Are Laptop parts region locked?

Hi folks, Pop on your detective hats as this is a bit of a strange one... 

I have recently been given the task of repairing a laptop Acer Trave Mate P645 Model number V4DA2. 

After some research it appears the motherboard is dead so they want me to quote them to repair it... Here comes the question. It was purchased in Taiwan and currently resides in the UK and I have read online and i remember hearing (probably overhearing) that laptops from the Asian Region would not work with spares from the European region. Is this true? If I was to purchase a spare mobo for the laptop from a local supplier would it be incompatible with the current hardware? Has anyone come across this before or am i completely wrong here? 

Any advice would be appreciated.

Regards

I don't know if it is true but I would get the parts from ASIA anyway just to be safe.
