and as you know, it has a microphone jack on the backside of the tower, as well as the front with a mic and headphone jack.  Is it possible to run AND RECORD audio from both mics if I use the two provided jacks? From what I have tried so far, I cannot get my audio software to take in both without some sort of issue.  I thought maybe I was missing something, hence the question. thank you in advance!

HI,  I'm trying to use this motherboard in a different case and the USB headers are non-standard 12 pin. I've read th article below which is for a different model and shifting the header connector 2 pins along doesn't work on this motherboard. I tried both headers, 2 diff motherboards and checked they are enabled in the BIOS. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkCentre-A-E-M-S-Series/ThinkCentre-A60-front-panels-power-audio-and...
