I just have upgraded my cpu from Pentium B960 to i5-2540m . It works fine but i think that the turbo boost is desactivate. Frequency cannot up to 3.3ghz. I've tried benchmarks and cpu stay at 2.6 .
As we can see this cpu is compatible with this pavilion g7:
Intel Core i5-2540M 2.60-GHz (SC turbo up to 3.30-GHz) processor (3.0-MB L3 cache, dual core,
My bios is insydeh20 F26 and is locked. I have no option about Turbo boost. Only Intel Virtualization VT .
I try to enter bios with F10 + A and doesn't work.
Can anyone help me to activate Turbo boost on my i5 ?

Even though the processor is capable of turbo boost, the motherboard may not have a supported option for it. Try the steps below to see if it is supported or available for the motherboard.
- If the unit is not TBT capable, the following error message displays.Figure : Error message
- After installing the software, the following gadget is added:Figure : Added gadget
- When the TBT kicks in, you will see the blue bar go up:Figure : Gadget progress bar
Hopefully this helps, Let me know what happens!

thank you for your answer. I have this error message... But I think it's because I have a locked bios, I don't have Turbo boost option, and many more. I have only Intel VT option. I think it's disabled. In the pdf manual, processor i5 with turbo mode is mentionned.

Finally, it works !!! I see in an other forum that i must load setup default bios and it will activate turbo boost. I did it and installed turbo boost software. It goes up tu 3.30ghz 🙂
