Lenovo Y410p / Y510p - unlocked BIOS / wlan whitelist mod / vbios mod

Recommended Posts

Hmm, in this screenshot you have once again the problem that it only detects one flash part, the bios is on the other one...

It's odd that the same flash configuration works fine for others but you seem to have issues... need to think.

I can confirm this works for 1.07 bios. Has anyone overclocked their CPU and non-sli GPU? Mind posting your stable settings?

Really good stuff! I've been keeping an eye out for something like this for the Y510P that I picked up.

Keep up the wonderful work!

Does anyone know how to properly enable the xmp profiles for the ram? Whenever I enable it, the system does not boot.

Hmm... not necessarily all options that are hidden in the stock BIOS have to be working, I don't have a system so I can't test it. Anyway, does your RAM support XMP? I.e. does it have proper XMP profiles?

I successfully installed the Intel Wireless AC 7260! Install was very easy and straightforward. I just downloaded the driver directly from Intel before I switched the cards. Then, once the new card was in, I uninstalled the old drivers and installed the new ones! It is working perfectly!

According to CPU-Z. This should be the rams my my Y410p is using http://www.qdigrp.com/product/DOWN/desktop/RMT3170EB68F9W-1600.pdf.

I can't see the details of the XMP profiles in bios, so I don't know if the ram supports it. Do the XMP profiles come with the bios or does it come from the ram?

No word about XMP in that pdf. The profiles are stored on the RAM. Try XTU, might give you more information.

I used the tool to flash my Y410p BIOS and enter the BIOS Setup, when I "exit saving changes", my pc rebooted with only black screen, how can I recovey the orginal BIOS?

@wtlobster: I have the same ram in my 510p, nowhere near xmp.

There are options like ram multiplier in bios, but unfortunately it is not working, tried to lower first, then upper a notch, nothing happened.

Ram voltage can not be altered, just one option in menu, which is auto.

@svl7: There are no ram options in XTU. Don't know are there any on other, fully unlocked platforms.

You want to recover original bios setting, or want to revert unlocked bios?

What did you touched from unlocked options?

Similar things happened to me, but mine did power on, then 2 sec off. Instant hearth attack :)

Next power cycle was good, sometimes later, just entering bios, no changes, exit& save no boot.

So, just try to turn it on again, if it is not working, try to remove battery and power jack, wait a few minutes, and try again.

maybe I changed the igpu memory size, now i just want to boot normally and could enter the BIOS Setup first!

If the RAM doesn't have XMP profiles then the bios won't change anything regarding this.

Maybe? You should know what you did...

maybe there is no other way, than desolder battery from motherboard... :nightmare:

No, that won't make a difference, the variables are stored in the flash part, removing the coin cell battery won't do anything.

Yes it true, XMP is needed for the bios, but in XTU utility, there is no ram related settings at all. Maybe i will try XTU on my desktop.

There are no CMOS memory, which can be reseted? Didn't knew that. Thanks for the heads up! :)

svl7, is flashing a bios by default overwriting the variable area, or you have to force it by parameters?

If yes, you should try making an auto flash usb stick, remove hdd, and boot machine like that.

Or try the emergency flash method in the linked article?

what was your backup bios file name on the usb stick?

bios.bin will not work, you have to rename it like the article said:

2.3. Download andy's tool for identifying the correct filename of the BIOS for recovery (andy's tool)

2.4. Load the *.ROM file with andy's tool. A Message box will popup. It will show a filename you should use.

2.5. For me the file was called "QIWY.bi?". I formatted a usb flash drive (1GB) with a FAT filesystem (FAT32 should work fine as well) and put a few copies of the QIWY3207.ROM file on the drive. I used some variations of the filename because the character "?" is not allowed in filenames. So it put *.bi, *.bin, *.ROM and *.fd on the drive (don't know which one acutally worked).

Great minds think alike! I ordered one of these the other day and it should be here some time today.

How's the performance and range compared to the old card?

Well I have not gotten to do much testing, and none of it on AC, but the range seems better and performance is definitely better... with the old card my connection would drop every 15 minutes or so to where I basically kept my laptop on an ethernet cable. This card has worked flawlessly though!

I used a 256m usb flash disk, and tried the file name Yx01.bin, .rom, .wph, .fd, but none worked.

need I use crysis tool (wincris.exe) to prepare a bootable disk or remove other HD disks?

      Hi Guys,
       
      Im looking to possibly get a new laptop, but was wondering what laptops you guys would suggest for gaming and that doesn't have hardware whitelisting so I can update my wifi card and other hardware in the future. I heard that Asus doesn't lock down there hardware with a white list. My current laptop, Lenovo Y500 Ideapad, has a white list and im not able to swap out the wifi card because of it. Let me know what you guys think.

      The computer I used was '' Lenovo Y510P ''. There is a '' Nvidia GT755M [SLI] '' as a display card. I have tried both ways of downloading the video card driver from both GeForce Experience and Nvidia driver site. Both kinds of graphics cards are starting to update. Later, the 'graphic driver is installed' part of the screen goes and never comes again. I can not enter Windows when I turn off the computer. I have to take format from scratch.

      After formatting, Windows automatically loads a graphics card driver in 2017, trying to update the driver again, it stays black on the screen again. I have to format again.

      With DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) program, I deleted the old video card driver and updated it again. But I met the same problem.

      I communicated with Nvidia and stated that I had such a problem. They asked me not to install the 388.13 video card driver. That graphics card driver has been loaded without any problems. But I have the same problem with all the video card drivers out there.
       
      NOTE: This problem only happens on Windows 10. I can update the display board without any problems in operating systems like Windows 8,8.1.
       
      NOTE: I have been having this problem for about 2 months, before I could update my display card in Windows 10 without a problem.

      The driver I am currently using is: 388.13

      I dont know if this is the right forum to post this,  (but i need 5 posts for downloading a  vbios)
       
      so my questions are these, thank you in advance for reading
       
      I have bought a laptop with a half melted 880M GPU Im assuming the person did not keep an eye on temps,
      so i went and replaced the card, it runs fine, (alright) but still, I remember modding my VBIOS for my 680 GTX back in the day, and it was fine, exceptionally faster, 
      and im looking for that 60 fps LOCK, like i got on my 680 after modding the vbios, 
       
      I did increase the voltage on the card to 1.212 I believe, from 1.114 ,
       
      anyway I considering modding the cooling system as well for this laptop, because it definitely lacks cooling 
      My plan is to put another laptop fan (where the HDD1 bay is in the Alienware 17) bcause I removed that hdd it was constantly at 57c which is bad
      even think it suffered some damage as speeds on it for specific games and tasks are pretty long, and it stays at 100% some times, which is weird, but it still works, so im using it.lol
       
      , but in the meantime, I turned the laptop upside down, plugged in the HDMI cable, and now im blasting a ROOM fan at it, which is definitely helping with temps
      before I would try to throttle the gpu speed at 77C, or 73C depending on the game or even saying screw it, I dont want throttling, and putting the throttle point to 83C,
      I use SPEEDFAN , and it helps keep the laptop relativly cool, except when the gpu is under full load,  putting my hand on it is ridiculously hot, so, with the fan on it, its not going above 70,
      and taking a LONG time to get up there, 
      i am playing metro last light at around 60C at 60+ fps, where as before my temps were shooting upto 80 and it would hit the throttle point, so  seeing as how this is a 120 HZ laptop, I rather not push it, since the card is not capable (and if it is, the cooling sure isnt)
       
      the plan is to put the fan inside the HDD1 bay, and POSSIBLY  daisey chain it to either A) the cpu fan header, or  B ) the gpu fan hjeader, 
       
      QUESTION:
      not sure which "rails" the power for these comes from, would it be able to handle another fan???
      it seems like a legit idea, seeing as how the rear of the heatsink has NO heat dissipation at all. which is the part that melted offcausing the old  card to die in the first place.
      basically the thermal pads look like they gunked the card and it was unfixable, I have a post to it on the Alienware Forum, which i could link later,
       
      is it a good idea, and will the VBIOS WORK with my 880M (DELL) from a clevo, (now in an alienware) im assuming they are compatible, as long as they are dell.
      also would I be able to get a Y adapter for the inside of a laptop fan, that would be AMAZING, i know they sell them for Desktops.
      Thanks

      Recently obtained myself a bricked Y410P after undervolting my CPU, using svl7's bios mod on TechInferno. If you only take one thing away from this post, it should be the fact that 
      NEVER SHOULD YOU EVER UNDERVOLT A LAPTOP CPU FROM A MODDED BIOS. Hindsight is never 20/20.
      Anyways, back to topic! 
       
      I went and purchased my self one of these, in hopes of to re-program my sad bios. So far no good. 
       
      I am wondering if anyone out there have had any success with this approach. Please share your journey here!
