    I was messing around wi my laptop and pulled the top part off (the part with the power button) a small white strap connecting the power button and motherboard came out. It's still intact but I don't know if it can even be reconnected, can it?

    It sounds like from your description you pulled the ribbon out of the connector. You can slip the ribbon back in the socket.
