A little more than a week ago, Microsoft released emergency Windows updates to deactivate previous buggy security updates from Intel. This happened after the chip maker acknowledged that its firmware updates meant to address the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities could cause system instability, including random reboots.

 

Intel made very little progress on the fixes, Haswell has no stable MCU fixes

Microsoft releases new emergency Windows update to deactivate Intel’s buggy security patches on your PC.

I modded my BIOS years ago and my laptop has been running great ever since.  So thank you all for the help!

However, I have a new question.  I was wondering if I am able to reset my laptop to factory settings and keep the modded BIOS.  I modded my BIOS just so I can use a better wifi card.  I do not have the stock wifi card so if the old BIOS gets reinstalled then I will be stuck.  So, how can I reset my laptop while not changing my modded BIOS and wifi card?

To reset your laptop to factory setting, just go in bios setup menu and on the last page "Save and Exit" set "Default Settings", then push F10 button to save, then push "Enter" button.

Hi guys,

 

I was wondering if anyone can give me assistance with installing this new bios. I am beyond frustrated right now as I've been trying to update this for the past 2hrs. I've followed the instructions from the first post and also searched this topic for other problems/ issues people have had that I am currently having. What are they? Well, everything! Not one thing goes as the instructions say... I'm using a y410p on 3.05 bios..... 

 

First, when trying to create a bootable dos usb - it gives media write protect. I have searched and performed 5-6 different methods to try and correct this, but nope still has problems. I resorted to going back to a very old lenovo thinkpad running vista to try... It did not give me the error but I really have no idea if it "worked".   

 

Secondly, I cannot create a bios backup because once I double click on the .bat nothing happens! Run it as admin in cmd prompt? Ok, did it.... It did nothing, no backup created. I then thought, maybe I can use my y510p bios that I already upgraded the bios over a year ago with....Nope, dragging and dropping the bios.bin on the y410p using the biosfixer does nothing. All it does is open the program and warns about reading instructions.... So I thought since I already have the 3.05modded bios from my y510p lets try that! 

 

Third, I go to downgrade the bios. I open the .exe it gives me an ac detect error....I search and find a solution that it is a bios setting. I reboot and enable backsupport in bios. Save and restart. I try to run the downgrader again, same AC detect error..... 

 

I have a new 7260 card that I would very much like to use (as I have with my y510p, what a difference!) but I can't get this bios updated/modded. 

 

If anyone can please shed some light on this and give me a hand I would very, very much appreciate it!! 

 

Thank you!

Hello all i have been having kernal display driver has stopped responding but has recovered errors CONSTANTLY, fkn impossible to game ( excuse my french ). I have done everyhing besides this and the only solution is to downclock my CPU+GPU even though my temperatures dont go above 70* i get these errors. I have just finished backflashing my bios to 3.05 from 3.08 however for the step:

 

(2) - Download Lenovo_Y510p-Y410p_[v3.05]_modified.zip and  put the files of folder [1] to the root of your prepared USB DOS stick.
Let the BiosFixer prepare your BIOS for flashing by drag and dropping your backup file on it. Put the created "v305mod.bin" file to the root of your USB DOS drive as well.

 

It is saying i do not have the credentials to download it. May someone help me out here please? im really anxious to get this bios mod mixed into my rig and mess with the voltages and crap to HOPEFULLY be my remedy, my cure to my last 3yr nvidia crashes every 2-5min PLEASE I AM BEGGING!!!!

Hi!

For modify bios v3.05, you should use BiosFixer for v3.05. You can search it in "Lenovo_Y510p-Y410p_[v3.05]_modified" folder from the first page of this thread.

Is the AC 7260 the best adapter possible on y510p?

 

I'm currently using the Intel Wireless-N 7260.

Hello dear

 

Unfortunately for me, my ideapad Y510P is already upgraded to BIOS version 3.08. What can I do to remove the whitelist? I really need to replace my wifi module because it drops most of times. So much times that I'm forced to use ethernet cable. Updating the wifi drivers doesn't fix the provlem. Using a wifi dongle suck because most of times they are thick and take place over the near usb port.

It's raging having a such good laptop and not be able to use the wireless connection around the house :(

 

Please I need HELP

 

Thanks in Advance

 

My system:

 

Lenovo ideapad Y510P

16GB RAM

Windows 10 Version 1709

I see that you've been promoted, so you should now be able to download files.

      Hi,
       
      I own gx740 with i5-430m, 4GB RAM, and I planned to do some upgrades.
       
      Currently I did:
      - upgrade SSD, move HDD to dvd drive space
      - have some unlocked bios (but didn't found usage for it currently)
      - have modified vbios but not sure if the values I've used are good
       
      I was thinking about:
      - upgrading CPU to i7-640M
      - upgrading RAM (not sure which will fit)
       
       
      I would like to also:
      - fix broken/cracked frame around screen, but it wont be easy and cheap I guess?
      - replace screen to something brighter (?) but this will probably not be worth the cost
       
      1) What do you guys think about it? Is it even worth?
      2) I've also see something like 'grain effect' moving grey stripes on same page elements (long time I remember it could be related to faulty bios/vbios)?

      Hi all,
       
      I'm debating whether or not to replace the thermal paste in my Lenovo y510p. I've started overclocking a bit, and I have an external fan, but I would like to not have to run the fan as fast because it is a little loud. I have been reading a bit about different thermal pastes, and I'm wondering if there is even a big difference between stock thermal paste, and something like the liquid metal from thermal grizzly. It sounds like it'd work better, but I don't want to fall for a good marketing scheme. If anyone has experience with this and has or hasn't seen big differences, your input would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      Hi,
       
      I recently bought the new Toshiba RC100 m.2 2242 NVMe SSD for my Lenovo Y510p which has an m.2 port in it.
      After installation the SSD wasn't showing up in my BIOS and also not on my OS Win 10 disk management. So I did a bit of research and installed mod BIOS for my Y510p by following the steps in the link: ( https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/3546-lenovo-y410p-y510p-unlocked-bios-wlan-whitelist-mod-vbios-mod/ )
      There are a lot more options in the BIOS menu now.
      Even after doing the mod it's not showing up. The SSD works on my friend's "new 2017 dell gaming laptop" which has m.2 ssd support in it. I don't know what exactly to configure my BIOS to make it work. I've just done some hit-and-trial configs which have eventually failed.
      If someone can help solve it Pleasee!!
       
       
      P.S. : I can share all the available options available in the BIOS if required.
