    as soon as the battery is connected to the mother board it comes on without pressing the button and goes straight in to the bios/status screen

    if you disconect the battery and plug back in it just restarts by itself into the status screen, so now it is all back together and on the docking station swithed on as it wont switch off and charging

    well i have done a few and this is the first to do this, just spoke to my friend and it turns out it had issues as well as the battery dying

    Turn it upside down while holding on the power button. When it goes to bios mode turn it rightside up.
