Lenovo V110-15IKB+8GB ram upgrade problem: won't boot

Q: Lenovo V110-15IKB+8GB ram upgrade problem: won't boot

A week ago, I bought Crucial 8GB DDR4-2400 SODIMM (CT8G4SFS824A & single ranked) as Crucial System Scanner suggested it is compatible with my brand new Lenovo V110-15IKB. Its OS is Windows 10. I have inserted this ram part into my laptop and it works well. 12GB appears under Device specifications at About (its 4GB is non-removable). However, when I shut it down and next day, it won't boot. Just black screen, CapsLk light is on (normally it turns off before Lenovo logo appears) and not responding. I have removed ram part and laptop booted with original 4GB ram. I reinserted 8GB part back and it booted. But it's still same, it won't boot second time unless 8GB part is removed and reinserted. I've looked for solutions across the internet but none worked (most of them are for home-built PCs) including safe mode resetting (supposed there to be troubleshooting but this laptop didn't have done troubleshooting after resetting and yet it won't boot second time). Also, I got BIOS/UEFI driver upgrade from Lenovo but it's still same. Though I have no idea how to use UEFI. Sorry, I'm not much technological person. I'm baffled with this. I haven't seen similar problem as this. Why does laptop refuse to boot second time with 8GB installed? Is this 8GB ram defective? Should I use other 8GB part (dual ranked one)? What about 2666 one? I don't want to open my laptop repeatably as it would wear ram slot out. Any solutions? Thank you. By the way, I have posted this at Crucial forum but some reason, it got marked as spam. I'm upset and disappointed.

Hi.I am looking for a caddy to replace the DVD drive of my V110. Are there any recommendations or things to watch out?I'd like to replace it with a SSD so that I can install OSX on the SSD and Win10 or Linux on the HDD. Once I bought such a caddy for my old Lenovo G560 but it froze right with BIOS startup.

A:Which caddy (HDD/SSD/DVD) for Lenovo V110-15IKB

I saw a smilar problem in Lenovo Z510. In order to solve the problem, caddy was removed and BIOS was restored to factory settings. After these changes, caddy with HDD could be installed again. AFAIK, there's no official caddy for your laptop. In Poland we have caddys from Zeta, which are quite good. I can't say what caddys are available in your country.

OS: Win10 Home This laptop is new today. I have installed Firefox and have been configuring the start menu. As far as I am aware I have not done anything that would cause the only the boot menu to appear on power-on. Seeing that the power is on is very difficult. The screen goes from black to a back-lit black. Then the Boot meny appears where every option returns to the boot menu. The Novo button gives the start menu. Selecting Normal Startup gives the Boot Menu.

Hi All, Purchased this laptop for my daughter for Christmas new from ebuyer. She went to use it yesterday and it wont boot.With the power plugged in the orange power light flashes say every 1 second.The caps lock flashes about every 5 seconds. The screen flashes very very quicky/briefly as though it wants to boot at a similar time to the caps flashing.With the power cabel out it does the same but the orange power light flashes slower say every 5 seconds. Im very confident in taking it apart if needs be to reset anything etc as long as this doesnt void the warranty which i still have but would like to get it fixed sooner rather than later. Any suggestions? Thanking you in advance. David

In all modern laptops the CPU and GPU are soldered to the motherboard. It's called BGA socket. And to upgrade them you have to replace the whole motherboard with new CPU and GPU soldered to it.

suddenly my laptop got hang and stuck on boot menu, i choose every choice but got looping again and again, and cant get on to windows. pls help me, what should i do and sorry for my broken english

A:lenovo v110-14ast stuck on boot menu

What exactly do you mean by "stuck on the boot menu"? Do you mean this specific menu? That is supposed to only show upon pressing the button to choose the boot medium. Maybe the Windows installation is damaged. You could try to reset it by pressing the NOVO button and selecting the reset option. That gets the Windows boot menu and allows you to reset it to its factory state.

Hi,  I'm currently running BIOS 2TCN32WW.  The machine seems to be having some issues with recovering from sleep/standby.  Very irritiating.  I'm hoping that a BIOS update might fix it.  However, running the BIOS update package through Vantage or via the downloaded file doesn't work.  Everything runs okay to the point where it is supposed to start flashing then the screen goes blank and nothing happens.  I've left it like that overnight and no change in the morning - so time isn't the problem.  Turning it off with the power button and on again and it comes to life.   Any ideas on how to get the BIOS update to run please?  Wish Lenovo would provide a version you can run from USB...  Thanks

Hello to everyone,Some months ago I have changed the internal HDD for an SSD (Drevo x1 pro) and put the old HDD in place of the DVD reader with an adapter. I have installed windows 10 on the ssd and used the HDD for storing file, programs etc and everything has worked fine. Some days ago I have to format everything and reinstalled windows 10 on the ssd but now the bios recognize the ssd as disk 2 and the HDD as disk 1 and I can't change this. (but the SSD is plugged in the mobo as disk1) if I install windows on the SSD the HDD don't let the sistem boot, if I remove the HDD the system boot. If I boot into windows and then plug the HDD windows dont' recognize it. If i remove the partition from the HDD windows boot from the SSD, if I initialize the HDD and create a new partition the problem reappears.THE POINT IS: I can no longer use one SSD with windows installed and an HDD for data...because now it mess up everything.Maybe the problem could be related to a bug of the BIOS? (the last update is from july 2019, and this is the version I have now, when I have installed the SSD the version was the previous). where I can find a link for the previous version of the bios? Someone could please help me?Thank you in advice Bye!
