Yoga 710 15" RAM Upgrade

Hi,

I'd like to upgrade the RAM on my new Yoga 710 to 16GB, from the included 8GB.

Where is the RAM located on the Yoga 710?  Is it accessable directly after removing the back cover?

 

Thanks!

Hi there, Defiantly -

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

Yes it is accessible. Please go through the HMM for better understanding on hardware.

See the below pic:

Note: As per the Lenovo policy, the warranty will be void if the laptop is dismantled by yourself. Hence kindly visit the nearest service center for further assistance. I would recommend you to contact Lenovo service center for hardware assistance.

 

Update us how it goes.

Perfect!  Thanks!!!  The guide you linked to made the process much easier.  Although, it did take me a few minutes to figure out how to remove the "DDR Shield" (Picture attached).  I ended up using the Torx screwdriver in the small holes on the sides of that metal shield to pry it up.  After that, it was a standard RAM upgrade.  That DDR shield then snapped back in place.  The 710 booted right up afterwards without issue.  Windows reports 16GB installed.

Thanks again!

Can you please advise which exact RAM model you bought and what was the cost to put 16GB?

Standard Screwdrivers?

In addition to Shashi_Lenovo's information there is a Lenovo Training Video for the Yoga 700 14 that helps demonstrate the accessing of the memory modules.  The information provided should also apply to the Yoga 700 15 model since both models have the same Hardware Maintenance Manual.   Here is a link to that training series.....

According to Lenovo you can.  I have  the 710 15 and you can order direct from Lenovo on their website if you live in the US.  If you live in Canada as I do, Lenovo Canada and Lenovo US will not sell you the 16GB stick which I would have preferred as the Lenovo website says it is a Samsung stick.
