Q: Lenovo Thinkcentre m92p sff (3227) Makes Beep sound when powered on since I updated the Bios....

Lenovo Thinkcentre m92p sff (3227) makes Beep sound when powered on since I updated the bios to the version: 9sjw99usa.exe.Also since I replaced the stock lenovo Fans with Noctua fans it makes a second beep (so 2 beep sounds total and there is a fan error in the bios event log), when I connect back the stock fans it makes only 1 beep again. I dont know if the noctua fans would cause the same behaviour on the older bios version since I replaced the fans after the bios update , but I know that with the old bios version there wasnt any beep on startup with the stock fans.I read somewhere that lenovos can give errors in the bios event log with other fans when their rpms are slower then the original fans rpm were, that doesnt explain the single beep on start up with the stock fans though.I wasnt able to find any older bioses for my model to experiment with them on the lenovo support page only the newest bios is offered for download and I wasnt able to find a way to turn of the self test / beep post on start in the bios. I remember that some oem pc systems had key combination for hidden bios settings, does someone know of such a combination to enable hidden settings for my device, or any other way to turn of the annoying beep sounds?I also replaced the stock PSU with a Be!Quiet! TFX Power 2 300W Gold + 24 to 14 adapter right after I updated the bios. Bould the first beep on start be because of the new PSU? But how would the System know its not the stock PSU? Is it possible that lenovo maybe makes a bios where its possible to turn off beep codes?Does anyone have any ideas for a solution of the problem? I need the System be very quiet aand the beeps on start are very annoying tha speaker is soldered to the mainboard so I cant even take it of.The temps are more then fine by the way since I am useing a Noctua NH-L9i cooler with the 92 x14 fan replaced to a noctua 92 x25 fan and the i7 3770 I put inside the system is delided .

Problem solved toay,You need to open your machine. Find the cmos clear jumpers.Move the little cup from positions 1-2 to 2-3. Unplug Hard Disk. Close the machine. Insert a portable USB DVD to a usb port (have a copy of the new bios on the cd) and turn on your machine. It will boot from USB DVD drive and it will load the new bios. Machine will shut down after the new bios update. Open agin the machine, plug the Hard Disk and put back the jumpers to 1-2 position. Unplug USB DVD and it will boot from Hard Disk. That's all. IN OTHER WORDS: Bios update can be done if first you change the jumpers on motherboard.

Hi,yesterday I updated new BIOS 9SKT99A to ThinkCentre M92p (motherboard is7xm rev. 1.0). BIOS is taken from the official website of Lenovo. The update was made using the program "Flash UEFI BIOS update (Flash from operating system version)" - 9sjy99usa.exe from Windows 7 Pro x64.Now after BIOS update is PC constant reboot. The last picture before rebooting: FW status recovery error. This message hangs 0.5 seconds on the built-in video card, or 2-3 seconds on the external video card (in my case, the NVIDIA GT 730). Only thing I can do is access BIOS setting or choose boot device thru F12 or F1.I did:F9 (reset to default) and CMOS reset - no change, Boot mode UEFI or LEGACY - no change, Boot device (USB/DVD of W7, W8, W10, network boot) - no change, Disconnecting all boot devices - nochange.I need help.Thanks,Dmitriy.

A:Lenovo ThinkCentre M92p. After updating the BIOS from 06/30/2017, the system restarts constantly.

Burn a CD with the BIOS ISO, and follow the procedure for recovering from a failed BIOS update in the HMM.   If unsuccessful, do the same with the previous version of BIOS, which is at the very bottom of your system's BIOS download page. 
 
Edit:  try the older version first, if that works, then do a regular CD ISO update to the latest.

Hi,I've been considering buying a new GPU for my SFF M92p.I currently have 1GB 620 GT nvidia GPU & I would like to upgrade to a 2GB GPU.  i7-3770 Cpu 3.4GHzWindows 1016GB DDR3 RAM1T HDPSU - 240 Watt I need professional assistance on : - Can i find 2GB GPU to use on this current system @ 240 ?- If not, would i need to change my PSU ?

The GTX 750 Ti could work with a SFF M92p.   Upgrade to the latest BIOS beforehand, CD ISO method is most reliable.   Check that there aren't any taller heatsinks on the motherboard that could interfere with the graphics card (refer to photos of the card.)   
 
Since your system is older, to ensure the necessary airflow, clean the front air intake and fan with vacuum and canned compressed air, jam the fan with a cable tie or similar so it can't spin and over-speed.  Same for CPU fan and heat sink, and vac the intake and rear exhaust of the power supply.  
 

I can confirm that this MSI brand low-profile  GTX 750 Ti 2GB  card works perfectly in my M93p SFF machine without upgrading the PSU:   MSI N750-Ti-2GD5TLP
 
Measuring the power draw running Prime95 (CPU benchmark) , FurMark (GPU benchmark) , charging mobile phone via USB and copying large files at the same time , it stays below 190W.   Have been running this for several hours. I have also been playing Fallout 4 (FullHD, ultra textures, 60 FPS) for 100 hours without any problems.   As the case is quite compact, I was worried about the temperature but it stays below 80C for the GPU at full power over extended periods of time (about 25C ambient temp in the room). 
 
Installation is ok. Just mount the low profile bracket and move the PCIe 1x WiFi card (if you have one) into another slot.  Preferably le... Read more

Hello, the weirdest thing has happened. I've read all kinds of posts of the nVidia GT 1030 card being compatible with fairly recent ThinkCentres, but after 2 hours of exhausting attempts I still could not start my M92P SFF desktop with a GT 1030. A few years back the excruciatingly slow stock HDD was replaced with an Intel 535 Series 480 GB SSD, and the first thing I saw after installing the GT 1030 video card was the message 'Operating system not found'. The SSD disappeared from BIOS. Removed the GT 1030 and everything is fine. Checked that the SSDs BIOS was of the latest version, updated the PC's BIOS, found out that it was booting in legacy non-UEFI mode. Converted the system drive to GPT, switched to UEFI booting and everything worked without the video card. I was sure the problem was UEFI-related, because even without the GT 1030, prior to switching to GPT, when attempting boot in UEFI mode, I was getting exactly the same message 'No operating system found', the BIOS did non detect the SSD. Having done all this, I plug in the GT 1030 and bam! Same crap. The BIOS does not see the SSD! But why? More this time, not only it did not detect the now GPT SSD, but a couple of seconds after powering up the M92P would not turn on at all, no matter how many times I pressed/for how long held the power button. It was making some sound from the speaker though, as if it was trying to power up, but couldn't, it was not an error beep. So I had to remove the GT 1030 once again an... Read more

I just cant get a signal out through Display Port no matter what I do neither in Bios nor on Windows. And on the PC side, my Monitors are not recognized at all.

Hi,  I recently updated my BIOS to the latest version using the System Update tool from Lenovo. For a while everything seemed to be working alright, as the BIOS was dowloaded and the computer rebooted. After rebooting the first time i was presented with the BIOS utility, and noticed that the update was progressing.  After 20 or so seconds the computer rebooted again. This is where my problems began. The computer immediately started beeping this short-short-short-long melody from the speakers. I thought this was normal, so I left the computer on for quite a while.  However, the beeping never stopped. Now the beeping resumed the instant i plug the power back in. I have yet been able to actually getting any sort of information on-screen telling me what's wrong.  I've tried following the "Recovering from a POST/BIOS update failure" on page 267 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual, but no luck with that so far. No matter where I place the jumper, the beeping code is the same short-short-short-long melody (yeah, it sounds like a disney tune or something). Any bright ideas? The machine type is a M92p 2992-B3G I'd hate to have to send it in for repairs, and Lenovo's Norwegian support line doesn't open until Monday, and there seems to be no way to call their 800-number in the states from here  Oh, and would this be covered by my warranty if repairs / motherboard replacement is the only way out? UPDATE #1: I found...

Hi AhLong
Thanks for writing to us. 
5 beeps usually means CMOS failure, now it could be the battery failure or the motherboard failure. If your system is under warranty we can get it repaired or else you can check with a local Dell authorized repair center and get it checked. 
You can try another CMOS battery if available.
Do provide us your system tag#, email address and name via private message.

Hi, I just purchased an M92p Tiny for playing around a little bit with it, because I like the form factor.I got the pretty maxed out spec machine (i5 CPU, 8gb RAM, I put in my 500gb Samsung SSD, 2 x Display Ports, 1 VGA, I added a brand new mPCIe WiFi/Bluetooth card, ...).I installed Windows 10 Pro and XUbuntu as dualboot via UEFI and it works fine.By the way I also upgraded the machine with the latest BIOS firmware from the Lenovo support page. What bothers me:- I configured in BIOS a slower Lenvo splashscreen, but still it passes by pretty fast <2-3 seconds I believe -- but ok, I can live with that, but would like to see a bit more relevant and interesting information than just a splashscreen- I can ONLY see the boot splashscreen and F1 BIOS setup and F12 boot device prompt via VGA port (I played around with the configuration in BIOS auto/IGP without any effects - and multi-monitor option doesn't exist as stated in some other posts)- Once boot procedure is done, and the OS is switching graphics mode (Win10 or Xubuntu login screen in Xorg) then it switches to DisplayPort. How can I enforce the usage of the Display Port all the time from the beginning? I don't want to use the VGA port at all, but I want to have the option to see the F12 boot device prompt and maybe go to the BIOS setup via DisplayPort from time to time. Hope you guys can help me, thanks in advance!!!

I tried updating the BIOS on my M92p tiny and now I don't see the bios screen or any output. I have tried the BIOS recovery steps in the manual:- The system doesn't beep after a few minutes with a USB BIOS recovery key (tested and usb is bootable on another pc)- The system turns on but doesn't show any output or errors- I burned a BIOS CD but when plugging the CD drive into the internal sata + sata power it doesn't get powered- I tried the CD drive while being powered from another pc and then plugging the sata in - didn't do anything- The system will ramp up the fan for a split second and then the fan slows down and the system stays on- Sometimes the system will reboot a few times and then go off completely. - Taking the RAM out gives the RAM error beep code- The CPU gets hot so it must be powered at least?- I left the CMOS battery out overnight I have a vga cable plugged in, it's possible that it's outputting on the displayport so I'm not seeing anything but I find that very unlikely? Anything I've missed or could try? If not, any idea how much a replacement motherboard is?  Cheers

I got a refurb M92P with (according to the specs) an 80 watt PS (?). To upgrade I thought I'd at least try the Lenovo 240 watt (since the footprint is identical). Anyway, got it, hooked up the 24 to 14 pin adapter cable, and plugged it in. The unit wouldn't boot, kept turning on/off every couple seconds, so I shut it down and replaced the original PS. Anyone heard of that happening? It seems odd that I read of other people hooking up 3rd party PSs with the adapter cable with no problem, yet a Lenovo  made PS does this? Also, I'd hate to buy a 3rd party PS and experience the same thing. At least with the Lenovo PS the vendor accepts returns. Any insights appreciated.

Hi there,I recently got a ThinkCentre M92p (model 3227K75) with a CPU i5-3470 (3.2Ghz), 32Gb of RAM, large SSD and an nVidia GeForce GT1030.I have seen lot's of not up to dated forum regarding the upgrade options for this computer so I hope you don't mind if I make this question again: what's the best upgrade I can do, with appreciable result, for CPU and GPU? Other question: can I go for 64Gb of RAM? Thanks in advance for your suggestions!!Gennaro

I would like to upgrade my GTX 960 to a 1070. My concern is if the motherboard can support a GTX 1070. I have already replaced the power supply so that is not an issue. Just would like to verify before I make a purchase.

Last week, I updated the BIOS on the machine to the latest version. Yesterday (15/08), I noticed that the 'System Version' was set to 'Lenovo Product', so I loaded up DOS and used the Amidos tool to adjust it. It set the new value successfully, so I rebooted the machine and walked away. A few minutes later, I noticed the machine wasn't back online. I went to check on the machine and noticed that it had no output to the display, but two beeps (similar-sounding to during a BIOS update) occurred every 10 - 15 seconds. I killed the power to the machine. Upon booting, there were 2 POST beeps, but no display. I eventually managed to get the following message by unplugging the Hard Drive. And have been able to get it since with the Hard Drive plugged in.If no button is pressed, the machine turns off. It then powers itself back on a few seconds later and starts beeping, as described earlier. The system will not boot into Windows. I cannot PXE boot. I can load into BIOS, but all the settings are reset as soon as the system boots.  I followed the steps in this document, on page 267.  Unfortunately, this didn't work. I have also tried; reseating the RAM & swapping the power supply. Neither of these worked. Any help pointing me in the right direction would be massively appreciated.

Hey all, I have several ThinkCentre M92p computers at my work. I did a Lansweeper report and they all need to be patched due to Intel's SA-00086 vulnerability. I downloaded the patch from here: https://support.lenovo.com/downloads/ds031164 and when I run it the patch looks like it's installing just fine. BUT, when I run Intel's SA-00086 test utility I get this message:Tool Started 1/26/2018 12:31:06 PM
Name: IT-2
Manufacturer: LENOVO
Model: 2988E2U
Processor Name: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
Status: This system is vulnerable.
Tool StoppedI've run the utility several times but I get the same message. I've downloaded it a couple of times but still no joy.These computers originally came with Windows 8 on them and we did Microsoft's free upgrade to Windows 10. All of them have subsequently been upgraded to the 1709 version of Windows 10.  FWIW Windows 10 isn't listed as an option for the patch. Any ideas, suggestions or recommendations on how to get all of these computers patched against SA-00086?Thanks,Joe B

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.

I'm trying to add a dual-eSATA controller to my M92 model 3209. It's a PCI-express card. I've tried both the x16 and x1 (or x4, or whatever it is) and the PC just refuses to see it - it doesn't show up in the Windows 10 device manager (either as a drive controller or an unknown device) or in the BIOS. This card worked successfully in both a Dell Optiplex and an older M91 PC, so I'm fairly sure that's not the issue (it showed up in the BIOS in both of those). I have tried updating the BIOS but it didn't help. Also tried resetting the BIOS to optimal defaults, also with no results. For what it's worth, I added a PCI (non-express) sound card to the same PC, and it worked first time. Any ideas?

I recently bought a ThinkCentre M92p and attempted to boot FreeBSD on it, but the OS is not recognised.
 
According to this article:-
 
https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTIyOTg
 
only Windows and RedHat. 
 
Is this the case? And can anything be done about it? ie BIOS upgrade?...
 
Mod:  edited the Subject line to add Linux type

A:ThinkCentre M92p: What Linux can it run? FreeBSD not recognised

This doesn't go back as far as the M92:  Lenovo - Linux for Personal Systems
 
I suggest the Lenovo 'Linux' forums may be a better place to research this question:  Lenovo - Linux > Other Linux

I am trying to update the Uefi/ bios for a Lenovo Thinkcentre M82.  I created a CD with the files and followed the instructions.  The instructions say to reboot the computer with the CD in the drive.  I do this.  However, the computer boots normally to Windows. Since I have never flashed a UEFI/ bios before, I would like to understand a little more about what's actually involved.  Is part of the process to have a bootable CD and boot to it?  Or are we just using the files that are on the CD? If I have to get into the uefi bios and initiate the process through a screen in there, I don't seem to be able to get in there, for some reason.  I tried F1, F2, F10, F12, and enter (each on separate boots).  I also tried to initiate the process through Windows (there is a choice "updated UEFI firmware").
