Bad mobo. Either deal with it or get a new laptop. Seriously, a bad mobo isn't something most people should try and replace.
Neither have I, but I figure it could be tied to power management software. It'd be easier to buy a similar old laptop and swap the hard drive. This would only make sense to do if there was unique software that you couldn't reinstall on another laptop.

I think you guys are right with your diagnosis.
I believe it went back to what I mentioned in Post #13, there is a short or a defective component, not battery, not charger, then the only left is the motherboard or casing (remote possibility).

Either way, I don't think it'd be worth replacing/fixing, especially if it is older than couple of years or this is not a high-end laptop.

Actually back to #4 where I mentioned it was a motherboard issue.
