what is the model of your vaio pc?
is this a laptop you're talking about? if it is, then you can't upgrade your cpu. check sony's website with your pc's model number.

So you have a clarksfield i7 @1.73GHz (either 740 or 820 QM) and you want to know if you can put a Sandy Bridge i7 in it?

The answer is no. Socket and chipset support incompatible.

Also, in many laptops the CPU is soldered into the motherboard.
