I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi Robinburn,

Welcome to the Community Forums.

As per specifications, you can upgrade the RAM :
16GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets

The graphic chip however is not upgradable since it is soldered on the motherboard.

Looking at the minimum specs of PUBG:
OS: 64-bit Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10Processor: Intel Core i3-4340 / AMD FX-6300Memory: 6 GB RAMGraphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB / AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GBDirectX: Version 11Network: Broadband Internet connectionStorage: 30 GB available space

It would be best to invest on a gaming laptop or better yet a desktop to enjoy the game.

Hope this help answer your query.

Regards

Hey folks, Got an M93 with Win 10. Lenovo solution center asks to do upgrades on BIOS and a bunch of drivers. Did that, and now I can't boot the computer.  Tried pressing F1 after pressing start button, no help. Can't enter BIOS, still stuck at lenovo screen. Also tried Ctrl+Alt+Del on that screen, blacks out then stuck at lenovo screen again.  Please help and inform, thanks!!! James

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

Hi Heron1337,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Your G50-80 can support more than current 4GB up to maximum of 16GB.
Adding similar 4GB PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, on the two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets would allow you to have dual-channel capabilities for faster rate interaction. 
 
Similar discussion here that you can review. 
Hardware manual here on page 41 for the steps.
 
Hope this help answer your query.

Hello, I bought this laptop a year and 2 months ago and have set my sites on spending money on a capable gaming desktop setup. Recently, I have given it some thought to upgrading my current laptop to enhance my gaming experience. I was wondering, is it worth putting money into my current laptop or save up for my desktop. I don't plan on buying the desktop until a couple years (2-4 years to be exact) from now.

I was wondering if I could upgrade my H50-50 intel core i5-4460,8gb ram and GTX 745 with the new GTX 1050ti?I'm not sure because the 1050ti is a dual slot card.Nvidia says that the recommended power supply is a 300w,which I have on this PC.

A:Could i upgrade my Lenovo H50-50 with the new GTX ...

It would probably have to be a short (mini) version of the card like the one linked below, in order to fit in the case, but the mini will definitely fit.         Your system probably just has a 280w PSU, but if Nvidia says a 300w PSU is all that is needed, you can probably get away with the stock 280w PSU.     You can also upgrade the PSU if needed, but you would need a 24pin to 14pin power adapter to adapt the standard PSU to the Lenovo motherboard. EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GAMING, 04G-P4-6251-KR, 4GB GDDR5, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC)http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487290&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC&cm_mmc=KN... The videos below are by a kid in the UK who upgraded a H50-50 with a different GPU and also a new PSU, but he does a very good job of showing what needs to be done to do so.    UPGRADING MY LENOVO H50 PSU/GPU 500W+GTX750TI (part 1)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BScjAJ7YuWM UPGRADING MY LENOVO H50 (GTX750TI+ 500W PSU) BETTER QUALITY (part 2)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2PU-Uitz0Y Good Luck,

You can refer to Z50-70 hardware maintenance manual for tested brand, basically the max RAM supported is 2x8 GB PC3-12800 (DDR3-1600) and to enable dual channel, be sure to use the same brand and chipset for both modules or just get a sold "matched-pair" or 16GB-2x8GB bundled modules.

Hi Alex_Bond, 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
It would be helpful if you have the specific machine number from the sticker or to check the MTM machine model type here on the parts look up page.
 
As per specifications from the hardware manual page 26-28:
RAM: DDR3L, 1066MT/s,1333MT/s
Standard memory: DDR3L, SODIMM × 1 / SODIMM × 2 (max 8 GB / 16 GB) 
 
Product specification for G50 models:
N2830 / N3530 models: 8GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket, system automatically clocks down for 1333MHz DDR3 memory controller
Other models: 16GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets 
 
Recommended RAM listed on FRU on item 12 page 80 of the hardware manual.
Those are OEM certified RAM that you can order as Micron DDR3L (low voltage) 1600 may also work as it matches base specification as Part number 11201304, MT16KTF1G64HZ listed among the FRU.

hi mislam13,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If you have the G50-45 (Beema) then an 8Gb upgrade will be ok as this system comes with 2 SODIMM slots and the max memory can be up to 16GB DDR3L.(1.35v).
 
Lenovo G40/50 AMD Specs
 
In addition, your system is likely configured with 4GB+2GB so you just have to change the 2GB with a 4GB to pump it up to 8GB (you can verify this by looking under the hood).

I recently purchased a Lenovo H30-05 but have now realised the Power Supply is not enough to support the NVIDIA GeForce 750 Ti (this would have been obvious if I had checked and found out  it was 65w before purchasing but, long story, I didn't). 
 
I'm wondering if it is possible to add an internal PSU which would cope (e.g. 300W+) as there is no 20-pin connector on the Motherboard? I see the 4-pin connector and obviously the socket where the power lead connects on the back but just wondered if a regular ATX PSU would suffice if I connect the 4-pin to the Motherboard?

Hello Friends,

I upgraded my Lenovo Ideapad Z 570 to Windows 8 a couple of days back. But the new OS is a pain. it has slowed down my system substantially and also some reference memory......terminated kind of errors are also displayed frequently. may b this is coz i did not do any BIOS upgrade before switching to Win 8. Was i supposed to? Tried calling the customer support and they asked me to contact microsoft about the problem.

Whatever..what i want now is to go back to my previous win 7 and would appreciate if you people would guide me. i saw a discussion on the same topic in the forum for an acer pc, so would be glad if you help me out as well.

I have never run any backup or anything. data is not much important anyway.just some movies etc.

A:How to downgrade lenovo pc to Win 7 after upgrade to Win 8??

Hello ankitkr and welcome to Seven Forums.

Couple of questions. When you upgraded did you do a clean install (format the entire hard drive), clean install (format only the C: partition containing windows 7), or something else like dual boot? Do you know if your Lenovo still has a hidden recovery partition containing the original Windows 7 and other factory installed software? A screenshot of your Disk Management would be helpful to see how your hard drive is configured and what you have to work with.

My Lenovo workstation W541 came with a 256GB Samsung SSD, and taking a look at Disk Management in windows, I discovered there are three partitions which are SYSTEM-DRV,  WINDOWS7_OS(C),  Lenovo_Recovery (Q) and Hibernation Partition .  I want to upgrade the workstation with a Samsung 500GB SSD which I bought from Amazon recently; but my question is How do I clone the current SSD with all the partitions unto the new 500GB samsung SSD ? ?

Hi klagu,
 
Greetings.
 
Similar to this discussion, recommended WLAN upgrade as listed from the hardware manual FRU (item12 page 91).
 
OEM recommended parts for upgrade:
Part number 20200552 WirelessLan_Intel, Intel 7260 2x2AC+BT PCIE M.2  WLAN V2 
Part number 20200418 WirelessLan_Intel, Intel 3160 1x1AC+BT PCIE NGFF WLAN
 
One of the following, con? gurable by model: ? 11b/g/n, 1x1, Wi-Fi + Bluetooth combo adapter, M.2 Card? 11ac, 1x1, Wi-Fi + BT combo adapter, M.2 Card? 11ac, 2x2, Wi-Fi + BT combo adapter, support WIDI, M.2 Card? Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160, 1x1, Wi-Fi + BT combo adapter, M.2 Card, support WIDI
 
Checking the specification of INTEL® DUAL BAND WIRELESS-AC 7260  and Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 both would be for an M.2 WLAN 2230 form factor slot intended for the Y50-70 boards.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

I recently upgraded the RAM from 8gb to 16gb (2x8gb from kingston). To my dismay, Lenovo has proven that I have instead downgraded since my RAM mghz dropped from 1600 to 700, a more than 50% decrease in speed. Since Lenovo has decided I am not tech savvy enough to use the BIOS and has partnered with Insyde to lock us users out of our own product, I am wondering if Lenovo customer/IT support has any idea how to fix this issue. To be clear, the issue is that I am unable to access the BIOS which is what you would normally use to access the hardware in your system. Due to "upgrading" my RAM size, I have inadvertently downgraded my RAM speed. A solution would be nice, since Lenovo believes its clientele to be stupid and locks its clients out of the BIOS.

So long ago my sister brought a Lenovo Yoga 2 11 without thinking if it was good for gaming and now it's just sitting there collecting dust. I want to bring it back to life by upgrading her laptop: Intel Pentium n3540 -> Intel Core i7-6700HQ500TB hard drive -> WD Black 1TB 2.5 inch4 GB ram -> 16 GB ramI want to know if it is possible to upgrade the laptop. I know the intel intergated graphics are installed based on the proccessor. If not can it still be okay for gaming (EX: Roblox (Yes I know), Minecraft, Gmod, and Left 4 dead 2).

Hi Everyone I'm new here and new to upgrades on my G50-45 and have a question I need help with. My G50-45 is equipped with an AMD A8 processor, R5 graphics, 500gb hard drive and 6gb of Samsung Ram memory stock and running Windows 10 Home 64bit. I would like to upgrade my Ram memory to the G Skill Ripjaws DDR3L 1600hz but the Cas Latency is 9 and would like to know if my system will accept a Latency that low let alone actually run the Ripjaws Ramsey? I know this computer is a couple years old but it had hardly been used until recently and is it like new condition, but it is pretty sluggish running CyberLink Power Director 13 for 1080p video editing and was hoping that if I upgrade the ram it will perform better and not push me in the direction of buying a new computer that I don't really have the money to spend on. I was also thinking of upgrading to a Seagate Firecuda 1-2TB SSHD because it is faster than an HDD and much cheaper than an SSD at the same storage size. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time and help.
