Lenovo L340-15IRH Gaming SSD Support

2019-08-07, 9:07 AM

I just bought Lenovo L340 Gaming laptop but it came with 1 TB spinning HDD and I knew it had an M.2 slot for SSD installation, so I order Crucial MX500 SATA III M.2 500 GB SSD, tried installing it, and while it got into the slot, it is not being detected by laptop (although I do see red light blinking on the SSD), so I'm not sure if it is a dead SSD or an incompatible one. Can someone help me with the same?

Hi kushalpandya,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Checking with the product specs sheet shows that the m.2 has to be a M.2 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 4, 32Gb/s (e.g. xxxGB SSD M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe).

 

M.2 SATA may fit but it not supported by the machine. Best to replace it with a PCIe NVme 2280 SSD instead.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Thanks! I'm thinking of ordering CRUCIAL P1 500GB 3D NAND NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD (CT500P1SSD8), will that be supported?

Hi kushalpandya,

 

Greetings.

 

Can't really guarantee 3rd party parts unles its OEM recommended but checking with its specification looks like it will be supported just fine.

 

Crucial do have a good return option just in case but I am optimistic that this would work ok for your upgrade.

 

Regards

Is there an official supported upgrades list anywhere for this laptop that I can refer to?

Officially it is not upgradeable at all because no part is listed as a Customer-Replaceable Unit in the Hardware Maintenance Manual (it doesn't disclose what is what, so it most likely isn't a CRU). This HMM also doesn't list compatible parts. Plus, they usually don't limit exactly which SSD can be used. It should be fine as long as it is a M.2 NVMe SSD. Same goes for the capacity. What most people here list are the "official selling specifications". This doesn't mean that, for example, the slot is limited to 128GB or something to that effect. The capacity and compatibility are not based on that. Whatever you will put in there will work when it is NVMe.

Hi kushalpandya,

 

Greetings.

 

Official offered parts for the model is listed here.

You can filter the Commodity list to Solid State drives as it will list certified tested part for the laptop.
