M58p with 16gb of RAM

Q: M58p with 16gb of RAM

I own an M58p 6209-D71 and want to upgrade to 16gb of RAM. The latest BIOS allows 4gb sticks and according to Intel, regarding the Q45 chipset, the mainboard allows up to 16gb of RAM on [email protected] (and up to 8gb on [email protected]), Will the 16 option be possible? Thanks in advance

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.)

A: M58p with 16gb of RAM

Check out both the Kingston and Crucial memory websites for your specific model for what is possible for memory upgrades.


Both companies have a 100% guarantee (and lifetime warranty) for system model specific memory to be compatible with that system and it's factory memory.

I really hate to get in on this thread, however it is the only one that seems to be going down the same path that I need.I have searched all over the place for information about adding 16GB of RAM to my M58P 6209 ThinkCentre. I purchased an 8GB (2x4GB) Ballistix kit.2 - 4GB DDR3 - 1600UDimm 1.5vBLS2KIT4G3D1609DS1S00649528755988When I add it to the motherboard, with my original RAM (2x4GB sticks), I got a "confirguration attempt" error. After searching for a day on that, I figured that my RAM was not compatible (for reasons unknown to me). When I compare it to the OEM RAM, it looks like it will work.The Crucial website only shows 2x2GB options for me, but I am not sure why when the motherboard maxes at 16GB.I have yet to see confirmation that anyone has 16GB of RAM (and what kind) installed, but many have confirmed it as possible. I guess I assumed DDR3-1600 RAM would work as the Crucial website suggests the same type BUT only in 2x4GB sticks.Am I missing something about the 16GB of RAM? I have BIOS 5CKT77AUS from 5/07/12.

10-31-2015 @ 4.25pm On the A740, I figured out that it will allow 16GB laptop RAM stick in its single memory slot. However, I did find out that a 16GB single-slot laptop memory stick will work on the A740and will get you to 16GB memory on only one memory slot (which the A740 has). The A730 was easier because it has two memory stick slots (so you could do 2 * 8gb = 16GB),but A740 only has one memory slot.  Therefore, you can not go with two of the cheaper 8gbmemory, because you have to spend more on the 16GB single-stick laptop.  So, hopethis helps other people.

I do everything well : thermal paste, not to much, just enough. I upgrade BIOS to the last version 5CJZ77USA. In idle, around 50C, in stress with CPUID it's 84C. I used CPUID HWMonitor. I try RealTemp too.  I don't understand why the fan didn't spinning to cooling the CPU. It still the same speed at 84C. I try another fan to check and the same think happened.  Can anyone already encountered similar problem ?

A:M58P - CPU Fan Not Spinning When Warming With Q9650

Ok I got it, after hours and hours I found that the problem is the thermal cable. It is place on front of the case and the fan pull the air in the front. So the cable termal never detect the CPU Temperature. I just unmount the thermal cable from the front case and put it behind the cooler so that cable can now get the CPU temperature and the fan spin correctly. My CPU has now just the good temperature. It's still keeping 57C at full load.

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.

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.

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.

Now, after try booting on USB, I have a white dash sign in the top left corner. I read that there is a problem with the Lenovo with an OEM OS but can?t find the solution myself. Thank you for reading my post and have a nice day

Hello, I had an old [but reliable] ThinkCentre M58p lying around and I recently thought of upgrading it [for a media center with a some gaming capabilties] from, some more, aging [but working] parts I have. So:1. I've replaced the Intel dual E8400 3Ghz with a quad Q9650 3Ghz [I have a 95W HSF] - Works perfectly2. Replaced the stock PSU with a 620Watts, SeaSonic - Works flawlessly3. Installed windows 10 and all the devices4. Finally, installed a EVGA GTX 770 2Gb into the PCI-E slot - This is the weird issue part Now, for the PCI-E card to get recognized during the boot, I had to switch the main output form IGD [Integrated Graphics Device] to PEG [PCI Express Graphics], and it works! The system boots up from the PCI-E slot, and with the drivers installed, everything works and looks great. Easy, or so it seems... As soon as I restart the PC there's no signal, from the PCI-E slot anymore, and in order to boot again from the PCI-E card, I have to:- pull the card out- boot the machine from the onboard VGA [no need to change the BIOS settings though]- shut down- plug the PCI-E card back in- turn it on Then it works again. Games run great, the PC is cool and quiet. Until I power it off... Each time, I have to repeat the process in order to get a signal from the PCI-E slot... Has anyone happened to come across this kind of issue and knows the cause for this? BTW, I've tried a different card [GTX 570] and the results were the same. Also, sta... Read more

I have a ThinkCentre m58P and have tried 2 cards in the machine to no avail. One just wasnt recognised the other gave bios bleeps. I want to turn this PC into a media streamer from as NAS server and need a HDMI output compatible Graphics card for this machine? Can anyone recommend whats on the whitelist or fully functions wih the M58p?

A:ThinkCentre M58p Graphics Card Whitelist

Can't recommend a card, but just wanted to make sure you knew that you don't have to have a graphics card with an HDMI port on it. The signaling for HDMI and DVI are identical, just different connectors. I have a cable that has a male DVI connector on one end and a male HDMI connector on the other. I connect from the DVI port of an ADD-2R card directly to my TV. There are also DVI/HDMI converters that accomplish this same task using the converter and a standard HDMI cable. Check the parts listing for your machine on the support site to see which graphics cards are supported for your model.

I have a Lenovo M58 with a lenovo mtq45nk mainboard. I have been happily using dual monitors through the VGA & Displayport (converted to DVI) for a long time now. Running win7 32x
 
Recently I added a PCIe card - Happauge Quad Tuner TV Tuner card,
 
Initially this did not work, and I needed to change bios settings from Automatic under video to IGD or PGE.  This got the TV Tuner card working.
 
Now my dual monitor setup no longer works.
I have tried changing settings in bios to:Automatic - does not detect TV tuner card.
IGD - detects TV tuner card but not second monitor
PGE - detects TV tuner card AND second monitor.
 
Windows detects the second monitor, and I can select is as mirror, dual display etc but nothing is shown - it's like it remains asleep.
 
Just to verify, I removed the PCIe card and tested the dual monitor setup again, and all worked perfectly again!
 
I have also tried setting the second display to primary display (display port) which does not work. I could not change this in bios as there is no option for primary display under video settings in bios - so i updated bios to latest scjy77usa.
 
I am quickly running out of ideas, and cant see why this should not be possible... does the PCIe (input only device) overrule the displayport? Is there a way to re-activate?
 
Mod:  edited the Subject line to clarify the question

I have the above PC in the mini tower varaiety.  Recently, I replaced the PSU with a 450W and installed one of my AMD gfx cards (AMD RX-470).  All I got was a series of beeps that don't match the beep codes in the manual, and the CPU fan stayed at full RPM until the system shut down.  Then went into continuous restarts.I then tried an older AMD HD-5750.  Same results.  Out of curiosity, I tried my ancient Nvidia 8800GT and 8800 GTS.  It worked w/o a hitch with both cards.  Then I tried my new Nvidia GTX 1060.  Again, no problem with it.  But it refuses to work with my AMD cards.  Any ideas how I can remedy this? If more info is needed, I'll be happy to provide it....

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.
