CEM_JONES posted a topic in LenovoHi guys, i am a user of a Lenovo Y580 with GTX 660m and the i5 CPU. My current bios version is: 5DCN89WW(8.0), release date: 23.08.2012. Iam from Germany. Pls can anyone explaine me which bios i must take to unlock my gtx660m? Svl7 posted two versions, in one hand the version 2.07(5DCN40WW) and in the other hand the Version 8.00(5DCN90WW), which one is the right one? I don´t want to brick my notebook The "5DCN" is not the same one... And i have another question too, when i try to download the attached files from the "Lenovo Y580 / Y480 'unlocked' BIOS versions" for example Svl7 Lenovo Y580 - Y480 BIOS v8.00 (5DCN90WW) - Mod.zip then come a vBullentin Message that i have no permissions to do this action ?! So please help me Thanks a lot. and sry for my bad englisch ) EDIT: So i was able to download the files, in the discribtion my bios was listetd, i flash it successful and it works fine! Big thanks to svl7! for this great work. A little bit strange is my current gpu clock under nvidiaInspector, it tells me 885 mhz, default gpu clock 1000. When i try to force the pstate of 0,5 = 5 and unlock the max clock and try to fix gpu for example at 1200 mhz it dont work, the current clock still stay at 885Mhz. So i think the Nvidia Forceware limit the clock in their new drivers?
EvanCarroll posted a topic in LenovoI created a petition last night to protest the vendor lockin imposed by Lenovo. As many of us know all too well, they whitelist their miniPCI-e cards and impose this whitelist at the bios level. Please show your support, and let's see if and how Lenovo reacts, https://www.change.org/petitions/lenovo-release-an-unencumbered-version-of-the-bios
