Lenovo T400 6473-RZ5 : why can not work with 3.5G module

Hi, I bought a 3.5G module from Prolink. and install it to my laptop. But it can not support third party module. Why????

 

I checked with Prolink. They said it is not their problem. My laptop BOIS blocked the third party module. How can I  open BOIS?

 

Why Lenovo block other module?

 

Hope someone can help me.
