This is my first question. Hope it has not been answered.

If I'm to unlock the Bios, can the Lenovo IdeaPad 500 be connected to an external powerful GPU?

 My laptop came equipped with 2 Nvidia GT 750 one soldered to the Intel Graphic  card and the second one removable.

Hi!

Unfortunately i don't know if unlocked bios can help you with connecting to an external powerful GPU. But you can try it. You can send me your file backup of bios, then i will unlock Lenovo whitelist, and unlock additional hidden settings, then you can check if it help you.

Hello there,

 

I am new to this forum.

 

I have a lenovo g500 and want to unlock the bios.

 

I did run the test and here are the results.

 

What I want is to disable intel boost and set the clock manually as well as possibly figuring out the best undervoltage for the specifi cpu (i5-3230M)

 

It is a crappy computer, but I still want to get a bit more juice out of it.

 

Also, I have a very bad gpu (intel hd graphics 4000) but still would like to access its settings (not the intel standard menu), and XTU will not access it.

 

Finally, my hard drive is underperforming by a lot ( Seagate Momentus Thin 5400, 9, 2.5'' 500GB) and I was wondering if you could think of anything I could do beyond replacing it

Let me know if you need more info about the bios version and such, or you already gather all that from the rar file.

 

THanks a bunch,

Konos Vita

 

p.s. tried to attach the file but it's 2.17 Mb and I am only allowed up to 1024k apparently

Hi!

Unfortunately unlocked bios don't help in your case.  I recommend you to create new thread where you can ask about more juice for your laptop.

Oh that's too bad then. I suppose you got this from the results right? I will create another thread, but truth be told if I cannot access the cpu clock, there's not much I can do beyond that, having the latest bios et al. But thanks anyway!

For prepare unlocked bios you should send me your file backup of bios, because each bios mod is personal, based on your file bios backup, and contain personal information like UUID, serial numbers, Service Tag, Windows keys, MAC address, e.t.c.

For creating backup of bios use attached program. Extract attached archive directly on the Desktop and run the program as Administrator (right click mouse). Program will create archive "results" directly on the Desktop. Send me this archive "results" via PM or upload it to any fileserver and send me the link.

      Hello guys ...

      i wanna make sure that everything is going to work fine with my laptop so i got some questions

      First of all my laptop is Lenovo Z51-70
      CPU: I5-5200U 2.2ghz
      iGPU Intel HD 5500
      dGPU:AMD R9 M375
      Ram: 8GB (will raise it to 16GB)
      HDD: 1TB stock one
      SSD: 120GB (for my games and windows only)

      now i investigated  a little about eGPUs and found that i need a M.2 or thunderbolt, i've found that my wifi card use a M.2 a/e key aka ngff, so i will be using the GDC Beast NGFF version

      to the bad part / question part

      What do i need to know other than the stuff above?
      what is the white-listing thing? i found on support forums that my laptop support some wifi cards only and it's bios cann't be modified according to bios modifying forums (not here)
      in same time saw some posts on reddit that says if ur bios have UMA graphic option then you will need to disable PAX / WIRELESS and enable UMA and it will work fine, the question is that true?

      i wasn't able to find anyone who did it on Z51-70 i found only 1 post on reddit for Z41-70 (which after research found that both are using same M.2 a/e key slot and also same bios... but the one who posted only replied that it's recognized with some errors and never replied back with any updates so still not sure about it.....

      Hi everyone,
      Does anyone know how to make a modded bios with maxwell bio tweaker?
      My problem is, that I want the basic clocks for my system, but just want to be able to verclock past the 135MHz limit.
      So I don't want a permanent OC.
       
      My specs:
      Medion Erazer x7841
      GTX 970m 3GB
       
      Thank's in advance!

      It's locked & hidden by default, but I've got an i7 8700k & I'd like to utilise the intel 'quick sync'/hardware acceleration in Adobe encoding in order to speed up rendering. You don't need to have a display connected to it for it to work (i believe), but it's really fustrating how it is locked out, as it means I'm missing out on quite a useful time saving feature.
       
      Is there any way to activate or mod this?
       
      Thanks!

      Flashing Overview:
       
      - Go to the device manager -> 'Display Adapters' -> chooser your GPU, right click on it and choose disable
       
      - Flash the VBIOS with mnvflash, a modified version of nvflash (see attachments). Below are detailed instructions for nvflash in case you aren't familiar with it.
      - After the flashing is done: Enable the GPU once again in the device manager.
      - Reboot
       
      Detailed Instructions:
       
      As soon as you see the command line you're ready to go, write
      dir and hit enter to display all the files on the USB drive.
       
      Display all Nvidia adapters in the system:
      nvflash -a  
      or alternatively the longer version of the command:
      nvflash --list This command will return you a list with all Nvidia adapters present in your system.
       
      Here's an example output of this command run on my M15x with a 680m in it:
      NVIDIA Firmware Update Utility (Version 5.117) NVIDIA display adapters present in system: <0> N13E-GTX (10DE,11A0,1028,02A2) H:--:NRM B:02,PCI,D:00,F:00 The number in the <> brackets is the index of the corresponding device. SLI users will have more than one entry and flash each card separately.
       
      Backup your current VBIOS:
      Never forget to keep a backup of your original VBIOS before you flash anything non-stock. Use this command to save a copy of the firmware to your USB drive:
      nvflash -b filename.rom or with
      nvflash --save filename.rom  
      Flash the VBIOS to your card(s):
      For a single card it's really straight forward, you don't need to worry about the adapter indices. Just use this command:
      nvflash -6 vbiosname.rom -6 will allow you to override mismatches of the PCI subsystem ID. In case of a mismatch you'll need to confirm the flash with 'y'. NOTE: Users with a non-US keyboard might need to press 'z' or similar, because the 'y' isn't at the same location for all keyboard layouts.
       
      SLI users will need to flash each card separately. The concept stays the same, but you will need to use the corresponding adapter index to flash a card. How to figure out the adapter nr. is described above.
      Flashing goes like this:
      nvflash -i[index] -6 vbios.rom [index] represents a number, namely the index you found with the 'nvflash -a' command. So a command example to flash a card which has index 0 is: 'nvflash -i0 -6 vbios.rom'

      In case you want to buy me a beer
       
      Thanks and cheers!

      Has anyone unlocked the final bios release for the M14X R2 yet? I've been searching but can't seem to find anything. If not, would it be possible for someone to unlock it and add the unlocked VBIOS for those of us still enjoying these machines? File link below for simplicity (too large for me to attach). Thanks in advance!
