Motherboards in laptops are unique to each laptop and as a rule are not interchangeable due to the location of outputs and what not on the back/side/front and physical dimensions. Even the connectors and wiring can be different from one model revision to the next, not to mention different voltages the components are designed to work with - feed 20v through something that is only expecting 15v and expect the smell of burning to fill the air.

your best bet would be to check ebay for an exact copy of yours that is being sold for parts... otherwise if you can find one motherboards for laptops ( that are as said above specific to the make and model ) you will be looking at usually between $200-$500US. Good luck
