Recommended Posts

Hi. I failure upgrade my bios from to 3.05 to 3.08 -- installation froze on 40% and nothing more happen. After that i must flash crisis bios 3.05 bot it not stock (bios freez after 3 sec after boot). And second card geforce 755m doesnt work - but is visible in menager.
Now i want flash full 3.05 BIOS but i have problem with 3 point: /'(3) - Now you need to downgrade the firmware back to v2.07 (Y510p-Y410p_v207_[stock].zip) in order to flash the mod."
Always freez in 40% during the instalation. 
When i want flash 3.05 using USB DOS stick. nothing happen because i have already 3.05 (but not full)
I have y510p coputer i5, 8gb with 2x755msli ...

Can someone tell me how flash 2.07 using USB DOS stick?

I hope this isn't off topic, but I'm wondering if anyone has ever successfully found a compatible ac card from the whitelist. I recently purchased one that appeared to match the whitelist, but got the error.

Edit: yeah, looks like I just didn't know how to run a .bat file.  I'm fine deleting this post if someone can tell me where/how to do that.

I'm new to this, so there's a decent chance I just don't understand what's going on, but instruction (1) is confusing me.

I've got all the files downloaded, but I don't know if I'm supposed to be running that fptw64 application first and then the .bat file or what. 

 

Also, when I run the fptw64 application, it opens the cmd window and just has a list of functions, with "press any key to continue" prompts twice and then automatically closes.  An error file is then generated that has the text inside "Error 200: Invalid parameter value specified by user. Use -? option to see help."

I don't want to continue with the instructions because it seems like some sort of actual backup file is supposed to be getting generated and that's not happening.

Hi! 

Don't run fptw64.exe! 

Just run backup.bat

Thanks a ton for the bios mod. I am looking to undervolt my GPU(single gt755m) as my temps are going through the roof and i am facing extreme thermal throttling. Currently i am on bios v3.08. I have already undervolted my CPU to -0.100 and active core ratio multipliers to x17(for all cores). didn't change anything else. Can someone guide me on how to undervolt my gpu as i am a noob in this area and don't really want to mess anything up by doing things on my own. This is my only laptop. Do i need to flash the unlocked bios as mentioned in the instructions for undervolting , or can i do it without flashing the moded v3.05? Also do i need to use nvidea inspector or the msi aferburner. Can someone guide me how to do so with either of the two softwares. Also how low can this gpu go in terms of undervolting. Thanks in advance!!

      Hello there!
      I am new on the forum. I'd need some help. I own a lenovo ideacentre t540-icb g, and i would need to unlock all the options in my bios, especially overclocking and thermal configuration. I tried with both amibcp and mmtool, but i didn't succeed (Error 18).
      I wonder if you could help me or give me some advice.
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi,
       
      I need help in fixing my Thinkpad.

      I just got a T440p yesterday. It was working perfectly until the following:

      I reinstalled Windows and then I installed Vantage.

      I installed all the latest drivers.
      I also choose to install the bios update. The bios update ran in Windows and it asked me to restart. After restarting, the screen was blank. I tried powering it off and on and I saw the Thinkpad logo but after that the screen was blank.

      I tried powering on and off again and there's no Thinkpad logo now and the screen is just blank with the green power on. No sound, no nothing.


      Here's what I tried:
      Pressing the power button 10 times and then holding it for 30 seconds. Unplugged and battery is detachted Detached the CMOS battery and the reattached it Removed the ram, harddisk and optical disk drive. Attached the battery and inserted the charger. I turned it on and there was a couple of beeps Tried pressing FN+R and created a bootable USB I'd like to ask: How do I fix this? What do I need to do?
      Can I reflash the bios in some other way? Do I need to buy a new motherboard? Will this solve the issue? It's my first thinkpad and I'm really excited but I was bummed out that this happened. Can you please help me?

      Thanks in advance!

      Hello everyone! I am looking for an answer to a problem I cannot find a solution to ... I purchased an Amd wx 4150 MXM GPU module su e bay to upgrade my HP 8570W Mobile Workstation which is currently equipped with a Fire Pro M4000. Once the new GPU has been installed, the PC screen no longer turns on but works only with external monitors connected via the docking station. The same happens once the drivers are updated! If I put the old card back on, the integrated monitor starts working again ... How can I fix it?

      Bios Release Version – v2.0.0
       

       
      Updated or Modded Items:
      A11 UNLOCKED BIOS FOR m18Xr2 (UNLOCKED BY SVL7 AND FULL CREDIT GOES TO HIM FOR UNLOCKING!)
      SVL7 Also created the PRR2.EXE tool that allows you to flash the new bios by unlocking it.  (FULL CREDIT GOES TO HIM FOR THAT FILE PRR2.EXE)
       
      Here are ALL the things I've added, modded, and enhanced on this bios -
      I've added FULL LEGACY SUPPORT ON THIS BIOS with ONE or TWO CARDS (SLI).  You can FINALLY use Win 7 OS on your machine and run the 900 series GPU's! 
      This is a MAJOR breakthrough!
       
      LEGACY SUPPORT Confirmed.  Works with 900 series GPu's in single OR SLI formation Updated the Intel RST Legacy to v12.9.0.2006 (Supports TRIM in RAID0 - CONFIRMED) Updated Intel RST UEFI to v12.9.0.2006 (Supports TRIM in RAID0 - CONFIRMED) Updated the ONBOARD Video Card for the HD3xxx to v2171 - FROM v2132 Updated ONBOARD Video Card for the HD4xxx to v2171 - FROM v2132 Updated the LAN Firmware & PXE Boot from 2.0.5.9 to v2.0.6.6 ADDED NvMe Support for m18xr2 ADDED M.2 support for m18xr2 Updated CPU Microcode to v29 for the 2900 CPU's Updated CPU Microcode to v1c for the 3900 CPU's Updated GOP Driver for Intel Sandy Bridge CPU Updated GOP Driver for Intel Ivy Bridge CPU Updated MAIN GOP Policy module for the m18xR2 Eliminated some code that wasn't used in the m18xR2 Updated CSM Module (v2) Streamline some coding to make mod(s) run a little more efficiently (v2) Added FPARTS.TXT to rar file in v2. (I had forgot to add it in v1) v2.5 to be released shortly.  I've updated a few more modules that I didn't realize could be updated.  (It's only 3 modules, but it's still an update!)   It should be released in about a week.  Hope this helps ya'll!  
      Instructions to flash:
      Use a flash drive to create a boot disk into dos Unzip ALL files into the root of the flash drive (flash.bat, r2final.bin, fpt.exe, flash.bat, prr2.exe, fparts.txt,m18r2.hdr, m18r2.hdr.bin, readmefirst.txt) BOOT INTO DOS – Note, that when you set the bios to legacy in order to boot into dos, you MAY have to reinstall OS!  (Just be prepared to reinstall no matter what) Once you boot into dos, run the file flash.bat It will unlock your bios (THANKS TO SVL7’s BIOS UNLOCKING TOOL – ALL CREDIT TO HIM FOR THIS TOOL!) Let it flash… Reboot your pc, and enjoy the MASSIVE updates!  
      Be on the lookout as I do plan to release newer version with more updates in the future.  However, it wont be for at least a few weeks as I'm now working on legacy support for the m17xR4 and several other systems.  So please be patient!
       
      ENJOY!
