Question about Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop
There are no available part number for the power button. You will have to search websites like eBay for the part by laptop make and model number.
There is also a chance that the power board is on it's way out and it's nothing to do with the button itself. There are some Acer laptops that develop similar faults when the power board is going and repeatedly pressing the on/off button is one of the symptoms.
Other symptoms are the battery not charging properly, random disconnection from the mains when plugged in, and so on.
You can check if it's the button itself by removing the keyboard bezel. This is the black strip that runs above the keyboard with the power button on it. As far as i can remember there are no screws behind the lid on the hinge covers but check anyway.
There should be an indentation on the right hand side of the bezel that will allow you to gently pry it up with a small flat headed screwdriver. Once one side is up just gently remove the rest of the bezel with your fingers. Don't worry if you hear a snapping noise, its normal.
Now you can check the connection, both the power button and the direct button on the motherboard. Try turning the computer on with only the motherboard power button, that way you will probably be able to determine whether it's the power board or not.
Good luck and please feel free to post back if need anymore advice.
