Change from i5 to i7 in my t530 but screen freezes

2021-04-08, 16:47 PM

My computer has bios O3LKTA17A. Do I need to upgrade to latest bios to get the i7 9700k to workshop? And is it safe to do so or may it cause some problems?

Hello @Dan the builder,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Kindly post your MTM (ex 82B10000FR) so I can look up the compatible parts for your machine.

You can also do that by searching for your serial number here: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/desktops-and-all-in-ones/legion-series/legion-t530-28icb/90jl?linkTrack=Caps:Body_BrowseProduct


Doing that will show you the compatible processor upgrades for your machine.

Hope this helps.
