Hi the button you push in has there any other way i can turn on the computer.thanks

Easyest way to do it it to open the computer case, cut the wires going to the Power button, remowe the plastic around it on a small length, there should be three wires, then stick two of them together, just try the different combination, this will start the computer.
And don't worry this can't harm the computer, Basically you are doing by hand what the Power button was doing.

Hope this helps.

Computer will not turn on. It is like the on off switch is broke. Any solutions

Unplug the power cable from the back on the PC. If your ok with opening up the case, remove the side panel and then the front cover where you can see the power button, don't pull too hard. Check to see if the wires are broken. If not, try clicking on the power button from the inside to turn on the pc.

I,m afraid you can,t power up the computer any other way.
Laptop power buttons, have a make/break connection. Some power several items at the same time. You,ll need to buy a replacement Switch or switch panel, with the pwr switch on it.

If you give me the Laptop Make/Model.
I,ll search for the part for you.
