Q: Ideapad 310-15ISK RAM Upgrade, screw stiff (wont turn).

The screw for my RAM cover is stuck and wont turn... Also is there 1 slot in this system or two, because somewhere it says there are two slots one with a soldered 4GB stick in it, and an empty slot... other sources say there is only one slot...

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 was using my Laptop as usual plugged in to the charger and all of a sudden my screen went black and laptop turned off. I tried pushing the power button and turn it back on but no luck. Even the power indicator LED doesn't light up when I plug in the charging cable. There's this weird "tick tick" sound coming from the charger when I plug it to the laptop. Any solution for this? Is this a issue with my motherboard or charger?

Hello, the cooling fans of my IdeaPad laptop turn on and off very frequently (even if the laptop is almost idle - let's say when I'm just viewing a page in Chrome without performing any activity like clicking or typing). They usually run for about 30 secs or so and after that they turn off and no noise from anything is audible. But after another 30 secs they turn on again and that cycle repeats all the time. I did a search on the net and found a potential solution to the problem here. But after updating the power settings as suggested nothing changed (I restarted the machine). On the other hand, I didn't find any options about that in BIOS. Is there any way to control the cooling fans, because it's kind of bothering to hear them turn on and off all the time?

I currently own and use a "Y700 Touch-15ISK Laptop (ideapad)" . It is only around 6 months old, and I've run into my first major error. Issue : I closed the screen on my computer overnight, when I re-opened my computer in the morning, I restarted my computer, and now it won't turn back on. Details about the issue : When I try and turn my computer on, the power button lights up and my keyboard lights up for like 5 seconds, but the screen does nothing but stay black. After those 5 seconds, my keyboard doesn't light up anymore, but I still hear the computer fans running.  **PLEASE HELP**

Hello Community,perhaps someone can help me with my problem. I have the above mentioned Notebook. It has a 256 GB Nvme PCIe SSD at the M.2 port. Currently I'm considering to upgrade (resp. replace) this SSD with a 512 GB SSD (I'm thinking about the Samsung 970 EVO). But before I buy it I want to be completely sure that this is possible. I'm mainly not sure because I don't know if the M.2 port has a PCIe x4 or x2 connection and if the SSD would run on a PCIe x2 port. Further I'm not sure if it is generally possible to run a 512GB SSD on that notebook. For the first question I have been searching through the Internet the whole evening but did not find any reliable results. Perhaps someone can help me with that. Many Thanks and kind regards,Daniel

The upgrade (from a Toshiba 1TB HD) to a Samsung 840 EVO 128 GB SSD made quite a difference in the read/write performance:  The most difficult part was the keyboard. I used a thin metal nail file to lift the top right corner and then I ran a credit card around the perimiter to remove the keyboard. You also have to watch how to disconnect and reconnect that keyboard cable as it is not all that obvious. Anyway, I think were looking at a 5x R/W transfer speed improvement with the SSD. Cheers newlaptop

Hey guys!! So yeah, I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y700 15ISK laptop. It's a really cool laptop! And it's a monster in gaming! Also, it's new. I had it with me for about 2 months now. I have no negative comments about this laptop. This laptop was my dream laptop. I always take care of it and made sure it is in top condition.  But you see, One day, like 3-4 days ago (sunday), when I got home I turned on my laptop to update my excel table for my expenses, it was bout 90%. After that, I took a nap leaving my laptop still turned on. When I woke up, I saw it was 10% percent. Of course, like any normal person would do, I plugged in the charger.

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
