Integrated Graphics not working on E31 Thinkstation...

2019-05-16, 19:58 PM

Hi Lenovo Community,

 

I have an E31 Thinkstation here (Model no. 255547U) and I can't get the onboard graphics to work. It originally had a PCI-E Quadro 600 video card. I want to use the PCI-E slot for an M.2 NVMe SSD. I have went into the BIOS and changed the graphics from PEG to Auto and/or IGD and the onboard graphics still don't work (neither VGA nor Displayport). I did a BIOS update and reset and onboard graphics still will not work.

 

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Jay

What CPU is installed in your E31 workstation?

It's an Intel Xeon E3-1230 v2 3.3 GHz.

The Intel Xeon E3-1230v2 CPU does not have integrated graphics support, therefore, you won't be able to get the onboard graphics to work. You'll need to upgrade to a CPU that supports integrated graphics such as an Intel Xeon E3-1225 v2 or Intel Xeon E3-1235 v2.

Thanks for letting me know. I still find it EXTREMELY bizarre that they would still have a VGA and displayport on the system board.

 

Is there a possibility we could use a compatible LGA1155 i5 or i7 processor in this?

I'm showing the following I7 and I5 CPU's that are compatible with the E31 ThinkStation:

i7-2600
i5-2500
i5-2400

These all should have integrated graphics support.
