      two options:

      1. with the laptop off, remove power cable and battery. use a multimeter to test which points to solder.

      2. with the laptop off, use a wire as a jumper to short out 2 points at a time. when the laptop turns on you'll know which points to solder.

        Re: Note

        Note - You need to physically press the button to check the contacts with a multimeter.
