  1. Managed to access the bios. Quick boot was somehow forced and could not access the bios settings. I removed the bios battery and now i can enter the bios. Here is a screenshot:
  2. Just tried it and it says INTEL IMAGE: On the website it says you can not use it with an intel bios: Notes: This tool cannot be used, if you want to modify any other BIOS type (Award/Phoenix, non-UEFI AMI or Intel mainboard BIOSes) or insert a BIOS module, which is not present within the source BIOS file or remove a BIOS module. Special problem with Intel's iGPU VGA ROM modules (=VBIOS): So i guess i can not use that tool. The bios is a series of .FL1 files
  3. I don't think the laptop has UEFI its too old
  4. So since the laptop is from 2015, what you are saying is to find CPUs of the same era right ?
  5. What guide is that ? Did you attach a guide that i dont see ?
  6. You mean edit the bios myself ? I would love to buy the best 4 core 8 thread i7 but i don't think it will work. If you can suggest what to do that would help a lot
  7. I am confused did i ever showed you an older processor ?
  8. According to cpu benchmark the Intel-Core-i7-3540M is like 2% faster than Intel-Core-i5-3380M plus the i5 is a slightly newer cpu: https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-3540M-vs-Intel-Core-i5-3380M/m921vsm5308
  9. This is how the results are calculated: "Upgrade Chance" is a probability of a successful processor upgrade/downgrade from the Core i5-3210M (PGA) (original CPU) to a specific model. This number is calculated as a percentage of all motherboards, compatible with both original and upgrade CPUs, compared to the number of motherboards, that support the original Intel i5-3210M (PGA). The number "100%" means that all motherboards, that work with the original model, also work with the upgrade CPU. The number "0%" means that none of the boards, that support the original CPU, will support the upgrade processor. The manufacturers do not always test or publish results for obscure and unreleased models, and in some cases for OEM only processors, as a result they tend to have much lower scores than more common desktop/mobile counterparts.
  10. If you look at the chart here listing the upgrade chance the Core i5-3380M seems to be the safest choice: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Intel-Core-i5-3380M-2-90-GHz-SR0X7-Laptop-Processor/323957242365?hash=item4b6d5b39fd:g:K2oAAOSwF~1dsLby
  11. So which one is the best dual core i7 ? is it the i7-3540M: 2 Cores, 4 Threads @3 GHz, Ivy Bridge. Release date ≤ Q4 2013.
  12. Well if you go by the book Lenovo suggest the i5-3210M as the max cpu the laptop supports
