HPCompaq nx9010 power switch broken

The power switch on my nx9010 has 'dissapeared' above the hole it should be located in and I can't turn it on.

How can I fix/repair this, please.

Is there an alternative method of getting it to fire ?

    Thanks guys - by using both solutions offered I got the plastic panel off and got it started up. Once I got the cover off I could see that the microswitch is actually about 3/16" to one side so the pencil trick didnt work initially.



    Will now try to refix the button.



    Thanks again!

You should still be able to boot the machine even if the on/off button is missing, try poke the flat end of a pencil down the hole and apply just a little pressure and pull the pencil out and the laptop should boot, to reapir this you need to remove the panel that goes accross the top of the keyboard, this can be hard to do because of how they are clipped together, you should not have to remove anything else because this will reveal where the "power on" board is, all you need to do is replace the button or the panel, you may even find the the original button
hope this helps 
regards

You need to take the plastic panel off that houses the power switch... (some just unsnap from the base and some have screws holding it in from the underside..) the power switch connects to the underside of it, it is kept in place by melted plastic rivots.... So If you can retrieve your power button from inside the laptop, you can replace the button and super glue the contacts where the button was previously rivoted.. that way it will still have its " springiness" feel and work the same as if it was the plastic rivots...

Can't access CD


If you mean the drive won't open then
Turn off computer
Locate a small hole in DVD drive lid.
Carefully insert a straightened paper clip.
Gently push & the lid should pop out.
Then you can open the drive & remove the CD
Restart the computer and see if it opens normally and reads dvd's now.

If you mean Windows won't read it then the drivers may need re-installing. Check in hardware manager to see if Windows recognizes it or shows an error for it.

Want to increase memory above 1 gig. compaq nx9010


You may have incompatible memory module. Just put in one memory module in at a time to see if it boots up, this will determine which module was not compatible.

Compaq nx9010 notebook


Hello, this is the inside of your laptop:

ddbb582.jpg

So the fan you see at the rear pulls in cool air for the main processor & it exhausts on the left hand side through a grill which you can see. It should spin up on power up of the laptop & you should fell air moving out of this vent. It is most likely temperature controlled so will only come on when the processor gets hot. If the laptop is running hot and the fan is not spinning you need to have it checked.

You can download the service manual on the following link:
