Ram Upgrade for Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro or other Performance Upgrade

I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro with the i5 4th gen processor and 4gb of ram. 

 

I am having issues using Sony Play Memories with my action cam. Saving and playing back videos is choppy and loading takes a LONG TIME! I was told when I purchased my Yoga 2 Pro at Best Buy that the memory could be upgraded to 8gb of ram. Several months after the purchase (now) I am discovering that this isn't possible!  I am very frustrated.

 

Is there any way to upgrade the performance of my Yoga 2 Pro so that it will playback videos and games better?

 

Please advise!  Thank you!

Re: Ram Upgrade for Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro or other Performance Upgrade

You can't upgrade the ram, as it is soldered to the motherboard.

What sort of videos are you watching? also are you running the laptop in performance mode in power manager? also what sort of video playback software are you using?

Re: Ram Upgrade for Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro or other Performance Upgrade

I am watching HD videos that I took with my Sony Action Cam. They are in 1080P 60 frames per second.  I am watching them via Windows Media Player.  It takes a long time to play and pauses for a considerable amount of time if I click to fast forward to a different time on the video.

 

Also when I edit using Sony Play Memories it can take a LONG time. Sometimes the software won't start up. I also have that problem with Windows Media Player. Sometimes when I click on a video it won't open.

 

My Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro also seems to have some issues playing Minecraft with the graphics settings turned up (any amount past the standard.)

 

I have the computer in "Performance Mode".

Use Media Player Classic Home Cinema or VLC Player, that might work better.
Minecraft: lower in-game settings. That will do it.
