Ideapad 510 15" - Can the hard drive and/or RAM be upgraded in the Ideapad 510 15"?

2016-08-20, 6:03 AM

I'm considering the Ideapad 510 15" (Part Number 80SR0055CF).  i5-6200U, 4GB onboard RAM, 1TB 5400RPM hard drive.




Can I upgrade the RAM myself? I see some 510 models have 4GB onboard + a 4GB DIMM so I'm assuming that if I get the 4GB onboard they'll be an empty DIMM slot I could add RAM to, is that the case?  If so, what's the max memory I could add?


What about the hard drive, can it be upgraded/replaced?  At some point I would probably want to put in an SSD.


If someone could link to the hardware maintenance manual that would be really useful, then I could check these things myself.  I can't find the manual for this particular laptop.  Thank you!


Mod's Edit: System model added to the front of Subject line to improve visibility / clarity.

I edited the mod's edit because they tagged it as "510-15ISK" which I'm pretty sure is a Yoga, I'm looking at the Ideapad not the Yoga. I added a link to the product page for further clarity. Lenovo's product naming is confusing so I'm not sure.

Solved! See the solution

Hi there, Biznath


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.


As per the datasheet, the maximum memory supported is 12GB.

However you have feasibility to upgrade up to 12GB max / PC4-17000 2133MHz DDR4,

4GB memory soldered to system board, one 260-pin SO-DIMM socket.


Secondly, the maximum HDD that can be upgraded on ideapad510 is


HDD: 2.5-inch, 7.0 mm or 9.5 mm, SATA II/SATA III

SSD: 2.5-inch, 5.0 mm, SATA III

Please find the HMM for better understanding.

They have different Ranked (Single/Dual).

And if I can upgrade with both then if "Single Ranked" will be better here?
