  1. Greetings,

    I just purchased a dell dimension 3000 motherboard to replace my existing dell 2350 board. I was able to mount the new board but my only problem is the power switch button connection on the 2350 is not compatible with the new one. Is there any way I can power up the computer without the power switch? I'm looking to buy a power button for the dimension 3000 motherboard but in the mean time, would like to power up my pc since i'm running a web server. Appreciate any reponds.

    you can do it manually by shorting the two pins on the motherboard that would normaly represent the power switch
