Hi banerjen, I have not actually come up with the exact way to test the buttons. All I can offer is to do an autopsy of the reset/eject buton assembly, but not in a way to kill it. Use a volt meter set to ohms at a value of 20. You can read out the ribbon cable or wire cable, whichever model you have. The traces on the ribbon should read close to 0 ohm from end to end on each trace. If it read OL its bad. The switches I am not sure about. Never had any trouble with them. Ebay has supply of all the parts you will ever need at a great price.

Can not get any image

1) Check if lamp is still ok. If no light even after POST replace the lamp.
2) If lamp is ok, check if all black or all white or flickering dots. If you see flickering spots chances are your dmd chip is faulty, replace it or send it to service center to replace the chip which will cost you a fortune as dmd chip are expensive.
3) if POST is ok, check your input signal if correct choice, check cable if ok, check setting if correct.

Hp Pavilion, Power supply Inactive, HHD savagable, intel Chip Savagable, i was thinking a new motherborad for the chip and the hard drive ????

If your Desktop not start it means not you mother board problem because starting you find your SMPS proper running or not. Because SMPS supply all power in CUP so you check it SMPS on or off position. if SMPS ok then you check it mother board light on or not, if on then ok or not on then you change SMPS supply.

If your display issue then you check it RAM and HDD.

Display has black circles lower left corner and upper right corner. were smaller but have grown. Maybe 2 in. each now. Also lines in pink and black across bottom. Everything else works OK. Bought past...

Well your on the right track I would say it's your LCD because your video chip wouldn't make black circles I don't think. The pink and black lines are a symptom of a LCD that has been broken and the circles sound like someone squeezed it to pick it up by the screen maybe. That would be for your venders warranty department to figure out though. If you really want to know you could buy a cable to hoot it up to an external video source if the display is fine, it's defiantly your LCD.

My printer doesnt print and it is connected on a serial port it just says printing and nothing happens


Make sure the cable hasn't died, and check to see if the printer is working by printing a test page, usually done on HP's by pressing and realeasing the green go button, or holding down the power button. If the printer responds, and the cable is ok as far as you know, check and maybe reinstall the drivers with the disk that came with it.

Good Luck, Hope this helps!

I am about to add a second IDE hard drive to my P.C. and the instructions i have say change the jumper chip to slave! I cannot see any obvious ways to do this physically on the the hard drive. What do i...

All hard drives have a set of jumpers on the end by the power connector. There is also a diagram of the location of these jumpers, for Master or Slave, or maybe Chip Select. On each IDE cable (2 connectors) there will be one Master, one Slave as identified by these jumpers. These jumpers are quite small and easily misplaced, so be careful !!!
