I have an extra dell optiplex gx1 motherboard and im trying to use up some of my old ram and drives in my basement, and i'm trying to get this dell running, however, i do not have the power/reset switch part, only the motherboard.
So is there a way i can turn this on without the switch? The power button on one of my other PCs broke off before, and i just ripped the wires out and simply touched them together to power on my PC until i got a new case, but it does not appear that can do that with the optiplex.
I know, i could easily get the switch, but i dont really feel like dumping money into this old thing, and its always better to find a free solution.
If its not humanly possible, does anyone know where i could get the switch or a whole case for really DIRT CHEAP?
