Compaq EVO D510 desktop (on/off button (micro switch) not turning on)

By markwh ·
Guys....this Compaq D510 SFF desktop will not power up. It has been doing this for a while. Sometimes I am able to get power to start, by turning off at the wall, pressing on/off button and turning on at wall. The on/off button rarely works.

I have read the posts on suspect power supplies and bridging the switch. However, this computer motherboard does not have the traditional switch with wires. It has a micro switch.that is soldered to the motherboard. So I am reluctant to jump power.

Has anyone had similar problems? Is this micro switch normally a problem? Thanks

I just saw your posting. I have the same issue with my D510. I was told to try different memory. That did not fix the problem. Did you figure anything out? What where you talking about the micro switch? I pulled the adapter off of the board and jumped across the two jumpers. It just lit the middle light up just like the switch does. Send me any info if you can.
thanks cfuller777
