Dell Inspiron N5110 Motherboard Move

Hello all,

I have two Dell Inspiron N5110 from 2011, one with a core i3 and one with a core i5 processor. To my knowledge that is the only difference between the two machines. I have tried the dell support site for a list of parts to check this but was unable to get the component list for one of them. Any way, my problem is that one of the laptop (mine) has broken plastic around one of the screen hinges causing it to constantly fall unless at 90 degrees to the base and it also has a dodgy headphone jack that has moved away from the casing meaning it no longer works properly. My question is; as the circuit board with the headphone port is below the motherboard, would I be able to move the motherboard from the laptop with the issues over onto the laptop, and thereby utilize the fully functioning case, without causing any problems in the software of the hard drive and mother board.

Otherwise I'll just move the screen over.

Any advice appreciated
