How to manually start up the MacBook, without using the power button.

I spilled some coffee the other day on my laptop (yes, another idiot of many to spill a beverage over w macbook.) and now my computer wont start up. So what i want to do is to start up the computer by opening it up by bypassing the logic board, so i heard that you could connect to power pads using a paperclip. This is a picture of the inside ofy macbook, if possible could you clearly describe which pads i should connect or even send me a picture with the powerpads circled that i need to connect. Thanks!

@rj713, that is the 13 inch macbook power-pad. I need the power pads in the 15 inch macbook.


Please give us the last three digits of your serial number so we can be sure of which model you have.


F5W are the last three digits


According to EveryMac that serial number goes to a 13" Macbook. Link provided.
