Hello i have an Lenovo m93p that i was wondering to upgrade with an ssd and gtx 1060 or 1070 card.
Is this possible? I have an spare psu and ordered the 14pin adapter cable, also fitment is not an issue as i am going to use an 16x ribbon cable and make a new mount for the card.
However is it just simple plug and play and download the latest drivers or will bios bring me issues?
[Y520] Slow, sluggish and unresponsive, help me please !
Hello, i have troubles with my Lenovo Y520 laptop and it’s really frustrating right now.
I bought the 1TB / 4GB Ram / GTX1050 one, and in the last months the situation just got worse and worse.
The HDD is always peaking up to 100% when i’m launching a program like a text editor or a web navigator.
I disabled superfetch and any services you don’t need in order to keep it fast but it doesn’t even work.
I disabled Cortana and Windows tips but now the Start button is unresponsive and slow (it takes like 2 to 3 minutes to show up)
Browsing my files is a real pain in the ass and installing programs is a total no-no because it takes so much time to complete.
I can’t even play The Binding of Isaac Rebirth video game correctly, it sometimes takes ages to switch between rooms and floors.
What can i do ? I don’t know if i can return the PC to the factory, i don’t know i can get a refund or a credit to buy the superior model, so please help me.
Y520 FN key lock
Hi, I just bought this laptop yesterday and I was wondering if there’s a way to lock the Fn Key to only use the commands, like brightness up/down, volume, etc.
Pretty much any other laptop I had could swap the Fn Keys at the BIOS, and even the ThinkPad/IdeaPad/Yoga/older Legion series can.
I understand from a Gaming perspective how important these F-keys are but having the option disabled is just annoying, as I purchased this particular laptop not for games specifically.
G500 – Sound issue and Sleep mode disabled
I have a Lenovo G500 Laptop .
I accidentally deleted the OS drive(Win 8) resulting in installation of an Unregistered version of Windows7 OS. Since the day I have installed it,I noted that the Sleep mode is greyed out. Then the Sound wasn’t working even after repeated reboots..I found that when I put my Laptop for Hibernate and wake it up the Sound would come up.I knew it was a temporary solution however I continued working in the same way.Of late,whenever I try to wake my PC from Hibernation,it displays a blank black screen and only when I remove the battery that the PC boots to the Desktop screen lest with Sound not working.One could hear the Windows Welcome Sound when it boots to the Login screen but the Sound services do not work after the Desktop screen comes up.
Also, I do not have the Factory OS disc and it is Out of Warranty.

Electric shock on E470 power adapter plug?
Hi, I am wondering if anyone with a thinkpad E470 has experienced an electric shock. I have a 3 pronged AU power plug and sometimes when I unplug it i get an electric shock. I’m trying to work out whether its the adapter or my power socket. It has happened 3-4 times, when I touch the metal after unplugging it. Perhaps it is not grounded properly or there is a build up of charge somewhere.
If anyone else has this issue, please let me know 🙂
