Calling all geeks!: I need to turn on my PC.. without a case Tags: Motherboards Cases Last response: March 14, 2009 9:12 AM in Motherboards Share mixednuts March 12, 2009 3:13:26 PM So, obviously, there's no power button. I'm thinking i just have to connect the two pins on the mobo that are for the power switch momentarily and it should turn on.. will this work you think? thanks for the help!

Just be careful and only touch the 2 pins you are supposed to touch! mixednuts March 12, 2009 6:31:59 PM great, thanks Related resources I need to transport a large PC case without a box, how should I do it? - Forum PC without a case (a.k.a test bench) - Forum Stupid question, will my PC turn on without a CPU? - Forum pc suddenly turn of without any warning - Forum building a gamer PC without a case - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Or you could just purchase another switch at any local hardware store. The case should still fully function without the power button. jivdis1x March 14, 2009 4:37:58 AM wire wrap the 2 pin for the power switch on the mobo w/ a small awg(26-30)wire. turn on/off-tap the wires together. Same thing for the reset switch min2max March 14, 2009 9:12:29 AM you can turn it with a screwdriver, you just need to check the correct pins in the mainboard manual. I'm 100% this works.
