interchangeable. So you have to use the same one designed for you model. I probably is better for a professional to do it and a professional that is authorized for the specific brand. If it's under warranty definitely send it back to the vendor. Your Windows license will be good as long as you do a replacement with the same MB and not an upgrade.
