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.
When my first CPU fan on Y500 is broke i replaced it on something compatible (non-original) and planned to replace it later on original. Since that time happened a lot things, but i still using that non-original fan. But i did some research and here is what i founded:
1. Forcecon (marked as FCN on fan)
DFS5413005MH0T-FC1C (5V - 0.5A)
Spotted in: Y400, Y500.
2. Asia Vital Components (marked as AVC on fan)
BNTA0612R5H-P007 (5V - 0.5A)
Spotted in: Y410p, Y500, Y510p.
3. Sunon (marked as SUNON MagLev on fan)
MG60120V1-C230-S99 (5V - 2.25W (0.45A))
Spotted in: Y410p, Y500.
So, which to choose? Any recomendation? Maybe there also unexpected way (completely diffirent fan from another company for another laptop)?
I recently bought the new Toshiba RC100 m.2 2242 NVMe SSD for my Lenovo Y510p which has an m.2 port in it.
After installation the SSD wasn't showing up in my BIOS and also not on my OS Win 10 disk management. So I did a bit of research and installed mod BIOS for my Y510p by following the steps in the link: ( https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/3546-lenovo-y410p-y510p-unlocked-bios-wlan-whitelist-mod-vbios-mod/ )
There are a lot more options in the BIOS menu now.
Even after doing the mod it's not showing up. The SSD works on my friend's "new 2017 dell gaming laptop" which has m.2 ssd support in it. I don't know what exactly to configure my BIOS to make it work. I've just done some hit-and-trial configs which have eventually failed.
If someone can help solve it Pleasee!!
P.S. : I can share all the available options available in the BIOS if required.
i have a z510 59398016 indian variant.
I had replaced the oem 1tb sshd on sata 3 port that came in it with 250 gb ssd 1 year ago.
now the optical disk drive on sata1 has gone haywire and i do not want to replace it as cd and dvd are obeolete and useless to me.
can some one suggest a caddy for z510 to use my old sshd in place of optical disc drive ?
would i be able to dualboot BW 2 drives if i do the above?
I tried caddy from local vendor but it is not getting recognised.
plz suggest some caddies compatible with z510
