Lenovo Yoga 500 - Pentium Processor + 4G RAM

2017-05-22, 15:36 PM

It's really SLOWWWW. Can anyone tell me the best way of speeding it up? Will adding 4G of RAM make any difference if the processor is pentium?
It thinks about every instruction for about 2 mins before it acts.

Cheers for any ideas you might have.

Hi ptc2017,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


As per specification (page26): 

1,600 MHz SODIMM × 1 (max 8 GB) 

This 8 GB ram to replace current 4GB (single slot available) would help with multiple browsing.


It would be best to run bootable diagnostics to check further on its hardware integrity as well as performance outside its custome operating system to differenciate the performance issue. 


If multiple application is the probable cause then running the machine in safe mode can help differenciate it.

Placing the system in clean boot can decrease amount of non essential processes running in the background.


The processor may not have the best benchmark but would still do the job on most office documentation and quick browsing. Above highlighted steps would help identify more about the issue.
