Preferred Solution: Ideapad 110 - ram 4gb only

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: Ideapad 110 - ram 4gb only

Could you go into task manager, performance and post a screen shot of memory?You only have 1 memory slot It should be 8 GB.Also download CPU-z.http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html Post a screen shot of the SPD tab and Memory tab.

Hey guys, I have a Lenovo Ideapad IdeaPad 100 14ibd - win10 and basically im planning on formatting my laptop to get rid of all the stuff/unknown files that are terribly slowing down my ram. But im still new to this process so im wondering if using Lenovo's Onekey recovery is a good thing but then i saw the Reset this PC feature of windows is another thing. My question is, what would be the more recommended thing i should do to get my laptop to its original state just like the new windows 10, or are there any difference within those  two?PS: I got my back up files all set from this laptop to my external hd already Thank you!

Hi
 
I got a 2nd hand Lenovo Ideapad 100S. It came with Win10 installed but had someone elses profile and data. 
(I am not sure if it originally had Win8.1 when it was shipped, there is no rollback option anymore)
 
My preference is to wipe the current installation completely by downloading Win10 and installing a clean copy off USB. 
 
I also usually prefer to delete all partitions, including recovery because future reinstallations can be done from scratch via USB. (I don't need the option of reinstalling from recovery partitions , the extra space is more important)
 
I see a warning in the user guide however .....
"Do not delete or modify the Recovery Partition on a WIMBoot-enabled computer. If the Recovery Partition is deleted or modified, you may not be able to restore Windows to the factory status. For computer models on which WIMBoot is enabled, deleting the Recovery Partition may cause Windows to fail to start. How can I determine whether the Windows running on my computer is WIMBoot enabled? WIMBoot technology is normally enabled on copies of Windows 10 Update running on SSD (or eMMC) -only computer models."
 
What is the best way to do this?

Install a clean copy and remove the partition by booting off a USB, or should I not do this?
Via Settings: settings > Recovery > Reset this PC > Remove everything, or
settings > Recovery > advanced startup > Reinstall from USB

A:Ideapad 100s - Win10 clean installation on ideapad...

 Hi larrens , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
It's a good thing you posted first before proceeding with any clean installation. 
Not sure what the Machine Number is to verify the details and specifications of your system.
 
But if you have a pc with a Windows Image Boot (or WIMBoot) you may not want to choose a clean installation. 
This new deployment of installation is compressing part of a big OS file so that you can have an operating system that can only take small spaces intended for small storages (SSD).
 
Best option to wipe out previous owners profile is a have a fresh out of the box image is using the Puch button Factory reset (Novo key similar to Item 7 page 1). Simply shutdown the system and use the button to turn on, System Recovery option would provide One key recovery from initial backup to do it. 
 
WIM boot are usually created thru OEM depot authorized by Microsoft . DIY for WIMboot maybe a bit complicated.

Hope this answered your query.
Update us.

Hi,

I want to update BIOS, so I downloaded D5CN47WW. In text file it is written that this is BIOS for my computer.
Everything seems fine but when I execute BIOS exe file it says that this is BIOS for Lenovo Paris 300 notebook!
What Paris now? I tried to google but only can find Paris in France.
I am user of Lenovo notebooks for many years (from IBM ThinkPads to this days) but when txt Readme file said
this is update for your computer, it was! This is confusing for me so I cancelled update.
Can anybody explain this mistery?

I see nowhere to select USB drive as the boot option. When I enter boot menu my options are as follows: SATA HDD, SATA ODD, Windows boot manager with my SATA HDD name. I dont see a USB option to boot from? "Secure Boot" is an option mentioned in some forum posts, but I cannot find this option in my setup. Another thing I read was disabling USB from the boot exclusion list. This is another option I cannot find at all. The guide from lenovo site here https://support.lenovo.com/za/en/solutions/ht500207 shows a different BIOS menu that I see on my laptop. I just need a simple fix, why is this so complicated

Hi lamradnane , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
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) .  It would appear similar to this 80QQ00CQUK  .
 
Physical devices detected by the machine should show in the BIOS . Turning off the system and using the Novo key to power on would give Novo Menu that offers BIOS set up as this can also be verified within windows under device manager if recognized.
 
The parts lookup page would also be able to verify the devices /parts using the machine number or SN. 
 
Update us as soon as convenient.

Hi pachecore , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Adding or upgrading your devices will not void the warranty as long as there won't be any damage done to the machine in doing so .
 
As a lot of users have done their upgrades , with 80RU00CYUS you would be needing additional HDD bracket an cable unlike if you purchase 80RU00D8US with 1TB 5400 RPM+256GB PCIe SSD on it on complete package .
 
Similar discussions here and here for your reference as post were from previous months ago but still worth a while to check. Herewith is the hardware manual guide for the upgrade you are planning.

Hi, I've honestly went through heaps of different related topics but have not found anyone else installing an additional hdd/ssd into their Ideapad 700. All what I could find is about Ideapad Y700, which is surely a different model (confusing yay). So my question would be - has anyone else done it before? Would the tray that fits Ideapad Y700 also fit Ideapad 700? Thanks

zerkms wrote:have not found anyone else installing an additional hdd/ssd into their Ideapad 700.I have an Ideapad 700-15ISK.  The version that I purchased has an SSD in the form of a circuit board that plugs into an M.2 socket, and a 2.5 inch HDD that plugs into a conventional SATA socket.  I think that some versions of the 700 were sold with SSD and no HDD, and others with HDD and no SSD.  But you can add only the type of disk that your 700 does not already have. From what I have read in other threads: (1) If you want to fit an M.2 SSD, you will need to source the screw to fix it (not included with the SSD or the 700). (2) If you want to fit a 2.5 inch HDD, you will need to source certain parts not included with the 700.  I am not sure exactly what these parts are, but it is something like the mounting frame and the connecting cable.  Look in the "Hardware Maintenance Manual" (HMM) for the 700.  You can download it from the Lenovo support page for the 700. -- from CyberSimian in the UK

A:Possible to upgrade CPU in Ideapad 100?

No, it's not possible to replace CPU in your laptop. Last laptops with repleacable CPUs (socketed) were in Haswell generation. You have laptop from newer - Broadwell generation. Moreover i5-6600K is a Skylake PC's CPU. FYI there are laptops specially designed to support PC's replaceable CPUs - sadly, can't say more about them - you'll need to look for them yourself. And they are really pricey.
