I thought I read somewhere on this forum that the hangs at startup were suspected to be caused by faulty and/or counterfeit 7260ac's from ebay. Is Windows recognizing it as a 7260ac when it does boot?

Well, I can tell you, my wifi card is not from ebay, and is a legit Intel Card. Everything is working, except sleep, and some boot problems. I would like to see this fixed...When it's possible offcourse;)

This is incredibly valuable information. Lenovo is going to take my Y500 (27th produced) and replace it with the Y510p. I find that there are fewer reported problems on the forums, but I have read that the Y510p has been throttled by Lenovo. I can't find any certain information, but based on what I've read about this modded BIOS I should be able to surpass Lenovo's measures. Two questions remain for me:

First, is it possible to raise the Fans speed?

Second, If I restore the Stock BIOS after I flash the modded one, can Lenovo tell the difference?

Thanks!

I have heard that there is a method of fixing wifi card id block (whitelist) by changing the cards id. Do you have any experience in that matter?

Tonight I guess.

Any news on this one yet? I just got my Y510 and am pretty excited to see what your MOD unlocks.

Of course I have to wait until I make 5 posts before I can even see the photos others have posted.

Me too, i also have a official Intel Card, and the some problems, but there is 1 thing i noticed, when i start without AC connected and connect it when booting windows, the problem does not occur most of the time.

Can anyone confirm this?

Is there a new update regarding the GPU voltage ?

Is there anyone overclock their GPU, mind to share their highest stable core and memory clock ?

This mod sounds really good, only concerned about the OC tag and this "VBIOS tweaked for more performance and better tuning possibilities". How does this vBios affect my 750m's if I flash it? It's enough hot already :D Does this mod affect the temperature? Also does it fix the windows 8.1 sli bug, or do i have to get the official fix from lenovo. If these already have been answered, then i'm sorry :) tried searching..

Does the newest version of bios support Intel 7260 ac? If so, how to upgrade to the newest version?

I dont think its possible to update the bios on the Lenovo Y510p, because when you go the driver site, it says thats it not needed to update the bios and you cant finde any bios for the Y510p on their site.

The bios have the windows license in it, so its not possible to get a bios from another person as he will be giving you his license.

My SLI is really sluggish for some reason in games like AC4. Like 30fps on the lowest setting with a lot of stuttering.

Will overclocking fix this?

Is there a way to only use intel 4600 with unlocked bios?

you can just use the nvida control panel and select the Intel HD 4600 preferred GPU

That only works when i pull the 750 sli out..... how do you select HD graphics when the 750 in. I'm not too found about having a huge hole in my laptop when i need the HD graphics

The switchable graphics don't work when you're using SLI - it's a limitation of Optimus.

Mine was doing the same thing.

Step 1: unpark your cores.

Step 2: make sure sli is enabled...stupid I know but if you installed new drivers it will disable.

Step 3: make sure physx particles is off

Step 4: turn some settings up. Fxaa, ssao, medium-high other settings. I think what's happening is you are getting poor GPU usage. Probably in the 30-40% range. Crank a couple of these settings up...reboot..try again.
