Hi, I recently bought a used MSI barebone laptop, model no. L715 (ms-1036) with
some missing parts. I cannot find these parts anywhere so please advise where I could find them. Missing parts are:
- CPU HEATSINK - BATTERY
I searched eBay with no success, contacted local distributors (I live in Germany) and tried even to contact MSI directly, without receiving any reply. I need the notebook for business, so to have these parts is vital for me.

You hit exactly on the head with don't move the unit when plugged in - there are many people with the MS-1036 having this problem if you search the web.
MSI does cover the bare-bone itself, however this falls into that damaged not defective area.
Many shops would replace the entire board, making it costly as looks you had done once already.
Good idea is to look to Asus 17" bare-bone and move your items over, much better made.
Citrus Micro - see you worked with them, so have I, always had good luck with them, they make great contact and sometimes too honest, prices are great to - like any etail store with returns, manufacturer warranty tells most etail stores how they are to handle things.
Could be why you see them getting rid of selling MSI products?
Looks like you found the best idea, take to walk in repair shop - hard to beat that or again, buy new bare-bone.
