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

Recommended Posts

Arctic Silver 5 is one of the better compounds on market. its electrically non conductive, but its not an insulator.

Ceramique 2 i recommended is slightly less effective but also electrically non conductive and an insulator.

Other safe bets(besides Arctic Silver - 5)

Arctic - MX 2

Arctic - MX 4

Prolimatech PK 1

Phobya HeGrease Extreme

@Also I can't decide between those two cooling pads, which one do to recommend?

Amazon.com: Targus Lap Chill Mat for Laptop, Black/Gray (AWE55US): Electronics

Amazon.com: Cooler Master NotePal X-Slim Ultra-Slim Laptop Cooling Pad with 160mm Fan (R9-NBC-XSLI-GP): Computers & Accessories

Average cooling may be as good as there was none. Some cheaper models offer only placebo effect.

Read carefully more articles about pads. Some articles are sponsored and may deceive. Take some time to read before deciding. Buying twice is a worst scenario.

I belive in heavy metal pads I recommended were theoretically for 17 inch laptops.

NC-2000 i mentioned is very heavy and smartly enginereed.

U3+ has optimal(manual)l fan placement.

U2+(model for 15 inch laptops)is also relatively good - manual fan placement

I use Gelid Solutions GC Extreme Thermal Compound, based on reviews from Newegg

In my case, set my i7 near 3-4 degrees better than Arctic Silver 5. For me - best in the compound ring for now.

You can't flash from 3.05, you need to downgrade to 2.07 first, then you can go ahead and flash from 3.05. Read and follow the instructions carefully. Failure to do so may result in severe issues.

Tried this today and it worked first time without a problem, just need to test it with an AC wifi card. So many BIOS options unlocked, I don't think I'll be touching any of them!

I decided to attempt this fix because my wireless card wasn't picking up my wireless router. So I slapped a new wireless card in there and it gave me the "Unsupported wireless card error" on boot. Now I'm on step 3 of the entire process but the InsydeFlash tool is telling me "BIOS version compare error!". Please help me figure this out as since I've upgrade to 3.05 my slave video card isn't working anymore.

Finally someone else!!!! This is the same error I ran into!

To solve it: Boot off your USB stick, and flash the 3.05 EC portion of the later steps. Then boot back in to windows and flash 2.07 BIOS. Then continue on with the 3.05 BIOS/EC flash steps.

I actually fixed this problem by going into the BIOS under Configuration and enabling BIOS Back Flash.

However, now I'm running into a problem where my computer periodically reboots. Does anyone know how I can fix this issue?

For my y510p I use the Coolermaster Notepal that has the grid on it so you can move the fans around based on what laptop you have. I actually have had 2 over the years, and I actually use 5 fans on mine currently. Sorta wish the ports for usb/hdmi weren't so closely spaced on the left side though.

Thank you svl7, you are the best! (sorry about the last silly question)

Appears that the the ACPI/DMAR table is finally fixed in this 3.05 BIOS version! (here, the Linux kernel is not complaining about a buggy ACPI BIOS implementation anymore, at least)

When I get a new processor I will run some tests with the PCI passthrough feature. If there is a hardware video output switch on the NVIDIA graphics cards for external monitors (anyone? I do not have an extra monitor to test.. =/), it might be possible even to pass the control of the card to the VM, also need some tests (unfortunately, VGA passthrough has so many requirements...). Not only, it appears that an updated patch of the vfio-vga (kvm) is needed to work with non-GTX NVIDIA cards (if you guys have the resources and want to try).

Also, do you guys think that it is possible to mix and match different gt7XXm cards now?

I kind of know that it was not possible with the earlier BIOS 1.XX and 2.XX (lack of BIOS support? Blacklist?).

I've checked my mobo here (software/dmidecode, not electronic/hardware) and my laptop (which has a built in gt750m) has the same mobo model as the gt755m ones, but still not sure if BIOS or hardware will allow.

I would be interested how I can

voltage change from onboard video card

reduced from 1,1v to 1,05v

If it is possible by modifying the parameters in BIOS

I know that the motherboard onboard video BIOS gt755m is included in version 3.05.

There is something that you can edit?

The performance certainly 1.05v remain unchanged but the temperature will be lower by at least 5-8 degrees

      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 !!!

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo ThinkPad T440p / T440s / T540p.
      If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden additional menus and settings in bios setup menu, then you can post your request in this thread.
      Important!
      For creating bios backup and to flash bios mod, you must use any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip!
       
      Just dump your Bios using any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip, then post it in this thread or upload it to any fileserver and send me the link.
