    WARNING: FLASHING YOUR SYSTEM WITH A CUSTOM BIOS COULD VOID YOUR WARRANTY AND BRICK YOUR SYSTEM OR CAUSE INSTABILITY. FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK! YOU CAN EVEN BRICK YOUR MOTHERBOARD BY FLASHING A STOCK BIOS!

    My personal website, please visit!

    This is my list of modded N5110 BIOS files. All have undervolted or overclocked GT-525M video card.

    Feel free to PM me for a donation if you like my work.

    BIOS Mods
    • Download A11 BIOS pack here
      • Nvidia Driver 3xx.xx bugfix: these BIOS mods also fix a bug present in the BIOS or drivers selecting the correct voltages.
      • Included readme.txt with flashing procedure and donation information
      • 0.83v
      • 0.85v
      • 0.9v
      • 0.9v 500/1000/800 (GT-420M) (My personal favorite for battery life & heat)
      • 0.9v 550/1100/800 (GT-425M)
      • 0.95v
      • 0.95v 672/1344/900 (GT-540M)

      • 1v 753/1506/900 (GT-555M)
      • All mods idle at 0.83v

    Modified Nvidia drivers
    These rename the GT-525M to GT-540M/GT-550M/GT-555M use the correct BIOS mod also if you want to be 100% correct.

    I flashed my bios ..

    1 - Fan kept running at 100% and it was very noisy !
    2 - The name of the GPU didn't change to 540M !
    3 - The only thing that happened is that the default clocks became 672/900/1344 which are the default in 540M ..

    If you fix that I will be grateful :) !

    No need to change name of GT-525M to GT-540M. They both share the same hardware. I changed the clocks of the GT-525M to GT-540M with some manual hex editing. So we dont need to use overclocking software and Nvidia Optimus can work like it's supposed to.

    I also made a 525m to 550m bios mod. However, don't forget to watch those temperatures. I am working on a undervolting bios for each mod

    Stay tuned!
