there is a advanced bios in Ideapad 330 15 ARR ?

I recently bought a 330 15ARR, I was quite satisfied with my purchase for its performance after adding 4go ddr4 and replacing the hdd with an ssd.
I was really surprised by this laptop, the only weak point being the screen for such a low price it is normal.

 But now, I don't understand the logic of having blocked at 256mb the memory that VEGA 8 can take from the ram.
So I went into the bios, but no information to change the settings. So I've heard about advanced bios, but so far I haven't found it...

So please, even if I lose the warranty, I don't care I already lost it as soon as I changed the thermal paste, I changed the hdd to an ssd and when I added 4gb of ddr4.
I paid for a product that I can no longer send back, so that the iGPU would be limited to 256mb instead of 1Gb.

If this is not possible at the moment, do you have plans for an update of the bios to allow this?

Thank you for reading to me, I hope you understand what I mean, I apologize if my English is difficult to understand but I don't speak it natively.

Best regards Lucas.

Hi SoReXeR,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


As with most of the Idealine products, there is no advance options available for users. This is purposely made to keep the machine from unnecessary changes to the OEM prebuilt settings.


There may be claims for hacking their way into in with modded BIOS but such is not recommended to prevent risk of bricking the motherboard.


I hope this helps answer your query.
