M.2 SSD Upgrade Ideapad 700

Q: M.2 SSD Upgrade Ideapad 700

Hello , First of all I am sorry about my English if I have made some mistakes. I am a user of Lenovo Ideapad 700-15ISK. I would like to buy additional M.2 SSD for M.2 Slot. I will continue to using my HDD. I have researched on Lenovo Community and some other forums about which type of M.2 SSD's are competible with my notebook . Mostly people who has this model of notebook prefer Samsung 850-950-951-960 evo series. However I would like to buy Crucial MX300 275 Gb M.2 SSD because of cheap and more memory. This SSD is competible for my notebook ? Is there anybody who use this SSD on Ideapad 700 ? If anybody can help me about this question , I would be happy .. Thanks...

A:Ideapad Z500 Memory upgrade + Storag upgrade (questions)

Hi bruce90matrix,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Similar to discussions here and here:
 
Product specifications: 
16GB max7 ; PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3*, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets
 
OEM recommended HDD capacity is 1TB as offered here on the FRU list of the hardware manual (page 26 here). 
Resellers like crucial would offer 2 TB so it would be best to check returns options just in case.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

A:Possible to upgrade CPU in Ideapad 100?

No, it's not possible to replace CPU in your laptop. Last laptops with repleacable CPUs (socketed) were in Haswell generation. You have laptop from newer - Broadwell generation. Moreover i5-6600K is a Skylake PC's CPU. FYI there are laptops specially designed to support PC's replaceable CPUs - sadly, can't say more about them - you'll need to look for them yourself. And they are really pricey.

I loved the size and price point of the Lenovo Ideapad 100S. However, of course because it only came with 30GB of hard drive space, Windows 10 basically maxed it out immediately. So, tonight I just tried to do something about it. I purchased a Samsung M.2 SSD 256 GB. I have a screenshot and I really think I installed it right. I just can't figure out how to get the bios to recognize it. Disk management doesn't show it at all. I rebooted into bios and reset defaults and restarted to no avail. What did I do wrong here? Is it just that the Ideapad can't recognize this particular M.2 SSD? Please see the screenshot I have attached. Any suggestions on how to get the bios to recognize this? Thank you ever so much for any suggestions! -Tom Tobey - Fort Wayne, USA

Hello Community,perhaps someone can help me with my problem. I have the above mentioned Notebook. It has a 256 GB Nvme PCIe SSD at the M.2 port. Currently I'm considering to upgrade (resp. replace) this SSD with a 512 GB SSD (I'm thinking about the Samsung 970 EVO). But before I buy it I want to be completely sure that this is possible. I'm mainly not sure because I don't know if the M.2 port has a PCIe x4 or x2 connection and if the SSD would run on a PCIe x2 port. Further I'm not sure if it is generally possible to run a 512GB SSD on that notebook. For the first question I have been searching through the Internet the whole evening but did not find any reliable results. Perhaps someone can help me with that. Many Thanks and kind regards,Daniel

HiI bought a new Ideapad 510 and immediately installed another SSD with more GB's and all my data on it.  From the moment I started the laptop the fan was extremely loud regardless of CPU usage. When I start up my laptop it's very silent up until the moment I enter my password and the OS starts booting. From that moment onwards it's ridiculously loud. It will sporadically go softer but once I then launch any application it goes loud again. I don't think that it's a manufacturing issue (but that's just my instinct) but rather some problem with the calibration between the fan and my own SSD rather than the stock SSD (if that makes any sense) Can anyone help me out because I need it?
