I have a laptop HP Pavilion ZE5640EA. The power button is crasehd. Can i
make some direct connection in the board ? Short some pins to power on the
laptop ? In desktop motherboards, we just join 2 pins and the motherboard
startup. Can we do something like this in the laptops ?

You'd have to solder wires to the contacts the power button
is soldered to, or trace back the circuit to solder the wire
elsewhere.  There would be no reason for a power pin header
since nobody uses one AFAIK.

You'd probably be better off to just desolder the original
switch and solder on a new replacement switch (or if you
dont' have good soldering skills or equipment have someone
else do it).  I have no idea what electronics houses are in
your part of the world so I can't advise on where to right
the correct replacement switch (besides the fact that I
don't know exactly what switch it is either).
