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.

      Hi everyone, I have a problem. I need to unlock the bios settings because I only have basic functions and I need to increase the memory of VRam. Sorry if I posted a post not in this topic.

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo ThinkPad X240.
      If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden advanced menus and settings in bios setup menu, or upgrade to new display (with brightness control), then you can post your request in this thread.
      Important!
      For creating your personal bios dump and to flash your 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.

      Hi,
      I am looking to remove the bios wifi whitelist restriction for a Lenovo G700 version 7ACN89WW . This is version 3.07
      I have used a programmer to read direclly from bios chip but it has failed. Is there any other method available to remove bios restriction from this laptop?

      Hello to all big format laptop users!
      I`ll try to make it as short as possible. I have the Alienware M18X R1 for about 7years, i think. It was a problematic machine all the time. But during warranty period local support fixed everything super fast and free of charge :). I even upgraded from gtx 580m sli to gtc 780m sli. And made primary hdd samsung evo ssd. Unlocked Bios. Power brick i changed 3 times by now. Battery once. And 6moths ago one of the long time ago installed 780m died ( started with artifacts on screen then refused to boot windows). Replaced that and was as happy as ever. The machine kept working stable and i pushed all i could get from it in reasonably modern titles. Even tried RDR2 on default settings, gave me 17fps :). Not sure if SLI is supported for that game. The point is it was running fine for last 6 months.
      What happened:  Gaming as usual, room temp 23C. After around 2hr suddenly black screen. The laptop switched off by itself.
      What i check: First checked power brick. Green light off. Unplug from wall and laptop. After plugging in wall green light back on. Connect laptop light off.
      Next: Tried take out battery, unplug. And hold the PWR button for 1 min. Try to start on battery - nothing. Plug in - green light off again.
      Later: after some googling found that need to try to remove video cards. Done that. OK Nice! Plug in power and it starts as nothing happened on the integrated intel video.
      Found out that i one of the video cards is plugged in that triggers the power brick to trip. (the original upgrade 780m from years ago). 
      Start with GPU: Insert the other one in its slot. Systems start. But immediately i notice there`s no video drivers. OK i think reinstalling and job done. Drivers reinstalled, asked for restart. After restart nothing. Still no driver.
      Windows device manager: This is bogging me. it shows that i have 670M instead of 780m. Windows gives Code 43 Error.
      BIOS: I go into bios just to find that that it has reverted back to A05 (hows that possible?). And its so limited that i cant even choose witch video card to use. But it detects nVidia GFX.
      How to get at least my single 780M to be working?! Update bios again to unlocked? Did this event fry Vbios on my other card maybe?
      System: m18x R1
      SLI gtx 780m
      Unlocked bios (before event)
      nvidia driver 443.x(or there about)
      Win: 7, 64bit
