t430 crashes under load after CPU Upgrade

2016-10-26, 9:32 AM

ok ere is what is goin on. I just upgraded my processor to a core I7 3540M from a I5 3320M. My laptop boots up, recoginizes the process and everything but if i put any sort of load on it. it seems to Artifact for a second or something then freezes up. Then i will have to restart it. has anyone else ran into this issue after upgrading their processor? Temps were running around 70*c when it crashes im not sure if that is excessive or not. Max temp for this CPU is supposed to be 105*C and it idles around 40*C. any help would be great appreciated. :)

The temps look good.

 

Have you tried booting a Linux distro out of a USB or optical drive? Just to rule out a software issue (what OS are you using?)

 

What BIOS version do you currently have?

Your BIOS is indeed the latest, try my proposal above to see if Linux also crashes.

Do you have discreet graphics?  If yes, is it possible you don't make good contact between GPU and heatsink?

ok so i ran all the tests through the bios utility and through the lenovo support program and came up short. Though the last time it crashed it sent a windows report and restarted on its own.

 

i left the computer on all night last night. and I decided to try to play CS:Go this morning and strangely enough it ran fine. Then tried the benchmark test and it made it through this time. Im not entirely sure what's going on. Maybe it was pissed off because I replaced the processor and tried testing it right away? Or it updated while i was sleeping l? Im gonna mess with it some more when i get home.

Ok, so Update. I think i figured out my issue. My T430 has no issues with the new processor unless i plug it into the wall. If its running on the battery it runs fine. As soon as i plug it in it crashes. Now that i have an I7 should i be running a 90Watt power supply instead of the 65 watt it came with? or does anyone else have any suggestions?
