Re: New Ideapad 320 really slow?

2018-10-21, 12:35 PM

After the windows installed successfully, once boot into it and have the Internet connected, wait for few mins then the windows will automatically locate all the drivers back to the laptop.

I just downloaded and installed all the drivers on to a portable Hard Drive prior to doing the re-install.  It maintained Windows 10 home edition I'm pretty sure, you have to keep the version that was originally installed on that machine. When it asks for the product key you just skip it and then chose " I am Reinstalling Windows 10 on this PC".  I didn't have any dramas.. As I logged back into my microsoft account I'm pretty sure it kept the licensing information (Don't want to share that info on a public forum sorry).

Since we're on the topic of SSD's, I have a few real quick questions. 

1) What sockets do these ideaPads use exactly? Am I correct to assume it's SATA3?

2) What is the measurement of the drive? the only way to figure this out would be to take the device apart, but since some of you guys have done this already, I figured I'd ask. as for my 2 TB 5400 RPM drive, that will be bought a case, and it will be kept as a permenant portable hard drive. either that, or I might remove the dummy DVD drive, and put something in there, not yet sure. This isn't an old samsung or an old dell, where one can remove the DVD drive by pressing a latch, or unscrew the drive from the side of the laptop with a regular screw driver, so depending on how it's put together, the DVD thing might be slightly complicated.

Our hard disk thickness is 7mm and 2.5inch in length.

 

i am using a universal hard disk caddy google it up and it 9mm in thickness is believe

 

i have seen videos on YouTube that you can use your dummy dvd tray for a second hard disk caddy you will just need the proper sata connector search it on YouTube.

Of course an SSD will make any machine faster but my point remains - why should anyone have to go to all this trouble and expense just to get a new computer working decently?

 

This is an issue that Lenovo needs to sort out, not people who buy their computers.

Laptop hard disk is only 5400rpm that is why 320 or older version slows down.

you should have gotten the highest specs 320 and with nvme or ssd + hdd combo. All laptop i have encountered including the one with bigger gtx gpu ex. Gtx 1050 above us kinda slow when they only have the stock hdd that is why people are adding ssd’s to make their machine faster.

Have the same problem and at this point, don't know what to do.  I replaced the HDD with a cloned SSD which helped a little, but still very slow. Scrolling FB pages freeze and playback of video stutters. I was getting ready to upgrade the 4GB memory to 8GB then thought; maybe, I can replace the motherboard with a faster CPU; is this possible, does anyone have some other options to consider?

When upgrading the RAM on an Ideapad 320.

 

Please make sure the frequency is 2133MHZ, same frequency as the soldered on-board memory.

I tried to upgrade the RAM using a further stick of 2666MHZ, and it does not work..

 

Using an additional 4GB of 2133MHZ , it is very very good...

Re: New Ideapad 320 really slow?

Hi i am a new Belgian member. I was happy about my Lenovo G780 but after 4 years something happened with my screen so i desided to buy a new cheaper Lenovo. I expected him to be slower because unlike the G780 he dont run on Intel i5 but on AMD A4. I bought him for 340 Euro. Ones i got the laptop working at home after a normal but slow initialisation and very slow update i tried it out with no extra downloads at all except Skype. But to my sadness he started already up very slow, loaded the few things that started up very slow, was very slow in writing in the adress bar. Nothing on but Facebook made him lagging, Skype on made him freez totally. When i got called on Skype i could not even click to confirm on the invitation and he is so slow that i cant even do a full test included as a Lenovo service, he cant start it!. Ones he lagged bad i needed to restart but every time he was as slow. I thought something was wrong so i sent him in for repair. After 2 weeks i could collect him back in the same shop but all they did was a total reset to factory settings. But that helped nothing at all! He is still as slow, so much that i still use only the old laptop with a screen that push up the left side of the keyboard when opened. It is still better than the new laptop although also that 1 is slow now. In the shop i was refused to change this laptop for a more expensive 1, even if it was a Lenovo. So now i am paying off this laptop that is too slow to do anything without that i can use him. I completally lost all confidence in Lenovo now and as i read there are many more people who have the same experiance! WHY Lenovo sale such bad product is a mistery to many :(
