Would like to upgrade CPU on Lenovo...possible? How to know?

Hello, considering upgrading the CPU on my Lenovo but was explained to that it may not be possible because some OEM machines BIOS won't allow it. (reference thread: Computer slow...hardware...what are my options? Solved - Page 2 - Windows 7 Help Forums

I have queried Lenovo ... ZERO support.

So, the question is, is there a way to find out? Dig into the BIOS orrrrrr, some other resource?

Thanks.

Thanks for having a look. The Lenovo support community is pretty much worthless. :/
