    I may just have to put this netbook on the back burner until I find another one that's parts only and hope the motherboard is good...

    Just get a cheap DDR SO-DIMM (even 1GB stick will serve the purpose) on eBay for testing. It is possible, but not likely, that the RAM is bad. If you have two RAM slots, find one that matches your existing module, and then you can run in dual channel if you end up fixing the laptop.

    You can find on Ebay some working Acer 1410 at 65€, found one this morning from Germany with 1Gb + Celeron 743. This is clearly an old and not powerfull laptop, not sure why you want to repair this one but i recommand you to search on ebay.

    Well, if the problem was just the battery, then it's worth the effort, but it's looking more problematic, so it's perhaps not worth continuing... hard to say...
