Yoga 500 14ISK not boot after upgrading with 8GB Ram

Hi everybody.

I have a Yoga 500-14ISK model notebook. I bought one of these Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB http://www.crucial.de/deu/de/yoga-500-14isk/CT7972028 as i can see it's ok with my model number. When i use this ram i cant boot. There is no beep sounds either by the way.

 

When i change back to old ram module everything is fine. I think it maybe ram module is broken. İ have 2 of same ram module installed and working my other Loptop which is also lenovo (Z50-70). So i get one of the working module. But i have some issue.

 

Then i installed module to z50-70 its working fine.

 

My BIOS up to date with D3CN32WW version.

 

Any suggestions?

Re: Yoga 500 14ISK not boot after upgrading with 8GB Ram

Hi Delirmen , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums . 

 

The memory specifications for this model for the RAM:

8GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket .

 

The board supports  1.35V RAM socketed Low powered RAM .

As if you get a DDR3L , dual capable to work on a DDR3 or DDR3L socket boards.

 

Hardware manual parts list (item 9 page 84) showing recommended memory modules that would work best. 

If you can have them replaced with similar specs but with DDR3L instead. 

 

Update us how it goes. 

 

 

Regards

Hey there Delirman,

It seems Lenovo has a requirement that only certain OEM-approved peripherals and hardware work? The Crucial site also lists the MX200 SSD as compatible with the Yoga 500 as well but users are reporting only Lenovo-sanctioned Samsung EVO 850 SSDs are working, and the Crucials are failing to boot the system.

 

It could be that the same is the case for your Crucial RAM? Can you confirm the Crucial chip is indeed DDR3L (1.35V) PC3-12800 SODIMM which is what the Yoga 500 has?

Hi thanks for answers.

The crucial module is 1.35 V low voltage ram. I guess the problem caused by ram cl timings. I chance module with infinity branded cl11 instead pf cl9 and its worked.

thanks for answers again.

cheers.

Hi Delirmen , 

 

Great that DDR3L cl11 works for you . In terms of timings , although it can affect performance , in most cases low voltage ram compatible to the sockets would allow post and boot and the timings are controlled by the chips automatically making it work nonetheless. But since that worked for you changing the timings , then that would be the most important thing to take note of .

 

Please feel free to post or share your ideas in our community at anytime. 

 

Best luck to all your endeavors.

 

 

Cheers

Hey it is not so strict, I upgrade KingStone DDR3L 1800 8Gb and Lite-on Plexter SSD 240, running fine
