Can we change the processor of G560 with the Intel I7 740QM



I come with this message asking for information

My sister has a Lenovo G560 Intel I5-520M

But I have in stock an Intel processor I7-740QM that I recovered on my old laptop out of service

I want to know if I can install the processor in the Lenovo G560 Notebook?
