I've bought a budget Lenovo Y500 (i7 3630qm, gt 650m sli, 16gb) 2nd hand for mobile gaming. I'm pretty satisfied with it but have strange low texture "bugs" in special games like TW: Rome 2, Fallout 4, etc...
Tried to change like driver version, tricking with nvidia inspector, ingame settings etc...Installed GPU-Z to realize that the 2 VGA-s running on 2 different vBios versions:
- 1st card: 80.07.27.00.33
Bit of surfing found official Lenovo vBios update. Which i installed without issues. Restart, than the 1st one changing to 80.07.27.00.3a but no sli. After few minutes this 3a version "changing" back to the original (.33). Actualy i dont care the numbers but i would like to use my rigs full "potential" with decent textures... Strange, i have no idea.
Also wondered unlocking bios to solve the previous problem but i dont have permission to download from techinferno forum (lack of comments/posts).
Could you help/advise/explain about low qual. texture problem, possible solution for vBios changing please?
Thanks in advance,
ps: feel free to ask for explain because of my english sorry
I have 970M 3GB version and I am looking for unlocked BIOS
I tried flashing N16E-GT_3GB_84.04.22.00.08 version that i found on this forum, however nothing changed after flash
Can someone help?
I attached the screen-shot that shows that nothing changed after flashing
Thanks in advance!!!
As title explains, while trying to troubleshoot why my card wouldn't display graphics at boot time, I had loaded a few different rom files to see the effects. After I tried the dell then HP version of the roms with no improvement, I tried to load a modded rom from a totally different card (m5950) which came with this machine (an HP Elitebook 8560W). That was a mistake on my part because now it will not post!
I tried the trick of bridging the # 1 and 8 pins on the vbios flash memory chip on the card, and booted it up. However, the machine still did not post and this time the capslock and numlock light were blinking..
Is there anything left to try, or should I try try to get a new reprogrammed vbios chip to solder on?
Hi, guys! I've been browsing the forums a lot lately and as of now, I've yet to find Vbios for the 3gb and 4gb versions of the 970m and the 980m respectively. I'm not sure if no one has ever come around to unlocking them or I just haven't looked hard enough. In any case, if someone here actually knows where to find them, please do tell as I'm completely sure that it would help a lot of people (myself included).
So my r2's old gpu died and I decided it was a good time to upgrade. Got myself a clevo 8970m on BR44465.003. My laptop posts and I can hear windows starting but no LCD.
I ended up trying this card in my 17 (r5) and although my bios can see the card neither atiflash or the device manager will recognize it. I have no idea what to do.
