Hi I have a supermicro x8sti Server Board inside


Basically you have two choices for installation of video card:
1. To purchase small form factor PCIe card suitable for installation on 1U server chasis or
2. Purchase PCI express riser card and to install most full-sized PCI Express cards (Check this link for PCI Riser )

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,

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}

On the next page click on the blue >

39j8231.pdf


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,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4842979&CatId=3669



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)

How do i replsce the sound card on dell dimension


The sound card is on the mother board, but you can buy a PCI sound card and install it in one of the empty whit slots on the mother board.
I am not sure but you may need to dissable the onboard sound before you install the add in replacement sound card.
You can ask dell support if you need to do this, www.support.dell@dell.com
Good luck. I hope this helps. Have a good day.

Which sound card i need to instal


Here is a link to a diagram of the Optiplex GX 270 system board: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx270/SM/EN/replbrd.htm

You need a sound card that has a PCI interface. On a Small Form-Factor board it goes into slot 10. On a Small Desktop system board it would install into the “riser board” which in turn is installed into slot 10. On a Small Mini-Tower system board the sound card would be installed into any available slot marked as 11.

Help me please


You put the sound card in the first slot that has a notch in it so it wont fit anywhere else. once physically installed, install the drivers from the CD.

The sound card should go in what is called the PCI slot which is the WHITE slots that you should have 2 or more of depending on the system board.

Install those drivers from CD as Well. Make sure to plug everything correctly.

Hope this helps as you problem isnt clear .
It didnt translate very well. \\

Good Luck
