Graphics Cards for ThinkCentre M81

2017-01-28, 7:40 AM

I have a ThinkCentre M81 Desktop.  I have updated the power supply one capable of supplying 500W.  I have updated to the latest version of the BIOS.  However, I have tried two different graphics cards and neither one will "display".  The current Graphics card that I am attempting to install is a Radeon R7 240 from Gigabyte.  The machine powers on and the graphics card fan powers up, but no display...

 

Any thoughts?

Solved! See the solution

There are many threads here on newer generation AMD cards being not backward compatible with older ThinkCentres.  

 

This thread, although for a different system type, applies to yours:  M90p-SFF-graphics-cards-will-1050-Ti-work
