Hoping to get some sympathy there....seems like there are lots folks who know what they are talkin about so any help is well appreciated. Story is: Dell dimension 440 from 2001....was ran off a generator which would abruptly kill power to the computer a lot. Think this needs to be mentioned. Started having problems gettting the computer to turn on...resolved it by shaking and beating the hell out of it(Actually it was more of an opening and closing of the housing, ). It actually worked.... about fifty times. Finally it is no more...there it sits...I opened it up, cleaned with compressed air, checked all connections multuple times, took out all PC cards, disconnected all drives, keyboard, mouse, moniter, and nothing but a green light on my mobo, no fans, no beeps...SHOW ME THE WAY!!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.... - could it be that stupid little watchlike battery that has been in there for six years now...) - a bad switch that turns on the computer (not the one on the back of the PSU)....is there a way to override this switch? loop the right wires together? - what else?????
