CPU Swap 1.8 to 2.0

I have a well working 2x 1.8GHz machine with a dented case. I have defectice 2x 2.0GHz machine with a bad power supply. Could I just exchange the power supply and change the harddrives to avoid total disassembly. Would hate to reinstall the system and all programs.

The wattage needs to match. The best way to find out if this is the parts will swap is to match up the EEE code on the power supply serial number, NOT the serial number of the machine. The power supply serial number is on a tag which has the format "xxxxxxxEEEx". The "EEE" code is the three letters immediately preceding the last digit of the serial number.
