Question about IBM ThinkCentre A50p PC Desktop

1 Answer

Ethernet, Multimedia, Video Controller is not recognized

I just upgrade my operating system of IBM ThinkCentre A50P but the Device Manager doesn't recognize other device such as ethernet controller, multimedia, and video controller.
As the result my PC cannot connected with other computer over the Local Area Network (LAN).
Should I re-install the driver for those controller? Where I can get it?
Thank you.

IBM has the worst site I have seen so far for driver downloads. I have posted a link for you to go to IBM. You'll have to go through the downloads & find what you need. Like Lan drivers, audio drivers, video & so forth. You may find a restore CD download. You do not want to install the restore CD. Just pull the drivers off of it. http://www.ibm.com/search/?v=14&en=utf&lang=en&cc=us&hpp=10&catx=Y1zkzPz66zazbAzNA&q=ThinkCentre+A50p&cp=top&lv=c&cat=P9&x=10&y=10
Good luck, this will take some time but should also work for you!

I have an IBM Desktop Thinkcentre A50p F5U Computer. I would like to add a secondary hard drive to it. Is there an additional bay for this secondary hard drive to be installed in?


Probably. I am not familiar with this particular edition of the ThinkCentre (judging by the spelling, you are not in North America.)

Here are some considerations for you ...
  • Is there a USB port available? Get a external drive up to two terabytes for your external storage.
  • If it must be inside is it SATA or IDE - Your drive will have to be the appropriate type to work with your computer
  • you can get PCI adapters that will support a IDE drive on a SATA motherboard and the opposite is true.
My recommendation is the external. Has its own power supply ... is portable ... you don't have to fool around with your computer innards. You can cause damage internally unless you are familiar with computer upgrades. It will install and configure itself.

Thanks for your question and please come again.

My Device Driver list is showing a problem with the Ethernet Controller and SM Bus Controller. I believe this is the reason my Wifi PCI card is not being recognized. Please help


Go here to the ibm website, and from under "download types", get the appropriate drivers for your chipset and wifi card, install them, then reboot your system.

IBM M51 ThinkCentre doesn t recognize 4gig installed memory


You can confirm this in the BIOS and i'm sure it will show 4GIG. Your Operating system maybe a 32 BIT OS, hence it will only show about 3... GIG. It's a limitation for a 32 BIT OS.
