Re: Shuts down for no reason
With the battery removed any interruption of the AC power will cause the laptop to cut off. The power adaptor may be faulty or intermittent or more likely the socket on the laptop motherboard may have a dry jointed connection. These problems would not be apparent with a charged battery fitted.
Otherwise [especially with P4 type processors] overheating could cause cutting out - clean any fans and make sure vents for air intake are not blocked [by bedding etc].

1 Disconnect the battery and the charger 2 Let it sit for 1-2 minutes. 3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. 4 Connect the charger (don't connect the battery yet) and try to start by pressing the power button.
WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO DO IS TO FLIP OVER THE LAPTOP AND REMOVE SEVERAL COVERS AND INSPECT FOR DUST I HAD TO DO THE SAME TO MY DELL / HP / GATEWAY, LAPTOPS AND ONCE I REMOVED ALL OF THE DUST AND DEBRIS THE LAPTOPS WORKED WELL ALSO DOUBLECHECK THE FAN AREA TO SEE IF THERE IS ANY DIRT AROUND THERE TOO OK?

Boot up the system (without the battery). When the system runs normaly then place the battery on its normal bay.
Shut down bij removing the power from the system.
* Make sure you have not installed any Windows power saving tools, meaning let it run on the battery till it dies * Wait till the systems shuts down by itself. Boot your system again (with the battery in its bay and everything will work out fine. Shuting down by removing the power support (AC) booting up AND your keyboard with touchpad will work again.
So intill you have a new battery, you need to shut-down by removing the AC power and leave the battery in its bay. You can not shut-down on the normal way any more untill you have replaced the battery.
This sounds like a short of some kind from the motherboard touching either the body or some other peice of hardware, or you have a broken soldered joint on the board causing the problem.
I would take to a qualified repairer.
