Message 4 of I’d update the BIOS to the latest one, but be aware that any update of such nature carries the risk of bricking the machine if something goes wrong. If I wata only one module and put it in the top slot, the laptop doesn’t boot up and it gives a beep code error.

I mean isn’t there some limitation of the chipset or something?

I can’t perceive any difference even though benchmark results are slightly better. Sorry to bother you, but another question came to my mind – wil the machine satta a GB SSD drive? As I already have the drive I’m looking for a compatible laptop to put it in.


Alot of laptop manufacturers were probably in the same boat, as SATA cdroms are lbm recent thing. Search everywhere only in this topic.

Writing the message on it. I hate being played and that is what Lenovo did buy capping the satx speed and not informing the customer.
