no power

Winbook x2 pentium. windows xp pro. Changed the cmos and was working good(see previous question about date incorrect). Tried to use recently, after sitting no power for 3 weeks. No indicator lights, does not power on even if plugged in. Checked the power cord and the converter, all get correct reading. I removed the back and found a small metal piece, 4X6 mm which looks like a broken contact point. I could not find the source. Is this traceable or is this a bust? Also, Can I remove the hard drive to prevent data corruption and recover on another computer? Can the power problem be traced without the hard drive? Thanks again in advance for any replys.
