I have a laptop lenovo g500 20236. It has intel i3 3110m CPU. I want to upgrade to i5 3230m. But when I swap the cpu, pc going straight to black Screen. There is neither logo nor text, but power light is on and fan is working. If I install default cpu (i3 3110m) pc works completely fine. I thought BIOS can cause this problem, but its already latest version (v2.03). So what can we do to install i5 cpu?

Tell sSpec of your i5-3230M.

1) remove AC jack, Main Battery, and CMOS Battery
2) remove HDD and all DIMMs
3) wait 10 mins
4) press and hold power button for 30 sec.
5) install new CPU
6) install CMOS Battery and one DIMM only
7) inject AC jack (without Main Battery!)
8) press power button
I followed exactly these steps. Result is the same.
You must check your i5-3230M in other laptop. BIOS for G500 hasn't CPU's whitelist.
I dont have any other system Sad
I think that it's dead.
Look at this -
So you laptop supports i5-3230M
I5 cpu demounted from Asus laptop. Is it important?
