Turn On A Studio 17 Without The Power Button? (Need Access To Files)

This question is not answered

Is there a way to turn on the studio without using the power button?

My computer's fallen apart today and I need to get to the HD and get everything off, I don't want to end up spending a freakish $150 for best buy to do it when I could do it myself.

If that's not available to me, might you know a way to get files off a laptop HD without paying out the nose?

  • Pull the drive and get an external enclosure to put the drive in and then connect it to another  computer and you will be able to access it like a secondary drive.
