    push button start switch

    Anyone have a spare/extra push button start switch they want to donate to me? I don't need the button cover or anything, just the switch. I wanna try that as my next repair option, but I can't find one for sale for less than 4-5 bucks, then 11-15 bucks for shipping, and that just seems ludicrous. I'd rather send someone $5.00 for one if they can stuff it in a bubble padded envelope for cheap.

    gratzi.

    You know you can just short the two pins together (with a screwdriver, paperclip, etc) on the motherboard that the power switch connects too, to test your power toggle, right?

    If shorting them turns the bitch on, you either have a bad switch or it's not properly connected.

    I have this old pc that i'm on now, but I'm afraid if I start taking it apart I won't get it back together, then I will have no access at all :D time to stop being terrified by pc hardware! :D

    alrighty, changed the button, all is fixed.

    Now I just have to get past playing like a real noob, instead of a long time player who plays like a noob :D

    the only thing Nebraska has in it is Omaha, andi t could just cross the river and be part of Iowa, which for all my bitching about growing up there, at least was better off than this shit hole. :)

    Pfft Iowa was just as bad! Every single radio station was horrible country music or Christian radio! Worst 13 hours of my life, and that is including the time I was lost in Tijuana when I was 10 years old.
