Q: Ideapad 500-15isk 80nt Graphics card change

My ideapad has an amd r7 m360, which is something of a problem as I user Linux Mint based on Ubuntu 16. This card is not supported by the amdgpu-pro driver and ubuntu 16 will the work with the old drivers. While I have a working machine, I don't have this card working as so its a little slow. Is it possible for me to get the card changed or is it fixed into the laptop?

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Dear all, I bought this computer 500-15ISK Laptop (ideapad) - Machine Type 80NT approx. 1 month ago and it is running very slow.I did not install anything on it, I am just using it for browsing Internet and using Microsoft Office.For example, if I have more than 5 tabs open in Google Chrome, it takes me ages to do other tasks, just opening another tab is very long, launching the calculator is long and so on...I bought this computer as my old computer (not Lenovo) was starting to be slow after a couple of years but it happens that this new one is slower than my old one  Has anyone encountered this issue and is there any possibility to fix?Unfortunately, we cannot reach easily a technical help from Lenovo Customer Service... Thanks in advance.

Hi fellow helpers, In urgent need of help (I guess everyone is in need of that over here) I have two questions.  1. I purchased the Lenovo Ideapad 500 15ISK laptop in October 2016. I regisitered it on Lenovo support in December 2016, however i noticed that my laptops warranty runs out on 7th February 2017. Its been 4 months since I purchased this laptop and the warranty was for 1 year. How is this possible that it runs out in 4 months? 2. I have been having problems with the laptops wifi connectivity. While I am browsing the internet, for some reason the webpage keeps on loading for 2-3 minutes before loading completely. My old laptop, tablet and work fine without any delays. I have virgin media 50MB. I have updated the drivers but still no solution and this occurs few times everyday. It is starting to really annoy me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. ThanksJackson

A:Can you change the graphics card on an Ideapad Yoga 13?

Hey Jaalhu, Most of the laptops have gfx processors so you'd have to swap the proc. For example, Intel HD Graphics 520 or 620 in processor. You can always lookup your graphics properties by searching "msinfo" on your computer then expanding Components and select display. Hope this helps.

I love this laptop but I was wondering what its upgrade portability are, e.g. can you add more ram and if so how much but what I mostly want to do is add an external graphics card and/or a USB C port please tell me if this is possible and if you know how then how would I go about it. Could you also please list all the upgradable things in this laptop and to how much they upgrade to e.g. the max RAM maybe 16g? for example.

Hi Noah0408  ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
To best identify the details of your model , would you have the machine number ?
Check on the machine number from the sticker or check it from here ,just keep your serial number confidential.
 
This would allow us to identify probable options for upgrades .
Graphics upgrades may be limited to most idealine machine maybe we can check on other options .
 
Update us as soon as convenient. 
 
Regards

Hi, Recently I bought my lenovo 700-15ISK with one of the highest configuration (i7, 16GB RAM) and windows 7.I have huge problem with this computer - it crash 2-3 times per day. When it occure nothing is responding (dislay show some artifacts, noise on audio output) - I'm only able to reset computer by holding power button. It's really annoying because there are days when it doesn't appear and I can't find any common factor of all of this crashes. I'm wondering if I should return computer to seller but I can't afford for delay in my work and I'm trying to figure out what will eliminate or "hide" this problem. Can someone observed similar issue? Maybe this is some driver fault (report  from lenovo solution center attached)?Thans for any sugestions. Regards,Thomas

Hello,  I have the Y700 Touch-15ISK Laptop (ideapad) which I received as a replacement for my last Lenovo which could not be fixed by Lenovo Support. Since I received this as a replacement, my warranty only lasted a month (the residual from my initial warranty). Now, I have only had it for a few months and it has had many instances of the blue screen of death with my computer suddenly needing a restart. I do not have warranty anymore so I am reaching out to you all. The hardware scan says the Mathmatical Operations Test on my Intel (HD) Graphics 550 card failed. I got the result code: WVC007002-UL7VFK. I could not find any information about this code online.  Through the Lenovo website I tried to update my Intel driver by downloading the one the website recommended for my computer after I entered my Serial # (I think it was Intel VGA) and after it downloaded I got a warning saying: "Error: The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Obtain the appropriate driver from the computer's manufacturer. Setup will exit." Regarding the blue screen of death, there have been several different error messages, but the one that comes the most often is "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE". The most recent blue screen message was "Stop Code: SYSTEM SERVICE EXCEPTION; What failed: igdkmd64.sys" I am not sure if these problems are related, but it seems the most important issue is the graphics driver since I use a lot o...

I'm on my second Ideapad 510-15ISK, having returned the first because of USB and SD card slot problems, but this one still has similar issues. They were bought from different PC World stores. They came with Windows 10 pre-installed, and latest updates have been applied automatically. Things seem fine with the USB 3 port on the left-hand side of the laptop. The right-hand-side USB 3 port is distinctly unreliable and so is the SD card slot. My OCZ SSD in a caddy just would not work; it would be recognised initially, cause a long pause and eventually I would get an error saying the device had malfunctioned and was not recognised. Plug it into the left-hand-side USB 3 port and it would come up straight away. The drive is now corrupted but I am working on recovering it. I'm currently sitting here with an "Express Duo" 32GB USB 3 memory stick plugged in, which drops out and comes back again every minute or two, unpredictably, then stays OK for a while. There is a wireless mouse plugged in to the USB2 port and I have no trouble with that. I just plugged in and SD card; it has dropped out and come back once while I was accessing it a couple of minutes ago, fortunately while reading not writing. Oops, there it goes again. It's been suggested that these problems may be something to do with the internal USB hub drivers, but when I try updating the driver it says they are up-to-date.

A:Ideapad 500s - graphics card issue

I've never owned a Lenovo laptop until recently, I've always bought my computers from Dell. However, a couple of week ago, I decided to purchase the Ideapad 500 and I'm already having an issue with the Intel Graphics Card. When I watch videos, like from YouTube, the images keep scrambling and there is a horizontal, white band of interference that keeps flashing at the bottom of the screen. I've even started getting the blue and black error screens. I ran the Lenovo Solutions Center app and got the same result. There was a failure with the Intel HD Graphics Card, "Mathematical Operations Test." Here is the Results Code: WVC007002-RK8WFH. I checked the Intel website for the latest version of the graphics card to see if mine is out of date, and it is. My version is 10.18.15.4279, which was released, 8/24/2015. The new version is 15.40.10.4300, which was released, 10/26/2015. The recommendations given by the Intel website for updating the driver, seem to address the issues I'm having with the blue and black screens. Anyway, since my driver is out-of-date, I downloaded and tried to install this latest one, but I got an error message, saying it must be done by the manufacture. I then checked Lenovo's website to see if they had it for downloading, but the only graphics card that Lenovo has available is out-of-date too. I have a two-year warranty, but I don't want to ship my laptop just to have my graphics card updated.

Good day and welcome to the community.While your machine does have discrete graphics, the dGPU is integrated (i.e. soldered) onto the system board. It is not a socketed chip or daughtercard. Very few laptops offered any kind of dGPU upgradeability.
 
Hope this helps to clarify.Regards.
