Case Power Button Problem

  1. Hey,

    I've been having trouble with the power switch on my Cooler Master Centurion 5 case. It seemed to be working fine for a short while, then at one point my computer randomly turned off. When I tried to turn it back on the computer would boot up and then shut off 3 seconds into it. It was acting as if I was simply holding the button down and then doing the standard ATX delay to shut it off. I disconnected the switch from the mobo and shorted the pins to boot up just to be sure and as I suspected, everything works fine. I left it off for a day or two and tried again with the same problem. It seems like it's working for a short while and then without warning it shuts off again. Cooler Master has said they would provide me a new one, but I was wondering if there is perhaps a way to fix it without having to send parts back and forth. Any thoughts are appreciated.
