I have a friend laptop, which shortly recovered running without battery by cold treatment in freezer for two hours, but got symptoms back after trying to charge the battery overnight. Now it again tries to start, accesses the DVD drive and lights up some leads, but not by Power switch which does nothing, but by touch quick start panel push. I tried removing and reinserting memory chips and the hard disk. I noticed by trying to boot without memory inserted that booting behaviour did not change.
When the laptop was running one evening, it overheated and switched off itself after around hour of use.
I have options of using it for something:
- I could by Raspberry pi and try to use the hard disk and display panel somehow for making Raspberry laptop.
- I could try to find broken screen laptop of same make and try to swap the display panel or have it changed.
