my woes started couple of weeks ago while I was inserting sd cards and usb devices. The tablet is Dell Latitude 10 st2e and now whenever I grab it on the right hand side ( the one where the usb port is located ) it powers off. Also when the device is not ultra carefully put on the surface of the table or something like that, it powers off; whenever it's moved in hasty manner it powers off. Also sometimes it powers of when I plug in any usb device or sd card.

My thoughts are now turned to the internal wiring and if that is a case, does anyone know how to open this device because this is a model without a removable battery.

I would appreciate any help and thank you in advance.

Welcome to TSF.

Inspect the USB port closely and make sure the contacts haven't been knocked loose. If they get crossed up, it could cause a serious short.
