Default laptop trouble no power

alright guys first of all my battery went completely dead so i got a new one and the computer worked fine.... then the other day i was working on my computer and it shut off. completely... i reinserted the battery messed with the power chord everything was fine but absolutley no power when pressing the button. so i did what any frustrated person would do i banged it on the desk and tried it again. and this time it worked.. so now when the laptop is jarred and turns off i jarre it again to get it to work i will be removing the underside of it and trying to figure out whats wrong... ill be focusing on the powersupply.... any help would be appreciated. does anyone know if i can replace certain parts of a laptop that might be causing this problem.....

Sounds like a loose connectin in the laptop. My advice? Don't try to fix it, send it back. That a mfg defect and it's covered by the warranty until you void the warranty trying to fix the problem.
