Lenovo Y580 / Y480 'unlocked' BIOS versions

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, whenever I change the energy management to the 'Lenovo Dynamic Graphics' and play a game, it just freezes after a few minutes every time.

This didn't happen prior to flashing the unlocked 8.01 BIOS.

Is anyone else also having this issue?

check your temps, that could be an overheating-issue... (do you have overclocked the gtx 660m?) or it's just a driver related problem. update your graphic-drivers if you haven't got the newest.

I uinstalled the program lenovo dynamic graphics.. I find it useless and balance or high performance is already enough. not sure if this will help but it's worth a try!

Don't think it's a heat issue as it happens before the comp even has a chance to heat up. It freezes before I'm even out of the main menu screens. I'll just uninstall, thanks for the help guys.

Sorry n00b question here: How can I keep the command prompt screen from instantly closing after running the backup.bat file?

I'm running windows 8 and I currently have BIOS version 5DCN90WW installed. I was getting Error 284 for a while, but once I started running backup.bat as an administrator, the error has disappeared (there's no red text in the command prompt when it's open for a fraction of a second). I disabled Windows Defender and my separate antivirus program and the command prompt continues to close very quickly on it's own. Also, where does backup.bat spit out the backup file that is created (i.e. how will I know when the process has been successful)?

Not sure why it closes the windows... that's probably the default behavior when a .bat is run. Instead of running it by double clicking the .bat try to call it from the elevated cmd prompt.

The output should be in the same folder as the .bat file.

Again, my apologies (I really don't have any experience flashing a BIOS or using the command prompt, I'm just trying to get respectable wifi reception and speeds with my y580)--I think I've called up the .bat through the elevated command prompt and this is the message I receive:

C:\windows\system32>fptw64.exe -d-BiosBackup.bin -bios

'fptw64.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

operable program or batch file.

You need to navigate to the folder where you have the fpt tool and other files. I doubt they're in system32 ;)

The easiest way for this is navigating to folder where those files are, press and hold shift and then right click on the folder and choose "open cmd window here".

Else you can use the cd command from within cmd to navigate to your folder. E.g. if you have the fpt stuff saved in "C:\Users\username\Desktop\fptw" then enter

cd C:\Users\username\Desktop\fptw

and press enter to change the working directory of the cmd prompt.

Excellent, I was able to create a backup of my BIOS. I have a question about the Y580-Y480_BiosFix tool: following the on-screen instructions, I typed the name of my backup BIOS (BiosBackup.bin in my case), pressed enter, then typed the name of the modified BIOS file (v801.rom, in my case, obtained from the attachment named "Lenovo Y580 - Y480 BIOS v8.01 (5DCN90WW) - Mod.zip" from the first post) then pressed enter. A file named v801Fix.rom was created; however, v801Fix.rom has a size of 0 KB. Does it sound like everything was carried out without issue? Will this 0 KB v801Fix.rom file be the one that I eventually put on my DOS-bootable USB drive?

Also, in the next step (copying the fixed BIOS, the prr.exe tool, the fpt.exe, and fparts.txt to the USB drive), I understand that fixed BIOS is the file that was created using the Y580-Y480_BiosFix tool, the prr.exe is from the "prr tool" attachment (from first post), and the fpt.exe is from the "DOS version" flash tool attachment (from first post), but which fparts.txt should I use? From the attachments I've downloaded, I can see that there are three potential fparts.txt files: one that came with the FPT DOS attachment, one from the FPT Win64 attachment, and one from the 'Error 104' attachment.

------------Edit---------------

Actually, I just ran the Y580-Y480_BiosFix tool again and this time it created a file that is the same size as the the modified BIOS file before it was put through the tool (4,608 KB). I will proceed to copy this v801Fix.rom file to my DOS-bootable USB drive. However, I still don't know which fparts.txt file to use...

Hi svl7, I'm currently using Y480 with gt650m gddr5. As far as I know the only difference between gt650m d5 and gtx660m is core clock. So I'm wondering if you can also make an overlocked version of bios for gt650m users. I don't expect it to be overclocked that much to equal gtx660m,of course.

Thanks for your work !

just a short update from my side :3

wish i could change the clocks in the bios to these ones and a VDDC of max 1,115 V or 1,125 V... crysis 2 runs great, even with Maldo HD-Textures v4.0 Final... never goes under 40 fps... i made the screenshot of gpu-z after two hours playing crysis 2 with this mod

What's your vbios version? And bios?

I will proceed to copy this v801Fix.rom file to my DOS-bootable USB drive. However, I still don't know which fparts.txt file to use...

Use the one included in the FPT folder, if you end up with an error then use the one I provided (error 104 fix).

What's the current max clock you can set? I guess I can increase the voltage a bit, but temps will increase.

1300 mhz gpu and 3125 mhz mem.. but i'm running gpu at 1250 mhz and mem at 3125 mhz for maximum stability... just want a bit more voltage, so that these clocks are even stable for future

it would be nice, if these clocks are set in bios

i know that the temps will increase... but I still have the option to re-apply the thermal-paste

big thanks for your help!

wow 3125 memory.. not with stock voltage right?

my max was 1250 core/2900 memory and got 3,43* on 3dmark 11 and 13,000 3dmark vantage.

btw you were able to dismantle the y580 and re-apply fresh thermal paste on both CPU/GPU's.

I am afraid to take my apart as I have no experience in laptop hardware especially one that's soo tucked in tight.. lol u had to remove the keyboard right? :)

- - - Updated - - -

I am unable to clean the gpu/cpu fans without dismantling the laptop right? I tried pointing my compressed air can through the gpu airflow but it's too small )=

it is with stock voltage!

ny 3dmark 11 score was just a little bit higher then yours.. around 3,47* or something

haven't done it.. but i will buy some thermal paste and do it then

you have to remove nearly everything, like with the Y500.. take a look in this thread http://forum.techinferno.com/lenovo-ibm/2773-y500-disassembled-pictures.html

ah, what i forgot to say... if you would extract the VBIOS for me, i could try to mod it! if you find time you could repack the VBIOS in the BIOS and i would test it on my laptop!

lol +400 over original core and +700 over original memory... how long do u think our laptops will last with proper cooling/whatnot's lol I'd say 1.5 year tops..

btw ya I'm really scared I might break something when i try to take it apart... i'm screwed and none of my friends are techies..

Hi everyone :surprise:

My Y580 doesn't recognise my mSATA SSD since this morning ...

I tried on an other computer and it's working perfectly so I'm pretty sure that this issue is BIOS related ^^

Yesterday I decided to get back from the unlocked version of the bios (2.06) to the stock 2.07 because I had no need of the advanced fonctions.

It worked well and I was able to use my computer all the night before turning it off.

So I thing the stock BIOS can't handle the mSATA SSD.

But, since i can't boot on windows anymore, I was wondering if it was possible to flash the 2.07 unlocked bios using the DOS flash tool ?

The only problem i see is that the 2.07 is a .rom file whereas the flash tool need a .bin file ...

Any help apreciated ;)

Thank you !

what is that for an msata SSD? A Crucial M4?

if yes, it's definitely a driver-issue and not bios related. because crucial had a bad firmware.. but you can solve this problem, if you install the newest fimware ''07MH''

You're right : it's a Crucial m4 with the original firmware ...

The problem is that as the BIOS decided to not recognise it anymore, how am I going to update it ?

There is really no option to perform a bios update from DOS for the v2.07 version ?

then update your firmware... Sold State Drive (SSD) Support

select on this page your product, the ''Crucial m4 mSATA SSD''

then scroll down to ''Firmware Update 07MH''

download the firmware ''Manual Boot File for Windows and Mac''

under the download button is a simple installation guide, step by step for updating the mSATA SSD in DOS.

*the update should also works if the BIOS doesn't recognise the ssd.

yes, you can update the bios from DOS. you need a bootable USB-drive

but i would recommend you to get your Crucial-SSD working before updating your BIOS.

Ok, so I'm just about on the last step of flashing my BIOS, but I have a problem. I'm unable to boot from my USB drive in order to flash the BIOS. I prepared the USB drive as described in the instructions on the first page and then attempted to boot from the USB drive by holding down shift and clicking restart in Windows 8. Then, I click on the "Use a device" option and then the only option is "EFI USB Device." I click on "EFI USB Device" and then I get the message "System doesn't have any USB boot option. Please select other boot option in Boot Manager Menu." Then there are three options in the Boot Manager: 1. My hard drive, 2. EFI network 0 for IPv4, and 3. EFI network 0 for IPv6. I don't know what options 2 and 3 are, so I chose my HD and then the computer boots as it normally would.

      Required items:
      1.) Lenovo u310 (I have a Core i3 - Ivy Bridge, 8GB RAM)
      2.) 65CN99WW unwhitelisted.
      3.) eGPU (I used a EVGA GTX 750 Ti from another computer I had).
      4.) EXP GDC mPCIe Edition adapter (got from eBay - banggood seller).
      5.) ATX power supply (I used a 600W PSU from another computer I had).
      6.) USB wireless.
      7.) External monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
       
      Steps:
      1.) Obtain and install a unwhitelisted BIOS. If you are unable to obtain a unwhitelist BIOS, I think it might be possible to bypass it with Tech Inferno Fan's Setup 1.x (may need confirmation as I haven't used it myself yet.)
      2.) Shutdown computer and remove all USB devices, ethernet cables, power cables, card reader cards.
      3.) Remove mPCIe wireless card and detach antennas.
       
       
      4.) Attach EXP GDC external mPCIe cable to the former wireless slot and screw down.
       
       
      5.) Attach HDMI end of the mPCIe cable adapter to the EXP GDC device.
       
       
      6.) Attach graphics card to the EXP GDC device (I moved my laptop off the desk and onto the side shelf to make room on the desk for the monitor/keyboard/mouse).
       
       
      7.) Using the power cable adapters that came with the EXP GDC device, I hooked in my ATX power supply's 20 pin and CPU 4 pin cables. Then hooked the other end (8 pin) into the EXP GDC device. My EVGA 750 Ti also required that I use an additional PCIe power cable (6 pin) in the top of the card.
       
       
       
       
       
      8.) Then I attached my misc devices (HDMI monitor, USB keyboard/mouse/wireless adapter), and hooked in my PSU and powered it on (below is image of final product, also moved HDMI cable out of the way).
       

       
      9.) Power on your computer and let it install the standard VGA drivers and then install your drivers (I didn't have to go in the BIOS for any graphics settings, which it doesn't have anyways, nor did I have to disable iGPU in Device Manager before the card was added).
       
      Extra Info:
      I found that most games will play on med settings with about 45 FPS with this particular card.
      BDO: Upscale on - Anti Aliasing on - SSAO off - med settings.
      Skyrim: Med-High settings.
      Fallout 4: Med settings.

      ok, so, i have a serious problem atm.
      im trying to mod my bios so that i can go past the normal overclocking limit. however, everytime i try to do it, it always says "file size does not match existing bios size!", and it's really annoying, since i had to find everything myself, as no one else online tried this on my specific model, besides me. (which surprises me, really)
      this is the guide im following:
      So this is my detailed description how I managed to mod and overclock my GTX 960M in my Lenovo Y50-70. Please note: it is very dangerous to play with the BIOS, so you need to be very careful! I take NO RESPONSIBILITY for any damage or misuse of the information below! Use it AT YOUR OWN RISK!
       
      -------
       

      Necessary tools:
      A. Fptw64 from Intel (9.5 or above)
      http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=75024
      B. PhoenixTool (2.50 or above)
      C. Maxwell II BIOS Tweaker (1.36)
      https://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2562/maxwell-ii-bios-tweaker-v1-36/
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to flash Modded BIOS:
      0. Flash the latest (3.03 now) official BIOS
      1. From Windows, start 'cmd' as Administrator and read your your BIOS via Fptw64:
         Fptw64 -d BIOS.ROM -bios
      2. Reboot, enter your BIOS and check "Enable downgrading BIOS" feature (we need to downgrade first in order to flash the modded BIOS)
      3. From Windows, downgrade to 1.13 (this is necessary because the newer BIOSes have protection against mod-ding)
      4. After reboot & reflash, start Windows, then enter standby, wait a bit, then wake up the machine
      5. Create your modded BIOS, see separate list below
      6. Start 'cmd' as Administrator and write your _modded_ BIOS via Fptw64:
         Fptw64 -f BIOS_MODDED.ROM -bios
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to create modded BIOS (point 5 above):
      5.1 Start PhoenixTool.exe from Phoenix Tool 2.50 and open your previously saved original BIOS.ROM from point #1 above
       .2 The tool analyses it and shows some messages, click OK
       .3 Now you can find your vBIOS in the "DUMP" subfolder in the folder containing your BIOS.ROM, with the file name:
          BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597_1796.ROM
       .4 Create your modded vBIOS, see separate list below -> let's call it 960M_OC.MOD
       .5 Click on "Structure"
       .6 Open "EFI BIOS" tag
       .7 Open second "File Volume {7A9354D9-...}" tag
       .8 DXE Core -> Compressed Section -> Raw section -> File Volume {7A9354D9-...}
       .9 In the very long list, find the following tag (usually displayed at around 80% of the list):
          Freeform {BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597}
          This is the item containing the latest vBIOS
       .10 Open the tag, then "GUID defined section", then click on Raw section. "Internal number" (in the top right corner) should be 1796 for BIOS 3.03.
       .11 Click on "Replace" and select your modded vBIOS (called 960M_OC.MOD above)
       .12 Click exit "Exit" and say Yes to "Save changes?"
       .13 Close the Phoenix Tool; now you should have your BIOS.ROM updated (the original will be saved as BIOS.ROM.OLD for safety)
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to create modded vBIOS (point 5.4 above):
      Use Maxwell II BIOS Tweaker to change BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597_1796.ROM;
      5.4.1 Open the ROM
         .2 Change "Boost Clock" on "Common" tab to the new boost-ed maximum value
         .3 On "Boost table" tab, use the slider in the right bottom corner to increase your max boost-ed value to the same number
         .4 On "Boost states" tab, at P00 profile, change the MAX values in the GPC, L2C and XBAR fields to the same max boost-ed value
         .5 Save your modified BIOS and rename it to 960M_OC.MOD
       
      (My boost-ed max value was 1359 MHz. I could then use MSI Afterburner's software tuning -> my 960M could reach 1454 MHz without voltage increase.)
      i know that it's for a different laptop, but its basically the same
      ill provide more info when im home

      Hello,
       
      I want to share the modded Bios I created for the Acer Aspire E5-572G notebook.
      The official bios 1.09 was used as a base.
      I'm offering three flavours: Microcode 01, Microcode 07 and Microcode 21.
      Microcode 21 is the latest available microcode, this is the Bios you want to use unless you want the special properties of the other microcodes.
      Microcode 07 is the latest microcode that allows using the full turbo clock speed on all cores (using single core turbo with all cores).
      Microcode 01 is the one you should take if you want to try this. I wasn't able to get it to work on mine (i5 4210m, HM86), but your mileage may vary.
      In case you want to always use an older microcode, I'm offering a script for windows that'll keep the OS from using a newer microcode (compatible with Windows Vista to Windows 10). Frequency and other things can be set up with ThrottleStop (use the latest version).
      I've also included an overclocking enabled ME firmware that should (hopefully) allow overclocking on the HM87 equipped notebooks.
      There are two flavours of this notebook available: Ones that use the HM87 chipset and others that use the HM86 chipset. Overclocking is only possible with HM87 as HM86 isn't capable of overclocking (tested it myself).
      Additionally I offer a collection of Bios, EC, ME and FD files of this device, in case anyone wants to experiment with these for a bit (EC Modding, etc.).
      I will update this bios in case there are newer parts available.
       
      Any feedback is welcome!
       

      Features:
      -Advanced Bios Options unlocked (Advanced, Power tabs and additional options in the existing tabs)
      -Nvidia 840M/940M VBioses replaced with adapted 940MX VBios with unlocked TDP Limit, unlocked Boost Table and some OC (1306,5MHz GPU/1070MHz Memory - with general usability in mind) + all voltage sliders unlocked
      -Intel Management Engine: Updated to 9.1.37.1002 + All Locks Unlocked + Overclocking Enabled For HM87 Notebooks + PAVP (Protected Audio/Video Path) Enabled
      -Flash Descriptor unlocked
      -Microcode updated to version 21 (respectively downgraded to 07 and 01)
      -Intel GOP Driver updated to 5.5.1033
      -Intel VGA Bios updated to 1042
      -Intel RST OROMs updated to 15.1.0.2545
      -Realtek Lan OROMs updated to 2.037/2.64
      -Applied a few useful BIOS patches by CodeRush (Unlock CPU Power Management Register (useful for Hackintosh Users)/Disable BIOS Lock/Disable SMI Lock)
       

      Flash procedure:
      1. Copy the BIOS file to an empty and with FAT16/32 formatted usb stick.
      2. Unplug the AC adapter.
      3. Remove the battery of the notebook - you can unlock the battery on the backside.
      4. Plug in the USB flash disk.
      5. Press and hold <Fn> and <Esc>, and then plug in the AC adapter while still holding <Fn> and <Esc>.
      6. Press the Power button. You can now stop holding <Fn> and <Esc>.
      7. The BIOS flash should now begin, the fans will spin up at max speed and the power led should blink. It should take between one to two minutes.
      8. After everything is done, you can reinsert the battery and go to the BIOS (F2). There you may want to change some settings (the BIOS flash erases all previously chosen settings).
