Preferred Solution: Will Samsung SM961 SSD work with Legion Y520?

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.)

Hi,Manual: Page 44http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05270979M.2 2280 SATA SSD is good enough.No M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD slot available. Even if you get the converter and put in PCIe M.2 SSD, it'll only be as good enough as M.2 SATA speeds.http://www.samsung.com/us/computing/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/ssd-850-evo-m-2-500gb-mz-n5e50...Create a recovery USB before any upgrade, using HP recovery manager.RegardsVisruth

I bought a new SAMSUNG SM961 M.2 NVMe SSD.

Mr Google on several sites said that a DVD install will fail at the make Partition stage.

I installed from a DVD no problem. The only changes I made in the UEFI was to disable the other drives so as to be sure to install to the SSD.

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, ich hab ein Problem mit meinem neuen Laptop. Es handelt sich um den Legion Y520. Er kam ohne Betriebsystem, deswegen habe ich alles selber aufgesetzt. Jetzt habe ich immer wieder Bildruckler. Egal ob beim Gaming oder beim Videos schauen oder beim Scrollen auf Internetseiten. Immer wieder hängt das Bild für eine halbe Sekunde. Die Treiber habe ich alle von der Lenovo-Webseite heruntergeladen. Da es sowohl beim gaming als auch beim normalen Betrieb auftritt und der Laptop hier unterschiedliche Grafikkarten verwendet, denke ich, dass es etwas anderes ist... vll Windows? Hat Jemand eine Lösung für mich? Bin für jeden Hinweiß dankbar.

Hi,Page 2, 33: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05117922.Samsung SM961 NVMe M.2 (2280) SSD would be the fastest available in the market. Are you sure it is TLC, rather than MLC?Your notebook supports SSD 2280 M2 PCIe 3x4SS NVMe TLC TL. I'll not take chances buying MLC. Go for TLC type.http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/7762/samsung-sm961-1tb-2-nvme-pcie-ssd-review/index.htmlSpecs:http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-15-bc000-Notebook-PC-series/10862166/document/c05178...Remove HDD from its bay, Install your desired operating system in SSD. Make it boot drive. Then replug HDD. Now SSD will be your boot drive and HDD as storage.Be aware that SSD upgrade needs somewhat major disassembly. Hence if you are doing it alone and break something in the process, HP wouldn't honor the warranty. Get help from HP or a good technician for the upgrade. RegardsVisruth

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

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.
