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 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.
