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 guys ...

      i wanna make sure that everything is going to work fine with my laptop so i got some questions

      First of all my laptop is Lenovo Z51-70
      CPU: I5-5200U 2.2ghz
      iGPU Intel HD 5500
      dGPU:AMD R9 M375
      Ram: 8GB (will raise it to 16GB)
      HDD: 1TB stock one
      SSD: 120GB (for my games and windows only)

      now i investigated  a little about eGPUs and found that i need a M.2 or thunderbolt, i've found that my wifi card use a M.2 a/e key aka ngff, so i will be using the GDC Beast NGFF version

      to the bad part / question part

      What do i need to know other than the stuff above?
      what is the white-listing thing? i found on support forums that my laptop support some wifi cards only and it's bios cann't be modified according to bios modifying forums (not here)
      in same time saw some posts on reddit that says if ur bios have UMA graphic option then you will need to disable PAX / WIRELESS and enable UMA and it will work fine, the question is that true?

      i wasn't able to find anyone who did it on Z51-70 i found only 1 post on reddit for Z41-70 (which after research found that both are using same M.2 a/e key slot and also same bios... but the one who posted only replied that it's recognized with some errors and never replied back with any updates so still not sure about it.....

      Hi everyone,
      Does anyone know how to make a modded bios with maxwell bio tweaker?
      My problem is, that I want the basic clocks for my system, but just want to be able to verclock past the 135MHz limit.
      So I don't want a permanent OC.
       
      My specs:
      Medion Erazer x7841
      GTX 970m 3GB
       
      Thank's in advance!

      It's locked & hidden by default, but I've got an i7 8700k & I'd like to utilise the intel 'quick sync'/hardware acceleration in Adobe encoding in order to speed up rendering. You don't need to have a display connected to it for it to work (i believe), but it's really fustrating how it is locked out, as it means I'm missing out on quite a useful time saving feature.
       
      Is there any way to activate or mod this?
       
      Thanks!

      Flashing Overview:
       
      - Go to the device manager -> 'Display Adapters' -> chooser your GPU, right click on it and choose disable
       
      - Flash the VBIOS with mnvflash, a modified version of nvflash (see attachments). Below are detailed instructions for nvflash in case you aren't familiar with it.
      - After the flashing is done: Enable the GPU once again in the device manager.
      - Reboot
       
      Detailed Instructions:
       
      As soon as you see the command line you're ready to go, write
      dir and hit enter to display all the files on the USB drive.
       
      Display all Nvidia adapters in the system:
      nvflash -a  
      or alternatively the longer version of the command:
      nvflash --list This command will return you a list with all Nvidia adapters present in your system.
       
      Here's an example output of this command run on my M15x with a 680m in it:
      NVIDIA Firmware Update Utility (Version 5.117) NVIDIA display adapters present in system: <0> N13E-GTX (10DE,11A0,1028,02A2) H:--:NRM B:02,PCI,D:00,F:00 The number in the <> brackets is the index of the corresponding device. SLI users will have more than one entry and flash each card separately.
       
      Backup your current VBIOS:
      Never forget to keep a backup of your original VBIOS before you flash anything non-stock. Use this command to save a copy of the firmware to your USB drive:
      nvflash -b filename.rom or with
      nvflash --save filename.rom  
      Flash the VBIOS to your card(s):
      For a single card it's really straight forward, you don't need to worry about the adapter indices. Just use this command:
      nvflash -6 vbiosname.rom -6 will allow you to override mismatches of the PCI subsystem ID. In case of a mismatch you'll need to confirm the flash with 'y'. NOTE: Users with a non-US keyboard might need to press 'z' or similar, because the 'y' isn't at the same location for all keyboard layouts.
       
      SLI users will need to flash each card separately. The concept stays the same, but you will need to use the corresponding adapter index to flash a card. How to figure out the adapter nr. is described above.
      Flashing goes like this:
      nvflash -i[index] -6 vbios.rom [index] represents a number, namely the index you found with the 'nvflash -a' command. So a command example to flash a card which has index 0 is: 'nvflash -i0 -6 vbios.rom'

      In case you want to buy me a beer
       
      Thanks and cheers!
