Will this upgrade be supported by the motherboard and how can you check that the CPU is supported by the BIOS. I am sorry, I am not familiar with these...!!

Thanks & Regards

No problem! Upgrading a laptop can be trickier than a desktop for a multitude of reasons, but you can definitely squeeze a little more power out of yours. Here is the link to a BIOS update for your laptop.

Be careful not to turn off your laptop during the update - it will brick your motherboard!

EDIT: After looking around on the internet, all CPUs on that list should be compatible with your laptop.
