The power button no longer works. Is the replacement of a power button possible? I have tried holding the power button in for a few seconds to see if it can make contact and nothing is working. I can see a green light inside the tower so there is power to the unit, I just can't get it to boot up. I have tried a different power cord and other things plugged into the power strip work fine. Thanks for any guidance you can offer.

I think your power supply has blown, take it to a computer store and ask them to replace the power supply then your problems should be over but you could just ask them to transfer computer box and that should also fix your problem because most boxes have a power supply in them. a small test you can do before that is get a switch open the pc and connect it to the mother board (without soldering it) if it turns on it is the switch then you buy a box if it doesn't make sure you dont use a toggle switch if you use a small hold switch and it wont turn on get a new box.

Probably the power supply. See if you can borrow a friend's power supply (not Dell) and temporarily replace the one in your computer with the borrowed one.

Laptop wont boot up

Hello,You must not have anythinghooked up to the computer not a printer telephone cord for modem nothing.

You must remove the battery and the poweradapter.

You hold the power button down for two minutesto purge out the residual memory and power.

Then you plug only the power adaper in and tryto boot up.Sometimes you have to hold the power button down a little longer toget it to boot.

If it does not boot then try unplugging the cordand hold it down another two minutes.

Try again with just the battery.

If neither work you may have a bad battery aswell as power cord or possibly just a bad power cord that is not charging thebattery.
Pleaselet me know if you have any further questions or concerns.Alsoplease rate it if you like the answer it helps alot.Thanks.

I forgot the main boot password for my IBM 8172- how can I reset it? What if I dont have the setup disk?

You can try a couple of things. Unplug the machine, push in and hold the power on button for 30seconds or longer, plug back in and reboot, see if you can back into boot config. If not, power off, unplug, open case, remove the small LI-ION battery, its the round one in the middle of you MOBO. Press and hold power button like before. Replace, re-plug, re-try. Hope this works...cross your fingers.

I'm not sure but it is worth a try. Hold the power button down until the unit starts to work stably. I have tried this and it has worked before. Also make sure your printer is not attached to the battery back up.
Only your monitor and CPU should be on the Battery Back up Section. All other accessories should be on the other outlets. I have tried holding the button down on a friends, and it worked for a longer period.
It may need a new battery, or to be replaced because of the faulty switch.
Hope this helps you.

Our dishwasher's lock indicator won't turn off, even after holding down the heated dry button for 3 seconds. We also tried disconnecting the power for 5 minutes and it would not reset. What part do I...

Try holding the button down for longer say 5 seconds. When you push the button and hold it the little green light should blink. I would disconnect the power for longer..try 20 minutes. If that does not work then remove the inner panel and disconnect the control panel connector from the control box then plug it back in...see if that clears the locked control. If it continues to have a problem then you may need to replace the control panel.
