Lenovo H50-50 upgrade questions

Q: Lenovo H50-50 upgrade questions

Hi, So I've got a lenovo H50-50 with an integrated Intel HD 4400 Graphics card installed.... It doesn't run a lot of higher-end games very well at all... So I'm curious as to what freedoms I have to upgrade the graphics card to something that can better handle games (as in, what's compaatable?) I'm not very knowledgable when it comes to computer hardware beyond "graphics card does graphics(etc.)", and that integrated cards aren't really a gread choice for gaming, so if you randombly just blurt out a name of some hardware company model/its stats I might get confused... Thank you for your time.

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.)

I have a Lenovo Ideapad 320 15IAP 80xr I am planning to upgrade it to a 500GB SSD and while I am in there I thought why not upgrade the ram. Is the ram upgradable, if so what kind of ram does it take and does it take 1 or 2?

I am generally a Mac user, but wanted a PC to run a few apps I can't run on my Mac, and didn't want to partition my drive and use Boot Camp (I'd done this previously, and chose not to do it this time). A few days ago I purchased a Lenovo 110-15ISK laptop, model number 80UD0017US. I had been looking at an HP laptop, but read that it was not so user friendly when upgrading the RAM and hard drive, and passed on that one (for that specific reason), and saw this Lenovo in the local Best Buy on sale. I usually check things out pretty throughly before I purchase, but I have to admit, I didn't on this purchase. Although the laptop is nice, I was not pleased to find out that you pretty much have to disassemble half of the computer to be able to access the memory and hard drive. Not exactly what I was hoping for. Anyway, I've decided to leave the hard drive as is, since it's a 1TB (although I prefer SSD and upgraded my MacBook Pro to an SSD on day 1 and love it!). However, I definitely want to upgrade the RAM from 4GB. I was a little horrified to find out that the 4GB is soldered onto the motherboard, and that there's only one available slot for RAM. I've read up a bit on it, on both this forum and through Google and Bing searches, and it seems there are differing opinions on how much RAM this model can accept and still be stable. Some say it can take as much as a 16GB DDR4 stick bringing the memory up to 20GB, and some say that the max is a 4GB stick, bringing the RAM u... Read more

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.

I would try resetting the BIOS using the jumper, or by taking out the CMOS battery, wait a minute or two, and then replace it and try booting up. See page 73 of the Hardware Maintenance Manaul linked below for location of the Clear CMOS/Recovery jumper (# 20) https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/thinkcentre_pdf/m83m93p_hmm.pdf Clearing the CMOS (BIOS)1. Remove all media from the drives and turn off all attached devices and the computer. Then, disconnect all power cords from electrical outlets and disconnect all cables that are connected to the computer. 2. Remove the computer cover. 3. Locate the Clear CMOS /Recovery jumper on the system board. 4. Move the jumper from the standard position (pin 1 and pin 2) to the maintenance position (pin 2 and pin 3). 5. Reinstall the computer cover and connect the power cord. 6. Turn on the computer and leave it on for approximately 10 seconds. Then, turn off the computer by holding the power switch for approximately five seconds. 7. Repeat step 1 through step 2. 8. Move the Clear CMOS /Recovery jumper back to the standard position (pin 1 and pin 2). 9. Reinstall the computer cover and connect the power cord. Good Luck,

Essentially I'm trying to figure out the best way to get to *cough*legal*cough* Ultimate, or at least Professional if that gets too expensive. I soooo do not trust what I'm running right now, but I wanted to try it out-- And I love 7. I do own a copy of both XP MCE SP2, and Vista.

Could I ever get a clean install from purchasing this "Anytime Upgrade" deal? I keep reading it's just a download- but of what? A disc image? Or just an installer? Or just some sort of key generator to "unlock higher versions" (as one person speculated)?

Or must I buy an "Upgrade Version?"

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

A:Lenovo Yoga 900 Few Questions

Hi Hisayuki , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Higher resolution is not a significant threat to power as compared to lower resolution on normal usage as full LCD panel is still lit . Higher pixelated displays type needs higher power (HD vs. FHD vs. QHD). In gaming setting higher video setting would requuire more power to be used by the video card . Dimming the brightness would lessen power draw. 
 
About the browsers , features offered by Edge would lead most test and others may claim otherwise but may also depend fairly on the user and the websites visited. Limiting number of open browsers sure would lessen processes therefore less power consumption. 
 
Adjusting to lower resolution manually to what suits your vision can help as other simply use applications to automatically do it . 
 
Hope this help answer your query.

Hello. I have a couple of questions regarding the one key. My laptop came with windows 8.1 installed, and all drivers installed - to make sure, I updated all drivers through Lenovo's website and my graphic card driver through nvidia's website. 1. Nothing happens when I press the recovery button, while my computer is on - is this normal? Should'nt it pop up with some options to restore or something? At least it should open the One Key app up, right? When I press it when the computer is off, it boots up with a BIOS screen with multiple options - just like I thought it would, so I guess that's working fine. 2. I made a One key backup through the One Key app, I saved it on my SSD drive since thats the only drive I have currently, though my SSD is 256 GB large, I also have a small D: drive called "LENOVO" which contains drivers etc, but it's only 25 GB big - I read somewhere that this drive was ment for one key's backup, but my current backup is filling 50 GB twice the D: drive capacity - is there anyway I can make it smaller, or should I just get rid of the D: drive? In that case, how? My One Key app is Version 8.1.0.2619 Thank you for your time, and have a nice day! Cheers - Simon

A:One key/Recovery key questions - Lenovo Y50

When you are logged into Windows, pressing ONE KEY will do nothing.
To boot into Recovery there are options in the Control Panel or the Charms Menu. or as you did shutdown and press the NOVO button.
 
The D: contains drivers for Lenovo, it is NOT the recovery partition. The Recovery partitions are hidden and can only be seen in Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Disk Management
 
To make best use of One Key, you should create a USB recovery disk/drive.
It is not a system backup but it is a recovery disk and should fit in a USB of 16GB.

I have a problem. I have Conexant Smart Audio HD and Dolby Digital Home. Problem is that Dolby works with only one application at time, often getting stuck to one.  I heard tat Dolby Home Theater v4 works better, however I cannot find it for Conexant audio.  Besides I wanted to ask. 1. I wanted to upgrade my Z50 to 16GB of RAM. Question is, what kind of RAM you guys would put into it? I am upgrading only because I want to play more applications at the same time (and Forza 6 Apex is kinda memory hungry too )2. Is 70 degrees celsius during heavy gaming actually normal? I want to know since Laptop feels a bit hot when gaming, but I got used to it, just don't know if it's safe.

Hello, I currently own a T440P  (machine type 20AN) and my HDD is failing.  I want to replace the HDD with a SSD and had a few questions about the process (my apologies in advance, I'm not the most tech savvy user).  They are:1) What size is the HDD?  Normally, it's written on the outside of the media device, but I can't seem to find it on the drive.2) What size devices can the machine fit?  That is, can it fit a 7mm?  Or a 9mm?3) Is it possible to just replace the HDD with a SATA SSD?  Do I need any special tools, adapters, etc. to do so?4) If the old HDD has failed, is it still possible to access the recovery partition?  If I cannot, how/where can I access the drivers and Windows that were preloaded on my machine? 5) Where can I obtain a copy of my Windows product key in case I need it at some point?6) When I purchased my machine, I elected for Windows 7 via downgrade rights in Windows 8.  Is it possible to still stick to a W7 installation?  How do I elect this option when reinstalling windows? Thank you kindly for your assistance.

Hi everybody, ever since a friend showed me the Lenovo Yoga Book online I've been in love with the device. I'm a big note taker and writer, and I think this could be perfect for me. However, I live abroad in a country where they don't sell the Lenovo Yoga Book. I'm soon going for a short visit to the Netherlands where I can finally see (and most likely buy) it, but I have a couple of questions that I can't seem to figure out from searching online (and I will not have enough time in the Netherlands to keep going to the shop ).  I am interested in buying the Android version. First of all, because I am buying it as a tablet and not a laptop; second because of the 100 euros price difference (yes, welcome to Europe...) and third because of the ability to take notes in tablet mode with the screen off. However, I struggle to find out how to digitalize handwriting notes and I read contradicting statements on this.  From handwriting to textAs I understood, you can't digitalize (meaning change handwriting into text) with the app that Lenovo installed (Note Saver). Is that correct? If that is the case, I am looking for a programme that can do this. Does it exist for Android? I've been looking into OneNote. Is it possible to write using OneNote and then convert the handwriting to text? Or do you know of any other apps?

The screen will go black for about 1 second andthe laptop's fans will slow down for just a moment before the game resumes and the fans go back up.This will happen pretty much any time the temps hit 90C again. I have a Notepal U3 laptop cooler with 1 fan on each GPU intake slot and 1 on the center of the laptop.I have also repasted the CPU & BOTH GPUs with Arctic Cooling Silver 5.I have modded the bottom case of my laptop to allow more air into the laptop.The BIOS is also modified (so are the GPU BIOSes) To stop the crashing I tried upping the voltage on both cards by 012.5mV - 025.0mV.

Hey guys, I have purchased the Lenovo T460p and I am thinking of returning it due to a number of issues. I have not yet received it. It is in the final stages of manufacturing.  1. One of the first reviews of the T460p has reported:'A bigger problem is the temperatures of the processor: Even with CPU load-only by Cinebench, it reaches almost 90 C (~194 F) and even up to 93 C (~199 F) in Prime95, which results in a slight clock reduction from 3.1 to 2.9 GHz. In this case, the temperature will level off at around 90 C (~194 F). When we also stress the graphics card as well as the CPU with the tools FurMark and Prime95, we can also see the effect of the TDP limitation at 35 watts. The latter has to suffice for the processor and the graphics card. The full performance is only available during the first 30 seconds, when the chip can consume 45 watts, before the limitation at 35 watts sets in. The temperature climbs to 95 C (~203 F) in this short period. The processor levels off at 2.7 GHz, while the graphics card runs at 900 MHz.'Source: http://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-ThinkPad-T460p-Notebook-Review.160923.0.htmlMy question is has anyone benchmarked this laptop and found a similar result. 2. One of Lenovo Support partners on this forum has reported he is able to use a Transcend 128 GB M.2 2242 SATA SSD in the optional WWAN slot. Has anyone confirmed that this type of storage chip is supported in the T460p (market ready model). &nbs... Read more

A:Concerns and Questions About Lenovo's T460p (2016)

I purchased a T460p earlier this month and I can say that I'm very happy with it (apart from a small issue with the trackpad, which should be solvable through a driver update though). I run Windows 10 Home on it and have a virtual machine running Ubuntu for my development work. I haven't put it through heavy computing loads yet but using it normally doesn't heat up the CPU a lot, and the fan is surprisingly silent as well. Compared to my T430 the palm rest doesn't heat up very much at all. Concerning the GPU it doesn't seem to impact CPU much, I tested the 3D performance by playing Crysis 2, which runs smoothly at 1280 resolution without overheating the system. I use a Transcend 512 GB SSD in the WWAN slot, which works like a charm. The battery performance is as advertised, when in energy-saving mode the power consumption can go down to 7-8 W, which gives you about 6.5 hours with the 45 Wh battery and 10 hours with the 71 Wh model. Personally I'd recommend choosing the 71 Wh battery, as you get an additional 35 % capacity for just 16 ? and the weight is almost identical to the 45 Wh model (and the form factor is also identical). The model 0C52862 batteries (e.g. for T440 20B6, 20B7; T440s 20AQ, 20AR; X240) are compatible with the T460p btw and available cheaply online, so no need to buy an "original" T460p battery, which are offered for much higher prices it seems.

Hello Deslothen
 
Thank you for using the Lenovo forum 
 
Most Desktops are open to configuration there is three main things you will need to keep in mind.
 
1 is that is the part you would like to upgrade compatible with your unit, most of the time you can find the right information from the hardware manual.
 
2 upgrading parts can void warranty if something is damaged.
 
3 upgrading a gpu will need more power then what the psu already in your unit can produce, this means you will most likely need to upgrade your psu aswell.
 
 
Hope this help you and let us know how you get onDid someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo! If you find a post helpful and it answers your question, please mark it as an "Accepted Solution"!
 
This will help the rest of the Community with similar issues identify the verified solution and benefit from it.

Hello all.

I want to upgrade my computer for tax returns. Here's my current specs:

Antec 900 case (original version) w/ Seasonic 620W Modular PSU
AM3+ socket Asus M5A99X Evo motherboard ($150 mobo)
AMD Athlon II X2 3.0ghz Regor
4GB G. Skill dual channel memory (2x2gb)
XFX Radeon HD 5770
500GB Caviar HD

I want to buy this CPU:
Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT55TFBGRBOX

1) I think i'll be happy with this, but since I already have an am3+ motherboard, should I just go with an am3+ cpu. is it worth it (including the extra cost)?

2) I need a heatsink and stuff so I can overclock. What's a good one? I don't want stock. I do plan on overclocking.

What video card should I buy to *MAX OUT* Battlefield 3 with good FPS (over 30) at 1080p?

Once we figure these couple of things out I can decide what else to upgrade. But right now these are my two concerns and I don't know how much either will cost.

Thanks for the help all.

I installed a Crucial MX100 256 GB SSD along side my 1TB mechanical HD, moved the OS to the SSD and kept data on the hard drive, etc. It's all working quite well, but I have a couple of questions:

1. When I did the shrink on the hard drive partition I set it to 240 GB (240x1024 = 245,760,000). I intentionally made it a little smaller than the SSD's 256 GB (256 GB/1024 = 250,000,000) to make sure it would fit. I thought I'd be able to extend the size afterward on the SSD, but neither the Windows 7 Disk Manager nor EaseUS Partition Master see any extra room at the end of the partition. I did include the 100MB system partition at the front end but there should have been a few GB leftover - just curious

2. My motherboard only supports SATA 2. I've read that the benefit of an SSD is mostly the very fast access time, but I'm wondering if there would be some small additional benefit from installing a PCIe SATA 3 card? My mobo supports PCIe 2.0 and the BIOS has a boot from add-in card option.

do you have a video card to use with this? if not i would look at getting one. you will not really want to use the on board video. i would suggest that you go with a mid tower for better air flow. 500 watt psu should be fine.

I'm trying to get familiar with how this forum is set up. I have spent the most time over on CNET which has been simple. Anyway, regarding 10 OS; We have 3 computers;all WIN 7 consists of 2 laptops. My question on changes; I use my one laptop hooked up to the t v with HDMI cable. I have used it for playing movies which would affect me with media player. I have noted one person using VLC and I have also heard of GOM player. My question is if I upgrade or when I will have to replace the laptop with a 10. will HDMI streaming still work the same? I use streaming more than using media player for running movies. So that means I go to youtube. The volume quit working so I just use the add on speakers I use hooked into the laptop. Everyone knows laptop speakers aren't very good for volume so I created a workable situation by just relying on the extra speakers hooked into the laptop rather than the volume on the t v itself when I am streaming from the computer to the t v. The speakers I have for the laptop really have better quality sound than the t v.

A:Upgrade questions

If the system is connected via an HDMI cable and your PC will support Windows 10 drivers, it should all still work without an issue.

Hi. I'm currently running Win 7 Build 7100.

I plan on purchasing Home Premium. My computer was originally running Vista Basic. I did a clean install of the beta (no partition, Vista is gone). Can I purchase the upgrade copy or do I need to purchase the copy for new computers? Will I need to put Vista Basic back on my computer if I want to use an upgrade copy? If I can upgrade directly from the beta, is it best to do a clean install? I'm a little confused as to how this process is going to work.

Thanks!

A:Upgrade questions

You may not get a clear answer on this until the upgrade versions are on the street. Microsoft has not, as far as I know, published a complete list of requirements.

The safest assumption is you will have to re-install Vista, and activate it, before you can proceed with an upgrade license of Win7.

If you haven't deleted windows.old, you can restore the old OS from it:

How to restore a Windows 7-based computer to a previous Windows installation by using the Windows.old folder

It may be possible to upgrade from the RC (I suppose you mean that, as the Beta has expired). It would require making a modified version of the install DVD that changes version checking.

So the computer I built a year and a half ago (running a bootleged copy of XP SP 2 I got from a friend :-\) got some horrible virus.

I have decided that now would be a good time to (legally) upgrade to vista. My questions and concerns are as follows:

I think I've narrowed it down to Vista Home Premium with SP1, but should I get OEM or retail? What is the difference between the 2? After a little time looking it up, I couldn't come to any real conclusions about the benefits of either one.

Upgrade vs Full? What do I need to have in order to just get the upgrade?

32 bit vs. 64 bit? I have the processor for it, but from what i've read, the 64-bit vista seems like a pain...

And for more of a final question, would I be able to install this version of vista?

I am upgrading the ram on my mother's laptop from 2Gb to 4GB (Corsair). Currently the OS is Vista x86 HP. I know I must upgrade the OS to x64 to make full use of the new ram, but the question is whether Vista or 7. If it was mine, I would say 7, but it isn't. I have Technet so getting a license is not a problem.

She requests the following: Windows Mail and Office 2003 (she really hates the Office 2007 ribbon). She seems resistant to use Outlook or Windows Live Mail. So, if I can get the two above applications to work on 7, I'll do it, otherwise, I'll put Vista back.

I know that there is a tutorial for installing Windows Mail on 7, but does WM really work on 7? No bugs.

And I do not know for sure if Office 2003 is compatible with 7. I'll check this soon.

I am asking for opinions on how I should proceed.

The Laptop: HP Pavilion dv9650us

A:Upgrade Questions

Well the CPU does support 64 bit instruction, even though the frequency on it is a bit low. If ever choosing between the two I would go with win7.

...I'm a formerly jilted vista user though, so take that with a grain of salt I suppose.
Might not hurt to check on driver availability to help in the choice too.

Q.4)Asus card mentions it is factory overclocked how much difference in performance does that make?

A:A few questions for GPU upgrade

1. Yes, it should be fine
2. Depends on what the price difference is
3. There's no difference except the warranty period, I wouldn't pay a premium for a "better" brand
4. Don't get a factory overclocked card unless it's the same price as a stock one, you can easily overclock the stock cards yourself.
