Its the same laptop I was talking about before. This time I put an acer aspire d225e battery in it and it seems the mitherboard is working just fine. However, the battery LED is blink yellow (not orange or red or amber) and when I push the power button it doesnt turn on ( probably cuz its defective or since its deteriored) I need help in somehow I can turn the computer on ( plugging AC adapter directly doesnt do anything ) and how to turn it on without power button / CMOS/ RAM ( CMOS since I jammed the socket) as fast as possible. Thanks.

Sounds like you need to fix the full system, you can't turn it on without the power button, and having a broken CMOS socket is also not good. That is an almost 10 year old lower end laptop, you can probably buy a replacement of the same model very cheap and just move your hard drive into it.

How can you have a fix for a broken switch without replacing something? If you can't do anything to it, put it aside and use another computer. If you need to get files from the system, remove the drive and use a USB enclosure to copy the files from it.

Its not even my computer, I found it on the street. Also it didnt come with any RAM or HDD.

So we are trying to fix a trash laptop you don't want to get parts to fix, I think you are at the end of things you can do with this laptop unless you want to use it to prop a door open to let a breeze in.
