I own a MSI GL 62M 7RDX laptop and my motherboard went, I don't know the specific item number but it has the i5 and the GTX 1050. I have a friend that has a MSI GE Series Apache laptop that the screen got shattered on and isn't used anymore. He offered to give me the motherboard out of his if I wanted. As far as I see the ports and screw locations match up and they seem to the the exact same shape but I didn't measure. In fact both models look almost identical. Again I don't know item number specifics but I know his has the i7 and GTX 1060 if that helps identify. Would I be able to replace my broken mother board with the one out of his GE series laptop? I understand that buying a newer and better laptop is easier but considering I'd get the motherboard for free and I'm capable of installing it myself so it would be a lot cheaper than spending money for a new one.

if everything fits, like a 1:1 replacement, screen port works, everything works, then why not?
