Any water damage?

Like stated about do the normal resets. If its water damaged its most likely a board issues.

Even without board damage is could be a PCH issue.

A PCH problem on a board that came out three years before mobile Intel platforms had PCH.. no.

Dead MCP89u. You will never find this new, so scrap it.

If you are adept with BGA rework and locating chipsets that were discontinued six years ago, then do this quick before the hinges break and battery explodes.
