    well, i'm now a pro at assembling and dissasembling a ds and fixing many parts of it. now, because i have come accrossed many ds shells and other various parts, i would liek to know where i can purchase the ds lite motherboard and top half and such, it would be cheeper and more fun to build a ds. if anyone has a link as to where to buy one at, please send me it.

    DS mobo will not be sold anywhere as Nintendo would sue them to shit for selling their products illegally (mobo has bios, cpu, ram etc on it). You best bet is to go on eBay and find a broken DSL for sale and fix it up with spare parts.

    well i do have a broken motherboard. the idiot who gave it to me when he took it apart, didn't put the power switch in correctly and snapped the TINY black swith on the ds, so now you have to use a toothpick to turn it on, eather way, does any of you know how i can go about replacing that?

    The power switch? DealExtreme sells replacement parts, including the power switches for DSL and DS, at insanely cheap prices. Just be prepared for a few weeks waiting.

    Speaking of which, I'm getting two new touch-screen digitizers for my DS and DSL for $3 each, so soon I'll have two new and unscratched touch screens.

    Yes. It's called the power switch.
    Very cheap at DX and pretty easy to solder in place BUT be careful removing the old broken swith as you can easily damage the M/B.
