Problem upgrading from i3 to i7 processor. Please help me!

Postby vivahit » Mon Sep 05, 2011 14:38

Hello!
2 days ago I bought a laptop Fujitsu Lifebook NH570/GTX (processor i3 370M, Nvidia 330M, Chipset HM55)

I tried to upgrade the processor i7 720QM and replaced i3 370M. - http://ark.intel.com/products/43122

Unfortunately my upgrade failed for unclear reasons to me.

Before i buy a new processor i7 720QM carefully read the page on the Intel chipset HM55, It says that the chipset supports this processor http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Intel_(chipsets)/HM55_Express.html

After installing the CPU i7 720QM laptop can not start indicator flashes for inclusion and that's it.
With i3 370M CPU run without problem.

Please help me! Maybe problem is bios or motherboard of the laptop?

Thank you.

OS Windows Ultimate 64 bit.

BIOS - 1.06 (31/05/10)

Hello,

according to the Datasheet the i7 720QM is not supported by the LIFEBOOK NH570.

https://globalsp.ts.fujitsu.com/dmsp/do ... -nh570.pdf

So there are not many options for you in this case unfortunately.
But you can try to update the BIOS to latest version 1.06 (if you have an older one) to see if the new BIOS version might support the CPU you try to use.

If possible the CPU should be send back and a 'smaller' one which is beeing supported according the datasheet or servicepartner needs to be build in.
