Targa laptop power button broken

I'm trying to fix a [URL="click here"]targa traveller laptop[/URL] whose power button is broken.

Is there a way to turn it on without using the power button? It has a button which turns on a media player which I can use to access the bios but not boot up windows.

Any advice welcome.

button only shorts two contacts for pc t start these should be direct under button. they could be carbon tracks so take care after removing button if thats what you do

How old is it? Targa has a very good warranty. If still in warranty contact them. They will pick it up, repair & return for free.

Good Luck

Thanks for the replies, guys.

The laptop is a few years old and isn't under warranty.

I can get the dvdrom to boot up. Can I use a disk to boot windows up?
