Laptop processor upgrades generally depend heavily on if the manufacturer releases a BIOS update that will allow the latest processor to run on it.
Especially if you bought your laptop before the manufacturer was releasing Core 2 Duo based laptops, then your current BIOS will most likely not work with it.
Check their BIOS release page for updates, you'll probably find your answer there.
