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.)

Hi everyone, I recently bought a Lenovo ThinkCentre M91p 7033 - Core I5 2400 3.1ghz - 2gb with a board Intel Q67 Express and i changed the hardware to normal tower from asus, a large one, everything workfine, i even add more 4gb on memory ram and change the PSU for a 430w and left the old one(240w i think) in the chassis thinkcentre.  Now i want to add a MSI Nvidia 1030 GT 2Gb LowProfile OC and i want to know if works or not. I already downloaded the file with nvidia cards list compatibility, the 1030 gt doens't show there but maybe still work on this system ? And if doens't work on this system, i saw in that same nvidia card list from lenovo that GTX 1050 is compatible with this system, you think this current system can handle it ? I would apreciate some help, is my first time working with a lenovo setup.

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.

A:M91P 7033 WGM - GTX 1050 and Gt 1030 Compatibility

Now i want to add a MSI Nvidia 1030 GT 2Gb DDR5 LowProfile OC  and i want to know if works or not. I already downloaded the file with nvidia cards list compatibility, the 1030 gt doens't show there but maybe still work on this system ? And if doens't work on this system, i saw in that same nvidia card list from lenovo that MSI Nvidia GTX 1050 2gb DDR5  is compatible with this system, you think this current system can handle it ?
 

 If it's not on the list, it will probably will not work.   Since you have a 430w supply, a Gtx 1050 Ti, which is on the list, should work fine, just ensure the card will physically fit in the space for the x16 slot.  
 
Edit:  It is now known that the GT 1030 will work in a M91p (and other ThinkCentres, starting with M90/p generation system.)

I have 4 desktop Lenovo ThinkCentre MT-M 7033-A2U (M91p) machines in my office. We purchased them refurbished about 1 year ago. Recently, all 4 machines are experiencing sudden freezing. Monitor remains on, mouse and keyboard input is ignored (cursor remains frozen in position). The only way to recover is to hard reset, at which point the machine operates normally. There are no warning signs leading up to the freeze. It seems to occur when there is a sudden increase in activity (opening a large Excel workbook, running a large report, etc.). It is intermittent - it can be 1-30 days between occurrences. All users with this model have experienced it at least once, and have lost work as a result. Event viewer reports a Critical event in which the device loses power at the same time as the freeze ("Kernel-Power: The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first.") A second Error event is created upon hard reset ("EventLog: The previous system shutdownn was unexpected.") Perhaps the hard drive is losing power when the electrical draw increases? Perhaps a flaw in motherboard power flow?Would replacing the hard drives with Solid State Drives correct this, as they draw less power? Replacing the hard drive would certainly be more affordable than replacing the entire machine.

I used a M91p for business for years without issue.  I'm pretty sure the HDD is powered directly from the power supply, so a flaw in the motherboard would not be possible.  Perhaps if you provided details of the OS, BIOS version, details of any graphics cards, or devices installed or attached, memory size and apps you're using, we could help you more.

A:ThinkCentre M91p motherboard and ECC RAM??

My question goes like this : On a out-of-warranty ThinkCentre M91p, if we replace the standard CPU (i5) with a socket compatible Xeon CPU, will the motherboard support ECC RAM?

No.  It's the Intel Chipset that interfaces to memory, and only workstation and server Chipsets support ECC.  Check the specs for your desktop Chipset if you like. 
 
Also, just because a processor will fit into the socket, does not mean it will be supported by the BIOS.   Sometimes there is overlap between ThinkCentres and ThinkStations which do use Xeons.   If so, that Thinkstation model will be listed on your BIOS download page, but for unknown reasons that upgrade does not always work.

Hello, I cannot find the way to install an AMD FirePro v3900 on a ThinkCentre M91p.I need such board for sharing the desktop between two monitors having a DisplayPort and a DVI and don't have enough time to purchase another board. On the M92p, I can use it by going in the BIOS, set the video settings to "PEG" (PCI-e Graphics Device), enable Multi-Monitor support. The cards works and I can later install the driver (coming with AMD Catalyst) to obtain the possibility extending the desktop to two screens. But on the M91p, it does not work : the screen connected to the PCI Express graphic card reports "no signal" no matter if I connect the display with the DVI or the DisplayPort. I also tried setting the video to "IGD" (Internal Graphics Device) or to "Auto" with the graphic card plugged, but connecting the cable to the M91p's native VGA or DisplayPort, with the hope that I could see something and install the driver for the graphic card. But there is no signal to the native ports when the video card is plugged. I also trid using AMD Radeon cards which were working with ThinkCenter M91p or M92p.One with HDMI+DVI works.One with DisplayPort+DVI doesn't.I need a board with DisplayPort (DP) as most of my screens have DP and no HDMI. The drivers are up to date (including the chipset). Only the BIOS was not updated.Should I update it ? Or does the problem have other origin (e.g. power) ? Thank you very much for your help.

A better way to add Bluetooth to a desktop is with a USB dongle.   
 
Bluetooth is a quickly evolving technology, and to support later devices, you'll need an adapter that supports the latest versions of Bluetooth.    'Newegg' is a good place to look for anything computer related.

Hello, I recently bought a Thinkcentre m91p desktop. It comes with an Intel Core i5-2400 and a motherboard Lenovo 7052A9G (BIOS 9HKT47AUS - 01/10/2012). What is strange is that the CPU fan runs almost all the time at full speed. I installed HWMonitor and the CPU temperature is normal, but I noticed that one value, the VR temp, is changing all the time and is very high (around 100°C and sometimes more than 200°C, even at startup). I'm thinking about buying a Zalman Fanmate in order to control manually the CPU fan, but I would like to know if this is a known problem and if there's a solution to fix this. Thanks !

I'd recommend going into the UEFI, which replaces the old BIOS standard, and resetting to optimal defaults, which will likely fix the issue. You also should update it, if you have access to a Windows system use rufus to format a bootable dos usb stick and copy the contents of the USB Drive UEFI BIOS Flash Package so you won't need Windows (or a CD) on the actual system to do updates. The current version is 58 vs the 43 you have on there now. By the way you can also use rufus to install Windows to a usb drive for 'Windows To Go' mode which is quite useful at times, especially if you don't want Windows on the system itself. You can download a Windows 10 iso directly from Microsoft's website and via rufus  'Windows To Go' mode isn't limited to just the Enterprise version. CHANGES for 9HKT58A/9HJT58A

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.

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? 

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

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.

I need to upgrade the PSU as much as possible because I'll be running Adobe Creative Suite CS6 (no need for or interest in), and want to install the GT 1030 card. I can't seem to find any definitive PSU information about this machine. So, I'm asking - what is the MAXIMUM watt make and model you've found to use? I've seen posts give some vague information, but not enough so that I can actually order one. Thanks in advance for the help!

Hey folks,
 
Got an M93 with Win 10. Lenovo solution center asks to do upgrades on BIOS and a bunch of drivers. Did that, and now I can't boot the computer. 
 
Tried pressing F1 after pressing start button, no help. Can't enter BIOS, still stuck at lenovo screen. Also tried Ctrl+Alt+Del on that screen, blacks out then stuck at lenovo screen again. 
 
Please help and inform, thanks!!!

A:ThinkCentre: Stuck at Lenovo splash screen after lenovo solution bios upgrade

I would try resetting the BIOS using the jumper, or by taking out the CMOS battery, wait a minute or two, and then replace it and try booting up. See page 73 of the Hardware Maintenance Manaul linked below for location of the Clear CMOS/Recovery jumper (# 20) https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/thinkcentre_pdf/m83m93p_hmm.pdf Clearing the CMOS (BIOS)1. Remove all media from the drives and turn off all attached devices and the computer. Then, disconnect all power cords from electrical outlets and disconnect all cables that are connected to the computer. 2. Remove the computer cover. 3. Locate the Clear CMOS /Recovery jumper on the system board. 4. Move the jumper from the standard position (pin 1 and pin 2) to the maintenance position (pin 2 and pin 3). 5. Reinstall the computer cover and connect the power cord. 6. Turn on the computer and leave it on for approximately 10 seconds. Then, turn off the computer by holding the power switch for approximately five seconds. 7. Repeat step 1 through step 2. 8. Move the Clear CMOS /Recovery jumper back to the standard position (pin 1 and pin 2). 9. Reinstall the computer cover and connect the power cord. Good Luck,

I purchased an M710e (with 1 Tb HD) and a 16 Gb Intel Optane M.2 NVMe SSD module, hoping to use the Optane as a cache to speed up the slow HD.  The M710e chipset is supposed to be "Optane Ready", so I didn't expect any problems.  I updated the BIOS to the latest M1ZKT23A version (was shipped with 20A), and the change info in the BIOS readme indicates lots of changes to support Optane, which I took to be a good sign. However, I can't get the system (running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, version 1803) to recognize the Optane drive (as an Optane), so the Intel Rapid Storage Tech software won't enable Optane performance caching, and build the RST RAID setup to optimize the HD.  The RST software says that there is no Optane installed. I followed the steps in this Lenovo tutorial: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/ca/en/solutions/HT504150.  The SetupOptaneMemory.exe ran fine, installed the RST drivers (latest version) into the system, and switched the BIOS SATA mode to Intel RST with Optane, as it was supposed to.  My BIOS is also set to CSM=Disabled, Boot Mode=UEFI-only, and Windows was installed in UEFI mode.  As the above Lenovo tutorial says, OS Optimized Defaults=Enabled. In the BIOS under Devices -> ATA Drive Setup, there is now an Intel RST submenu, as expected, but it only shows my HD (which is SATA drive 1, in SATA port 0.0) as non-RAID physical disk.  The Optane doesn't appear as a physical disk in this RST submenu.  I do...
