Welcome to the Lenovo Community Gargeya_369 !

 

On page #69 of your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual lists 5 different motherboards that were used in the Z500.  To get an exact replacement I would suggest you inspect your current motherboard for a part number which you can then use to buy a replacement.   Here is a link to that manual for your reference....

As Len stated, eBay is a good source for replacement parts.  Otherwise once you have the motherboard part number you can search the Internet on that to see what is available.

After replacing the motherboard, in the BIOS setup screen the below three are showing invalid.

Product Name: INVALID

Lenovo SN: INVALID

Windows License: INVALID

 

Will there be any problem now ?

And How can I get back these values in BIOS screen.?

Thankyou.

That information can only be updated by a Lenovo Service Center. There is no software utility that is available to the consumer / owner that will update the information.

 

As for problems, I am assuming that when you installed Windows that it installed and activate without any problems.  Either you had entered the Windows Key or used a recovery media.  That would be the only area I can foresee where there might be a problem with the License information missing in the BIOS.  The model and serial number information would only be useful if you were to use a Lenovo App or Bridge to check your warranty which I assume is no longer active.
