I have a very old Vaio laptop (PCG-Z505JE). Has had very few problems but the two it did have were fixed by great help here at DaniWeb. As of this morning, for the first time, the on switch on the right side did not turn it on. I think the problem is the switch because the battery pack showed 100% charge in a similar computer.
Any advice on repairing this myself? Hopefully not too terribly complex.
If not, is there some sort of workaround to get the power on without the normal switch?
If this can't be done, can I extract data (Word 2000 documents) from this computer in Windows 98?
