I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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.

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!

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!

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

A:Can m90p sff support gtx 1050ti gpu?

It's uncertain which AMD cards are backward compatible with your older system, but the Nvidia driver readme file on your system's support page on Lenovo.com has a list of supported adapters.   I checked, and it does support the Gt 730.   Since your system is a SFF.  I suggest that a low-profile GT 730 with DDR5 memory is currently the best all-around graphics card.  If you wish better performance for gaming, then a MSI low-profile Gtx 750 ti.

Please use the same method used for updating your M92p, and be aware that the CD ISO or USB Drive are the most reliable update methods because they bypass the Operating System that is installed.   So with those it won't matter that Win 10 is installed.

This is a less snarky variant of a previous topic of mine. I apologize for the overlap. I have an M90p machine type model 5536A86 currently running Windows 10. Certain updates of Windows 10 (including, but not limited to current build 1511) alter the partition table of the system drive during the update. For some users running BIOS/MBR partitioning, the process fails, rendering the system partition unreadable. I am one of those. I would like to try using GPT partitioning, but can't get my M90p to boot a GPT formatted USB drive, though the same port will boot an MBR drive with the same content. I have the latest firmware version 5JKT65A installed, called "Flash UEFI BIOS update" on this support page: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Desktops-and-all-in-ones/ThinkCentre-M-Series-desktops/Thin... My machine is out of warranty and I therefore cannot ask Lenovo any questions about it directly, nor have I found documentation directly addressing the question. I am at wit's end and will have to discard the machine if it cannot be made stable. GPT seems my best hope. Can anyone confirm or deny that this device is UEFI capable?

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?

I currently have the desktop not the tower. I would like a midtower so I am not limited with psu or gpu choices.

I tried to implement a Nvidia Geforce GT610 into my  M90p Desktop (ThinkCentre 3257, Win 7, 64-bit), but it is not recognized. All Lenovo specific drivers are updated. I can't install the Nvidia driver, because no graphic card is found. The card is not listed by the device manager. Updating hardware changes fail to discover the card. I searched the internet to find out, if the mainboard works with this card, but I couldn't find any viable information Any idea what to do?Thanks.

I have a m90p 5498F2M tower desktop I was wondering if my motherboard would be compatible with a GTX 1050 Ti ,
specifically ( INNO3D GTX 1050 Ti X2)
- in terms of BIOS and being able to supply enough power through the PCI express port.I think my mother board is a iq57m (not sure on the bios but I know it is from 2010 and that it is legacy)
 
I have looked at the support page and under the nvida drivers readme, the 1050 Ti was listed.
 
I know the card will fit, as i have already fitted a Asus Radeon HD7750, also i have put in a new 450 watt PSU already.Thanks

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.)

I am reviving an older M90p 3585 thinkcenter and am having an issue with HDMI audio from the integrated Intel graphics.After a fresh install of win7 and SP1,  HDMI video and audio are workign with my Tv. Netflix, Amazon, and youtube video work great in Firefox but VLC video is grainy. HDMI audio works well across the whole system.VLC video looks grainy (and aero doesn't work, etc), so I downloaded and installed the lenovo intel itegrated display driver (8.15.10.2202) from the product support/dowloads page and now the video looks incredible but there is no longer audio over HDMI. Audio is now only played from the built in ThinkCentre speaker.I have checked the audio output devices but the HDMI audio option says no device is connected to the HDMI and I can not select it.I have also tried the same driver version direct from intel's downloads page.I have also tried allowing windows update to install the updated MS driver from WUD, with the same behavior.I have also tried installing the realtek HD audio driver; installing this driver completely removes the HDMI audio option from the audio output devices window.In all cases, uninstalling the video driver returns audio over HDMI without specifying any settings, but of course the video looks grainy in VLC again. How do I install the Intel Integrated video driver to increase my video performancewhile maintaining my HDMI audio connection?FYI, the M90p in question is an i5 650, what is considered "pre-generation".I am usi...

First issue is price I have no Idea what stuff costs in the USA. Currency converter says ?207. UK My neighbor just bought a brand new system for less that that.

I'd want a longer warranty and a bigger hard drive.

CD speeds are not specified.

How many USB ports?

Make sure you get all the installation CD's with it.

Bottom line.
Pay the extra and get a new one.
