Hi Klem,

I have a Lenovo x250 - do you also help there?

https://www.dropbox.com/s/d2h3onht6xisgji/moddedx250bios.bin?dl=0

 

I modded the bios myself to enable a screen whitelist. But now it beeps in goups of five two times. I think I need to rehash the BIOS, but can't find out how. Can you help here or explain how I could do that? Also, the advanced menu would be a nice thing, I also haven't found how I could do that.

 

Cheers

Hi!

2x5 beeps after install any modified bios, it's normal for this laptop model, because this laptop model have special TPM/Security chip, every time when laptop start, this chip will check special RSA signature.
When the BIOS integrity test fails, a sequence of 5 whistles is issued twice at boot.
After modifying to remove whitelist (enable unauthorized WI-FI cards), enable advanced menu, etc. the BIOS can't pass the integrity test (because bios was modified), and therefore sequence of 5 whistles is issued twice at boot.

In this case, I know only this way:

Disable TPM/Security chip (in bios setup menu) before and after flashing.

Pull out CMOS battery and wait 5-10 min to reset NVRAM data.

Set Intel AMT module (in bios setup menu) to Disabled.

Finally! 

I took off cmos battery (and all other including power cord) for 20 minutes.

putted it back - got no luck 5 beeps again.

Assembled all back.

Started using OS X Mojave.

and... after some reboots beeps are gone!! Thank you so much! u made my day!

btw don`t you know is there any way to make DW1650 BCM94352Z work in windows 10? it does not find any netwroks in lenovo x240 laptop.

(this adapter works with OSX at the same laptop) I found the solution for Linux.. but not for Windows here - https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/307738-bcm94352-working-in-osx-but-not-in-windowsoo/?page=2

      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.
