Ideapad Yoga 13 SDXC compatible?

Question: Ideapad Yoga 13 SDXC compatible?

SDXC is not listed on the spec sheet so I assume the answer is no, but I figured I would check and see if someone could confirm before I purchase a smaller SDHC card. I would really like a 64GB card but don't want to shell out and have to return it.

Preferred Solution: Ideapad Yoga 13 SDXC compatible?

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.)

Answer: Ideapad Yoga 13 SDXC compatible?

I am using a 128GB card I got from Tiger Direct for about $84. It's formatted in exFAT because I need to use it in a MAC and this yoga. Works fine!

Answer:On Yoga 2 Pro, which types of SD memory cards are compatible, such as SDXC?

There are three form factors: standard, mini and micro.You need standard sized memory cards. See Wikipedia below.If you use micro SD or mini SD cards you need to use a adapter. Most micro and mini memory cards come with a adapter.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Digital

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

Answer: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.
 
Regards

Thanks in advance.

Has anyone imstalled a 64GB SDXC card and had any issies with it on the Yoga 13? I installed the card, formatted it to be safe and started using it. All seemed fine until I placed data on it. The card would cause the Yoga13 to do some or all of the following;Bog DownLock upStop seeing the SD card, it would disappear from the installed media listContinuously need to RESCAN the SD card (very slowly - 90 seconds or more), and sometimes lock up in the processKeep the Yoga from shutting down Now, I have NO issues with a 64GD USB drive, super fast loading and never causes any issues. If I remove the SD card, the problems go away. So I know the response is going to be YOU HAVE A BAD SD CARD, which is FINE, as long as I do not buy another $60-$100 card and have the sample problem, only to find out it is a driver issue that needs to be resolved on the Yoga 13. If anyone has a SD card they are happy with and have none of the issues, could you let me know the Make/Model. Also, if anyone has had the same problem and have tried multiple cards, also let me (us) know so that we can try and get the manufacturer to at least tell us a fix or update is on the way! Thanks in advance......D

Hi, I have read on the forum that people are using the SDXC cards with their Yoga 13's.I have purchased a Sandisk 64Gb SDXC ExtremePro card but when I put it into the Card Reader a blue screen comes up saying " Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart." It also gives and error with this message saying: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (TosExt.Sys). It cannot restart again until I remove the card, the same thing happens in SAFE MODE also or if I try to start the computer with the card inserted already. The card is brand new and I bought it in a reputable shop. I have tested the card in a Lenovo ThinkPad X230 and it works fine. I have also tried to insert a different standard SD card into the Yoga but the same thing happens. I have reinstalled the driver for the reader but the problem still remains. The OS is Windows 8 64 bit. The card is in ex FAT format and I re-formatted it again just to be safe but still no luck. I was not able to find anything regarding this online but saw that some people here have similar problems.I would really appreciate if someone could help or at least let me know if there is a way of contacting Lenovo about this problem, I see that they will only accept emails regarding the ThinkPad product line.Thank you in advance and best regards to all!

My daughters Yoga 11S has thin horizontal line.She is in college.Should I panic?  Do I need to worry about full "black screen" crash?Missed warranty by 2 months. Disappointed anyone have ideas or suggestions?

Answer:Thin horizontal line on Yoga Ideapad Yoga llS

hi kbrunk,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums and sorry to hear about your trouble.
 
Horizontal lines are commonly caused by an imminent failure on the LCD (either the LCD panel or the LCD cable) or the GPU. To identify which component is failing, the unit must be connected to an external display. If the display is fine then the culprit is the LCD cable, otherwise, it's the GPU (which is integrated to the CPU (CPU is soldered to the motherboard)).
 
In the event that the problem is with the LCD cable, you can opt to:
1. Contact lenovo for service
2. Have the machine serviced at a professional computer repair center (if they don't have the parts for the repair, you can purchase it online (like this item).
 
If it's not convenient to have the unit serviced at the moment (ie. need it for an upcomming exam, thesis, etc.), the computer can still be used if the horizontal line is still bearable but I recommend you get it serviced ASAP.
 
 
Regards

Answer:Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 - compatible SSDs

hi Zsolt,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
I haven't seen anyone used the Kingston 240 GB SSD on the Z570 but it should work as it's a 2.5" drive (ensure that you can return the item though just in case the BIOS doesn't detect it).
 
Alternatively, you can opt to get another brand like the Samsung Evo as other users have tested it on this unit.
 
Video:
Samsung SSD on the Z570
 
As for the OS, Windows should automatically activate itself once you re-install Windows (e.g., From a backup, a recovery disc, or fresh install) but in case it doesn't activate, you will need to activate it by phone.

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.

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.

Does anyone know if the Samsung 256gb SSD that comes in the Yoga2 13 inch. is compatible with the original Yoga 13? I'm looking for an addtional drive to add to the second slot and located one but before purchasing want to make sure it will work in the original Yoga. From what I've read it doesn't seem to be any issues but not 100% and could use some clarification. Thanks

I want to purchase the Yoga 900 2 in 1 but only if there is a docking station compatible with the laptop. Please let me know which docking station would work. I need more USB3 ports.
Thanks,

Answer:Which docking station is compatible with the Yoga 900?

I think all you can get is basically a USB 3.0 hub or glorified hub. Plugable might have something you'd want, but personally I'd make do with a hub.

Answer:is there any recommended/compatible stylus for yoga 700?

On this subject, I have a ball point pen with a stylus on the other end which is fine for navigation and scrolling on the yoga 900 but not good enough for writing properly. It leaves gaps in the writing and isn't accurate enough. Sorry I don't have a 700 to try.

Does the Yoga Pro 3 support the new Samsung 950 Pro NVMe storage card? Will it require a BIOS upgrade or does the BIOS already support NVMe

Answer:Samsung 950 Pro NVMe compatible with Yoga 3 Pro

No, it won't. SATA and PCI-Express protocols are not inter-compatible when it comes to m.2 slots. You can only match sata m.2 drives to sata m.2 slots -or- pcie m.2 drives to pcie m.2 slots. Yoga pro 3 supports sata m.2 only and while even it were possible (if physical wiring on system board w/ m.2 slot could support pcie configuration) I seriously doubt Lenovo would spend time and money engineering a separate bios for a previous generation model. Prolly in Q1 2016, Lenovo will begin to release in the USA market some new laptops that will support NVMe. Out of the current models available for purchase I think there are only 1 or 2 that have nvme support.

Hello...So I recently bought myself a Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S3 14 with this ThinkPad Pro Pen. But while tidying my display, I saw some little scratches on it and after some research and testing, I realized, that this great ThinkPad Pro Pen is causing this.  Since I bought this notebook to be able to write something down in university and to draw something, I definitely want to use this feature. But as well I do not want to have a totally scratched display :/ And as it seems to me, you cannot even use another (softer) tip with the ThinkPad Pro Pen to avoid this. So, finally, are there functioning alternatives to replace this ThinkPad Pro Pen? I am fairly new to this stylus technique stuff. The only thing I know, that my ThinkPad Yoga S3 14 has a capacitative display. Would be great, if someone could just name a few alternatives or explain me, how I can see, if a pen is compatible with my notebook/display.  Have a nice evening!

Answer:Lenovo Yoga S3 14 other pens compatible?

Hi
 
I haven't found any other Pen that can be used instead of the "ThinkPad Pro Pen". I had tried a Wacom bamboo pen (without batteries) and Thinkpad Tablet 1 Pen (Ntrig with batteries) without any luck.
 
Maybe someone else with more access to digitizers and a TP Yoga can do some more test.

Answer:Ideapad Y470 compatible hard disks in the market?

Hi herricane45 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Based on the product specification for the Y470 
Storage: 500GB (5400 rpm), 500GB (7200 rpm), or 750GB (5400 rpm) /  SATA 3.0Gb/s, 7mm or 9.5mm high
 
FRU parts list Item 21 pages 82-83 of the hardware manual shows probable harddrives that is supported for your model.
If you are fine with same capacity , your current harddrive would also have a label on its sticker to compare specs too.
 
Hope this helped answer your query.
Update us how it goes best for you.

Answer:Lenovo IdeaPad Z510 (20287) - Compatible mSATA SSDs?

hi Charlotte,
 
Regarding your questions:
1. Looking at the specs sheet, the Ideapad Z510 does have a mini PCie card slot to fit an mSATA SSD but it doesn't indicate that it supports mSATA data signaling (and this slot is occupied by the wireless adapter).
  - Link to picture (page 27 of the HMM)
  - Z510 Specs
 
2. Not compatible. If you're leaning towards an SSD upgrade, you could consider getting a regular 2.5" SATA SSD and replace the HDD with the SSD and install Windows 7 on it. Check this thread as other users have sucessfully installed Win7 on their Z510.
 
3. Natively, these are some of the systems that supports mSATA:
   - IdeaPad Y400 / Y500
   - IdeaPad Yoga 13
   - IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro
   - IdeaPad U310 / U410 / U510
   - IdeaPad Y580
 
Sample articles / videos:

Not sure why posts asking about installing an OS other than Windows 10 on this device seem to vanish but here goes my attempt for a Linux Specific question. I am unwilling to run Windows 10 because an OS that without any advance notice will uninstall your privately owned and paid for software from other companies during updates potentially costing licensing fees to acquire a replacement license or even damaging system viability if one of those packages is a required driver is unacceptable to me. Due to the aforementioned issues with Windows 10 I am looking to Linux as an alternative for this device. Are there any known Linux Distributions that will fully support the hardware?Does anyone have experience installing Linux and configuring it on this device?What Linux Distribution is most recommended for this device?What additional drivers or software are recommended on Linux to be able to use the hardware to the fullest? Thanks.

Dears, I would like to upgrade my current 256GB SSD of my Thinkpad Yoga 260 Model 20FES04T37 with 512GB SSD. I have found the below partnumber in Lenovo store which says that is compatible with Thinkpad, but I see that a special factor (M.2) is required for Yoga 260 which is not listed in the description of this part number: 4XB0L67026 ThinkPad 512 GB SATA 2.5" SSD Can anybody confirm this will be compatible with my Yoga so that I proceed with the upgrade with this SSD?

Hi My Lenovo Yoga 13 has stopped taking a charge. It happened about two days ago and has not charged since. I even took it to a local Best Buy and attempted to charge it with a different charger but no dice.I'm pretty sure I need to set up an RMA to send it in but I have been stuck on hold with Lenovo for 1 hour and 15 minutes now without any kind of response. I'm hoping someone on here can offer some assistance. It's difficult to post to this forum from my smartphone.

Hello, if this is the wrong forum, please let me know where to post. I couldn't find anything for an ideapad. Anyway, I have the ideapad yoga 13 and it will only charge up to 12%. I've tried to reseat the battery, recalibrate the battery, reinstalled the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery under Device Manager, tried a different power supply, and uninstalled the power management software. It will charge, but only to 12%. The system tray says that it is plugged in and charging, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I'm not sure if this is a software issue, mobo issue, or batter issue. I'm comfortable reloading Windows 8.1 on it if I have to, but I don't want to waste anymore of my time trying to troubleshoot this thing. Has anyone had this issue or know the fix? Thanks!

Answer:Ideapad Yoga 13 will only charge to 12%

Hi.I don't know if an Ideapad has the same apps preinstalled as a Yoga 2 PRO. But I had almost the same problem, and found out that in the Apps section (the Lenovo section) there is an app called "Energy Manager" and within this there is an option called "Conservation Mode" - the last tab. This was turned on, and after I disabled it, it would charge the battery to 100%.I don't know if this is a solutuion, but it is worth a try :-)Kind regardsFrank

I ordered my original Silver Grey Yoga first week of November and then around Dec. 9th was told that the Clementine version was out and that if I ordered that (this was told to my by a sales rep) I would receive it a couple weeks sooner...this is getting ridiculous now because not only do I obviously want this laptop but its reaching the 2 month mark of when I first ordered and all I've gotten from the terrible Lenovo customer service is dodging ambiguities.  Does anyone else have any experience with this/advice?

The only things I didn't like were the Intel HD 4000 and no backlit keyboard but I can live without those. After finding these forums and reading many reviews, I have found that there will be more than just those 2 issues. I have found out about the following problems: -Low storage (can possibly be repartitioned to 11x GB after some work.) (Also has SD card slot for upto 128 GB)-Certain Windows Updates updates breaking startup, shutdown and touchscreen-Irresponsive touchscreen (Can be fixed from forum post)-Weak WI-FI...     I really can't live with this. I need it working everywhere in the house. -Noisy Keyboard-Rotation Lock Button issue-Noisy fan If there are anymore problem/fixes to these problems, list them here please. I was really looking forward to getting a tablet-ultrabook but I don't think I can live with these problems...What do you guys think?

Answer:Should I purchase an Ideapad Yoga 13?

I think it's great.  Early adopters will have some kinks but they will be ironed out.  No deal breakers so far for me despite these "issues"

Hi -- I've a bizarre problem that's suddenly developed on my IdeaPad Yoga 13: _all_ internet connections show as "limited" and won't allow any access to the internet. I'm seeing this with wired ethernet as well as Wi-Fi connection.  Other PCs and devices connect to these connections just fine, but the Yoga won't: I can't get it online at all. This suddenly started a couple of days ago, and I wasn't install any new software at the time. Any ideas?  Alan 

Answer:no internet on IdeaPad Yoga 13

That limited thing has started happening to me as of a couple days ago too.  No wifi issues before that.

Is there any possibility to shift from RT to just Windows 8??If not, here are my issues: There are very limited free apps, I can't even run a decent Anti-virus software. It keeps saying cannot run this application; including basic ones like Google Chrome (without purchasing i.e., why can't I simply download from internet).I require softwares of accounting like Tally and it doesn't run. What do I do? :/Also in Local Disc--Users list, the name doesn't change no matter what I try.Please help!

Answer:Ideapad Yoga 11 with Windows RT 8.1

Hi there, Unfortuately there is no way to change from Windows RT to 'full' Windows 8.1. Windows RT devices (such as the Surface, Yoga 11 and some other devices) use an Nvidia processor rather than an Intel or AMD processors. This means that the only apps that can run on Windows RT are the ones from the Windows Store. Software such as iTunes, Google Chrome, Firefox etc. cannot be dowloaded and used on Windows RT as they are not compatible. If you want to run 'traditional' Windows programs you will need a different computer with an Intel or AMD CPU no software other than what you can download from the store can be used on Windows RT.

Hello there. I have an IdeaPad Yoga 11S, and the OEM 128GB SSD is running out of space. I believe the OEM SSD is a 1.8-inch drive. So if I were to get a larger SSD, would it have to be 1.8" as well, or could I use a 2.5" drive instead? I already have a 2.5" 500 GB hybrid drive that might work well, or I might just go buy a new SSD...but the 2.5" drives are cheaper and more widely available than the 1.8" drives.
