Lenovo Y580 / Y480 'unlocked' BIOS versions

Recommended Posts

If you unlocked the bios and then got the problems, I don't think it's something at the hardware side. But you could try it of course.

Just wondering if anyone has the modified BIOS and upgraded to Windows 10. Any issues?

 

Should I upgrade to Windows 10 first and then upgrade the BIOS or should I upgrade the BIOS first?

Hi, 
I would never thought that i could face such issue, but it happened. 

When i was flashing new bios, my pc froze because of driver. Simple BSOD. Hard turn-off didn't work and i had to unplug batter and AC. 
Now after i boot my computer i see only keyboard lit, fan is now spinning, screen is black.

Any advice?

Problem solved.

 

Looks like modern BIOSes has some kind of fail-safe mechanism. It slightly differs from pc to pc, and for Lenovo Y580 it will be like this:

 

The main idea of this fail-safe mechanism is to record BIOS rom file on flash drive with proper name so recovery system could read it and flash once again.

 

1.       Download official BIOS from Lenovo Support page

2.       Unpack it and take .ROM file (mine was QIWY3207.ROM)

3.       Download a special tool that will tell you what name should be used for this rom file (http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/13194-Tool-to-Insert-Replace-SLIC-in-Phoenix-Insyde-Dell-EFI-BIOSes), every laptop has its own name.

4.       Tool told me that recovery name for QIWY3207.ROM will be QIWY3.bi? but that wasn’t working, so I made several files with names: QIWY3.bi, QIWY3.bid, QIWY3.bin, QIWY3.rom don’t know which one worked.

5.       Record files on flash (I’ve used 16gb formatted in FAT32)

6.       Now detach AC cable, all USB devices, SD card and battery.

7.       Plug in flash drive

8.       Press FN + B and keep it pressed

9.       Attach AC adapter

10.   Press power button

11.   Now FN + B can be released.

12.   Laptop will spin-up cooler and start reading flash drive.

13.   For me, it started beepeing horrible, I had to wait for several minutes and then turned it off manually.

14.   After this laptop booted without problem into windows, where I re-flashed bios in usual way.

I ended up just paying for it.

I'm having the problem of not being able to downgrade the bios due to having the more updated version.

I've changed the bios version check to 0, but I think it's having issues before that.

      Hi folks,
        Greetings from Brazil!  Not sure I'm posting in the right place, but I have a question:  how do I find out the brand and model of my BIOS chip without having to open my laptop?  I can't find this information anywhere.  Been searching for days... I have a Lenovo Ideapad 300-15ISK 80RS (motherboard Paris 5A8).  Thanks a lot for your time and help! I really appreciate it!   Best regards,   JC.

      Well everyone...I have a confession to make-I flashed svl7 modified 970m vbios before I wiped my drivers! Everything seemed to run fine, I could game but noticed my clocks fluctuating a bit crazy. Figured I'd try a OC profile in afterburner while running a 27 27 26 26 clock in TS a bit stupid I know. Well 3d mark froze so I did a reboot...Black Screen on startup I heard windows boot so I feared I bricked my card. Tried external monitor..works fine. This is where my stupidity really hit the cosmos. I had another m15x 900p LCD laying around plugged that in. Worked fine back too overclocking bro! Well same thing happened. My profile was not overly crazy as I can remember. But I bricked another screen. Plugged in external monitor everything fine. I was using latest nvidia drivers 436.48 I believe. So I wiped drivers using DDU. Reflashed to stock clevo bios. Tried both LCD again still nothing. Installed old 7970m still nothing. Cleared CMos again nope. Reinstalled 970m with svl7 vbios with newest driver and been gaming on my external monitor. Have done some OC with inspector. Everything seems to work as it should. Temps and performance are great. Did I brick my monitors??? Never heard of this problem.
