Case power switch question
A guy at work was asking me about his old computer. Seems that the power button was messing up, in that he couldn't just push it and the comp come on... he had to hold it a second.
That second eventually became two, then three, on up to ten. Now, it doesn't work at all.
He has since bought a new computer, but was wondering about getting the old one back up to give to his girlfriend... and to get his pix he had saved from his digital camera that are on the hard drive (he said around 1000 or so).
So, does it sound like he needs to have the switch replaced? That's my thought, but I figured I'd ask to get a general consensus. I figured he could get a new, spiffier case (and PSU) so his girlfriend would be pleased.
