  1. 2 options.

    Does pressing F8 post lenovo Bios screen pull up any boot options e.g. Boot Windows in safe mode etc?

    If you cannot do this the second option as follows:

    Is your thesis on a another partition excluding C:\ e.g where Windows is installed.

    If yes then:

    Chapter 3

    If no then:

    Get someone to remove the harddrive. Boot on another machine with your h/drive connected so you can ready the h/drive and copy the thesis on to a USB.

    Then

    Hope that helps.


  2. I've removed the metal mesh from my Y500. This with the combination of IdeaFan that's an awesome piece of software and a cooling pad I see a good reduction on temp for both the CPU and GPU's. Playing games that utilise c.95+% gpu power I was hitting the GPU threshold on the non sli card and was temp downclocked to 790 from 1150mhz automactically. It now never drops from 1150.

    Is there a version of this where the fans will turn on in a constant full speed without slowing down? Thanks for such a program!

    Unfortunately not chap, credit to the OP for creating this app though.

  4. 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


  5. Will heat not be an issued. The OEM heatsink/fan would have been compliant with the OEM processor. It should work however as the heatsink is shared with the GPU you may notice that your GPU is throttled in games etc.


  6. Hi

    I created an account on this forum and would like to download files with the mod BIOS. Can somebody send me this files? I do not know Englisch language very well and I have troubles with writting posts. Thank you for your help

    You have to have 5 posts before downloading the files or pay to be a subscriber.

    However you do not need to modify the BIOS to overclock the GPU(s). This can be achieved with Nvidia Inspector, please see this thread.

    Y500 GT650M Overclock

    Hope this helps.


  7. Hyperthreading can be disabled through the OS, and renabled subsequently by reversing the change outlined in the following proceedure.

    Start > type "msconfig" > Press "enter"

    Go to "Boot" tab

    Click "Advanced Options"

    Check "Number of processors" and set the value to 4.

    Next time you restart your machine, windows will only recognize 4 cores. These 4 cores will be the physical ones, instead of 2 physical cores with 2 threads each. Therefore you will have the same experience as if you disabled hyperthreading from BIOS.

    Found this on the Lenova Community page hope it helps.

    This is not the case, this will be the former 2 cores 4 logical processors see below with Number of processors set to 4. 2 Cores 4 logical processors .

    You need to unlock the BIOS and disable it that way. As below H/T disabled 4 cores/logical processors

  8. If nothing helps you can try to remove and reseat the CMOS battery located somewhere on your motherboard. This will roll back the BIOS back to it's factory settings. (don't forget to kill all power to the computer.)

    Do a quick google search on your laptop model to see how to access the battery and you should be set.

    No it will not. This will reset, but not correct a borked write.
