Presario X1000 broken power button

Hi, I have the same problem you had with the Presario X1000 powerbutton. Luckily the button broke as soon as the laptop started, but nowI'm afraid if I turn it off I won't be able to turn it on again.

Cutting it short, how did you turned it on with a spoon? I'd reallyappreciate if you could help me out, my e-mail is tatoon1983@hotmail.com

I already posted a repair solution to this issue but another way to get around using the power button is to buy a used docking station...I've found them very cheap on ebay and the docking station has its own power button the works to turn the laptop on and off. You also raise the keyboards slightly and get more I/O ports also for the price of the DS.

I had a friend that had one, but the button (on the motherboard) itself was actually defective (I could tell because it wouldn't turn on even when I opened the case, and pressed it directly). I ended up removing the button, and re-purposing the mute button as the power button:

It would also be fairly easy to replace the power button, but I didn't have a spare one and my friend needed the laptop back ASAP, so I improvised.

FLASHING AMBER UNDER LIGHTNING SYMBOL


Is it an amber lightning bolt? (I am assuming thats what you mean by UNDER lightning symbol)

That is the charging symbol for your battery, it means your battery is being charged by your power adapter.

Power button


If it is the plastic button that is down and won't return, you might try using some silicone lubricant available from hardware or auto parts stores. Silicone is a dielectric so it won't bother the electronics and might free the button.  I wouldn't recommend spraying the pressurized lube into the button recess but rather into the spray can's cap and then using a denuded Q-tip to dab a few drops around the periphery of the button. The carrier of the lubricant may attack plastic but is very volatile so you can let that part evaporate leaving only the silicone.
