Re: Lenovo H520s Video Card

Hello, i got the Nvidia gt 620 2gb as suggested.. and yet i still do not get a display when turning my computer on.. and when you force your computer off by holding the button down instead it just instantly turns off when the gpu is in?

Help please..

I have an i3-2120 processor and a 350w power supply(http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261252751399?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2648)

Re: Lenovo H520s Video Card

Hi All,

 

For those who aren't able to get the discrete graphics card working, can you try to boot into the BIOS (press  F1 on power up) and set the following settings:

 

Devices Tab:

Video Setup = Auto or PEG

 

Security Tab:

Secure Boot = Disabled

 

Startup/Boot Tab:

CSM = Enabled

Boot Mode = Auto

Boot Priority = Legacy First

 

Exit Tab:

OS Optimized Defaults=Enabled

 

When done, press F10 to save and exit BIOS and observe if you can now boot from the discrete card.

 

Note:

In some cases, the OS may fail to boot after performing the above procedure. You may need to press the OneKey Recovery button or use a recovery media to restore the OS

The GT 630 works in this system (and is way better than the other one you posted.)   Just make sure the particular card you select will physically fit in the slot of the system.
