Preferred Solution: z500 advanced BIOS

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Helloto the point: i want to underclock the speed of memory from 1333 to 800. But to do that, i need to go into BIOS Advanced option (chipset) and here is the problem. There is no advanced option in my BIOS version 3.7 in my Z500 ideapad. Is there any chance of getting there ? Or this option is locked ?

Hi,for my Notebook itīs possible to get additional settings in the bios. But this is just possible by entering a special key combination.I did that months before, and it worked well. After entering the Bios I had to type 3 or 4 Keys together. After that, a additional menu appears and I was able to change the CPU settings and more.Sadly Iīve forgotten that combination, and I didnīt find it on the internet again. I think, that one of the Keys was the "Ins"-Button. Maybe "Shift" and "Strg" were also involved.So I hope for your expertise.Many greetings from EuropeHans Notebook: Lenovo G550Bios: Phoenix V2.51 (18CN42WW)

Question: Z500 - BIOS?

Hello, I have an issue starting up my Lenovo  Z500 after complete shut down. Keyboard light turns on as well as the fan when pushing the power button. The fan stops after two seconds. Then nothing happens for xxx minutes. xxx can be 2,20 or even 70 minutes. It is getting really hot meanwhile. Out of the sudden the "Lenovo" appears and Windows starts in a few seconds. When I do a restart Windows is back quickly. Boot time is 1,6 - 3,2 seconds.I have done a lot of tests and checks. Everything is fine. I also did a recovery to Windows 8 because I updated to 10. Left over is the Bios update. There is the 71CN44WW(V1.17) on my machine and Lenovo provide the update version 1.21.Can an old Bios version cause problems like this? Unfortunately I cant say what time the problems began. The notebook is now three years but it startet wihin the last month.I am looking forward to any idea and help!

Hello, several days ago i purchased the model IdeaPad Z500(Intel Core i5 i5-3230M 2600MHz/8192Mb/1000Gb) to make things clear i will explain in the steps my actions. first i eliminated all preinstalled os and other data on hdd, and switched to legacy mode. then i installed windows 8.1os.then i updated the functional key's patch (71CN51WW v1.21) ok, now most interesting:in BIOS Intel Virtual Technology [Disabled] - CPU-Z shows no VT-x peresence. then i enabled this option - so CPU-Z still shows no presence. then i goto Exit-> Load Default Settings (Load Optimal Defaults - Yes)now cpu reaches the 3.0+ ghz, but nowwhen Intel Virtual Technology [Disabled] - CPU-Z shows VT-x presence, and when [Enabled] - it shows no VT-x the primary problem is to launch VirtualBox with x64 guests with VT-x (or just x86 machines in multicore mode), and of course it cant do it without VTx (see the task manager's Virtualization status depending on bios VT switching). so VirtualBox cannot see this feature both Intel Virtual Technology enabled nor disabled and as i seen intel's manuals -  core i5 3230M is VTx enabledso what is the solution?  

Answer:Z500 corei5 VT-x bios bug or feature

Has anyone solved this issue? I need VirtualBox running on the machine, I have similar setup but with i7 processor.

I think the flash program used to update the bios will run properly under windows 8.1. Before you do the updating try to do a backup of your present bios so that you can always go back to it if you want to. See the picture below on how to do the backup and update of the bios.

I have a VN7-572G. The presented BIOS settings are sort of lackluster for a gaming laptop and I know what I'm doing enough to tinker with more advanced settings. I've examined the BIOS for this laptop and there are a ton of locked-away settings.

Hello! my problem started when i done a bios update installation. I already use a BIOS password. I do it but functions buttons be default and i cant Work with it.Unfortunately, during the update has been damaged password . I gave the computer to the servis but they told me that "they are there they can not remove the BIOS password". is really the only way out of my situation is replacing the entire motherboard and not the only one holding my password? Its a very problem for me but my hdd crash and for now i cant install any operation system.

Answer:lenovo z500 BIOS password problem

MB replacement is one option. Another is to have your bios reverse engineered (mod your bios). Reverse engineering is not allowed in the forum but there are other forum which deal with it so just use google to find them if you want.

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me. Tonight, when I turned on my laptop the screen seemed much dimmer than usual (even at start up), and once it had loaded I couldn't change the brightness no matter what. I tried using the buttons on the keyboard, and manually in windows, but it remained dim. I also tried on different power settings, but still nothing. I finally managed to turn it up by going into the BIOs and adjusting the brightness on that screen, but I still can't do anything once Windows 8 is loaded up. It was fine last night before I shutdown, and there were no major updates and I installed nothing new. I tried doing a system restore, but the problem still remains. Any ideas? I only got this 28 days ago, I really don't want to be having to send it away for repair already!  Oh, it's a regular Z500 btw, not one of the Touch ones.

Answer:Z500 Suddenly Can't Adjust Brightness Unless I Do it in BIOS

hi fudgestix,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums
 
Can you try to:
1. Boot into the BIOS load the default settings by pressing F9 then press F10 to save and exit.
2. In Windows, try to press F11/F12 to toggle the brightness. If same issue, uninstall Lenovo Energy Management under Control Panel > Programs and test.
3. If all works well, try to reinstall the software below and observe:

So I learned that Lenovo does not let you do sh*#& with the notebook you buy from them. my problem is as follows: my z500 came with a broadcom wifi card. this is no good, because it is not compatible with intels wireless display. solution would be installing a intel centrino card, the n2230 in particular, for which lenovo even offers drivers on the z500 support page. i bought one of these adapters on ebay, installed it and then my laptop produced an error: this card is invalid, remove it, otherwise the laptop will not boot. bios checks the wifi adapter against a whitelist. if the adapter is not on the list, the machine does not boot. what makes it really bad is that you cant buy a regular intel centrino n2230. you have to get one branded from lenovo.  can anyone tell me where i can get a lenovo branded n2230 wifi adapter? calling lenovo didn't help. they just said: can only sell you what was installed in your laptop when you bought it.  has anyone sucessfully removed or augmented the z500s bios whitelist? has anyone sucessfully rebranded an intel wifi card, so bios recognizes it as one on the whitelist?  any help is greatly appreciated.

I have a Ideapad z510.Does anyone know how I can update the BIOS so I can be able to access advanced options such as memory config, enabling turbo boost, overlocking, changing the boot order (HDD, CDROM, USB, etc) Currently the BIOS is a very simple and doens't give me advanced options and information.

Answer:Advanced BIOS Options

I'm wondering the same thing - different lenovo machine, though. I can't change most of the settings in my BIOS because I can't find the hotkey to open up the advanced tab. Really annoying.

Question: T510 Advanced Bios

HelloI want to enter Advanced Bios menu.How can i enter advanced bios menu in T510.Thanks your reply...

Answer:T510 Advanced Bios

Hi ilovethinkpad,

I don't own T510, however I don't believe there is such thing as Advanced BIOS menu in ThinkPads; at least not in those that I've used. What exactly will you be looking for in there if there was one? I mean which option?
 
If you're talking about only entering the BIOS, then this can be done by pressing F1 when the PC shows ThinkPad logo on boot.

Keep us informed.

Hello  Another user called stinger2k found the following with his Yoga 2 13 Bios V1.11 Hey guys,I found an undocumented function in our yogaīs (specially Yoga 2 13 & Pro) try this:hard reset the yoga (start a directx game and do that on load) --> pushing down the power key for less then 10 secondsthen push randomly and fast (very fast.. - because i donīt know the exact entrypoint for this) "FN+F2+R" (itīs a little bit tricky i tried this 1 - 3 times but the function is there...')Now you entered an undocumented Mode in Mainboard-BIOS with Tabīs shown on this video:https://www.dropbox.com/s/40uaa8iolbfku6j/20150128_194747.mp4?dl=0See under Advanced | Chipset Configuration | BIOS Lock --> which is enabled / you can disable it...Maybe anyone hereīs more skilled in bios modding, try to flash a whitelisted bios with this workaround... ^^ Hopefully... This enables Thermal Control!!! So you can maybe even turn your yoga into a fanless device and/or overclock (for undervolt see here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/undervolting-and-unleashing-the-thermal-headroom-in-the-yoga...). Sadly I could not reproduce this with my Yoga 2 13 (i3 4010u, Full HD) It only starts the normal bios...I tested it on Bios V1.11 and V1.15Maybe this only works on Yoga 2 13 with i5? Please try it and tell the others.

Answer:Yoga 2 13 Advanced Bios?

Stinger2k found more -appealing- options, that sadly nobody here was able to reproduce ...Let's hope someone will be able to prove we're wrong.I can't, as I have a different Insyde BIOS version,so  not 3.7  If you will forward this message to at least 10 persons you will receive a free iPhone8plus !

Hello;
 
I have a Lenovo Y510P
 
Specs are as follows:
 
Intel core i7 4700MQ 
Nvidia 755M SLI 2048mb x2
16GB Ram
1920x1080 Res
Windows 8.1
 
Now you can imagen this laptop gets quite hot.
 
Wouldn't be rather annoying if the fans inside the laptop was not running at there full potential when needed?
 
Well, when gaming id say the fans run at around 55-60% and the both GPU's hit 85-90c.
 
When i go into power managment and use "Dust removal" you an hear the fans run at full speed and it becomes quite loud and you can feel the air being pushes out.
 
This is what i want when i game, my laptop to be kept cool.
 
Now what i did was, start a game up, let the laptop go up to temperture, then quickly started dust removal and went back to the game, after 30 seconds, i checked the temperture and it had dropped from 89c down to 69-71c.
 
Been reading that Lenovo doesnt allow you to enter advanced settings in BIOS.
 
Can anybody help me with this?

Answer:Unlock Advanced Menu in Bios

I understand what you want to do, croaid.  But quite frankly, it isn't really our role to produce special tools to help people modify their systems to do something they were not designed to do.  There were a LOT of changes made in Win8 and Win10 and the devices (not just Acer's) that are designed for those OS versions are very often incompatible with going backwards to Win7.  Your best option is to return to Win8 or upgrade to the much improved Win10.  Sorry to disappoint you.

I usually never post but I cant find any info on the Advanced Menu in the BIOS. I do know it is there hidden. I removed my DVD drive and installed a second Hard Drive a few days ago and according to Intel the PM55 Chipset supports RAID. We all know it is not in the BIOS that we can see so I created a partition for Win 7 at 30 gigs and and then in Windows Stripped the rest. all worked great. Last night my Y550P went to sleep with my Palm Pre Pluged in and when i went to start it it could not find the boot partition. I know how to fix it. I pressing F2 must of did something else believe me I tried to repeat it but in the BIOS was an Advanced Menu,  OEM menu and another extra Menu with all kind of options. There it was the RAID option but I did not want to set it yet I wanted to fix windows first get some data off the stripped drive then I would set up the RAID. Wile I was in there I changed a few settings like enabling the IR port.  I could even turn usb ports on and off one by one. But now I can not get back in to see the extra menus. I cant figure out how I did it. Does anyone have any Ideas.

Answer:Advanced Help Needed with BIOS Update

I'm a software geek so I'm a bit out of depth with advanced hardware Dx, but a HW buddy of mine suggesting pulling the HD to verify the board....before doing so I swapped the RAM sticks (moved the original from bottom slot to top and new from top to bottom) and compressed air'd the entire section.

removed HD, blew out bay, and powered on. Displayed Compaq splash, auto refreshed to display splash again, auto refresh to solid black with rapid cursor at top left corner. Can hear and feel the fans spinning, but otherwise nothing. Does this confirm BIOS problem (as I suspected) or is it something else? (would call the buddy, but he's at the movies with his cell off :X)
edit: mep O_O f10 much? In BIOS with HD physically removed....factory is v F.14a, upgrade is v F.24a, right now it's showing v F.15 - now I really am lost.

Run this detector to determine if your laptop is capable and enabled: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=163321 If so, you should see this:  This is the result from my M5-581TG. I have no BIOS entry for Virtualization. I believe, on capable machines, this will be enabled by default as is the case on my M5. I believe the fan temperature/speed table is hardwired within the BIOS and cannot be adjusted.
