I've already done that. The battery works fine. It'll fully charge with the laptop off, so it's not that.

Tried jiggling the power cord around and in the jack with the battery removed, never lost power. I swear I had a live XP disc but I can't find it, I'll have to get one or maybe a live linux distro...

Well when I had the thing torn apart it didn't look loose. As previously mentioned I've tried another power adapter with the same results. I don't think it's the battery as it charges and discharges...

The disk drive is fine, or at least I'm almost positive it's not the fault. I've ran a few memory tests, all with no errors, so I'm pretty sure the RAM is good. I took the hard drive out completely....

Well shoot. I got the new sister board finally. Popped it in, buttoned it all back up, booted into the BIOS, plugged the power adapter in and then blank, just like before. So it doesn't appear that...

Thanks for the suggestions all. I think I'm just going to buy another sister board for less than $10 and see where I get. If it's not the fix then I may either scrap it all or see if I can pick up a...

I guess the real question though... would those damaged chips on the sister board cause all the problems? It doesn't seem like it'd have anything to do with it, but then again, maybe all it takes is...

Yes, those two things are also broken. I've since taken them completely off the board. Unfortunate I already took the HSF and all off. I'll have to get some thermal paste. I'm wondering if it'd do...

Or, do you think I could put the laptop back together without this board and cable and it'd work?

Ugh.. Everything that's empty looks like it has nicely melted pillows of solder paste. I can't find a single one that looks like a "cold solder" or looks like it may have been flattened in the...

And like I said, as far as I can tell, none of the empty boxes are the right/same length as the existing P15 component boxes. And none of the pads look like they've had something soldered to them....

Also, sorry, but when you say a "hole", do you mean as in a burn through because it is high power? Or do you mean it could have been placed near a purpose hole or pass-through for the MB?

So, in theory, according to the dump, this is a CPU failure? But perhaps it's caused because this filter capacitor is missing? Does it make any sense that I could run a CPU burn-in test like...

I don't think its a capacitor. I have no idea what it is, but I can clearly see "layers" of semiconductor stuff and metal, kinda like copper. Hmm... I'll give it all a few more look overs and then I...

No luck. This guy on iFixIt had pics and he's got the same board as me. Unless I missed it, then the P15 that is loose must be on the bottom side of the board as all his pictures are of the top. I...

I'd like to see both sides. However, that's not the same board. That's a 60-N3CMB1500-C07 and mine is a 60-N3CMB1300-D02. I can already spot some differences in some of the chips. Hopefully the...
