M35x-S161. I replaced the motherboard, now video is 4/3 not 16/9

I recently replace the motherboard on my PC for the MAXIM chip problem and now the display doesn't go wide screen only 1024/768 instead of 1280/800. even on the BIOS window. Bios is 1.90 same has my original one. It leaves a 2 inches of black on the right side and 1/4 inch at the bottom. Picture is perfect beside that, just not the right size.

You need to go into the BIOS (setup) and reset to factory defaults first. This should clear up the issue.

I am trying to find the internal battery for the Toshiba MX35-s161 laptop. Where is it in the computer Middle/left/right?

I assume you mean for the cmos unit.
Typically they make it a real pain to get at (requires removing the motherboard from the case) it is usually located on the bottom of the mother board.

Hi, I have a toshiba m35x-s111, I was not using it for a few months because the monitor is damage. I tried starting it and now it comes on for a few seconds and then stop. Will not boot from recovery...

This is a Maxim 1987, or in some cases Maxim 1532ETL power driver chip issue. The only solution is to resolder the chip. It's a tiny chip, but very doable with a fine pin soldering iron. It takes about an hour to do the repair. The chip is next to the power plug so you will have to take the motherboard out completely to do the resolder the Maxim 1987 chip. Basically, the point is to do an actual resolder, not a reflow.

Sounds like there is a faulty connection between the power switch and the computer. Probably why its making a little noise.
Take in for repair and replace power button.
