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

Recommended Posts

I am considering installing the unlocked Bios in order to disable hyperthreading. Does anyone know if the unlocked Bios would, indeed, allow me to do so?

Currently I've set a Linux kernel option to disable hyperthreading, but apparently using the Bios to do this gives slightly better performance.

So I successfully updated to the 3.05 modded BIOS on my Y410P but I screwed up afterwards. I noticed some odd stuttering in the games I was playing after teh mod so I fiddeled with someof the graphics settings.

Needless to say I did a right good job bricking the machine...

Now the system boots but does not show a display.

Things I've tried:

- FN+R with the 3.05 Crisis file but I get the 9 short beeps error for incorrect ROM.

- Attempted the steps listed here with no success.

Hi!

In this case try to execute next steps:

1. Completely disable laptop with long press and hold the Power button.

2. Press and hold F2 button, and start laptop (to go in bios setup menu).

3. Press F9 button, then Enter button. Then press F10 button, then Enter button.

Done.

I went through the steps you suggested.

I held the power button down till it power cycled once.

Then did the F2, F9 enter, F10 enter.

I still don't have a screen but I believe the bios is now reset since I get a short PC beep if I connect or disconnect power,

By any chance did anyone create a Yx01.bin crisis file for the 3.05 bios mod?

No, you need to completely disable laptop (Power of).

Then press and hold F2 button, then start laptop ( after laptop starts, F2 button still hold 3-5 sec). Then release F2 button, then press F9 button, then Enter button. Then press F10 button, then Enter button.

Done.

I have Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p

Bios 3.08

Intel Core I7-4700MQ

HDD SR1000LM14-8SSHD-8GB

HDD SAMSUNG SSD 860 PRO 256GB

Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230

NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M

 

When I connects to router I have 60-65Mb. The connect is stable.
But when I do not uses laptop (for example 2 hours) WiFi speed decreases Max 30-35Mb and not increases when I start uses laptop.
I have to make manualy reconnect with router, and I have again 60-65Mb.
Where is the problem...?

I have driver Intel: 15.18.0.1, Windows 10 x64

The drivers from M$ working the same bad.

 

How I can resolve problem?
Only update BIOS on 3.5 MOD can resolve it?

My laptop is compatible with this BIOS?

Followed your instructions but nothing is happening. Also it seems the caps lock light is on and won't turn off by pressing the caps lock key. Is that trying to tell me something?

      Hi all,
       
      It has been a while since I did anything to my laptop (Clevo P670RG-G) and since I recently got a VR Headset I wish I could overclock my GPU a little. So far the NVidia software (on windows) doesn't allow me to overclock it (the linux sort of allows, which some custom Xorg options) so I decided to give a try modding the vbios.
       
      I read all sorts of issues / guides about it, and it seens that the hardware topology (where the vbios is stored and how things are connected) changes from machine to machine.
       
      What I know about my laptop is that it has two VBios, one for Hybrid Mode and one for Discrete Mode. I'm currently running the discrete mode.
       
      I dumped my VBios using GPU-z and opened up in Maxwell II Bios Tweaker. Everything seens fine so far.
       
      So I have few questions about it:
       
      - There is a way to just unlock the VBios to show the overclocking options in NVidia software? (That way I dont need to reflash to change clocks)
      - I can just flash this GPU-z dump to my VBios?
      - If I brick my GPU, that GPU-z dumped image is the raw SPI image, so if I managed to physically access the VBios, I can just reflash over it?
      - I saw some people saying that I might need as well to flash the main laptop bios as well, is that really needed?
       
      Thanks!

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo ThinkPad T440p / T440s / T540p.
      If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden additional menus and settings in bios setup menu, then you can post your request in this thread.
      Important!
      For creating bios backup and to flash 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.

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo ThinkPad T450s.
      If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden additional menus and settings in bios setup menu, or already upgraded Display and after that can't adjust screen brightness, then you can post your request in this thread.
