Your best bet is to google your lappy and i3 or i5 or upgrade CPU and find some success stories (or lack thereof). Physically the CPU will fit as long as they are the same socket, and the laptop will turn on, but if the BIOS doesn't recognize it, you're either stuck or learn how to make/load hacked BIOS code.
