Preferred Solution: Lenovo ideapad 320S 14IKB BIOS update failed

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 320S-14IKB (Model: 80X400G5IN) with 1 TB HDD. The HDD is slow. I want to upgrade to an SSD. Can the HDD be upgraded in this model (or) does it have an extra slot for HDD + SSD memory? Will Lenovo support/service be able to help me upgrade it?

Hi,I have recently bought a 320s which came with a 128GB M.2 SSD. Now, I have installed a Samsung Evo 250GB SSD in the SATA interface and figured I'd use the stock 128GB for storage. For less confusion, I removed the 128GB, inserted the 250GB, installed Windows 10, and refitted the 128GB afterwards.  The Windows 10 installation works fine. However, I can't see the 128GB disk - it doesn't show in BIOS or Disk Management in Windows.  Is the 320s not capable of running SATA and M.2 disks at the same time, or is this a BIOS / software misconfiguration? I have installed the latest BIOS update, Intel Storage drivers and so on.Thanks for any input!

When going in to BIOS the Boot Mode is greyed out and locked to UEFI. I've updated to the latest BIOS but alas still no option to change. Am I missing something or have Lenovo locked it out (which would be VERY iritating!). I've disabled secure boot, disabled fast boot and disabled the OS support but still no legacy boot. I want to boot from a USB stick but its just not showing up. I've tried the Novi button but all I get is the Window boot loader. Any ideas?

My laptop freezes regularly (a couple of times a day). The freezes are completely random and not dependent on any installed software (according to my testing). When the computer freezes I have to hold the power button to shut it down - no other functions are responsive. I ran a hardware scan and nothing showed up. The BIOS and all drivers are up-to-date. I installed CoreTemp and monitored the temperature at the time of freezes and the computer did not seem to be overheating. I have sent it in to Lenovo twice already for repair. The first time they said they found a defective component on the mainboard and replaced it. But in doing so, they disconnected all I/O ports on the right hand side of the computer and didn't test it before returning it to me. The second repair was to reconnect the stuff they disconnected. However, now the freezes are reoccurring and I would like to know if anyone has a solution to this that works before I send it back to Lenovo for a third "repair". This problem is very difficult to reproduce as it's random and so it will be hard for Lenovo to fix it and I have little faith in them to do so.

Hi all, Firstly am new to the forum and have tried to search for my issue and not been able to find an answer.  Today I wanted to do a complete reset of my laptop. I restarted my laptop, whilst holding shift to bring up the reset options. I opted for a completed reset and deletetion of all files. Once done I was greeted by the log on page but the only user was 'other user'. So with no way to log on I went onto safemode to create another user which didn't work. I also tried removing other user and enabling admin, which didn't work. I've tried the repair image option on the reset page and it says admin not enabled.  Any advice would be more than welcome. Thanks in advance.  Will

My lenovo ideapad 320s do not wake up after sleep. When the device goes into sleep I can hear it is on but the screen do not light up, I have to manually power it down by holding the power key for some time. It all started after I updated the display drivers from lenovo vantage app. I have applied every possible fix but to no avail. The keyboard and mice driver settings do not have power management tab so the widely used fix can't be used. I am using WIndows 10 fall creaters update, all the drivers are latest. Please help.
