OK MAYBE THIS SOUNDS LIKE A STRANGE QUESTION BUT IS IT SAFE TO TAKE THE TOP PART OF A LAPTOP THAT INCLUDES THE SCREEN AND ATTACH IT TO ANOTHER LAPTOP  IF THEY'RE THE SAME MAKE/MODEL? WOULD IT MATTER IF THEY WERE DIFFERENT INTEL VERSIONS OR WOULD THIS MAKE NO DIFFERENCE? EG IF I TOOK  A DELL LAPTOP THAT WAS INTEL 7 AND JUST REPLACED THE TOP PART WITH THE TOP OF A DELL OF THE SAME MAKE THAT WAS INTEL 3, WOULD THIS CAUSE PROBLEMS - OR IS THE INTEL/GRAPHICS/SCREEN RESOLUTION AND ALL THAT STUFF JUST CONTAINED IN THE LOWER PART OF THE COMPUTER?

If you are exchanging like for like, same part numbers and interface connections, it wouldn't hurt to try.  Different versions of OS shouldn't notice any difference if the hardware is the same.  Different levels of display controller for different processors on the MOBO may not be compatible with different display elements.  But if the display is all that is swapped, it should be okay.

The thing I was wondering is if it would affect the display - the computer I have has a bluray player and I was wondering if using the top part of  a computer with a different version of Intel might affect it or stop it working - if the screen resolution of the screen is the same, it won't make any difference, right?

This may not be applicable to your problem, but:-

 

If you have 2 laptops, but only one with a blu-ray drive but which also has a broken screen, it would be simpler to swap over the blu-ray drive into the machine with the good screen - this generally only requires the removal of one screw & the drive then slides out.
