As I shooo my 3 year old away from the tower's power button I'll answer this one! YES! password the system, you can make it simple as 1 or 2 digits to make it simple to log in. Also, what i do is set the power button not to shut down the PC if it is pushed. (Start, Shut Down is used) this is how I did it: Right click on desktop and click "Properties" click on "Screen Saver" Click on "Power" then click on "Advanced" as you will see there is the setting to change this.
Hope this helps

The power button completely broke off my emachine T3090 desktop. How can I get computer to start-up without this button?


You should be able To just reach in there and press it anyways. It depends what emachines uses, but normally it is a little white plastic thing that the button pushes, because it does nothing itself.

I have an emachines desktop computer and some how 2 little thin wires came out from the button where you turn on the computer. I am not sure where those wires go but aparently they are really important...


The power button connects onto the motherboard with a jumper. One end of those cables probably go to the button the other end should connect to the motherboard where it says pwr with a few little pins.

My caps wont turn off


Try this. Press: Start>Accessories>Accessibility>On Screen keyboard. Try turning it off from there. If that doesn't work:
1. Choose Start'Settings'Control Panel and double-click Regional and Language Options.
2. In the Languages tab, click the Details button.
3. In the Settings tab, you should see a button called Key Settings. It may be grayed out. If it is, click the Add button and add another keyboard layout (it doesn't matter which one). Press OK.
4. Back in the Settings tab, click to make sure your original keyboard is highlighted and press the Key Settings button.
5. Now under To turn off Caps Lock, click the radio button next to Press the Shift key. Click OK.
6. Click OK twice more to exit the other two dialog boxes.

I have emachine ET 1641-02w check the power supply and its check out ok but computer wont turn on


I will assume that you have not messed with anything and it just stopped working. So try these steps:

1) Check the power plug, make sure it is plugged into the wall and also into the back of the computer.

2) Check to see that the switch is "On" on the back of the power supply if there is one.

3) Take the case off and look at the power button, try to press it without the case on, perhaps the power button is broken. If that doesnt work try and see if the little wires on the back of the power button are connect and bot pushed off.

4) Check the cables to the power supply, ensure they are connected to the motherboard and not disconnnected.

5) If all of the above do not work, take a power supply from another system and plug it in to *********** board, see if the computer boots normaly then. If that works you can assume the power supply is shot.

Let me know if there is anything else.

If you want to do this without a router (people actually do this? I like the hardware firewall) then you would need to have a second network card in the computer connecting to the modem (so one card connects to the modem and one to the second computer) and have the internet sharing capability turned on. I've never set it up so I'm afraid I can't be much more help, I just know a little bit about it.

Good luck :)

I just bought a docking station for my Dell laptop computer. How do I hook it up so I can keep the top closed and use my desk top monitor? I want to be able to turn on the laptop without opening the lid.


Well.. you'd still have to open the lid to turn it on, right? (because you didn't mention the model of your laptop, I don't know where the power button actually *is*)
You want to close it while it's on, without it hibernating or going to sleep...

Go to your control panel, then into power or power management (depending on your Windows version, because you didn't mention it)

Then have a look under the "advanced" tab where it asks "when I close the lid of my computer". Set that to "do nothing".

Now when you close the lid, the laptop screen should turn off, but the PC should keep running. I'm not sure if that will still turn your external monitor off though.

I think that is your best solution, other than hacking off the little button that senses when the lid is closed. =-]
