y510p LCD Overclock

Recommended Posts

I've tinkered with the settings mine is the Matte TLB2

70-72 Hz is the only stable ones.

I've Noticed though after reverting to 60 Hz My eyes were now susceptible to seeing subtle changes.

When I lower the brightness, Slight flicker is noticable. I Panicked for a moment thinking I did something to my screen ended up that setting it to max brightness remedies this. Lowering it halfway makes the flickering gone too.

Due to the fact that Lenovo's Brightness settings is using PMW it seems. It creates delays in the frequency to induce low brightness it seems. So basically with a max of 60hz at Max brightness.

Are there any fix for this to modify the algorithm present in the Basic Lenovo Brightness settings? To make the PMW bearable.

Wow that's pretty crazy. And this is with the stock 1366x768 screen? What is panel number?

It is actually possible to get 120 FPS in a lot of games with SLI at the lower resolution. Maybe I should find a 768p screen that can overclock to 120 Hz and install it on my Y500. :P

My Y500 o/c to 120hz

Also on what resolution does this happen? Maybe it can be OCed to 120Hz in 720p then?

Kinda Annoying but I've noticed If I ever remove the Ultrabay GPU the flicker is nonexistent when Running the Laptop otherwise running normally it is noticable? Could there some Hardware problems? or this is the result of the SLI?

The flicker is basically like the LED flashing on some greys

PS: Its actually because y510p reverts to the default non sli state retaining, normal brightness setting, my bad. I wanna confirm though if anybody else has a similar experience on their screens.

I have same the same thing. If I switch between sli state the screen will always flicker a bit. After that it's everything is fine though

Stable 1920x1200 32-bit 185 Hz

Hmm, right ... disclaimer;

NOT on a y510p, obviously, 1920x1200 = WUXGA, not HD, it's got (1200-1080)/1080 * 100 = 11% more pixels than HD :smug:.

Ok, so ran into this thread by chance and thought I'd test it on my Latitude D800, it's got the world's first ≥HD panel, pre-dating the advent of Blu-ray by 2 years ...

It's stable all-right, but can only verify this on Refresh Rate Multitool:

Not because the browser tools fail, but because the Pentium M can't cope with the browser's resource demand (cpu à la 2004). Funny though; am using a 1000Hz usb polling rate mouse (on a ~1250Hz port), which shows ... almost too fast, if it weren't for the high resolution.

This 15.4" TN lcd was build april 2003, so we're talking about something that's over 11½ years old by now: LQ154M1LW02.

My control panel does not seem to have any option above the standard 60. I have the SLI GT755M, so it should be there. Also, this might be related; my Intel HD panel will not open period, and I cannot reinstall.

I also managed to get to 103hz then i dropped down to 100hz, I do notice scan lines sometimes when I move a window around but its usually unnoticable otherwise and it usually only effects certain colors. Glossy display btw.

Okay to save space, I think we can all come to the conclusion that glossy display = 100Hz Stable, non-glossy = 80Hz stable.

does this work on y500? 103hz is pretty damn good, it's as close as clear motion as we can get which we have on our TV's

Yes it does. Technically LCD overclocking works on any laptop without switchable graphics.

Hello People Ali here, long time lurker first time poster. This indeed is a great find. From what I've gathered the matte screen gets 80-83hz and the glossy ones 100+. Sorry for my noobish queries...but will the 80hz or 100hz have that surreal effect we have in our 120hz tvs in movies and tv shows?

I can go up to 90 here, matte display y500. Have to dial down the settings a bit but Borderlands The Pre Sequel is...well, I thought 60 was smooth. Then happened :P

Has anyone found a solution to overclock display in Y510p with Intel+nVidia?

The removable Ultrabay nVidia 755M is not available, co i can't swich to nVidia control panel to chage it.

Custom Resulution Utility program also don't work.

I second this - maybe a modded driver? Or is it simply impossible with Optimus running?

that's very interesting, though what are the main benefits of ocing the lcd? what do you mean by it looks better?
