Question about Lenovo IBM ThinkCentre A30 8199 (8199XX2) PC Desktop
Go into the BIOS and disable the on-board video. With the system powered off, turn on the system and hit enter when it says "To interrupt normal startup, press Enter". Alternatively, press F1 on startup. Turn off the system if you get to the login screen and try again. Go through the BIOS menu to enable the AGP slot. (IIRC go to the line for Video and toggle On-board or AGP. My system is a A50p but it's been a while since I put in my video card.) Then exit the BIOS (save your changes) and shut down the system.
Do this step before adding the new card. Make sure that your power supply is sufficient to support the video card (and attach the power cable to the card). Make sure the card is fully seated in the slot.
If you continue to have a problem, go to the site and download the diagnostic program and see if you have a hardware issue with the slot or the card. http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?subcategoryind=0&familyind=121127&brandind=11&doccategoryind=0&modelind=0&doctypeind=9&validate=true&partnumberind=0&sitestyle=lenovo&template=%2Fproductpage%2Flandingpages%2FproductPageLandingPage.vm&operatingsystemind=49979&machineind=139045 under Diagnostics in the drop down menu.
I hope this helps.
