    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.

    Dell has hidden a lot of options in the BIOS of the Alienware M17x R4, the modified BIOS versions here will show you all the hidden menus and allow you to further tweak your system and optimize its performance. Don't change anything you're not familiar with. There might be functions available which don't work on your system, so use this BIOS with care. It should only be used by advanced users. In case you mess up and your system refuses to boot after applying the changes you make, remove the AC adapter, battery and coin cell battery in order to clear the non-volatile ram of the BIOS. This should fix most issues. *********************** Instructions: If you're on A05 or an earlier version, you can flash the modified bios by simply using the InsydeFlash utility provided with the official bios update on the Dell support site. However, once you're on a version newer than A05, things get a bit more complicated. There are two options then: - Method 1: Revert to stock A05 or earlier by using the Insyde USB bios recovery method, and then flash the modified bios by using the official tools (InsydeFlash). - Method 2 (recommended): Flash the modified Bios from DOS by using the FPT tool: . Grab the DOS version of fpt for flashing, and my 'prr tool' to circumvent write protection.. Download a '[FPT]' labeled version of the unlocked BIOS. Put the DOS version of the flash tool on the root of the prepared USB stick (fpt.exe and fparts.txt), along with the prr.exe and the file you want to flash (plus the included flash.bat). . Restart the system and boot from your USB stick. Run prr.exe, then flash the bios by executing the flash.bat file. Wait until the tool completes the flash. If the verification is okay, reboot, else flash again.. Go to the bios, load the default settings and reboot. Done NOTE: The flashing from DOS as described above will only update the BIOS, not the rest of the firmware. Therefore I strongly advise you to first flash the stock version of the bios you want by using the official update provided by Dell, and once that's done you can go ahead and flash the modified version of your bios by following the instructions above.

    I don't know about the system shut-off issue but the M15x/M17x/M18x can power throttle with the 900 and 1000 series cards. The trick I was taught was to go into your unlocked BIOS and set the machine to iGFX and reboot, then go back into the BIOS and set it to SG/PEG again and reboot. This works for my M18x R2 with a 1070.

    Well I found a fix thanks to a better forum: Use one of the below (still use -6 option and first use --protectoff) NVIDIA NVFlash with Board Id Mismatch Disabled Download This is a patched version of NVIDIA's NVFlash. On Turing cards, NVFlash no longer allows overriding of the "board ID mismatch" message through comm NVIDIA NVFlash with Certificate Checks Bypassed Download This modified version of NVFlash lets you flash a modified BIOS to your NVIDIA graphics card.

    I have no idea how I'd even begin this, and I really hope it is not necessary. The 84.04.2F.00.79 VBIOS is the available one from techpowerup's collection The 84.04.67.00.11 VBIOS is the original from my Sager P870DM-G laptop with dual SLI GTX 980m Neither .rom has been altered by me at all.

    Also one of the two unknown devices is your free fall sensor I would guess. The order could be the cardreader. Right click on the devices and choose properties. Go to details and choose hardware ID. Copy the hardware ID and search on Google. Then you will know what they are.

    Hi RaZoRfi84, Thank you for responding. I'm not sure if it's a BIOS issue. Some threads say that it changes automatically to PEG mode when installing the 120Hz display. I saw PEG mode when I had the 7970m installed and integrated graphics activated but always got 8 beeps and no post when installing the new display. Yeah, and I also read that somebody said that this nVidia 1070 would require EDP but I suppose it's not true because I have it running with the stock 60Hz display. I tried disabling integrated graphics but I would get no post issue and would have to reset BIOS by removing the CMOS battery. I read that that's because you need Optimus with the nVidia GPUs because BIOS would not load without it. Which kind of makes sense. I tried changing the Active LFP setting in BIOS to EDP but would get no post issue. I think I tried everything described in these threads. But yeah, I can confirm that the 60Hz display works with a 1070 setup and I can't even get the 120Hz one to work. lol I think I got a good deal on it for $100 but it's just wasting away not being used. I will tinker a bit more in the future once I get everything else done. I will probably try again before I do the re-paste. It just sucks that I waiting to attempt to install it until the return date past because I was buying all the new components one at a time and wanted to do all of the upgrades all at once. I suppose something could be wrong with the display but I have no way of testing it. BTW, I'm using unlocked A14 BIOS. Thanks again, BludBubbles

    Hello, I would stay away from the 9900K CPU with a Gigabyte Z390 AORUS and the Asus Maximus XI Hero motherboard combo for the moment because there are many people having boot issues and with boards / CPUs dying on them with that combination. Asus Maximus XI Hero not booting Several Gigabyte Z390 AORUS boards and i9 CPUs failed https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/2203397-gigabyte-aorus-master-z390-boot-issues I'm not sure but this could be a firmware or even a hardware voltage controller issue. If the Gigabyte / Asus Z390 motherboards they have are running too high stock voltage for the i9 CPUs and they end up burning up somehow..

    The new leak of NVFlash version 5.513.0 with their new RTX GPU (Turing) support is now available in our download section. This includes support for NVIDIA's new RTX 2080 Ti, 2080 and 2070 desktop GPUs. As always, use caution when reading/writing vbios files as you can potentially brick your card and void your warranty.

    Asus G75VW - modified BIOS / VBIOS Here's a modified BIOS for the Asus G75VW. It enables some more options and settings in the BIOS setup. It also contains a tweaked VBIOS for the 660m. Detailed version information: mod02 'GHZ edition' - 660m 3d clocks at 1000MHz core - 670m @ 715/1650 (only in 'overclock edition') additional BIOS menus Pics of the most interesting BIOS settings (thanks @bobby7): Instructions: Download the BIOS you want to flash, as well as the flash tool (Win64). Put the modified BIOS (and included files) in the same folder as the flash tool . Make sure that your current BIOS version is the same as the one you want to flash. Then create a backup of your BIOS by executing the backup.bat file. . Download the 'G75VW-BiosFixer.zip, put it in the same folder as the flash too and run it. Follow the instructions on the screen, it will ask you for the BIOS backup you just created, as well as the modified BIOS file which you already downloaded. . If the tool doesn't come up with an error message, go ahead and flash the created file by executing the included flash.bat file. . Wait until the flashing is done, in case everything's okay you can reboot. NOTE: It's a good idea to go to load the default BIOS settings after flashing. Also I really recommend flashing the official version before applying the modified BIOS, as mentioned in the instructions. >>> Here's my donation link, if you like my mods feel free to buy me a beer <<< As always with such mods, use at your own risk.

    That magnet sensor (Hall Switch) isn't on the motherboard. It is on the function board with Mute botton, Wireless botton, Quickx botton, leds. There is 3.3v on LID_SW#_3_FNB if the lid is open.

    Sorry for asking a stupid question but what does the T1 mode mean? And is there a way to unlock full speed (well the normal 1600MHz) while using 8GB modules from bios?
