Hi Klem. I have a T440s with error at onboard RAM. Can it fix (disable onboard RAM) by a modded BIOS?

Hi!

I think you can try to disable one memory channel (where connected onboard RAM). This setting presented in hidden advanced menu, in unlocked bios.

Hi @Klem

 

I want to install hackintosh in my T440p, so can you help me get the WLAN whitelist removed? as well as the Advanced Menu unlocked.

My Bios Version is 2.55
I used a SPI programmer CH341A to dump my BIOS from W25Q32FV chip.

 

Thankyou...

Hi!

No, if you will upgrade your CPU, then you don't need reflash bios, all should work without any problems.

Thanks klem, but i placed the new CPU and my laptop stay with a black screen and the power button stay green.

What's the problem:  CPU? I reflash with original bios? Or another thing before that....

Thanks for your help

Yes, if you changed one Haswell core i7 CPU to another Haswell core i7 CPU, and after laptop can't start, it's mean that you meet with some hardware problem.

Yes, as you can see in your photo, the processor is not fully latched. You need to remove the cooling system from the processor again, pull the processor out of the socket, check all the processor pins, then insert the processor into the socket correctly (be sure to correctly align the special marks on the processor and the socket), make sure that the processor entered the socket smoothly, without distortions, and fix it in the socket by turning the locking screw so that the arrow points to the closed lock icon.

Big thanks Klem!!! I fixed the screw with a better tool. I turned the screw at maximum. All is great now! No need to change your modded bios, i have a big CPU now with windows and catalina ;)

Thanks!

Hi! I bought for mistake a t440p without the webcam, so i decided to look for the fru webcam codes and bought one, two, and this is the third and i changed the webcam cable to try to get my cam module working. I'm an it tecnician and i always try to be carefull when disassembling things. I can't understand why for the hell this stupid thing doesn't want to function. It shows up in windows (and functions correctly) only as microphone! I enabled the webcam module in the bios and installed all existent drivers on the earth. I tried to test my last webcam part with a linux distribution....lsusb should show me at least some kind of device but it doesn't show anything....(maybe i have to look for it a bit better).

Could it be blacklisted in bios?

      I have a iBuypower CZ-17 laptop, with a 2012 AMI BIOS that has E1762 as the version, which I believe means I have an MSI G70 motherboard. It has a 675MX GPU, but it's not useable in Windows 10 despite being "seen" in the device manager. I believe an updated, unlocked BIOS would fix my issue and have located the thread on this site with the BIOS I need.

      First of all, am I right? Will this fresh BIOS make my laptop that originally ran Windows 8 work with this old GPU?

      And second, I created this account, will wait 24 hours and made this post. Is that enough to allow me to download the file, or do I need to post elsewhere?

      Thanks!

      A part of my BIOS got corrupted that controls my laptops backlights. Other methods like the Gary Key fix did not work for me because I do not get any light up during post. i followed this guide  that says I need to extract and use the 6MB portion of an 8MB bios dump, only AFUWIN tells me "Error, ROM file size does not match existing BIOS size which is because my laptop BIOS size is only 5.87MB.  I don't need to flash the whole BIOS, I only need to flash a portion of it. 
       
      I've searched everywhere online for a dump of my laptop model but non exist that I know of.

      I fiddled around with modding my laptops BIOS to unlock XMP profiles and hopefully seeing if optimus could be disabled. After flashing my modded bios and trying it out, I noticed that my keyboards backlight no longer turns on. I was unaware it requires an official BIOS to function. They backlights wont turn on unless ASUS ATK package is installed but now it seems it also needs an official BIOS?
       
      The modded ROM and tool I used if anyone has any experience with this and doesn't mind telling me what to enable/disable, or anything else i can do to re-enable them

      To install the unlocked bios, I prepared and booted a freedos usb. I start the installation by typing flash.bat but every time I get the following error: Error 28: Protected Range Registers are currently set by BIOS, preventing flash Access. Please contact the target System BIOS vendor for an option to disable Protected Range Registers.
      How can i solve this problem ?
