Enable turbo boost i7-820QM Tags: CPUs Intel i7 Turbo Boost Last response: January 18, 2013 1:37 PM in CPUs Share rajanm1 January 12, 2013 1:54:45 PM Hi, I just upgraded my laptop (acer 5942) CPU from an i3-330M to an i7-820QM but i can not get turbo boost to work. I downloaded the turbo boost monitor but it says that intel turbo boost technology must be enabled for the application to run. There is no option in the BIOS to enable turbo boost either! :-( Anyone have any ideas?

Also tried the latest ones from the intel site but they dont work either! Any ideas why the drivers do not work? zdbc13 January 13, 2013 12:23:15 PM Your board and bios probably do not support that feature on that processor. rajanm1 January 13, 2013 12:24:46 PM they should do because there was a version of the same laptop with that processor (which is why i got it) zdbc13 January 13, 2013 12:42:17 PM Have you tried Acer support? rajanm1 January 13, 2013 12:43:08 PM yep, they are useless! is there a program i can download to manually overclock in windows? rajanm1 January 18, 2013 1:37:32 PM bump?
