Re: Lenovo H520s Graphics Card Question

Thank you very much! 

 

Also, the datasheet says that it can have up to NVIDIA®GeForce®GT630 2GB. Would the 4GB still work or should I switch to a 2GB ?

Hi Afx,

 

As per the Datasheet the H520s supports only up to 2GB Graphic card, if above this graphic card is inserted the Hardware will not get detected.

 

Do post us back for further queries.

 

Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Really sorry but I have 1 more thing to ask Smiley Tongue

 

The company wont reply so will this graphics card work with the H520s? Once again thank you very much for the support.

Hi Afx,

 

This Graphic card should be compatible as per the specification of PCI slot provided in the Motherboard. However I suggest you to check with the Graphic Card manufacturer to get it confirmed before ordering, please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Cheers!Smiley Happy

Re: Lenovo H520s Graphics Card Question

Update: I forgot about this post I made a long time ago.

 

None of those graphics cards fit in the H520s.

I tried THREE different graphics cards and none fitted. 

The problem lies in the extension slot thing that you remove to put the graphics card in (obviously I took the top off) and it doesnt fit through, can ANYONE reccomend a graphics card that would fit through that

I would just like to say thanks for the help but I wasted money (luckily the company refunded me) and time.

Re: Lenovo H520s Graphics Card Question

I also have a Lenovo H520s and want to enhance my system with the following graphics card (NVIDIA QUADRO K620 with 2GB) to get 4k resolution (no games, only office and CAD usage):

http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00MO4RDBY?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00.

 

The card perfectly fits in the slot but it doesn't work. I also replaced the power supply to a new one with 500W.

After installing the card and booting the system I can't get a signal over the display port cable.

Is there anything I can do to get the system work?

 

Thanks for every hints!
