Y510P ideapad EFI not booting

So this is a problem I've been having rather quite recently, adn is bugging me since I now can't play on it anymore with my friends. The main problem is that I can't get into the BIOS screen due to a lack of the system password... any ideas on what I can do to look it up or something? Or do I have to take it into a store?

Re: Y510P ideapad EFI not booting

Good day and welcome to the community.

The only way to be able to make changes to BIOS settings when a system (supervisor) password is set is to know and enter that password. There are no overrides or master passwords. If you don't know the password, a system board replacement is likely required.


For descriptions of passwords on the Y510P, please see page 24 of the hardware manual:
