Q: Lenovo y700-15ISK ssd upgrade m.2 slot WIN 10 inst...

Hello Lenovo Forums, I am trying to install Windows 10 on my SM951 256GB m.2 ssd. Unfortunately, while it is recognized as a drive in windows, and in the bios, it is not considered a bootable device. When installing windows, it goes directly on the current c://. What am I doing wrong? Much Consideration, Xenda

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Upon some inspection through some forums, I have gotten it recognized in the boot menu. Windows still insists on installing to the hhd, though.

Hi all,  I'm sorry if I am beating a dead horse with this post. Today I purchased an Intel SSDPEKKW512G7X1 M.2-2280 512 GB SSD and installed it. For the past few hours I have been having trouble getting the BIOS to recognize it as a bootable drive so I can install Windows 10 onto it. Does anyone have any suggestions. Have turned off secure boot and turned on legacy support. Did check to see if it is DOA and it isnt. Thanks!

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

Hi, I am really interested in this laptop especially in variant with i7-6700HQ, so far everything looks pretty much as a dream comes true, but I have one more question. Is Intel VT-D supported? It's huge game changer for me, because I want to be able to run multiple virtualmachines and passthrough nvidia gpu to them. According Intel, VT-D on this cpu is supported, but I can't find any info  support with this motherboard. Thanks

I'm having some lag with my touchpad, about every 3 seconds. Searched around about this problem and did some updates on the driver.
 
Even did a factory reset, but same problem.
 
Anyone having similar problem and fixed it?
Read somewhere that it may have something to do with the Realtek HD audio software/driver??
 
Using external mouse for the most, but would be nice to have the option to use a functional touchpad from time to time.

So I'm planning on buying this model: Lenovo Ideapad Y700-15ISK, but the one I'm looking to buy doesn't have an SSD and doesn't specify which ports are still available, only that it has a 1TB HDD. So I wanted to ask: 1. Does it have a free M.2 port? all models of the Y700-15ISK should have them, or am I wrong? 2. Which type of M.2 SSD does it support? M or B+M? I already sent the same questions to the retailer, but I am still waiting for an answer so thought I'd ask here as well.

I recently bought this laptop and I have two problems:1. Especially when the screen is black, there is a green light on the upper part of the screen. I don't know what causes it maybe a led or something is installed badly (it's a 5 cm area). Should I take it back and ask for a new one?2. This problem is related to scaling. When it is set to 100%, everything is small but crystal clear. When at 150%, everything looks normal but some apps like Steam, BitTorrent... are blurry like they were just zoomed on. Reinstalling windows and drivers should solve this? Simply reinstalling drivers didn't help.Thanks!

A:Lenovo Y700-15ISK screen issues

I don't know anything about your first problem (it may be a hardware problem), but I do know something about the second. Some programs (Steam, for example) aren't made for high-dpi screens. for these programs that appear blurry, right click on their icon (on the desktop), and click properties. Under the compatibility tab, check "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". This should work after you restart the program.

Hi y70015ISKm2SSD , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
What you can initially try is to disable fast boot under shutdown settings > advanced power options.
 
If same issue continue to disable "allow hybrid sleep" either from same advance power settings or from cmd as administrator using powercfg -h off to disable hibernation if needed. 
 
Update us how it goes .

Hi,I've got problem with screen in my lenovo Y700 laptop:1. screen is not bright enough (brightness set to maximum by Fn+->) in comparison with connected lcd monitor to the laptop2. white colors are not actually white, but they seem a little yellowish (huge difference in comparison with connected lcd monitor to the laptop)For now I don't have possiblity of taking photo, but I'll attach it soon.I tried dowgrading(to 10.18.15.4271)/updating intel hd drivers, updating nvidia drivers, turning off intel hd graphics, updating bios with no effect.When I turn off intel from device manager I cannot open nvidia control panel (message appears that it coudn't find any connected monitor)

Why would anyone want to see that HORRIBLE colored background behind the Lenovo logo? please get a new design director, or tell what ever programmer came up with this to stick to programming!! How can I edit this back to the standard white type on black.

Hi all,  I'm planning on upgrading the RAM in my Y700-15ISK system, I recently installed a 1tb SSHD and this is my next step. My only issue is that I'm not sure on what RAM is applicable, using sites such as Kingston's system scanner and also Crucial's doesn't show my system specs accurately and therefore I don't feel all too confident about their results. After looking into is seems I need DDR4 SO-DDIM which is running at 1.2v and 2133MHz. I currently have (1x4GB) installed and I am planning on upgrading to a 16GB kit (2x8GB). After looking about I came to find this: http://www.ebuyer.com/728407-corsair-16gb-2x8gb-ddr4-sodimm-2133mhz-c15-memory-kit-cmso16gx4m2a2133c...Does anyone have any opinions? Thanks.

Please click here for better understanding.
 
For Ram usages issue,
 
Check the process list in task manager to see if you can find out what's hogging all the memory.
Select Task Manager, the Performance tab, Resource Monitor, and Memory tab. What are the figures for Hardware Reserved, In Use, Modified, Standby and Free?
 
I recommend that you run Disk Clean-up or cCleaner to remove temporary files as this will reduce scanning times by security software.

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.

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.

The antiglare really does impact clarity. I'm not sure if colors are affected by it, but reason seams to think yes to some extent.

A:32 GB Ram on Ideapad Y700-15ISK ?

Hi basitj  , 
 
 
Greetings . 
 
I was also waiting for other members to try going beyond 16 GB on this model.  
So far,  was not able to get a verified working upgrade on this model most likely since it was just released in the market and that it is using DDR4 already.  
 
Seen models that worked from beyond recommended RAM from OEM since memory controller of processor usually exceed whole system max ram. This is due to systemboard limitation and firmware identification set by OEM. 
 
If you can have your company IT group test it or have computer shop to try going beyong 16 GBDDR4 then it's the only time we can decide . 
 
Update us if possible , it would be a good reference for our community. 
 
 
Regards

Evening. I have purchased the Lenovo Y700-15ISK and having installed CS GO I am experiencing FPS spikes every 5-10 minutes of gameplay. At first I believed it was down to the GPU temperature reaching the throttle limit of 67 degrees but after further tests I have played for 1 hour+ and the temperature has not gone above 60 degrees. These spikes happen as soon as I enter the game even if the laptop has only just been turned on so I don't believe it is temperature related. I have the max processor state at 99% to eliminate turbo and it does not make any difference if I have the graphics settings on high or low. Any ideas or help would be appreciated as I seem to have hit a brick wall. Thanks in advance. Chris Keegan.

Can you be a little clearer with your issue. From what I can gather, you're having problems with the brightness of your screen f right? Most issues like yours can be fixed/managed in settings menu. Go to display and find the brightness that suits you. Hope this helps. This is the best I could come up with based on how you asked your question.

Was that Win 10 via onekey. Regardless, check and apply the latest driver and utilities from downloads.Windows 10 will optimize fast boot startup after several shutdown and restart cycles. No doubt there are also outstanding Windows Updates as well which will take a long time to install and catch up to the current releases.

Hi KeatonBeutlich , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
The best guys that can decipher Result Code: WVC003002-UL7VON would be calling in technical support .
Otherwise you can simply proceed in manually installing display drivers from the device manager (  Intel then 970m) either from the support website or directly from manufacturer.
Related discussions here and here for review. 
 
For the freezing issue , updating the BIOS can help. Check on this discussion for the steps including the readme files from the support driver site. 
 
Disabling the caps/num lock indicator you may follow this steps from this article Similar also here or this  this post. 
 
Let's try it a step at a time .
Update us how things go.

This morning I noticed a new bios version (CDCN52WW) was available so I installed it. It seemed to install ok, with no errors, but then the laptop got stuck in a bootloop where the Lenovo logo (now on a new ugly colored background) comes up for 10 seconds or so, then reboots. I don't have a recovery partition anymore, so the Novo reset won't work. Is there a way to force it to boot from USB? I tried F12, but didn't work. Called support and they want me to ship the laptop for repair, but I would really like to avoid that if possible.

While playing GPU intensive games I had the feeling that the laptop does not reach its full capabilities.Even while using the recommended GPU settings by NVIDIA for the respective game, the games felt a bit sluggish.So I ran some benchmarks using the program Furmark. It looks like the laptop is programmed to throttle the GPU once the temperature reaches 65-67 C.Can this be possible? This kinda sucks. I didn't pay for high end hardware just to have it throttled by my system's BIOS or whatever causes this.Moreover the fans don't always seem to run at full capacity before the temperature throttling kicks in.It also does not seem possible to control or monitor the fan speed by a third party program like MSI Afterburner. If this is supposed to be a laptop for gamers it kind of missed the mark here.

A:Ideapad Y700 15ISK - GPU throttling by temperature...

Make sure you don't have any power saving features turned on, I know Lenovo has a bunch of Power Management software installed by default. Are you using "Power Saver" power plan in Windows by any chance? I can max out the overclock in Afterburner and game for hours on end at 1337 MHz core, so I'm not having any throttling issues. However I did do a clean install of Windows so I have no Lenovo software running on mine.

My laptop came with windows 10 pre-installed.  I've been trying to downgrade it to windows 7 64 bit.  Every time i put the CD in the drive to boot windows 7, it seems to work up until the point where it scans the hardware configuration.  At that point it asks me for drivers and will not continue. There are drivers for windows 7 on the product page for this model, but they look like drivers that you would use after you get windows installed. Can someone post me the steps about what i need to do in order to make this work?  What settings i need to have in the bios, and any drivers i would need for the install of windows 7? Thanks

A:Y700 15ISK - How to install windows 7 64bit?

So to update this, i still haven't figured out 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.
