How to solder a power button onto a motherboard

HP Recommended
Hp envy x360 15m-bp112dx

I already thought I asked this question but now can’t find it anywhere. The power button on my laptop broke. I cant find anyone in town to fix it. The Geek Squad says they don’t do this type of repair, and even a place I got from hp support says they don’t do this and would have to send it out.


It is the type of button that has to be soldered back on. I can’t even find this particular button available to buy on line even if I can figure out how to solder it on myself. I’ve watched many YouTube videos but none will show that. 

ive been on hold with hp support and the line is just silent so I’m not sure that is even working. I have a major exams in a week and don’t have time to be without my computer for 3 weeks or so. Doubt I will ever buy another HP product. 

Does anyone know how to help me?
