Lenovo ideapad Y700-15ACZ - M.2 SSD Upgrade

Q: Lenovo ideapad Y700-15ACZ - M.2 SSD Upgrade

Hello everybody! I am interested in buying the new Gaming Laptop Lenovo ideapad Y700-15ACZ in the TOP version with FX-8800P and 4GB R9-M385X. As I have seen, first offers come only having the 1TB WD slim hdd. So time to find out which will be the best M.2 SSD to add nearby. For this need to clarify first if the M.2 port is connected to the SATA III of the FX-8800P's internal southbridge only or if it has connection to PCIe lanes. The HMM https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_y700-15acz_hmm_201508.pdf tells on page 26 there is PCI Express Gen3 and SATA Gen3. For the hdd is written SATA III as note and for the ssd it is NGFF which means the same like you write M.2, so it is unclear. Btw - there are NO DDR4 ports on that model yet. On page 64 you find some oem M.2 ssd models that Lenovo offers to add. Those are SATA3 models like LiteOn CV-1 and Samsung PM871 with keys for "B+M". But this also doesn't mean anything more than might be badder choices. Have a look at the mainboard on page 48. You can see that the M.2 connector has only key M (right side) which means PCIe 3.0 (cpu) + SATA whereas key B (left side) would mean PCIe 2.0 (southbridge) + SATA. That M key port would allow to put in ssd cards like the Samsung SM951MZ-HPV (AHCI) model which might be the fastest using AHCI+PCIe or even the newest model Samsung SSD 950 pro which uses PCIe 3.0+NVMe only. But if there exists only a SATA III connection, the key should be "B only" instead of "M only" or "B+M" to prevent mistake by the user. Or am I wrong? Once we know this, let's talk about the protocol that can be used. For the hdd there is IDE and AHCI meaning the M.2 should at least support AHCI. A ssd like the Samsung SM951MZ-HPV (AHCI) which support both PCIe + AHCI would be a good or maybe better choice than just a SATA III / AHCI only model. But in case of no PCIe lanes could be used this would be wasting money and a better choice would be a ssd like the Samsung EVO 850 or other good models. Dear engineers of that great Laptop (or users who already tried out): please help on this. Thanks in advance! I am sure these questions other new owners will face very soon, too. So this is important.

In the follwoing news is written ... (up to support PCIE NGFF interface 512G SSD) http://www.hea.cn/2015/0909/230546.shtml . Can someone confirm this means PCIe 3.0 with 4 lanes like the M.2 port with M key is looking?

The carrizo fx 8800p is throttling heavily as for the 15wTDP.when playing assasin creed syndicate at high setting it does give 35-50 fps when running at 3.4ghz but it throttles to 1.3 within 5 seconds gap. SO IS THERE ANY WAY TO #FIX#!! IT ??? OR UNLOCK CPU VOLTAGE

Hey everyone I bought this same laptop and I am having the same issues that where discussed here I have the fx8800p model with r9 M385x.  Heatup to 80-85c then throttles hard loosing ~10fps  This is copied from that post which discribes what issues Im encountering http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/ideapad-y700-15acz-review.783192/    "Theoretically the performance is very good with framerates between 41 and 47 fps (~43 avg) but after 20 minutes i experienced heavy frame drops (last screenshot). Those are caused by the CPU that throttles down to 1,4 GHz for a few seconds and thus makes the game unplayable. No tools i checked would show the CPU temps so it is hard to say what the cause is. The GPU reaches 85 degree max. and this seems to be the point where the system starts to throttle and even GPU clock speeds are lower than they should (700 - 900 MHz)." I Would love to use this laptop to game on as it does give good proformance but as the cooling setup doesnt not seem up to the task.  Also this is what Im seeing.  I have yet to see the r9m385x run at 1000mhz ever and the memory is always at 1200mhz not the 1500mhz amd says it can be used at.  I really dont understand how this product can come out with such heat issues. Im seeing temps when gaming around 80-85c and up to 92c which is scary for me. I even have a cooling pad that doesnt seem to do much.  But regardless very poor cooling and I cannot... Read more

In my first post i posted about y700ACZ throttle. it was very serious throttle from 3.4ghz to 1.3ghz while playing games. To FIX this follow my words. 1.Its not the gpu or the apu that is throttling nor any other hardware flaw. 2.Its the AIR intake vent. TO [email protected] remove the hood and look upside down there you will see a cloth like fiber cloth covering the vent THATS the main reason of throttling. 3.remove the cloth carefully leave it open and run any of your game.look  at the cpu in task manager 4. i played assassin creed syndicate for 1 hour and was no throttle even the gpu temperature was @60-65c 5.there are some lag in games though which is barely seen but what i think is its bcuz of 15w TDP !! but thats ok not an issue 6.ALSO I RUN HEAVEN BENCHMARK AND @EXTREME SETTINGS I GOT MIN 20FPS AND MAX 45FPS 7.BUT FIRST OF ALL DO CLEAN THE FANS AND ALL OTHER PARTS. SO CONCLUSION THE MAIN CAUSE IS THE DESIGN FLAW AND ITS LENOVO'S FAULT NOT AMD SO AMD !!ROCKS!! SUPERB HARDWARE. CASE CLOSED.........

If this is true, you should be able to achieve a similar effect if you use one of the laptop cooling pads, if you don't want to bother with removing the air filter.

Pretty much what it says in the title.  I have recently been needing to use my Notebook for extended periods of time, and I had found that, despite the laptop reconizing that the charging cord is in, it fails to charge while in use and only charges when the computer is hibernating or when then laptop shuts down. I've taken a look at the battery settings, including Conservation Mode which seems to cause this type of problem, but I've had little to no luck fixing to problem. I would really appreciate if someone could give me some advice on how to fix the issue, as it is getting in the way of my work having to use it for only an hour, then have it charge for an hour.

Hi, I am going to buy a used Lenovo IdeaPad Y700 15.6". The modelnr is 80NV00JWMX It has the following spesifications: Intel Core i5-6300HQ, Nvidia GTX 960M 2GB, 8 GB DDR4 RAM, 1 TB HDD (maybe a 8 GB flash drive). I have never owned a Lenovo, just several other brands. Will it be possible to upgrade this model with a SSD, and still have the 1 TB HDD? I am thinking of a M.2 Solid State Drive.  I am going to pick up the Lenovo later today. I just wanted to clarify this before I am picking it up.

Hello! I have a Lenovo Y700 15ACZ Gaming Laptop with 8GB DDR3 RAM that I recently upgraded to 12GB DDR3. A few months before I upgraded (when I check task manager) it reports that my RAM speed is 800 MHz i instead of the 1600 MHz speed advertised! So, I thought upgrading the RAM, as I said, would fix the issue. BUT it didn 't. So, what I just want to know is, if my RAM is underclocked does that mean my computer is dying? I'm perfectly fine with the underclocked speed, as it doesn't affect my gaming performance. I just want to put an end to this mystery, though. So, any help would be appreciated!Thanks! :-)

Go to power options->change plan settings->change advanced power settings->Processor management->set minimum and maximum processor state to 100 %......... Even if it did not solve u might have to consider installing AMD Overdrive(Like Intel XTU) and change the processor multiplier of all cores to your specific clock frequency...... If any further doubt ask me....  CheersKamal

Hi all Please some advise. I have the Y700-15ACZ (FX-8800P, M385X 4GB). While gaming, the GPU clocks go down to 300MHZ from time to time (about every 2-3 seconds). I don't see why - the TDP remains the same according to HWInfo and the temps are quite ok.I even used MSI Afterburner and downclocked the GPU to 0.5GHZ/1GHZ (core/memory) which is a lot lower and it still happens (and TDP/temps are much lower too). Any clue? I've tried several drivers from Lenovo and from AMD and nothing helps. The performance is actually quite ok, except these jumps in clocks..Thanks

Just curious, I've read a lot about the throttling issue with these laptops, and I've even removed the dust guard which has helped a little, but does anyone know of any third party software to control the fan speeds that's verified working with the Y700-15ACZ? I'm a huge gamer and I don't care about fan noise, on my desktop the GPU fan is usually at 100% while gaming which is quite loud, even bought a externel fan for this thing and it's not enough, gaming performance is lousy due to heat, and I also complete SETI projects regularly, not a fan of my GPU constantly being at or above 80c thanks for any help.

Hey everybody, this is for all of you that bought the Lenovo Y700 15ACZ gaming laptop with Amd FX 8800P processor and are having an issue with the CPU throttling.  I bought this laptop a little over a month ago, and right out of the box, it didn't perform as it should.  It throttled down from the full 3.4ghz to 1.3, and I encountered a huge drop in my framerate while gaming.  I would start a game like Battlefield 4 or Farcry 3 and have pretty good framerates for a laptop, something around 35-40, but after playing for a while I would see my frames go down in the teens.  I knew there had to be a problem, and a solution.  I've done a ton of research on it from the time I got it until now, and I finally have the answer, thanks to numerous posts on the Lenovo community.  It takes quite a few alterations, but it helps, I promise. First, you need to make sure that all of your settings are set to High Performance.  Do this by going into your Radeon Settings and clicking Preferences on the bottom.  Click Radeon Additional Settings and in the Catalyst Control Center make sure that anything you can change to performance is set to that.  High Performance is what you want, so when you open a game it will switch over to your dedicated GPU, which in this case is a Radeon R9 M385X.  One other thing I noticed is that Catalyst Control Center takes up roughly a steady 30% of your CPU us...

how to install windows 7 on this.  Here's what i've done: I've used both the Windows 7 DVD and i created a bootable USB wiith it (UEFI Boot).  They work. I disabled the  security in the bios, so i could work with UEFI, but when i boot the machine with either, the windows 7 loading screen happens, then it freezes on the Starting Windows animated logo.  I can get no further. When i set the bios to boot in legacy mode it gets past that part, but then asks me for a driver.   I've downloaded all of the windows 7 64 bit drivers on the Y700-15ISK driver page, but none of them seem to be the driver that windows is looking for. Right now i'm a little at the end of my rope on this.  Any help would be appreciated.

I recently bought a M.2 SSD and I want to use it as a cache drive. Intels RST requires AHCI mode, I was under the assumption that I was already in AHCI mode but my inability to create any raid volumes through the disk management or have my drives recognized by the RST app says otherwise. There is no option to change my mode from IDE to AHCI in BIOS due to it being locked. How can I work around this?

A:Lenovo ideapad Y700-15ISK how to put into AHCI

Look in the device manager under IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller, it should say Intel(R) 100 Series/C230 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller. For your second part of your question, you need at least 2 disk with unallocated areas to make a RAID array. But, saying that I would never setup a software RAID (ie windows) array and the BIOS doesnt support a hardware RAID

Greetings! I recently bought a new laptop, Lenovo IdeaPad Y700 15-ISK, with Windows 10 Home preloaded. I found a minor problem that happens frequently. After the laptop is idled for a period of time, 5 or 10 mins depending on plugged in or not as you know, the laptop first turns off display, then goes into sleep mode after another 5 or 10 mins. The problem is, after I come back and try to turn it back on, the screen stays black. However, I can see that the laptop is indeed responding by pressing NumLock, CapLock, or in my case, Fn-Space to turn on/off the backlight of keyboard. I checked and I have the latest windows updates and latest drivers for everything. So, any brilliant idea on this issue? Thanks in advanced.

Is it ok to open screws to have a look inside or will that void my warranty ? Additional information: Screen blinks even when booting, before operating system and also in BIOS. So it really looks like hardware problem.

Hello all, I purchased a Lenovo Ideapad Y700-17ISK part # 80Q00011US, and according to case manager assigned to my case, 100 days ago. The notebook was mis-represented by a sales rep, and when I got the machine and it didn't have the second hard drive bay in rear of machine, which I was told the 80Q00011US had. The machine also had a mild display issue, but rather than report it and spend 2+ weeks without a machine, I ignore the issue. It didn't affect daily usage anyways. So 10 days ago, the machine dies during a reboot. Seems the MB fried. I have been fighting and waiting (mostly waiting) for over a week for a case manager (Crystal) to contact me, which finally happen @ 7:30 AM PST yesterday. The case manager was not customer friendly, refused the replacement or refund options I requested, stated they would ONLY repair the system. Her cause for "rejecting" those options was because I didn't report the display issue in the first 30 days (I have enough exp. (35 Yrs.) in computers to know a bad spot in display is NOT going to fried a MB). Conservation got heated. I refuse the repair option because I know what they will do is replace MB & Display, and return other parts back to the machine (parts that very well could have been damaged when MB died, leaving me with a US$1,300 refurbished machine). I then requested to speak with her supervisor since I was tired of being BS-ed, only for her to claim there was no-one higher to speak to, and her actually hang... Read more

Hey guys!! So yeah, I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y700 15ISK laptop. It's a really cool laptop! And it's a monster in gaming! Also, it's new. I had it with me for about 2 months now. I have no negative comments about this laptop. This laptop was my dream laptop. I always take care of it and made sure it is in top condition.  But you see, One day, like 3-4 days ago (sunday), when I got home I turned on my laptop to update my excel table for my expenses, it was bout 90%. After that, I took a nap leaving my laptop still turned on. When I woke up, I saw it was 10% percent. Of course, like any normal person would do, I plugged in the charger. To my suprise, It suddenly turned off by itself right after I plugged in the charger to the wall socket. Thinking that It just got lowbat, it was all right for me. Or so I thought. After that, I noticed that there were no lights that indicate that it is charging in my laptop. Please help!!! It's been 3 or 4 days now and I still can't use it!!! It won't charge, it won't turn on because of the lowbat and I can't fix it.Any ideas?? (i have a background on Electronics Engineering if it matters) i did some analysis. 1. I'm pretty sure that the battery is okay, but of course it's lowbat cause it shutdown at 10%. 2. My charger is perfectly fine.

Good Evening,I've reviewed the previous threads and have not seen a concise answer to this question; which m.2 SSDs are compatable with the Y700-14ISK Lenovo Ideapad? I've got the stock 5400 500GB HDD in there now and am keen on upgrading it right away with an SSD in either 2.5" or m.2 configuration.I've referenced the HMM and am torn between either going to the Samsung Evo 850 (Sata III) or the Samsung SM951 (PCIe) based. Been reading about the pros and cons of going from PM851 to SM951 and the cost difference, and performance difference, sounds impressive. Would really appreciate some guidance if any prior customers have successfully installed either of these m.2 models in their Y700-14ISK ideapads and if it's difficult to clone the existing HDD to the blank m.2 (remember, this version of the Y700-14ISK does not have an optical drive). Many thanks for your time and consideration,Mongoose

Is it available on this laptop? AMD website states the FX processor as being dual graphics capable, yet i can find no driver package that enables CROSSFIRE. GPU-Z states "Crossfire Available" but is disabled. What gives? I purchased this laptop for this reason. Is this a windows 10 issue, the AMD website under features states windows 7/8 but does not list windows 10. Also, BOTH the r7 and m385x list freesync on the amd website but i can find no driver package to turn this feature on. Please assist.

I jave the exavt same laptop, and I have yet to determine how to enable it, though not for lack of trying. If you downlaod a program called "GPU Z" is has a section that says "Crossfire Available (Disabled)" so it seems it CAN run it. Though additionally, in the new AMD crimson app, under Radeon settings, it shows that the graphics drivers are linked.  Crossfire may not be available as a feature per se, but maybe it's doing it naitvely anyway?

I hope someone can help me with this issue. Bought this laptop about a month ago and started having display issues. I have searched the forum on this issue and haven't found a resolution particular to my laptop model (then again, I could have overlooked something). Issue started a couple days ago presumably after a Windows update and started getting a message saying "display driver stopped responding and has recovered..." The screen kept blacking out, hang up then display the desktop. This happened over and over and every 4th or 5th time the laptop would restart. I eventually started getting "Windows didn't load correctly" and I had to boot into "safe mode". After 3 days of searching, I found many "resolutions" that included uninstalling the drivers and downloading the latest which I did, but to no avail. The only way I can use the laptop is to NOT reinstall the AMD drivers.

A:Lenovo Y700 SSD and Memory upgrade

hi liors.
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Looking at page 26-27 of the HMM, this model (Y700-15ISK) can use up to:
 
Standard Memory
? DDR4-2133 MHz, SODIMM × 2 (max 16 GB)
 
Hard disk drive ? 2.5-inch, 7 mm SATA III? 500 GB / 1 TB, 5400rpm? HYBRID 1 TB 5400rpm SSHD (8G)? SSD, NGFF, 128 GB / 256 GB / 512 GB
 
So to answer your question, a 16GB RAM and 128GB is doable on this machine.
 
 
As for running Ubuntu on the Y700, this Ubuntu on Lenovo Models page doesn't show that the Y700 is certified so this means that you may be able to install the OS but you may have problems finding compatible drivers.

First, new to the site and I've been reading up on my issue here to no avail as none of the solutions work or don't apply unforuntely, but here is my issue. I have recently bought the Y700 and bought a Samsung 850 EVO M.2 250 GB drive (model M5E250BW) and have installed inside the laptop. I tested to see if would show under the bios and it did and thought "oh great, this will be easey," but it won't show up under the disk manager or device manager unfortunately. So I am unable to initiaize or format the particular disk. I have called samsung (if it is under bios their product works), windows (if one hard drive shows up then there product is working), and lenovo says they have exhasted all avenues of support and they have no idea... so I'm at a loss. I am about to return the computer and the new drive and just say screw it at this point, so hopefully someone can help me. *New* The lenovo supervisor I had press to get was telling me something about legacy mode or something to that nature as a hint (changing UEFI or etc to Legacy), but refused to tell me more. No idea if that gives any ideas.

Hi there, Ipogodo                   -
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
Your CPU / GPU might be overheating and it's throttling down which may explain the FPS drop during games - this would cause your CPU / GPU to operate in a low frequency. Try to monitor your CPU by using CoreTemp and your GPU by using GPU Shark or Afterburner.
 
If you get high temperatures, you can try to decrease the heat by:

Using a good quality cooling pad that runs on high RPM or a better cooling in your room.
Replacing the stock Thermal Interface Material with a good quality TIM like Noctua NT-H1, Tuniq TX-4, or Artic Silver 5.

Also, run a few tests from this link -
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/lenovodiagnosticsolutions/tools
 
You should try Storage test, memory test, motherboard test, CPU test. Open Command prompt and try sfc /scannow to check if your windows files are corrupted.
 
Update us how it goes.

A:Ram upgrade for my lenovo ideapad v570

AGHammer wrote:Hey guys, Would anyone know if I can upgrade my laptop with dual 8 gb rams with 1600 mhz speed (G.Skill 2x8GB DDR3 1600Mhz SODIMM). Help would be appreciated! Thank youOne thing I'm sure of is that the memory will be dictated by the processor installed. Since you have not indicated the processor used I can't give you much detail. If you base it only on the specs you can only use 2 sticks or module with a max rating of 1333 Mhz each depending on the processor. As to the other specs details you have to locate the specs of the processor that you are using in the intel site. There you will know whether you can use 1600 Mhz plus other details. One thing for sure is that the max that you can use is 16 GB only if the processor allows it since you can't find a 16 GB module in the market to achieve 32 GB per processor spec.

Hi there; Has the subject says, I have a Lenovo Ideapad Z560 (0914) with an Intel Core i3-380M (3M Cache, 2.53 Ghz). I want to upgrade the CPU to the max supported. Searching in the Hardware Maintainance Manual state that I can install a i7-620M (4M Cache, 2.66 Ghz). Otherwise, the Personal Systems Reference (PSREF) in the Ideapad Z560 (0914) - GMA (Windows 7) - web only models state that I can upgrade to a i5-480M (3M Cache, 2.66 Ghz). I don't know what to choose, I only want to upgrade to the Max that can support and do not damage my machine and works well. Others says that I can upgrade to the following ones: i5-580M and a i7-640M. Attached the two info sheets. Any comments will be appreciated, Thanks!Carlos

Please Help!  My Lenovo Ideapad s210 Touch Came with Windows 8.  Whenever it went to sleep I had to logn with a password and at some point I was asked to make a Windows online account with a more complicated password & that became the password I had to use to Login to my computer a lot!.  I found out I could select Bypass the Login Screen & that worked great.  Soon the computer started bugging me about upgrading to Windows 8.1 & I thought it might be less buggy & faster so I upgraded to Windows 8.1.  Once installed it seemed to work ok then at some point it installed a lot of updates & needed to restart the computer in 16 minutes so I restarted it.  It came back on at the login screen.  I put in my password & it said it was incorrect.  I tried a few more times, even the old password, nogo.  I went online on my tablet & found others have had that problem with Windows 8.1 & 8.  I tried changing my Microsoft password & it didn't work.  I turned it off for a few days &  tried it and when I press power the button lights up but the screen stays dark. happened when I pressed power except the button lights up.  What can I do?  Is there an external reset?  I am in desperate need of help asap.  I am job hunting without a computer.   Thank you, Julie D.

A:Lenovo Ideapad y510p - memory upgrade

They're RAM sticks, not cards, and they're fairly easy to change out. I would suggest looking for something in the 1866mhz speed, though I think you need lower voltage memory. So I'd get something 1.35v or lower.

I have a lenovo ideapad y500 with a 1366x768 screen, and I am looking to pop open the screen, and replace the panel with a 1920x1080 screen. Assuming that I purchase another 15.6 inch screen (size of the original screen), is this possible? A model of the y500 is sold with a 1080p display, and the graphics card in my model is more than capable of outputting such a resolution. I was just wondering if there is a chance that the connections between my laptop and new screen would not match as I do not know if there is some sort of standard port with screens. Thanks!
 

A:Screen upgrade lenovo ideapad y500

You would need to find out the exact model of the 1080p screen was that was sold with that model and order the same one or compatible replacement model. Laptop screens are not universally interchangeable and you can't just buy any screen and connect it.

Hello, I only found out after purchasing the Y510P laptop that it for some strange reason does not support 5Ghz networks, only 2.4Ghz. This results in me having insanely slow connection every single night around peak hours (7-11pm), and I'm unable to do anything like watching movies, playing games or download stuff. Does anyone know exactly how to upgrade the wireless card on this laptop so it supports 5Ghz networks? Do I have to go out and buy another wireless card, or is it software upgrades like drivers only? I'm not a computer major so a walkthrough would be appreciated. Thanks.
