hi bill27,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

Yes this is Compatible,

  Both has the same Chipset type from Lenovo Configuration H55,

and both has the same Socket type support

 

Intel Pentium P6100

 

Intel i3-380M

 

This is the Lenovo FRU number for the part

My only concern about this is that the I3-380M posted in your link is not an OEM but a retail version.

   You should find a I3-380M that has a Lenovo FRU tag 102000939 for sure compatibility

 

Try Searching online about this Lenovo FRU number and check where you can purchase it.

 

Hope this helps

Cheers!

I just joined the Lenovo Forum so I can respond to this.

 

I would recommend going with the Intel Core i5-480M it is just a little bit more on eBay but it is definitely a better CPU...

I just upgraded my Lenovo G560 to the Intel Core i5 i5-480M from the Pentium P6100 and it was extremely easy and worked perfectly. It is much more responsive and better at multitasking.

 

This video convinced me to do it...

I would also recommend making sure that you have the latest BIOS installed or at least BIOS Version 29CN32WW(V2.09) that is when support for the Intel Core i5-480M was added.

hello, i'm new to this community, but i have the same laptop and i was also watching videos on how-to upgrade my cpu...right now i have intel i3-m370 - 2,4mhz and i was looking every +where for a piece of software that would tell me what socket i have so i can start search ebay for a compatibile cpu.

 

so far, all i figured out is that socket i have it's called 989 rPGA...can anyone tell me what that means?

Hello.
I have bought a cpu i7 620m. But it doesn't work in my Lenovo g560, when I change i3 330m to i7 620m, laptop doesn't turn on, just black screen. Is cpu broken or it is not compatable to Lenovo g560?
Laptop BIOS is 2.15

Hi, This only Solves if you want to upgrade to i3 which I already have, What if I want to upgrade to i7-640m, would that be possible and where can one actually see if that would work. Is there a tool of some sort. or does the latest bios update limit upgrades to for example i5.
