M720 SFF M.2 and video card

2019-01-04, 18:51 PM

Hi, i am trying to find a manual or instructions on installing a new M.2 SSD (Samsung Pro 970) in a M720 SFF, but can't find anything...


Secondly....I purchased it with the GT 730 video card thinking it would support 3 monitors based on this link, since it is DDR5


but it only seems to support two.


Any help would be appreciated.

Here is the Hardware Maintenance Manual for the M720s SFF machine.


The information for replacing an M.2 storage drive begins on page 39.  Sorry but I don't know if all of the necessary mounting parts are present pre-installed (but empty of M.2 drive) from the factory if you don't actually order an M.2 drive from Lenovo.


However I will most likely find out for myself as I have just received a newly ordered M920t tower machine, without any M.2 drived ordered from Lenovo.  I intend to install my own Samsung 970 EVO in it and will soon find out just exactly what is or is not present so that I will have success or failure.


More results in an hour or so.
