I have a Windows 7 64-Bit with 8GB of ram and 1 TB of Hardrive and 3GB Nvidia something and the power button had a problem it took a while to start up I had to literally constantly press or hold down the button and then soon it sparked and will not turn on ever since. Is there a way to bypass the button? I tried to get to it by moving the CD & Hardrive holder but the bolt is destoried and I can't open it. Reply back!

The button runs two wires to a header on the motherboard, you can probably find a button with the right leads on ebay for cheap and connect a new one, or you can just short the two pins with something to simulate a button press (which will start your PC assuming it still is working)

Good idea, who really uses the reset switch anyway? :)

The reset switch reroute is a great idea.
