Good Evening, Ladies and Gentlemen. I tried to replace the T5250 processor with a T9300. My Laptop only powered for 5 seconds before shutting down. Please can somebody tell me why it will not work? I have a Lenovo 3000 N200 Notebook, running Windows 10 64

bit. Am I overlooking something obvious. I have heard that some processors and motherboards are not compatible. Any assistance will be gratefully received.

Cheers!šŸ˜

It does not work because you did not check with Lenovo to see if your upgrade processor was compatible with THEIR BIOS.

An upgrade processor must be socket, chipset, AND BIOS COMPATIBLE.
