Lenovo Y410p / Y510p - unlocked BIOS / wlan whitelist mod / vbios mod

Recommended Posts

OK so I end up with this:

qsMs0pH.jpg

I test a game for about 30 minutes (up to the red line) and this is the best I can get but only with the ultrabay GPU downvolted.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]12158[/ATTACH]

Can this make any damage to the GPU?, also the only way I find to apply those settings on boot is by creating a shortcut and execute it at boot.

CYGNUX, maybe you should try this mod. Y510p Ultimate Cooling Mods Revealed...Unshroud yo... - Lenovo Community This is what I do, and like I've been saying for a while, you have absolutely insane temperatures. Undervolting my Ultrabay GPU by -100mV while still keeping the same clocks, after an hour and a half of gaming under a cooling pad, my first gpu never went past 60*C, and my Ultrabay GPU never went past 68*C. I know that this is no cooling pad vs cooling pad, but a cooling pad won't make a 30+*C difference in temperatures. Take the cooling pad off since it restricts a lot of airflow, and then try gaming again.

In short term it will not damage in long term it may.

Do you use cooling pad? - It may reduce temperature by 5 to 7 celsius degrees.

My recommendation:

Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Three Configurable High Performance Fans - Black - Newegg.com

or

ZALMAN Notebook Cooler ZM-NC2000 Black - Newegg.com

Did you use premium (non metal) thermal compound for repaste?

Example:

GELID Solutions GC-Extreme Thermal Compound - Newegg.com

difference:

Note that thermal compound application method may result in different temperatures:

Thanks for the links, I'll try to get a cooling pad, for the compound I use a cheap one but was my only option and that one you recommend it's just toooooo expensive :(.

Interesting... I'm not so sure, cut the plastic is forever but 10*C less sounds good, in my case I don't think it will make so much difference as I don't have a cooling pad yet.

@CYGNUX Just to be certain, removing that plastic actually did lower your temps?

I didn't remove it because I saw that it has a hole in the center, so isn't touching the GPU.

GC Extreme 3,5g should be enough to repaste 10-12 processors.

other example Arctic Silver Ceramique 2 $4.99 for 2,7g

Arctic Silver CMQ2-2.7G Céramique 2 Tri-Linear Ceramic Thermal Compound - OEM - Newegg.com

So get a bit cheaper one look at few reputable compound tests. Just don't pick compound from the bottom of the charts.

How do you see this one?

Also I can't decide between those two cooling pads, which one do to recommend?

Looks like I messed up. I was trying to undervolt my system using the new 3.05 bios and now my system won't even turn on, no Lenovo logo, one key recovery button, nothing. I even did the bios reset thing by removing the battery and holding down the power button for 20 seconds. Any ideas on what I can do at this point?

can i control the fan speed by giving it like temperature threshold before it goes 100%? like on 70*C it will go 75% fan speed? after i unlocked the bios

You tried to undervolt the GPUs and now your computer won't turn on? o.O

I was using XTU to undervolt my CPU and iGPU before so I turned off the XTU and input the same settings in the bios and now it won't do anything. The fans turn on but that is about it.

I remember @allstone saying something along the lines of you can reset BIOS by removing the CMOS battery for almost half an hour before you put it back in. I wouldn't try it until he comes to this thread and confirms that though, I don't want to screw things up even more trying to remember something someone said.

EDIT: Found his post..

It should be packed bios CMOS battery. Is it movable at all? No damage by moving it except if it somehow non-movable. It must be packed in plastic as a lot of those batteries are. Note if you remove the battery, you must remove it for 20-30 minutes at least to reset BIOS.

I tried to get to the cmos battery but I couldn't get it open enough to get to it. It is sandwiched between the palm rest and the mobo.

Hm...Is there a way you can force the BIOS to update through USB maybe? Like creating some type of DOS boot up without being able to switch to Legacy in the boot options? Maybe you can take out the hard drive and have a bootable flash drive with some type of BIOS installation on the flash drive and maybe it would boot into that? I'm not sure, I'm really at a loss at this point. @octiceps, @ghoul, @unclewebb, get your butts in here.

You have to remove the keyboard bezel to get to the CMOS battery. Shouldn't be difficult if you've ever disassembled the laptop to repaste as it's only about halfway there in the sequence of steps.

The battery is on the underside of the mobo. See here:

Looks like the battey is soldered to the mobo :(

No going back now, I de-soldered the battery. Going to wait and hour before putting it back in.

As i know, some bioses write back settings to flash.

Open bios with tool, check for recovery file name, put it on pendrive, fn+esc, or fn+B start and pray...

The computer won't even boot so I doubt this will work. It also won't boot from a USB drive because of secure boot, no?

Nope, nothing. Used the stock bios from Lenovo, got the recovery name, renamed the stock bios and put it on a USB boot disk. Tried your key combos while booting and nothing.

Sorry to hear that. :( Never tried it out, hopefully never have to...

Possible B plan ,if this flash write thing is true, is do desolder bios chip, and externally program a new bios with default settings to it.

I'm not sure whether usb dvd drives are working during boot.

The recovery procedure doesn't work?.

Hi, which recovery procedure? thanks

This one if you are talking to me. I also tried holding down the windows key and B as per the instructions on the page.

Looks like I will bring it to a Lenovo certified repair place near my house on Monday and see what they can do for me.

Ask them for the recovery procedure, I'm positive that it is implemented, but they might have changed the key combo or whatever... Usually there's a way to reset the defaults with a simply procedure and even to re-flash the bios.

I think its a hardware error because I get to step 9. and the computer shuts down after a minute, drained the computers power by unplugging the battery and power adapter and holding down the power button for a good long 3 minutes too. nothing so far's worked. I will just have to deal with lenovo to fix it now

- - - Updated - - -

they recently fixed my laptop and replaced parts so who knows if those parts went bad or its another part

      Hello, I have several Lenovo L530 notebooks, but there is no wi-fi adapter inside. I tried to use my wi-fi adapters, but whti every adapter I have an error "1802 unauthorized network card is plugged in". I have already used all available wi-fi adapters, but no result. I really need professional help and I hope I find it here. As far as I understand there is a way to remove whitelist in BIOS, so here's the file with my BIOS dump.

      Hope you can help me with BIOS mod. Thanks in advance.

      i want to ask two favours and a question from this community ..
       
      1.) Can someone mod my 940 mx to increase the target temperature and allow higher overclocking than 135hzband voltage control
       
      2.) Allowing my i5 7200U to be undervolted to reduce overall heat 
       
      The question : I repasted my gpu and cpu cleaned it thoroughly, made sure twice everything is connected properly, use a cooling pad and yet the upper portion of my chasis above f1-f12 keys is so hot that i can roast peanuts on it. 
       
      (if i left out any info or missed something please reply i would really love to have a page that has everything for people who have this laptop specifically for light gaming.)

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo ThinkPad L440.
      If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden additional menus and settings in bios setup menu, then you can post your request in this thread.
      Important!
      For creating bios backup and to flash bios mod, you must use any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip!
       
      Just dump your Bios using any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip, then post it in this thread or upload it to any fileserver and send me the link.
