Q: Lenovo S340-15IWL Model: 81N8001LUS

Hi Lenovo, I bought Lenovo S340-15IWL Model: 81N8001LUS (15.6") processor intel i5-8265U 1.6G. This has 8GB (4GB soldered+ 4GB installed RAM) and 256GB SSD installed. I am planning to increase the storage but I couldn't find any info for this model in specific. Lenovo support could you please let me know how many slots are avaiable for Hardisk? If yes, what kind HDD or SDD? max out capacity for storage? I guess RAM has 1 partition tht has 4GB(Can i swap this to 8GB) installed since 4GB is soldered and make it to 12GB? Thanks

I've searched through the forums and Lenovo's site and can't come up with a working solution for this new notebook:I have been able to boot a USB that has EFI, but for the life of me I cannot figure out a way to boot from an MBR/legacy USB.I've spent hours trying.  I have tried the steps at https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht076905namely, disabled OS Optimized defaults, then load defaults, but doesn't help - and I'm getting plenty frustrated.I cannot find anyway to get into the Lenovo setup utility (Rev 5.0) other than letting Win10 boot, then going to settings/recovery/advance options to boot into UEFI Bios.The Boot Mode always stays at UEFI, with USB Boot enabled, can only boot GPT/EFI USB sticks not MBR/Legacy. What am I doing wrong?

I have an ideapad S340-15IWL, the 81N8003SUS model to be exact. Core i5-8265U, 8 gigs RAM, 15.6" monitor and 256 GB SSD. Purchased via walmart.com, as the eact same model at Staples was sold out, as I purchased this at the start of september. I've had it the three months total. Last tuesday night in the middle of a programing assignment for a college class the screen went black (black as in no signal, as if somoene cut the connector) and the entire machine was unresponsive. Holing the power button or Novo button did nothing until this morning (thrusday morning) when the battery finally gave out and the machine was able to be rebooted. Tuesday via live chat a service rep said to leave it overnight and see if the battery drains. It lasted until last night sometime. yesterday (wednesday) I contacted lenovo support and they suggested it may be a hardware issue inside the machine and are sending out a box and opened up a ticket, as it' is under warranty being only three months old. The machine booted up this morning via holding the Novo button and booting normally. Is this a hardware issue? Is it known? Will it happen again? Should I send it back anyways? There's no way to open it up and disconnect the battery without voiding the warranty. I would like to feel relaitively safe this won't happen in the middle of an important assignment as all my classes are online based via Blackboard (or a new system the uni is switching to next semester)

I think that Lenovo only offers 12gb maximum.  But can the S340-15IWL (Intel) platform handle more than that.  4gb is soldered to the board and there is only one slotS340-15IWL Intel Platform

A:What is Maximum RAM for S340-15IWL (Intel) platform?

Hi g725s,
 
Greetings.
 
It is true that manufacturer max supported ram is 12 GB and having more is not offered or not been certified for the system. 
 
I was not able to find any confirmed case yet for placing a 16GB on the single slot but you may want to check with other resellers that may offer it with a good return option just in case. It sure is nice if a spare 16GB DDR4 ram can be checked on this model.

Hello! I have an Ideapad S340-15IWL with a 256gb ssd.I want to add another hard drive.Can I add another SSD or  can I only add an HDD? ( the platform specification sheet seems to infer that can only add HDD)Is there any instructions or videos on how I would physically add a hard drive to this exact model?I have found a hardware maintenance manual that explains how to remove parts but not how to add parts.Do I need any extra connectors or converters?Is there anything else I should know about picking out the hard drive besides what the platform specification sheet says? This is what the Platform Specifications says:Storage:  Up to 2 drives (one HDD and one M.2 SSD): ? HDD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high, 5400rpm ? M.2 2242 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 2, 16Gb/s ? M.2 2280 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 4, 32Gb/s ? M.2 SSD / SATA 6.0Gb/s (e.g. xxxGB SSD M.2 I can usually find this information, but I'm having trouble with this model.Thanks for any help!    

A:Hard Drive questions for Ideapad S340-15IWL!

Assuming hat your system currently has a M.2 SSD installed, you could add a 2.5" x 7mm SATA SSD as a storage drive, but the system only has one M.2 SSD slot available.     The HDD requires a bracket to secure it (FRU/part number: 5B40U61561). but I cannot find a source for that bracket online, so you may have to MacGyver a way to secure it.  The bracket is shown on page 43 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual and in the image belowClick on above image to expand Cheers,

Hi, The HDMI output of my new S340-15IWL touch works with the stock windows 10 Home installed on the stock 256GB M.2 NVMe SSD drive with BIOS disk control configured as RST mode. However, after installing a second SATA SSD with a windows 10 EDU OS, and changing BOIS disk control to ACHI mode to allow boot from the SATA SSD, the HDMI outpot stoped working anymore. I have updated the video driver to the lastest one posted on lenovo support website. but the HDMI still doesn't work. It looks like this HDMI problem comes after changing BIOS disk controller to ACHI mode. not sure it is due to the BIOS or the video driver. Can someone give some support? I have to get a seocnd output working for being able to project presentations. THanks

When I ran UserBenchmark on my new Lenovo to test if it works correctly, I got the notice that: "CPU throttled at 88% by Windows. Ensure maximum processor state is set to 100% via Settings > System > Power & sleep > Additional power settings > Change plan settings > Change advanced power settings > Processor power management > Maximum processor state. " https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/19397536 However, that setting is already at 100%. I reset the power plan settings to be sure, but it did not work: I ran the test two more times and each time the CPU throttled at exactly 88% again:https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/19397664https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/19397929 Now, obviously the Intel Core i5-8265U is still not a slow CPU but I think there is a bug somewhere. The laptop was connected to power in all benchmarks and is running the latest 2.04 BIOS.

But I think I've read somewhere that 24 GB would also be possible. Can anyone confirm this? And what about the warranty?

I'm not 100% sure but "Ram soldered" usually means that the ram module is directly soldered onto the motherboard. So RAM would not be upgradable at all.

On or in the metal hinge of my new lenovo yoga 730-15IWL laptop there are some white spot/marks. See attached photo with flash. I can't get them off with a cleaning cloth or rubbing with my finger. You can clearly see them when I put a direct light on it. Without a direct light shining on it it's harder to see. You can't feel the spots with your finger, the surface is just as smooth as the rest of the hinge. I noticed them as soon as I removed the plastic around the hinge. What is this?
