Lenovo Ideapad 330-15IKB SSD and RAM upgrade

2018-10-11, 17:18 PM

Hello everyone.

I am planning to buy a Lenovo Ideapad-330-15IKB (This Model)

I was wanting to know if the laptop can be upgraded by:

1. Installing an SSD (I believe that the original hdd will have to be removed..??)

2. Adding additional RAM.

 

Please tell me if the above is possible, and what SSD will be compatible and what is the RAM limit.

Also, will the warranty be void if I open the back cover??

Solved! See the solution

Hi AliabbasM,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

The current 1TB HDD can be upgrade with a SATA 2.5 SSD to replace current HDD. Most SATA SSD 2.5 should work just fine similar to this as example.

 

As for the RAM, the motherboard have a soldered 4GB RAM and with one slot that currently have 4GB DDR4 2666 SoDIMM Samsung on it. You can replace the Samsung RAM with an 8 GB to reach max of 12 GB. 

 

Max 16 RAM is for those that do not have 4GB soldered onboard similar to this discussion.

 

Generally, opening the laptop should not void the warranty opening the back cover as instructed by the manual as long as no parts gets damage during and after the process. This may be different per service provider in your region so better if you call technical support first.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

I just swapped out the HDD with a 250GB Samsung SSD. I used a "kit" from Apricorn. My 330-17IKB now runs much faster. Super-simple to clone the drive. Instead of keeping two internal drives I would consider buying an external case for the HDD.

Hi, I have 4GB 2133MHz RAM soldered and I can still upgrade with 16 GB DDR4 2666 MHz to 20GB in total (2133MHz).

Hi everyone,

I bought a similar model of lenovo (ideapad 33015IKB bios 8TCN51WW) with a preinstalled 128 SSD in it. As I am using it, I found myself desperate for more drive memory. After reading this thread, I think I got the reply already, but can anyone confirm that I can also replace my current SSD with any higher SATA 2.5 SSD?

Hello everyone

 

I am a French User (sorry I use the Google translation from French to English).

 

I just bought a IDEAPAD 330 17IKBR Model 81DM009AFR, equipped with an HDD, I would like to replace this with a SSD Samsung 860 QVO DE 1TO. 

I would like to know if this SSD is compatible with my device? If yes after having clooner and put it in place of the HDD is there a manipulation to do in the bios?

 

I thank you in advance for all that will help me. Have a good day.

Well, if the 128GB drive is a 2.5" SATA SSD, you can swap it out with any other SATA 2.5" drive, be it an HDD or SSD (which I would recommend over a HDD). If it is M.2, you might swap it for a M.2 SATA or PCIe SSD, based on the slot. I would presume it is 2.5" SATA in your case, go for any SSD.

@rosnysbois I already answered you in another thread. Your question is not so urgent that it warrants posting it in pultiple threads.
