Is there any other way to turn on a laptop other than using it's power button?
Posted on 2013-01-29
I have an older Alienware laptop that has a broken power button. It has been like this for a long time and I haven't been able to turn it on because of this for at least 3 years, probably longer than that. I even brought it to a repair shop (before I knew as much as I do now about computers) and they verified that it is a broken power button and gave me no options on how to turn it on so I threw it in my closet until just now. Is there any possible way to turn a laptop on without using the power button? I'll go to any length to turn it on, I don't care what it takes. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
