PC power switch needs repair or replacement

Hello.
I have a 2002 MicronPC Millennia desktop. The button on the power switch has disintegrated. The number on the switch board is 710163-01A, and it has 17 pins feeding into 7 wires which go to the Intel DG965WH mainboard for power, LED light, HDD light, and reset. MicronPC doesn't have any parts, and I have spent hours searching spare parts sites without success. Any ideas?
I have found several ATX push-button power switches on the Web, but I don't know if it would be safe to reduce my wire utilization from 7 to 2, nor do I have any soldering equipment. But I would really appreciate knowing how to jury-rig this, and/or how to use a universal power switch.
Thanks for your help.

    Thank you. I took my MicronPC to a local tech. From old computer parts he rigged a new 2-wire power switch to go with my existing 7-wire (now 5-wire) harness. The switch looks homemade, but that's okay because it's functional.

Hi There, You are safe to use a just a two wire connection switch rather then then original 7 wire connection. The difference is between the 7 wire allows you to turn the tower on and also reset the tower. if you know the correct connection for onlu turning the tower on, then you can use the 2 wire switch. You can also bring the tower to a PC repair shop, they would be able to replace the switch with a 7 wire switch. I am not sure how much they will charge you since they all make up their own price. Let me know the outcome. It would have been great if you could provide pictures. I would be able to guide you to do the repairs. Mike

My compaq monitor for my desktop turn on switch pops on and straight off need to replace switch


Hello,

This can be fixed. You have to open the monitor and reset the power switch so that it will press the power button within the monitor. BE CAREFULL!!!!!! Monitors can retain a nasty power shook even with the power cord unplugged. DO NOT TOUCH COILS OR WIREING DIRECTLY ATTACHED TO THE SCREEN BEFORE DEGAUSING THE MONITOR.

Good Luck

Our Dacor Millennia wall oven will not heat


There is a manual reset button behind the vent under the touch pad. Turn off the power. Open the door. Remove the vent. Behind the latch is a two wire switch. press the red button on it until it clicks. reassemble and turn on power. It over heated when the power went off by stopping the cooling fan.
