    Lenovo y510p SLI and Windows 7

    Hello everyone I bought my y510p a year ago and finally decided to replace the DVD drive with a second GT750M. The first thing I did once I got the laptop was installing windows 7 as I just can't stand 8. Now that I got the second GPU I looked for drivers and only found this NVIDIA GeForce GT750M Second VGA BIOS Update for Windows 8.1 (64-bit) - IdeaPad Y410p, Y510p - Lenovo Support (US) So I suck it up and install windows 8.1. After following the installing instructions I keep getting the "no nvidia display adapters found" error message. Meanwhile Windows 8.1 just doesnt click with me so I go back to windows 7 and square one... Is there a way to manually flash the BIOS into recognizing my second GT750M? Forgive my lack of technical terms as I am quite the layman. Thank you in advance, have a nice day
  2. you tried this one, right? NVIDIA GeForce GT750M Second VGA BIOS Update for Windows 8.1 (64-bit) - IdeaPad Y410p, Y510p - Lenovo Support (US) I tried it on windows 8.1 and it also didn't work. I saw an user in this forum who managed to have SLI on windows 7, I lost his track though...
  3. But I still have to flash the ultrabay, right? The laptop isn't recognizing the second GPU and Lenovo doesn't provide support for windows 7

    Do Gaming companies hate PCs?

    Ubisoft definitely does and I'll never play anything by them again.Their rehashed DRM ridden annual release games are pretty much cashcows. The scrapping of a feature of Watch Dogs was okay because "PC only, who cares".

    Witcher 3

    Witcher 1 is PC exclusive. CDPRed was working on "Witcher: The rise of the White Wolf" for consoles but it got scrapped, they almost folded after that. Witcher 2 was their first game on consoles and 3 will be the first on Playstation.
  7. Hello everyone Forgive me for the noob question as I am new here. I recently got a GT750M for my y510p ultrabay. The official BIOS flash from Lenovo doesn't work and I refuse to go back to Windows 8. Does this mod allow me to have SLI on Windows 7? Thank you
