Make sure that the Graphic card is correctly mounted into the correct PCI express slot. And if this thing is perfect then there might be the chances that the BIOS are not working properly so upgrade the firmware and if possible then set the video selection to PC. And donít try to run dual Videos with the help of the Single Video card.

If you have upgraded your OS from lower version to the higher version then maybe this will also one of the reason for this issue. May be the latest OS doesnít support the driver, so upgrade the driver for this video card. Or the alternate thing you can do is to make use of pci video card may be it worked with no problem.

There may be chances that your graphic card was not install properly or may be the connection between the cabinet and PCI Socket. So make the reinstallation of your Graphic cards to overcome this issue. Because even I was also facing the same issue but however I just make the reinstallation of the Graphic card and this issue is no more.

I recently bought a Nvidia Geforce GT520 for my IBM Thinkcentre S51 and had the same problem. After talking for 30 minutes on the phone to lenovo they said "The card port can only handle PCIe x1 even though there is enough room for a x16 card." Just buy a PCIe x1 GPU. PCWorld was happy to give me a refund on my GT 520.
