The wire that connects my power button to the motherboard has been severed somehow. I brought it into service for fan replacement. When I picked it up they told me the power button cable is broken and I need a new motherboard. Or a new laptop.
Does this make sense to anyone? Can't this cable be soldered or something?
Thanks for any advice.

they are full of bs & possibly even trying to scam you. if the laptop was alright as in able to powerup via the power button except for the fan issue then they are the ones who damaged it. you don't need a new motherboard or laptop if the cable has been cut, just the cable to be fixed or replaced at their expense since they damaged it. if they won't fix it at no cost to yopu except for the fan then threaten them you will goto the better business bureau to complain what that store did. I think they will fix it.
