Subject:   Replacing cpu

I have an HP laptop with
AMD Turion II X2 mobile processor RM-72 / 2.1 GHz CPU, Socket S1.
It is now causing blue screens in windows, and freezes
  fbsd, pclinuxos, knoppix, fedora live.

I have run the x86 mem test for more than a day, and
found no problems with the 4GB ram (2GB X 2).

I am wondering why the memtest does not freeze????
could it be that only one core is causing the problem?

At any rate I wanted to replace it with
AMD Turion II Ultra M660 TMM660DBO23GQ 2.7GHz Dual-Core Mobile CPU 
Processor, Socket S1

Will I be running into any problems?
Would the heat be an issue?

These are the full technical data on it:
