Looking into buying the Lenovo Ideapad 510s, I see "Up to 8GB" listed as supported memory. However, I've done some research and some Lenovo laptops, while they also only support 8GB of memory officially, can be and have been safely upgraded to 16 GB of RAM. My question is: Is this true of the 510s? The CPU specifications page from Intel for the 6200U/6500U both say 16 GB is no problem, and Crucial even has a 16GB dimm listed as "guaranteed compatible" for this model--I'm not sure, though, if this means it will work but only recognize 8 GB or if 16 GB is truly Ok. Is there any reason 16 GB could not be used? Perhaps some motherboard memory controller limitation? I would love to have some input on this before deciding on whether or not to purchase this laptop. Thanks!

Answer:Maximum Supported RAM in HP PAV 15 - AB551TX i7

From the notebook's manual, it supports 16GB. When you configure it prior to purchase, that would be the best time to make sure it had 16GB.   Upgrading the memory on your own involves some risk since it requires a great deal of disassembly of the notebook to access the soDIMM slots. "MemoryTwo SODIMM slots - NON customer accessible / upgradeableDDR3L-1600 Dual Channel SupportSupports up to 16 GB of system RAM in the followingconfigurations:?16384-MB total system memory (8192×2)?12288-MB total system memory (8192×1) + (4096×1)?8192-MB total system memory (8192×1) or (4096×2)?6144-MB total system memory (4096×1) + (2048×1)?4096-MB total system memory (4096×1) or (2048×2)"

I have a 5 - 6 year old Compaq Presario 5900T desktop with an Intel Pentium III 733 MHz processor and Windows XP SP2. The last BIOS update for it was released in 03-06-2001 and is installed.

According to the HP and Crucial site, the maximum supported amount of RAM is 384 MB. The Crucial site does make note that a BIOS update can alter that amount.

According to the Kingston and MemoryX sites, the maximum supported amount of RAM is 768 MB.

I currently have 320 MB of RAM(128 - 128 - 64) in this computer. Because I now have Windows XP SP2 in it instead of Windows 98SE, I would like to increase the RAM amount to 512 MB by replacing the 64 MB module with a 256 MB module.

Does anyone out there have personal knowledge if this computer does support 768 MB of RAM before I go through the trouble and expense of buying and installing a 256 MB module?

Based on the spec of U410 the maximum supported memory is "8GB max/ PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3, non-parity,dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets - * System automatically clocks down for processors with 1333MHz DDR3 memory controller". Based on this the maximum memory to be used in a system is dependent on the processor used.

As in title, how much can those models support? i've found only 4gb U310 model, while it seems that U410 can have up to 8gb.

Answer:Maximum ram supported U310 and U410

HiAccording to crucial, 8gb is maximum for both u310 and u410.The only difference is that u410 has two ram slots and u310 has one slotHttp://www.crucial.com/upgrade/Lenovo-memory/IdeaPad/IdeaPad+U410-upgrades.htmlHttp://www.crucial.com/upgrade/Lenovo-memory/IdeaPad/IdeaPad+U310-upgrades.html

Hi,

I have a Toshiba Satellite A500-19X with Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium. It came with 4GB DDR3 1066 MHZ RAM. Can anyone let me know the the maximum supported RAM for this hardware and OS configuration.

Regards,
Vivek

Answer:Satellite A500-19X - What is the maximum supported RAM?

Hi buddy,

You can answer this question yourself!!!

I have checked the specifications for this notebook on the Toshiba website and you can upgrade the RAM to 8GB. Therefore you need DDR3 RAM (1,066 MHz) and two 4GB modules. They should be from the same manufacture to avoid incompatibility issues.

Hi Everyone! Would like to seek anyone's opinion/assitance regarding my laptop's issue. I have year old Lenovo z500 with GT650m GPU 4 days ago my cousin accidentally spilled his glass full of Milo on my laptop, fortunately I was able to remove the battery on time and dry everything up after 24 hours it was already up and running again but I have an issue with the games that I usually play on average FPS performance. Before the spill I was playing Final Fantasy 14 with FPS averaging around 45-60, once I run the game I could feel the fan picking up speed, power and starts to heat up. After the spill it seems that the dedicated GPU is not being utilized I only get around 15-19 FPS on the average. Settings on NVIDIA Control Panel for Power Management is already at Maximum Power Powerformance, Power Management is also at its Maximum. Hope someone can help

Hi, I ordered PAVALION 15-AU116TX laptop and I have below questions for the Memory upgrade. 1) It has 7th Gen Core i5 and I went through the specs for that(http://ark.intel.com/products/95443/Intel-Core-i5-7200U-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-3_10-GHz). It clearly says that processor can support upto 32GB of RAM. - When I checked with HP Consumer support they informed me that maximum supported memory is 16GB only. Can you please clarify on this? 2) If I install additional memory(considering it'll support 32GB, I'm planning to add 16GB of additional memory) will my warranty be void? 3) What is the motherboard configuration with above laptop? Regards,Ankur

Answer:HP PAVALION 15-AU116TX(Maximum supported Memory)

@ankurtr? Your correct that 16GB is the maximum memory supported for your laptop. As far as warranty goes some say it would void the warranty some say it would not. I think of it as this if you add the memory yourself and nothing gets damaged then the warranty is still good. But if you damage something doing it yourself then the Damage is not covered. REO

Answer:Ideacentre700-24ISH - Maximum Supported Memory

Hi NF1  
 
 
Greetings. 
 
Recommended maximum RAm for your pc is 16 GB ,  
Your Intel processor is capable to handle 32GB but just stay with the 16GB manufacturer recommendation for a tested value and optimum performance .  
 
RAM specifications: (Intel)  DDR4 4G/8G/12G/16G  , 2 SODIMM up to 16G DDR4    
 
You may check (page 29) the ones you have on the system ( matching the label on the sticker of the RAM )  for best dual channelling for another 8G,SODIMM,DDR4,2133MHZ  
 
Similar thread here .
 
Regarding Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop you may need to check with the specific developer of those software for further ways and techniques to make it work faster similar to batch processing and the likes. 
 
Additional concern is ram usage without opening any applications on Windows 10  .  It might be for a different topic if that is the case and different solutions may apply similar to this. 
 
Hope this answered your query. 
 
 
Regards

I'm researching upgrades for a friend who owns this PC. According the product specs on HP's site, the computer accepts up to 1GB of RAM (2x512MB). The motherboard has two DIMM slots. Why can they each not accept a 1GB module? In fact, the motherboard specs say, "Support up to maximum 2 GB memory (PC manufacturer's maximum memory may differ)." What is it about this machine that limits it to 1GB of RAM? Is this some sort of addressing limitation in the processor? (I've been trying to look that one up; so far I haven't found anything; I'll continue searching.)

I am trying to find out the maximum supported memory for Thinkpad W500, machine type 4063-A74. Lenovo web site provides conflicting information. According to http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-71785#mem, it is 4 GB. According to http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-55644#w, it is 8 GB. Can anyone provide an authoritative answer before I spend hundreds of dollars for a memory upgrade that may not be supported? Thank you.

Answer:Thinkpad W500 maximum supported memory

it is 8 gig of ddr3 ram so far, but in the future maybe it will be 16 gig. The maximum ram figures offered by Lenovo and IBM are based on the current inproduction ram modules, so when the laptop was first released there were only 2 gigs module made, which then upgraded to 4 gigs of ram and hopefully 8 gigs modules (probably is going to cost a fair bit).

Looking into buying the Lenovo 510s, I see "Up to 8GB" listed as supported memory. However, I've done some research and some Lenovo laptops, while they also only support 8GB of memory officially, can be and have been safely upgraded to 16 GB of RAM. My question is: Is this true of the 510s? The CPU specifications page from Intel for the 6200U/6500U both say 16 GB is no problem, and Crucial even has a 16GB dimm listed as "guaranteed compatible" for this model--I'm not sure, though, if this means it will work but only recognize 8 GB or if 16 GB is truly Ok. Is there any reason 16 GB could not be used? Perhaps some motherboard memory controller limitation? I would love to have some input on this before deciding on whether or not to purchase this laptop. Thanks!

Hello, I consider buying a new notebook and T420 is a hot candidate for me. I'm not sure yet whether I would go for a Core i5 or i7 processor, however I'm sure I'd like to upgrade the RAM in the future and 16 GB would be very appreciated. I found out in the Intel specifications that (not only) the i5 2540 and i7 2640 that are available in the T420 configurations support up to 16 GB RAM, however in the T420 specifications concerning those processors I found that only 8 GB of RAM are supported. AFAIK the memory controller is integrated in the processor in these cases, so is there another factor that limits the size to 8 GB, or is it only an improper information in the T420 specs? I plan to keep the notebook for several years so the possibility of some reasonable memory upgrade would be a very welcome for me. Thanks in advance for any info on that.

Answer:T420 - maximum supported memory size?

Here is an unofficial answer.  I am not speaking on behalf of Lenovo. 
The T420 has 2 memory (DIMM) slots.  Technically the system can accept 16GB of memory (2x 8GB DIMMs).  I know this because the SMBIOS type 16 structure says so.  But I don't think 8GB DIMMs are available to buy yet, and even if they are, they are not available from Lenovo so at this time the max supported configuration today is 8GB.  I think it is safe to assume that, at some point in the future, 16GB will be supported.

Hi,

I have a Satellite A100-626 with 2Gb of RAM memory.

As stated in specs for this model:
standard : 1,024 (512+512) MB
maximum expandability : 4,096 MB
technology : DDR2 RAM (533 MHz)
expansion module sizes : 256, 512, 1,024 MB

It says that it can go up to 4Gb, but only shows module sizes up to 1Gb. (maybe 2Gb modules didn't existed at the time).
Anyone knows or tested if it is possible to install 2 modules of 2Gb or 1 module of 4Gb to reach the maximum expandability of 4Gb?
Also, does it supports frequency's up to 800MHz? If not, whats the maximum value?
And at last, does DDR3 work on this model?

Thanks in advance for the replys.

Answer:Satellite A100-626 - Maximum system memory supported?

Hi

I found this Toshiba product page:
[Satellite A100-626|http://pt.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/jsp/SUPPORTSECTION/discontinuedProductPage.do?service=PT&DISC_MODEL=0 &ACTION=PRINT_WITH_BACK&BV_UseBVCookie=yes&PRODUCT _ID=119571]


It?s a Portuguese Toshiba page because I believe that this notebook model was designed for Portuguese market.
There you can find a info that it?s possible to upgrade the RAM to 4GB (2 x 2Gb RAM).

But note; the 32bit Operating system will be not able to use the full 4GB RAM.
Just the 6bit OS can use and recognize the full 4GB

> Also, does it supports frequency's up to 800MHz?
This depends on the chipset. If the chipset would allows the 800Mhz then the memory module would run at 800Mhz? otherwise they would be clocked down.

> And at last, does DDR3 work on this model?
No, as far as I know just DDR2 modules are supprted.

I really don't want to experiment if its true. More often than not initial technical responses I've received over the years from DELL have been wrong so it pays to be persistant until convinced.
I'd like to put 2-8GB chips in it betting that additional RAM will speed up screen regenerations given the video processor is what it is. Anyway, if anyone knows if what Dell is telling me is fact please chime in? If anybody knows for sure this laptop and OS is incapable of addressing 16GB please let me know? 
If it will accept them I'd like an informed opinion about which speed would be preferred, 1333 or 1666. I understand faster is usually better but if there Is there a latency issue perhaps one is a better fit for this machine. If this is a total waste of time and money, I'd like to know that too.

As for the fan kicking in at power up, this is most likely a thermal design to keep the laptop running cool - unless you're hearing rattling / grinding noise that might indicate a faulty fan, otherwise, this is normal.
 
If you're leaning towards a new lenovo unit to use mostly with MS Word/Excel and web surfing, check out the U Series / S series models (if you're a typist, check out the S300)

Hi, I am in the market for a new laptop and have narrowed my choices to the Sony Vaio S here http://bit.ly/TAPlYC with Windows 8 Pro and 1 year of support as perhaps the only upgrades and the IdeaPad z500s here http://lnv.gy/WtWizp . I am upset that Lenovo does not offer the 7200 rpm option for the hard drive nor a higher screen resoltion. I personally think the 1920 x 1080 on the Viao S is a bit too high, but the 1366x768 of the z500 is way way way too low in my opinion. I want to love lenovo because the community seems great, but the lack of upgrade options is troubling.  Also, a more general question: I am a web developer that does php/html/css editing/developing using a text editor (not heavy ones like Dreamweaver), watches netflix and listens to things like Spotify. Are the HD 4000 Graphics good enough for me? I know RAM is helpful here, but I like to buy my own RAM because it's fun hunting for it (thats why I dont need an 8GB lenovo option to buy) Any thoughts/advice? Thanks, James

Answer:IdeaPad Z500 - low specs?

hi James,

Welcome to the Lenovo Community.

If you're leaning to the Lenovo Z500, the built-in HD 4000 graphics will be good enough for any php/html programming (especially if you use editors) as this embedded graphics card is on par with the AMD Radeon HD 7520G (based on 3D benchmark).

The screen size though is something that can't be customized but the HDD, you can. If you want fast boot-up,and response time pf your programs you might wanna consider switching to SSD as it's 2-3 times faster than a regular HDD and you can get an enclosure to convert your HDD as an external drive or make your system a hyrid drive (SSD as primary, HDD as secondary, you will need this:

Hello,I am thinking about purchasing an Ideapad Z500 and I would like to ask, if there is an empty slot for a mSATA SSD? I could not find any Z500 model with an SSD. I will appreciate any help on this topic. Thanks 

Answer:Ideapad Z500 - mSATA SSD??

I had a look in mine... no msata connector. The empty space and the solder pads are there on the board, but NO connector It looks like that the control chip for the (optional) msata port is missing as well. Now ordered a bay for the optical drive, including converter from msata to 2.5" sata.

Hi,
 
My one month old z500 fails to boot and gives an error message saying "DEFAULT BOOT DEVICE MISSING OR BOOT FAILED." 
 
This happened after i had to force my pc to shut down by pressing and holding the power button because it hadn't been responding for a while and I was only browsing on the web. When I attempted to restart it I encountered that error message
 
I suspect it's a hdd related problem because when I enter BIOS it says "not detected" in front of "Hard Disk" caption. That means hard disk is not recognized by BIOS. I tried one key recovery but it's useles cause nothing happens when I press okr button.
 
What do you think this is caused by and what should be done to recover my pc.
 
Thanks in advance...  Sorry for bad English.

Hi.I bought the Lenovo Ideapad Z500 and I'm trying to boot from a USB drive in order to install Windows on it.When I start the boot menu I only see the hard-drive, the DVD and the network.I tried to set both UEFI mode and Legacy mode in BIOS but the USB stick does not appear in the menu when I boot.I put the image of windows with Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool which formats the stick in NTFS mode.I have the latest BIOS v1.21 and I tried with 2 different USB sticks: one 16GB USB 2.0 Corsair and with a 32GB USB 3.0 ADATA both on USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports on the notebook.I really haven't seen anything like this in my entire career. I even downloaded the file efi\boot\BOOTX64.efi and replaced the one that Windows come with on the specified folder on the USB stick ....Why is so difficult to choose the USB boot drive on the newer notebooks?Does someone have a clue how can I boot from USB?Thanks in advance!  Bupitz

Answer:USB boot for Ideapad Z500

Hi,
 
I don't think I can be of much help, but a couple of things to try:  if your USB flash drive is formatted NTFS, it will only boot in legacy mode if it is bootable at all.  One thing you might try is to set the partition active if it isn't already.
 
If you want to boot in UEFI mode, format the flash drive with a single FAT32 partition.  Copy the contents of your install DVD to the flash drive.  If you're using an ISO copy the contents of the iso using a tool like 7zip.  UEFI bootabiliyt doesn't require using a special tool to prep the drive.  Just format it and copy the install medium to it.
 
Win7 requires CSM support in bios to boot successfully in UEFI mode.  That may always be enabled in UEFI mode or it may be a separate option in BIOS.

Hello!I bought my new Lenovo Ideapad Z500 only two weeks ago and since than it works fine, however yesterday it produced a very strange error. When I turn on my laptop it stops when the Lenovo logo shows up and freezes. The worst problem is that, it doesn't happen every time I turn it on, so when I bruoght it back to the shop, it was working fine again, and after I arrived home, it did the same error. It wasn't only a one time experience, I've tried it at least ten times, and it stopped on the Lenovo logo over and over again. I send it back to the service, however, I am curious whether I'm the only one facing with this weird issue or not. Thank you for your time!Best regards to all!

Answer:Ideapad Z500 won't start

Hi doma,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that the computer is hanging at Lenovo LOGO; this may be the issue with the bad sectors in the HDD, we are getting this issue for the first time. As you have sent it to the service center you need not worry the issue will be resolved.
 
Do post us back for further queries.
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Answer:Ideapad Z500 Gpu upgrade

Hi abodialansi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
This configuration with the RAM is OK
 
Based on the Datasheet of your model This can go to 8GB / 16GB
Ive highlighted the option you prefer with the RAM

 
About the Discrete NVIDIA GPU, Itis soldered to the Mainboard thus not letting any upgrade to it.
Upgrading the board means upgrading the whole Motherboard, which might not be preferred since it may only give you a minimal upgrade in terms of performance.
 
Hope this info helped
Cheers!

Hi, I have an IdeaPad z500. I have been facing issues with the wireless connectivity. In my room, at the same place, sometimes I get full bars and the internet works fine. But on some days it shows just 1 bar and the internet doesn't work. This is random behavior.  I checked with the Intel Driver update, the wireless driver is updated. It's Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230.

Hi all, I have an issue with my Lenovo Z500 touch. The USB 3.0 port on the left is not working. When I attach an external HDD, the HDD light is on, so it is powered, it is not seen by my pc.I have looked in the Device Manager and there's an error in the USB xHCI Compliant Host Controller. It says that the device cannot start. Tried to udate the driver, but it says that the driver is up to date. I have Windows 8.1. The other 2 USB 2.0 ports work fine. Any idea? Could be a driver problem? Here is the event in the Device manager: Device PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E31&SUBSYS_397717AA&REV_04\3&11583659&0&A0 had a problem starting.Driver Name: usbxhci.inf Thank you in advance. Michele

Answer:Ideapad z500 USB 3.0 not working

I uninstalled all the USB drivers, then rebooted. The Device Manager says that the USB controller works properly, however, the HDD is still not recognized.

I have an Ideapad Z500 running Windows 8.1 pro but get many problems such as "Reset your Pc not working "Insert Media Some files are missing.

Is it a simple uninstall Windows 8 and install Linux or are there complications?Failing that do I downgrade to Windows 7 (at more cost) or can you recommend some other option. Windows 8 is totally spoiled because of all the intrusive adverts, especially on XBox.

Hi,I have z500 ideapad with 6 GB ram,1TB HDD and i5 processor...could you please tell me till which memry system will support...shall I upgrade to 12 GB8gb and 4 GB in two slotsPlease adviceThanks,Rajesh

Answer:Z500 ideapad RAM upgrade

hi Rajesh,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
From page 26 of the HMM, the Z500 can take up to:
 
Standard  Memory ? DDR3-1600/1333MHz SODIMM × 2 (max 16 GB)
 
A 12GB (8GB+4GB) upgrade is also feasible but if the machine came with 4GB (2GBx2), I would go for an 8GB(4GBx2) or 16GB (8GBx2) depending on your needs and workload.
