M52 8113-D5U ThinkCentre Processor CPU Upgrade

Q: M52 8113-D5U ThinkCentre Processor CPU Upgrade

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-60466 I have this M52 8113-D5U computer. It is equipped with a 3 GHz socket 775 Pentium4 and has some kind of cheesy intel chipset. I want to upgrade the processor to a dual core but I cannot find any information suggesting which model CPU to purchase. The specs on the Lenovo website list the Pentium D as compatible. However the listing only mentions that it can support the "Prescott" and the "Smithfield" but its not specific enough to mention which exact models and what exact stepping would be supported. I seem to recall reading that this model only supported D stepping somewhere but I can't remember if that is right. Strangely, the prescott IS NOT dual core and the Smithfield cores do not even have D stepping. Now the Smithfield cores which are apparently supported seem to have A and B stepping. But I don't know which one to purchase. It doesn't say in the support article which exact Pentium D processor is supported. There are four Smithfield Pentium D models and each model is available in either A or B stepping. So that is 8 different Pentium D Smithfield Processors and the website article does not mention which one of them is compatible. What dual core processor can I put in this machine? Here is a list of the low end Pentium Dual Cores:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_D_microprocessorshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_Dual-Core_microprocessors Can someone please tell exactly which model (s) I can purchase. I am planning on upgrading the computers power supply, RAM, and video card also, but without a real CPU in it, none of that investment will be worthwhile. A single core Pentium will bottleneck all of the newer games out there (I know this for a fact). Message Edited by ViciousLizard on 10-24-2008 04:03 PM

Preferred Solution: M52 8113-D5U ThinkCentre Processor CPU Upgrade

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.)

Dear All, We have several E93 desktops with i5 4440 processors (Machine Type Model: 10AR003KCR).Because of incresed need for computation power (more threads with higher speed), we would upgrade them with processors such as Xeon E3-1271 or i7-4770 (same LGA 1150 socket). Will it work, does BIOS allows something like that? Any suggestions? Thx!

Update:After put the XEON E3 1275L V3 to M83 with latest BIOS update, the M83 recognise the XEON CPU and display correctly on BIOS information.no need to use the 90W power adaptor since the original 65W adaptor is good enough to handle this 45W XEON chip, I do the stress test with seige-win for > 4hours on this M83 tiny with XEON , it did very well job without any sign of exhausted, the benchmark test show it is nearly double compare with the default core i5-4950TNo more hotter than the core i5.I bought the lenovo 90W  power adaptor with 29.99$ on ebay ( may be a fake one from china) but it seem to overheated than the 65W lenovo adaptor, so should not buy this 90W, ( Lenovo sells this at 69,99$ , so take this one if you can)

I'm considering, mostly just for the fun of it, upgrading the processor in my M93p Tiny desktop. According to CPU World, the socket type is a Socket 1150 / Socket LGA1150 / Socket H3. My M93p currently has a Intel Core i5-4570T (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i5/Intel-Core%20i5-4570T.html), dual-core 2.9 GHz. I would like to put a quad-core processor in it, but I am concerned with the potential for increased power consumption and thermal load.
 
I am looking at the following options for upgrading it:
 
i5-4690K (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i5/Intel-Core%20i5-4690K.html)
i5-4570S (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i5/Intel-Core%20i5-4570S.html)
i7-4785T (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i7/Intel-Core%20i7-4785T.html)
i7-4790K (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i7/Intel-Core%20i7-4790K.html)
 
As I said, my major concern is increased power consumption and thermal load. The Thermal Design Power (TDP) of my current processor is 35 watt. The TDP of the processors I am looking at upgrading to range from 35 watts (the lower powered i7-4785T, not my first choice) to 88 watts. If I go with a TDP of 65 watts or 88 watts, is my heat sink going to be able to handle the thermal load? And is the power supply going to be able to handle the added power consumption. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

It has to be one of the processors it could be ordered with, else the BIOS won't recognize it and fail to post (boot.) Search above for others who have upgraded their processor.
 
edit:   the processors known to work, are those it could be ordered with.  The majority of owners that upgraded outside those, were unsuccessful in getting them to run.

I just bought a new RAM for my computer and it doesn't work. It's a Kingston DIMM 1024MB DDR2 (1GB 2Rx8 -5300U-555-12). The computer does not seem to recognize this RAM althought it fits perfectly into the slot. Doing some research about this problem I found out that each motherboard supports only a certain range of memory types in certain combinations. However it went to the shop with the original RAM and showed it to the shop assistant and this is what i get for replacement. Can you please indicate where can I check what kind of RAM does the motherboard accept? Or in case this one is supported, how can I get it installed?

My Lenovo ThinkCentre runs just fine on Vista Business and I received Win 7 Ultimate NFR for both 32 and 64 bit versions. I have no real need to upgrade the OS, but I'm a tech junky and having the latest is one of my passions. Seriously, if I go more than a week without wiping and reloading some version of an OS on my BlackBerry, I start going into withdrawal. Anyhow, I'd like to put Win7 on my system, but just not sure if it's worth any potential headaches. I could upgrade to the 32 bit relatively easily I assume, but I'm thinking of doing a clean install of the 64bit. I would probably leave the recovery partition intact and install Win7 over the running Vista OS partition.

Is there any great advantage to loading 64bit from scratch? I have 4GB installed, and of course can only see 3GB currently. All programs and hardware are compatible per Windows Upgrade Advisor. I haven't done a clean install on my pc in a few years, and I remember it being a huge pain to re-install all programs and settings. Should I just go with the 32bit version?

Thanks!

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,

Hello, is it possible to install DD3 PC3-12800 into Thinkcentre Edge71 that usually accepts PC3-10600. Is there a way to check this somewhere in the system or BIOS. At the moment PC3-12800 is cheaper then PC3-10600 and I would like increase RAM from 8GB to 16GB. Thank you very much.

I have seen Crucial Memory use higher speed chips for their Lenovo 'System Specific' memory (the speed will drop to the lowest common denominator), but I believe the timings must be identical to the factory memory to work.

The m700 SFF (I7 and 16gb of ram) comes with 80 PLUS 85% 210 W PSU power supply.  I currently need a graphics card that can support 4 monitors preferably via VGA.  I found a few graphics cards and even installed one (Radeon 5570 SFF) already and it didn't work.  The minimum was 250w so that should be the problem.   In any case, if I need to upgrade my PSU, how do I find one?   Also, are there any GPUs that will fufill my needs without needing to upgrade the PSU?   In other words, what are the compatible GPUs for my computer that can work with the current PSU or an upgraded PSU that can support 4 monitors?   For example, if I wanted the nvidia Quadro NVS 420, would that be compatible with the my computer and its current PSU?

Hello! I've got a M93p Desktop (ThinkCentre) with a LGA1150 socket and no CPU. Since for me, it made sense that any LGA1150 CPU could work, I purchased a Intel I3-4170, installed it, but there is no video, no beep, nothing, just the fans and hdd works. For my surprise, according to the specs, only two (?) cpus are compatible: one I5 and the other an I7. It is of no use to mention the exact cpu models. I have three questions, I hope someone that was in my situation could help: 1. What is the technical reason why a cpu with the same socket type won't work?2. Besides removing battery, RAM and disk drives, is there anything else I could try?3. Can i just buy ANY motherboard compatible with the I3-4170 and put it in the M93p? Hoping that the RAM modules and PSU are 100% compatible with any component. Thanks for your help!!!!

Hi, everybody.

I'm trying to figure out a number of things about 'switching' everything important from my current (old model) computer over to the Lenova ThinkCentre A50 8148-22U (which I received as a gift).

My main concerns are:

(1) How can I get all (emphasis on 'all' because I understand MS and others embed data into very low (unaccessible regions of hard disks!)? I'm concerned about making sure the System Registry gets copied completely.

Is there a software utility or a 'cable option' that performs a true "bit" (mirror) copy from one HD to another HD? My current HD has all my extremely-difficult-to-install/update info on it already. That's why I would prefer using its data. I want to be able to boot my current drive's OS instead of the OS already installed on the 8148.

I'm not certain at this point of writing what type/model my current HD drive is. (I didn't look before writing this post. Heh heh. Sorry!).

I read on Lenova's website forum where someone said to another user: "Since your computer has ultra-ATA connectors, make sure that internal drives (including hard drives) you purchase are ultra-ATA compatible. Most drives on the market are serial-ATA drives".

(2) If my drive is not "ultra-ATA compatible," what do you recommend?

(3) I need to use my current AGP video card by installing it in the AGP slot on the 8148-22U. The reason is, that my HDMI monitor plugs in... Read more

 I'm trying to watch some HD videos at the very least! Also gaming can always be a plus. I notice the card riser PCIe x1 produces problems because there's not enough room inside the small form factor case. Also i'm hearing the PSU (225w max) is also a factor - which a GPU is very limited. I just want to know if anyone had success with one of these simliar models i'm cureently writing about?

Just wondering if, and how, I can troubleshoot an oddity I have. We run a number of this model Lenovo and decided they would be better with 8Gb of RAM, up from the original 4Gb. All went smoothly until one PC emitted a musical alert on booting after the upgrade, which stopped when I removed the new RAM. I checked I had the new RAM in the correct slot, blue just like the original stick. I tried the suspect stick in the next box and it is fine. Where do I start looking to find out what is going on? Regards, Granville.

A:Thinkcentre m92p memory upgrade failed

I would repace the original 4GB with upgrade memory, test to see if it boots, and then put original memory into upgrade slot and test, if it fails, that slot is probably bad.   You could use it in the other bank, won't be as fast, but you'll have 8GB.
 
After any memory upgrade or change, I suggest running a couple of passes of MemTest86, the free version, to ensure all is well.

Hello. I'm using this computer in my office. It is an HP Touchsmart IQ526. It is an all-in-one computer. I originally came with windows vista. I've upgraded the HDD to an SSD, and it's currently running WIndows 10. I am trying to run some office hardware devices that use bluetooth usb adapter. The software for this particular wireless hardware device I am using was writeen for 64 bit computer systems.  My question is if I can upgrade this particular computer to a 64 bit processor. The hardware device wasn't working well with it, and I spent too much money on it to let my computer be the limiting factor.  Thank you for any help. I'll attach an image of everything on this PC, and a link to information on the original model. Thank you for any help. Shaun http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01619739

Hello, as the title says.. Can I expect this CPU to work? Do I need something else than BIOS update -I have the latest 2EKT46A, dated 6/2/2009  (http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds000714) If not what are my other CPU options? Any help is appreciated. Thanks

A:ThinkCentre M52 (8215 D1G) CPU Upgrade - will a Pentium D 830 SL8CN (3 GHz) work?

Well, it didn't worked The machine is M52 8215 D1G, original CPU is Pentium-4 640 3.00 GHz Prescott, stepping N0, SL7Z9The new CPU that didn't worked is Pentium D 830 3.00 GHz Smithfield, stepping B0, SL8CN In the specs here: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/pd006096Pentium D 830 is listed as a supported CPU I am using the latest BIOS from here: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/pd006096The changelog  mentions added support to stepping D0 CPUs - does that means that all up to D0 aresupported, or only D0? Also here: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/pd000810 both Smithfield and Presler Pentium D arelisted as supported.. Somewhere I've found that only 8215 CTO types are with Pentium D. Mine is 8215 D1G..Is that a hardware difference or just different peripheral equipment? And last - in the BIOS update I noticed an option to change the machine type and serial number - will thatenables the Pentium D to work if I change the machine type from D1G to CTO or I will brick it? Many questions, some answered myself.. but If anyone have experience and knowledge - please share.. Thanks

While contemporaneous ATI/AMD graphics cards will work, newer generation AMD cards are generally not backward compatible with older ThinkCentres.   I suggest you search for which newer Nvidia will work with your system. 
 
The readme file for the Nvidia driver for your system has a list of supported cards, but since it is from 2009, it is dated.
