Where's the reset button on my HP tower

the word reset has many meanings, in terms of a PC./
no PC stated, just the word tower. that too means little
the PC has a real model number in the service tag sticker.
mine is top front of tower.(mine is workstation xw4600, or Z600)
there are vast models of HP desktop PC l boxes.
some have a hardware reset button on the front, marked so.
then there is PassWord reset button on the mobo(inside mother board)
then there is RTC CMOS NVRAM reset button on mobo.
and many other classes of software resets using virtual buttons.
BIOS resets and OS resets vast.

why not start of by stating the problem first.? so we can be on the same page, and answer accurately.
telling the OS helps too , windows what?
here is what the tag looks like

Since installing my netgear wireless dualband router WNDR3400, the only way I can turn my tower off is to unplg the power supply. Please help

your pc problems have nothing to do with your new router. Your pc sounds like the mobo is not sending a kill signal to the power supply. You can either re-flash you mobo bios or try a patch for windows. Most likely this is not a fixable problem as the cost to fix it will be as high as a new pc.

Motherboard replace processor cpu i have an hp pavilion a820n tower with no cpu or power supply can u tell me what kind i need?

the processor to fit the mobo is a pentium 4 socket 775. the original was a 3.2G according to the HP website.
most standard 500 watt power supplies should fit.
it does concern me why there is no processor or power supply in it though.
are you sure the mobo is ok? the only reason I would think these parts have been removed is because the mobo is dead and they've been transplanted into something else.

My hp desktop does not TURN on because the chassis fan is not connected.

The computer recognises that a fan is not plugged in via the 3 pin power connectir on the mother board.

Mobo on my rosewill armor mid tower wont function. have repalced mother noard an gpu I do not know what to do it turns on fans spin but no mobo activity

Make sure that your power connectors into the motherboard are all firmly connected. I had the same problem, the solution was that the CPU , 4pin molex connector was disconnected.This connector may initially be 6 or 8 pins but the 4 can be separated from the others. This should solve your issues.

I assume you mean the HDD,reset,on switch etc where they plug onto the mobo.

Most mobos are labelled on the board but you will need good eyesight to read. They are labelled HDD, RESET, SPEAKER etc.

If not simply look up mobo manual from vendors site. You will need the DELL serial / part number from the old unit though.

It looks like the graphic card is broken on the MB (as far as I can say there is integrated VGA card) or even whole mobo is useless. To test it you need to get some external video card - ISA or PCI based on the specs of this mobo. Connect monitor to external card and see what's there. If it looks pretty much the same way then you can throw away your mobo.
