I have T540p with I3-4000M processor inside. Recently I bought I7-4800MQ processor with intention of replacing old one.
After switching processor I cannot start computer. When I press power button cpu fan starts to spin, hd starts working but nothing more happen.
Supplier of I7 confirms that CPU is ok. I have the latest version of bios.
Does bios have blockage of different type of CPU than it was factory installed ?
Maybe I need to set something more on motherboard ?
