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.

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?

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

HiIm looking to upgrade and i have read manuals (two of them provided slightly different information) and also some general questions that i would like an answer from someone who is familiar with this particular model. First, i want to upgrade RAM and all i know is that there is DDR4 4GB(different from what manual says). from CPU-Z testCPU-Z also shows that NB frequency of current RAM is around 2700MHz and DRAM frequency is 1064MHzFrom manual i find out:Type and speed: DDR3L-1333 MHz/1600MHz max supported capacity: 16GB Slots: SO-DIMM x2 What i do not know is what type of RAM shall i schoose/machine supports. I guess since CPU-Z pulls real info from PC then i shall schoose DDR4 for free slotBut there is 2133MHz and 2400MHz memorys available, which one is best for this laptop?  Second question is about HDD, current one is 1TB HDD and also i have available extra bay for 7mm HDD only where usually is cd-drive.I want to take out HDD and replace it with SSD and put HDD into extra bay, will this model be able to manage two drives simultaneously, SSD as main one with OS and HDD for extra files?As i understood i need to replace HDD with SSD and make a clean OS install(already prepared USB installation media) and after everything is done and booted into windows then i will connect HDD into extra bay but should i prepare HDD somehow or it is simple as plug in and go?Is there anything else i need to concider as im planning to do all this by myself...

A:Options to upgrade IdeaPad 700 battery?

Hi Lazy,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
As per the datasheet, your laptop comes with 4 Cell 60 WHr. The IdeaPad Y700 (Y700-15ISK) has 5 hours of battery life. This laptop has great battery life by gaming laptop standards. However, do not expect it to last a good portion of the day without having to be plugged in.The laptop is compactible to replace battery if it Lenovo battery from 4 cell to 6 cell.
 
Let us know how you get on.

Shashi

I was wondering if anyone has upgraded or swapped out their hdd for a solid state drive on the Ideapad 305 15IBD? My specific model number is 80NJ00F5UK, I have been able to find an mSata ssd drive which says its compatible with the 305 IBD, but not the exact model number above.  To be honest Im pretty happy with the performance of the 1TB hdd that i have but just want to confirm whether its possible or not to swap out for an ssd if I wanted to in the future.  The main reason would be to squeeze a bit more battery life, as its one area where the laptop is a bit weak. mSata SSDhttps://www.ipc-computer.eu/notebook-spareparts/lenovo/300-serie/ideapad-305-15ibd-80nj005j/hdd-12
