    I was browsing the web and left my computer for 5 minutes and when I came back it was frozen. So I shut it down with the power button and restarted. It froze again on the login screen. After shutting off again the macbook won't turn on. No chime. The fan kept moving though. I tried the smc reset and pram reset. It turned on random tries but with the same issue of getting frozen up on the login screen. I also tried removing the battery for 10 seconds. Again wont turn on. Then I left the battery disconnected overnight and connected the charger in the morning and it chimed with a closed lid. And it went past the login screen but got stuck on loading. After that it turned on once with same issue. Now it is blank again. I can see the fan running and the ssd is extremely hot within 5 seconds of connecting the power. Where could the issue be?

    Ps: it has never been dropped. No liquid damage.always been handled like a baby (until yesterday when I tried to open a screw to remove the battery)

    So you're at that point? Your post said it got to the login screen occasionally. Not getting that far anymore?

    Disconnect the battery, connect the charger, and wait to see if the machine boots on its own without touching any keys.

    If it still doesn't boot, disconnect the keyboard and trackpad cables, leave battery disconnected, connect the charger, and wait to see if it boots on its own.
