Lenovo X250 Advanced Bios settings

Q: Lenovo X250 Advanced Bios settings

Hey guys, I recently dumped my BIOS with the "Universal BIOS Backup Toolkit" in search for changing a DVMT value and I noticed something very curious. If you use a program called "UEFITool" to open the BIOS you dump on this laptop, and CTRL+F "DVMT" under text, it will bring you to a section named "PlatformHiiAdvancedDxe". Upon extracting the body of the PE32 image, I noticed that there appears to be a hidden tab in the BIOS named "Advanced" with several useful settings. Here are a couple snippets: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyone know what I should do to enable this? Thanks!

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.)

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. Unfortunately, there is some sort of BIOS security implemented that prevents me from just flashing a modified BIOS onto this laptop. Is there perhaps some sort of way to officially access more advanced settings or any way of requesting one from Acer?

Hello everyone,So, here is the problem: I accidentally activated Advanced tab in BIOS which hasn't been there before by pressing some random keys just to enter BIOS setup and I don't know which key apart F2 I pressed. Ofcourse the Advanced tab isn't there anymore after changing some stuff that I shouldn't have (disabled Hyper-Threading for some experiments and some other minor options which I want to change back to how it was). I was wondering if anyone knows how to access the Advanced tab in BIOS with a key combination or atleast put me on a good path on how to mod my BIOS (InsydeH20)? Thank you.

My W540 has Nvidia KM2100 graphics card. I have a dock, so, to enable Nvidia KM2100 for external monitors connected to the dock, I changed Video Settings in BIOS from "Standard" to "Advanced".  Then, strange thing start to happen. When close the lid, laptop goes to sleep. When I open the lid, laptop wakes up and I can use it for roughly 2 seconds before screen suddenly goes blank and it automatically reboots. There is no BSOD or crash dump. It just reboots. This happens every time I close and open the lid. Basically, I can't use "sleep" feature. This is very annoying. The OS is Windows 10 Creator Update with the latest graphics drivers for both Intel HD4600 and Nividia KM2100. As soon as I revert Video Settings in BIOS from "Advanced" to "Starndard", which sadly disables Nvidia graphics card for external monitors, this strange behavior goes away. Any solutions?  Thanks in advance.

I'm having an odd problem with a ThinkPad X250, connected to an Ultra Dock, and the HDMI output. On my monitor it works fine, without any issues, but on another monitor, specifically one attached to an Optelec ClearView HD device, it doesn't seem to work. The PC doesn't recognise anything being connected, and the monitor itself doesn't show anything on it. The next part is a bit long to explain, so apologies in advance: The problem monitor connects to a camera for the device, it uses a HDMI to DVI-D connection (the monitor only has a DVI-D or VGA input), and this works, the camera image is visible as expected. What should happen is that the HDMI input on the back of the camera control box can have a HDMI cable put into it from a PC (or laptop and dock in this case), and you can then flick between the camera and the PC input, but this doesn't work, instead when flicking to the PC it displays a black screen. Interestingly the control box doesn't give a red 'x' that it does when nothing is connected, so it knows something is there, but can't display it. To narrow the issue down, I tried connecting the HDMI to DVI-D connection that the camera uses to the Ultra Dock, and that didn't work either. As far as Windows is concerned for both connections (HDMI and HDMI to DVI-D) there's nothing there (I check on the laptop screen under display settings). I've called Optelec about it, and they've not had the same problem, but are looking into it. I was wonderi... Read more

Hi, I can't adjust the screen brightness on my X250 at all. I have Windows 7 on it. When I press + and - the slider thing shows up, and it goes up and down, but nothing happens. It's really bright and have already been like this for weeks. The colour is slightly wrong as well. Restarting, shutting down or closing and opening the lid does nothing.It got stuck after I disconnected it from my docking station, so I tried connecting it and disconnecting again - nothing. I've updated Windows and nothing there as well. I'm getting really frustrated since nothing works.. Is there something to do? Please help..

Greetings, I just have a quick question, does the Lenovo X250 or will the X260 be compatible with both an SSD and an MSATA storage option? I plan to buy the X260 sometime in late March, but my biggest concern is swapping out the included 500 GB hard drive, or at least supplementing it with an MSATA 500 GB drive. I am worried about how I am going to get windows 10 on the drive, given that by swaping the main drive I will get rid of the OS. So my plan is to find a way to move the O.S. from the main drive to an MSATA. However, if there is a way for me to simply install a new SSD (500GB) and replace the included 500GB 7200 RPM drive, then I would just rather do that. Not having the CD or CD key seems to make re-installing the OS rather difficult though. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks!

A:Lenovo X250/X260 Msata Compatible?

I haven't tried x260, but x250 works with M2 drives. mSATA is old technology

(Obviously after update to BIOS 1.23) my Thinkpad X250 (Windows 10 Pro 1607) always boots into BIOS. I am able to start the X250 via F12 but this can't be the longterm solution. I already tried with no success: Windows 10 start repairBootrec /fixmbrBIOS:Optimized defaultsSecure Boot disabledUEFI and LegacyLegacy firstOnly LegacyDisable "Execution Prevention" (https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X240-cannot-boot-windows-7-64-bit-after-upgra...)Do you have any idea(s)? Thanks - Michael 

A:X250 always boots into BIOS

Sounds like your boot order is messed up.  Boot into the BIOS.  Go to startup/boot.  What does it say for the order?  Hit F9 to load defaults.  Try again

Hello all,The built-in "Lenovo Update" agent program recommended a BIOS update v1.23 (it's a critical update), so I did. And then my system doesn't boot: it's hangs on the "Starting Windows" logo page (Windows 7 64 bit). So I am trying to rollback to the last working version v1.21. Confirmed that my machine is type 20CL, went here, go the bootable CD, successfully went to the BIOS Update Utility, and then it said: "system program file is not correct for this system" ? The followings settings in BIOS were applied to try enable a rollback of BIOS but failed...??? * I am sure: - my download was correct- no issue on handling the ISO burning to CD- this has nothing to do with Windows or operating system* Any idea folks?I really really need my system back... Thanks.Angus

Dear all,
I am in a trouble with Advanced Power Setting on Windows 10.
There are limited options only when I go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings\Change advanced power settings in particular Intel (R) Dynamic Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework Settings.
For some of the missing options I followed this page and fixed: www.eightforums.com/.../50890-options-missing-power-options-advanced-settings.html
However I could not add Intel (R) Dynamic Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework Settings in advanced power settings even though followed these links:

P.S: All drives are updated.

A:Missing Advanced Power Settings: TDP Settings (XPS13 9360)

I don't see them on my XPS 13 9360 either.  I just figured that this CPU/chipset might not support those settings anymore.
