    Lenovo Y400 / Y500 - unlocked BIOS / wlan whitelist mod

    Where do I find the fix for WIndows 8.1 to overclock again? Updating broke the overclocking, could you help me maybe?

    Where do I find that? Could you direct me to a page as this thread is massive, or is there any search feature I can use? - - - Updated - - - Also, is it one of the ones on the first page of the thread? If so, which one?

    Lenovo Y400 / Y500 - unlocked BIOS / wlan whitelist mod

    So, I recently updated to Windows 8.1 and it messed up SLI and led me to have to do some searching online and find out that I had to flash the VBios with the fixed 8.1 bios from Lenovo, and after I did so, overclocking stopped working, one card overclocks, but the other doesn't. Could anyone help me please? If you need anymore info at from me, don't hesitate to ask

    I want to upgrade my i5 to I7 in my Y500. Do I need new motherboard?

    Hold up, so the cpu is socketed, I can just screw it out? Do I need to do something to the bios? - - - Updated - - - Also, do I need to disassemble the entire thing to get to the cpu?

    Y500 CPU Upgrade

    Okay, so I'm thinking about upgrading my cpu in my laptop in a year or so. I have a Y500 with a i5-3230M, and I want to put in an i7-3612QM because it's a quad core. I've looked and it's the same voltage as my current cpu, and the same socket. However, I want to know whether the cpu in the Y500 is socketed or soldered in, can I take it out safely and put a new cpu in? Also, if I do put in a new cpu, what do I have to do to accommodate it? Do I have to get a new bios? Also, can my motherboard support a cpu that draws 45W instead of 35W? There are Y500's with cpus that draw 45W, so will it work the same in my laptop? Thanks

    [GUIDE] NVIDIA VBIOS flashing

    So, I started the process for unlocking from square one, but when I open Insydeflash for the Y500 Bios 2.02 I get the error that says "Bios compare error".

    [GUIDE] NVIDIA VBIOS flashing

    Well, when I try to do it, I keep getting the same error "EEPROM not suppported" However, GPU #1 flashes fine without any problems whatsoever, I can't even turn off the EEPROM protection on GPU #0

    Nevermind, so I have two GPUs the index tells me their #s are 0 and 1, 1 flashes completely fine, but 0 keeps giving me an error that says "EEPROM not supported" despite the fact that the cards are Identical

    [GUIDE] NVIDIA VBIOS flashing

    Okay, it seems that I've done it, but for some reason MSI Afterburner won't let me turn up the clock speed more than 135 mhz. Is there a special process to overclocking?

    [GUIDE] NVIDIA VBIOS flashing

    Well, I can only seem to be able to flash one GPU, the other just gives me an error when I try to flash saying "EEPROM not supported" - - - Updated - - - I have GT 650M SLI if that helps.
