So pretty much the deal is that i press the power button on my laptop, the hd light will go on for a second or two then shut off. i have to fiddle around and like push the button in all these different angles for about five minuites to get the perfect one and have it turn on, so im guessing there something wrong with the button. is there anything i can do about this or am i just going to have to end up taking it to a repair store.

It sounds to me like you may have to take it to be repaired. Consider first whether or not your warranty is still active; if so, I would send it to the manufacturer. A problem like this is faulty hardware and therefore should be fixed for free (under warranty of course).
