Q: What kind of SD card controller is in a Lenovo IdeaPad 120S-11AIP? SDHC or SDXC compatible?

Nowhere in the documentation, web site is any info about what kind of controller and hence what size SD cards this model is supporting.Even Lenovo tech support doesn't know that info!I am really hesitant to buy a SDXC card of +32GB only to find out it supports on SDHC cards, thus limited to 32GB... thanks for any useful info, Ralf

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 ITWorxLA,

Welcome to the Community Forums.

As per system overview :
IO port: Memory card slot (SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC)

Platform specification:
One microSD Card slot, supports up to 2TB

Usually there would be stickers on the box or laptop to indicate the format it also supports.
You can try to find/borrow a spare 32GB SDXC to test first before purchase.

Hope this helps answer your query.

Regards

I see that the new high speed SDXC & SDHC cards that are using UHS-1 will be in exFAT format.
Will my Win7Pro32 using NTFS format recognize these?
Are there new drivers I need to download for my card reader to see these?
I have nor purchased one of these new cards yet for my new HD camcorder, so would like to know before I do the big spend on one of these high speed cards.

Hi and welcome to SF!
Yes, Windows 7 recognizes these formats natively, but I recommend that it be with the SP1 installed. As to whether your card reader will be able to read them, I'd say no - taking into account the age of your Dell. But if you can tell the model of card reader, I could tell with more certainty. Use Speccy - Download in case of not knowing what type of card reader. I look forward for your reply.

I plan to purchase a CANON S5IS digital camera, and someone recommended that I use SDHC memory cards. I recently bought a Digital Concepts 21-in-1 Card Reader/Writer; however, I don't see the SDHC designation shown on the package. The only SD cards listed are: SD; SD-Ultra; SDC; and Mini SD. Will this reader read an SDHC card as well? Thank you.

Hey guys,  I have the Lenovo Ideapad 520 (80YL00RXIN) and wanted to replace the CD Drive with the Samsung 850 Evo 250GB Solid State Drive  in order to increase the Boot Speed and over-all speed of the laptop.  So, the question is, Is the Samsung 850 Evo SSD compatible with my laptop? And will it fit in terms of size, in place of the CD Drive? Also, is it recommended to add the SSD? Any downsides to doing so?  Lastly, will I, someone who knows the basics about computers and the internal components of a computer, be able to install the SSD myself? Or would I rather outsource it to someone who deals in things like this? Thank you. Regards,Neel.

Yesterday afternoon I purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad Z575 for $499.00 from this link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834246328

Obviously, it hasn't come in the mail yet. I'm looking to upgrade the RAM in the laptop. It comes with 6gb of RAM, a 4gb stick and a 2gb stick. The problem is, I don't really know what kind of RAM is in the computer. I'm looking to replace the 2gb stick with a second 4gb stick.

The type of RAM the laptop uses is pc3-10600 1333mhz ddr3, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin so-dimm socket RAM.

My question is whether or not this RAM is compatible with the laptop: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-Extreme-MV-3T4G3-US/dp/B00591ZYX8

Also, if there is a better option for RAM for this laptop, I'd like to know.
 

A:Solved: Is this RAM compatible with my Lenovo IdeaPad Z575?

Honestly, I think I may have mental problems. It looks like I answered my own question in this post. That RAM is compatible with my laptop. So I guess I'd just like to know if this RAM is the best option for this particular laptop.

Hi, I have a new Ideapad 120S that I really enjoy using.  However after only a few months use it won't accept Windows 10 Upgrade. I've put very little on this machine, probably no more than maybe 500 MB of files and installed programs.  There are no movies, no downloaded music, none of that. System cleanup has been done and Recycle Bin is empty.  It keeps telling me I need to delete 8 GB of data. Say whaaaat??  I show about 2 GB free right now. It's obvious that there is space being taken up, probably by a system file, perhaps hidden. I saw a number of posts online complaining about a large file associated with an upgrade taking up valuable space on this small 32GB drive.  So, what do I do?  I like the computer.  I understand the necessity of maintaining updates to the operating system. But something is really amiss here where such a new computer won't allow O/S updates.  What's the secret to opening up the drive space?  I don't want to return it because of this.  Thanks! Ken

so yesterday afternoon, I was watching a youtube video and realized that the spacebar was no longer functioning as a play/pause button. I then realized that none of the other keys were working other than the power button. I followed the troubleshooting steps here. I did the last step, which seemed to work for a short time, yet when I went to youtube again and used the touchpad to forward the video, the keyboard stopped working again. I went to do step 3 again, but this time, it would continuously enter one letter. I shut down my laptop 3 times, and the same thing happened all 3 times. finally, I let the battery drain and powered it on this morning. the keyboard can no longer be fixed by use of step 3. I am using the on-screen keyboard now which is very time-consuming and which has been working throughout this entire process.

Sorry for the cross-post but thought it best to post a new topic to be specific.Following on from this topic... Are there any 120S variants that have eMMC and the M.2 port? Unless some variant shipped without the M.2 connector, I would suggest all of them have it. From the manual, even the 120S-11IAP with HDD variant still looks like it has the M.2 port - not that you can use it (the battery appears to interfere). In fact, if all variants ship with the M.2 connector, then the only variant that cannot use the M.2 port would be the 120S-11IAP with HDD, yes..?!?! The units without a HDD appear to have an "L" shaped battery pack that occupies the HDD location exposing the M.2 slot.Can anyone confirm whether the 81A5008SAU variant sold in Australia has the M.2 connector and "L" shaped battery pack...?
