Lenovo G50-80, upgrade ram and storage and updating drivers

2020-06-28, 15:37 PM

Hi , I have a Lenovo G50-80 with a I7-5500U cpu , R5 M330 gpu and 8GB DDR3 of RAM.


I want to know if there's a way to upgrade the system to 16GB DDR3 ram and if I could use an SSD in addition the existing storage and use the SSD to boot up Windows 10 ?


Also regarding updating GPU drivers should I download the latest drivers from AMD website or would I face any troubles ?

Hi rashidafc,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Yes you may upgrade the ram up to 16GB.

Follow the hardware manual for directions and make sure that you get the right low voltage DDR3L ram similar to the discussion here.


There is no other storage slot than what you currently have (HDD).

Best option I can think of is replace the HDD with SATA 2.5 7mm SSD.


Others would place the original HDD to a HDD caddy to use as additional storage like here.


Do take time to check on the linked discussions as it would help you in your upgrade plans.


I hope this helps answer your query.
