Q: Lenovo M91p Desktop not booting with new graphics ...

Hi all I have recently bought a Lenovo M91p thinkcenter Desktop as an upgrade to my old i3 PC. Old Spec is as follows:Coolermaster Thunder 600W power supplyIntel DH55HC motherboardi3 CPURadeon HIS HD 7950 Graphics card8GB RAM500GB HDDI have transferred my old 500GB HD and Power supply to the new Lenovo desktop and everything booted fine.Then I installed 2x 2GB extra into the Lenovo M91p (Making it 8GB), and upgraded the 500GB HDD to a 1TB. So my new spec is as follows:Coolermaster Thunder 600W power supplyLenovo Q67 motherboardi7 2600 3.4 Ghz CPU8GB RAM1TB and 500GB HDDEverything Booted fine. Then I tried to install my old Graphics card (The Radeon HIS HD 7950 Graphics card). All i got was a blank screen, no beeps, no BIOS... Nothing.At first, i thought my power supply wasn't enough... So i tested a 750W power supply in the pc. Still nothing.Then I thought the motherboards BIOS was outdated... Updated it... Still nothing. I even tried updating the firmware of the graphics card. Nothing.The graphics card definitely works because I tested it in my old machine and it worked 100%.However, I took my graphics card to my supplier, and he tested it on another one of his PCs... Didn't work there either.My PC's BIOS doesn't have support for secure boot, in case anyone wants to know.I have run out of ideas now... Any one able to help?

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.)

There's a white list of graphics cards the BIOS will recognize. The HD 7950 is a 180w card, well in excess of what the factory power supply can provide for (and the case/fans sufficient cooling for), and is not one that Lenovo would provide BIOS support for.

Use the search engine above to see what cards other owners have successfully used in their M91p.

I just got a recent AMD Polaris card (RX 550) for Lenovo ThinkCentre M91p, and it simply doesn't boot with it. It doesn't even get to the starting splash screen with Lenovo logo. The monitor remains blank. I updated the BIOS to the last release I could find but it still didn't help. Can anything be done with it? It works with Nvidia cards, but I'm running Linux and want to use open drivers, so AMD is a much better option. I replaced the power supply by the way with better one.

Hi there. Just received this kind of computer for the very first time. This is Lenovo ThinkCentre M91P made in late 2011. At the moment it has: i5-2500S 2.5 4 cores CPU12GB DDR3 RAM (I use 1600 Mhz instead of 1333 Mhz. Works fine)256 SSD SanDisk180W external power supplyNO VIDEO CARDComputer size: 270mm x 240mm x 80mm I have no idea what kind of video card fits. I browsed the internet and found out that it supposed to be a card called LOW PROFILE card. But these are so different from each other. I have a doubt if this old motherboard can still support any new video card at all. Below I leave a link to 1a.lt store, so maybe someone of you could point me some examples.https://www.1a.lt/kompiuteriu_komponentai_tinklo_produktai/komponentai/vaizdo_plokstes/max/price-100 And probably I will need some more powerful power supply. I would like to be able to play average games like GTA5. *** Also I'm wondering if this card could fit:https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N750OC-2GL#ov

Hi. I just purchased a Lenovo Thinkcentre M91p (machine type 0266) which has an external 150w power supply. I purchased it to be used as a HTPC and i want to put a gpu and more ram in it. The problem is the power supply, all the ones i see people talk about have an internal 240w power supply. On the back of the pc is a DC in jack thats directly into the motherboard itself.
 
I ran some calculations on power usage and the site i used said the recommended power supply size for the standard unit is 150w with a peak load of 123w. Adding the gpu alone pushes the peak load to 140w (nvidia gt730) with a recommended supply of 180w.
 
My question basically is how can i upgrade an external power supply when all i can find is standard 150w external replacements or internal ones that wont be of any use

A:M91p USFF: uprate external power supply for graphics upgrade (GPU)

Update: im guessing i could just use any power adapter for other pc's or laptops with 180w or more, it just needs to have the correct ending which is a 6.0x3.0mm connector. I could even possibly use an adapter to make the correct ending. i dont see why this wouldnt work as the power supply is all external

When playing music, every 10-15 seconds I get a crackle in the audio while connected to speakers or wearing headphone.  Sometimes it's every minute or two, but there's never a solid 10 minutes without a crackle.  It's very irritating to be in a conference call or trying to enjoy some music when the system keeps interrupting. I have tried:- installing all Windows Updates- re-installing the audio driver from Lenovo's support website- using the front audio plug instead of the back jack- re-installing Windows- installing a new hard drive- swapping graphics cards Note that I am running Windows 10 Anniversary Edition but this problem happened when Windows 8 was installed as well.  It's not a new issue, it's just that I can't stand it anymore.  Has been happening for years.

Hello,I can't seem to find specific information about this pc related to this topic. I have a client that wants to have a hdmi port and dual monitor installed. I looked everywhere in the bios settings, I tried using a usb-to-vga adapter & and vga, dvi-d cable & vga (this mirrors both monitors, but cannot extend the display). When I changed the settings on the bios to use the built in graphics, it gives me the option to enable multiple monitors but cannot use my pcie graphic card. If i select to use the pcie graphic card, i cannot use the built in graphic ports or the usb-to-vga adapter (it does not see the other monitor) and also if I use the dvi adpater and the vga it mirrors the display. I'm guessing that the bios does not support dual graphic cards but thought of asking here. The reason the client wants this is to be able to connect a projector using hdmi and to have dual monitors. Any information will be greatly appreaciate it. Thank you.

So, I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Z61T 9660CTO which I bought in 2007. It has served me well. Yesterday, it was working perfectly, albeit with some exxtra high heating at the bottom, close to 60-70 degrees Celcius. Then , I wanted to put in a new SSD into it. So, I took out the old HDD and then connected it, and the other SSD via USB casing to another computer running a disk cloning software. Tried it did not work. Now, I put back the old HDD into the Thinkpad, it does not start up again at all. Even the first screen which says "Thinkpad" press Blue button for recovery" does not come up now. Hard drive is not it, since the screen does not switch on at ALL. If it was HDD failure, it would say something like HDD not detected. But in this case, it does not even show the initial Thinkpad screen. So, this may be a loose connection somewhere (even though I did not remove the casing at all while removing the HDD) Both times, I removed and reattached the HDD, with the power cable removed from the Thinkpad, but, the battery was still inside the chassis. Short circuit? Bad! Someone help.

Hello,I recently bought (used) a Lenovo H520 that will not boot. When I press the power button, the fans spin up and the power button stays solid on. The disk read/write light quickly flashes about every three seconds. Absolutely nothing happens on screen so I cannot access the BIOS. I got it cheap due to a bad hard drive and used an old Windows 7 drive instead. I upgraded it to Windows 10 (x64, wiping the 32-bit 7) and it worked fine. I do not know what changed between then and now but now it will not boot. I have already attempted booting without the hard drive to the same effect.Thank you.

Hidy ho all,

I have a Lenovo G505s I bought in august. Up to this point, its been a great machine. This morning (11/20/2014) I installed some updates from windows update. around 4:30 PM today, I rebooted the machine, because I had an hour break in between classes. During that reboot it tried to install those updates, and it said it failed. After the failure it said it was reverting back to the prior state before the updates were installed.

It then rebooted again. It got to the Lenovo splash screen, and some little white text on the bottom of the screen has said for the past half hour "Updating your system (5%)" with the windows 8 little circle thing spinning around just above it.

I did try restarting it by holding down the power button, but it came right back to this screen.

Google has turned up nothing yet. Has anyone else had this issue? If so, have they (you) been able to fix it?
 

A:Lenovo G505s not booting

I think the quickest way around this issue is to let the OS try to install the updates it might take a while to do so(which is a pain) but I would wait because you don't want to mess up your system you might loose more than the time you will wait

Hi guys,I fresh reinstalled windows yesterday and allowed it to collect updates overnight, including drivers.This morning I wake up and powering on the machine, I am greeted with a recovery screen. Selecting exit and continue brings me back to the recovery screen.I tried refreshing it from that screen, though it asks for recovery media, of which there appears to be none, even when I have a properly configured and bootable recovery media USB key inserted.As a recovery bootable device I use a lexar 8 gb USB drive. The machine has no optical drive.The only thing I can gather is that USB and or legacy boot mode are not enabeled.As I am totally blind, I have very little knowledge of the bios of this particular device, and any decent explanations are scarce.I know how to get to them (press f2 for bios and f12 for boot menu I believe) though anything else is beyond me.Could somebody tell me what to press at the keyboard to enable USB mode, and or legacy mode, if that particular option is needed?And by the way, for those curious about how I gathered information about the recovery screens, I use an app called seeing AI, which takes screenshots of anything you tell it to, and tries to tel you what it sees.Even with good lighting, the seeing AI app isn't of much use to help navigating the bios menu. Most problematic, I can't tell exactly what order the app sees the options, as compared to what order they are actually in.I would be most greatful if anyone could help, as this is the only ...

My Lenovo B590 was working fine yesterday, today suddenly I can't make it boot up. I have recorded a video that demonstrates the behaviour of the Laptop on Power On:https://youtu.be/T9IcxsIgRcE It remains in an endless loop of powering up for a sec, making some click-sound and turning off immediately. Longpress power button ends the loop. AC cable is connected, battery is inserted. Things I tried that didn't solve the issue:Power On only with AC cable (normally and with 20 sec long Power press)Power On only with battery (normally and with 20 sec long Power press)Removing both RAM and trying it with one each in each of both RAM slotsProbably an issue with the motherboard? Anything else I could try?

A:Lenovo B590 not Booting at all

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing.  I would try removing the optical drive and then try powering the laptop up.  If that doesn't work then remove the hard drive and power up.  Since the click sounds mechanical in nature, that would lead me to suspect either one of those devices.  If the laptop powers up with a drive removed then suspect that drive as being faulty.
 
Your model's User Guide will explain how to remove those drives.  Here is a link to that manual for your reference.....

I am having issues with booting my laptop. The other day I tried turned on my laptop and it came up with a message which disappeared before I could check what it said. It then put me in a loop with restarting my laptop with options and now it isn't booting at all. Each time I try and power on the machine the screen goes black and the lights on the front to show power and charge light up. Then after about 20 or so seconds, it shuts down. I also tried pressing the OneKey Recovery button on the left side of the device however this did the same as the power button. I stripped down the laptop to check the CMOS battery to see if that was the issue but the battery was healthy and showing 3.19 volts. What else could this issue be?  Thanks, James W.

The short story is I have a malware problem that I am trouble shooting and also have some type of graphics driver issue. I don't know if the two are related. I went to the Uninstall List forum on this site and attempted to remove the ATI-Uninstall Software Utility. While doing that the computer froze. When I attempted to reboot it, I just get a black screen, it is in the "power save mode" and I get no graphics. I suspect that I damaged the graphics driver so I was wondering if there is a way to boot the computer up without the graphics driver. I guess I would then attempt to reinstall the driver. I was wondering if I could remover the ATI graphics card and boot it up. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Booting up a computer with no graphics driver

Without the ATI driver (assuming that you have an ATI chip/card), the system defaults to the same video driver used in safe mode.

So...I suspect this is more than a graphics driver issue.

FWIW: IMO, most persons who "troubleshoot/solve" their own malware problems...are not as successful at doing such as they presume.

If you have an actual graphics card...I suggest removing it, then reinstalling/reseating it...ensuring that there is no possible debris in the slot when reinstalling.

If you have an onboard chip...not much you can do.

System manufacturer and model?

I'm trying to boot Ubuntu from a CD but it dies part way through claiming a graphics issue. I'm running an 8800gts 320mb. Any idea what its issue is? Knoppix won't run at all.
 

A:Linux not booting due to graphics issues

I'm no Ubuntu expert, but try booting from your CD into rescue mode, and seeing if you can run the program that configures Xwidows again, to see if you can select a new video card driver.

I don't have exact instructions for that distro, I am afraid.

I have recently built a system using a new power supply and case, and everything else old. Here is my pcpartpicker link.

GTX 760, 500W 50+ bronze power supply
The computer works perfectly running windows 10 without the graphics card plugged in, I can even put it on the motherboard (not plug in power cables) and it's fans will run, which makes me think it works. However, when I have the card plugged in my system will not turn on. The fans spin and light up for less than a second. I think my power supply is good enough. My question is is my PSU possibly not powerful enough or is the graphics card broke?
