L440/L540 second ram slot

Q: L440/L540 second ram slot

So I got 2x8gb of RAM, my L440 came with 4. I took out the 4gb slot and put the first 8gb stick on there. My problem is that I can't put on the second RAM stick. The RAM pins dont slide in like the first one. I try to lightly push it in but It doesnt slide in the slot. Am I doing something wrong? Where exactly are the pins supposed to go?

Hello Mui, welcome to the community,

there are two slots, one on top of the other, on the L440. When inserting RAM you need to ensure that you initially position and insert the module at an angle of about 20° to the slot and then push it down into place. See p74 (pdf p80) of the Harware Maintenance Manual.

If needs require I'm sure you will loads of video tutorials on YouTube. And please don't forget to let us know how you got on.

Would anyone from Lenovo be able to give me the 'supplier part number' for an 8GB DRAM or DDR DIMM that works with this L440 Laptop - Type 20ASS06Y00 S/N R9****** ?
 
Moderator note: serial number removed to prevent abuse.  Split to separate topic.  Title changed to match subject

A:L440/L540 ram compatibility

03X6657 is the Lenovo part number.  That corresponds to several manufacturers' part numbers off various brands.
 
If you are buying non-Lenovo-branded RAM, you need DDR3L (1.35v) 1600 mHz SODIMM.  It might be described as PC3-12800.  Avoid RAM labeled Value Ram.  I always suggest checking return policy on RAM before buying.  Everybody has their favorite brands.  If I am buying RAM for myself, I like Corsair Vengeance.  I have never had a failure or a compatibility problem.

I have an L440 (20AS) that has an open expresscard slot at the bottom left corner. I am not using it for anything, and I don't plan to buy a 3G card in future. I want to use it for some other purpose, mainly storage. Is there any storage options available other than USB 3.0? Like expresscard to mSATA SSD or something like that, that will allow me to boot from the expresscard as I have an internal HDD. I have enough USB ports, so I dont want more, I don't need a TV tuner either. I know there is an internal M.2 slot that I can use for fast boot. So I am just trying to find something useful like external graphics card, may be.

I have a AMD 7870 Dual slot video card on my Asus M5A99X-Evo Motherboard. It is installed in the first 16x slot...and I also have a PCI-e 1x XF-I Titanium Sound card. The problem I am having is that one of the 1x slots is covered by the video card, and the 2nd one is open, but right smack below the Video card. My Video card is the Sapphire 7870 GHz Edition non OC.. Attached is a picture of what I am trying to explain. My other question is: Will this cause issues since one of the GPU fans is semi covered? Its it recommended? Last question: If I move this to one of the 8x slots below on my motherboard, will it cause my 16x PCI-E slot to slow down? Thanks ahead of time for any help you can provide.

Computer Specs -

Asus M5A99x-Evo Motherboard (AM3+)
AMD FX 8350 8 Core (4Ghz)
Sapphire AMD Radeon 7870 GHz Edition (2GB)
8GB DDR3 1600 Kingston HyperX memory (2x 4GB)
500GB WD Black Edtion SATA HD
1TB WD Black Edtion SATA HD
Sound Blaster XF-I Titanium PCI-E 1x Sound Card
Thremaltake 750 80+ Bronze PS (Smart Series)
DVDRW (SATA)
DVD-ROM (SATA)
 

A:Question about PCI-e slot below dual slot video card

My opinion ...

Yes, setting up like that will have an impact. The air flow to your GPU will be restricted so it will more than likely run hotter than it did. It may still stay withing recommended specs, but it will run hotter.

The motherboard has onboard sound (RealtekŪ ALC892 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC ), any particular reason why you don't use that? Onboard sound is perfectly good for gaming and the like now, its not like older machines where you needed a dedicated card for decent quality. In my opinion, you only need a dedicated card if you are doing a lot of detailed audio work (mixing, remastering and other specific audio work). This would totally remove the issue.

hi there,
i need to know which know which graphic card will fit for my computer. Ie i want to know which type: DDR ,DDR1 or ddr2 i bought my computer in 2007, but thats not enough to tell.
so please let me know how do i know which pci slot i have?
 

A:which graphic card slot do i require for my PCI slot

The type of memory doesn't matter, its the type of interface the computer supports among a few other things to watch for.

You likely have a PCI-Express slot, as long as it a x16 slot it doesn't really matter if its a version 1.1 or 2.0 slot.

Is this for your Dell or another computer? Whats you budget and what needs do you have for the video card?

That's known as integrated graphics, now do you have a PCI video card and an APG video card or an Integrated video card and an AGP card?

This is the strangest thing I've seen in the past 10 years of using computers. I have an Acer Aspire 7535-5020 laptop that came with windows 7, but I'm very picky and I wanted Windows xp back so I went onto Acer's website and downloaded all of the windows xp drivers and then formatted the laptop to Windows XP with intergrated Service Pack 3.

The computer works just fine except for one very strange oddity - the USB mouse I'm using only works when plugged into the first USB slot, it will refuse to work in the other 3 USB slots.

I'm using a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 USB which is my favorite mouse and I have 3 of them at home. When I was formatting the laptop, I had the mouse plugged into the first USB slot and now that is the ONLY slot it will work in. If I plug it into the other usb slots, the red laser will come on which means it's getting power, but it will not move the cursor and clicking either of the mouse buttons won't do anything.

When I have the Device Manager open, and I plug the Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 mouse into the first USB slot, the 'Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0' entry will appear in BOTH the 'Human Interface Devices' tab and also the 'Mice and other pointing devices' tab.

However, when plugging the mouse into the other 3 usb slots, the 'Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0' entry will only appear in the 'Human Interface Devices' but NOT the 'Mice and other pointing devices' tab.

Hi NukesGoBoom,

A:can I add a AGP slot or PCI slot to a comp that doesnt have one?

You can't add a slot to a motherboard.

How old is this computer that it doesn't have a PCI slot? Those have been around for quite a while. Are you sure it doesn't have one? Even AGP is not new technology.

EDIT: After seeing your other thread, are you asking if you can purchase an AGP or PCI video card? That's a totally different question, and the answer would be yes depending on which slot your motherboard has. How much it costs depends on what you plan to use the computer for. A simple one is cheap, and high-end gaming cards can get expensive.

Recently bought an old L540.Great machine in excellent condition. Original keyboard wasn't backlit, and the trackpad was the horrible one without the 3 buttons on top. I tried changing the keyboard (ebay one), and it works great.. Except the backlight.. Filing complaint to seller. However - the trackpad is what bothers me. I've installed win 10. The newest edition. 1803. The trackpad I bought is: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Trackpad-Touchpad-Three-Keys-Button-for-IBM-Lenovo-Thinkpad-L440-L540-L450-... The 3 buttons work.Pressing and dragging rarely works.Multitouch is not even an option. Like scrolling on the web using 2 or 3 fingers. I've searched everywhere for drivers for it. Newest ones, old ones, removing files, following guides. Jeez I worked hard. Still no solution. So my question stands:Have anyone had similar experience replacing the trackpad, and then making it work properly?The trackpad has a name: LEN2004 I'd love to name all the driver versions I've tried - but I exploded and decided to reinstall windows 10 completely, with the new trackpad installed as well. But once that's done, I will go through all the processes once more, in case no one has come up with some advice. I hope you can help me out - else I'll have to use the old original one. Regards Thomas

This seems to be a somewhat common question, but I have not seen a conclusive answer for this particular laptop model. While the L540 is a nice machine, the fan annoys me. My environment is very quiet, and the noise is always audible. It seems to be running 95% of the time, even at a low CPU load of less than 10%. What's particularly annoying is the fan's habit to go quiet for a minute or so, then suddenly give a big blow as if it woke up in a fit. I replaced the hard disk with an SSD, which makes the PC quieter and, I guess, also a bit cooler. Memory is not an issue - the PC has 10GB RAM and uses roughly half of it most of the time. There is no dust in the box, vents are not obstructed, and I use a laptop stand that ensures plenty of air around the body - much more air than if it were sitting flat on the desk.According to the Speedfan utility, temperatures are rarely above 50 degrees Celsius - not extremely low, but then not really high either. After all this background, my simple question is whether there is a way to control the fan in any way. While Speedfan does have a fan control feature, it doesn't "see" the L540's fan. I didn't find any fan controls in the UEFI.

Hello finally I got my L440 and made RAM upgrade to 16GB and I also want it to have an SSD. After reading all the manuals and forum messages I think that it have  a sutiable port for an mSATA SDD which will solve my problem in a great way without replacing anything.
 
My question is, my machine didn't come with an mSATA or WWAN option. While making the RAM upgrade I checked the ports and there is only one seems to be suitable for mSATA but since area is too small I couldn't be sure if it is the one. Can you please check the attachment and tell me if any mSATA will fit in that port? Or maybe it is not for mSATA and I should go with the traditional SSD solutions by replacing the disc?

Welcome to the forum!
 
According to the original specs you should use DDR3-12800 (1600) RAM source: link (click on the "Specifications" tab)
 
1866 RAM will probably work, but it will slow down to 1600 speeds. If I were you I would either play safe or make sure the vendor accepts returns in case it doesn't work.
 
Also avoid any "Value RAM" or "Value Select" modules, as well as any no-name brands.

I installed a ssd m2 of Transcend model 420s. The Thinkpad L540 got a success. The pictures I have taken below. However there is a problem with the m2 drive on the L540 which is its very high temperature cause I think because the m2 slot of the L540 is designed too close to the L540's CPU. This in the long run is very bad for the M2 SSD.

Hi Ms,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
We understand that your display is not working in your L440 laptop.
 
Issue might be with the LCD cable. Since the external display is working fine there is no issue with the motherboard.
 
Note: As per the Lenovo policy, the warranty will be void if the laptop is dismantled by yourself.
 
We would like you to visit the nearest authorised Lenovo service centre to purchase the power supply.

Hi, There seems to be some problem detected for my original 16GB M.2 SSD, so I want to replace it with a new one. I bought the following one, which should be compatible https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KBZH72I/ref=twister_B00KBZH7E6?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 My question is, after I get it, should I just remove the original one and install the new one? Is there any other thing I should to complete the replacement? The OS is on my HDD, but I don't plan to move it to the new SSD. In this case, do I just need to remove the old one and install the new one? The reason why I ask is that the manual says: "Ensure that you partition the M.2 solid-state drive after installing it on the computer you are servicing. Otherwise, the M.2 solid-state drive will not function correctly." Thanks a lot!

Hi All, I have Thinkpad 440 and want to upgrade to ram to 16 gb(8x2). But seeing the installed ram I am unable to understand which type of ram it is DDR3 or DDR3L.  After bit of googling, I came to know that installed ram is DDR3L.I am thinking of buying Kingston DDR3L 1600MHZ ram.  Please help me in choosing the compatible ram. Thanks in advance. Abhishek

A:RAM upgrade for L440

All Haswell laptops must use DDR3L.
 
Your posted RAM should work. The official memory description for the L440 is:
 
16GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets

I purchased an L540 with Windows 7 Professional pre-installed in 2014.  Currently I have version 6.1 (Build 7601 Service Pack 1), and am NOT having any technical issues.  However, my SquareTrade extended warranty expires soon (in October), and I have been wondering if I should upgrade to Windows 10 (probably along with the Classic Shell app).  Just browsing the forum, I see a number of posts that reflect various issues with upgrading to Windows 10, and can't really tell if those issues have been resolved by now.  I know that Microsoft plans to support Windows 7 Professional until January 2020, by which time by laptop will be 6 years old.  Any advice on whether it is worthwhile to upgrade and comments on the cost/difficulty of the process?

At first I thought the BIOS wasn't updating only for machines that were at versions 1.81 and 1.82 however now i'm seeing some machines that are upgrading from those versions without an issue. Seems to be happening with Windows 7 and 10. symptoms:Execute BIOS update via winuptp.exe or via command line winuptp.exe.Machine asks if i want to update the BIOS i select yes. It informs me the machine will reboot. Machine reboots however after the Lenovo screen I do not get the BIOS is flashing screen it just reboots to windows.  Troubleshooting preformed:- Full shut down of machine.- Updated all drivers via system update app - I have not tried using a bootable CD as I need to do most of these remotly.  below is the log from WINUPTP.log-------[2018/12/19 16:1:1]OS = Windows 7 32bitDriver Loading....DoneSystem BIOS Version -> J4ET81WWApplying BIOS Version -> J4ET93WWBIOS Flashing....BIOS Flash completed.[2018/12/20 10:45:19]OS = Windows 7 32bitDriver Loading....DoneSystem BIOS Version -> J4ET81WWApplying BIOS Version -> J4ET93WWBIOS Flashing....BIOS Flash completed.[2018/12/21 16:18:4]OS = Windows 7 32bitDriver Loading....DoneSystem BIOS Version -> J4ET81WWApplying BIOS Version -> J4ET93WWBIOS Flashing....BIOS Flash completed.------

I have a Lenovo L540 ThinkPad.  I thought it came with a webcam but the little cirlce at the top is covered with what looks like what would be at the front of a speaker or something.  does this mean there is no webcam built in?  It doesnt look like a lens and I cant find a "webcam" icon anymore in the control panel or desktop or anywhere else.  Thoughts?

Some of them do not have a camera installed, you should check the invoice or the label on the box for features included in the notebook you purchased.You can returned it to the store and get another one that has the features you wanted. Good luck.
