Default loose connection?

my packard bell easy note has been getting on my nerves recently and its now its dead all together. What happens is regardless of whether its running off the mains or the battery it keeps loosing power then restarting. i thought it might be the power cord, but it does it just using the battery, so thought maybes the battery, but it does it when the battery is removed and its just running off the mains. It also does it if you move it around too much (hense the loose connection) does anyone have any idea what i should be looking for when i take it apart? ive had it in bits before to try and solve it but nothing was obviously loose.

thanks for any pointers

probably has an open in the circuit on the mainbord. Take out the dvd drive and the battery. Try lighly twisting the notebook at the front corners to see if you can make it cutt out.

does the notebook go completely dead ? no lights, nothing at all ? do you have to pushthe power button to get it to start or does it comeback on it's own ?
