Graphics Card in my Lenovo ThinkCentre M91p 7033

Hi.

 I would like to know if a AMD Radeon R7 200 series graphics card will work in my

 Lenovo ThinkCentre M91p 7033

I have inserted it into my pc but now the pc wont start up.the pc powers on but the screen does not turn on.

It works when I remove the graphics card and it also works when I put in the old graphics card.

 

Is there a way I can get it to work.

 

Thanks

Shawn

Are you at the latest BIOS?    If not, use the ISO image to update (less chance of the update process wedging the motherboard.)

Not for the BIOS, you want to get that directly from the Lenovo support website.   

 

Do you have access to a different system, to verify the card is good?   Or you can contact tech support for the graphics card.

Sorry, I don't have any other ideas.  

 

While I have the same system (except a tower - but with the same motherboard), I used a previous generation AMD HD graphics card, but have since switched to a current gen Nvidia card (GTX 750 Ti - and an upgraded power supply and fans.)    Of note, Lenovo support has current drivers for Nvidia cards available for download, but not for AMD.
