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 confused, the photo in the link above shows it having a connector. Isn't a case of simply connecting it to where the old one was?

I have a ThinkCentre M81. I am currently trying to put the guts of it in a different case, so that I can add some more disk storage to it. I have checked all of the guides I can find on the Lenovo Support site, and they just show the location of the connector, and how to repalce the front panel.  I am trying to connect standard ATX front panel connections to my M81 motherboard, which I am having some trouble with, due to the Lenovo front panel connector just being one big connector. I am just wondering if this information would be in a resource I missed somewhere, or if I have to trace out the wires.

First of all, I would like to appologize since Im not an expert on IT and I dont know most of the technical words to refeer to some things... And so I have my computer at work. I used to love it because it was so fast and I could do plenty of tasks with it at the same time (e.i. listening to music while I translate some docs, searching on internet looking for words, forums, etc.) But last year, it started to reboot/restart by itselft. I realized it happens when I see videos on youtube (but not always), when I check some websites with music or when the website has too much information and pics and similars (for instance, online news websites, official websites, etc.) Last year also, it had a sound coming form the CPU...It was like the ventilator I think, but now not any more. When I ran the examination everything seems fine so I really dont know what is wrong with it... Someone had experience something similar???

Hello Lenovo Support Forum! This is my first post here, happy to meet you all. 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? ThinkCentre M91p desktopModel : 7052A7F Best regards,Idexo

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.

Hiya, In my current PC I have an i5 3470, and In the Thinkcentre M91p i have recently purchased, it has an i7 2600, which is a little overkill for what ive purhcased it for, so I was thinking of swapping the cpu's so I have the 2600 in my gaming PC and the Thinkcentre gets the 3470.However I'm not sure if this would work as I have no idea whether the motherboard of the ThinkCentre would accept the new Ivy Bridge chip, and I don't even know if my Asus P8H77-V would accept the 2600?So would this work? and how would I go about doing it? Im a noob at all this im sorry ;(All answers are much appreciated, Ajsski99

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 100C and sometimes more than 200C, 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 !

Hello everyone! I've tried upgrading my ThinkCentre M91p with a R7 250X graphics card and a 500W PSU. The graphics card is slightly bigger than the one that came with the desktop, if that information is any helpful. The problem is that the PC turns on, but my monitor doesn't recieve any output. I checked the slots and everything is plugged in as it should be. According to some similar topics, the GPU is too strong for the BIOS. Is there any way to fix this? This is the only graphics card I have. Thank you!

A:ThinkCentre M91p won't work with AMD R7 250X

See this recent thread:  Lenovo-m91p-White-List-GPUs
M91p BIOS has two modes, UEFI and a compatibility? mode, I suggest you try both.  Also, check that the BIOS setting for the Video Devices is set to [AUTO], or has the Multi-Monitor Support = Enabled.  Otherwise, it may only use the internal graphics, ignoring the card.

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.

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'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

How do I fix my Lenovo ThinkCentre High Performance M91P Desktop Computer that froze, fan speed increases and won't display on the monitor anymore?Hello, today my computer froze and now I can't see the screen anymore. It's been freezing multiple times but now after I unplugged it, it won't display anymore. I have a meeting tomorrow on this computer! This is the last time I buy a "certified refurbished" computer on Amazon !  Also, when I turned the computer back on the fan speed increased. It was getting louder and louder. I thought it was going to explode! Well I repeatedly hold down the power button and unplug the power cord and that's not working. That's what I would do every time my screen froze in the past.

My daughter has a M91P model 7052-A9G serial number S4VEK82 running Windows XP SP3 for compatibility with legacy software.  Her existing monitor is connected via VGA and she now wishes to use a Dell U2715H for better definition.
When she connects the new monitor to the display port on the M91P it is not recognised by the system and the video is still only active on the VGA port.
She is 80 miles from me and I support her using Team Viewer which enabled me to switch the desktop display properties to digital but still no output on the Dell so I changed it back to VGA so that she could work.

When I Googled for your problem, I found this on the Dell forum.  The built-in Intel graphics on M91p has DP 1.1: 

RE: U2515H - "no signal coming from your computer"

This happened to me when I enabled DP 1.2 option in the menu.
If that is the case, you do not have a DP 1.2 compatible hardware and software/OS. (perhaps if you are using a linux machine)
When your monitor tells no signal... push a menu button for about 10 seconds. It will show you other input sources, keep pushing. Then it will bring a menu to disable DP 1.2. Disable it. Restart the computer.

I purchased a Temp sensor unit to fill a 3.5" empty bay where a floppy was. It has the standard 2 leads with one CPU sensor, and one HD sensor. I was just wondering what the best location is to adhere the HD sensor. I have it taped to the middle of the top and it's reading about 22C which seems low.

I have 2 EIDE hard drives(both WD), the master and slave have a slot between them. With only one lead I put the sensor on the master of course. I realize these things aren't that accurate, just trying to do the best I can.

So the question is were exactly is the best place to put the CPU sensor. Ive heard its bad to put it in the heat sink of the CPU cooler so were is a good place.

I know you'll say they are just not very reliable but i would like to make it as reliable as possible.

Alright so I got a rather strange topic that has been in my head the last couple of years, I just never posted or said anything about this on a forum or to someone else. I just thought I'd finally share it, and this place seems to be a great place to find a possible answer to a problem I had with my old system that I was never able to solve.

Is it possible to actually corrupt a temp sensor reading when using different kinds of temp reading software? I know its an odd question. I tried doing a google search on this awhile back and i think i found only one thread on another forum where a person actually corrupted his readings.

Lemme explain... I had my old system of xp2000+ on an A7V333. I've had that system for 5+ yrs. During that time I noticed my temps go slowly higher and higher. Despite changing the heatsink with about 7 different kinds of heatsinks and reapplying with many different kinds of thermal materials including AS3, 4 as well as other AS products (I even used thermal padding that came with the HSFs) every single re-installation of the HSFs did nothing to the temp readings. It always read 60C no matter what I did. I just got so fed up I gave up in trying to lower the temps. Whats pretty funny is that during the entire time I was using my xp2000+ system I had no problems during those years. Surely if those readings were true I would of had problems. A 60C temp reading isn't good if it was real, is it? Thats not even gaming or during the SUMMMER!... Read more

A:CPU Temp sensor corruption, is it possible?

Since those sensors are probably the type that change electrical conductivity with heat to ascertain a 'temperature', it is a high probability that many do indeed fail over a period of time.

It would not surprise me in the least.

I have an AMD Athlon 64 3200+ processor and when I look at the temps it fluctualates a lot depeneding on if I put it on standby or shut it down. Like when I have it shut down and then start it, it is in the high 30 or low 40 Celcius. And it may go up a bit (tops 50) if I am playing games, but then it comes back down. Now if I take it out of standby (only RAM gets power) it starts at mid 50's (it won't go any lower) and can go up to 60 when playing games. I read somewhere that the sensors don't always work propely so is this the case here?

A:Is my CPU temp. sensor not working?

Read other 16 answers

OK have read a few web site info about temp sensors, most cover desktops and a few touch on laptops. Well I have been monitoring the temp of my CPU and I have found the 100 C is the max temp, Well not knowing it I play UT3 on high performance setting and it reached a high temp of 105, which I think means I either have the wrong sensor reading or AMD doesn't know the top temp cause at 105 I would think I should have fried my CPU since I was playing for at least 30 mins.

So I am basicly asking for help on finding the right Temp sensor and program to monitor it and if possible warn me in some way or put the laptop into sleep mode if it temp reaches to high.

I have my specs filled out and using

Core temp .99.5 which was recommended to me.

Also please explain in simple terms please, the doctors have me on 15mg morphine IR and muscles relaxers so I need it simple right now LOL. I will try and find the sites I visited if that would help. Oh and any info that might be need I will find and post as this heat issue concerns me.

CPU ID 0x200F31
revision LG-B1
VID 1.1250v -set to high perf.
vid .9500v set to balanced CPU running at 50%
I think I got my request across the best I could. Thanks for reading this and any help I can get.

A:Hardware Temp Sensor???

HWMonitor, RealTemp, SpeedFan, are ones I have used. I really don't like speedfan but it's the only one that will read some CPUs I have found. HWMonitor is good but none are always right. None are completely dependable.

I got this new case and it came with a temp. sensor (lcd on front of case). I want to place it on my GPU but I don't know exactly where the best spot would be. Any suggestions?

A:Temp. Sensor placement


Need more details.Is this a CPU cooler ?
Anyhow it should have install instructions.
You do mean "CPU" don't you ?

Hey all,

A few people here turned me on to the AIDA32 person system information software and I've got to say its pretty neat.

But, over in the temp sensor section I can not figure out what the AUX temp sensor is measuring...

I checked my bios, double checked my monitoring program PC alet 4. and even started up fuzzylogic just to see if any of these had an additional sensor I wasn't aware of.

Here is my concern...
Motherboard temp 31C/ 88F
CPU 39C/102F

Both the mobo and CPU temps are exactly to PC Alert 4 (and are what I expect to see normally.)
By ambient case temp is 29/ 77F just to confuse you a little more.

Cooling has never really been a concern.... The hottest by P4 ever ran was 56 and that was OCd at 2.5, so I have no idea where is number could of come from, but its a little too toasty for my likes.

Any ideas?

A:AIDA32 aux temp sensor

I assumed that Aux Temp referred to the Power Supply Unit.

Just checked mine :

Mobo - 24 C
CPU - 48 C
Aux - 21 C

Is anyone experience some odd temperature diode changes in SpeedFan?
I have set sensor diode 1,2,3 to thermistor diode, PII diode, thermistor diode. Even though the settings have been saved sometimes the diode setting is changed to a different setting. My memory is not overclocked, but my CPU is and stable. I don't think it's my memory since I have not noticed any similar cases of this with other apps paremeters getting changed.

I bought a new case. Pretty good (should be with it's hefty price tag of 65 ($130))

It has a HDD and CPU temperature sensor connected to the front screen. I have two hard drives so I just wedges the HDD sensor between the two hard drive, lovely job.

Where do I poke the CPU sensor to get a reading of CPU temp?

I'm confused

The desktop currently can only access the internet using the hardwired RJ 45 connection, but I would like to add the ability to access the internet wirelessly by installing a wireless card in one of the available PCI express slots. I would like to know what wireless cards are available and compatible with this model. Thank you!

I have a Leadtek A250 Ultra ti4600. The manual that came with the card mentions a "Hardware Monitor" that registers temps for the card on the desktop. I downloaded the WinFox program from the installation CD, but cannot access the "Hardware Monitor" program. I tried to find out if that option was available for my card at the Leadtek website, but could not. Do many video cards have this type of feature?

I am assuming that there is not a temp sensor on my video card, but I thought I would ask the through the forum, just to make sure.

Thanks, Al

A:Video Card Temp Sensor

Some cards do and some don't. One program that I find will tell you with a fair degree of certainty if it does is Everest: http://www.lavalys.com/products/download.php?pid=1&lang=en&pageid=3
Look under the Computer -> Sensor section for a GPU sensor reading. If you see one then you can try something like Speedfan to see if it'll read it too. Speedfan is really handy provided it reads the sensors you want.

Hi, A couple of weeks ago temp sensor 1 gives a false reading, it says it reads 99 degr C, whilst it isnt! This results in a fast spinning CPU fan which makes a lot of noise. Is there anyway to override this sensor? Thanks! Pieter

Hi guys, I just picked up a dell OptiPlex 755. I like it but Iv'e had a lot of work to do on it . someone loaded windows 7 over the windows vista it came with but did not finish the job,so I had a lot of fun getting it going. After getting avg on it ,getting explorer 8 updated to 11 ,getting the sp1 and other programs and updates up and going, I changed the ram. it came with just 1 gig of ram and I was lucky to have just the right sticks to upgrade it to 4gigs. Don't worry I checked out the speck before changing the memory, however I now get a message when I start up the computer that it cannot detect the air sensor or the front panel?? also the fan seems to be running fairly hard. can someone explain what might be the problem thx dewitt

Like, for example, I could say to alert when a certain sensor goes above 90 degrees? I have SpeedFan, but it's no good for checking that the GPU temp is alright when running a fullscreen game.


A:Does anyone know of a program to alert when a temp sensor goes too high?

Hardware monitor has available addons for things like this i think

So I have five options for a screen brightness: Darkest, Darker, Suggested, Brighter, Brightest. So the "Suggested" options, as it may seems, supposed to use the light sensor and adjust the screen brightness corespondedly but instead it has the fixed brightness level, right in the middle between Darker and Brighter. It can never be the "Darker" or the "Brightest" as you may expect, it has always fixed value.  So my question is: Are there a way to make the light sensor actualy do the usefull job?

So my screen can suddenly blink on and off. It also turned my windows to sleep mode. I suspected screen cable connection but now I'm sure it's the lid sensor. Now it doesn't go to sleep mode anymore since I disabled "sleep when lid is closed" on power settings, now it's only blinks like crazy. When I start touching the area on the right side of my camera, the screen start blinking (don't even need a magnet, only touch!). I think I have messed up my warranty (I cracked the screen, after the lid switch broken tho). I can't search the lid sensor model on the internet, maybe it's integrated with the webcam microphone? Will this be expensive? I can't even find the lid sensor on t470 repair manual. Is the lid sensor located behind the microphone?

A:How do I repair Lid sensor (hall sensor?) on T470?

You can find the sensor location by finding the magnet under the palmrest.  I take a small steel screw and slide it around the palmrest until it snaps to the magnet.  The sensor is in the lit where it hits that spot.

I have tried a few different windows images, windows troubleshooting feature, and the latest versions of the drivers.
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, disabling and re-enabling, re-imaging, updating windows. None have had the effect of actually making it work. I'm running win 10.0.10240, on dell latitude 5285 and 5289. This is affecting the entire Intel Integrated Sensor Solution Driver and all the included sensors, compass, accelerometer, gyroscope GPS and ambient light.
