Lenovo T400 6473-RZ5 : why can not work with 3.5G module

Hi, I bought a 3.5G module from Prolink. and install it to my laptop. But it can not support third party module. Why????

 

I checked with Prolink. They said it is not their problem. My laptop BOIS blocked the third party module. How can I  open BOIS?

 

Why Lenovo block other module?

 

Hope someone can help me.

Many laptops from different manufacturers are like that, HP, Dell, etc.

Only Lenovo block.


 

 

Not so, several manufactureres maintain whitelists for particular types of internal cards.
