First post. Hope this helps some of you. Now to change your power plan to ULTIMATE Performance. Just toss this in Powershell or Command prompt as ADMIN,
powercfg -duplicatescheme e9a42b02-d5df-448d-aa00-03f14749eb61
Then Check out your Power plan settings. Wifi power settings are great for performance.
I need help in fixing my Thinkpad.
I just got a T440p yesterday. It was working perfectly until the following:
I reinstalled Windows and then I installed Vantage.
I installed all the latest drivers.
I also choose to install the bios update. The bios update ran in Windows and it asked me to restart. After restarting, the screen was blank. I tried powering it off and on and I saw the Thinkpad logo but after that the screen was blank.
I tried powering on and off again and there's no Thinkpad logo now and the screen is just blank with the green power on. No sound, no nothing.
Here's what I tried:
Pressing the power button 10 times and then holding it for 30 seconds. Unplugged and battery is detachted Detached the CMOS battery and the reattached it Removed the ram, harddisk and optical disk drive. Attached the battery and inserted the charger. I turned it on and there was a couple of beeps Tried pressing FN+R and created a bootable USB I'd like to ask: How do I fix this? What do I need to do?
Can I reflash the bios in some other way? Do I need to buy a new motherboard? Will this solve the issue? It's my first thinkpad and I'm really excited but I was bummed out that this happened. Can you please help me?
Thanks in advance!
I tried a tutorial on the forum to remove the supervisor password on a X260 thinkpad but the winbond 25Q128FVPQ chip is not recognized with the programmer CH341A and ASprogramer (does not detect automatically and not manually). Plugged into the motherboard with a soic8.
Can you help me with detection?
Can I find the password with the software or do I have to write it?
Thank you so much !!!
(EXP GDC Beast v8.4d mPCI-E + GTX970 + ATX PSU) eGPU project for Lenovo IdeaPad Z710, i7-4700MQ, 16GB RAM, SSD, GeForce GT745MBy damianalex
I want to show you my new project.
I bought my laptop about 5 years ago. It was never speed deamon, but for every day use, it was enough to me.
Nvidia GeForce GT745M
512 SSD Adata SU800
Yesterday I bought Witcher 3. Of course on 1080p it's impossible to play, because of about 10fps
So I make a decision to buy external grahpic card.
I choose GTX970 and now I am looking for occasion to buy it.
I've already bought EXP GDC v8.4d mPCI-E. It is used and cost about 30$.
I will use ATX PSU to supply graphic card, because I have old desktop PSU at home.
1) unlock bios
2) buy GTX 970
3) enjoy Witcher 3!
BTW I try to cool down my laptop, so I replaced thermal paste to Kryonout Thermal Grizzly and make some tests. Temperatures and fps are on screenshots.
1) laptop on table, playing GTA V 1080p
- first minute (GPU core 1045MHz)
-after some time, because of high temperature and GPU throlttling (GPU core drop down even to 400MHz)
2) with thermalpad Glacier NC400 SilentiumPC
- 30 minute and longer (GPU core drop to about 900MHz)
3) without down case of laptop (like on picture with thermal paste) on thermalpad.
Here laptop never drops down MHz and max temp are about 72 Celsius degrees.
Bacause of that I bought second down case for my laptop and I will cut there additional holes.
I will describe next step when I get all stuff I need!
