Replacing M35-S359 motherboard with one from S320?

I have a wonderful Toshiba Satellite M35-S359 computer (upgraded RAM, etc) that I dropped a month ago - the shop told me that I had a bad motherboard. I bought a not-perfect used M35-S320.

Anyway I want to take the motherboard from the M35-S320 and put it in my M35-S359, restart with my Toshiba startup disk and reset. WIll this work???

(the S320 comments that the display has problems, probably a "bad Inverter Board" based on message board comments, so I want to use my S359.).

If the M35-S320 case is OK and the M35-S359 screen is OK and will fit the M35-S320 then I would swap the LCD screen lid and inverter over to the M35-S320 including the hard drive from the M35-S359.
It would be less work and with luck it might boot up, if not you might be able to do a system repair, worst case, you will need to reinstall Windows. Plus you have a spare drive from the M35-S320 which you can use as an external hard drive with an USB hard drive adapter case.

How can i tell were the graphic card is on my toshiba m35-s357


The graphic-card is "integrated" into the motherboard.
This is unlike many desktop PCs, which have a separate video-adapter.

Trace where the VGA connector (3 rows of holes) where the "data" cable from your monitor connects, and look "inside" your computer to see the "other" side of that VGA connector.

How can i hook my laptop to my tv with a s-video cable? a toshiba satellite m35-s359


Yes usually with an S-vid cable with the RCA outputs.

Some laptops have DVI output which is top quality so if it has that port then get that cable.

Ensure it also matches the TV If DVI is fitted.
