Lenovo H430: mb CIH61MI v1.1, replacement video card not working

Hi everyone,

I've found an old PC with a burned Graphics card. I really don't know wich model is it, i know just the Motherboard say CIH61MI v1.1.

It mount an I5 3350p and i changed my PSU in to another one, like the video card, i take one 660ti from another Computer (the video card works perfectly).

The problem is, the computer starts normally but with no Video output. I can't see anything. I'm sure the videocard work perfectly in another pc. I've also tried to change it with another 2 older models but same.

What can i do? I didn't found a list of compatible models with that motherboard, someone can help me? I'd like a Manual too, i didn't find on web!

Thanks for all the possible help!



I'm italian and sorry for my bad english!


Mod:  edited Subject line to add what I Googled to be the system model number

Re: Motherboard CIH61MI v1.1

I am having this same issue, tried installing a gtx 560 and an r9 270.. PC won't boot. I then installed my DELL OEM hd 7570, and the PC booted. This must be a limitation of the motherboard's PCIE x16 slot, though I am not sure. I have heard the people have been able to install GPUs like the rx 580 on this MOBO, so why don't my GPUs work?
