Hi. I'm hoping someone can help me. I have a Dell Inspiron 1564, Windows 7, Intel... etc.
Great laptop all around.

Having a problem. This belongs to the elementary school so it isn't mine. I have to decide whether to repair or replace.
When the battery was in the computer, and it was plugged in with the power cord, sometimes the computer wouldn't turn on after lifting the screen. I went ahead and removed the battery and am running on power cord only, and for a while, it would turn on if you held the power button for a bit of time. Now it seems that if you slowly open the monitor, the screen will blank out and there will be no power. If you leave the monitor alone, and stay on the power cord, it powers right up. So I can work on it at a desk but it defeats laptop capability.

It is out of warranty.

I know someone who could take it apart to look but I'm afraid because like I said it isn't mine.

The school uses it to run Quickbooks for their pto. This is it. Nothing fancy.

Thoughts?
