3. Running 4415u chip on motherboard.
was going to change to i5 7200U Chip with motherboard. Just confirming
4.Want to upgrade 720p touchscreen to a a 1080p but I don’t see many options. Not sure if this will work.

Yes, but the laptop was free.
Have about 80 in it for the ssd and memory.
Figured I could get a screen for around 80 but not sure what all is compatible.
See a few that look to match but don’t specifically say they do. Can do without the motherboard exchange.

Beyond RAM and drives, upgrading a laptop is a losing proposition. Even if it was free.
A "better screen" also needs to be supported by the rest of the hardware and included software.

Was hoping somebody would know the details of the requirements. I was unsure what they were or exacts. I see some 14 in 30 pin screens but that have the den mounting hardware lineup but nothing verifying compatibility.

I can't find any source that indicates that your laptop has a 1920x1080 option. You run the risk of spending money on something that is not compatible, or you possibly brick the system.
