Okay my laptop works again after it was bricked, they unsoldered they BIOS chip, then flashed it and soldered again to the board. It works but my little "problem" is that there is a black screen at the startup for about 15-20 seconds which is very annoying. Has anyone an idea how to fix that? :) Thanks in advance...

I have the same problem. You fix the issue?

Awesome mod! I've been lurking around for a while now and finally gave this a go. I have the Y510P model with i7, 1TB HDD, 24GB M.2 (upg. to 256GB), GT750M and 1080p matte LCD. Everything went smooth. Running Win7 x64, Intel XTU undervolt+overclock, GT750M undervolt+overclock w/ nvidiaInspector, buttery smooth and no crashes on long sessions of gaming. I've read lots and lots of forums regarding high temps but mine never seemed to get so high as to throttle (even gaming on a surface that doesn't let much air flow in), but I do use IdeaFan now just to make the hardware last longer.

I was wondering tho, if anyone has a modded ultrabay GPU for sale that works with internal GT750M, please PM me! I'm looking to upgrade this beast.

Thanks again svl7!

Hey, I'm still looking for stable values for my CPU and GPU's (2x GT755M)... You said you would undervolt+overclock both GPU and CPU... Why do you do that? would it work for me as well? Thanks in advance :)

I didn't fix it yet. It's since I gave it to a computer shop and they fixed it... I would be very glad if someone had a solution and it's a software issue... but I think it could also be hardware related :(

I hope someone has an idea :D

Thanks.

This is the time I want to recommend something to every Y510p/Y500 owner (I saw some people on the previous pages of this thread who bricked their BIOSes even after there were so many posts of people who bricked their BIOSes already):

 

DO NEVER TRY TO UNDERVOLT OR CHANGE ANY OTHER SETTINGS IN THE MODDED BIOS IF YOU DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOUR'RE DOING!

IT WON'T WORK! AND WILL CAUSE YOU SO MUCH TROUBLE...JUST DON'T DO IT!

At the beginning of this thread there is a warning:

 

On 12.9.2013 at 3:38 AM, svl7 said:

Keep in mind that not necessarily all of the BIOS options available with this mod will be fully functional, so use the new available settings with care.

If you're unsure about something don't change it and ask here, someone might be able to help.

 

In my opinion there should be said that it's extremely dangerous to change any settings you are unsure about!

 

I want to save you from that **** :D

 

Believe me :)

I moddet(again after repair) the BIOS  and now asks me the password :)). I tried: admin,000,1234,Lenovo. I never had the bios password.

Update : I made update to 3.08 and the password is still there. The password is stored in EEPROM? 

Update 2: I solved the password was number 1. I do not know where that came.

Hi! thanks for the good instruction. I have stock Bios 3.07 on my Y510P, is there also a Bios mod? I have an intel AC 7260 Wifi Card which doesn't work at the moment.

So I've done all the steps and everything is working better, but still not quite right. I saw in an earlier post that the settings for the Ultrabay GPU should be Base Clock: -100Mhz Memory Clock: -300Mhz and Voltage Offset: -112.5Mhz. The problem I'm having is that on the Voltage Offset I can only go -50Mhz. Nvidia Inspector won't let me go any lower than that. However, on the primary GPU it will let me go that low. So it seems the default setting for the two GPU's is different. I have attached a screenshot of the default settings on the Ultrabay GPU in Inspector.

Can someone help me? I'm actually stuck at the part where you have to boot the modded 3.05 bios from the USB, right after the step where you needed to downgrade to 2.07. 

I've been trying to boot the bios from the USB but the USB doesnt show up in BIOS. Thanks in advance.

 

Edit: I'm on Windows 10 if that helps. . .

Everytime I try to make a backup using the bat file for 3.05, the window pops up, Disappears and no file is made. It makes a error file when I dont do it as admin, but when I do it as admin nothing shows up.

There was an earlier post addressing this. He said to make a folder in your C drive named "fptw64".

Next, you open a command prompt in administrator mode and type: cd\fptw64

Then, type: backup

After doing all of those, you can find the "bios" file in the fptw64 folder!

reboot into your bios settings, and make sure the "bios flashback" setting is enabled.

you probably have bios version 3.08 or something like i did and have to revert to the older 3.05, which requires you to have the "bios flashback" setting enabled

maybe i know what the problem is. do you have your Bios set to Legacy Support or UEFI only? some devices might not show up in the boot menu when it's set to UEFI only
maybe try setting it to "legacy support" and the setting beneath it that pops up to "UEFI first" you can then open the Boot Menu (f11 or f12 during startup) and then you should be able to see the USB drive.
i'm not sure if this tool requires legacy mode because i have to wait a week to get permission to download files, but it may help.

Sadly, I've tried that. I'm not sure whether it's a problem with SanDisk USB's so I'll get to testing other USB's soon.

Hey, since you're having trouble downloading the files, I found a link that might help you with that :D

Also, please update me if you're able to make the mod work. Thanks!

Hey everyone, this is really cool, but I have a quick question

Will all the steps be the same if I am running windows 10?

Thinking about doing the wireless card swap.

      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
