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.

I have a user with 3 displays. They are all VGA displays. Two with his M72E and the other another PC. We want to consolidate to one PC (Thinkcenter M72e). I dont believe the built in card can support 3 displays. Could anyone suggest an inexpensive video card that supports 3 displays for this tower. Its just for busines so no need for a high end card. Also would prefer passive if possible. M72e (core i5)https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/pd024590

Hello there, New owner of a TC M720T tower system. I would like to add another 3.5" hard drive to the system.  There seems to be a spot under the DVD drive that will fit a drive, but there doesn't seem to be a way to secure it.  Do I need a bracket or something?  I did find https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/accessories-and-monitors/thinkcentre-and-thinkstation/hard-drives/MECH-... but not sure if that is what I need? Also, there seems to be a way of adding a PS2 port.  What do I need for that? Thanks in advance

Newbie here. I have a 256 SSD drive and am thinking about adding a hard drive. I've looked at online videos and it seems easy when the second slot is right there in front of you. But I opened the 3420 today and am confused by what I see. The SSD is sitting on top. I assume the second slot is underneath it. Exactly how does one get to it - there's not enough room in front to simply slide the new hard drive in. The manual only deals with removing and installing the one hard drive. Do you remove the whole drive assembly?
Any hints or links to videos would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A:ThinkCentre M71e tower, 3165: can I change the motherboard?

Ive owned a few m71e towers In my experience they are matx and use standard power connectors so a matx board will likley fit however, i am not so sure that you could get the front panel i/o, lights or switches to work without rewireing. And i dont remember if the cpu heatsink screws to the case or if it has its own backplate. If it screws to the case it wont fit but Im fairly sure it has its own removable backplate so it should be fine. Ive always done it the otherway around by putting lenovo main boards in gaming pc cases.

Hi there, i'm about to receive my XPS 8910 Desktop in the mail today and I have a new 8TB to add to it. I was wondering if there was an extra SATA cable inside the housing or do I have to buy a separate SATA as well as a power cable to hook up to the extra drive to the motherboard? Would a splitter work?

That, and do I have to buy extra screws to mount the new drive in place? Thanks guys!

A list of the cables and parts I would need to add the new hard drive would be greatly appreciated.

All i'm assuming is:
An extra SATA cable
A SATA power cable
or a SATA splitter?
Screws to mount the hard drive.

Am I missing anything?

A:What do I need to add an extra hard drive to my Dell XPS 8910 tower?

The unused power supply leads will be tied up near the power supply. No, we would not provide extra SATA cables. The two #6-32 X 1/4" screws will be on the hard drive cage and bracket, page 12. Before you get the 8910, you should review the 8910 Service Manual linked above.

I want to upgrade my older M91p Thinkcentre Tower (big version) which still runs fine for my purposes with an additional hard drive, preferably a 2.5'' SSD to run the Operating System and the main programs. The M91p came with an optical drive and a primary hard disk drive preinstalled. However, the hard disk drive is attached in a special drive bay / tray to the tower, a sort of chassis which allows easy access. I'm referring to this "hard disk drive cage" and chassis thing with the blue brackets, that allows easy removal of the hard drive. According to the maintenance manual, there is a specified location to install a secondary hard disk drive (or SSD as in my case). But it assumes that there is another drive bay / tray / chassis present, which is not the case. (See Maintenance Manual p. 105) http://support.harlander.com/upload-artikelsupport/computer/ibm-lenovo/thinkcentre-m91p/win7-x64/doc... What is the approach to install an 2.5'' SSD in addition to the existing HDD, when another hard disk drive bay is not being present? Can I just use a generic 3.5'' to 2.5'' adapter to attach an SSD drive in one of the free spaces of the Tower?

Hi all, I am in need of installing a second disk drive for my ThinkCentre E53 10AS. I read the manual, which has instructions on replacing the disk drive - it does mention that in order to install a second disk drive, to follow these same instructions! Of course, it would not be an identical process. For example, there are 3 SATA plugs on the mother board, SATA1, SATA2 (both red), and SATA3 (yellow). SATA1 is plugged into the HDD.
 
There is a box connected to the power button, that has two buttons on the back. SATA power and SATA data. The SATA power is connected to the HDD and the motherboard via a 4-wire cable. The SATA data is connected to the HDD via a ribbon SATA cable. 
 
So, if I want to install a second HDD, do I use a SATA plug to connect it to the yellow SATA 3 plug? 
 
Does the fact that the plug is yellow mean anything?
 
And finally, I have looked everywhere, but cannot figure out what the max HDD capacity would be for a secondary drive? I bought a WD Red 3TB. Hopeful it works?
 
Any advice is greatly appreciated!

A:ThinkCentre (E53): need to install as secondary hard disk drive

According to the hardware maintenance manual for the E73, the two motherboard SATA connectors (which you say are red) are SATA3 which supports 6GB/s.  The third one (which you say is yellow) is SATA2 which supports 3GB/s.
 
Sinc you've bought a SATA3 drive, you should use the second red SATA3 connector to get maximum performance out of it.  Be sure you use a SATA3 data cable and not a SATA2 data cable, as that's part of the requirement to get SATA3 performance.
 
As far as drive capacity goes, there's no hardware limit pertaining to your E73.  However there IS a consideration depending on the fact that your drive is larger than 2TB.  In order for a new drive to be usable, it must be "partitioned" and "formatted with a file system".  And in order to use a drive larger than 2TB the partitioning technique must be GPT, and not MBR.
 
You can partition the new drive to have one or more partitions, but if you mistakenly use MBR as the partitioning technique only 2TB of the drive will be visible and usable for partitions.  And there will be a maximum of four "primary" partitions (or a maximum of three "primary" partitions and any number of "logical" partitions).  The extra 1TB of your new 3TB drive will be invisible and unusable.  And the largest MBR partition is also limited to 2TB.
 
In contrast, if you partition the drive using GPT (which is the modern partitioning method that is recommended), this method supports drives... Read more

There have been a few threads about the propreitary 14pin PSU connectors and that there's no aftermarket support for upgrades. But it's been a little while, and Lenovo (around the office, my staff are calling them "Le-No-No" now) hasn't change policy, or offered an upgrade.
 
We have just received several of these i7 PC's and they all have the useless 280w PSU's. Those are severely limiting in what video cards can be installed, as anything over 55w will knock the PSU over. That means, no decent cards. A Quadro 2000 is, at 51W, about as far as we can go.
 
My CDW rep has been working to find a solution for us, but without any success. So I'm bringing it to the community before I have to re-evaluate our desktop hardware choice.
 
Has anybody made either an adapter or a PSU that will work on the Lenovo 14-pin motherboards?
 
(Oh, and yes, I've read http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/A-M-and-Edge-Series-ThinkCentre/M92P-14pin-power-supply-connector/m-p/84... . No help there. Thought I'd post a clear question here in hopes that someone has started making adapters.)

I just bought it used and installed my old power supply (Enermax Noisetaker 420W), as the one that came with this PC sucks. I installed my old video card (x1900xtx), and it booted fine. But unfortunately it won't support Overwatch (crazy I know...).

, but I read some other threads related that some people's PCs wouldn't even boot with a R7 card.
 
My PSU does have an additional 6pin power supply.
 
Someone else said in another thread that the best video card could only be Nvidia 750 Ti. I hope this is not true.
 
Ultimately, I want to play Overwatch.

A:ThinkCentre Tower: best graphics card GPU possible? (max, video, VR, oculus, Passmark benchmark)

Can someone tell me if I need to get a low profile 750ti or will a normal double-fan one do?

Hi all,
 
My PC is :
 
4524e3u LENOVO M91P CORPORATE TOWER CI7-2600  3.4GHZ/16GB/320GB , full tower
 
I just bought it used and installed my old power supply (Enermax Noisetaker 420W), as the one that came with this PC sucks. I installed my old video card (x1900xtx), and it booted fine. But unfortunately it won't support Overwatch (crazy I know...).
 
I want to know the best possible video card I can purchase for this PC ($100-$210, I'm all about value), for gaming purposes.
I was thinking about

XFX Radeon R7 370 995MHZ 4GB Dual Dissipation GDDR5 HDMI 2XDVI PCI-EXPRESS 3.0 Video Card

, but I read some other threads related that some people's PCs wouldn't even boot with a R7 card.
 
My PSU does have an additional 6pin power supply.

Just did a online chat with Dell support and it left me confused. I currently have a 256GB SSD and want to add a second drive. I already made a mistake by ordering a 3.5" drive that I had to return, so I want to be sure of my next step. The spec sheet says you can have  (2) 2.5” SATA drives, but underneath that it say:


2.5” SATA 7200 RPM
Up to (2) 1TB 7200 RPM 


which implies each 7200 RPM drive is limited to 1TB capacity. Dell sort of confirmed that but said it was for "optimum performance" and that pretty much any drive that fit in the slot would work subject to driver and OS limitations. Hence my confusion.
I was planning to add a 2TB 5400 RPM drive. Also, I am assuming I need a 9.5mm height drive. Would that work? Not work? Work but have issues? Please clarify.
Thank you.

Hi everyone,
I installed Ubuntu on my computer a few months ago and created another partition for it on my 1TB hard drive.

I didn't really care for Ubuntu so I decided to delete the partition it was on.
That might have been a mistake.

Well, now there's 87.68GB of free space on my hard disk that I can't use and I don't know how to add it back to my c: partition.

There was another post about this a couple years ago, but I don't understand the instructions and am not actually sure if it worked. Can someone explain how to do this, please?

I'm not completely computer illiterate, but I'm not familiar with partitioning disks. It was just the one time with Ubuntu.

A:Hard drive partition: adding free space back to c: drive

The unallocated area is actually an empty extended partition. You need to delete that first.

A:ThinkCentre Tiny: add 2nd HDD, increase size of external HDD, 500GB Hard Drive Adapter (0A65638)

The Lenovo ThinkCentre Tiny 500GB Hard Drive Adapter Kit  (about 100  bucks) can only be used in the the ThinkCentre Tiny Storage Unit Kit which is an external drive enclosure that must be purchased separately (about 40 bucks) that will accept a CD/DVD drive, or a hard drive caddy ( the Lenovo ThinkCentre Tiny 500GB Hard Drive Adapter Kit).    I would imagine you could replace the 500G  2.5 inch SATA drive that comes with the Adapter kit/caddy for a larger drive, but if you goal is to just add an external HD, It would probably be easier (and cheaper) to just buy an external USB hard drive like this one. WD - My Passport 2TB External USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive  ($79.99 for 2TB up to 119.99 for 4TB)http://www.bestbuy.com/site/wd-my-passport-2tb-external-usb-3-0-portable-hard-drive-black/5605528.p?... Cheers,
