Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1150 Notebook ?

1150 won turns on then shuts off

\015 Hello i have an inspiron 1150 that i recieved from a woman wanting me to fix it. she told me that it has been dropped several times and now would not turn on. I disassemble it to find that the AC power jack was almost completly off of the motherboard. I then ordered a new piece and resoldered that piece into the motherboard. It will now turn on but the CAPS LOCK key flashes and then it shuts back down not showing any display or anything. I tried hooking it up to an external monitor and still also no display. I also tried reseating the CPU and locking it in but still same thing.any ideas?\015

I have a Toshiba 1405-s171 serial # 72154211P. The green power light would not go on, but the laptop would still function properly. Then I started to get a message something to the effect that the battery was running low---even when the battery was not installed. So I thought it might be the A/C power adapter and got a new one. The laptop functioned awhile and then got the same battery low-shutting down message. Now when plugged in and turned on there are no lights. When turned on the DVD
