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.)

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.

I bought the Legion Y520 back in March or April and now the USB ports are constantly disconnecting and reconnecting intermittently. This happens both with my phone as well as my external periphreals such as my mouse. Windows says the USB is unrecognized and to verify USB ports are working properly. According to my Device Manager, all are up to date and no issues. Hoping there isn't a malfunction with the motherboard.

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 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.

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

My lenovo legion Y520 touchpad isn't responding at all, it is working fine for the first 1-2 hours when i use it, then suddenly it stops working for no reason at all, it got fixed everytime i restart the laptop, but it's too troublesome when im doing some work, here's some weird thing :1. When i go to the setting, the touchpad didn't have any option available but the touchpad sensivity,2. On the device manager the ELAN pointing device is up and running3. On the mouse properties it also says that the smartpad is enabled, but it didn't respond, not even the left-click and the right-click4. Everything else is working normally, Fn+F6 shows that the touchpad is on or off but the touchpad isnt responding when it was turned onI tried googling but couldn't found any similar problems to mine, i hope some experts could help up, thanks in advance! Edit : Im currently using windows 10

Hallo zusammen, ich habe gestern meinen neuen Legion Y520 15IKBN bekommen. Es hat kein Betriebssystem mitgeliefert, daher wollte ich von einer bootfähigen externen Festplatte Windows 10 installieren, aber irgendwas hat mit dem ISO-Abbild oder der externen Festplatte nicht gestimmt, sodass die Installation noch recht am Anfang abgebrochen wurde. Der Laptop hatte dann einfach einen Lila-Screen gehabt und auf nichts reagiert, daher habe ich ihn mit der Power-Taste ausgeschaltet. Heute habe ich mir einen USB-Stick besorgt und wollte die Installation nochmal versuchen, aber als ich den Laptop einschalten wollte, passierte nichts, außer dass die Tastaturbeleuchtung anfing zu blinken. Es sind auch keine Lüftergeräusche zu hören oder sonstiges. Ich habe bereits versucht das Akku-Kabel zu entfernen und die Power-Taste 20 Sekunden lang zu drücken, das Blinken hört dann zwar auf, aber wenn ich die Power-Taste wieder drücke, blinkt die Tastatur wieder. Die Novo-Taste reagiert ebenfalls nicht. Was könnte ich denn noch versuchen? Viele Grüße

I installed a WD Black 256G NVMe M.2 in my Legion Y520. Got Windows 10 installed in the SSD and Fedora 26 GNU/Linux in the HDD (1TB Seagate).  Everything is good in Windows. But when I use Fedora, the SSD, overheat badly (80-90C) and eventually shut itself down eventough it is not being used at all (it is not even mounted). This also happens in GRUB and ubuntu 16.04 (live USB). WD denied any support, they just say they are not optimized for Linux.
