How can I install a PCIe video card to the riser on an IBM Thinkcentre A-52 computer?


John,

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/guides-and-manuals/default.page?

In the list under the bold red Guides and Manuals subheading,
click on Hardware maintenance manuals.

Click on the blue -> [+] Click for files

Now click on the blue -> Hardware Maintenance Manual
(Above - 41d4550.pdf / 8.53MB )

This is a PDF file. May take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

At the top of the PDF file is the PDF file page number box. It is to the right of the Down Arrow.
If you know the page you want you can go to it page, by page, using the Down Arrow, or you can do this;

1) Put your mouse cursor in the PDF file page number box.
Left-click once.
(Anything in page number box is now highlighted in Blue)

2) Type the page number.
3) Press the Enter key.

Also at the top is the Zoom In icon, ( + ), and the Zoom Out icon,
( - ).
Clicking on the Zoom In icon increases the view size.
Clicking on the Zoom Out icon decreases the view size.

Go to Page 263.

The Riser Card, or 'Daughter Card', is supposed to have
ONE -> PCI-Express x16 slot.
(Riser card is pointed out by the number 12 )

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-60400

Scroll the page down. Look under the bold subheading - Slots

"Slot 1: full length, x16 (16 Lane) PCI Express (graphics only)"

However it also states,

"Slot 2: half-length, x1 (1 Lane) PCI Express
Slot 3: half-length, PCI
Slot 4: half-length, PCI"

Hmmmm, okay, let's look at the 'Daughter Card',

http://www.ebay.com/itm/IBM-Thinkcentre-S51-A52-PCI-PCI-e-x1-Riser-Card-/300562298930

Scroll the page down to the bottom to the photo.

The long white expansion slot on top is a PCI slot,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCI_Slots_Digon3.JPG

The black 'slot' underneath, is a combo of PCI-Express type expansion slots.

Looking at the contact pins;
A PCI-Express x1 expansion card, would fit in the slot all the way to the right, in the photo.

See the details printed in-between the white PCI slot, and the black slot underneath?

"PCIe x1 - ADD2 - R SLOT"

PCI Express x1 card - Add to the Right Slot

Means to me the entire slot, is used for a PCI-Express x16 graphics card.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCIExpress.jpg

The top Yellow slot is an example of a PCI-Express x4 slot.
Next slot down is an example of a PCI-Express x16 slot.
Next slot down is a PCI-Express x1 slot.
Next slot down is a PCI-Express x16 slot.
The last example is a PCI slot.

[Note* Color does not matter of the slots ]

From my perspective of looking at the photo for the Riser Card, I see the PCI-Express x16 slot, (Black), as being too wide in the middle.

Do not see that the gold plated contact pins of the PCI-Express graphics card, will make good contact with the contact pins, in that Black slot.

Haven't worked on a 'Pizza-Box' style of desktop computer in YEARS, so I am kinda' out of the loop.

IF, a PCI-Express graphics card does indeed make good contact, I suggest using a Low Profile one.

Just one example,

Why does the pipe from engine to air filter housing deteriorate and break


The "heat riser pipe" goes through heating & cooling cycles hundreds of times a year causing expansion & contraction leading to deterioration.

Hi, I have a IBM ThinkCentre M52 and i am wanting to put a graphics card in it but i am unsure where in the machine to put it?


leathalsnipe, a graphics card will plug into an available PCI slot on the Daughter Board.

IF, a PCI expansion slot IS available.

The Daughter Board is an adapter board that plugs into the Motherboard.
It's also referred to as a PCI Riser Assembly.

The Daughter Board, or PCI Riser Assembly plugs into the Riser Slot on the motherboard.
You may have an Ethernet Adapter Card plugged into one of the PCI slots on the PCI Riser Assembly right now.

To avoid confusion download the Hardware replacement guide, so I can show you what I'm referring to;


This is the download page for the Hardware replacement guide, for your ThinkCentre M52 8215 Desktop PC,

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?subcategoryind=0&familyind=241562&brandind=11&doccategoryind=0&modelind=0&doctypeind=8&validate=true&partnumberind=0&sitestyle=lenovo&template=%2Fproductpage%2Flandingpages%2FproductPageLandingPage.vm&operatingsystemind=49980&machineind=241623

On this page click on the blue >

Hardware replacement guide - ThinkCentre A52 (type 8155, 8156, 8157, 8158, 8159, 8160) / M52 (type 8099, 8116, 8215, 9210, 9211) {2006-09-20}

This is a PDF file. After you click on the above file name it will take a few seconds before you see the first page come up.
It will also take additional time to fully download the file.
Suggest you let the file download all the way before looking through it.

Go to Page 13. Scroll the page down a little. {Note* Page number in the page number box}

In the top header of the PDF file is a Page Number Box. It is to the Right of the blue Down Arrow.
You can use the blue Down Arrow to go page by page to get to the page you want, or you can use a faster method.

Put your mouse cursor in the page number box
Left-click once
Type the page number
Press the Enter key.

This shows you how to open the computer case cover.
(Computer unplugged from power. Observe Anti-Static Precautions)

Now go to Page 27.
Scroll the page down a little.
Number 2 shows the PCI Riser Assembly removed.

Remove the PCI Riser Assembly to install the graphics card, then reinstall the PCI Riser Assembly back into the Riser Slot on the motherboard.

The graphics card has to be a PCI graphics card.
It also has to be a Low Profile graphics card.
Low in height.
Also cannot be very long in Length.

This is one example of a Low Profile PCI graphics card that should fit inside the computer,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5692361&CatId=3670

Your Power Supply should have enough power for the above graphics card.

Another example,

I would like you to also download the Hardware Maintenance Manual (HMM) for the ThinkCentre M52 8215 desktop computer, (Same link as above)

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?subcategoryind=0&familyind=241562&brandind=11&doccategoryind=0&modelind=0&doctypeind=8&validate=true&partnumberind=0&sitestyle=lenovo&template=%2Fproductpage%2Flandingpages%2FproductPageLandingPage.vm&operatingsystemind=49980&machineind=241623

On this page click on the top file listed,

Hardware Maintenance Manual (HMM) (May 2009) - ThinkCentre A52/M52

On the next page go to the heading > File link, and click on the blue >
39j8289.pdf


This HMM will come in handy for you in the future. You can save a copy of this PDF file to your computer.
If you are not aware of how to do this, and wish to know how, please post in a Comment. (Upper right of your page - Comment)

You dont mention what you wish to use this motherboard for.

Asus vento 3600


Installation and assembly Now it was time to get to grips with the Asus Vento 3600 for real. We fished out a test motherboard and some drives and got to work installing the components into the ASUS case.
The side panel ships secured by a single screw which needs to be removed before you can use the side swivel handle to open the case. Once this was removed, turning the handle clockwise unlatches the side panel, allowing it to be pulled away. The swivel handle operates very smoothly and neatly, and adds immeasurably to the whole space-age feel of the case. The spacious interior allows plenty of room for all ATX motherboards. Thanks to the extra height of the case, the top two 5.25 inch external drive bays are above the plane of the motherboard, so even if you have a full size board, you can mount at least two CD drives without worrying about them interfering with the board.
The backplane of the case sports built-in risers for most ATX motherboards, though additional risers are included if your board needs more or different connections. Installing the motherboard was straightforward as we'd expected
One thing we noticed and appreciated at this point was the way that ASUS had rounded most of the steel edges inside the case. Having worked in computer stores, I appreciate any attempt to protect our tender hands from the pain of sharp steel 'case cuts'.
The expansion slot covers are secured by green plastic locking tabs which need to be levered open and removed from the case. The metal covers can then be easily removed and PCI, AGP or PCI Express cards installed. The tabs can then be returned to their places, locking the expansion cards in place.

REMOVING MEMORY


Make sure your new memory is compatible with your MB. Got to www.crucial.com and they have a download that will tell you exactly what to use. Static electricity kills. Get an anti-static strap. Make sure the new memory is inserted firmly and snaps in place securely.
