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

Recommended Posts

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?

Same here (v2.07) but on y410p. Svl7, I'll drop $30 to your laptop fund if you can help us out :)

Hi!

Today i saw NGFF SSDs in stock on Amazon.

Is hidden options contain anything about disabling/enabling Intel Smart Response?

Is it possible to move Win8 on ngff ssd and boot from it?

I think you can, but you need to adjust the setting in bios and the way you format that drive. I tried to do a fresh os installation. In some way, I can see it in drive options before the os installed but not be able to see that partition after a Win8 is done except using the recovery cds. I have not tried to explore. Probably, driver?

Slightly off topic - just looking to do this bios mod on my new y510 - dont want to brick!

Anyway - ordered a new ssd for it - can anybody give me some advice as to what settings in the bios should be set to for a new install - bit clueless - its all new to me

Thanks for any guidance

Hi there. I actually got stuck in the first step which is this "Create a backup of your own BIOS by using this tool.

The archive contains the files of the program and a .bat file that will create a backup of your BIOS. You need to call the .bat file from an admin command prompt."

I have no idea how I can run the .bat file.

please help me~

--------------------------------------------------------------------

I think I found how to do it. Please let me know if this is right or not.

I put all Fptw64 folders' files into c\windows\system32 and run cmd by admin and typed "start backup.bat" and it seems like backing up my bios.

and it says writing flash contents to file "bios.bin"...

does this mean my bios backup has been saved in bios.bin file?

I dragged this file to bio-fixer program and nothing happened!!!!!!!!!!

its just saying "Input file: bios.bin" thats it!!!! what should I do??????

---------------------------------------------------------------------

wow solved it again.

first, I had to pull out bios.bin file to desktop from system32 file.

it worked!!!!!!

With the modded bios you would be able to use your wifi card.

Mine is y510p and version is v1.09.

After I unlocked my bios I installed BCM943228HMB but seems like this is worse than n2230. I guess intel ac7260 is the best way.

I have no idea. I just used a program that contains every wireless card drivers in. I am outside so I cant even check the name. But why? Do you think I have to change or upgrade the driver?

Yes, that is the 7260 card, but I don't know why it says ac1200. I originally had weird issues with my driver from Proset, and then I went on Intel's site Intel® Driver Update Utility , and find a new driver. It fixed up some of the 2230's issues but I'm still planning on replacing the card.

I noticed that most of the people in this thread are trying to install the Intel AC card. I am attempting to just get a dual band wireless N card in. Will this still be compatible?

If you are buying a new card you might as well get the 7260 it supports dual band n as well so why not get the newest :) but otherwise as long as i only dual band with two antennas then you are good to go.

The Intel 6235 works well and supports multiple bands and Bluetooth. Cheers,

I haven't tried yet. I'm wary of using an older BIOS because I don't know what Lenovo has refreshed over the summer and mine is brand new.

      Hi guys, I am the proud owner of a Clevo p775dm3-g notebook purchased from azom.systems (authorized Clevo reseller in India, Model rebranded as Azom Legion-17.3 inches). Here are my specs:

      Core i7 7700 (non-K version): undervolted by 110 mv and turbo boost disabled in BIOS- machine uses prema mod BIOS.
      GTX 1080: undervolted by 100 mv on all frequency steps using MSI afterburner voltage/frequency curve editor. clocks are untouched.
      16 GB DDR4: Cant remember clocks.
      1440p 120 Hz screen: No tinkering done to refresh rate.

      CPU has been delidded and repaste has been done on both CPU/GPU dies with gallium based TIM-Coolaboratory liquid ultra if I recall correctly.

      My issue is GPU hitting max temp limit of 90 degrees while playing DOOM and framerate drops from 110 avg to mid 60s-70s with horrible stuttering- this is thermal throttling for sure.

      System was running beautifully after repaste at 86 degrees max/ 77 degrees average at 100 percent fan speed. A month later I decided to see how much further I could push the system and ended up undervolting the CPU/GPU and RAM even further. The RAM undervolting part didnt work as well as I'd hoped, and I ended up resetting the BIOS to undo everything and reapply the previous setting (-110 for CPU with turbo boost disabled.) 

      I noticed that immediately after BIOS reset, both my CPU and GPU temps were 5-10 degrees higher even with the undervolt/underclock applied. Also, I think the fans were a bit louder before I reset the BIOS which leads me to believe that for some reason the fans are now capped at 80% max fan speed. There doesnt seem to be a fan speed selector in the BIOS or anywhere else so I cant say for sure whether this is a fan related issue or something else.Before the reset I could override the BIOS setting and set the fans to 100% by pressing fn+1, could I have done something to that setting after resetting the BIOS ? I dont think I have damaged the CPU or GPU as temps are holding fairly steady at 90-91 degrees and laptop doesn't shut down while gaming.

      If I have overlooked something or if anyone reading this has any solution help would be greatly appreciated.
      All settings/drivers/windows version/app version are exactly the same before and after BIOS reset.
