Exclamation Dropped laptop freezes on movement

I have a laptop that keeps freezing up when moved. Its a Sony.

I have tried reseating the RAM and HDD and tried without the battery. All does not bring results.

I have tried entering the bios and moving it and it still crashes so at this point im thinking its the mobo. Perhaps a cracked circuit or loose joint somewhere.

Anything else I could try before diagnosing it as a mobo fault ?

If it freezes when in the BIOS, it sounds suspiciously like a bad mobo.

Yes I think it is. It has been dropped so I'm not surprised.
