    My laptop's motherboard/systemboard just died. (Toshiba Satellite M35x-S149) They want $250 for a new board! I've put together desktop computers before, but I've never worked with laptops. Is there any chance I could buy a really cheap motherboard meant for a different laptop and throw it together. I realize that the ports/etc will not line up correctly, but I was thinking about using it as sort of a desktop computer. I am more concerned with how difficult it will be to connect the laptop's display up to a new motherboard, etc.

    Thanks!
