Hybrid mod with Y540

2020-01-05, 12:37 PM

Hello guys, (sry i'm not english)

 

I recently bought a Y540 17'', It work verry well but just have 2h of battery life.. I can't find a lot of option in the soft Lenovo Vantage (here a screenshot) 

 I'm supposed to find hybrid mod under "Legion Edge" but if you understand french a little you can see there is nothing...

I've reinstall a lot of time Lenovo Vantage and Interl VGA drivers but always nothing.. Same in the bios I can't find "switchable graphics".

Thanks

Hi MrWarzo0,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Have you tried updating the BIOS of the machine?

 

This may help to update the options in the BIOS.

Hope this helps.
Regards,

i installed that version and there are more settings available now, but there is no option for hybrid mode yet. I would also like to point out that in the bios, the intel setting to change to switchable graphics is greyed out and i cannot change it.

IMO, 26WW bios version is the best.

Downgrade to this one and this functionality should appear in bios ;)

1.enter BIOS and turn on/enable downgrade bios option, save and exit
2. download bios from this link:
https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/bhcn26ww.exe

3. install downloaded bios clicking on it in Windows 10 (computer will restart a few times)
4. after bios downgrade enter into it again and Load Default values (also INTEL/Nvidia switching option should be available)

Thanks for the help but the support tell me that hybrid mod doesn't exist anymore..

 

Here their answer : 

Nous sommes désolés pour le probléme que vous rencontrez.Malheureusement cette option n'est plus présente sur Lenovo Vantage.Cependant ,cela est possible d'une autre maniére.
1.Allez dans Panneau de Configuration Nvidia
2.Paramétres 3D
3.Ensuite vous pouvez chosisir pour chaque application la carte graphique

(use gg trad)

 

I don't understand why, hybrid mod is necessary but they deleted it .....
