Because the slot types for a Core 2 Duo(LGA775) is different from a Core i7 (LGA1136/1366) slot, you cannot simply replace the CPU. You will have to replace the motherboard as will.
You will also have to likely replace the RAM as well, since i'm sure you're rocking DDR2 with that setup. The I7 mobo will utilize DDR3. But since this is a laptop the chance of being able to swap all that out isn't very likely.
