YOGA 900 13isk 16GB to 8GB Motherboard Swap

I have a YOGA 900-13isk with the 16GB motherboard. Recently it appears the motherboard is dead and Lonovo customer service agrees after following their troubleshooting. Unfortunatly my warrenty is out and it is very expensive to replace the 16GB motherboard. The 8GB version is much cheaper. I was wondering can i simply swap the bad 16GB motherboard (Part number: 5B20K48454) for the 8GB version (Part number: 5B20K48436)? Has anyone have experience doing this?

 

Thanks for any help/tips

I would get 2nd opinion from local PC repair shop.

You have a 2016 or so machine.

Yeah I have called a few and they can't give me any guareentees. Basically I was wondering if anyone could tell me the form factor was the same and if all the inputs are in the same spot between the two. Looking at pics the two look identical, but I would like to get some more info before spending money on a new motherboard.

Is there anyone from Lonovo that can tell me about the physical differences between the two motherboards?
