Question about Computers & Internet
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.
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
