Thread: Problem with turning on the computer

  1. #1

    Default Problem with turning on the computer

    Last year the power button of the chasis of my computer got malfunctioned and I took it to the servicing center where they simply changed the restart button's function as power button. It hasn't caused any trouble since then but lately I have been noticing that I need to press the power button (former restart) two-three times to turn my computer on and this is the same symptom that occured couple of times last year till one day the main power button refused to work anymore. If this restart button also stops working, is there any way to change the switches or do I have to purchase a new chasis?

    Your reset button is wearing out too.

    Best to do some soldering and get yourself a new switch for your Chassis, or it's a good excuse to change your Chassis.

    It would be better if you post a picture/model of your chassis as I have noticed you currently do not have your specs filled out.

    @Fox Mulder My chassis is Thermaltake Core V31. Is replacement switches available for this case in Bangladesh? I like this chassis and I don't want to change it.

    You'll probably have to DIY replace the switches, which shouldn't be too costly if you can find someone to solder the switches into places.

    @Fox Mulder I will take it to servicing center again, I just hope they can do it for me. I am bit disappointed to be honest, it has been barely a year since I bought this computer and I've already faced such annoyance twice.
