How To Upgrade SSD On V310-15IKB (80T3

Q: How To Upgrade SSD On V310-15IKB (80T3

Hi. I bought a V310-15IKB (80T3). It was easy to upgrade the parts with my old Lenovo since all I had to do was remove the screws under the battery and the lid would come out. Now I want to connect my SSD to my new laptopn but I couldn't figure out how I can remove the back lid. I removed all the screws but I can't find a handle to grab. There are tutorials on Youtube for 15IKB, but on all of them, there is another hatch for HDD, but not on my model. I am adding pictures of my computer. I'd be glad if anyone can tell me how to remove the back lid.

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.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !

Are you removing the optical drive first if so equipped? By removing it will allow easier removal of the base cover from the top half. Page #32 of your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual will explain how to remove the drive. Starting on page #35 explains the base cover removal. Here is a link to that manual for your reference......

https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/v310-14-15ikb_hmm_en.pdf

There is also a Lenovo Training Video for the V510. Although it is a slightly different model, the technique for removing the base cover should be the same. Here is a link to that video series....

Hi, I just got a new V310-15IKB notebook and I would like to use it with Windows 8.1. I installed the system but I cannot  find the Win8.1 drivers at the download page:http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/cz/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/lenovo-v-series-laptops/v310-15ikb/d... Suprisingly, Win7 drivers seem to be available, but there are no drivers for Win 8.1 listed. Where can I get the appropriate W8.1 drivers? So far, I have managed to get some of the things working (e.g. the wlan and camera) by intalling either the W7 or W10 drivers. However, the driver for the graphics chip seems to be troublesome. I tried installing the driver provided by Intel (https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26836/Graphics-Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-15-45-?v=...) but it refuses to intall and claims that minimum requirements are not met. What should be done to get around this issue?

Well, since no one had replied to my previous question, i will ask again.Firstly, how many time do i have to start a new topic to get noticed?My 1month old laptop freezes constantly, i don't know what is happening, checked everything related to the updates, drivers, errors, viruses, scans and that stuff, laptop doesn't have heating issues, app crashing, slowdowns... Did the lenovo slution center scans, it is all good. I heard from the other members that replacing motherboard wont solve the problem, so dont try that, i am asking you what else can i do? i cannot even browse the internet, play YT videos,I simply dont have time to waste, reinstalled win10, updtated to the latest bios and even that wont help, so i' am assuming that my device is faulty. How am i supposed to do my job, when i have unstable laptop? I am wondering will you replay this time, and please don't tell me to run lenovo solution center, or to update drivers, or to reinstall windows for the 4th time. I've had enough of it.Looking forward to your reply,Kind regards

When a freeze occurs the entire system locks up, the sound makes a very short interval constant loop, and I have to preform a full reboot. It seems to happen more frequently feels like it can happen at any time. Can any one help me ?

Hi Nawaid,1. Does your systems have other symptoms? Such as slowing down, application crashing, etc.?2. You may try to perform a memory scan to see if there is any issue on the RAM.

Greetings, Two weeks ago, i bought Lenovo V310. Great laptop for the price, But, it freezes on its own from time to time. Laptop is brand new running windows 10. I have tested it with Lenovo Solution Center and it passes all the tests. But my main concern is why the laptop is unresponsive, i've tried pressing num and caps lock button to check if they would switch off but nothing happens. This is my second lenovo laptop and i have to say the previous one G580 worked better.  I bought this V310 for web development and those things should not happen. This problem occurs on Windows 10 and Linux Ubuntu. Do you have any tips how to fix this freezing issue, i cannot rely on the faulty laptop.Thanks,Kind regards!

Hi everybody, I bought a new IdeaPad v310-15ikb, I have been using it for one week and I realized that fun is running all the time, although CPU usage is low (~5%) and its temperature is also ok (36°C, HWMonitor). The fun speed and noise that it does is not big but still audible, it starts quickly after switching on and never stops entirely. I installed the latest bios update yesterday, nothing changed so far. I would like to know if it is normal and I need to accept it (I don't want to return the laptop, I like it otherwise) or if there is a way how to solve it / control the fan speed. Thank everybody in advance.

I bought new V310-15IKB Laptop and I've been using it for three days. Today I turned it on like always (the battery was fully charged the day before, so without the charger connected to it) and a windows update popped out. But at the same time at the screen there was some weird message (I made a photo) So I clicked Enter and it turned on. I saw that the battery is 97% and connected the charger, but it wasn't charging at all to my surprise (it's written 'connected, not charging'). I reset the laptop and problem is still the same. When I disconnect the charger the battery is running lower (from 97% to 95% and so on), when I connect it it's not charging. It's a huge problem for me, I need laptop to work, so I asked my friend to help, but he checked the saving energy thing in lenovo companion and it's turned off, we have no idea why this problem with battery exists. I need my laptop for work, if I can't get it fixed in a few days I have to go to the shop and return the laptop and buy something else instead. I really like it, don't want to do that, anyone can help me with my problem? And sorry but English is not my first language, I tried to translate everything the best I could.

Hi,I just bought the v310-15ISK with model number: 80SY02MMSC. It has 6th gen i7, 8GB(4dim, 4 soldered) ram, amd r5 m430 2GB graphics, 120GB sata SSD in M.2 bay and 1TB hard drive.  I have some questions but to start with RAM. I have read other posts but none do finalize for me what can I do regarding RAM upgrade. Intel for my CPU says 32GB max, Lenovo says 12GB max(with 8GB module added) and some say that on kingston and crucial says 16 GB max. I'm confused. I had 16GB of ddr3 in my, now dead, laptop and i want to eventually reach the same for the sake of productivity applications like Photoshop, premiere, virtualisation ... And with all 3 different answers not clearing up for me. First, I find 4GB soldered dumb, but what can I do with this laptop beeing very good for it's price range compared to others here in my country. Then with 8GB stick added, I would have 12GB with Lenovo specifications beeing happy but having myself unsatisfied, wanting 16GB. Then "trying to obay crucial and kingston" to have 16GB max would mean to add 12GB module that doesn't exist as far as I'm concerned. Then Listening to Intel would mean adding a 16GB stick and ending up with 20GB. Not a problem but I might end up running into BIOS or other problems for my computer to ignore "too much ram". So what should I do? Now I'm perfectly happy with SSD that it came with but as it beeing in an M.2 slot, would that mean that I could replace it with M.2 PCIe SSD and would work faster or i...

I've just bought and received a Lenovo V310-14ISK. It came with 4GB RAM memory. I'm looking for information about whether a memory upgrade is allowed for this equipment or not. The installation manual states the following : DDR4-2133 MHz, SODIMM × 1, (max: 4 GB (on board) + 4 GB (on select models)) and provides steps to REPLACE the memory module in the socket.  So, I assumed those instructions are for the replaceable memory (not for the fixed one on board), and as a result, that I upgrade memory to 8GB by installing an additional 4GB memory module. Am I wrong in my assumption ? How can I confirm that without having to open the equipment before buying additional memory ? (PS: Lenovo Support says they do not provide support for such type of inquiries) Thanks in advance Amaury

Hi metalralf,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Product specification shows :
12GB max / PC4-17000 2133MHz DDR4, 4GB memory soldered to systemboard, one 260-pin SO-DIMM socket. 
 
Seems both M471A1K43CB1-CRC and M471A1K43BB1-CRC specifications are compatible 8GB ram to replace your current 4GB stick. I personally would like you to read on product reviews and comments of buyers for each to consider aside from costing and and recent release. 
 
OEM recommended RAM are listed here for your model (click on memory under commodity for filtering) along with substitutes as another option. 
 
Let's have our fellow community members share their thoughts with our post here.
I hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards
