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 http://us.kensington.com/html/1434.html . 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.

Forget Apple and their cynical, heavy-handed tactics! Currently you get 15 GB of free storage on ¨Google Drive¨: https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2409676?hl=en
The only requirement is a (free) G-mail account.
Google Drive, in addition to being an upload area for a large number of common file types is also a suite of very sweet applications, which are like simplified versions of Microsoft Office (the other evil giant), however they have integrated sharing and granulated permissions and many cool features Office doesn't have.
I think some day Google will also go to the dark side, but for now they are ¨good guys¨ like Apple was back in like, 1992.
Hope that helps!
