@Klem I'll try this in a while, but where is the CMOS battery connector?, isn't the battery just soldered on the motherboard?

As first step you can try without disconnected CMOS battery. But if it doesn't work, then disconnect/desolder CMOS battery and try again.

Thanks, I'll try that then, but I'll not desolder the CMOS battery if it doesn't work as I don't have the tools or the skills to do that, and people already did that with no luck, as posted here:

EDIT: IT LIVES!

@Klem I followed your instructions (without the CMOS step) and it worked!, I don't have words to thank you, please send me a bitcoin wallet or paypal email through MP so I can send you a small donation, you deserve it.

I really think it should be a warning on the main post and your steps to unbrick the laptop because I didn't find any way to unbrick the laptop on the whole Internet.

You can use the Rufus program, instead HP USB Disk Format Tool.

This may be a bit off from the thread, but I was disappointed to see that I have to be an active member on the forum and promoted to download the file? That's a bit frustrating, especially since I upgraded my y510p to Win10 and it'll just stop recognizing my wireless card at random (the stock card doesn't have a Win10 Driver). I'm mostly just looking to get rid of that whitelist though I did upgrade my bios to v3.5 (just to get that out of the way). Any alternate downloads for your mod or should I just wait to get out of "pre-promotion"?

In HP USB Flash Disk is written: "Create a DOS startup disk using system files located at:" and it's a folder. But in Rufus there are only "FreeDOS, ISO Image and DD Image." If I create ISO with "win98_files" folder (using DaemonTools), Rufus writes "This image is either non-bootable, or it uses a boot or compression method that isn't supported by Rufus". Or I just should create a bootable disk using FreeDOS?

 So how should I use Rufus?

I have the Idepad Y510P model and I’d like to apply the BIOS mode in order to be able to change the problematic Wireless NIC.  The laptop came with Win 8.1 installed.  Will the new BIOS mod have any effect on the win8.1 Product Key hidden in the BIOS?

Thanks.

I think pifive posted success regarding your question on this tread on January 16, 2015.

I am trying to do the same thing.  Good luck for you!

So, I have been dealing with Bios issues for awhile now.

I have been getting errors 201 and 280 with FPTWT

 

Error 201: "cannot be run on the current platform.
Please contact your vendor."

 

Error 280: "Failed to disable write protection for the BIOS space!"

 

so I used FPT_Backup_95 instead and was able to get a .bin file however it also gave me error 26. 

 

Error 26: "The host CPU does not have read access to the target flash area. To enable read access for this operation you must modify the descriptor settings to give host access to this region."

 

So with the .bin file I got with FPT_Backup_95, I put it into the bios-fixer and it gave me no errors and I got a v305mod.bin without any problems. I'm just concerned that if I use the .bin I could brick my Y510p because of a problem with the .bin file because of error 26.

Anyone solutions?

If I uploaded my .bin file is it possible for someone to look at it and verify that it is not corrupt?

Thanks for posting all this! I was wondering if the download link to the drivers is broken? TechInferno is throwing an error when I try to hit download.

Who knows why I can't download the files?

May anyone upload the files into a netdisk or mailbox and share them to me?

If I don’t have and do not plan to have a secondary Graphics card installed, do I still have to utilize the vBios flash?  All what I have is the Intel and nVidia combo graphics that came with the laptop. 

Model: Y510P,

BIOS: 74CN44WW(V3.05)

Thank you.

I have the driver version 17.13.12.1 / 2014-12-16 for the Wireless-N 7260.  This driver (from Lenovo)  helps me to stay online without interruptions.  Speed varies, but for now it is OK as a temporary solution.  I can’t wait to flash the BIOS and install a new wireless card.

My System: IdePad Y510P

BIOS: 74CN44WW(V3.05)

OS:  Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Intel(R) Wireless-N 7260

Guys I seem to have bios v3.08 currently. Do I have to (and is it possible to) downgrade to v3.05 first in order to install this mod?

Also I cant download the files for some reason. Any mirror?

Guys I mine had 3.08, what I did was rolling back to 3.05 official then followed the guide. Now I've successfully flashed the modded bios (checked the bios options, insane stuff).
My question is is it mandatory to flash the vbios? I just checked NVIDIA panel and it seems my SLI is working just fine.

      I've been scouring the internet in search of anything regarding an updated bios for my Clevo P170SM. I have found many mentions of Prema Bios mods on various websites, but good luck trying to find actual download links. They all seem to vanish or have dead links. Wayback Machine doesn't help either and I was only able to find stock Clevo bios as early as 2015 via the WayBack Machine. If anybody has an updates Prema Bios or some other unlocked bios file for the P170SM, that would be fantastic! Otherwise, I might have to consider paying over $100 to Eurocom for their unlocked bios.
