You probably need to update your motherboard BIOS to a later version that recognizes the newer CPU. Do that with the old CPU installed.

I would strongly suggest getting a new laptop. There is very little upgrade possibility in laptops as the sockets change more frequently than in desktops and there is no consideration for backwards compatibility. The Turion 64 X2s are the fastest chips available for that laptop so if you already have one, the best you can do is to possibly put in one that's a few hundred MHz faster is all. At the end of the day it's still a six year old chip.
