Iam an IT technician.
The motherboard [(1P) SA70A09685 ASM (03T7251) for MB FRU W7] on my Lenovo M93p -Type 10A 7 Model # A01400 S/N PB012YNY has died.
If I install a micro-ATX motherboard such as one of the following:
1. Asus H81M-D
2. Gigabyte GA-B85M-D2V Retail
3. Gigabyte GA-H97M-HD3
Will the CPU, power supply and other components in the mini-tower work or do you recommedn only installing the same "Lenovo" motherboard?
Thank you so much,

The CPU and RAM should not be an issue as long as the new board supports them, but I believe the M93p model's power supply only has a 14-pin connector to the system board rather than the standard 24-pin connector, so you will probably need a new PSU with a standard 24-pin connector to power your new motherboard.
Another issue you might run into is the front panel connectors, so make sure that you take note of those and label them before removing the old board.
Best of luck,
