I have looked at the Manuals for both laptops. There is a different Service Manual for the 15-n200 series and the 15-n000 series. The part numbers for the motherboards do not overlap. That means there is no motherboard that appears to have been used in both model series. This leads me to believe that they cannot be interchanged. However, the processor offerings are very similar and the motherboards look very similar. HP does not have an interoperability chart. No HP tech would ever try to make the motherboard swap you propose. But the only way to know for sure is to remove the dead motherboard and physically compare it to the good one. If the mounting holes and cable headers for the keyboard, video etc are all the same, and the mounting for the cooling fan (very important obviously) are all the same I would say you can do it. Post back if you need any more help.
