Re: S10-3 / S10-3s 2GB Memory Upgrade didn't work

2010-10-23, 17:04 PM

Hey KalvinKlein,  tried again after reading your advice and now I'm up n running on the 2GB crucial RAM....big thanks to you. On initial start up with the 2GB in place, tapped F2, then F9 to load default settings, then save and exit, and bingo, boot up. Noticeably quicker with 2GB so worth the hassle in my opinion. Thanks again to all offering advice on this forum, much appreciated.

Re: S10-3 Ram issue / S10-3s 2GB Memory Upgrade didnt work

2010-10-23, 23:47 PM

Hello all.

 

I'm the proud new owner of an IdeaPad S10-3.

 

Model 0647 (sorry, I don't know the additional designation).

 

I pulled out the 1G Ramaxel memory and attempted to replace it with

2G Patriot PSD32G13332S.  Like many of you, the computer would

not even post after putting in the new stick.

 

But, after flashing the BIOS with the new file linked to on page 11 of

this topic, I have been successful.

 

My computer is now running normally with 2G of RAM.

 

I would like to give many thanks to all who have worked this issue.

 

You all have just saved me a trip to Fry's for a refund and at least a week or two

of waiting for a new stick to come in the mail.

 

Patrick

Hi All,

Thanks a lot for your experience sharing for others have the confidence to flash this bios. 2GB RAM is certainly a big plus for your netbook.

Anyway, i've updated another 2 more bios released for s10-3c and s10-3t.

The bios of s10-3s is in the process and i'll update the message in page 11 once the bios is published.

Thanks again folks.

Cheers,
Cleo

s10-3c ddr3 2gb memory upgrade problem

2010-10-28, 14:28 PM

Hi Cleo_Lenovo,

 

I almost tried all ddr3 sodimm available in the market (kingston, apacer, transcend, and a few more) but all didn't work, I was hoping that the bios update will solve my problem. I have successfully downloaded 3CCN13WW but when I ran it im getting "error : unable to load driver". What shall I do.

 

Thanks,

Dan

Hi drdizon and welcome,

be sure that your machine really is a S10-3c and not one of the other ..this message comes when your machine will not fit :)

bios update for 3 different machines ...

s10-3    bios v37 (2ACN37WW.exe)
s10-3c  bios v13 (3CCN13WW.exe)

s10-3t   bios v62 (24CN62WW-win.exe)

Important: Reboot your machine prior to bios update

Note: Please press F2 to access bios, then press F9 and load default settings in order to get machine works properly after new bios update. 

...please do not simply flash bios of which is not meant for your s10-3s.

a BIOS for S10-3s will be the next released as soon as possible :)

 

sincerely KalvinKlein

Re: s10-3c ddr3 2gb memory upgrade problem

Hi KalvinKlein,

 

Thanks for your reply. However it still didn't work. Here's the specs of my newly acquired Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3C:

 

1. MODEL: 20074

2. CPU: Intel Atom N455 1.66GHz

3. CURRENT BIOS VERSION: 3CCN09WW (v1.10)

4. EC Version: 3CEC09WW (v1.16)

5. CURRENT MEM: Samsung DDR3 1GB PC3-10700 (667MHz)

6. SN: DBxxxxxxxxx

7. OS: Windows XP Pro SP3 (downgraded from the orig. windows 7 starter)

 

From the new bios update selection I clicked s10-3c  bios v13 (3CCN13WW.exe) which I downloaded successfully. I rebooted the machine prior to bios update. I ran the exe file and this is what I got:

 

1. To ensure that no other program interferes with the BIOS update process, it is highly recommended to close all other programs before continue. I pressed OK.

2. Error : Unable to load driver.

 

I rebooted, accessed the bios setup, load the optimized default settings (F9), pressed yes, saved the config by pressing F10 then yes, and then the machine won't boot anymore. Hope I have provided you the complete info. Hope to hear from the team again.

 

 

Edit by mod : Please Dont show your serialnumber to public :)

Hi Team Lenovo,

 

In addition, I tried running the 3CCN13WW.exe file in some similar models and still got same result (error: unable to load driver). Maybe we can check the integrity of the uploaded file.

 

Thanks & Regards,

drdizon

Hi Team,

 

I'm writing to confirm that the bios update for the s10-3c model even when downloaded successfully is also not working in other computers of similar model. Actually, i bought a dozen of s10-3c for my engineers. I plan to upgrade all of them to 2GB but we've tried 7 different brands of ddr3 sodimm but to no avail. I hope to hear from the team soon about this technical support request.

 

Regards,

drdizon
