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.....
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.
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?
- 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.
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:
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!
