Electronics engineer here,

I have not done this, so I can not give you a specific answer.....but I can point you in the right direction of where to start looking for answers. You are looking at like 100 hours of work to pull this off, there is no simple answer or simple solution that I am aware of. This is not a simple mod your are asking, but a flow-blown electronics engineering side project you are diving into.

MSi / Asus ETC don't make the screen in-house, they buy the LCD screen from a 3-rd party screen manufacturer (like LG in your case).

You need to acquire the engineering "data sheet" for the LCD from LG (your monitor) and from the monitor your want to switch to.. LG will usually give this to you free of charge if you ask. I know this because we do this in the engineering world all the time. From that data sheet you can acquire information about physical dimensions, wiring diagrams, power requirements, and all the other types of information.

You could contact the LG Display technical sales department and ask them if they have any recommendations for an upgrade, but they might not talk to you unless your an engineering firm. It would not hurt to try.

Post some data sheets of what you have and what you want to switch to, and we can talk and look into GPU compatibility.

Honestly, your time and money would be spent either using an external monitor or getting a new laptop. This is not a project to be taken lightly. Switching out an LCD display like you ask is a project for engineers, and not so much a project for end-users. It is impossible to do? No....but it is certainly not easy.

At a previous engineering firm, I had to upgrade the display in a commercial product. (much like what you were asking.) It was a pain in the butt, and I broke some stuff in the learning process. I highly recommend against switching monitors in a laptop. There is a really good chance that you too are going to break some things in the learning process.
