t430 crashes under load after CPU Upgrade

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. Smiley Happy

Re: t430 crashes under load after CPU Upgrade

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?

it could be something simple like a setting I didn't change or an update? I did update the bios beforehand

And when I say under a load its like playing any sort of game or just a 3d benchmark is when it freezes. And the system specs are T430I i7 3540M, PNY 240GB SSD, 8Gb Ram, HD4000 gpu

Re: t430 crashes under load after CPU Upgrade

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?

Re: t430 crashes under load after CPU Upgrade

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.

Re: t430 crashes under load after CPU Upgrade

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?
