  1. Y510p Ultrabay Graphics card

    I have designed an adapter for the ultrabay slot to plug desktop graphic cards into a Y510p. The BIOS starts with "Unauthorized Slave vga ...". Need help for a new BIOS without PCIe check on Ultrabay.
  2. For those who don't like the restrictions Lenovo put on their system, here's a BIOS mod that will get you back at least some of the freedom you should have over your own hardware. Features: WLAN card whitelist removed, any (hardware-wise compatible) card should now work hidden BIOS menus unlocked VBIOS tweaked for more performance and better tuning possibilities Keep in mind that not necessarily all of the BIOS options available with this mod will be fully functional, so use the new available settings with care. If you're unsure about something don't change it and ask here, someone might be able to help. Available for v1.07 / v1.09 / v1.10 and v3.05. v2.04 and v2.07 added (only whitelist removal as for now) If you have a different BIOS (or more specific, a BIOS newer than 3.05) I will need a copy of it in order to make it work for your system. Instructions for flashing the modified BIOS v3.05: You need a USB stick prepared to run DOS, here is a guide you can follow in case you don't know how to do this: Guide by @StamatisX - thanks! >>> Before continuing make sure the AC adapter is connected to your laptop and your battery has at least 20% charge remaining. <<< (0) - NOTE: This step is Only necessary if your system isn't already using BIOS v3.05 Update to the official v3.05 BIOS provided by Lenovo . (1) - Create a backup of your own BIOS (now v3.05) by using Fptw64 tool. Extract the files and run the included .bat file from an admin command prompt. . (2) - Download Lenovo_Y510p-Y410p_[v3.05]_modified.zip and put the files of folder [1] to the root of your prepared USB DOS stick. Let the BiosFixer prepare your BIOS for flashing by drag and dropping your backup file on it. Put the created "v305mod.bin" file to the root of your USB DOS drive as well. . (3) - Now you need to downgrade the firmware back to v2.07 (Y510p-Y410p_v207_[stock].zip) in order to flash the mod. . (4) - Boot from your USB DOS drive, when you see the command prompt type BIOS and hit enter. Wait until the BIOS is flashed (you can safely ignore warnings about non-existing regions). . (5) - Once the BIOS flash completed with no errors, type EC and hit enter. Wait until the EC is flashed. Then reboot. . (6) - Go to the BIOS setup menu, load the default settings, apply and reboot. Done. In case you're using an ultra bay GPU follow the instructions in post #2 and flash the vbios.. NOTE: It's crucial that you flash both, BIOS and EC. Having different EC and BIOS versions can in certain situations lead to issues. IMPORTANT: If you want to go back to stock v3.05 you can do that easily by simply using the official update from Lenovo. That's it, nothing additional required in this case. Old instructions for users with v1.07 / v1.09 / v1.10 or v2.04 / v2.07 who for some reasons don't want to update to v3.05: Video walk-through of bios settings (thanks @allstone): My donation link in case you want to buy me a beer Download link for files referenced in this post:
  3. Y510p RAM upgrading

    Does anyone know if I can smack 2x16gb(32gb) ddr3l sodimm into the y510p without issue? Yes the documentation states it's upgradable to 16gb maximum, but surely that's bs, I mean the 4700Mq is capable of 32gb RAM so what's the problem? I read some speculation online on various forums, but can anyone confirm it is possible? I'm just scared to buy the RAM if it's not going to work. Thanks InB4 "you don't need that much RAM" I do.
  4. Hey guys, This is a thread for sharing what you have learned about configuring a graphics card using Gerald's Y510p Ultrabay Graphics Adapter. It was created to make it easier for new users to find the information they need to successfully configure and use the adapter on their computer. I consulted Gerald before creating this thread. Please feel free to post information, insights and tips below. The Y510P Graphics Adapter What is it? The Y510P Graphics Adapter is a card which will allow you to use a full-length PCIe desktop graphics card with a Lenovo Y410p or Y510p laptop. It plugs into the device's Ultrabay. This is the swappable device bay which is, for instance, used for the second NVIDIA card in Y510P SLI configurations. Please be aware that the Y510P Graphics Card is only compatible with the Y410p and Y510p. It is not compatible, then, with the Y500 and other Lenovo or IBM laptops that feature an Ultrabay. The Y510P Graphics Card was developed by Gerald, a member of this forum. What it needs to run - hardware In addition to the Y410p/Y510p laptop itself, the Y510P Graphics Adapter requires a separate power supply unit (known also as a PSU) to provide the graphics card with electricity. An actual PCIe graphics card is, of course, also required. Please note that only AMD graphics cards will work, seemingly because features of the Y510P embedded controller prevent NVIDIA cards from working as intended. If you are going to use the power supply unit to power the Graphics Adapter and the graphics card plugged into it only, a 450-watt unit should suffice, at least for current graphics cards. While graphics cards manufacturers may advise you to obtain a more powerful PSU, this is because the PSU would normally also be used to power other components, such as the hard drive and CPU. Note that the Radeon RX Vega 64 and R9 Fury X are exceptions to this rule, as they have been shown to draw close to 500 watts of power when they are under a lot of strain. What it needs to run - software Three versions of the Y510P Graphics Adapter exist: * Version 1: this is the experimental version which Gerald originally posted about. * Version 2: this is the version that Gerald sold in 2016 and part of 2017. It requires BIOS version 2.07 and Windows 10 to function. Earlier BIOS versions may also work. * Version 3: this is the version Gerald is selling at the moment of writing. Thanks to a discovery first posted to the forums by user David 'Soap' Washington, it should work with any BIOS version. It may also work Windows 7, 8 and 8.1, in addition to Windows 10. I am currently using this version of the adapter with Windows 10, using BIOS version 3.07. Videos on installing and using the Y510P Graphics Adapter * Installing the adapter: - By Tesla: a general introduction on Version 2 of the adapter and how to install it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KL7muHXsAmI - By ManyStrongWords/Go'Vic Gaming: a video on installing Version 2 of the adapter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pviqwFRDn4 * Gameplay/performance: - By Tesla: using an AMD RX 470 with the adapter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqdDeZ0UCgc - By me: using an AMD Vega 56 with the adapter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVbsib8eHRg&t=25s Other useful videos * Removing the Y510P Ultrabay, by Someone7089: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYcVlaMV0Ig Example of a configuration using the adapter My own configuration consists of the following: * Lenovo Y510P with an Intel Core i7-4700MQ CPU, 16 GB RAM and an Intel SSD hard drive; * iiyama G-Master GB2888UHSU 4K monitor; * Gerald's Ultrabay Graphics Adapter, version 3; * AMD RX Vega 56 graphics card; * Corsair 450W PSU; * OS: Windows 10 Creators' Update. In order to get this configuration to run well on an existing Windows 10 Creators Update install, I had to do the following: * Run the monitor at its native resolution. It appears that the current drivers for this card have difficulty repeatedly switching between resolutions. * Install the appropriate driver for the monitor, instead of the generic one provided by Microsoft. * Disable both the NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M and the Intel HD Graphics 4600 display adapters in the device manager. Note 1: removing the drivers for your Intel and NVIDIA display adapters is unnecessary. It is also likely to be futile as, ultimately, Windows may reinstall the driver even if you disable automatic driver updates. Note 2: an HDMI connection with your monitor should work just fine without you disabling the Intel HD Graphics 4600. A Displayport connection, however, will probably only work as intended if you do disable the Intel display adapter. If you do not do this, Windows will completely duplicate the video output displayed on the internal monitor on the external monitor, including the internal monitor's resolution. Note that this is not the ordinary 'duplicate screens' feature as there is no way to disable it until the Intal graphics adapter is disabled. A Displayport connection is generally preferable since most Freesync-capable monitors do not support Freesync over HDMI. Also, AMD cards usually do not output colour depths over 8bpc over HDMI connections. Note 3: should you find that the backlighting of the internal monitor remains on even though only the external monitor is active, all you have to do is press the FN and F2 keys at the same time. This will switch off the internal monitor. The above instructions may no longer apply. When I installed a fresh copy of the Fall Creators Update, Windows automatically recognised my hardware, monitor included, and I did not have to disable the other graphics adapters.
  5. Hi, I changed my original wlan card in my Y510P notebook to an Intel AC7260 card. The WIFI is working well BUT the Win7 couldn't install the bluetooth driver. It couldn't recognize the bluetooth modul. Does anyone have idea to solve this problem?
  6. Hello everybody. Ive got 2 jack 3.5 ports. Microphone and for headphones. A few month ago i damaged headphone output(just my mistake) and now it doesnt work. Laptop doesnt see connected headphones to headphone port. On my computer, i can use any port on sound card as microphone or speaker or line in. In realtek manager i can just switch. But here i cant. I downloaded old drivers from lenovo website, because on newer one, i cant run realtek manager. On microphone port i can only switch between Line In or Microphone. I dont see headphone option. Is it possible to do it?
  7. Lenovo y510p self soldered m.2 slot

    Hi guys I soldered m.2 slot as my y510p didn't have one. I installed ssd drive but my bios and system does not see it. Is it only bios (I have stock rev. 3.07 locked) related issue, or could it by something else I need to do to get my ssd to work?
  8. The lenovo y510p has no thunderbolt or express card but it does come with their own ultrabay technology by which you can add another graphics card inside a socket which hold in place of the DVD drive once you take it out. Apparently the ultrabay is a pcie 3 implementation. So I was thinking if its possible to DIY eGPU. I think besides the basic setup of eGPU one might need a specialized connector for the Ultrabay. Has anyone done it. Can anyone guide me to DIY?
  9. Lately I've been thinking about buying an eGPU for my Lenovo Y510p laptop. I've seen products like this, and for my laptop it's not really viable. since I lose my network card. And I've would have to remove the SD-Card slot, and I kind of need it. So after some search, my question is: does a mini pcie to USB Type-C adapter exist? So I could use it for a GPU, wireless USB....
  10. Title. I'm experiencing a few problems including P-state drops when playing mid game and it really hurts my FPS. Thanks in advance. (Y510P SLI 755m) EDIT: I'm on Windows 10
  11. Hi! edit: merged with Conscriptvirus's post so it's easier to follow: This modification is very dangerous, can lead to broken chips. Don't say i didn't warned you... edit: he's right, it is easy Lenovo did a sloppy job with cooler, too much thermal paste, weak springs, overheating and throttling machines... First of all, disassemble the machine. Then do a repaste, with bare minimum amount of thermal paste, and remove cooler again, check thermal paste spread. Remove screws from cooler, by removing little plastik washers, keeping the screws to fall out. My gpu heatsink was not paralllel to motherboard, so the corner without screw was slightly bended upwards. Twist the gpu heatsink, so that corner is pushing gap pad a little bit harder. Be very gentle, you dont want to broke your heatsink. You can check level by putting your heatsink on flat surface with gpu screws removed, cpu screws stays in place for now. Then place a 0,5mm spacer under the spring like seen on the following pictures These are screw number 4 and 5. Screw number 6 is using a weak spring, so use double spacer, or change it to a stronger spring: Put back plastik spacer, so screw stay in place. Do the same process with cpu heatsink. You can do this to ultrabay as well, but take extra caution, since there is no backplate, and it can lead to warped/broken board. Lastly change the gap pad over cpu vrm area, because it is too tick, I used 0,5mm piece: Aaand it's done! Put back heatsink, use as little amount of thermal paste as possible, and enjoy 10-15+ lower temperatures. Spacers was lying around, i had the spring from some old heatsink, so dont have exact types and diameters, but Conscriptvirus did the mod also, his mod is better to look at, spacer perfectly fit into heatsink holes edit: I also did cpu mod, ended up adding a washer to screw 6, despite of changed spring, gained 1C-3C. I can run XTU stress test under 85C with -95mV and 3,4Ghz 4core. GPU and CPU idle is under 50, without notebook stand with fans. Thanks to Conscriptvirus for his effort and pictures. If it worth to be sticky, Mods, please make it one. Regards
  12. Need Help Flashing Second GPU

    Hey guys just bought a Lenovo Y510P about 2 weeks ago and I still haven't been able to enjoy it without getting a fire extinguisher ready So I have been reading about its faults and what I can do to help ease them. So far it's been a education. I have the 3.05 mod bios, spring mod, new thermal pads, paste and cut holes for the fans. The thing I am trying to figure out is I can see if gpu-z that one of my GPUS have the [MODDED] next where is says the bios version. Can't distinguish weather its the built in GPU or ultra bay. My money is on the one thats built in. So with that said (might get corrected) but lets say all thats left is to flash and mod the bios on the ultra bay gpu. When I try to save my bios in GPU-Z I get an error with some research its a mobile gpu and thus wont save my bios. I am a little confused on the instructions on how to flash that gpu's bios and what steps I need to take in order to under-volt them. I am able to under-volt one of them assuming its the one that says modded next to it. I am a complete noob when it comes to this stuff but charting into unknown territory is well...lets just say challenging. If someone can please give me a detailed guide on what do to I would really appreciate it. Thanks. Joe.
  13. Lenovo Y510P CPU Upgrade

    Hi everybody! I am also the owner y510p like many of you! Some time ago I decided to upgrade the CPU, and after a long search found references to authentic information that help you to upgrade to Intel® Core ™ i7-4910MQ Processor (8M Cache, up to 3.90 GHz). Previously, I had a Intel® Core ™ i7-4700MQ Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.40 GHz). I have not conducted specific tests, but on the whole system more responsive. If someone is interested in information about the final performance - write in the comments and I'll try your test. Have you changed your CPU? If you have changed, on what CPU? I wish you all a good day! My setup: GeForce GT 755M SLI Intel® Core ™ i7-4910MQ Processor 16gb RAM (DDR3-1600 Kingston 11-11-11-28) 240gb SSD Kingston SH103S3240G 256gb SSD Transcend TS256GMTS400 (m2)
  14. Because I was in need of free USB ports (especially for Bluetooth after Wifi card change) I started DIY work on adding internal USB hub. I wasn't able to found any free USB head on board so I decided to adopt USB-2.0 port on Audio jack board. This was successfull and my Y510p has now 3 more internal USB ports (fourth port is connected out to external USB - except power which is lead directly to allow power-off charging, of course). As usb hub I used mini octopuss hub type, the output cables pretty fitted to free room around HDD and under mPCI slot. On one cable is connected mini bluetooth 4.0 module, on second mini micro-SD reader (for fail-safe and system repair and recovery, including gparted live distro) and one cable is left free, ending just beside mPCI slot. I plan to use it eventually for usb wifi mini-dongle replacing PCI wifi card thus freeing mPCIe slot. The free slot will be then available for PCI riser with external graphics etc. ... If somebody is interested, I'm ready to upload complete and detailed photo story
  15. Hello, I own a Lenovo Y510p with a GT755M SLI configuration (which almost always overheats/crashes for games that DO support them) and i plan to set up an eGPU for it. I've done a considerable amount of research on the topic but there are still doubts to ascertain before moving on. 1) Is it possible for the latest series of GPUs (GTX 1070, GTX 1080) from Nvidia to be used as an eGPU? Those who've already tried it used stuff like the Razer Core or it's other branded equivalent. What I'm looking for is the complete DIY version using the EXP GDC V8 connected to the mPCIE underneath the laptop (the one which the wifi card uses). I am aware of the Thunderbolt tests on Macs but I'm curious about it's performance on the mPCIE. And would it be compatible with the mPCIE adapter? Would it be too "new" for my laptop bought in 2014? 2) If it is possible, would it be worth it? Would the bottle-necking of the mPCIE be enough to diminish its worth? I wouldn't want to go for the GTX 970 or GTX 980 because my long term plan would be to use the GTX 1070 on a desktop set up once I settle down. (I'm a travelling student btw) Thanks in advance.
  16. Hello guys , After modding my bios with svl7's mod to my y510p with gt755m, everything went fine except one thing.My default gpu's core clock shows 1098 and the ultrabay gpu's core clock shows 980.Also range of overcloking is wider on the default gpu than its on the ultrabayed one.I have done that nvflash thing on the second post either.I hope you can make me understand the reason behind this and help me solve the problem.
  17. Y510P - USB not showing up in BIOS

    Hi guys! So recently, I've been trying to make the BIOS Whitelist mod by svl7 work, because I really need to downvolt my GPU's but nVidia Inspector just won't let me. I've been able to follow the steps correctly until I reached the step where you were required to boot up the modded BIOS using a formatted USB. The problem was that the USB didn't show up in the BIOS and boot options, even though I formatted the USB correctly to FAT32. Also, I'm running Windows 10, if that helps. Anyone know why this is? If so, please help me. Thanks
  18. Hey guys! Earlier this week I upgrade my laptop with a new network card. I bought a Intel WiFi AC 7260 for my Lenovo Y510p. So most of you probably know, Lenovo's BIOS has a whitelist. So I flashed the BIOS so that I could use the new network card. This happened without any problems, I installed the network card and booted my laptop. Drivers worked the moment I logged in and connecting to a network was easy and fast. Checked speedtest.net for the up and down speeds, perfect! There is a problem I encounterd though, it has nothing to do with my BIOS (I think) or my new network card. It has something to do with my GPU's. I run an SLI configuration of 2 x Nvidia GeForce GT755m. (one main, one ultrabay) I was following a guide made by @svl7 about flashing the BIOS. After the part of flashing the BIOS there was something about flashing the vBIOS too, because if you are running 2 GPU's it was not going to work properly. When flashing the vBIOS I encountered the problem. As explained by the guide, I used NVflash to flash vBIOS, when using the command "nvflash -a" to view adapters and their "index" they were on "0" and "1". I tried to flash both of them, "1" flashed easily without any problems, "0" did not flash at all. Now the error displayed was: "ERROR: GPU NOT DETECTED." Has anyone got an idea of how to fix this? I'm not able to flash one of the GPU's. If I play a videogame on my laptop, every now and then (intervals of 1-5 minutes) my screen goes black, audio stutters and comes back to normal after a few seconds. Hope you guys can help me out! If there's any info you need let me know and I'll edit the post!

  20. Hello to all my first post here ! I am thinking of buying a Lenovo Y510p (non-sli) with 755m. The price is 650Euros (all expences taxes shipping is included), about 880USDollars. https://www.computeruniverse.net/en/products/90532017/lenovo-ideapad-y510p-59400122.asp I already have a Samsung 840Pro 256GB and one extra DDR3L 4GB to upgrade it. Should I look for something different or is it a good buy for the money. Sorry for my bad english, I am from Greece.
  21. I have a Lenovo y510p laptop (750m sli) with windows 8.1 operation system and 8gb ram. (vbios updated). Maybe a year ago -when I had windows 7- it started to freeze (black screen) when I play games with SLI and I had to manual restart the computer. Now I have windows 8.1 operation system but the problem is the same, only the game stops with error message and the realtek driver says that "A jack has been plugged in" (??). I also have a problem with the sound system. Sometimes the left speaker is quieter then the right one and if I increase the volume to maximum then back, it works well again. (windows 7, 8, ubuntu) I have 170W adapter so it can't cause the problem. Yesterday I update the system bios from 3.05 to 3.08 and the the sli problem is nearly gone. The game sometimes start fps drop (and I hear the gpu fan go down) but it isn't crash or freeze. The sound problem has not appeard since. I wanted to bring back it to the lenovo service but I don't know what to do now. Does anybody have a changelog for the system bios update since 3.05?
  22. Re-pasting y510p

    For people that have experience in re-pasting CPU, GPU + ultrabay GPU in y510p to give some more info: What paste have you used? What are expected gains in re-pasting(temps)? Is it hard to get to the CPU/GPU/ultrabay GPU? Thank you! P.S. I am planing to follow the instructions in: .
  23. Y510p Acting Strange

    So I have a Lenovo Y510p with the dual 750 graphics and the i7 4700. When I try to play SWTOR, it bogs down heavily. I did a bunch of looking around trying to find an answer to what is causing it, and I think I have found out the problem, but I'm not sure what is causing it or how to fix it. I noticed that in the Task Manager it is only showing 1 logical processor, and 1 core. I also downloaded the intel diagnostic tool and it showed the same thing. I have tried checking the bios settings to see if that would make a difference, as well as upgrading the bios to the latest one that came out yesterday (3.08) If anyone has seen this problem, or has any ideas I would greatly appreciate the feedback. I'm not certain when exactly the problem started as I hadn't played in like 5 months do to school work, but the computer seems to be working just fine in every other respect. Thanks
  24. y510 never shows second 750m

    I have been trying to find a solution to this problem everywhere.. I have a Lenovo Y510p, with the 750m and i bought seperately a GT750m5 for the ultrabay in around November of 2013. I thought it would be nice and easy to get both of the cards to function as SLI. If I go into device manager it shows 1 integrated, 1 750m, and nothing else under display drivers. I tried a bunch of random shit to get the 750m5 to work including upgrading my bios to 3.05..... Now when I put the gt750m5 and power on the computer it tells me an unauthorized product is in, to remove it and restart. I would like to either have an older version of the bios (please god someone have it) or find a fix to allow the gt750m5 to be installed, and to WORK as SLI like intended with the ultrabay. I am praying to the computer gods on this one. I broke down and called Lenovo support yesterday and since my computer ran out of warranty while i was deployed to kuwait they might make me pay for a fix. I did wait quite a long time to call them because I am a COMM guy and it hurts my pride to admit i need help.They assigned me a case number and said i would receive a call within the next 72 hours with a decision on if they will pay to fix my computer for me. I explained that it has NEVER worked as advertised and it is a known issue in the Lenovo world that the machines that werent SLI complete when they were sold dont ever work the right way. She said she didnt think it was and i assured her it is, at which point i was placed on an extensive hold and she came back with the case #. Has anybody else had any experience dealing with this and if so have you been able to get it working? Thank you all for your time.
  25. Hello, im new guy on the forum with Lenovo Y510P. Windows upgraded into 8.1, and everything in this laptop was great, until someday when i turned it off. My next turn on was with the blue screen and the message: Recovery Your PC needs to be repaired The boot configuration data file is missing some required information. File:\BCD Error Code:0xc000000d "You'll need to use recovery tools on your instalation media." I dont have any recovery Tools. I bought this laptop with windows 8, so i dont have any cd and the stickers with serial key on it. I have the warranty still on it, but when i called into the shop where i bought it, they told me that it will be 100% format of the hard drive wich i believe (and i hope becouse of my data wich i cannot lose!) isnt needded. I cannot take out the hard drive becouse of my warranty stickers on screws. The things that i have done: I have borrowed from my friend windows 8 CD then i runned automatic sysem repair wich didnt worked. Then i run the terminal where i used the "bootrec - rebuild bcd" command. wich didnt works becouse of somekind of failiure of the finding bcd file. Next step was checking sata controller mode becouse i've read somewhere that if it isnt on ahci mode it can make problems like this, but it didnt worked also. Right now i've joined also this forum becouse i found some thread up here, where i can download the recovery media for the lenovo. (But yet i cannot do that becouse of my number of the post). In meantime i found somwhere else two Lenovo recovery torrents wich i am actually waiting for. Any ideas how to fix this problem? I cannot lose my data on the laptop. I have files on partitions d and e. Windows was on c but the service guy said that he will have to make full format becouse it is posobility that windows will require full format of hard drive. If you have any other questions i will reply but it can takes time becouse of my job. (i dont have always possibility to anserw, but i will watch the thread). Best wishes!
