Got this request during my drawing stream for a Kelly from Star vs The Forces of Evil! I loved drawing Kelly on the show, so I loved doing this one too!

On January 1, 2024 one of the world's most famous cartoon characters will at long last enter the public domain -- at least in his earliest incarnation. Mickey Mouse's appearance in the 1928 animated short Steamboat Willie, directed by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks, is cutting ties to The Walt Disney Company's copyright in the U.S. and sailing into the uncharted waters of public use.

Lenovo Ideapad BIOs hacking help? Asking for some info from the side of masto.

I have a new* work laptop!
I'm a big supporter of up-cycling where you can. So, the laptop is my sister's school laptop from a university that didnt want it back.

The biggest issue with it is Lenovo avoids cannibalizing its higher end by locking RAM and VRAM to 12gb and 2gb max.

Any suggestions where to start in hacking this for a Lenovo Ideapad 3 14ada05?
