Question about Compaq Presario X1000 Notebook
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
