Q: Graphic card on a ThinkCentre M90p USFF with a single classic PCI slot low profile only?

I want to upgrade my Lenovo m90p usff eco with a graphics card, but it's just PCI Slot. I bought a SPARKLE geforce 8400gs PCI low profile and BIOS did not recognize it. I installed OS X Yosemite and I need the graphical acceleration. Which card can be compatible?

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.)

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

I have a Lenovo ThinkCentre M91 7516-AC3 and would like to insert a PCI adapter, but there is a blanking plate preventing access to the port on the adapter and I can't work out how to take it off. I've looked at the HMM but don't see any instructions.... I don't want to use brute force as I might damage the unit. Could anyone explain how to release it?

Hi all!I've recently got an used M90p USFF 5296-W1D which I'd like to upgrade with RAM and HDD: In the HMM is stated 4GB RAM limit - is this still true or was it only at the time the manual was printed? If not: what is the max RAM possible? 8GB or 16GB? There is no mention of max HDD size - what is the limit? I have seen in the past different limits with some controllers (137GB, 2-3TB) and would like to know if a 10TB 3,5"HDD is useable without ID11 disc controller error. Cheers

hi there,
i need to know which know which graphic card will fit for my computer. Ie i want to know which type: DDR ,DDR1 or ddr2 i bought my computer in 2007, but thats not enough to tell.
so please let me know how do i know which pci slot i have?
 

A:which graphic card slot do i require for my PCI slot

The type of memory doesn't matter, its the type of interface the computer supports among a few other things to watch for.

You likely have a PCI-Express slot, as long as it a x16 slot it doesn't really matter if its a version 1.1 or 2.0 slot.

Is this for your Dell or another computer? Whats you budget and what needs do you have for the video card?

While contemporaneous ATI/AMD graphics cards will work, newer generation AMD cards are generally not backward compatible with older ThinkCentres.   I suggest you search for which newer Nvidia will work with your system. 
 
The readme file for the Nvidia driver for your system has a list of supported cards, but since it is from 2009, it is dated.

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.

Hi everyone,

6 Months ago I switched on my desktop PC after a long aircooled night, noticed that my case fans (actually two of them) are running extremely fast and the PC keeps rebooting before reaching the OS screen. I looked into the pc and was shocked! the PC was just sinking in water! Yes, you read that right! I was turning-on my PC multiple times while ALL the parts were covered in water (motherboard surface, all expansion cards surfaces, hard disks ... everything!). Condensed humidity was transformed by the air conditioner into a complete water shower! I unplugged the PC and dried it out using an air blower and let it dry near the window for about an hour, then turned it on again, and YES! everything was working fine! felt very happy as I survived the catastrophe, and returned back to the normal daily use of the PC, but of course without using ANY air cooling in that room again!

2 Weeks ago, I got a defect in my motherboard: one memory slot is malfunctioning (the PC never boots with that slot occupied). I emptied that slot and currently using the other 3 slots only, and resumed using the PC.

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!

@Dr_Saiful?, welcome to the forum. Here is the Maintenance and Service Guide for the computer.  Beginning on Page 26 you will find the Workstation Specifications.  In the specs it says that two video cards can be used as long as the required wattage is no more than 150W.  I suspect that you may be exceeding the wattage of your power supply unit (PSU). Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

Hello and welcome to the forums, antonice22!

Have you tried using a different monitor or TV with your computer to check whether it's your monitor or the graphics card's fault?

What is the make and model of the current monitor that you are using?

Hi I have a Thinkcentre M55e with core 2 duo E4500, 2,2 MHz processor, 4GB RAM and Intel 946GZ Express graphics.After installing windows 7 graphics are not working properly. The problems is that computer crashes when running certain applications like Google Earth for example.Running Lenovo diagnostics I received a message that prompt me to reinstall official graphics driver.  I tried to download drivers from Lenovo site but I couldn't manage to do it. I have downloaded drivers from Intel site witch I 've installed to my computer, but the problem persists. Lenovo diagnostics result:"Final result code: W3JMEFP8159G-R4XE2B 1/25/2019 21:14:39 - Video Memory  Test Try to reinstall the official display driver that supports your productDirect3D commands could not be sentOpenCL commands could not be sent." Does anybody has any suggestions what to do or how can I get the official display drivers for Intel 946GZ Express? Thanks!

Hello All, I'm looking under the hood of my 1st gen Thinkpad X1 Carbon, and I'm trying to identify the PCIe slots.  In particular, the following page states that I should have 2 PCI Express Mini slots:  https://support.lenovo.com/au/en/solutions/pd027202 Now I see the WLAN card and the WWAN card, and my natural assumption is that these are both in PCIe ports, but on closer inspection I see that the WLAN card's slot is only 19mm wide, whereas the WWAN card is the standard 26mm width of normal PCIe Mini ports. This raises some questions:  1. Is the WLAN connected to a proprietary slot, or is this just a different type of PCIe standard?  2. If the WLAN is connected to a proprietary slot, where is my second PCIe slot? Any help would greatly be appreciated. Regards,Adam Zebrowski-az  

A:Why is my WLAN card slot narrower than my WWAN card slot (PCIe mini)?

On closer inspection, it looks like my SSD connects to a similar-looking slot as my WLAN card.  I guess this means my WLAN card uses a SATA connection or something? I normally work with desktop PCs, so I'm unfamiliar with a lot of these laptop hardware standards. Regards,Adam Zebrowski-az-

I was hoping to boot from the SD card a live linux, but it appears there may not be a way to do this?  If it's not possible, is there a way to boot from a small portion of the regular drive, then load into the sd card? Basically I don't want to have a USB slot being taken up by a drive and the SD card slot is just really convienent.

User profile is set up for network access. The user can go to any computer on the network and login. However, there is one computer on the network that will not allow the user to login. It says "The User Profile Service failed the logon user profile
cannot be loaded". This issue only happens on this single computer for this singe user's profile. Other users can use that computer to logon just fine. What's going on?
