          You must contact the manufacturer of your system/motherboard and ask them what processors are compatible with their BIOS.


          An upgrade processor must be socket, chipset, and BIOS compatible.  Also, the socket cannot use a BGA socket (which means the processor is soldered to the motherboard).


          Here is a comparison of the two processors you referenced.

          Yes, they are SOCKET compatible.


          You may want to review this document:

          Lastly, to determine more information about your chipset and motherboard, you may want to use a utility like the one below.  This link is provided only for your convenience.

          Now, for my personal opinion.  Even if you can upgrade your processor, it will not be supported.  And, if your plan is to upgrade to Windows 10, it will do you little good.  It would be best to upgrade your system to a new/newer one that is supported for its hardware and software.
