Hi guys, I'm trying to do a test boot however I have no idea where my motherboard's power switch is. I have Asrock z75 Pro , and I've chekced the manual several times but I still can not find it. Can someone help me? Thanks!

Motherboards don't generally have power switches on them (I don't remember ever seeing one, in my own experience but there may be, on some very high end boards).

What are you trying to do? Test it outside the case? If so, you'll need to short the Power Switch pins with a screwdriver (or something similar).

OK, the FP (Front Panel) Pins are right below the Power LED on the bottom right hand corner of the board. There are 9 pins total and you'll need to look at the top row (4 pins). The PWRBTN# pins are the two pins on the right. Just short those two.

I think he just means where the power connector for the front of the case is. If you find that then all you have to do is short the two pins together just for a second (like pushing power button) and it should start up.

1. it wasn't "scold" but meant as a chuckle
2. i wasn't aware there was any "rule"
3. how much caffeine have we had today?
