Replacing the Logic Board on my PowerBook G4?

Okay, so I got a PowerBook from my uncle because he got a Mac Pro Tower. Before he gave it to me, he decided that if I'm going to get it, he doesn't want to just give it to me for free.

So he, knowing nothing about computers, rips some of the things off of the Logic Board. Now me, knowing a bit about computers, I know you don't do that. Ever.

So the Logic Board is completely broken, and I can't use it at all. It won't even boot.

Now I found a motherboard:

Now in the title of that, it says A1013, but it also says 820-1502-A.

On my PowerBook G4, my battery says A1039, but my Logic Board does say 820-1502-A.

So my question is, will this work on my computer, even though the A1013 and A1039 is different. But the Logic Boards are the same.

Some More Info:

Serial No: V73154JLMVZ

Bluetooth ID: 000A952F9318

Ethernet ID: 00039D548EA

AirPort Extreme ID: 000393EB5081

A1039 is the battery part number.

Your machine is:

Apple PowerBook G4 1.0 17" (Al) Specs

Identifiers: 17-Inch - M8793LL/A - PowerBook5,1 - A1013 - N/A

820-1502-A is the logic board part number.

A1013 is your model number and it is only used for this one machine.

Standard RAM: 512 MB Maximum RAM: 2 GB*

Details: *Apple officially reports that the maximum memory capacity of this system is 1.0 GB using two 512 MB memory modules. However, third-parties have been able to upgrade the RAM to 2.0 GB with two 1.0 GB memory modules. RAM Type: PC2700 DDR SDRAM Min. RAM Speed: 333 MHz

Maximum MacOS: X 10.5.8

Est. Current Retail: US$450-US$550

Standard Hard Drive: 60 GB (4200 RPM) Int. HD Interface: Ultra ATA/100

Just watch how much you spend getting the thing up and running.

The logic board that you gave a link to should work. Here's how to install it: PowerBook G4 Aluminum 17" 1-1.67 GHz Logic Board Replacement
