    Sadly... No.
    Notebooks are highly proprietary when it comes to PC Boards. Some things like CD/DVD/BD Drives, WiFi cards, hard disks and Memory modules have standard connections. Thus they have a greater capability of interchangeability ( with qualifications ) . Notebook video is usually embedded on the notebook motherboard or are modules using proprietary interconnections to the motherboard. Such proprietary interconnections may be interchangeable within a manufacturer model family but not with other notebook manufacturers.
