    XP doesn't mind the CPU too much. I did a similar upgrade to my old Gateway laptop from 2009. The thing you have to check is if the laptop itself is compatible with the CPU. You can do that by searching the cpus that were compatible with the laptop's chipset at launch. And you have to check the watts. The more watts = more heat. You could also consider if the bios have updates. Sometimes that adds more cpu compatibility

    Well I am running XP on an old SandyBridge LGA 2011 dual CPU Xeon system. So the answer is probably no problem at all.
