Remove the battery and try to turn on the laptop without the cord plugged in to allow the device to completely discharge. Put the battery back in and hold the power button in for 45 seconds, the lights should flash and then turn the laptop on normally. This always works for my laptop.
Which pin did your husband reposition, I assume it was the one inside the laptop. He may not have connected the power switch cable back in properly when he rebuilt the laptop. Ask him to carefully check all the connections by opening the case again. These sort of repairs are normally carried out by experienced tech engineers. Some dc connectors (the bit that the power supply plugs into) have to be resoldered to work correctly or be replaced completely. The fact that you were able to charge the battery means little at this stage I'm afraid. Let me know if you need more help.
Generally speaking, an orange power light indicates problems with the power. You also described to a "T" how a bad battery behaves. To test this theory, take out the battery and plug in the laptop. It should power up and run. If so, it's time to invest in a new battery.
To be doubly sure, if you have anyone with the same laptop as yourself, plug in their battery to your laptop. It should work if their battery is good.

Change your AC charger. It's NOT charging "When the laptop is plugged into the AC, the power meter in windows
tells me that the power source is still batteries, and the battery
level drops by about 1% every few hours" That's the reason why: "battery has completely died" If you do not change it you'll continue to "still it gives me the same low battery indication and will not turn on.
When you turn the computer ON, can you hear something running on the laptop? If yes, have you tried taking out the battery & just turn the computer ON with the ac charger plugged-in? If you tried to turn ON the computer with the fully charged battery with the above troubleshooting but still there's no display on the screen, then I think there's something wrong with your hardware (maybe the LCD or the motherboard). You could also try using an external monitor to test if it's your LCD that's defective, if not it's your systemboard. Try calling their tech support hotline.
