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.)

I'm working on an issue with a Lenovo M90p desktop running Windows 7 64bit. It's connected via cable to a router that works for other devices. the cable has been tested with other devices, so I've narrowed the issue down to this physical device. The Windows troubleshooter is unable to fix the problemI tried to disable and reenable the network adapterI've tried to restore to a point in time before the issue started which didn't change anything.I've tried to uninstall the adapter via device manager and rebooted but Windows couldn't find the driver by itself. I've downloaded the intel ethernet driver from lenovo site manually from a different computer and installed it but it didn't change anything.Do you have any suggestions to possible next steps?

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.

Puchased 2 Think Centres from a local university. No operating system on either. Tried installing Win 10 with media creation tool on flash drive then the ISO on DVD. The Windows logo comes on the screen and freezes. After about a min, it says something went wrong and restarts only to the same result. Someone said I need drivers but can you install drivers without an operating system installed? the units originally had Win 7.

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

Hello, I have a M900 and an Samsung NVMe SSD 960 EVO M.2. On the Aminboard is a slot for a M.2 device. This is not the right one for the Samsung SSD. So I have bought an adapter (aqua computer - kyroM.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 NGFF PCIe SSD, M-Key mit Passivkühler). After installing (PCIeSlot 4x) and booting the SSD is not recognized in the BIOS and in Windows (10 Prof. 64Bit).Where is the problem? Is the adapter wrong?

A:ThinkCentre M900 Desktop SamsungNVMe SSD 960 EVO M.2

That card you ordered definitely is not right.
 
I think this StarTech PCIe card is more what you need.
 

Supports PCIe M.2 SSDs
The adapter supports PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe (M Key) and PCIe-AHCI M.2 SSDs including 2242, 2260, 2280, and 22110 drives. The expansion slot adapter supports the most common drive sizes including 110 mm, 80 mm, 60 mm and 42 mm.
 
 
Here's another card that is also acceptable.

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 - I'm getting a BSOD approximately once an hour. Typically the Taskbar and Firefox freeze (if I have other apps open I can alt-tab to them for a bit), then after a minute or two I get a BSOD. It started happening I think about three weeks ago. Initially it was once every couple of days and was manageable but it has reached the point where it is affecting my productivity. I can't think of any specific updates or applications I may have installed around that time. The issue also happens when I boot in Safe Mode. Furthermore, if I am not at the PC at the time it goes into a boot loop with messages like "No operating system found" and "Media test failure, check cable." There are no cables, but I have tried removing the unit from the monitor and plugging it back in again.I have tried updating the BIOS. I wanted to try and take a look at the dump files but I'm either looking in the wrong spot or can't work out how to make my PC generate them. I've raised a ticket with support in case it's hardware-related but they're taking a long time to respond so I thought I'd throw it to the community in the hope someone could assist, maybe tell me what I should be checking etc. Appreciate any assistance - thanks!
