Lenovo IdeaPad Y510P-change the processor from i5 4200M to i7 4810MQ

I am the owner Lenovo IdaePad y510p Intel i5 4200m.
Not so long ago I bought a i7 processor 4810MQ.

Both the i5 4200m and i7 4810MQ work on the Socket G3 also known as RPG 946B/947 or FCPGA 946 but with the difference that the intel i5 4200m has a TDP of 37W and Intel i7 4810MQ has a TDP of 57W.

So after update the BIOS to version 3.08 willingly I took up the replacement processor.
To my surprise, after an exchange with i5 to i7 4200m 4810MQ laptop will not turn on, for a short time (1 to 3 seconds) shone on the white button "power" but immediately afterwards extinguished.
I suspect that it is a voltage input to the processor, but the BIOS is not possible because the feature voltage change is not visible / hidden. I hit it on:
but it seems to me such output last resort, and I wanted to ask what to do now.
I do not want to believe that the 300W power supply does not could handle the additional 20W per processor.
What to do in my Lenovo IdeaPad y510p to use Intel i7 4810MQ?
I'm sorry for his handling of English who constantly grind.

Re: Lenovo IdeaPad Y510P-change the processor from i5 4200M to i7 4810MQ



Did you solve your problem? 


By the way 4810mq has TDP 47W !


I had the same question on - can I replace i3-4000M to 4710mq, 4800(4810), 4900mq - all these processors have TDP47 W...


I plan to buy Lenovo Z710 (17.3'' Display) - some models already have installed CPU - i7-4710mq with TDP 47W.... 


So I had an answer - It depends. OEM’s like that don’t always update their boards to support all CPU’s that could otherwise be supported. For example I recently had a PC from our office that was completely up to date. It was running an H110 chipset but wouldn’t support any Kaby Lake processors at all. It comes down to the manufacturer to enable certain processors. 

It should work but it’s not guaranteed.


So it is up to you wether replace old CPU or Not... 


I wished too - to change i3-4000M to 4900MQ on Lenovo Z710....


But nobody knows will it work properly....? or not... Will Cooling System be enough to cool 47W...
