Heyyyy, i've upgraded my HDD to a SSD recently and wanted to put the HDD in a caddy , bought the correct caddy ,installed the ssd did everything i could and BABAM laptop would not start whenever the CADDY with HDD or SSD or whatever i put into the caddy is into the laptop.Like it would just load windows for forever and if windows starts it will not display the HDD (only in disk manager but diskmanager loads for like 15-30minutes before it even detects it) also it just sits at 100% usage with latence of around 1000-10000ms which is depressing cause i would really like to have a way of having more then 240gb space , not like ill be in need of space soon cause im not installing any useless stuff but for backing up stuff or downloading lets say games if i ever wanted to play something...Thanks in advance! Best regards,Reisser.

Hello dear Lenovo community, I've been having a problem regarding an HDD caddy for about two months now. After deciding I wanted to make my G510 a little bit faster, I bought a Kingston 240GB SSD (don't think the brand is needed) to put instead of the SSHD I previously had. Of course 240 GB is not that much. I only wanted it for the Windows partition. So, I also bought an HDD caddy to put it instead of the ODD (Optical Disk Drive). So far so good. Everything came and I made the swap. The SSD inside the original place of my SSHD and then I removed the ODD to put the HDD caddy with the SSHD in it. The problem is, it is not recognized when booting. The laptop just hangs/freezes at the Lenovo logo. I tried to switch places (SSHD in its original place and SSD in HDD caddy) and to my suprise, both of the drives were recognized, but I could not format my SSD and access it whatsoever. I discovered a workaround where I put the ODD tray back in, start Windows from the SSD, then while booted and loaded, I take the ODD tray out and insert the HDD caddy with the SSHD. Then, Intel Rapid Storage recognizes it and my drives are correctly shown. The problem is when I shutdown the laptop and turn it back on, I go back to my first problem, which is freezing Lenovo logo. The only way I can work with this, is if I just restart or put the laptop in Stand by. Even when I put it in Stand-by, sometimes the SSHD gets disconnected and I have to do the ODD tray thing again.

Holla Amigos!

Long time reader, first time poster... You know how it is!
I'm totally desperate...

I tried everything I can think of, yet my Caddy is still going crazy.
Specs:

Lenovo G510

Windows 7

i7 4700MQ

8GB Ram

AMD Radeon Graphics HD8750 M

1 TB SSHD

250 GB Samsung EVO SSD (currently in the caddy)

(the original build: https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00FQLVHK0/ref=oh_aui_...)
Basically, the Laptop will no longer detect the SSD (or HDD, doesn't make a difference) placed
in the caddy anymore. It never worked 100%, but for a long period of time it worked atleast most
of the time. Every 5th boot or so, it wouldn't get recognised - which is why I never put the OS
on the SSD, since it was to unreliable. Instead, I put my audio software, plugins and video caches
onto the SSD (I know, that's not really the point... But I feel like it made some difference).
For a few weeks now, no harddrive in the caddy whatsoever is recognised at all. Not in the Bios,
not in the device manager and not in Windows' harddrive manager. This was more of a gradual
thing, i got a bunch of blue screens durring the boot process (usually at the Windows 7 loading bar).
Occasionally, it will show up in the boot menu - but as soon as I actually boot, it will once again be undetectable.
The CD drive works just fine when I put it back in, so it can't be the SATA port.
I tried three different Caddys, so that can't be the problem either- unless the G510 need... Read more

Hello Lenovo community, I replaced my hdd to ssd about 2 weeks ago. I had to format because the windows doesn't see it but after the format it works. Until 2 day ago. The hdd not always appear in windows but sometimes after several restart it works again. Sometimes when it works at the windows start, it dissapear again. I bought a new caddy but i got the same results. I read some forums that some laptops can't handle the hdd caddy properly because the sata connector only accept the odd, but in my case it works sometime so i don't now. I use the latest drivers and windows 10.

I almost never shut my laptop down completely. Instead, I set my laptop up to sleep while not in use. Recently, there have been several occasions when I would attempt to wake it up and the webcam light and the lights on the front of the laptop come on, but the screen would not. In these instances, I would push the power button to put the laptop back to sleep, close the laptop, reopen it, and hit the power button to wake it up again. Most times, the screen would come back on, however, more recently I would have to repeat these steps multiple times before the screen would come back on. Now, the screen won't come on at all, no matter how many times I turn it off completely and retry. You might note that the external HDMI connection DOES still work and everything seems to work fine through an external monitor (just not my laptop screen), so I am wondering if this means that the screen has gone bad and if this means the gpu is okay. After poking around on these forums, I attempted severaI fixes, but none seem to have worked. I shined a flashlight (or "torch" for europeans..) at an angle to see if the screen is just extremely dimly lit, but I've verified that it is completely black with no activity there. I tried removing the battery, holding the power button for 20 seconds and rebooting--no dice. I even removed and reseated the RAM and checked the ribbon connection to the screen. I saw somewhere that I might need to reset the BIOS, however I can't seem to get to the BIOS usin... Read more

I have a Lenovo G510 running Windows 10, upgraded from 8.1 long ago.  I'm not sure if there was a recent update that caused this problem, but one evening everythings was fine, and I know because I fell asleep with the "Simply noise" website playing white noise, and when I woke up, there was no sound.  I tried all the normal fixes (reinstalled drivers in device manager, downloaded latest drivers directly from Lenovo website and tried them, restarted Audio Endpoint and Audiosrv in taskmanager, even went into regedit and checked that the value for the audio endpoint was correct, but made no registry changes) all to no avail.I was beginning to think that there was a wiring problem and was getting ready to open it up and look around, but decided to try something else first.  I put in my ubuntu live cd and restarted without installing ubuntu.  All audio works in Ubuntu. Speakers, headphone and mic jacks, and I even tried my usb>headphones/mic adapter and everything works.  I'm planning to dualboot ubuntu while waiting to find a fix in windows, but I've never had a dedicated Linux machine so I'd like to still be able to turn to Windows since I'm about to go back to school in a few weeks.Please let me know if there's a fix out there for this that I haven't tried, or if I need to post more information to check for other problems that may have caused this.  Thanks in advance! -Tronk

Note: I actually "fixed" this problem with a system restore, but seeing as how it keeps recurring every few months I'd like to find out what the root problem is.

So, the programs my laptop had installed with Windows 7 stop working around 1 - 2 minutes after I start up windows. I can still use Firefox, Google Chrome, Skype etc. but any windows-related programs such as Task manager or cmd.exe stop responding. If I use ctrl+alt+del to get to the menu and then return to windows, the whole screen turns black. If I open Skype or other programs like that, they show up on the black and a snapshot of the window stays if I move the window around.
Also I can't stop the programs, they just get stuck.
Shutting down the computer shows that all the stuck programs suddenly start working for those few seconds between windows stopping all processes and shutting down the computer.
I figured it could've been Explorer.exe messing up, but I tried killing that process in the 2 minute window and the system still got stuck. Tried googling for the problem, but didn't seem like anyone else had anything like this.

What should I do, are there any good diagnostic programs?

From these three factors, my first suspicion is that you have I/O issues. Your drives are probably fine.

If the HD and the CD are on the same IDE cable (assuming these are IDE, you didn't say), I'd check the cable for breaks/burns or just for a bad connection (cable detaching from connector, or not plugged in tightly to the MoBo).

Check your connections... ESPECIALLY to the CD. Any software that was installed from that drive might not have installed properly, and half of your trouble may just be your hard drives reading badly written data.

I bought this Lenovo Yoga 900 Orange on Arpil 8 2016. Today is June 8 2016, I have to make this post.  I was in the meeting yesterday and taking note on MS words. And that was the only program that I opened at that time. Suddenly, the screen turn pitch black on me. I thought that it was the display driver again. Yet this time it stopped for at least 15 minutes, and I had to switch to pen and paper to take note of the meeting. During that time, I try to restart the computer by hitting the power button. Until the third time, the screen was coming back to me. This is very awful.  I bought this machine and heard the rumor that its display driver is not good. But I DO NOT expect it to be that bad. Before the major incident above, the driver did stop 3 times in the past, but it restarted within second. I did a little research and knew that other users had to deal with that too. So I thought that once in a while the screen will die for several seconds, and it was ok with me.  Yesterday, during my meeting, stop more than 15 minutes. Unbelievable!!!.  I want to return the product. Please guide me through this process. If I have to pay the 15% fee, I will do it.

Hi all,
I have a Tecra W50 PT640A-04103NN1.
When a second hard-drive is installed in the DVD drive bay the laptop will try to boot of the bay disk, not the internal disk
This seond disk has no operating system installed and so the boot fails.

If I hit F12 at boot time and select HDD, then the machine boots correctly. I.e. boots from the main hard drive.
Changing the boot order in the BIOS does make any difference; it will always try to boot from the second, drive bay disk first.

Has any been able to get this to work properly?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Doppelfrog,
I've got same problem with my W50, got my HDD caddy couple of days ago.
Did you have any luck in fixing this issue?
I believe the Bios for this laptop is not developed to serve two drives (as the computer got only one drive bay) and it's not possible to prioritize witch HDD should boot first...

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

Hello,i have problems with my Lenovo B50-80, running Windows 10.Before this Laptop, i had a HP with a SSD. I replaced the 1000 GB HDD from the Lenovo against the SSD.Next step was to replace the ODD against a HDD Caddy with the 1000 GB HDD.The Problem is, that the HDD is not running. The HDD is visible in Disk Management, but i cant initialize it. It also shows up as "unknown".If i try to initialize it as GPT, a warning shows up, that say that the size of the Disk is to small for GPT. Initializing with MBR there comes warning that System cant find data. Dont know what that means.I thought maybe the HDD is destroyed ore something like that. So i tried it with my tower PC directly connectet via SATA and it worked fine. I also formated the disk with the Tower.Then i tried again with the HDD Caddy and the Laptop but it did not work.In Device Manager it shows up and says, the disk is running without Problems. In Disk Part, the HDD sometimes shows up (with 0 Mb) and sometimes not (which is strange...)In Testdisk, i cant see the HDD. Does anybody know where this problem comes from?Maybe it has something to do with energy savings? Like switching of the ODD when not used? I tried the whole day, but did not find a solution or wokaround. (sorry for bad english)

It would be helpful to know what you are calling a "caddy" and how it is connected to the notebook, and what OS you have installed.

Hi! I have a G510 laptop. Few days back the LAN stopped working. It does not detect the ethernet connection....It says 'unidentified network'. I tried a system recovery, did a full antivirus scan but the problem still persists. Please help me out...I'm really worried!

A:Lenovo G510 LAN issue

Hi Saum , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
How did you do system recovery ? 
Was is just a system restore or a full factory system recovery using the novo button from initial back up ?
Was there any yellow marks on device manager ?
Any blinking link lights on the port connection of the cable when plugged in?
 
Update us so we can further isolate the issue.
 
Regards

Hello, I have a Lenovo G510 with i7 4200 MQ processor. Unfortunately, this processor does not support VT-d. I wonder if I can upgrade my processor to, let's say, i7 4910 MQ. I have read somewhere that they are still in one family. Or if there is somehow a way to enable VT-d within my current laptop. Thanks!

Hello, Since two months or so I can't use my Lenovo G510 properly, because it keeps crashing and acting strange. I updated the drivers as far as I know and the harddrive scan told me theres nothing wrong with my system. I did a virus check and couldn't find anything. I get blue screens with a diversity of errors, the system sometimes deletes my games, programs or bootes in some sort of "safe mode" in which my laptop looks like it has been taken back to the fabric configuration and has deleted everything (after restarting it's back to my current desktop , and I get all my programs and files back like nothing happened), and there are times in which my system won't boot at all. I start, it loads 5 seconds and turns off. I am clueless and at the point of throwing the thing through the window. I really hope someone here can tell me what might be wrong and what to do to fix this problem. I made some photos of the crashes and put one of them in here so you can see what those errors are. It's dutch, I'm sorry for that but the text says: "There's a problem with this computer and it has to be rebooted. Errordata will be collected, then the computer will be restarted." Sincerely,Graciousgirl.
