Preferred Solution: Lenovo Y520 Can i use 2666mhz ram?

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 own a Lenovo Legion Y520 (the one with 2tb HDD) and I would like to add an SSD to it as well. From what I've read, if I want to keep my HDD and add an SSD, I will need an M.2 type SSD. Also, I have found an SSD that I think would be compatible with my Y520, but I wanted to ask here before buying it. The SSD I'm talking about it the SSD WD Black 256GB PCI Express 3.0 x4 M.2 2280. I will also attach a picture of it, so if anyone could tell me if it's compatible, I'll be very thankful.This is the one

Hi, i have  Lenovo y520, with Amd radeon rx560 4gb Gpu, intel i7 7700hq, nvme ssd  and8gb ram. So, my problem  started since i unplugged Ac from laptop to sit in bed to see a movie, and after a time the battey slowly descended, i have put to charge, everything ok to this time.  I started a game to play but i had a laggy game, so i checked the power plan settings if if its on High Performane, it was ok, i tried a restart, a full charge, the problem still occurs. I tried many things to solve the problem, no-one solved the problem.Yesterday i ruuned FurMark to to check if it using the Gpu or the iGpu. It uses the Gpu BUT!! Are not using its Gpu memory, that 4gb, at system display settings it shows that is shared only 128 mb, i tried in regedit to set the segment size to 512, still not working, remains at 128, please.. im searching by 2 weeks after this problem and i cant solve this problem, i hope Lenovo users can help me!

A:Lenovo y520 GPU not using its memory

The 128MB value that FurMark is reporting is a fictitious value set to fool very old games, and has absolutely nothing to do with the RAM that is installed to your AMD RX560, and setting the value higher in the registry will do nothing to change the amount of RAM installed on your video card,     Old video games used to check for enough RAM, and since they cannot address the video card directly to see how much RAM it has, Microsoft tricks them by saying that there is 128MB.    Newer games do not even check that value.  Your problem is with the video driver or some setting etc, but it is not the fictitious 128MB value.      Cheers,

Good afternoon, i was looking to install a new ssd and i looked around to find that many ssd are (rejected?) by the laptop, as i am totally new to this, i' d like to ask which ssd will work and what s special about them that makes them work.thank you   

A:Lenovo y520 SSD upgrade

Hi lorenzolen123,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Would you share the machine number / MTM (ex. 80WK001MUS) from the sticker or check it here so we can detail the specific SSD for your machine?
 
What do you plan to upgrade or are you planning of adding m.2 PCIe SSD or changing HDD to SATA SSD ?
 
The hardware manual specifications would also indicate storages available for you. 
 
Update us soon as convenient.
 
Regards

Hello all. I am about to buy the Legion Y520-15IKBN. It's the i7-7700HQ, GTX 1060  version. I have 2 questions though before I buy it.  1. I have a Seagate Barracuda 5TB 2,5" HDD, a Samsung 960 Evo NVMe 500GB and a HyperX Impact 16GB DDR4-2400 laptop RAM. Can I install them on this model or if I open it it will void the warranty?  2. The laptop comes with no OS. I have Windows 10 on my desktop PC. Since Windows are connected to the Outlook account (I think), will I be able to install and activate them on the laptop or I have to buy new? Thank you very much for any answers

I currently own a Y520 for a year and a month now. An issue that recently rose from my laptop is that at rare occasions, although the F2 key is still working by itself (keyboard testing sites prove it), Fn+F2, which is supposed to lower the volume, won't work. Fn+other Fx keys still work though, excpet for F2. Restarting the laptop multiple times does not solve the problem. This happened once before and it just resolved itself, but now it's taking quite a while. The odd thing is that when I hold Fn+F2, and then let go of Fn while still pressing on F2, it actually does what Fn+F2 is supposed to do, and when I press Fn again, it stops working again, and letting go of Fn makes it work again. I am really confused, is this a software or a hardware issue? Are there any temporary or long term fixes?

Hello, Lenovo Community!I have a laptop Lenovo Y520, which is bought from one year ago. All is good at it, excepts some problems. When i play some games like GTA V, Battlefield 1, PUBG or even League Of Legends, after one hour or less, the laptop is heating up and it starts lagging very bad, and i can't do anything to fix it. When i bought the laptop and started playing GTA V, it was quite well, but now it is infernal. PUBG is lagging so much, i can't even try shooting because laggs during 2-3 seconds. I don't know what to do and i really want to fix it.Specs:Gtx 1050ti 4gbI7 7700hq8gb ram2tb HDD 5400 RPMPlease help me to fix this problem!Thanks, Lenovo Community!

 My machine: Lenovo Ideapad U310  Model 4375  I would like to know if I could replace my 500 GB HDD with a Crucial MX500 500GB SATA 2.5-inch 7mm Internal SSD.I read that mine is SATA 3.0, but that one is SATA 6. Would that work? And could it handle that storage space amount? Thanks!

A:Lenovo U310 (not y520) i7 hdd upgrade.

Good day and welcome to the community.As I understand it, the SATA standard is backward-compatible. An SATA-6 storage device should work fine in an SATA-3 slot, albeit at the slower speed, as long as it physically fits.Regards.

Dear Lenovo community,I am considering an ssd upgrade. I know that my laptop (Lenovo Legion Y520-15IKBN) supports m.2 NVMe gen 3.0 x4, but is it compatible with gen 3.0 x2? I found some good deals, they are actually about half the price of an x4 ssd ...Also, what length does it support? I found a link for the ssd that comes in it (in higher configurations), so is that the maximum length?Thanks in advance for your reply.
