For a minutes or so I remove the ac adaptor and leave the battery on, notebook was working. After it shutdown automatically, won't start anymore. (even battery showed 70% charged before it shutdown)

Edit: User manual is a PDF download so included a disassembly link here instead.

Finally found a friend of my friend who has the tool and know how to do the soldering to replace the part. Now the laptop is up and running. 

 

Thank you so much for your help!
