Preferred Solution: How should I upgrade Lenovo G470?

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.)

Hello, I have a Lenovo g470, and I was wondering if it would be possible to get an Ivy Bridge processor. The manual says the following ones are compatible: Intel I7-2620M 2.7G 4M 2c J1 PGA processor CPU.Intel I5-2540M 2.6G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor CPU.Intel I5-2520M 2.5G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor CPU.Intel I5-2410M 2.3G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor CPU.Intel I3-2310M 2.1G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor CPU. But as it Ivy Bridge are backwards compatible with SB, I wonder if I could get a 3ª processor and put in this mobo. If not, does it worth to change from i3 2310m to anyone of these above?? i5 2540m has 200mhz higher clock on gpu and i7 has more l3 cache(4MB), or should I just leave like this?? I appreciate any help. Thank you.  (Sorry for my bad english)

(I am only writing this because my parents refuse to listen to me and they want "Lenovo" to help me with this problem.)So I own a Lenovo G470 (Ideapad) that I bought in 2011. About 7 months ago, the laptop's hinges started to become lose and then since 4-5 months, bits and pieces of the laptop case keep falling apart/breaking around the hinges. It was a bit bothersome but nothing too serious.However, last week the laptop's screen became tilted (??) like one hinge/side is up and the other is down. It's almost diagonal. And the wire connecting to the laptop screen is exposed (i dont know how) maybe because the hinge's piece broke so the wire is exposed and it's almost on the verge of breaking too. (Ill be attaching the pics of the laptop below.)My warranty expired ages ago. But I dont mind paying for the repair. Is there a way if I contact a real Lenovo store nearby and ask them to "repair" my broken laptop. My parents would rather spend 80-140 dollars repairing this than buy me a new 700/800 dollar laptop.Honestly, if some of you wanna tell me that this laptop is beyond repair, believe me I know! My parents refuse to listen to me -_- So this is just to prove them Im right. FRONT:- https://imgur.com/4viSonH- https://imgur.com/D1pX3I0LEFT SIDE:- https://imgur.com/IKEdGI4- https://imgur.com/L6HmMPw- https://imgur.com/7qk0CMm- https://imgur.com/j5usW0nRIGHT SIDE:- https://imgur.com/wjONWoE- https://imgur.com/peerlHE- https://imgur.com/JU81ZrI- https://imgur.com/gvsWs5S- https...

A:My laptop's falling apart.. Lenovo G470

If you think you have a flat tire do you keep on going until the tire disintegrates and you destroy the rim? That's what you did to your own laptop.You should've taken action as soon as you noticed something is happening with the hinge.There's not much you can do right now to fix it. Only thing I'd advise is to find a broken one online with the body intact (at least when it comes to the bottom part and hinges). e.g. with a smashed screen and make a transplant. Have it done by a professional if you can't do it on your own.

I encountered the BSOD with the problem about atikmpag.sys It seems like I made a wrong choice about deleting it, (solution from internet searching)  and now the Display Adapters doesn't work anymore as you can see in the pictures  after deleting the atikmpag.sys during safe mode, It somehow resolved the problem about the BSOD and my laptop are finally starting properly now the problem is about the resolution, it's not the same anymore, it's too low and somehow the screen is blurry, as you can see at the Graphics section, the maximum resolution I can only choose is 1024 x 768, which is supposed to be 1366 x 768 (HD) if i'm not mistaken,   I need your help on how to fix this I hope i can turn it back to normal., I don't have a CD installer (if it is supposed to have one) to re-install it, and about downloading from other sites I'm a little bit concerned about that so I haven't tried it yet.. and it seems like Lenovo has its own installer... Pls help ASAP

A:Lenovo G470 atikmpag.sys problem

hi jm9327,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
The G470 with a dual GPU (Intel+AMD), uses a muxless driver (this is a custom driver that switches the discrete AMD Graphics to the Intel Graphics to save power). If you have installed a different driver, this may cause system instability (including BSOD).
 
If you're running on Windows 7, try the following::
 
1. Follow this guide on how to disable automatic driver installation.
2. Install these drivers in order (reboot if necessary)
   (1st)  - Intel Onboard Graphics Driver for Windows 7 (64-bit)
   (2nd)  - AMD Video Driver for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit)
 
When finished, check if the yellow exclamation marks are gone under Device Manager > Display Adapters and observe the screen resolution adjustment and BSOD occurrence.
 
 
Let me know how it goes.
 
Regards

Which version of Windows you have shouldn't affect how your battery is charged up so it's probably just coincidence.

You may be needing a new battery. Do you have anyone nearby who can check the battery for you?

After spending an inordinate amount of time searching the internet about my problem, and then contacting Lenovo (who told me it was hardware and I needed to return all of the laptops I bought), I managed to magically find the solution to my problem.  Since it wasn't documented elsewhere on the internet, I thought I'd create a post for it here. The problem I was having was that my Lenovo G470 laptop did not display Press F2 to Enter Setup during the boot process, and because of this, no amount of hammering the F2 button would allow access to the BIOS.  I attempted all of the standard fixes, pulled the battery, held power down for 30 seconds, removed the HDD -- nothing would cause this to appear.  Since it was happening on all 3 of the G470s we just purchased, I didn't believe it was hardware.  I reached out to Lenovo Premium Support, and after about 3 minutes of discussion, "Paul" informed me that all three machines were defective and would have to be sent back in for repair, and it would take 4-6 weeks for repair and diagnosis.   As I had been noodling around with the machines for a few days, ONE of the three ended up showing the bios options during the boot process.  At that point, I had been hitting just about every single key on the keyboard during the boot process, so I couldn't identify what it was that I did that caused the options to appear.  A little more troubleshooting and I figured it out: Lenovo G470 machines equip...

From what I understand  your notebook works fine when using English keyboard layout, but does not work as expected if you change to Spanish keyboard layout.
 
Check your BIOS for a language or region setting and adjust as needed.  Also - look in control panel for keyboard settings and install additional keboard layout for Spanish.
 
Good luck.

That BSOD stop code usually points to a problem with the Hard Drvie (HD) that is preventing it from booting.   If you have another computer running Windows 7, 8.1 or 10, you could Create a System Repair Disk that you can use to boot your laptop, and from the tools on the CD, run a chkdsk of the hard drive.   You can also use another computer to create download the Windows 10 install media directly from Microsoft, and use it to boot your system and attempt a repair, but if your HD is actually going bad, attempting any sort of repair may just make the chance of recovering your important data less likely. If you have data on the existing HD that you simply cannot bear losing, I would leave it off, and take the system to a good local computer shop and have them try to recover your data off the HD before attempting any sort of repair.    A good PC repair shop will be able remove the HD from your laptop, attach it to another computer, and attempt backing up your data off the old drive for you.    How to create a Windows System Repair DiscInsert a blank writable CD or DVD into your CD/DVD driveSelect  Start >> Run and type:  recdisc  and press enter.Select "Create Disk"Good Luck,

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
In term of the RAM upgrade based on your product specifications: 
16GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets 
So that you can maximize it (2 x 8GB) or simply get another similar 4 GB for 8GB sweet spot. 
 
Recommended OEM parts on FRU listing item 12 page 80 of the hardware manual.
 
WIth regards to the CPU upgrade is not posible as it is soldered on the systemboard as BGA (ball grid array) similar to i5-5200U.
 
Hope this help answer your query.

Hi Heron1337,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Your G50-80 can support more than current 4GB up to maximum of 16GB.
Adding similar 4GB PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, on the two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets would allow you to have dual-channel capabilities for faster rate interaction.

I recently purchased a Lenovo H30-05 but have now realised the Power Supply is not enough to support the NVIDIA GeForce 750 Ti (this would have been obvious if I had checked and found out  it was 65w before purchasing but, long story, I didn't). 
 
I'm wondering if it is possible to add an internal PSU which would cope (e.g. 300W+) as there is no 20-pin connector on the Motherboard? I see the 4-pin connector and obviously the socket where the power lead connects on the back but just wondered if a regular ATX PSU would suffice if I connect the 4-pin to the Motherboard?

Hi Robinburn,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As per specifications, you can upgrade the RAM :
16GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets 
 
The graphic chip however is not upgradable since it is soldered on the motherboard.
 
Looking at the minimum specs of PUBG:
OS: 64-bit Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10Processor: Intel Core i3-4340 / AMD FX-6300Memory: 6 GB RAMGraphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB / AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GBDirectX: Version 11Network: Broadband Internet connectionStorage: 30 GB available space
 
It would be best to invest on a gaming laptop or better yet a desktop to enjoy the game.
 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards

I have the Lenovo G50-45 model, with 6gb of DDR3 ram and 500gb HHD and AMD Radeon R5 GPU. I was wondering , since it comes with 6 GB of ram, can i upgrade that to 8 later on in the future if need be?

A:Lenovo g50-45 ram upgrade

hi mislam13,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If you have the G50-45 (Beema) then an 8Gb upgrade will be ok as this system comes with 2 SODIMM slots and the max memory can be up to 16GB DDR3L.(1.35v).
 
Lenovo G40/50 AMD Specs
 
In addition, your system is likely configured with 4GB+2GB so you just have to change the 2GB with a 4GB to pump it up to 8GB (you can verify this by looking under the hood).

Hello, I bought this laptop a year and 2 months ago and have set my sites on spending money on a capable gaming desktop setup. Recently, I have given it some thought to upgrading my current laptop to enhance my gaming experience. I was wondering, is it worth putting money into my current laptop or save up for my desktop. I don't plan on buying the desktop until a couple years (2-4 years to be exact) from now. I'm sure this question depends on my financial situation for the most part, but I just want to make sure my laptop specs are good enough and will last until I start working on getting a desktop. Specs:Graphics card - Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 / NVIDA GeForce GTX 960M (Why exactly do I have 2?)Processor - Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4720HQ CPU @2.6GHz8GB ramHard Drive - Model WDC WD10S21X-24R1BT0-SSHD-8GBThank you!

Hello Lenovo community. You are my last hope! I digged in the internet and searched through the whole Lenovo site, but I havent find the answer. I have Lenovo B50-80 i5-5200U with only 4GB RAM, type 80EW, serial number MP09TCNE. I'd like to upgrade RAM, but I can't find how much of it I can install. I've alrady determined that I need DDR 3 RAM, but how much? Once I've read that I can install up to 16GB, but then I found other opinion, that my computer can have only 8 GB. What is the thruth?

I was wondering if I could upgrade my H50-50 intel core i5-4460,8gb ram and GTX 745 with the new GTX 1050ti?I'm not sure because the 1050ti is a dual slot card.Nvidia says that the recommended power supply is a 300w,which I have on this PC.

A:Could i upgrade my Lenovo H50-50 with the new GTX ...

It would probably have to be a short (mini) version of the card like the one linked below, in order to fit in the case, but the mini will definitely fit.         Your system probably just has a 280w PSU, but if Nvidia says a 300w PSU is all that is needed, you can probably get away with the stock 280w PSU.     You can also upgrade the PSU if needed, but you would need a 24pin to 14pin power adapter to adapt the standard PSU to the Lenovo motherboard. EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GAMING, 04G-P4-6251-KR, 4GB GDDR5, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC)http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487290&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC&cm_mmc=KN... The videos below are by a kid in the UK who upgraded a H50-50 with a different GPU and also a new PSU, but he does a very good job of showing what needs to be done to do so.    UPGRADING MY LENOVO H50 PSU/GPU 500W+GTX750TI (part 1)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BScjAJ7YuWM UPGRADING MY LENOVO H50 (GTX750TI+ 500W PSU) BETTER QUALITY (part 2)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2PU-Uitz0Y Good Luck,
