K320 Still a mystery?

2010-03-10, 21:33 PM

I still can't find the K320 as a listed product or any really any info on my K320.

When will Lenovo be adding it to its products and support?

Thanks, Ben

Here you go:

You're not crazy. The K320 is missing from the main support site pages... it is on the consumer support site.

USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.
I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

That's a helpful page, bananaman, thanks.  

 

Another part of the Lenovo Sekrit Code is that they hid a lot of technical info under the name K305.  The K300's and K320's share a common set of manuals, which can be found at:

I wonder if Dell or HP customers have to work this hard to get info out of their companies!

Quick update to the above.  When we first found that sekrit info, all K3 series info was listed as K305. 

 

Now they seem to have info under three different codes, K300, K305 and K320, with slightly different sets of manuals for each.  Some of them were just posted on 2/15/10.

 

Gotta love Lenovo!

And the plot thickens!

 

While Lenovo has never actually listed a K320 for sale on their website, they do occasionally offer a small glimpse of its existance on the page banners, which mention the K300 and the K320.  And now, the K305 is suddenly added to the banner, of course with no other info.  I did some poking around on the web and found several flakey dealers trying to sell a K305, with an AMD chip?  I couldn't find any prices.

 

I wish Lenovo would stop adding new models and start selling the ones they've already announced.

Cpu-z and SIW show I have a Intel chip, yet I see lots of software loaded for AMD64.

I just don't know. Did you ever check out the BIOS? Seems you can't do much except enable and disable things.

But again, I have my K320 for 2 months and it is working fine. I did a few re-installs (factory) and some of mine and tweaked it up some.

Hi  brianbattuello

 

i tried to get on this page, but somehow the so called "consumersupport" page is quirked up, if pushing the "userguides & manuals" I don't get anywhere.

This is the crappiest support page I ever saw.

 

Does anybody have the chance to download some manual regarding the bios?

 

If so is it possible to somehow forward it to me and/or post it here?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Mike

Hi Mike!

 

Welcome to the tiny club of K320 users.   There's a lot more discussion in the other K320 topic (don't recall the name right now) but nothing about the K320 BIOS that I can recall. 

 

The K320 manuals are available now at

 

http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/ot/en/Guides/Guide_list.aspx?CategoryID=665773

 

The manuals are good at some things and completely useless on others.  I did a quick search for BIOS in the manuals and got no hits at all.  So you are pretty much on your own.  I recall jumping into the BIOS when I first got it to turn off some of the annoying beeps, and it seemed pretty straightforward, but I wasn't doing anything complicated.

 

Overall I think the K3 series are good, solid well built machines and a pretty fair value for the money, but the technical support is horrible. 

 

Good luck with it, and hope you find what you're looking for!

 

Brian

Hi Brian,

thanks for your quick reply.

The concern I had about not finding any documentation is now solved. The problem of the quirked up Webpage is only here in the office, I guess the Firewall is blocking certain content and scripts.

On the other hand, why I wanted to have some info about the bios is following.

In the bios you are able to set the boot-sequence for normal, automatic and error booting.
Even if I change the sequence to use the internal HDD the machine always tries to boot from the attached USB drives first.
Meaning that every time I want to turn on the K320 I have to detach the USB drives prior to booting.
That is not really the thing as it should be.

Well, I guess that is the first and last Lenovo I am buying.

Thanks again from snowy Munich, Germany.

Mike
