You did not provide enough info on your motherboard,check the manufacturer of your motherboard web site to see if this would be possible
This would be a major upgrade that may not be supported by the motherboard and bios.

This could easily be answered by simply knowing the Mfg/Model and when this laptop was purchased. However, this upgrade path would be very unlikely.

It may not be able to upgrade with your current Motherboard, the socket for the processor maynot be able to hold a newer chip. However, you maybe able to overclock your current processor. Though risky it may help if you need that extra little push of power. Find out your laptop model and motherboard, then find out what you can handle or how to overclock your current processor.

You can forget about upgrading the cpu in a laptop. The cpu may be soldered in, the bios is proprietary, motherboards are proprietary, and the manufacturer WILL NOT help you in any way. If you must upgrade, sell the one you have, add some cash and buy a faster one.
