    Contact Lenovo and say that it just stopped turning on one day. I wouldn't suggest telling them you used the debug bios and then it broke btw, just tell them what it's doing. They'll probably cover it under warranty and likely exchange your unit

    Stupid question... when I did a windows reinstall, I could not get the custom shortcut keys to work. (Basically the Fn+q combo is the only one I can remember for sure wasn’t working).
    I installed every single driver I could find on Lenovo’s website, plus the latest iCue and everything else... and never did get it to where the the symbols would pop-up telling me which fan mode I was on. Any idea which driver/software I was missing?

    I ended up just going back to using the recovery image.

    The latest version of windows (1903) is incompatible with the overlay for FN+Q. It was still working, just not indicating that to you. That's a known issue with Lenovo's software atm

    I should also add that I did the 76whr battery mod myself. Getting about the same battery life as others have reported but only after a windows reinstall (3-4 hours).

    The only way the overlay works is if you are on the Windows desktop. It will not work over any game or open application it seems. Just have to make sure you select the mode before opening your application.

    1903 is incompatible with the overlay. That's not the issue.

    The overlay worked on my 1903 Pro with all latest windows updates. I blocked all windows update driver installs

    You were able to disable hyperthreading without the advanced menu? How?
