Not an April Fools Day joke!*
I have a Lenovo T500 that will not boot once it looses complete power (battery depleted & AC power loss). The odd thing about the whole issue is that if I place the laptop in the freezer for a couple of hours it boots up just fine and continues to work up until it's disconnected from AC and the battery is again depleted. Then I have to redo the freezer process again to get it to boot up.
My question is what motherboard component(s) may be the culprit of this odd issue?
If it's something I can replace then I would like to do that. I'm not shy when it comes to soldering and have soldered surface mount RAM before in the past on a hobby project.

If I don't place the laptop if the freezer and try turning it on I can hear the fan spool up, the lights come on and then it basically resets. The fan spools again, the lights come on and then it resets. This happens about 3 times and then it just stays off. The LCD screen never displays anything though.
