My T61 has had Blue screen shutdown for more than 6 times since Thursday (7/10) after using the recovery CD sent by Lenovo to restore to its original Vista settings.   That happens about 2 times a day.  I went to the link that was given in the Reports and Solutions to download and install  the driver.  But it does not work.  I also tried to install the firmware that Tech Support told me.  But I found out that my laptop already has the latest firmware during the installing process.  I never had blue screen before.   Are the recovery discs so old that they don't have all the drivers?  Is there anything that I can do?  TIAMessage Edited by newbie on 07-14-2008 01:19 AM

Hi, I am having trouble installing the Intel Turbo Memory Driver. When starting the setup (after extracting), I get an error message saying that my system does not meet the minimum requirements. Is that more likely a software (missing drivers) or a hardware issue (my T400 does not support it)?Looking through the package information, I found that I need to find a IDE ATA/ATAPI controller in the device manager, but I can't find it. Sorry if this is a stupid question, I've looked through a couple of threads and couldn't find anything. I have to add, I am running Windows 7 Pro. I would be very happy to get some support here. Thank you in advance for your help!

Answer:T400: unable to install Intel Turbo Memory Driver

I need to ask a basic question. Does your system have a turbo memory card installed? It is only an option on the T400. Many systems don't have the card. If you have the card, you would be getting "found new hardware" messages at every boot. If I were ordering a system, I wouldn't go out of my way to get the feature. I never found a noticable improvement.

I have a T500 (2081-CTO) with Vista Business 64 SP1 and a 2GB Intel Turbo Memory module.  7200RPM Hitachi Drive HTS722016K9SA00. As delivered with driver version 1.6, the Intel Turbo Memory Console showed both ReadyBoost and ReadyDrive checkboxes checkmarked (enabled). Upon driver upgrade to 1.7.0.1029 (Via ThinkPad Update), the ReadyDrive checkbox is no longer checkmarked.  ReadyBoost remains checked. I am able to manually add a checkmark, after which the utility tells me I need to immediately re-boot.  I do so, but, once re-booted, a check of the Console once again shows that ReadyDrive is NOT enabled. Any ideas? Possibly related:  The Hitachi hard drive spec sheet does not specify an SSD-like cache.  My understanding is the the drive comes with an 8MB cache, as most drives do.  However,the Device Manager properties tab for the drive shows a tab called NV Cache, which states that "This disk has 396MB of non-volatile cache and can help improve system performance.  If using this disk as a Hybrid Hard Disk is enabled..." Well, I used gpedit.msc to make sure all the NV Cache policies are DISABLED. (Incredibly, the setting of DISABLED is supposed to ensure that the use of these technologies is actually ENABLED.  Thank you, Microsoft). Where does this value of 396MB of cache come from?  Is that from the Intel Turbo Memory? I suspect the '396MB' value is actually hard-coded text in the dialog box. ... Read more

Question: Intel Turbo Memory

I have a X200 Tablet, 7450 ERG. I am about to upgrade the SSD from the standard 64GB Samsung MLC disk, to an Intel X-25 G2 160GB disk. I have also installed 4GB of RAM inside the computer purchased from Lenovo, but I am looking for a way to improve speed further. The graphical card would have been a pleasure to change, sacrifice some battery time, but I understand this is not possible unfortunatly. However, to increase the speed, I have seen that Intel advertises for their Intel Turbo Memory. Will I be able to benefit from such an upgrade taken the SSD driver and 4GB og RAM of memory installed already, or is Intel Turbo Memory typically made for slower HDD drives? What Intel Turbo Memory to get (preferably as large in GB and speed as possible), and what is the FRU / CRU number so I can find it on IBM / Lenovo's homepage for purchase? Thank you in advance for comments and advices! Kind regards.

Answer:Intel Turbo Memory

Hi oab! I don't know about the turbo memory. But what improved my tablet was to change to the X-25 G2 SSD, and it will be even quicker when they get the fix on the new ssd firmware.I bought the tablet with Vista, and have just upgraded to Windows 7. It became a new machine. It is quicker, have better text recognition (even in Norwegian), and much more stabile.If you bought the machine after June 26, 2009, you can order the Enhanced Experience Win 7 from Lenovo for free. They claimed that the boot time can improve up to 57%. If you need more than that, I think you bought the wrong machine. Good luck! Axel

Intel Turbo Memory is highly not recommended, since it provides unnoticeable improvement in speed if you got lot of ram, in addition it can cause driver conflict under Vista.  You can install it in one of the occupied mini PCI-e slot, but remember you have to get the Lenovo version, other versions may cause errors.

Did you remove any other cover on the bottom of your laptop? if so, then the memory slots are probably located under the keyboard for you're model.So, take out the screws on the bottom that show a small keyboard picture left to them, and carefully remove the keyboard. You should then beable to locate the memory slots.

I am running out of disk space on my t400 with Intel Turbo Memory and a 160gb hard drive. Is it possible to replace the hard drive with a larger capacity drive? When you order a T400 with a hard drive larger than 160gb the option to order the turbo disappears. As far as I can find all the hard drives are all the same dimensions.

Answer:T400 and Intel Turbo Memory

Yeah, you can upgrade up to a 500GB HDD if you need the extra space, it wont have any impact on turbo memory. The turbo memory option only dissappears with the addition of SSD's since I presume its going to hurt rathr than improve performace given the benefits of running a SSD.

I have a new notebook computer - Sager NP 2096 = P8400, 4 GB RAM, 250 GB 7200rpm HD. I bought the Intel Turbo Drive option with 4 GB memory. The OS is Vista Home Premium 32-bit
Everything is running fine, except the Turbo Drive. I am well-pleased with the computer and Sager tech support has been great, except they have not been able to solve the Turbo memory problem!
I have loaded the latest driver - 1.8.0.1018 - several times. Turbo Memory Console 1.8 gets loaded, but shows both ReadyBoost and ReadyDrive as disabled. Clicking in the box to enable ReadyDrive, and rebooting, does not change the situation. (The box to enable ReadyBoost is grayed out and canot be checked.) A shortcut icon has been placed on ther desktop labeled "IntelTurbo Memory Dashboard" - clicking on this gets a error message "It apears that the Intel Turbo Memory device is not functioning properly or is not present." (I have tried two different Turbo Memory modules, same results.) Device Manager at "Storage controllers" lists "Intel Turbo Memory Controller" and right-clicking, then left-clicking on "Properties" gets the status report that"This device is working properly."

Answer:Intel Turbo Memory on T500

If you are using the default installation your Turbo Memory should already be in use. You can turn it off or change what it is used for in the utility you should find in the Programs menu (as I am not typing this on my T500 I am not sure under what name it is, should be something like Intel Turbo Memory). But you probably don't need to change any of the settings. By default it should be set to use both ReadyDrive and ReadyBoost. I have it left on this setting. Many people argue if it has any use at all - I think it does become useful to speed up things.

Answer:X200 and Intel's Turbo Memory

Save yourself money and hassle. Just buy a 2GB SD card for <$10.  You will get almost the exact same effect of TurboMemory at a fraction of the cost. Alternatively, you would be far better served to just max out your RAM.  DDR3 prices have fallen considerably and you can get a 2GB module for <$50 now.

Answer:Intel Turbo Memory 1GB on Windows 7

Don't bother if you have 2GB installed already as regular ram. You will not notice an appreciable difference.

Readyboost uses memory other than RAM to increase system speed. It's mainly for low memory situations. Say 1GB or less will notice an improvement.

My advice: Don't bother.

Answer:Intel Turbo Memory on T61 14.1 wide

welcome to the forum! given what you said in your cross-post (which i moved out of sight, btw), you already have an intel WWAN card installed.   the T61 only allows a WWAN card or a turbo memory card in that slot.   unfortunately, both cannot be installed in your system simultaneously. with that said, i suggest searching for posts on turbo memory.   while beneficial in some instances, it doesn't seem to net the positive results many expected.   my personal opinion is that you would be better off adding more system memory for the price.   generally speaking, 3GB is ideal for 32-bit vista and 4GB is ideal for 64-bit vista.

Hello folks, I'm interested in upgrading my Lenovo T400 to have as much RAM memory as possible and affordable. I work with Genomics / bioinformatics and I have to manipulate huge data matrix (*.TXT with text and numbers up to 1gb of size) usually using SAS and JMP. Therefore, having RAM memory is essential to me and I have the following questions: 1) I didn't buy my computer with Intel memory card. Can I still buy one and install? Would a 4gb one make a difference to work faster? 2) Is it possible to buy more than 4 gb of memory (total), or the price is too expensive. 3) Considering I upgrade to 4 gb of memory (2 x 2gb) and Intel memory card of 4gb, will I have to change the operational system to 64 bit? How better would this system be to manage big files? Any help will be appreciated! Thanks, Leandro

Answer:More than 4gb of RAM on T400 plus Intel Turbo Memory

1) I assume you talk about the turbo memory? In that case the answer is yes you can buy the 4gb turbo memory and it's not that expensive, but i don't think you will notice much difference. I would rather buy more memory. I read that several people had issues because of instability with the turbo memory, but i had no such issues. Compared to my previous W500 which is almost identical to my current W500 except from the turbo memory and a CPU that is a bit faster i cannot say that i notice a difference with or without the turbo memory. 2) You can buy and install 2x4gb, but it's still pretty expensive. If you look at the price from Kingston i think the price is about 10 times higher for a 4gb module compared to the 2gb module. I think there are others that is pretty much cheaper then Kingston, but still pretty expensive. I do believe Micron is much cheaper then Kingston. 3) I'm not familiar with the applications you use and how you use the computer, but using 32bits OS you will not be able to use more then max 3gb of ram. If you have switchable graphics enabled it's only 2.5gb using 32bit Vista. If you disable the switchable graphics and use the ATI video adapter you should get 3gb. With a 64bit OS you should get 4gb of ram in either case. I don't think 64bit Vista will be able to handle big files any better except for the fact that you have more physical ram available. So unless you need more then 3gb or ram (or 2.5 using switchable graphics) the 32bit Vista should han... Read more

I completely forgot that I ordered my T500 with this option. I recall reading somewhere that having an SSD (which I do) does not necessitate the use of this feature (2GB cache) and might even be harmful. Is this true? Getting an edge on performance however possible is always a good thing in my opinion and if it doesn't harm / hinder performance, I might as well utilize it. Insight would be appreciated. Thanks!

Answer:Intel Turbo Memory + SSD = Trouble?

Assuming the SSD does not conflict with the Turbomemory drivers I do not see a reasy why it would be required to disable this feature.   However, it may not yeild as much performance improvement as it would on a typical HDD.   I have used an SSD in my T500 and never disabled my turbomemory without any issues. Keep in mind I have never experienced any issued with turbomemory as some users have seen, and it does in fact increase the performance of my system quite dramaticly.

Has anyone added the Intel Turbo Memory half height mini pc card (4GB) to their W500?  Can you just plug it in and install latest drivers, or are additional things needed?    Does it help?  Does user-pinning work? 

Answer:Intel Turbo Memory and W500

I have the 2 GB Turbo Memory card that shipped with my W500 (model 4062-27U).  It seems to work just fine, when you install the driver for it, a little application from Intel appears that allows you to turn it on or off.  The application notes state that the "user pinning" function is not supported in the latest (Vista) release - presumably this is because the driver is smart enough to figure out what to keep ready in the memory stash on the card and what to discards.I have no idea if this little card makes the computer work better or not, all I can say is that I have never encountered any problems with it.  I use Vista Business 32 as my OS.

I am planning to purchase an X61 very shortly.  When I go through the forum, I kept reading complaints from different people that their new X61 (with Vista Business) are not stable.  And most of the time, the recommendation is to install a new Intel Turbo Memory driver.  This leads me to think that the Intel Turbo Memory may not be very stable with Vista Business.  I understand that this option can boost the performance but there is no point of having it if the hanging/blue screen can happen as frequent as once per day.My question is that does the Intel Turbo Memory driver problem happens very frequently and whether the performance boost worths the risk of getting an unstable workstation?Regards,khycheun

Answer:Is Intel Turbo Memory a good option to add?

the intel turbo option is a good option to have if you got the money for it. you could acheive the same performance with an alternative by using vista's new "Readyboost" option, this feature allows you to use your extra flash drive to improve/add more virtual ram at your disposal. if you go with the turbo memory option, download the latest driver to make the computer up to date. i haven't experienced any more problem after installing all the necessary updates as well as driver.

When configuring a W500, you're presented with the option of adding Intel Turbo Memory 2GB for an additional $50.00.  The W510, however, has no such option.  Why not?  I checked tabook.pdf and didn't see any discussion of this.

Answer:why did the W510 remove Intel Turbo Memory?

It's outdated technology, not part of the i7 chipset. It was only for Centrino and Core 2 CPUs.

The little 1GB Turbo Memory on my 4GB RAM system was of little use.  So I had the great idea of buying the 4GB Turbo Memory card so I could use User Pinning.  Unfortunately, I didn't read that it only works with the ICH9M  Serial ATA controller - my system has the ICH8M controller (which only works with the 1GB module). Now I've got the 4GB Turbo Memory module installed but neither ReadBoost or ReadyDrive are usable. Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions now to make this work?  It's a type 6459 T61. ThanksHerschel

Answer:Intel Turbo Memory 4GB on T61 ICH8M Controller

In Thailand, There's someone that can use ITM4GB with T61, ICH8M chipset but It can use ReadyDrive only (ReadyBoost not work!). You may try this step 1. Update Intel Matrix Storage Manager Driver at  http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-70477 2. Double Click Install will extract files to C:\DRIVERS\WIN\IMSM\PREPARE3. Double Click at install.exe4. Restart, press and hold F1 key and Config Sata -> ACHI5. Save & Exit Restart & Give a try With ITM4GB, you can use ITM Dashboard to configure application you want to ITM load, so these app will run faster and they also claim that battery usage time is up about a hour. I don't know it will work for your case or not. Good Luck...

Windows 7 and using Intel Turbo Memory (Robson) as a persistent RAM






Quote:
What I am about to describe below definitely falls under the 'unsupported' and 'not-an-intended-use' category for Intel Turbo Memory. I debated about posting this for a few months but it has worked well enough for me that I feel secure in describing how to do this. Of course, if something breaks, please let me know in the comments section and we'll get it documented.

Typically Intel Turbo Memory is included as a mini-PCIe option on laptops and some desktops, and provides an embedded version of ReadyBoost and/or ReadyDrive. Most computers have enough RAM these days so the boost from ReadyBoost is pretty minimal.

With that in mind, I figured I would try to see if I could re-purpose the Turbo Memory. In Windows 7 (as of driver version 1.10.0.1012), the memory is exposed to the OS as a Storage Controller with a disk volume of IMD-0.

By default, it will automatically enable and control the entire volume.

What you want to do is open diskmgmt.msc and look for a volume that is about 75% of advertised size of the RAM. In my case, I have 2GB which shows up as 1.37GB due to some of the space being used for ReadyDrive.

If you set the View to Disk List, the Device Type will be listed as UNKNOWN instead of IDE or USB or SCSI.

You'll want to delete this volume but make sure it is the Turbo Memory! After deleting the volume, create a new simple MBR volume from what you just delete... Read more

Answer:Windows 7 using Intel Turbo Memory (Robson) as RAM

I apologize for the necro, but there's no other forum on the internet that discusses this, and I'm quite interested in it.

I'm also using the driver listed in his instructions, however in my case, Device Manager doesn't list a disk volume of IMD-0 under my Turbo Memory Storage Controller. Likewise, there is no additional UNKNOWN device type in Disk Management, whether I set the View option to be Disk List or anything else.

Perhaps it's because my Turbo Memory is 4GB while the author of those instructions is using a 2GB unit.

I think there is no preinstalled Intel Trubo Memory software when i bought this laptop.

Thanks!

Answer:Re: Can I install Intel Turbo Memory on Satellite L40?

Hi

What L40 do you have exactly? I asked it because the L40 would need some additinal feutures to support the Intel Turbo Memory.

_The Intel Turbo Memory supports the following Intel chipsets:_
? Mobile Intel? 4 Series Express Chipset family
? Intel? 4 Series Chipsets
? Intel? 3 Series Express Chipset family
? Mobile Intel? GM965 Express Chipset
? Mobile Intel? PM965 Express Chipset

_The chipset must be using one of the following controllers:_
? Intel? ICH10R Serial ATA AHCI controller hub
? Intel? ICH9M/ICH9M-E Serial ATA AHCI controller hub
? Intel? 82801IR Serial ATA AHCI controller hub (ICH9R)
? Intel? 82801IR Serial ATA RAID controller hub (ICH9R)
? Intel? 82801HBM Serial ATA AHCI controller hub (ICH8M)
? Intel? 82801HEM Serial ATA AHCI controller hub (ICH8M-E)

You should firstly check if your hardware would support the Intel Turbo Memory feature.

What OS do you have installed on your Satellite L40?
Some high end model notebooks have Intel Turbo Memory installed which is designed to increase performance for the Microsoft Vista operating system.
So this Intel Turbo Memory feature is available ONLY using the Vista!

I have a T61p 6459-A12. I want to install the Intel 1GB Turbo Memory into it. Is anyone able to assist me in determining where this module fits into the system, so that I can confirm whether or not I will have to remove any other component already installed in order to install the Intel 1GB Turbo Memory?I have read that it goes into the same slot as the WWAN module. I'm fairly certain that my unit does not have the WWAN module (as I believe if it did there would be an LED status light underneath the LCD screen inbetween the Bluetooth and Number Lock light - which my unit does not have). Does this definately mean that I should have a free spot in my unit to instal the Intel 1GB Turbo Memory?

Answer:T61p - installing Intel Turbo Memory 1GB into

Hi twr7cx, You are correct! The Turbo Memory module would go where the WWAN card would be - which from what you stated, you do not have installed as you would have the indicator light below the LCD. Just look for the Hardware Maintenance Manual/System Documentation from Lenovo's site and it will show you where it goes.  It's usually on the left middle side of the system (when looking from the LCD). I hope this helps and good luck! -Kamika007z

Hi, I have a Lenovo X301, which were all SSD drive systems. I was looking at the Intel Turbo Memory card as their is a free slot for one next to the WWAN card, and I have noticed that the Support on Lenovo :: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-67820 state that the X300 and X301 are supported for the Turbo Memory (no X300 or X301 came with anything other than a Solid State Disk) though in notes it says; It is not recommended to use Intel Turbo Memory in a system with a SSDdrive. It would be ideal to remove the Intel Turbo Memory module from thesystem, if SSD drive is used.Seems to conflict, as the X301 is supported but the X301 only has an SSD option. So the question is can I use Intel Turbo Memory, and if so why do Lenovo advise against it in an SSD system.

Answer:Thinkpad X301 and Intel Turbo Memory

there is no point installing the turbo memory if you already have the ssd. it is not going to produce any speed improvement. 
 
I had tried to install the turbo memory in my X301 with the ssd, i didn't get any error as such, but it also didn't get any performance improvements either. 
 
Lenovo advise against it due to the fact that it may produce hardware conflicts in certain circumstances.

Dear Crew,

On a Centrino Pro lappie I'm running what's essentially streamlined Vista -- the new Win Server 2008 release candidate. This is a great system, by the way -- much more stable than Vista x64 SP1 RC, which spontaneously deleted its entire CurrentControlSet reg key the last time I installed it! (Go figure.)

The Intel drivers are holding up, but I'm seeing weird default settings that have me scratching my head. Does anyone have a clearer perspective on these issues?

Before all else, though, what are the best Intel forums on the net?

The first issue is L2 caching. One tweak site...
http://www.liutilities.com/products/registrybooster/tweaklibrary/tweaks/11420/

...pointed to a Vista registry key that supposedly describes L2 cache access by Vista / Server...
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\]

...and the value you check is SecondLevelDataCache. If it's set to 0, L2 caching is off. Mine's set to 0. (Is yours?) So why is this set to 0 by default? The answers I've heard so far range from: 1) Vista just takes whatever Intel outputs, so in effect this reg entry is bypassed (and a red herring), to 2) This reg entry is only for circumstances where the L2 cache is so small that it needs a software supplement -- so a large on-board cache would be set to a default of 0. That latter answer doesn't square with the tweak site's suggestion that the larger the cache, the larger a value th... Read more

Answer:Intel L2 cache & Turbo Memory quirkiness in Vista

L2 cache is built into the processor and caches data for faster access by the CPU.
It is normally controlled at the BIOS level.
If it was disabled,you would see a major slow down in the operating system.

ready boost normally only becomes available when a compatable device
is connected.

Don't know about the NVCACHE,sounds like a hybrid hard drive.

While Intel Turbo Memory should not be used with SSD drives, should it be used with hybrid drives, such as the 2nd-generation Momentus XT with 8GB of NAND SLC?  What effects would using Intel Turbo Memory with a hybrid drive have on battery life and performance?  Thanks.

Answer:Intel Turbo Memory & Momentus XT Hybrid Drive?

I looked into getting one of these drives, ended up deciding it was a very bad idea. To me the three most important things with a drive are Data integrity Data integrity Data integrity Speed and performance being a distant 4th, and these hybrids seem to have a lot of problems from the reviews I've read. Many report system hanging, buggy firmware, and other such problems. Your basically getting something experimental, if you really need speed that badly, I'd recommend an Intel SSD, they are pretty much the only ones that don't get bad reviews. As for your turbo mem, it is already a hybrid drive, so having your firmware in a hybrid drive AND intels software fighting over where your important files belong, you're sure to have problems, and if you use the turbo ram you can still use a traditional, more reliable harddrive, and if that isn't enough performance, then I'd grab an Intel ssd, looking for something inbetween will likely end up badly for you. That's my opinion, but please read a lot of reviews and decide for yourself.

I have a t400 with 2gb turbo memory card.First I wanted to know whether there is any difference between downloading the turbo memory driver from the lenovo download site or Intel's?Second, I have downloaded the driver from the intel's website (INVM_ENU.exe) then installed it with the -UP switch which as is mentioned in http://www.intel.cc/design/flash/nand/turbomemory/316979.pdf will bring theuser pinning for 2gb cards as a one-time substitution for ready-boost.I then added some applications to the turbo memory with turbo memory dashboard to be accelerated. However I cannot sense any difference. I have 7200rpm hdd. Has anybody done the same thing and felt any difference?Moreover how does "user pinning" compare to Readyboost overally? thnx

Answer:Installing a new Hard Drive and intel turbo memory help

Replacing a hard drive is quite easy. You have two removeable panels on the bottom of the laptop. The smaller panel close to the "Dolby Home Theater" logo is where the hard drive is. Just remove the screw and pull the panel off. Then slide the hard drive out away from the SATA connector. In that same area is a second mini-PCI Express slot for which you can install an Intel Turbo Memory module.

I was wondering as I've got 2 spare slot Mini PCI-Express free on my laptop, if such Intel Card (ITM) could fit inside...This technology is quite not expensive actually.

The mini PCI-E is very ease to access under my keyboard and it just have to be inserted, and at system reboot, Windows7 will recognize straight that card and the proper Intel Turbo drivers.

It does act like "Windows ReadyBoost" & "Windows ReadyDrive" under 7 and Vista...so the system will load faster....boost the disk cache, load faster Apps & perform battery improvement.

Work on "Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset familly" & "Mobile Intel 4 Express Chip Familly".

-1 gb (RD, RB, no software pinning),
-2gb (RD, RB, no software pinning),
-4gb (RD, no RB, software pinning).

Any experience in return? or it is just like inserting a SD Card in the Card Reader to Ready Boost?

Is it possible to install mSATA SSD into this slot?The question is not about dimentions (it's hard to find haf-sized mSATA SSD that fills the place for Intel module), but about electical/BIOS/software compatibility.

Answer:R500. Installing mSATS SSD into Intel Turbo Memory slot.

it won't work. The mPCIe slot in the R500 won't be compatible with the mSATA standard. It is a hardware limitation.

This is getting very frusturating.  Bought my T61 in March and I have been getting BSOD since I bought it. However, they are now more frequent and occur more than once a day. I am using Windows Vista Ultimate.  I do not have Intel Turbo Memory and I am using the integrated graphics. This is the BSOD message: Problem signature:  Problem Event Name:    BlueScreen  OS Version:    6.0.6001.2.1.0.256.1  Locale ID:    1033Additional information about the problem:  BCCode:    19  BCP1:    0000000000000020  BCP2:    FFFFF88006E69FB0  BCP3:    FFFFF88006E69FD0  BCP4:    0000000005020105  OS Version:    6_0_6001  Service Pack:    1_0  Product:    256_1

Answer:BSOD, T61 with integrated graphics and no Intel Turbo Memory hardware

I'd talk with Lenovo customer support. It may be something really simple and I hope it is.

I've been surfing around and didn't find any sites on the topic. I didn't even find any Y410 configurations with turbo Memory. I think it is sufficient to say that Turbo memory isn't really supported on a Y410. But, as I am also about to end my lenovo 1 yr warranty this Oct. Is there a way to install a Intel turbo Memory module on my Y410. Please disregard any discussion on performance benefits as this is just a question to quell my curiosity. I don't believe I will be needing the Turbo Memory anyway as i have 4 GB already installed on my system. Thanks for anyone replying to this question. Cheers!

Answer:Not so important Question: Can Intel Turbo Memory be installed on a Y410?

Turbo memory performed itself as useless technology.It is as rare as blue mushroom with green dots, violet inside.It is placed in mini-PCIE slot in notebooks and has drivers only for Vista as far as I know, since only Vista handles it.Having 4 Gb RAM is making this improvement even more useless as it is in fact. Below zero.HTH

Did a clean install on my Vaio laptop (VPCF11LFX) of Win 7 64 bit Ultimate. Before I had a program under Control Panel/Program and Features called Intel Turbo Boost Technology Driver. Now I don't. I can't find out what this program is or what it's purpose is. Is it even necessary as my laptop seems to be running fine. I found the latest version (I think) and it seemed to load but when I checked, it didn't show up under Programs and Features. Any info would be helpful.

When I tried a "Complete PC-Backup" with the Vista Backup utility, that is included in Vista Business and Ultimate, it stopped immediatly with the error message
"Not all volumes containing system data are included in the backup. (0x80780018)".

A long investigation revealed the following cause:
- my machine (Lenovo Thinkpad X61s) has a built in Intel Turbo Memory chip (flash storage) that shows up as a Partition of 500 MB (formatted FAT32) named NVCACHE and as an entry in the device manager under "Disks" as Drive IMD-0
- Vista Backup can only backup NTFS partitions
- it seems, that Vista Backup tries to save this NVCACHE partition and fails because of the wrong format (FAT32). It is obviously nonsense to backup NVCACHE, which is a cache, but you cannot opt out.

Workaround
1. Start "intel Turbo Memory Console", found at "All Programms" after clicking the Start button
2. Disable ReadyBoost (ReadyDrive can be left on) and reboot (NVCACHE and IMD-0 are gone now)
3. Now the "Complete PC-Backup" works
4. Enable ReadyBoost again and reboot

For a clean solution the bug in Vista Backup must be fixed. Or maybe within the Turbo Memory Driver.

Note: The "File Backup" function within the Vista Backup utility is not affected and works when ReadyBoost is on.

This issue was discovered with the following machine:

Here is the problem I have.

I am a "proud owner" of a DX58SO "Smackover" Intel Motherboard, which so far hasn't disappointed me, but I have some serious issues which are rather annoying.

1. Boot times are slow. Really. I Googled for a solution and I found others have been complaining of this as well. Seems like DX58SO is a notorious slow booter.
2. My Razer Naga mouse never gets detected properly. Who knows why, it's just an issue I am mentioning for others who will find this thread after me. My Razer Anansi Keyboard works fine, though. Do figure.

Now, the main problem I am coming here for is to ask if Windows Ready Boost on Windows 7, which I already use to speed up my Windows will conflict with Intel Turbo Memory, which is supposed to also help speed up boot times. Is it really worth it to use ? How much gain will Intel Turbo Memory give me in regards to boot times ? Anyone got any experience with this ?

Just on a side note, since Razer Support have been very reluctant to answer this question, is plugging my Razer Naga mouse into a Powered USB Port going to hurt its extended functionality, like Macro Recording and Key Mapping ?

I would be very grateful for any input you can give me on these issues.

Here are my system specs.

Hello all this's my second post for help on this site, while looking around the net for more unnecessary driver's to disable, I stumbled across something interesting.

The topic relate's to the I/i series processor's and it's turbo boost driver, when reading the thread I noticed one of the commenters saying "Newer I series processors do not need the TB driver, its built into the processor now.", that really piqued my interest, seeing as I use one these I/i series processor's on my laptop and always figured that the Turbo Boost Technology Driver would be a necessary software component to have so my processor would be able to initiate it's "safe overclocking" function that made me decide to purchase a machine with a "I" processor in the first place.

The commenter also claimed that the 2nd Generation i7 series for sure wouldn't need to utilize the driver for turbo boost to work anyway. I just happened to be using one of the second gen i7 processor's and was wondering if I could disable the aforementioned driver and still utilize "turbo boost" as apparently turbo boost was already "Built In" to my processor, and doe's not require Intel(R) Turbo Boost Driver to function, typing this just make's me dubious and confused about the commenters claim, doesn't "Built-In" refer to the driver itself, or was the commenter getting at something else?

Answer:Tips for blue screen (BSOD) errors with Windows Vista and Intel Turbo Memory

Hey guys, Yesterday I got a BSOD when trying to boot from hibernation.  It dumped the physical memory and I thought it would restart and boot just fine; it didn't.  It tried to reboot but gave me an error message saying that the "iaNvStor.sys" file was the culprit.  I also received some intel messages while trying to boot that said stuff like "hardware not responding" and "check cable" (not in those exact words).  Anyway I found a post on NotebookReview.com that addressed this particular problem.  See link: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=205725 Long story short, I got my pc to boot through the help of multiple forums and tuts (basically I did what they said on the forum above but I had to find a way to make a vista install cd boot from a jumpdrive since I don't have a disc drive), but I am worried that I won't have complete use of my Turbo Memory.  I am still considering doing a fresh install of Vista and the required lenovo drivers but I also want the most up to date Turbo Memory drivers and from the looks of the above forum they are still working out the bugs in the turbo memory boot stuff.  If you guys have had any similar problems or can get more up to date info on the Turbo Memory and Vista I would be really interested in what you know, especially those of you that have extensive knowledge of the new intel mobos and cpu's.  Again any response is greatly appreciated. Thanks,Ash P.S.- I see ...

If you have another turbo memory module, try substituting them. It might be a bad one. This happened to a friend on a couple systems. I'm not sure if the error was the same or not. I have turbo ram in both of my T61/T61p and have no problems, but I'm going to remove it now that I have SSD drives. You don't want to use these with SSD. ps. I'd check Intel support, see if they have an app to test the modules.

I'm having a problem with this driver in Windows 7. When I view my devices, there are exclamation points on these:

1) Intel(R) Turbo Boost Technology
Manufacturer: Intel
Location: PCI bus 0, device 31, function 6
Device status: This device cannot start. (Code 10)

2) Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter
Manufacturer: Microsoft
Location: Unknown
Device status: This device cannot start. (Code 10)

I tried to troubleshoot thru Windows 7 by re-installing the drivers of both. However, both installations failed. What seems to be the problem with my system.

What should be the effect of these "troubles"? How will I resolve these issues?

Hi, everyone:
I bought an Intel SSD 530 120G for my laptop several days ago. It worked well with the OS Win8.1 Pro x64.
When I paid attention to the NAND writes, something make me confused.

The situation is as follow:
The SSD with the OS is the first(primary) Disk, and the HDD is the second one. I have moved the cache of IE, chrome and Firefox to the Hard Drive using IE setting or mklink command, and verified it correctly. With the explorer working, the written data stream from cache is produced in the HDD partition theoretically, also I have got this conclusion through the System's Resource Monitor and the Diskmon from Microsoft website. When I cached several Movies embedded in any explorer without other operation separately, there are lots of written data traffic produced in the HDD partition, and just little data wrote in system disk(SSD), it?s no doubt. Finally, each test(using one kind of explorer) improved less than 200Mb in Total Host Writes which is normal for system operating, but this process also consumed about 3Gb SSD's Total NAND writes in total in the CrystalDiskInfo 6.0.1. Also I have got the same result with the newly Intel SSD Toolbox, AIDA64 3.20 and CrystalDiskInfo 6.0.1. In fact, this written data traffic produced by explorer's cache in HDD is calculated into the SSD's total NAND writes.

Actually I'm not care of the SSD's wear, and I'm sure it couldn't reach the limited lifespan with normal usage until next generation product arrives. This accidental ... Read more

Answer:Intel SSD 530 Total NAND Writes Problem in Win8.1 x64

Hi, guys,
There are some supplementary data.
I have tested the total NAND writes in OS win7 x64 newly installed with the all x64 drivers, the chrome cache is moved to HDD partition, and the result is same as the one in win8.1. When the Value of Host Writes improved just one, namely 1*32Mb total host writes, there are almost 2Gb added to the total NAND writes. Followed is the graph from which we could get the monitoring data and the disk activity.
Finally, I speculate that there is a bug in the Intel 530 SSD firmware, DC22, if nohing wrong is in the testing environment.
Fig. 1 The beginning test capture.

Fig. 2 The final capture. The host writes improved 1, and the total NAND write nearly 2Gb, compared with the first graph.

Thank you for helping.

I bought a Turbo Memory card recently.It is a half size card, with Lenovo FRU: 43Y6523 After installing the drivers, the device manager says, the card cannot be started, Failure code 10.This happenes with intel and Lenovo drivers on both mini Pcie slots. X100e,  4 GB Ram, Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Answer:X100e: Turbo Memory, driver cannot start

Does the X100e even support Turbo Memory?

i want to buy a laptop, but i want one with nand flash memory, so no moving parts, as in, no hard disc; and a physical qwerty keyboard to a lesser extent, i would like 1 gig of ram and preferably vista, but thats not essential i wouldnt mind also, if it had reasonably good specs, so that it might run some graphics software, albeit slowly, like photoshop, adobe premiere, or even a 3d modelling software like autodesk 3ds max. although maybe this isnt possible, because i would prefer to keep the cost down to around £700. i could go higher in price. do you know of a list of laptops, with flash memory, and qwerty keys, so i could compare them.? most humble regards tregg ps, i dont care about style, looks, or how heavy it is. also, it can be a ultra mobile pc, as long as it has a docking station, so i can hook it to a dvd drive.

Answer:which nand flash memory laptop should i buy.

Flash memory hard drives are very new to the market & will cost you alot, if you can find one to buy!

Hey guys, I upgraded to windows 7 over vista the other day and I just noticed a problem. I have the Intel Turbo Memory Readyboost and it used to work perfectly with Vista, but I just opened the window where you enable/disable it, and it said it was disabled, so i enabled it and it asked me to restart my computer so I did, and when I restarted I went back just to make sure it was enabled and it is still disabled. I tried it again and same thing happened... anyone know why or how to fix it?? Thanks.

-Taylor

Answer:Intel Turbo Memory keeps reverting back to "Disabled"

It certainly appears to be having a problem. Is there a Win 7 driver?

It sounds like you did an upgrade from Vista, maybe some driver was brought along that is not compatible with Win 7.
