Flex 2 14 RAM upgrade

Q: Flex 2 14 RAM upgrade

I have two problems.First thing is that my RAM went from 4GB down to 2GB. What happened is I went to change the RAM because I want to upgrade. I took out the RAM that came in the laptop and put new DDR3 corsair vengeance 4GB x2 but when I went to start my laptop, it starts beeping 3-4 times and there was no display. Now I put the original RAM back in and left one DDR3 RAM on the extra RAM slot and it worked. However, it says my RAM is 2GB. So I'm meant to have 6GB of RAM but it only displays 2GB but I normally have 4GB without RAM upgrade. Please help, would really appreciate it

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.)

I was looking in upgrading the ram on this latop from 8GB to 16GB. I checked on crucial and it said the manufacturer supported memory was 8GB. But has there been any update to the bios to support 16GB yet? I want to upgrade the RAM as it is easy to do but was wondering if it is without any danger to the laptop itself.

A:Flex 3 15" ram upgrade

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.
 
Regards

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?

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==

What is up with the keyboard layout for the Flex 4 14"?  The page up arrow button is where the shift button should be so if you need to capitalize a letter using your right hand you have to stretch out to reach it & it's smaller than the one on the left side.  I had the Flex 3 same size with a normal layout. ???  Don't want to go with the 15" but may need to drop down to the Flex 3.

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...

In addition, I feel like the graphics might be messed up because at random the screen just goes black(I have Intel and nvida graphics. Without the power button I have to wait until the laptop dies. Any help? I am planning to send my pc to the shop because I cannot trust lenovo anymore, and I do not have the box. Is the frozen black screen fixable?

I have no idea what might be wrong with your screen, sorry, but I might have a solution for your power button. I was thinking a spring connecting the power button and the on switch inside of the pc might have been knocked out of place. To fix that, try wiggling the power button around in it's socket.

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 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 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?

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

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

Hello
Recently i bought a Sapphire HD 5770 Flex graphic card. I have problem to setup the eyefinity technology. My monitors is Samsung 32" (DP to HDMI) , HP W2207H 22"(HDMI) and LG L1720S 17"(DVI to VGA). I can extend or duplicate the second monitor without a problem. If i try to extend or duplicate the third monitor, i have to disable one of the other two. 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? Do i have to use 3 identical monitors anything i want? which monitors i can use and how i can setup the eyfinity?

Thank you for your time

If you want to use 3 monitors you may need to install another video card

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?

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.

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.

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.

A:Lenovo Flex 14 Fn key problem

hi synes55
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
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
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

I'm just out of warranty for my Flex 14. Last week I started noticing the smell of melted plastic, and the monitor started to flicker. Sent it to repair, and the tech guys told me it it would need a full motherboard change, as the videocard was overheating when an external monitor was plugged in. The weird thing is that the part melting is visible just below the screen, not where the rest of the motherboard is. I can't find if separate pieces of hardware in this case have different warranties. My videocard is: Intel HD 4400. Help? It is really annoying that my computer started to melt just after my warranty finished.

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.

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.

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

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 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)
 
Any suggestions? Battery already semi-dead ? Or are there any improvement hints around?

I have no idea what's going on. It was fine and then just says "plugged in, not charging". I only got this about a month ago. Wanted to see if anyone knows of something I can do from home to save the hassle of driving a few towns over to the warantee place.

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

A:Flex 2 pro sound issues

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.

I am looking to get a decent stylus so I can take better notes using my Flex 4, but I have found that none of the active stylus on Amazon say that they work specifically for the Flex 4. I contacted support through web chat earlier and they informed me that if it says Lenovo Yoga 900, it should work. If it's marked for the Yoga 900s, would it still work? Does anyone happen to have a suggestion for a stylus that will be primarily used for taking notes and writing in general?

I have  a Lenovo Flex 2-14 with Windows 10.
 
Whenever I connect to a Wi-Fi network other than the one at home I get a BSOD with DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE.
 
Any ideas on what I can check? Thanks in advance.
 
One of the characteristics is that when the PC restarts after the crash I can't see the network that I tried to join for about 2-3 minutes afterwards.
 
I have checked that WIndows and the drivers are up to date.

I've had my Lenovo ideapad Flex 15 for just over a year now, so I guess this is the time at which things start going kerplooey. Today my touchscreen started going haywire, clicking rapidly and repeatedly in one random spot in the top left corner of my screen, so fast I couldn't use my touchpad to get the cursor away from the spot. After closing and reopening the computer, the problem stopped momentarily but then came back. I rebooted and when Windows restarted I received a pop up that "Windows Mouse and Keyboard Center has stopped working." The problem returned shortly after, and now my touchscreen has stopped working altogether. Can anyone help me?

A:Ideapad Flex 15 touchscreen woes

Update: The problem is now intermittently returning. If I close my laptop and reopen it, it seems to disable the touchscreen for a period of time so that I'm able to actually use my computer for a bit before it starts feverishly attacking that one area of the screen. All instructions I've found online to disable the touchscreen haven't worked... I'd love to have it functioning again though. Help?

hi im new to the forums and i cant figure out how to make a new thread but i have a lenovo flex three and i bought it to take notes on it but my capacitive pen wont write, i try and draw a line and it just glitches out and graws dots and dashes and has never drawn a solid line thus far. Using my finger works fine but i would really like to write with a pen

A:Lenovo Flex 3 - Problem with capacitive pen use.

Hi Space,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo community!
 
Usually the pens that work with capacitive screens have a soft rubber tip or what looks like a smooth metal mesh tip. They mimic the use of a finger on the screen, but with a bit more fine control. Machines with active digitizers, on the other hand, work by completely different mechanics and offer very fine control. Hence you try with different stylus to confirm which is defective.
 
Let us know how you get on.
 
Regards,
Shashi

Could anyone please advise a solution: my Lenovo Flex 2-14 (Windows 8) is suddenly showing "plugged in, not charging" message. It is completely impossible to use it if it is not plugged in, as soon as you unplug it just goes dead. I have already tried the uninstall Microsoft AC Adapter way and it didn't help. Has anyone else had this exact issue? Thank you!

A:plugged in, not charging - Lenovo Flex 2-14

Hey, have you tried this -
1) Shut down the laptop and unplug the power supply
2) Press the power button for 40 seconds
3) Reconnect and start the laptop
 
Have you tried doing the "Battery Guage Reset" functionality?

Dears, I've been going crazy for 1 week, trying and trying everything to make a clean installation of Windows 8.1 64bit on an SSD I bought for my Flex 2 15. I've read thousands of pages of forums, changed 3 different SSDs, but nothing was successfull!(Crucial MX100, Crucial BX100, ADATA SP920SS) every time, during the W8.1 Setup Wizard, it displays "No hard drive found" when I have to choose in which drive to install the OS. My Lenovo Flex 2 15 came with Windows 8.1 pre-installed on a WD hard disk. Please help me.
