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,

I have question on theme 7260HMW 867M BT4.0 802.11ac Mini PCI-E Wifi Card card.
Now I have Centrino N-2230 and few problems. When I not uses computer, speed card downgrade to 30-35Mb and not returned to 60-65Mb. I have Internet 60Mb.
Speed connect form computer to router is 300Mb - 2.4GHz

 

Card AC 7260 is stable?
Can someone check own speed connect to Internet for example before and after when You uses the computer. Pause use for example 2 hours.

Thanks,

Alpha Centauri is far from Poland :-)
But I have question on theme Update...
1.)  I did points instruction 0 - 2.
2.)  Can I have to before flash I must downgrade bios in laptop to 2.7...? I reads this point correctly?
3.) Points 4-6 are clear.

 

I have question... how something will make bad?
For example: I assume, I can make only run Laptop from USB. Flash - did not go.

How can I make install - backup bios or bios from Lenovo?

      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.
