Solved Access Hidden Menu In Phoenix SecureCore Tiano.

November 15, 2012 at 22:31:31
Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate, Core i5 3rd Gen 2.501 Ghz / 4GB

I recently got a new LENOVO G580

- Core i5 3rd Gen
- 500 GB HD
- 4 GB RAM DDR3
- Intel HD 4000
- Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

Its sharing a huge amount of physical memory with my IGP ( 1528 MB ) which i want to reduce,
so i went to BIOS and searched for it and found no such thing. I searched on internet a lot and found that i have a LOCKED BIOS which needs to be unlocked or there are some special keys to access hidden menu.

BIOS version is PHOENIX SC-T V 2.2

Please help me to come out of this problem, i appreciate any kind of help.


Thanks.

"Its sharing a huge amount of physical memory with my IGP"

No it's not! I posted a link that explains how Vista & Win7 report graphics memory in your other thread. Either you didn't read it or you didn't understand it. Try again, see response # 5 - download the word doc & read it!

And since you're running the 32-bit version of Windows, it will NEVER make full use of your 4GB RAM due to memory mapping requirements.

Thank you for the reply again :D

I got it now, the memory problem but what if i need to modify setting in BIOS in future?
What is the reason manufacturer hides the advanced menu in BIOS? ( Its annoying for me now)

If it is possible to unlock\Unhide advance options, i will to go to any extent to do.Please teach me.

Even my 5 years old PC has all the options in BIOS.

BIOS options aren't hidden, they're simply not there. OEM manufacturers such as Acer, Dell, HP, Lenovo, etc deliberately limit the BIOS options so that users can't tinker too much. If they supplied full featured BIOS, the number of support calls would go thru the roof!

Is it a desktop or a laptop? OEM or custom built?

Re #5. No easy answer, you either change your motherboard or your computer.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Build a desktop from scratch & select a decent motherboard that has all the BIOS bells & whistles you crave.

If you want to play games with a laptop, buy a gaming laptop, not a Lenovo.
