Unlikely to be ale to fit a different motherboard in the case as the ports etc. just won't line up.

Highly unlikely to be possible.

Likes been previously stated, it will not be possible to do a straight swap.

Unlike desktop machines where components are swappable in the main,laptops are designed and manufactured as an integrated 'lump'.

The is nothing to swap, it iscven a case of service under warranty it will be a 'total/swap out' .

Post warranty,you go get yourself a new machine ,technology is changing so rapidly,there is by and large no spares availability.
