Default laptop problems

I know laptops are preety hard for repair but I was wondering if anyone was in theknow. I have an IBM 760XL. I bought it at a computer junk store which is probably part of the reason it's broken. (I've boughten other laptops from there that had no video.. the only problem was the monitor wasn't hooked up!)
It seems to have a power problem. It usually (not always) won't turn on if the power pack is not in. Sometimes it dosn't turn on with the power supply. Inside the computer you can push the power supply up and down to keep the charge. (I have a pice of cardboard to make sure it dosn't wiggle) When it does turn on it usually gets a little bit past the windows 95 boot screen, then it dies. I'm preety sure that the main power supply that goes to the motherboard it loose, but im not sure.

If anyone knows or thinks they know what the problem is please post back.

(the battery does hold its charge and the ad adapter does send power. I checked with a voltometer)

my pc has a big black mark on it because I left the mouse under it when it was being carried around is there any way to fix it without just waiting for little dots of colour to come through which seems to be working but will take ages and the person who bought it is seriously annoyed.

a black dot on the, case or a mis-colored-pixle on the screen? LCD are sensitive, and i don't think it can be fixed.

If its a dead pixel they can't fix it. As they would have to dismantle the active matrix which would be a little difficult (impossible).

If its a black mark on your case how did the mouse make it?

Find a laptop repair shop near your place
It would fix your laptop with a reasonable fee
