If you short the correct 2 pins on a desktop motherboard with saay a screwdriver, you caan start it up etc..

Can you do the same on a laptop, reason i ask is because the power ribbon cable is a bit damaged at one end so i have no way of starting it, i have disembbled the laptop and wat to see if it now starts.

Not sure though, but the points where the power cable plugs, how many are they? How many pins are projecting out there? If they are a couple, you can try locating which are the ones that are connected to the power switch and try shorting them.

Risks implied : Do at your own risk! don't do if not sure!

yes you can : locate the pins to where the switch connects -  and short them momentarily
Commented:
I will NOT short the points as suggested. It will cause damage to some other components.

The  power ribbon you have mentioned, can you access both side of that cable.
The conductors in the cable ribbon are straight and would it be possible to run a parallel insulated wire
along the cable ends. It must be thin and flexible. Must ensure the external conductor touches the CORRECT terminals of the conectors.

Alternative is to get a the correct ribbon conductor and replace it.
