Have you ever built a computer without a case or found yourself without a power button? It can be frustrating to have your computer ready to go but not be able to turn it on. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution.
First, consult your user guide to locate the power switch diagram. This will show you where to plug in the power switch if you had one. However, if you don’t have a power switch, you’ll need to do something else.
Find the JFP1 marked switch on the motherboard. This will correspond with nine pins. If you look closely, you’ll see that on the top row, the two right pins are the power switch pins. These are the pins that need to be shorted to turn the system on.
To do this, use a screwdriver or any other metal object to create a connection between the two pins. When you plug it in, this connection will turn your system on. Just make sure your power supply is switched on and plugged in before attempting this.
It’s important to exercise caution when attempting this method. Before making contact with the motherboard with a metal object, touch something metal to discharge any static electricity on you. Additionally, be careful not to touch any other pins while shorting the power switch pins, as this could cause damage to the motherboard.
While this is not a permanent solution, it’s a quick and easy way to turn on your PC without a power button. Hopefully, this tip will come in handy for those who find themselves in this situation.
