So what kind of speeds are people able to get after replacing the wireless card? Currently my wireless speed is only a fraction of my internet speed. If this can help I'd like to try it.

In your NV flash tutorial, you mentioned that for SLI users we need to flash vbios to each card separately, but in this thread you only tells us to flash the ultrabay.

I tried to flash the vbios to my on board graphics card, but it doesn't do anything.

The other vbios is part of the bios, so that part is done by flashing the bios.

I just ran through some BF3 last night and noticed that though the base frame rate seemed higher than previously, I think I am noticing thermal-based throttling as well. This could just be the map I was playing on (I havent gone through all of the maps yet) but I did notice running through the same area would be smooth one time and noticeably more skippy the next time.

Is anyone else experiencing this after the VBIOS mod (I've done it to both cards). I guess I am able to de-tune some of the performance to avoid throttling, but is there a tool you guys recommend? Thanks!

Hi, I'm planning to install vbios mod for v1.07 bios because I would like to turn off HT and installing intel 7260.

Did anyone try turning off HT and playing games without it? I think that could help me, because sometimes my CPU reaches 80-90C.

Thanks (sorry for my bad english)

Do you have a modded BIOS for 2.02? I have the y510p with the nvidia GT755M

So far we haven't seen anything for 2.xx but i do not think any one else have the 2.02 bios, so you need to backup and upload that to svl7 as well.

I send mine in a private message to svl7, as far as i know you can't "protect it" for him to be able to make the mod.

So I upgraded to windows 8.1 today, bad idea. SLI doesn't work anymore with new drivers. It also seems like I am not the only one having this problem with Lenovo Y510p/Y500 machines. See here: https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/608174/sli/windows-8-1-no-sli/ Anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this problem from 8 to 8.1? They are basically the same os with some extra's thrown in, right? The cards are doing really weird stuff in device manager every boot / driver re-install as well. From code 43 on the second graphics card to both not showing up at all. Have tried re installing the driver many times to no success. (If people really want to discuss this heavily I will start a new thread to avoid clogging this one.)

Hi!

I succesfully installed the mod (Thanks svl7), and made a backup or my ultrabay GPU[1],

but nvflash didn't let me backup my GPU[0] because it always gives error.

So when I'm trying to play a game with SLI enabled, the game crashes.

GPU[0] BIOS version: 80.07.9D.00.07 [MODIFIED] | Driver Version: GeForce 331.40 - [r331_00-96]

GPU[1] BIOS version: 80.07.9D.00.11 [MODIFIED] | Driver Version: GeForce 331.40 - [r331_00]

Should I flash the backuped file of my GPU[1] or what's the solution for my problem?

Thanks

I realized there is another problem when I turned on my laptop this morning. The system uptime is over 4 days. So I restarted my laptop and the uptime is reset to 0. The I shut down my laptop and left and when I turned it back on tonight the uptime is over 8hrs. I checked AIDA64 and it gives the same figure. So somehow the "shut down" does not really shut down the system, I wonder if it is caused by the expressCache.

What? You do not need to unlock the BIOS to be able to boot from CD or USB flash drive. If you want to install GNU/Linux disable SecureBoot and switch to legacy boot mode.
ican download the files. Can anybody help me please?
You need to have 5 approved posts or purchase Elite membership to download files.

Thank you very much! This is exactly what I am looking for so long. I just bought a Y510p and updated the memory, ssd, and wireless card. Without this post, I would have to return them.

However, where can I check the latest update bios firmware and the version I use? I checked with lenovo website, and they don't offer bios download and update.

On AID64 EE it says 2.07, which I am confused about.

I am new to the forum. I am trying to replace the hdd of my new y510p with a samsung 500g ssd. But, when i change the setting in bios, it seems not possible to change it back. I can not use uefi to boot the laptop (shows"checking media") and the hard drive can not set as achi either; the only way to do the system installaion is set hd as compatible and bios as legacy. Does anyone know how to slove this?

Guys, I need help, like bad. I changed a setting and my y410p will just power on to a black screen now. I tried to recover again by using the mash F2 + 8 right + 4 down + 4 enter trick and that does not work this time.

I tried to put my stock BIOS on a USB stick and hold down Fn + B while powering up and that doesn't do anything either.

Anyone know how to recover from a bad settings? I desoldered what looked like the CMOS battery (it's right underneath the palm rest and soldered onto the motherboard and is flat, round and labeled with + and - on two prongs) and I'm just letting it sit there for a while, I hope that clears the settings.

This is currently only for v1.07 / v1.09 / v1.10 users. If you have a different BIOS I will need a copy of it in order to make it work for your system.

I am trying to whitelist my new intel 7260 and, think I have a newer version of y510p bios which is 2.07. I was not sure yesterday, but after double checking in my bios setting today, it is a v2.07. Lenovo does update their bios really quick. Does anyone know this version?

I am still waiting for the recovery cds to do a whole new installation. After that I will use svI7's tool to make a backup. Hope he can help me to do the mod. Thanks to him here.

      Hello everyone. 
       
      I've been reading the forums for quite a while now, and I can't even describe how helpful everyone at techinferno is. 
       
      It's time for my first post and my question is towards the GPU vBios and Alienware/Clevo gurus here at techinferno.
       
      I've bought a barebone Origin EON 15-X (Clevo p750dm) it's the Skylake version. I also have an MSI GTX970m 6GB which doesn't seem to be working when installed in the 15-X (black screen not even backlight, only the keyboard backlight is working, no fans are spinning and there are no beeps). I think it might be due to the MSI vBios. I want to try to flash the card with a Clevo vBios (thanks to Prema) and see if the card would then work.
       
      I was hoping I can use my trusty M18x r2 for that task. 
       
      In the primary GPU slot I've got my 7970m and in the slave slot I've put the 970m. When I power the laptop and go to the bios, it only shows "ATI GFX" for "Discrete Graphics 1 and for "Discrete Graphics 2" shows "Not Detected". I've tried booting to Windows and checked the device manager, same thing only the 7970m is listed.
       
      I'm not sure if what I'm trying to do is even possible.
       
      Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

      Does anyone know if I can smack 2x16gb(32gb) ddr3l sodimm into the y510p without issue?
      Yes the documentation states it's upgradable to 16gb maximum, but surely that's bs, I mean the 4700Mq is capable of 32gb RAM so what's the problem?
      I read some speculation online on various forums, but can anyone confirm it is possible? I'm just scared to buy the RAM if it's not going to work.
      Thanks
      InB4 "you don't need that much RAM"
      I do.

      What is up. Emailed Sager about latest bios and they sent me one. Suppose to provide support for Kabby lake 7XXX series processors as well as optimization for crappy WIFI cards that aka (cough cough KILLER) le'ts not point fingers here XD. File is below. Gotta flash through USB... there are plenty tutorials out there how to do but here are instruction from the email I got.
       
      https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_Ud_l2en4O0MGw0WWJCaXFUS0E
       
      Rename the attached file to 9870BV08LS2.7z(Done it for you already)
       
      Unzip the 9870BV08LS2.7z to a USB flash drive.
       
      Restart Windows.
       
      When the screen turns black, keep tapping F7.
       
      Select enter setup on the boot menu.
       
      Pull down the exit menu in the CMOS setup.
       
      Launch EFI shell from filesystem device.
       
      The Startup.nsh will flash the BIOS.
      Note. Sager Computer does not take the responsibility if the computer does not work after you updated the system BIOS & firmware by
       
      yourself. ( Neither do I)

      Enjoy
