Solved: Is this RAM compatible with my Lenovo IdeaPad Z575?

Q: Solved: Is this RAM compatible with my Lenovo IdeaPad Z575?

Yesterday afternoon I purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad Z575 for $499.00 from this link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834246328

Obviously, it hasn't come in the mail yet. I'm looking to upgrade the RAM in the laptop. It comes with 6gb of RAM, a 4gb stick and a 2gb stick. The problem is, I don't really know what kind of RAM is in the computer. I'm looking to replace the 2gb stick with a second 4gb stick.

The type of RAM the laptop uses is pc3-10600 1333mhz ddr3, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin so-dimm socket RAM.

My question is whether or not this RAM is compatible with the laptop: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-Extreme-MV-3T4G3-US/dp/B00591ZYX8

Also, if there is a better option for RAM for this laptop, I'd like to know.

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: Solved: Is this RAM compatible with my Lenovo IdeaPad Z575?

Honestly, I think I may have mental problems. It looks like I answered my own question in this post. That RAM is compatible with my laptop. So I guess I'd just like to know if this RAM is the best option for this particular laptop.

I am having issues with onekey recovery because I am trying to factory reset my laptop. I have used it before without issues, but I believe it may have happened after I tried out Windows 10 but then reverted back to Windows 7. If I try to use OneKey recovery through the program, when I select the option to reformat, it just restarts my computer normally. If I try to use the onekey recovery key on the keyboard, it just turns on my computer normally. Any solutions to this issue?

I have a Lenovo Ideapad Z575 laptop with windows 7 pre installed on it. With the realse of windows 8, I decided to upgrade from windows 7 to windows 8. That was a big mistake; So, I wen't from windows 8 back down to windows 7. I didn't notice this until after I setup my computer but the windows 7 drivers got deleted and they were replaced with nothing. Because this is a Lenovo brand computer, it has a program called onekey recover. So I installed that through a USB becuase the laptop doesn't have a LAN wireless network connection driver on it. And I don't have internet at my house. So anyways, once that was installed, I ran it and it didn't work. Is there anyway I can restore all of my drivers and use the lenovo onekey recovery?

A:Lenovo Ideapad Z575 Upgrading & Downgrading - Mssing Drivers

You will have to download the drivers from Lenovo. Generally, Windows 7 will install many drivers, although it may not install all.

You will have to download all the drivers from Lenovo for the Z525. Start with the video, Sound, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, touchpad, etc.

Once a different OS was installed on the PC, I don't think the Onekey or any recovery partition will work. Only a manual install with a Windows disc and all the drivers.

I have a Lenovo Ideapad z575 with an AMD A-Series APU, and also a discrete video card which I can run in Crossfire if I so choose.

I have been having problems with it randomly restarting without any error in even viewer, no blue screen, nothing. It seems to have begun doing this when I tried upgrading the memory by swapping the 2gb stick for a 4gb (8gb total), and it does not seem to be overheating. It will do it playing youtube videos, gaming, and also just sitting idle in chrome.

I have noticed that according to CPU-Z my memory is currently running with very low timings compared to their specifications, and I don't know why. I have tried switching slots, switching sticks, removing sticks, etc, and it does not change this. I have no option in the BIOS to change memory timings, and am wondering if it has something to to with the integrated video processor on the APU.

Any help would be great!

Also, it should be noted that I don't have the 2gb stick anymore to try putting it back to stock.
 

A:Ideapad z575 Random Restart

Actually it looks like using Slot #1 allows it to run at the correct timings. Why would Slot #2 force both banks to use the wrong (faster) timings?

And now for some reason it looks like I can add the second slot and have correct timings... how strange. It is still restarting when playing flash video.

I have an IdeaPad Z575. When I used Windows 7 I did not run into any issues with the (Chrome) browser going back a page while I was in the middle of typing. Since the upgrade to Windows 10, this issue occurs quite often.
 
I do not see the back keys that I have seen on some of the Thinkpads. Any idea what is causing this? I am figuring it is a combination of keys, but I have been unable to figure out which keys and/or touch pad combo is causing it.
 
I've attached a photo of the keyboard for anyone unfamiliar with the layout. The left and right mouse buttons aren't in the photo but are below the touch pad.
 
Thanks!

Hey guys,  I have the Lenovo Ideapad 520 (80YL00RXIN) and wanted to replace the CD Drive with the Samsung 850 Evo 250GB Solid State Drive  in order to increase the Boot Speed and over-all speed of the laptop.  So, the question is, Is the Samsung 850 Evo SSD compatible with my laptop? And will it fit in terms of size, in place of the CD Drive? Also, is it recommended to add the SSD? Any downsides to doing so?  Lastly, will I, someone who knows the basics about computers and the internal components of a computer, be able to install the SSD myself? Or would I rather outsource it to someone who deals in things like this? Thank you. Regards,Neel.

Hello, I'm having issues with my Lenovo z575 (Windows 10) and its wireless adapter: Ralink RT3090 802.11nMy computer can run ethernet, but I cannot detect any wireless networks and claims that "no networks are available" despite the fact that I have 3 other devices that can connect to my home wifi.I've tried updating my Ralink drivers, but I don't think they're doing anything.Ralink doesn't show up in my Network Adapters tab in Device Manager, even with hidden view on.A wireless adapter doesn't show up in my "Network Connections" despite the fact that my ethernet, bluetooth, and VPN networks do (bluetooth and VPN are disabled)I've tried a lot of the conventional solutions to no avail, and I'm pretty sure this is an issue with hardware or at least my Ralink wireless adapter is being disabled (I'm running my laptop on high performance, but I can't directly edit the wireless adapter since it doesn't show up in the Device Manager)I've system restored to a date before I was encountering problems with my wifi, but nothing changed.I've open my laptop up and the wireless adapter seems just fine, doesn't look damaged, tampered with, or "out of place"Any advice, tips or solutions? It would be much appreciated.

A:Lenovo z575 Wireless issues

[email protected] If as already reinstalled the driver for the network card and still the same it is not activated, it is very likely that failure as your good indicate though, you do not see a physical damage on the card is left to operate, is a hardware problem, because if it were properly it does reinstalling the driver. Technical Service Lenovo:https://support.lenovo.com/es/es/documents/ht100529 Regards.

Nowhere in the documentation, web site is any info about what kind of controller and hence what size SD cards this model is supporting.Even Lenovo tech support doesn't know that info!I am really hesitant to buy a SDXC card of +32GB only to find out it supports on SDHC cards, thus limited to 32GB... thanks for any useful info, Ralf

A:What kind of SD card controller is in a Lenovo IdeaPad 120S-11AIP? SDHC or SDXC compatible?

Hi ITWorxLA,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As per system overview :
IO port: Memory card slot (SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC)
 
Platform specification:
One microSD Card slot, supports up to 2TB
 
Usually there would be stickers on the box or laptop to indicate the format it also supports.
You can try to find/borrow  a spare 32GB SDXC to test first before purchase.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

Hi huQbbTCi,
 
Greetings.
 
Lenovo active pen 1 is also compatible with Yoga 920 as shown in the accessories search tool here PART # GX80K32884. It would be less sensitive to depth perception but with palm rejection enabled then you may not have the same issue on losing contact with it. 
 
It would also be favorable to have it tried first before any purchase specially if you have someone that have it and compare it with other active pens whichever would be comfortable and efficient to your writing style.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

I am totally disappointed in Lenovo's customer support. My lenovo 710s was bought less than 1 year ago (as of 10/6/2017, when I sent it in for repairs) and had 2 years warranty (1+1 year of extended warranty). I sent my laptop for repair due to a white spot issue on the monitor, affecting viewing of webpages and videos. However, the laptop was returned after 3 weeks without any fixes/repairs, as Lenovo claimed that it was a cosmetic issue. I wrote a message on their customer care website on 3/7/2017. However, they ignored me and there was no reply to date.  I thought Lenovo is a reliable and popular brand. However, it turned out to be a horrible decision, much to my dismay!

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.

Hello! I am new to Lenovo and picked up my 1st laptop yesterday when my HP died. I have always had HP and grew tired of how easy they break & poor battery life, so I wanted to try a different band. I love the computer, the keyboard, track pad & screen are amazing. I bought the ideapad 320-15IAP for about $330 (Including tax) The specs at the store advertised 4.5-5 Hours of battery life, but I have not been able to get a charge better than 2 hours. For someone that uses my laptop at work and on the go, this will not do. Can any one offer up any advice? Does lenovo sell stronger batteries for ideapad that I can replace with this current battery?  My next issue is the Windows 10 update that you are forced to do, I have been trying to install it since 9PM last night, it is now 9PM tonight, a full 24 hours, and it has not fully installed. I have done my fair share of google searches and many people have had these same issues too, but no good solutions outside of deep computer hacking, I don't want to have to do that on a brand new computer. Thanks for any and all help!
