      I know, i know, i know... @svl7 said it's disabled, @octiceps said it's disabled and many other forum users said it's disabled.
       
      I am always want to double check everything and i did it this time too. And i would like to post here result of my research. But first thing first - my PC:
       
      Laptop Configuration: Lenovo Y500 SLI
       
      CPU: Intel i7-3630QM (2400-3400 MHz, Ivy Bridge, QuadCore)
      VGA: 2x 2048Mb NVIDIA GeForce GT650M (SLI Configuration)
      MB: Compal LA-8692P
      RAM: 2x 4Gb Ramaxel RMT3160ED58E9W1600 (11-11-11-28)
      HDD: 1TB Seagate Momentus 5400 (ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBB)
      SSD: 120 Gb Samsung 850 EVO (MGX S4LN062X01)
      Display: 15.6" LG\Philips LP156WF1-TLC1 (1920x1080)
      WIN: MS Windows 10 Pro (x64)
       
      Also i must say, that i have got UNLOCKED BIOS by @svl7. And for second VGA too.
       
      Research
       
      It's beginning from @geraldthread about his Ultrabay to PCI-E Adapter for Lenovo Y510p for useing Radeon Desktop VGAs as external VGA. It's performed well with Y510p, but there was zero info about how it perform on Y500 or will it perform at all (now we know that it's no, but it's another story). Unlocked BIOS didn't help with adapter and i decided to dig more deep in re-enabling integrated GPU in Intel CPU - Intel HD Graphics 4000. And new unlocked BIOS give me a lot of new options to play. But important thing is... some of them working, some of them no. So, here is what i am founded.
       
      First i go to new unlocked BIOS and saw there a lot new tabs.

       
      I go to Advanced => Video Configuration => Special Features


      This option already was Enabled (Switch Graphic Function)
       

      After that i go to Internal Graphic Device and Enable Internal Graphics Device.
       
      Then save changes and exit. Laptop is shutdown and after few seconds turn on again. I saw Lenovo loading screen and then nothing when loading complete. Windows didn't start.
      I am restarted laptop three times and it's started recovery mode. From recovery mode i am loaded Safe Mode and at that point i am finally was at Windows.
       
      My first way goes to Device Manager to see new device. And there was new device - Intel HD Graphics 4000.

       
      In safe mode windows can't access to it's current status, but there also was no error codes. First time there was no driver installed, but now it's even have last driver!

       
      After that i go to AIDA64 Engineer Edition and look what it's show me. It's saw iGPU!

       
      So, at this point i don't what to think about it. I can see iGPU in safe mode, but i can't boot with it in normal Windows. Is AIDA64 lie to me or even Device Manager?
       
      What do your think about it?
       
      P.S. Oh yeah, most menus on Russian language, but i hope your got the idea and trust me. =) It's no fake.

      Sup everybody
       
      A few months back, I bought an Alienware GTX 780m to replace my ASUS GTX 460m that was in my ASUS G53JW laptop. I had zero knowledge or experience, but thanks to all the guides you wrote, the card immediately worked after flashing an ASUS GTX 780m vbios onto it. The fans were controlled, and my graphics performed many times better than it did before. The only issue was that HDMI stopped working.
       
      At the time, I didn't need HDMI, but now I do. Can you help me out?
