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.)

Good day and welcome to the community.Please provide more information about your system (model, OS, recent updates, etc), otherwise it will be difficult for the community to assist you. We will also be able to confirm that your post is in the proper forum.

In general, there are very few laptops that ever offered the ability to upgrade the graphics system (MXM daughter card). On most systems with a discrete GPU, it is soldered to the system board.Regards.

A:IdeaPad Z710 graphics card upgrade options?

Good day and welcome to the community.While your machine does have discrete graphics, the dGPU is integrated (i.e. soldered) onto the system board. It is not a socketed chip or daughtercard. Very few laptops offered any kind of dGPU upgradeability.
 
Hope this helps to clarify.Regards.

A:IDEAPAD 510-15IKB 80SV009MHV RAM Upgrade

Hi metalralf,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Product specification shows :
12GB max / PC4-17000 2133MHz DDR4, 4GB memory soldered to systemboard, one 260-pin SO-DIMM socket. 
 
Seems both M471A1K43CB1-CRC and M471A1K43BB1-CRC specifications are compatible 8GB ram to replace your current 4GB stick. I personally would like you to read on product reviews and comments of buyers for each to consider aside from costing and and recent release. 
 
OEM recommended RAM are listed here for your model (click on memory under commodity for filtering) along with substitutes as another option. 
 
Let's have our fellow community members share their thoughts with our post here.
I hope this helps answer your query.

Hi DimonaChicK,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
You can share the machine number from the sticker (MTM ex. 80XL035SUS ) or to check it from here. This would allow us the check on the systemboard details.
 
In general, specifications (ram and storage available depends on the variants):
Some: SSD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm highSome: HDD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm highSome: M.2 SSD / PCIe 3.0, 8Gb/s (320-15IKB only)
 
Memory:
16GB max / 2133MHz DDR4, dual-channel capable, optional 4GB memory soldered to systemboard, one DDR4 SO-DIMM socket 
 
Here also is the hardware manual to get you information how to do changes on parts and specification of your machine. 81bg model are offered with m.2 SSD PCIe ssd option aside from the current 1TB HDD. Yours may have a a built in 4GB slot with one slot available with an upgradable 4GB ram to and 8GB memory stick.
 
I hope this helps answer your query
Update us with the MTM so we can check on the machine's details if needed.

Hi NtSG,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
The OEM certified ram are listed here in the hardware manual (Item 5 page 71).
You can also check using parts lookup with model number or MTM. On commodity type, filter it by checking on memory.
 
Regarding disabling the integrated GPU similar to this discussion, it was made as default by OEM so BIOS do not permit change to be made rather you can just assign an application to the MX150 instead. Other ended up with a black screen even on BIOS when they tried tweaking it so best to either stay with the OEM recommendation.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

A:Can you change the graphics card on an Ideapad Yoga 13?

Hey Jaalhu, Most of the laptops have gfx processors so you'd have to swap the proc. For example, Intel HD Graphics 520 or 620 in processor. You can always lookup your graphics properties by searching "msinfo" on your computer then expanding Components and select display. Hope this helps.
