Hello everyone  =)
I'm trying to update my Aspire Model NO: V5WE2 (E1-572) as the title says.

Current specs:
i5-4200U
2x4GB of DDR3L (MAX)
256GB SSD

Problems:
HDMI port not working
A strange vertical line appears in the center of the screen when it moves
Running a bit hot under load (it must be cleaned with the following application of thermal paste)
General low battery life

Having said that, to solve these small problems and then try to maximize the specs I was thinking of buying the following pieces:

https://www.ebay.it/itm/ACER-ASPIRE-E1-572-MOTHERBOARD-LA-9532P-i7-4200U-REV-1-0/324488277182?hash=item4b8d022cbe:g:-K4AAOSwRhVgK6nd
ACER ASPIRE E1-572 MOTHERBOARD LA-9532P i7-4200U --> Maybe wrong processor in the title, the correct one is shown at the bottom of the page.. Anyway upgrading to i7-4510U to solve the problem of the HDMI port and to maximize the processor (and also get 16GB of ram that is the max supported). Comparing the shapes of the current motherboard (with i5-4200U) with those of this new one shouldn't be a problem.

nv156fhm-n42/43 (found that one on another "asked question") --> to solve screen problem and get a better resolution (1920x1080)

Green Cell Standard new battery

Finally, a whim rather than a problem: it is possible to replace the standard keyboard with a backlit one? Are there also problems with the components I have indicated? It is not a substantial expense but I would like to proceed calmly with the purchase.

Thanks in advance to everyone for any answers, good evening :)

    Better double-check with the seller on which mainboard that you'd actually get since two separate models seem to be listed. The original came with an i5-4200u series. An E1-572G model also came with an i7-4500u series. They are two different mainboards. Neither seems to have a KB backlight connector.

    As long as you can confirm that its physical dimensions are close to the original specs shown below for the original 768p & 1080p screen models, it should fit inside the lid OK. Jack E/NJ

    Good luck with the upgrades. You might also want to consider the recommended AUO & CMI 1080p models since they might be cheaper from some vendors that ship to Roma. I think Aliexpress has them if you're willing to wait 3-4 weeks for delivery.  Jack E/NJ
