Which caddy (HDD/SSD/DVD) for Lenovo V110-15IKB

Q: Which caddy (HDD/SSD/DVD) for Lenovo V110-15IKB

Hi.I am looking for a caddy to replace the DVD drive of my V110. Are there any recommendations or things to watch out?I'd like to replace it with a SSD so that I can install OSX on the SSD and Win10 or Linux on the HDD. Once I bought such a caddy for my old Lenovo G560 but it froze right with BIOS startup.

Preferred Solution: Which caddy (HDD/SSD/DVD) for Lenovo V110-15IKB

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.)

A: Which caddy (HDD/SSD/DVD) for Lenovo V110-15IKB

I saw a smilar problem in Lenovo Z510. In order to solve the problem, caddy was removed and BIOS was restored to factory settings. After these changes, caddy with HDD could be installed again. AFAIK, there's no official caddy for your laptop. In Poland we have caddys from Zeta, which are quite good. I can't say what caddys are available in your country.

Hello. I am going to buy Lenovo 320-15IKB with no optical drive. Also I would like to change the standart HDD for SSD and use this HDD as a second hard drive. Therefore, I would like to ask if i may add the HDD using caddy adapter even if there is no optical drive in the model. There is no problem with opening laptop, but i would like to ensure that the space of DVD is empty and could be used. In the second place, I am not sure if there are all cable connections in there. I mean if there is a SATA connector which corresponds to DVD drive in other models. Another possible problem is the way to fix caddy to the motherboard. Normally it can be fixed by a metal part and a screw form the optical drive. But by not having dvd rom, would it be possible? In the case of having the hole, where may I get the metal part and the screws needed? And finally, would it fit using a standart 9.0 mm caddy? Or the only option is to use my HDD as an external hard?Thanks in advance PS. And another little question about RAM-memory. Would those models work well in it? Are they compatible? Which one would be better? (I believe that HyperX sue to CL13)1. HyperX Impact HX421S13IB/8 https://www.inet.se/files/pdf/5310120_0.pdf2. Kingston KCP421SS8/8

A week ago, I bought Crucial 8GB DDR4-2400 SODIMM (CT8G4SFS824A & single ranked) as Crucial System Scanner suggested it is compatible with my brand new Lenovo V110-15IKB. Its OS is Windows 10. I have inserted this ram part into my laptop and it works well. 12GB appears under Device specifications at About (its 4GB is non-removable). However, when I shut it down and next day, it won't boot. Just black screen, CapsLk light is on (normally it turns off before Lenovo logo appears) and not responding. I have removed ram part and laptop booted with original 4GB ram. I reinserted 8GB part back and it booted.  But it's still same, it won't boot second time unless 8GB part is removed and reinserted. I've looked for solutions across the internet but none worked (most of them are for home-built PCs) including safe mode resetting (supposed there to be troubleshooting but this laptop didn't have done troubleshooting after resetting and yet it won't boot second time). Also, I got BIOS/UEFI driver upgrade from Lenovo but it's still same. Though I have no idea how to use UEFI. Sorry, I'm not much technological person. I'm baffled with this. I haven't seen similar problem as this. Why does laptop refuse to boot second time with 8GB installed? Is this 8GB ram defective? Should I use other 8GB part (dual ranked one)? What about 2666 one? I don't want to open my laptop repeatably as it would wear ram slot out. Any solutions? Thank you. By the way, I have po... Read more

Hi,  I'm currently running BIOS 2TCN32WW.  The machine seems to be having some issues with recovering from sleep/standby.  Very irritiating.  I'm hoping that a BIOS update might fix it.  However, running the BIOS update package through Vantage or via the downloaded file doesn't work.  Everything runs okay to the point where it is supposed to start flashing then the screen goes blank and nothing happens.  I've left it like that overnight and no change in the morning - so time isn't the problem.  Turning it off with the power button and on again and it comes to life.   Any ideas on how to get the BIOS update to run please?  Wish Lenovo would provide a version you can run from USB...  Thanks

I've noticed a strange phenomenon with my Lenovo V110-15IKB after I put in another 4 GB into the only slot available:Though the BIOS recognizes the full 8GB, macOS 10.12 (and also 10.13/High Sierra) does not and does not start at all. But when I start Linux or Windows both seem to accept both.To have startup macOS I have to manually register the RAM in Clovers Config.plist. Another strange effect is with Memtest86:The utility only sees the soldered 4GB but not the new module, though it obviously recognizes the full 8192MB.What's wrong?

The screen goes from black to a back-lit black. Then the Boot meny appears where every option returns to the boot menu. The Novo button gives the start menu.

Hello, I have a problem with my HDD.I recently installed a SSD hard drive in the old HDD slot, and the old HDD in the DVD slot with a caddy.The system is booting from the SSD, no problem there.The problem starts when i try to access the HDD from Windows Explorer for example; it works for a minute let's say, and after thet i get the "not responding" issue. It is like the system shuts down the power for the HDD. If i close Windows Explorer from Task Manager, the whole system crashes and i have to restart the laptop.Do you have any idea how to fix this?? Do i have to set up the HDD in a different way?? Both SSD and HDD are set as "Primary". Please help!  Thank you.

So ive encountered a recuring problem with my V110 laptop. The HDMI port on the computer is sometimes not working. Usually it takes a couple of hours each time to get it working again but im getting annoyed that this is a requrring problem. (general things ive done is make sure the HDMI ports on tv works, changed hdmi cable, changed computer ect to verify its a problem with the V110)Generally the HDMI port stops working after either windows updates, or software installs, however this time it did not work to roll back any updates or uninstall any programs. Ive disabeled and re-enabled graphics drivers, updated graphics drivers, rolled back a windows sequrity update that came into play 13th/14th of sep. 2017.Nothing shows up under display adapter in device manager, and ive tried many of the suggestion fixes on different forum posts to no solution.I'm fresh out of ideas.

My sister  asked me to reinstall Windows on her Lenovo V110 17.3'' HD+ AG i3-7100U 4GB 1TB DVDRW M430.She uses WIFI everyday but I can't get it to connect. There seems to be no wifi adapter, but it's enabled in BIOS. There's no physical switch to enable/disable WIFI. Official guide mentions pressing F7 to disable airplane mode but it's disabled: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_v110-17isk_v110-17ikb_ug_en_201701.pdf?linkT...123

A:How do I turn the WIFI on in Lenovo V110-17IKB?

My guess would be that the driver for the WiFi adapter is not properly installed.    If you right-click Start, select Device Manager and expand the Network Adapters section, do you see a Wireless LAN adapter shown?     If not, are there any unknown devices shown in Device Manager? The latest Lenovo driver for that model is linked below but if you installed Windows 10 1903, you may have to wait for a newer driver if you have the Qualcom WiFi adapter, which is a known issue with the Windows 10 1903 build.    My understanding of the problem, however, is that the card would still be detected, but but connectivity would be intermittent. WLAN Driver (Qualcomm, Realtek, Intel) for Windows 10 (64-bit) - Lenovo V110-17IKBhttps://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/d3lr04af.exe  Best of luck,
