I have a HP 753n w/XP pc that doesnt do anything when I push the power button. It doesn't even click when I push it like it normally did. Is there a reset somewhere I'm not seeing? Or is the power button shot, or the whole thing?
Thanks, tg5398

If you cannot hear the switch click when you press it, then there is a possibility that switch is broken or connector cable is loose. Open the case and check the connector cable which connects the power switch to motherboard is connected properly.

If the power switch is damaged then you can get a space one like this one : http://www.cables4computer.com/Cases_and_E...wer_Switch.html

Your computer may have a push button power switch on the back side of the computer in the power supply. If you don't see the switch back there then you don't have one.

Sounds like your switch may be broken.

That's what I'm leaning towards, as well.
