Nice guide bud!

Way to make your fifth post count :D

I'm trying to get promoted. Do you have to start 5 new discussions to be counted as "posts" or can it just be 5 replies to the discussion??

Mine has been making some weird noise from the fan, and the worst part was, I thought I ordered a replacement part for it, but it turns out that the part was for a y400 when I took the whole thing apart and found that one of the screws for the cooling module didn't line up correctly. The first time taking apart this laptop is a bit of a pain, but it was a fun challenge nevertheless. To make matters worse, after putting it back together almost completely, the speakers were not recognized, so I had to open it up again and make sure everything was connected (which it wasn't) and then repeat the process of reassembling it again.

I have repasted the termal compound on my Y510P CPU and GPU but the temperature stayed the same. I also try adding washers to increase the pressure of the springs. The only other thing I haven't tried yet is reflashing my BIOS to a modded BIOS and undervolting my CPU/GPU. If only I can download the files needed. I will update after I find a way to do that.

Which thermal paste? 

 

DO NOT undervolt with modded BIOS. If you only want to undervolt use ThrottleStop. Use search funtion. It has been discussed a lot of times.

I almost broke my keyboard as well because I didn't see the other screw, lucky I figured it out as it's not supposed to require a lot of force to pull the keyboard out.

Could you confirm if the Y500 could adopt motherboard from y510? Do you know if they are compatible?

      Hello !
      I tried a tutorial on the forum to remove the supervisor password on a X260 thinkpad but the winbond 25Q128FVPQ chip is not recognized with the programmer CH341A and ASprogramer (does not detect automatically and not manually). Plugged into the motherboard with a soic8.

      Can you help me with detection?
      Can I find the password with the software or do I have to write it?
       
      Thank you so much !!!

      To install the unlocked bios, I prepared and booted a freedos usb. I start the installation by typing flash.bat but every time I get the following error: Error 28: Protected Range Registers are currently set by BIOS, preventing flash Access. Please contact the target System BIOS vendor for an option to disable Protected Range Registers.
      How can i solve this problem ?

      Hi!

      I would love to have my BIOS modded to disable the wireless whitelist.
      I tried to do it myself (dump BIOS from chip, disassemble, locate the reference to the error message "Unauthorized Wireless network card is plugged in..." memory address and modify the condition in the binary file so not to "land" in the infinite loop) but I couldn't dig to anything meaningful I could easily change.

      Laptop: Lenovo ThinkPad S440 (TYPE 20BB-S00400)
      BIOS version: 73ET71WW (1.71)
      Original WiFi/BT card: Intel Wireless-N 7260 (7260HMW BN) (vendor: 0x8086, device: 0x08B2, subdevice: 0x4262)
      Target WiFi/BT card: Broadcom BCM94352HMB (I haven't received it yet, waiting for delivery)

      Manufacturer BIOS download: bootable ISO, updater for Windows
      My BIOS dump (using CH341A SPI Programmer under Linux): http://www.mediafire.com/file/mn0gfr9ext7yqrn/S440_73ET71WW.bin/file
       
      Thanks!

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo Y50-70, Lenovo Y70-70, Lenovo Z50-70, Lenovo Z70-70, Lenovo G50-70, Lenovo G70-70.
      If someone want upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden additional menus and settings in bios setup menu, or unlocked vbios for overclock NVIDIA card, then you can post your request in this thread. Also, if you have a problem with fan pulsating/clicking on any modified bios then you can post your request in this thread.
       
      The flashing procedure include two steps:
      1.  Flash main system bios.
