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

This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.
A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.
B. By Using Software:
I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

Though this may not be exactly your computer, the following visual steps will help you.
All you need to do, is remove the Nickel sized battery, that is on the main board.
Leave it removed for at least 3 minutes.
Place battery back into the main board, and reassemble computer.
This will most likely be the only way to solve this.
