Can i upgrade Lenovo IdeaPad 100-15?

Hello. I have a Lenovo IdeaPad 100-15 IBD. 
The question is: is it possible to insert an additional, second memory bar into it for 4GB (that was 8) and
whether it is possible to insert the SSD into 128GB in addition to the HDD?

This post should answer your Ram question.

You have only 1 HDD slot.  You can have a HDD spinner or a sata SSD. You MAY be able to remove the ODD and add a caddy holding a SSD. Someone else could state if this is possible in your machine. 

 

Could you state your full model number? This may help in knowing if you have soldered ONBOARD memory.

 

Additional comments:

The hardware maintenance manual lists 4GB soldered, 4GB sticks and 8GB sticks.

The above post states 2GB soldered.

If  4GB soldered, you can add 4GB stick.

If 0 soldered, the socket can hold a 4GB stick or a 8GB stick. 

 

Dowload CPUz:

Use SPD tab to see current memory specs. Post a screen shot of slot#1. If slot#2 is populated, also post that screenshot.

Did you mean to post another screenshot, showing if the other slot is populated?

The 2.png screenshot shows physical 4GB stick from Hyundai Electronics, OEM memory per HMM, located in CPUZ slot 2.

 

If the other memory slot 1 does not show a part number or display at all,  you have no SOLDERED memory. You would remove the 4GB Hyundai and replace it with a 8GB stick.

 

Service training video to remove/replace memory stick:

From HMM:

Item 6 shows partial HDD list and SSD part.

Item 7 shows ONBOARD memory part numbers and physical memory sticks.
