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!!

Anyone can guide me? Thanks a lot.

      Hello !
      I tried a tutorial on the forum to remove the supervisor password on a X260 thinkpad but the winbond 25Q128FVPQ chip is not recognized with the programmer CH341A and ASprogramer (does not detect automatically and not manually). Plugged into the motherboard with a soic8.

      Can you help me with detection?
      Can I find the password with the software or do I have to write it?
       
      Thank you so much !!!

      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.

      To install the unlocked bios, I prepared and booted a freedos usb. I start the installation by typing flash.bat but every time I get the following error: Error 28: Protected Range Registers are currently set by BIOS, preventing flash Access. Please contact the target System BIOS vendor for an option to disable Protected Range Registers.
      How can i solve this problem ?
