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.

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

I downloaded and updated my BIOS to the latest version. It hasnt work.
I downloaded the BIOS update from the lenovo website. Is there any other fix i could try and is there any other site I can get the BIOS update from

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.
