Compal DL71 ... security issue?

Hi, I'm a newbie here. But not on comps. However, I am new to this Compal. I bought a deliquent account storage unit at auction. This comp was in it. However, it will not power on at all. On the left side, at the back, there is a small orifice with an emblem of a lock on it. It's shaped similar to a bird in flight, but vertically. Is this a device to stop from powering up the comp unless there is a key inserted? ... if so, is there a quick workaround? ... Seems to be a good comp and I've about had it with this ancient satellite i'm on now. Any help or suggestions are welcome.

Nope, that is for a Kensington lock like these . Re: power - try it with the battery out - test the adapter to see if it is actually providing power (get a $10 multi-meter to test - should be 19v DC). AC adapters are available all over the web as are batteries.

Bought a verizon hd 6200 dvr on e-bay

You can't because these units are not owned by the customers, they belong to Verizon, and the customers are renting the units. They are not to be sold, they are to be returned. The box is probably still under the customer (DELIQUENT acct) and he never returned it and he sold it on ebay to get some money to pay his deliquent bill....Sorry!

Body replacement...

The top one works well for me and its cheep but lacks portability.
a new body would likely cost more than its worth and have the same defects.
