Hi Klem,

 

I been  keeping tabs on this thread and I bought a SPI programmer just for this and I really need your help in removing the whitelist for the display for my X240. I've bought a screen that doesn't tally with the service part FRU so I am not able to control my brightness anymore. I've dumped it and I would love if you could also unlock the additonal settings too!

P.S I've a X1 Gen 3 and a Lenovo X201, will you be able to unlock additional settings for both of them and remove the supervisor password for it as well if i dump them? 

 

Thanks so much for your help!

Hi!

Ok. Check PM.

Hey, I have an x240 and I'd like to replace the wifi card to a DW1560 to have 5ghz wifi. Can you perform the whitelist removal mod? Here's the link to the eeprom dump: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BK-C0wc0IxZjDmftOxsBloxDa_7vGhft/view?usp=sharing, I dumped it three times and the md5sum was the same every time. Machine type: 20AM-S4JL00

Thanks in advance. You can DM me if you need any info about my laptop like a serial number.

Hi, I've had some problem while updating my lenovo x230's bios so it's bricked. I buyed a ch341a pro black edition with SOIC8/SOP8 test clip for flash eprom and unbrick it but i didn't find any information on the web. I read that this version of ch341a provide a voltage of 5v but this eprom need 3.3v so i could burn it. Could you please give me some help for understand how i can flash the eprom using this programmer (pin side, how and which pins plug, program to use, etc..)? I have yet the bios bin file. Thank you so much in advance.

If you meet with some problems during read or verification bios dump from bios chip, then try use  AsProgrammer 1.4.0, or Postal, or Colibri. I placed all different software versions in to this link:  https://www.sendspace.com/file/0ptob7

      Hi guys, I am the proud owner of a Clevo p775dm3-g notebook purchased from azom.systems (authorized Clevo reseller in India, Model rebranded as Azom Legion-17.3 inches). Here are my specs:

      Core i7 7700 (non-K version): undervolted by 110 mv and turbo boost disabled in BIOS- machine uses prema mod BIOS.
      GTX 1080: undervolted by 100 mv on all frequency steps using MSI afterburner voltage/frequency curve editor. clocks are untouched.
      16 GB DDR4: Cant remember clocks.
      1440p 120 Hz screen: No tinkering done to refresh rate.

      CPU has been delidded and repaste has been done on both CPU/GPU dies with gallium based TIM-Coolaboratory liquid ultra if I recall correctly.

      My issue is GPU hitting max temp limit of 90 degrees while playing DOOM and framerate drops from 110 avg to mid 60s-70s with horrible stuttering- this is thermal throttling for sure.

      System was running beautifully after repaste at 86 degrees max/ 77 degrees average at 100 percent fan speed. A month later I decided to see how much further I could push the system and ended up undervolting the CPU/GPU and RAM even further. The RAM undervolting part didnt work as well as I'd hoped, and I ended up resetting the BIOS to undo everything and reapply the previous setting (-110 for CPU with turbo boost disabled.) 

      I noticed that immediately after BIOS reset, both my CPU and GPU temps were 5-10 degrees higher even with the undervolt/underclock applied. Also, I think the fans were a bit louder before I reset the BIOS which leads me to believe that for some reason the fans are now capped at 80% max fan speed. There doesnt seem to be a fan speed selector in the BIOS or anywhere else so I cant say for sure whether this is a fan related issue or something else.Before the reset I could override the BIOS setting and set the fans to 100% by pressing fn+1, could I have done something to that setting after resetting the BIOS ? I dont think I have damaged the CPU or GPU as temps are holding fairly steady at 90-91 degrees and laptop doesn't shut down while gaming.

      If I have overlooked something or if anyone reading this has any solution help would be greatly appreciated.
      All settings/drivers/windows version/app version are exactly the same before and after BIOS reset.

      Hey guys, I have an Alienware m14x R2, and I have been trying to get access to the BIOS so that I can change the boot options (Everything is locked, I am unsure if someone set a password of if these are locked by default).I've tried updating the BIOS, and resetting the CMOS and nothing has changed this. Would anyone know if there are other options I can explore? Thank you.
