    I flashed my Y410P's BIOS with the modded version from the guide on techinferno. Program said it was successful. I reboot into BIOS, change a few power related options like S5 and some things that seemed harmless like graphics aperature size (from 256 to 512).

    Laptop won't boot up now. Upon starting it, lights and fans go on, stays that way for somewhere around 20 seconds, then shuts down and restarts, endlessly. Nothing but a black screen the entire time.

    Anyone have any idea how to reset the BIOS? I had a look through the techinferno thread and someone else had the same problem which they said they solved with something called "flashrom programmer", but I have no idea how to use that and he doesn't seem to type english as a first language. Instructions for accessing Y580 recovery were linked there, but it doesn't seem to work.

    Anyone have any insight on how to access BIOS or reset BIOS to defaults?

    Press the Onekey button to boot and then select BIOS setup.

    Can help test if your Y410p have a high pitch tone when keyboard brightness is set to medium during boot and shut down ?

    Hearing those sound before window shut down and boot is kinda annoying.....changing keyboard brightness before shut down and booting up is kinda unpractical.

    Thanks

    The sound lasts like 1-2 seconds, and oddly enough, if i put full backlight/no backlight i can't hear the sound. In fact, i've just noticed this now because i never use the medium brightness on the keyboard :p

    Is there a way to switch on and off between the GT 750M vs the HD graphics?
    I go to the NVIDIA setting and set the 3D option and physX option to GT 750M.
    However, when I play with battery, it lags, like night and day compare to power.
    When I game, how do I make sure that the game is running on GT 750M?
    I'm playing payday 2 on high and so far, no lag, perfect FPS (didn't count but looks awesome).

    Thanks.

    You probably are using the nvidia graphics but as Jobine said earlier,

    To switch the graphics go to the Nvidia settings. Or right click and select ruin with dedicated graphics processor (I think that's what is says but I'm not sure).

    Yeah, problem is, there's a black screen the entire time and I can't tell if that's loaded or not. The laptop still restarts by itself, as well.
