Re: Can You Upgrade the Processor in a Lenovo B570 Laptop?

Hi, I have a Lenovo B570 Model 20093 it is curently running on a i3 CPU, and i want to change it to a i5. I have installed the i5 3320M CPU but the laptop dosen't turn on, the power led is on but nothing else is. So, can i change it to a i5 cpu, and if so, what i5 should i use?

I dont think that the B570 supports Ivy Bridge CPUs. You must get a Sandy Bridge CPU starting with 2xxx. I have installed an i5 2450m Smiley Wink

Re: Can You Upgrade the Processor in a Lenovo B570 Laptop?

I did it! I didn't think it was possible! I sucessfully upgraded my B570 from an intel core i3 2350m to a core i7 2720m. Even though one is 35 watt and the other is 45 watt, it still worked. The i7 is running hotter but nothing horribly bad.  50C to near 70 C.  I followed a take apart youtube video. It's sort of complex because the CPU is on the upper side of the motherboard. I only had 1 screw left over!! YAY!  Everything appears to be working fine. My WIFI wasn't working at first but I went back in and reset the bios to default settings and reset comptuer and bam now it's working.  The speed increase wasn't at all what I had expected.  I just upgraded my ram from 4 GB to 8 GB a few days back and that actually provided the biggest speed boost of all.   

So it CAN be DONE as long as you get a core i3, i5, i7 series that starts with a 2*** (sandy bridge). I also used the long parts manual provided by lenovo in order to find a chip compatable with my b570 system. They list a number of chips. I bought the next to the most fastest they had listed because the price ot the BEST one just wasn't worth the cost.  

AGAIN...it does WORK!

Hi! Can you tell what BIOS version did you have prior to upgrading to 4-core i7 CPU? Thanks!

Hi memeberz

 

I havr updated my laptop b570 to i7 processor and ram of 2 + 4 gb system supports well...

 

Drawbacks battery drains fast since the processor fan runs fast in i7 compare to dual core.. system heats but there is no problem of system slowness or systwm shuts downs

And we're back...

Move delayed but still coming
