Regarding Lenovo S340-14IWL upgrade to SSD + HDD and RAM

2019-10-28, 9:36 AM

Hello,

 

I recently purchased a Lenovo S340-14IWL Machine Type: 81N7. I have an SSD available with me. (SAMSUNG 2.5" 256GB SSD SATA3.0Gbps) Is it possible to install this SSD alongwith the existing 1TB HDD to my laptop and transfer the windows to the SSD without hampering the warranty.

Also i need to know if I can add an 8GB RAM with the below details:

 

Capacity:8GB Single Rank  |  Style:Crucial DDR4 CT8G4SFS824A is a 8GB single ranked DDR4 notebook module that operates at speeds up to 2400 MT/s and has a CL17 latency. It is an Unbuffered SODIMM . It conforms to the industry standard DDR4 SODIMM layout of 260 pins and is compatible with systems that take DDR4 2400MT/s SODIMM memory. Align the notch(es) on the module with the notch(es) in the slot, and then press the module down until the clips on the slot snap into place place.

 

also please clarify whether these activities can be done by me or need to take to some service centers.

Solved! See the solution

Hi Siljojose,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

There is only one SATA HDD slot which is occupied by the 1TB SATA HDD.

 

I cannot confirm a HDD caddy to replace the optical drive bay would work but can be an option. You can also add storage getting a M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD stick instead. 

 

The Crucial DDR4 8GB RAM can also be an upgrade added to the available slot onboard as shown here in the hardware manual (page 39). You can review the steps as described from the manual to check if it is something you can easily do or if you need help in the service center. 

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Thanks for your reply.
As I understand from your PM, warranty is also not an issue if I upgrade the laptop myself.
