Thinkstation S10 will not boot or post after GPU upgrade -
I am having a hard time getting this thinkstation S10 to boot with a new GPU. The pc runs just fine with the standard quadro fx 1700 in it. But as soon as I put my ati hd 5770 or nvidia gtx 460 in it won't post.
When I put the new cards in I get wierd beep codes. Sometime they are 4-2-3-3 then sometimes its 1 long and 2 short. It just shuts down and turns on and repeats but nothing comes up on the screen.
The specs are:
Thinkstation S10 6483
3.ghz core 2 duo
4gb of ddr3 pc8500 ECC.
Unfortunately, the short answer is that those cards aren't supported.
The officially-supported workstation graphics cards in the S10 include:
- quadro NVS290
- quadro FX370
- quadro FX570
- quadro FX1700
- quadro FX4600
- tesla C870
Desktop or gaming cards aren't supported.
Some users have reported success with an ATI 4870 in their S10, but noted that the ATI 5xxx doesn't work.
