Flex 3 1130 - Memory?

Q: Flex 3 1130 - Memory?

Greetings,I was getting one of these as a gift but noticed they only have 2GB of memory while running Windows 10 64-bit. The specs say they have 2GB of DDR3L-1333 memory so is it safe to assume this can be expanded? The sales person at the local electronics place said it was as there are also 4GB models of the same but those do not have the SSD drive (i.e. 4GB memory + 500GB slow 5400 HD vs. the 2GB memory + 32GB SSD). Thanks!

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.)

Unfortunately no on the upgrade. The Flex 3 has the memory soldered directly to the motherboard so it is not upgradable. Sorry !

A:Memory Upgrade on Flex 3 1130

Lenovo's PSREF lists a eMMC storage, which isn't the Crucial one you're linking me too. You should open your comptuer to see if your computer fits an eMMC or a 2.5 internal, but I'm thinking an 11 inch form factor would only fit eMMC.  Here's Lenovo's training video that'll help: https://www.lenovoservicetraining.com/showcase?sid=663&key=TGVuZw==

I'm using a Flex 3-1130.  It's a 2 in 1 netbook with a 360 degree hinge.  Does anyone know (or know where I can find) the sensor signal that tells the OS what position the lid is in?  In Windows 10, the netbook goes to sleep when the lid is closed, it wakes up in laptop mode when it's opened and it switches to tablet mode (turning off the keyboard) when the lid passes 180 degrees.  When the machine is running Linux, opening the lid past 180 doesn't turn off the keyboard and closing it all the way doesn't change the lid state to "off", so I know it's not a simple hardware switch.  What signal/memory address/whatever can I examine to see what position the lid is in?

I have a Toshiba Satellite 1130-Z31 (old one, but still works well).

Now i have attached a second monitor with a native resolution of 1600x900 pixels.

I have set the resolution of the second monitor to 1600x900, this is accepted.

However, the image on the second monitor looks ugly, and the external monitor?s OSD says it gets 1440x900 pixel signals from the laptop.

It seems that the Toshiba sends an image with a lower resolution than set.

I have installed the latest graphics driver - no change.

Or could this be a problem with a poor quality VGA cable or so?

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Which video port do you use? VGA 15 pin port maybe?

Hello guys,

Just got my new Dell 1130 from ebuyer UK - plugged it in, made some whirring sounds and I thought all was ok.

Then I tried printing something...

It kept jamming, and then printed, but the page was all creased up! And to top it all off, there was smoke coming from the printer (where it chucks out the printed sheets).
Anyone with a 1130 or knoledge of this stuff: Is it normal for the printer to be kicking out smoke? Its not major, but its enough to get me worried.

Hi community! I have several issues with my Lenovo Flex 3 and I'm not sure where to start to find solutions. 1. Every time when I close my laptop, it automatically switches to a tablet mode and when I'm opening it back, start menu is showing, which is annoying. I can disable autoswitch to a tablet mode, but why would I disable a feature that is one of the basic features of the laptop. So I'm wondering if anybody has an idea on how to resolve it? 2. There is an input icon in the taskbar showing the current input language. After switching to a tablet mode and back, this icon disappears. It's getting back after laptop reboot though. 3. Touchpad scrolling in some applications works rediqulously fast, it scrolls like 10 lines at once. I'm not sure if it's a laptop issue, OS issue or the application itself. Any thoughts?Thanks

Hi, I need some help here. My laptop is the Flex 2-15, 20405 (Intel chip) It was stepped on and the glass is broken; I want to replace the whole assembly. I've tracked down part numbers, and it seems that three fit the Flex 2-15. My problem is that the model 20405 seems to be HD 1366x768, and the FRU from the parts manual (5D10F86071) is advertised as a FHD 1920x1080. I just figured this out after ordering from Ebay. Question; will the FHD unit work with the MB in the HD? If this is using Intel's on chip graphics, it should work, right?  It's been a real pain finding the right FRU and LCD. Amazon vendors show the correct photo, but the parts arrive and the bezzle is all wrong, and corrisponds to an Edge 2. I've had to go to Ebay...

I upgraded my Flex 3 to Windows 10, and everything seems to work, but I'm getting extremely annoying "freezes" with input. For example, if I move the mouse (touchpad or separate USB mouse) around continuously, it will freeze for a moment once every few seconds. The same thing happens with the keyboard. It doesn't happen at all at the lock or login screen immediately after a reboot, it only starts once I log in. This first happened after doing a Windows 10 Upgrade from 8.1, and then again happened after doing a clean install of Win10. Has anybody seen anything like this before?

Hi Kaungie ,
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Do you have the Machine number of your pc to check on specific details?
Would that be Flex 3-1570 or a Flex 3-1580 ?
 
Anyways , checking further on the hardware manual and products sheet for both , showing Max 8GB x 1 slot . 
Checked on version of BIOS and no particular change on RAM caps but instead for other fixes only.
 
Memory :  8GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket
 
I would not suggest you purchase a 16 GB just to try but if you have a spare , no particular harm .
It would just either beep and and not proceed to power on self test (POST) or it would detect it.
No guarantee thou but if you have a compatible spare or have a local tech /IT to test it.
 
It is worth a try ,in some models (Z series) worked fine since the CPU can handle more.

Many scanning software show, that there are 4 slots for memory. When i opened back cover of the laptop, could found no one RAM memory =) As i know motherboard can support up to ?? 32Gb DDR 4 too.2. There are some problems when i try to the sleep mode, it wakes up at the same time. The same problem with hibernation mofe. Can somebody advice something with these problems?

Suppose that you are using (as I am) a Compaq note-book and forget (as I have done) to bring the power-cable in from home to office. If there is a power-cable to hand that belongs to a note-book of another make, but with a plug at the computer-end that fits the socket on your note-book, is there any reason not to use it ?

A:Flex-3 1580 - Buy or not to buy...

Hi everyone, nice to be  a new member here. I'm currently using a Flex-15, that has been doing OK over the last few years, aside from ghost touches early on, then the touch screen died (still using 8.1).  Thinking of getting a Flex-3  80R40011US (i7/256 SSD/M940), but many reviews seem not so kind, and I am really torn about what to do.   I really like all of the features of the Flex-3, but reading of the black screen/shutting down issues, bad battery life, etc has me concerned.  The black screen shutting down is really a concern, even say after reading potential fixes here, and worried I will have a computer that can not be made to work properly...  Really don't want to get into a mess, right off of the bat, and can't afford to take a 15% restocking fee plus return shipping.  Is this issue over represented here, or do all owners experience this issue?  Is there an absolute 100% fix for this issue? Also would like to know about the display quality.  I had a 17" Y700 that had a golden cast, and despite a lot of fidling and BIOS update, it could not be corrected...  I hated it to be frank, and wonder if this type of issue, and/or other display issues are found in the Flex-3, with the 15.6" display? Thanks a lot for your help and insights, look forward to your replies.

I just got a Flex 3-1130 that has 32GB Flash memory, and it's past when I can return or exchange it.  Not looking for a ton of space, I have an external drive and a desktop with that, but would like to at least swap it out for the 64GB option since all the system files already use up half the capacity.   Is there an easy way to do this for someone like me who is far from a computer genius?

I purchased a new Flex 2-15 online the past week. The model name shown on the back is "20405". Manufacture date is May 12, 2014. The User Guide refers to a "Novo Button", which is shown in diagrams as being on both the left edge and the right edge near the front. Neither location has a button of any sort. The right edge has a pinhole in the supposed button location. A curved arrow icon is next to the pinhole. I have an inkling this may be some sort of factory reset button. Lacking the Novo button, what is the procedure for accessing the features which the manual says are accessed by pressing this non-existent button?. That is, BIOS, and/or the one touch image backup/restore system?

I have a Gateway Flex Desktop PC and over a period of a year or so I have been having more and more problems getting it to start up When I turn it on the power button lights up but instead of the normal green it displays a green and a red light combined The only way to get it to finally boot up is to flick the surge protector switch on and off until the system seems to catch and finally boot up as normal I feel this may have something to do -win. Xp Gateway Flex Not Up -will Start with the BIOS instructions or maybe a weak lithium battery on the system board I am sure that flickering the power is aweful for the system but it has gotten to the point that the system will not boot up if I dont do that Is this a common problem with this particular machine Once it boots up it runs fine so I just try to avoid shutting it down but that is not always an option Hope somebody out there can help

A:Gateway Flex -win. Xp -will Not Start Up

Do you have a model number? I'm going to go out on a limb and say you have a sticking/faulty power button. To take that out of the troubleshooting equation you need to take the side off the computer (change the battery while you're at it). Trace the wires from the power button to the motherboard, and remove the 2 wires. Using a flat-tipped screwdriver, quickly touch the 2 pins then remove the screwdriver. If it remains running, then you know it's the switch

Lenovo Flex 3 1580 I've tried multiple lenovo AC adapters and the laptop still won't charge. It's got about 4% battery left so it's turned off atm. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the battery drivers, but that did nothing. The charging light won't come on, the only light is the low battery light. The battery is the built-in kind so taking it out isn't an option. I don't know what to do, someone please help.

Not sure whats going on with the website, I entered in my serial number to make sure I was getting the specific drivers.  But nearly all the pieces of hardware have two different drivers. I havent had to download any yet so far since I havent done too much.  But, when it came down to video card drivers it listed Nvidia drivers and when I tried to install it it said that the compatible hardware was not found. Shouldnt there be only one driver? I mean.. maybe multiple versions, but they are listed completely different so I would believe they are different drivers completely.

Every time i try to create a group i have 2 options 2x1 or 1x2. I downloaded the updates of 22th of November but the problem persists. Do i have to use ATI adapters?

On a Lenovo Flex 14 Ideapad, and out of the blue, the touchpad stopped responding, and the volume on all sounds went to zero. A volume level adjustment indicator bar appeared upper left, pegged to the bottom (zero level). The F3/volume-up key will raise the volume, but it immediately goes down. Thinking a piece of debris was wedged in there, I have used air cleaner around the F2/volume-down key, repeatedly restarted the beast. I don't need this key at all . would like to disable it if I can't fix it. the volume rocker on the side doesn't do anything. Any ideas or help?  As is, the computer is useless unless a USB mouse is plugged in.  Apparently the F2/Volume down key interrupts preempt the trackpad, so no cursor control is possible. screencap:  http://1drv.ms/22nPDGs

When you press the Power to turn it on start hitting the Fn+F2 and F2 only simultaneously.
It should get you to a bios settings
   Go to the Configuration tab and look for the "Hotkey Mode" option Toggle that to Disable the hit F10 or Fn+F10 to save and Exit
 
It should switch the use of F keys to legacy

I'm a bit upset and fraustrated with my current situation.One of the reasons I purchased from the Lenovo website was the perks that the laptop comes with a pre-installed licensed MS Office 2013.Now, I just got my laptop today. There's Office 2016 pre-installed but with no license.How will I use this? Free trial will expire soon. And of course, this software is definitely a must-need.I can honestly say like it was a false-advertising at Lenovo's part.It might possibly be just in my case, or it has been this way with others. How can I fix this issue? I paid the full price, so I should received the item as advertised or as expected.I apologize if my message comes off as rude, but I did not expect it to be this way.I will be thankful for any kind of help.

I can't believe that the battery would just stand for appr. 3 hrs after full load on my Flex 2-15 (< 2 yrs old) considering this environment:
- running W10
- HDD replaced by SSD
- shutdown / battery saving features enabled like shutoff screen, turn off HDD after 5 mins
- typically running only on 60% brightness
- AV-programm with small footprint ( just NOD32 AV)
- no background active apps except mail
- 99% just browsing and mailing ( once in a while some youtube videos or lifestream)

Hi all, I've recently bought a Flex 2 pro, and I'm having some problem with the sound on it.Regularly, but with no obvious pattern, the sound goes quiet. After a moment or two it goes back to the regular volume. (Generally about the length of time it takes to turn the volume up)I've looked at all the sound settings and a similar effect is created by turning the Dolby digital enhancement off. This leads me to think that what is failing, but I can't find any instances of that online.I've reinstalled the sound card drivers (the most up to date ones), but that's been no help.Any suggestions or solutions would be great fully received.Cheers

I have experienced a similar problem.It occurs at the start of an audio clip (never while it is already playing), almost exclusively through Chrome (although I rarely play music contained on the HD through Music Player so I can't rule it out). IMO, the sound card might be encountering difficulties switching between input sources (for ex. if I switch between tabs or go from one application to another). Symptoms: the volume stays low and the sound is somwhat distorted: the low and mid-range sounds are virtually muted out. This last anywhere between 5 seconds and a minute, and then the sound magically becomes clear again Attempted solutions:In instances where the sound doesn't begin playing normally again, restarting the laptop works.The drivers have been re-installed.

Hi.  My laptop seems to crash at roughly 1 hour of use, regardless of battery life or what I am doing.  Screen goes black and I am unabe to do anything.  I am still able to adjust the brightness of the backlighting and I can see that the screen does turn off and on, but it will still be black.  This started happeneing a little while ago.  No idea why honestly.  Any insight would be appreciated.  I have updated the display drivers only since it was crashing a lot when wacthing youtube.

I am looking at buying a Lenovo Flex 14 at a reasonable price but Im struggling to find if I have options that I want for HD.
I was going to go with a 1TB Hybrid drive but Im hearing bad reviews on them. The SSD that comes with it isnt near enough storage for me.
Then I thought, I could keep the SSD for the OS if I could install and additional HD for storage.
Can anyone tel me if there is a slot for an additional drive either as M.2, NGFF, mSATA or with an expansion using the optical drive slot?
Lenovo isnt very forthcoming with information on this that I can find.
 

A:Lenovo Flex 14 additional HD

According to the reviews I have read there are different versions of the flex 14. Some come with a 128Gb SSD, others come with a 500gb HDD. Also in the different version there are different CPUs. None of the reviews mention an optical drive and from the appearance of the case I see no ports that you could install one. Judging by the size of the case it doesn't appear to have a slot for a second hard drive.

I am running a Flex-3 1580 with Windows 10.  I don't know if it is a hardware problem, Windows 10, problem or the combination of the two, but my system uses all of my 8GB of memory and locks up 2 to 3 times a day requiring me to force power off in order to resume processing.  Am I going to have to get more memory or is something else going on that I need to fix?  Lenovo Solution Center says that all is well with the system.

I recently ordered a Flex 3 15.6" 2 in 1. The model is 80k40007us. I will be getting it on Monday. Is it possible to replace the drive with an ssd drive? If so,  what size does it need to be , 2.5" or something else? I would also like to upgrade the RAM from 8gb to 16gb. Can this be done or is the RAM permanently attached to the motherboard  as it is with some other laptops?

Okay, so recently I wanted to upgrade my RAM on my Flex 2 15, 20405. However, when I opened it up, there was only 1 RAM slot. Now Speccy, HWINFO and CPU-Z all say there are two, but I only see one. Please help! Here is a picture of the motherboard: https://plus.google.com/photos/photo/107326235571543494584/6269847729746720434?authkey=CJHSgYH1hJLLs...

A:Flex 2 15 Missing RAM slot

Hi Weymere , 
 
 
Welcome to th Community Forums. 
 
Utility Software such as Speccy, HWINFO and CPU-Z would base it from its own database using the identified chipset and its features can handle and not the physical hardware as is what is declared in the product specification sheet (8GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket ) .
 
Similar discussion here and here for further review. 
 
Hope this answered your query.

I have a Flex 2-14 and I need a part. It attatches to the motherboard via ribbon cable and it's the circuit board with the power button on it. I cannot or don't know what part number to look up, any help would be appreciated.

A:Flex 2-14 - Need a Part for my computer

Hi smbainter , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
It's best if you have the machine number from the sticker or check it from the parts lookup page, where you can also get the particular Power board part number and power board cable. 
 
As example I used Machine Type - Model 59418273  LenovoFlex2-14GPGRTXI54210U8G1288MUS from partslookuppage  giving me :
Part number : 5C50F76769 Power Board W Flex2-15 CARDS MISC INTERNAL 
Then checking on the FRU list of the hardware manual, shows Item number 5 page 71 on the dissection figure . 
 
To verify herewith is the service training guide for video referencing the part you are describing as power board. 
 
Update us how it goes for you. 
 
 
Regards

Hi, I am new to the forum and I want to buy a 13-14 hybrid laptop for everyday use (heavy wordprocessing with Word, internet research with up to 10 pages opened at the same time, YouTube, Netflix...). I have seen these two laptops for sale on a french website specialised in refurbished material: Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 2 13 and Lenovo Flex 2 14. Both have FHD screens, 4 gigs of ram and a HDD (500 gigs for the Yoga and 1 To for the Flex), both have a Core i3 processor. The Yoga2 is for sale for 299 ? and the Flex 2 for 349 ?, so the price difference is not a real issue. Which of both is best in terms of performances, battery life, screen quality, noise and warmth emission? Thanks in advance for helping, Regards, vbdx66
