    For those who don't like the restrictions Lenovo put on their system, here's a BIOS mod that will get you back at least some of the freedom you should have over your own hardware. Features: WLAN card whitelist removed, any (hardware-wise compatible) card should now work hidden BIOS menus unlocked VBIOS tweaked for more performance and better tuning possibilities Keep in mind that not necessarily all of the BIOS options available with this mod will be fully functional, so use the new available settings with care. If you're unsure about something don't change it and ask here, someone might be able to help. Available for v1.07 / v1.09 / v1.10 and v3.05. v2.04 and v2.07 added (only whitelist removal as for now) If you have a different BIOS (or more specific, a BIOS newer than 3.05) I will need a copy of it in order to make it work for your system. Instructions for flashing the modified BIOS v3.05: You need a USB stick prepared to run DOS, here is a guide you can follow in case you don't know how to do this: Guide by @StamatisX - thanks! >>> Before continuing make sure the AC adapter is connected to your laptop and your battery has at least 20% charge remaining. <<< (0) - NOTE: This step is Only necessary if your system isn't already using BIOS v3.05 Update to the official v3.05 BIOS provided by Lenovo . (1) - Create a backup of your own BIOS (now v3.05) by using Fptw64 tool. Extract the files and run the included .bat file from an admin command prompt. . (2) - Download Lenovo_Y510p-Y410p_[v3.05]_modified.zip and put the files of folder [1] to the root of your prepared USB DOS stick. Let the BiosFixer prepare your BIOS for flashing by drag and dropping your backup file on it. Put the created "v305mod.bin" file to the root of your USB DOS drive as well. . (3) - Now you need to downgrade the firmware back to v2.07 (Y510p-Y410p_v207_[stock].zip) in order to flash the mod. . (4) - Boot from your USB DOS drive, when you see the command prompt type BIOS and hit enter. Wait until the BIOS is flashed (you can safely ignore warnings about non-existing regions). . (5) - Once the BIOS flash completed with no errors, type EC and hit enter. Wait until the EC is flashed. Then reboot. . (6) - Go to the BIOS setup menu, load the default settings, apply and reboot. Done. In case you're using an ultra bay GPU follow the instructions in post #2 and flash the vbios.. NOTE: It's crucial that you flash both, BIOS and EC. Having different EC and BIOS versions can in certain situations lead to issues. IMPORTANT: If you want to go back to stock v3.05 you can do that easily by simply using the official update from Lenovo. That's it, nothing additional required in this case. Old instructions for users with v1.07 / v1.09 / v1.10 or v2.04 / v2.07 who for some reasons don't want to update to v3.05: Video walk-through of bios settings (thanks @allstone): My donation link in case you want to buy me a beer Download link for files referenced in this post:

    Guys I wanted to thank you all for the work you put in the adaptor- it works like a charm with my y510p- I got the internal screen working with the modded BIOS, version 3 of the adaptor and a wonderful GTX980 :-) Thank you! A last question remains for me: Do you have any clue if i can use a pci express extender cable to put the hot gtx a few inches away from the laptop? I tried it once with a cheap cable from thermaltec, but that didn't work out. Do you guys have any experience with these extenders? Or is geralds adaptor wired in sone way that an extender wouldn't work in the first place?

    Modding the nvidia inf for the first time can be quite difficult but once you know what you're doing it's actually quite simple and straightforward. Now I'm going to try to explain as best as I can how to mod your nvidia inf by using the newest nvidia driver (397.64) as example. First you want to get 3 ID's, your GPU model, laptop model and laptop brand, by using your ID PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11E1&SUBSYS_05801028 GPU Model code Laptop model code Laptop manufacturer code Now using these 3 ID's we can make your first string, which is the string that defines what video card you have. NVIDIA_DEV.11E1.05A9.1028 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M" <-- this is an already existing string but now we're going to change 1 ID so it matches your laptop which is the 05A9 to 0580, your specific laptop model. NVIDIA_DEV.11E1.0580.1028 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M" <-- this is the string that you want to save on a text document somewhere, you'll need it every time you mod the nvidia inf for the newest drivers. Now to find the correct section is actually quite easy, just use CTRL+F and look for an existing string with 11E1, in the newest drivers you can use section24, this is the existing string %NVIDIA_DEV.11E1.05A9.1028% = Section024, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11E1&SUBSYS_05A91028 Now we're going to modify it so it'll work for your laptop by replacing the green ID's with your ID's %NVIDIA_DEV.11E1.0580.1028% = Section024, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11E1&SUBSYS_05801028 <- this should be the correct string. Make sure that you got windows driver enforcement turned off. Or what I personally do is run windows 10 in test mode.

    A New Battle Royale Experience - Ring of Elysium I'm sure by now everyone is familiar with the battle royale genre that took PC gaming by storm with PUBG's introduction last year. Since then, Fortnite and many other BR clones hit the market and that trend shows no signs of slowing down in the future as well known franchises such as Battlefield make the foray into battle royale. Tencent, one of China's largest game publishers, is currently testing its own free to play BR game in Asia called Ring of Elysium (ROE). If you haven't heard of Tencent, they're the company that Bluehole (makers of PUBG) partnered with to create the mobile version of PUBG and they also own a large chunk of Epic Games which makes the game engine for both PUBG and Fortnite. Free to Play In Asia (for now) Ring of Elysium is Tencent's version of PUBG for the desktop which is currently beta testing in Asia with plans to expand availability of the game in the future. The only way to get this game if you are a NA/EU player is to download the Garena client and go through a few additional steps to get it working. You can skip ahead to the download instructions and grab a cup of coffee while ROE downloads and you finish reading the rest of this article. Quality of Life Improvements ROE has the same premise as PUBG and Fortnite where players eject from an airplane onto the map and then frantically search for weapons and armor to fend off other hostile players before the zone closes in on them. Even the inventory UI (user interface) in ROE looks eerily similar to PUBG but when you look beneath the surface and dig a little deeper, you'll find ROE plays quite differently than PUBG while also bringing with it sorely needed quality of life improvements that PUBG still lacks. When I began my first match, I noticed there was no lobby like PUBG but instead I was already inside the airplane coasting along in the sky with less waiting time than a traditional PUBG lobby. Next, a sound rang out indicating it was time to eject and when I did, my character was equipped with a glider which seemed more maneuverable and enjoyable to use than a parachute. The first place I landed was a theme park aptly named "Ocean Park" and quickly made my way to a table containing weapons and grabbed the LVOA-C (a 5.56 mm AR) and accompanying ammo while watching the player adjacent to me do the same. I lucked out and managed to dispatch my opponent with the LVOA-C and immediately noticed a difference in the gun play compared to PUBG, my bullets hit exactly where I aimed despite the high ping to Thailand. Next I ran over and grabbed an SMG (MP5) along with a 4x scope, 2x scope and vertical foregrip. While perusing through my inventory, I noticed each gun had two slots for scopes and that I could switch between them using a hotkey--a simple yet badly needed quality of life improvement I'd always yearned for in PUBG! I tossed the 2x scope on my MP5 and 4x on the LVOA-C and continued running around looking for more loot when I came across the G28 DMR. I figured I'd toss the MP5 in favor of a AR/DMR combo and as I grabbed the G28, I noticed the vertical foregrip and 2x scope automatically switched from the MP5 to the G28 so I didn't have to manually remove and add them myself like I would have had to in PUBG. Here's an example of this mechanic at work: Another quality of life improvement that is featured in ROE is the ability to ping 3D positions using a hotkey which makes callouts infinitely less cumbersome than trying to describe the location of your opponent based on landmarks like PUBG. Additionally, ROE has hit markers so when your bullet hits another player, feedback is given to the player via a hit indicator which gives better feedback than a tiny speck of blood like in PUBG. Hit Detection, Bullet Velocity & Combat Having grabbed a level 2 helmet, backpack and vest, I was ready to make my way out of Ocean Park and head towards a town called Whale Town (these names are probably placeholders). While heading over there, I saw a guy about 150 meters out running out in the open and I decided to take a shot at him with my G28 + 4x scope. As I tracked him, I led my shot like I normally do in PUBG and fired but noticed I missed because I had overcompensated thinking bullet velocity and drop were like PUBG when in fact they were nothing alike. Next, I aimed slightly ahead of him and fired again and the bullet hit him dead on and I continued by firing a few more successive shots until he was dead. ROE bullets seem to travel at a greater velocity and have less drop (even though they are affected by wind like PUBG) compared to PUBG. In addition, the hit detection seems to be spot on for the most part (when taking high ping into account) unlike PUBG which can quite often seem spotty. I wanted to test this theory further by trying other sniper weapons out and I eventually came across a Remington 700 5.56mm sniper rifle and gave up the G28 in favor of it. Thanks to the quality of life improvements, my extended mag and scope from the G28 were automatically added to the Remington 700 and I was good to go. I decided to perch on top of the roof and wait on a victim to test out the Remington 700 and it wasn't long before I found my next target who was blissfully running across an open field about 150-200 meters out. Seeing how little I had to compensate for movement with the G28, I figured the Remington 700 would be similar and I was right, as soon as I fired, the bullet lasered in on the guys skull and he was down for the count. I also noticed there was no delay when aiming down the sights compared to PUBG and other games. Some players who value realism above all else may argue that less bullet drop and immediate ADS isn't a good thing but it seems Tencent has decided that a more casual approach to gun play could be more enjoyable for many and for me personally that is indeed the case. Dynamic Weather As I was running from one town to the next trying to survive the onslaught of other players, I noticed the weather had changed from a sunny day to one with rain and strong winds. It turns out each ROE match has unique dynamic weather which includes rain, wind, lightning and fog. Dynamic weather isn't just for looks (though it looks great), as it drives players to change their tactics. In a sunny setting, one can easily discern other players footsteps and see them from a distance but when the weather shifts to strong winds and rain, footsteps and other sounds become more muted and visibility is also reduced which forces the player to be more careful and aware of their surroundings. Here's an example of the dynamic weather at play (yeah I got shot up pretty bad): Eventually, the rain cleared up and I continued on my journey to the center of the zone and came across a silly looking Mr. Bean car (a mini cooper knock-off) and decided to take it for a spin. Vehicles Not Quite Up To Par While PUBG's vehicle physics aren't exactly the best, they do have ROE beat by far for now. As I mentioned above, I was driving around in my tiny Mr. Bean car and while accelerating, I tried turning and and rather than a gradual turn like I intended, it did a hard right into a tree. You could argue this is a side effect of a 230 ms ping but that isn't exactly it, the vehicle physics seem almost non-existent and as a consequence, they drive more like a cheap mobile game than a fully fleshed out desktop BR game. However, since the game is in beta testing and nowhere near complete, this can be excused. Performance & Limitations The good news is that despite being in early beta, the game runs quite well and anything with a 1050 Ti and above should run it smoothly at 1080p. Unfortunately, because the game is still in its infancy, Tencent hasn't fully fleshed out all the graphics and bind options yet so you can't technically go above 1920 x 1080 px resolution unless you tab out of the game and use the NVIDIA control panel to manually adjust the resolution above 1080p. Similarly, rebinding keys to the mouse isn't yet possible so one workaround right now is to use your own mouse's software (e.g. Razer Synapse) or a third party one like X-Mouse. Should You Try It Out? Of Course! Even with the game limited to Asia right now, it is free and well worth checking out if you are a battle royale and especially PUBG fan. It offers a similar experience to PUBG with with the noted quality of life and gun play improvements I mentioned above. In addition, the map itself is quite beautiful and is definitely a step above what PUBG has to offer. I've been playing this game for roughly two weeks now and haven't gotten tired of it yet so I recommend every BR/PUBG fan to give this game a try since you have nothing to lose. How to Download Ring of Elysium (Updated 5/2/2018) Downloading ROE has become a lot less complicated now thanks to official English language support from Tencent. So let's begin: 1. First thing you will need is Garena client so head on over here and grab it: https://www.garena.sg/gpc 2. Next, launch Garena and switch your region to Thailand and then restart your Garena client. 3. Select Ring of Elysium from the list of games in the Garena client and start your download. 4. Once the download is complete, launch ROE. 5. Hit Esc and press the middle button (see picture below) which is for settings and you will then see a drop down menu that lets you change the language from Thai to English, do this and then press the "Apply" button (it will be in Thai, see second picture below). Afterwards, it will prompt you to restart the game which you will need to do. 6. Restart ROE and now it should be in English. And you're all set! Come Join Us! If you would like to join the T|I crew and others in a game of ROE (and other games), then hop in our discord and say hello! We're always looking for new players to game with.

    Hey guys, This is a thread for sharing what you have learned about configuring a graphics card using Gerald's Y510p Ultrabay Graphics Adapter. It was created to make it easier for new users to find the information they need to successfully configure and use the adapter on their computer. I consulted Gerald before creating this thread. Please feel free to post information, insights and tips below. The Y510P Graphics Adapter What is it? The Y510P Graphics Adapter is a card which will allow you to use a full-length PCIe desktop graphics card with a Lenovo Y410p or Y510p laptop. It plugs into the device's Ultrabay. This is the swappable device bay which is, for instance, used for the second NVIDIA card in Y510P SLI configurations. Please be aware that the Y510P Graphics Adapter is currently only compatible with the Y410p and Y510p. It is not compatible, then, with the Y500 and other Lenovo or IBM laptops that feature an Ultrabay. The Y510P Graphics Adapter was developed by Gerald, a member of this forum. What it needs to run - hardware In addition to the Y410p/Y510p laptop itself, the Y510P Graphics Adapter requires a separate power supply unit (known also as a PSU) to provide the graphics card with electricity. An actual PCIe graphics card is, of course, also required. If you are going to use the power supply unit to power the Graphics Adapter and the graphics card plugged into it only, a 450-watt unit will likely suffice, at least for current graphics cards. While graphics cards manufacturers may advise you to obtain a more powerful PSU, this is because the PSU would normally also be used to power other components, such as the hard drive and CPU. Note that the Radeon RX Vega 64 and R9 Fury X are exceptions to this rule, as they have been shown to draw close to 500 watts of power when they are under a lot of strain. Please note that without further modifications only AMD graphics cards will work, due to checks that are carried out by the computer on startup. High_Voltage has made two mods which should allow you to use an NVDIA card with the Graphics Adapter: a BIOS mod and a hardware mod: * Thread on the BIOS mod: https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/12014-lenovo-y410py510p-bios-mod-to-enable-nvidia-egpu-support/ * Post on the hardware mod: https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/9686-y510p-ultrabay-graphics-card/&do=findComment&comment=163854 Please be aware that flashing your BIOS is potentially dangerous, even if the BIOS you are installing is an official version. To minimise the risks, always back up your data first and make sure that your laptop is fully charged and connected to the electrical grid before you start the flashing process. What it needs to run - software Three versions of the Y510P Graphics Adapter exist: * Version 1: this is the experimental version which Gerald originally posted about. * Version 2: this is the version that Gerald sold in 2016 and part of 2017. It requires BIOS version 2.07 and Windows 10 to function. Earlier BIOS versions may also work. * Version 3: this is the version Gerald is selling at the moment of writing. Thanks to a discovery first posted to the forums by user David 'Soap' Washington, it should work with any BIOS version, as long as one uses an AMD graphics card rather than an NVIDIA one. It may also work Windows 7, 8 and 8.1, in addition to Windows 10. I am currently using this version of the adapter with Windows 10, using BIOS version 3.08. Videos on installing and using the Y510P Graphics Adapter Note that these videos only illustrate the installation process and performance with AMD cards. * Installing the adapter: - By Tesla: a general introduction on Version 2 of the adapter and how to install it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KL7muHXsAmI - By ManyStrongWords/Go'Vic Gaming: a video on installing Version 2 of the adapter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pviqwFRDn4 * Gameplay/performance: - By Tesla: using an AMD RX 470 with the adapter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqdDeZ0UCgc - By me: using an AMD Vega 56 with the adapter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVbsib8eHRg&t=25s Other useful videos * Removing the Y510P Ultrabay, by Someone7089: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYcVlaMV0Ig Example of a configuration using the adapter My own configuration consists of the following: * Lenovo Y510P with an Intel Core i7-4700MQ CPU, 16 GB RAM and an Intel SSD hard drive; * iiyama G-Master GB2888UHSU 4K monitor; * Gerald's Ultrabay Graphics Adapter, version 3; * AMD RX Vega 56 graphics card; * Corsair 450W PSU; * OS: Windows 10 Creators' Update. Below is an overview of the steps I had to take to get this configuration to run well on an existing Windows 10 Creators Update install. Note that when I installed a fresh copy of the Fall Creators Update, Windows automatically recognised my hardware, monitor included, and I did not have to disable the other graphics adapters. I do find I sometimes have to reinstall the graphics drivers, as updates in AMD' s driver package sometimes result in The Witcher 3 crashing when a cutscene is played. ***** In order to get my configuration to run well on an existing Windows 10 Creators Update install, I had to do the following: * Run the monitor at its native resolution. * Install the appropriate driver for the monitor, instead of the generic one provided by Microsoft. * Disable both the NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M and the Intel HD Graphics 4600 display adapters in the device manager. Note 1: removing the drivers for your Intel and NVIDIA display adapters is unnecessary. It is also likely to be futile as, ultimately, Windows may reinstall the driver even if you disable automatic driver updates. Note 2: an HDMI connection with your monitor should work just fine without you disabling the Intel HD Graphics 4600. A Displayport connection, however, will probably only work as intended if you do disable the Intel display adapter. If you do not do this, Windows will completely duplicate the video output displayed on the internal monitor on the external monitor, including the internal monitor's resolution. Note that this is not the ordinary 'duplicate screens' feature as there is no way to disable it until the Intal graphics adapter is disabled. A Displayport connection is generally preferable since most Freesync-capable monitors do not support Freesync over HDMI. Also, AMD cards usually do not output colour depths over 8bpc over HDMI connections. Note 3: should you find that the backlighting of the internal monitor remains on even though only the external monitor is active, all you have to do is press the FN and F2 keys at the same time. This will switch off the internal monitor.

    Right! Who's ready for the next portion of cool things? This time it's the hardware mod I was talking about a while ago. In theory, it should work with all the Ultrabay models including Y500/Y400/Y410/Y510p WITHOUT THE NEED TO MOD YOUR BIOS! So far, it worked on my Y510p. Looking forward to future tests. I know, "hardware mod" may sound scary, but please consider this option too! Actually, it is beautifully simple! It's so simple that I'm not even sure whether it needs a separate topic!

    The attached files tell you what you need to do to mod the two files for PEG/ Dedicated, get into the practice as there is nobody consistently doing .inf mods here anymore. I have modded 391.01 following those instructions successfully however I hold no responsibility if it doesn't work on your machine as I've not checked for compatibility beyond my own, but let us know if it goes fine. The instructions were created from older modded files using the method @Ezio21 suggested. So thank you @Ezio21. Please note you still need to follow the whole string of instructions for installing modded drivers as previously outlined by @J95. But in short: 0) Make sure you have a copy of your last working driver ready to reinstall if anything goes wrong. 1) Download driver "XXX.XX-notebook-win10-64bit-international-whql" and unzip using your preferred compression software. 2) Make a copy of the nv_dispi.inf and nvdmi.inf from Display.Driver into a folder for modding them. Make a backup of the originals too. 3) Follow attached instructions to modify those files. 4) Replace the two files within Display.Driver 5) Delete all folders other than: 6) Restart (Shift + Restart on Win10) in safe mode. 7) Use DDU to uninstall old driver in full 8) Restart (Shift + Restart on Win10) and Disable Driver Signature Enforcement. 9) Install from setup.exe 10) Hope that you did everything right. Once again the attached instructions worked for me. Hopefully they work for you. NVDISPI INSTRUCTIONS.pdf NVDMI INSTRUCTIONS.pdf

I couldnt find any 20x20x2mm copper shims on Ebay at the time, if I did then I uused them and put them in a 4x1 grid instead. I also glued 2 of the 15x15x2mm copper shims on each side of the heatsink-pipe. I used Arctic Alumina to glue them. In between the CPU and heatsink I placed a 20x20x1mm copper shim. I used Collaboratory Liquid Ultra between the CPU and copper shim, and between the copper shim and heatsink I used Arctic Silver. I set a custom fan profile using HPFanControl, to remove the annoying constant fan ramp up and ramp down, which is like someone keeps turning a vacuum on and off all the time, Now this annoying RPM jiggle was when I had my Dual Core 3520m... I haven't had enough time to test the standard BIOS fan profile with the 3740QM, during normal laptop usage yet. The standard BIOS fan profile was making me insane when I used my 3520m, so this was really needed. So the custom fan profile makes the laptop more quiet(by allowing it to hover on higher temperatures), when I do my normal stuff like browsing or YouTube. Received the 3740QM today and installed it with the cooling mods, then set the maximum power limit to 99%. I also ran the winsat tool again, just in case. I ran an OCCT stress test to see if the laptop thermal throttles, TDP throttles, or just plainly crashes when the CPU is pushed to the max over a longer time. I disabled my custom fan profile(HPFanControl) for this test, as I have not yet tested the HPFanControl with OCCT stress test, so I did not want my results to be broken by the use of a possibly bugged homemade fan profile. I ran the test for 3.5h, using RealTemp to measure max CPU core temperatures(it has a fast polling rate), and HWInfo to verify there are no "Windows Hardware Error" counts, the max power usage, if any throttling occurs, and if the CPU frequency is stable at 2.7GHz(99% maximum limit in control center) Results: Doesn't seem to be any throttling at all, and max CPU temperature was 93 degrees at an early point in the test, which tells that the maximum CPU temperature was not climbing with time. CPU frequency seemed pretty stable at 2.7GHz the whole test. The max CPU Package Power was 32.973 W(note the iGPU was not stress tested at all). Max CPU voltage was 0.941 V. Other notes: I tried using Noctua NT-H1 but all of the paste would get pushed out of the sides of the CPU die, leaving the actual space between the die and heatsink without any paste...Arctic silver 5 worked better. I've broken the heatsink of my macbook pro once by using Liquid metal on it. The liquid metal literally started to boil the heatsink, like one of those "science exploding foam" experiments, and split it in half, all while i was standing stumped and frozen by the experience. So I can't recommend using liquid metal directly on the heatsink, as a little particle of liquid metal that somehow gets leaked to other non-copper part of the heatsink starts to melt the whole metal block. It should(hopefully) be fine if you use it between a copper shim and the CPU die, like I did here, as liquid metal and copper seems to work fine except a little color change on the copper with time. If the copper somehow gets unusable then just replace the copper shim. Better and cheaper than having to replace the whole heatsink. I haven't tried throttlestop yet as I have not figured out how I should use it. I haven't tried running a stress test with 100% max CPU limit yet, im pretty sure it will thermal throttle when running stress tests, but stress tests does not directly tell the story to most personal use cases. I'm looking for the temperature spikes during short bursts of high CPU usage, which should happen in most cases for me, like when browsing etc, and im pretty sure the CPU won't thermal throttle on those times. However I do watch a lot of YouTube in higher quality(1440p and 4K), and on an external monitor, so the CPU will be taxed over a longer time in that use case. What is most important for me is if my custom fan profile will silence the annoying fan ramping up/down. Bottom line if it runs quiet then I will keep it at 100%, but if the fan needs to ramp up then I will run it at 99%. I got a pair of Bose QC25 Active Noise Cancelling headphones to replace my old ANC headphones which I use almost all day, which silences any fan noise, even at max RPM, so I might allow the standard BIOS fan profile when I'm using the cans, as the profile is more aggressive. When I take my heaphones off while doing some CPU taxing activity I'll probably have to turn the custom fan profile on. Conclusion: My laptop didn't burn down so im glad, also now I can watch 1440p60FPS high bitrate YouTube videos and Twitch 1080p60FPS streams without dropping multiple frames a second.(Couldn't do it with my dual core 3520m) If theres any other tests anyone want me to do please give me a suggestions

    ********** * This is only for systems with Intel chipsets. * * It still won't work for all of them, but for some it does. * This article is meant as an explanation for interested / advanced users. Since some of the more recent bios mods require the tool described below in order to allow flashing, I decided to share some information about it. Also I really don't like how users get locked out of their own hardware, this is a way to circumvent a couple of the more recent restrictions of certain systems. I hope this will be useful to some of you. If you know other ways to get around the current firmware updating restrictions (per software), please let me know. The problem: With the appearance of Windows 8 and Microsoft's requirement for OEMs to support 'secure boot' in order to get the Win8 certificate for their machines, a lot of the most recent systems (notebooks and desktops) use now firmware which is digitally signed. Since secure boot looses its purpose if firmware updates aren't verified and protected as well, the latest UEFI implementations come with a secure firmware upgrading procedure which makes sure that only properly signed and unmodified images can be flashed. This updating protections is active even if you don't enable secure boot. These two pictures explain the idea behind secure firmware updating very clearly: On the second picture you can see that the system verifies the firmware image even before it loads the drivers required for the flash. For bios modders or people who want to use modified firmware, the consequences of this are severe. It simply isn't possible anymore to flash digitally signed bios which have been modified, there's no way around the signature, at least not with the usual tools. The solution (at least for some systems): The only way to get around those new restrictions is to directly program the firmware flash memory and therefore leave out the verifying of the image. In Intel systems the flash chip is directly wired to the PCH, and it can be accessed by an Intel utility called Flash Programming Tool. It's a very powerful application which supports the most common flash memory chips. The requirement for it to work on a system are the following: - BIOS region of the flash memory must have write permissions - The OEM or BIOS vendor omitted to set an additional flash lock. - You can't flash an encapsulated firmware image, only the pure bios region. You will have access to the BIOS region for obvious reasons, but the second point can only be figured out by trying to flash a BIOS. If the tool comes up with an 'Error 28', download the attached 'prr' utility, as well as the DOS version of the flash tool. Put both on an USB drive which can boot DOS, boot from it and execute the prr.exe, if it manages to remove the protection on your system it will tell you 'ready to flash', in this case go ahead and directly flash with fpt, without rebooting before doing so. If prr can't remove the protection you're most likely out of luck, even though might be ways for certain systems, but the chances are pretty small. In order to flash a BIOS you will need to remove the capsule from the firmware image provided by your system manufacturer. You only want to update the bios. Then flash it by using this command: fptw64 -f FILE -bios (FILE stands for the image you want to flash) ***WARNING*** This tool is only for very advanced users. If you mess up it will override your BIOS without a warning or waiting for you to confirm. This means you can easily brick your system beyond any chance of recovery. You most likely don't need this tool. My BIOS mods which require this application for flashing will always come with a .bat file which will do the flashing for you. Again, for 99.9% of the users there's no need to mess with this. This version of the tool works only for 7 series chipsets. *InBeforeOmgMyYystemWontBootAnymore* The tool provided here by svl7 (prr2.exe and former prr.exe) may not be hosted anywhere outside of Tech|Inferno without the previous approval of the author.

See thread link below to learn which notebooks these bios files should be used with. Who this does NOT apply to: - If you are afraid to brick your notebook, this is NOT for you. There is always a possibility for errors and accidents to occur. - If you do not understand what any or most of these acronyms mean, this is NOT for you. You will probably find little use for the unlocked features and the potential for risk is much greater than the reward. Who this applies to: - If you have an understanding of most of this thread and are willing to learn, continue reading. - If you are an enthusiast who loves modding and overclocking and have experience with this field, continue reading. Features: So what are these features that MSI had locked out? A short list would include:* - XMP RAM support (Up to 2133Mhz) [Warning: 4 DIMMs at 1866Mhz(+) may not be stable, 2 DIMMs are stable at 2133Mhz]. - BCLK Overclocking (Up to 5%, your mileage may vary, no guarantees). - TPL limits unlocked (With the combination of ThrottleStop, CPU throttling can be overcome).

    My 680m isn't working due to a motherboard defect (Thanks, MSI, for not bothering to reply to two separate trouble tickets by two MSI owners with the same exact hardware problem) and I tried taking it out, but it causes the "100% fan deal", so I jyst popped it back in and disabled it in Windows, since I have Optimus. For you guys without Optimus, I'm not sure, MAYBE a fully opened up BIOS will give you the option to switch video adapter.
