I will be trying this soon. I also had the misfortune of using the battery gauge recalibration software before becoming aware of it's potential for ultimate doom. I am hoping re-flashing the BIOS will fix whatever bug is preventing the motherboard from registering a plugged in power cable, without resetting everything over and over lol...

Hello everyone,

I'm new here in the forum and i don't speak english 100%, but i'll try.

I have a Lenovo Ideapad y500 gor about a year and i've been living a nightmare with it.

I found out the links to this modded Bios, but i'm not sure if i would be able to chance the wireless card after mod my bios... is that correct?

Still can't download the files, (i read the forum rules about it), but i don't know what to do anymore. I just can't work with this fantastic "Lenovo Offline Gamer Laptop" from hell.

I'm considering bring this peace of crap to the firing range and solve the problem there.:52_002::choler:

Thx in advance and sorry bout anything.

Simple question here.

Do I need to flash NVIDIA GeForce GT750M Second VGA BIOS Update for Windows 8.1 (64-bit) - IdeaPad Y400, Y500 after flashing this modded bios ?

Planning to go SLi after flashed the modded bios.

Yes, you'll have to flash ultrabay card just as well.

Also if you're planning to overclock cards - be warned that there's no modded BIOS for ultrabay card, so SLI will not work on windows 8.1.

dumb question but where do you find the updated stock bios? i am running 1.04 and i really would like to get on the latest version.

You just get it off the Lenovo website where you find the available software for your model.
