Just had a power outage and after the power came back on my pc wouldn't start. So after looking around on my laptop found out that I had to take out my p1 connector from my power supply. Sounded easy enough ,but no I had to do a lot of other things before I could take out the p1. Had to take out my hard drive since it was directly above the p1 connector blocking access. Freaking had to remove the front panal to remove hardrive. Screws where difficult to take out cause A one was covered by plastic(thanks compact good design) B godam other one was covered by the case itself so I had a tight unscrew sideways. After 1:30 hours I was finally able to disconnect the p1 connector with pliers case is also small as hell so I got quite a few cuts and scratches trying to maneuver my hands in the case.

Thanks for taking the time to tell us your endeavors. What kind of computer is this can you provide a model number so it appears in search results?

I can appreciate that kind of effort... I sliced one of my fingers 2 months ago trying to open an HP slimline PC. Thankfully I only got my A+ on the outside of the case, and not on any of the components. But the slimline boxes are so cramped it may as well be a laptop when it comes to taking one apart and then putting it back together. Have to take out the DVD drive just to get to the hard drive, just to remove the inner framework, just so you can get to the motherboard to add more ram or even to do a diagnostic on something.

I say ole chap, job well done!
