Can I upgrade my laptop processor from intel core i3 3110M to intel core i5 3210M??

I have decided to upgrade my laptop processor and the only problem is that I don’t know if my Bios will recognize the new processor. I have already checked things like sockets, voltage, etc all are good…. the only problem is Bios.

My laptop is Sony Vaio SVE14122CXB

I ran a search and i found out that your Sony should have an FCPGA988 installation, therefore the CPU should be installed in a socket. This means that you will be able to do the upgrade to the core i5. Your BIOS should recognize it no problem. I recommend updating it to the latest version.
