yep, and it turned into a nightmare. trying to flip that battery out unseated the entire socket
.... i do not possess either cold solder tools or expertise but managed somehow to get it back into contact.
in the process, something upset either the display harness or the vid card.... this model has a radeon someting-other mini vid card. I've looked all over and cannot see what did the deed.... I now have a pink display
just as bizarre... when after hours I got the thing to boot anything other than 'PXE', it came first/foremost with "press __ to RESUME" or F10 for setup..... I forget which key it was, but are you kiddin' me? RESUME??????? I thought power-kill would stop the resume function on just about every notebook made, but not this one. [that, by the way, was sans drives.... no hddd installed, no dvd, no battery pack, no nothin'].
sure enough, when I killed the boot from nic and other things, put the hdd back in, it "resumed"
nightmare, nightmare, nightmare.
