    The only one who can tell you is the laptop mfg. It is a lot more than simply fitting in the socket. The motherboard bios must have the correct microcode to run the cpu. The VRs must be capable of supplying the correct vcore or cpu voltage, etc, etc.
    My guess [and it is only a guess] is that it will not work however for a definitive answer, contact the laptop mfg.

    Generally with a laptop, unless the cpu was an option at the time you purchased the laptop, no upgrade is possible. Again, check with the mfg.
