Installing new Processor, need new heatsink?

Specs: Windows Vista, AMD Athlon Processor 2650e (512 KB L2 cache, 1.6 GHz, DDR2 800 MHz, 15 W)
Okay, i was wondering if this new processor will work with my old fan/heatsink, or will it overheat, or i will have to get a laptop cooler, if it will even work with my laptop. now before you go and say "Laptops cannot be upgraded" I've heard that ALOT of people have upgraded this laptop, it has a Socket AM2, so i'm thinking it can be upgraded.

Your laptop support up to 45w cpu. A64 x2 5000+ brisbane is a 65w cpu, it won't work, u need energy efficiency cpu. athlon 5050e is a 45w cpu and it will work.
Why do u need new cpu?
