Can someone clarify me if my Lenovo Z500 with I7-3612QM CPU and 8 GB RAM , 1T hdd , 740M Gpu , can support an upgrade to graphic card , and if the motherboard suports SATA 3 for an SDD upgrade , cuz„ i`ve buyed one and its not detecting it , or maybe i didn`t do the BIOS settings right or what can i do/choose. Tnx for reading .

GPU is not upgradable.

 

you bought SSD in mSATA form factor, or regular 2,5" SSD?

Do you have Windows 8 or 8.1? If yes, they have something called UEFI boot, which puts some information on hard drive.
