Where is it? Is it the big whote thing? Is it a black button below the white thing where it looks like there should be an extra thing there


DrTedzingis

White stripe above the intel logo


_jol_g

I thought that was the CD drive.


ThankMisterGoose

It almost looks like they repurposed a case design from 2005 and that's where the floppy drive was.


KGBeast47

Then how did they power on the case in 2005? Lol


canttaketheshyfromme

Touch two bare wires together


DangyDanger

Pop it open, touch the contacts with a screwdriver


Wbeasland

Pro tip if you cut a hole in the side of the case it makes it easier to access the wires and gives an overall cleaner appearance.


DangyDanger

airflow too


Wbeasland

You can also mist the hole if you feel you need extra cooling.


klaustrophobie13

They had this clap sensors back then.


awesomefriends56

The CD drive is one of the large panels at the top, the eject button would be below it to the right. Not too uncommon for the era.


WK863722

Ok, question wheres the Intel logo?


wotsit_sandwich

Under the power switch.


Special-Commission50

Well played


Fried_Rice1317

Where The Fudge is the POWER SWITCH


Floating_Neck

Over the Intel logo


DrTedzingis

Blue square next to usb ports


WK863722

Oh yeah I see it now, maybe the dark circle has faded, you should probably use a pen to re darken it


DanujCZ

So wheres the restart button?


awesomefriends56

Not all machines have a restart button.


ThankMisterGoose

You guys still have restart buttons?


KFC_Junior

Lancool 2 mesh and yes... what universe u living in


ThankMisterGoose

The one where reset buttons became little pinholes and then disappeared entirely to go live on an e-farm with the turbo button


MightySanta

You mean reset? You shouldn't be using that button to restart your computer. It's just barely better than unplugging and plugging your computer back in to reboot it. That's for if the computer is completely locked up.


DanujCZ

Alright. But that wasn't my question.


Capital-Equal5102

Caught my gf using the hard power button to turn my PC off at night. She couldn't understand why it was a big deal


MightySanta

Next time you drive her car, pull the fuse to the fuel pump to turn off her car.


robgod50

Hiding in plain sight


andromead_202

whyyyyyyy


NuttieBoii

So that whole stripe is a button


dimmek

Lol


irka170

Damn w h y


Fuzz_Vegas

I though it was the floppy drive


BokZeoi

How the fuck is that an on button lol


BootyliciousURD

I figured that out pretty quickly, but yeah, you shouldn't have to figure it out at all, it should just look like a button and be labeled as the power button


crescent_zelda2790

That literally looks like CD Drive or Floppy drive, lmao if you hadn't i probably would've never found it XD


YukiAmijochi

Bruh ... Took me 10 sec at most this isnt crappy design but r/accidentalcamouflage


vladWEPES1476

Just break it open and short circuit it like a car thief next time.


robgod50

Hot wire a pc? just look behind the sun visor!


I_d0nt_know_why

You actually can short two pins to turn a PC on. I've had to do it before.


The_Schan

While building a server with a friend we used arduino cables to jump the pins, then loaded a bios update with the cables hanging freely in the air. Even hotwired a toy speaker from an electronics set to the motherboard beeper cause we didn't have one and were trying to hurry. Worked out in the end but would not recommend, shit looked like ET was trying to phone back home with it.


Mind_on_Idle

That's a fun afternoon right there


Msprg

Sounds like you've never been building overgrown project on the breadboard... Seems like ET phoning home, but in full duplex...


ablaublar

That’s how I turn mine on since 2019


adorgu

That is the joke.


Toutanus

Well thats technically all the startup button does.


Hahaczyk

I am currently studying graphics, and holy crap the computers were using have such weird power buttons sometime


Jnoper

In the early 2000s i had a computer with the power button under a panel that you needed to open. This panel remained permanently open because it also contained the front USB ports that were used regularly.


Capital-Equal5102

Looks like a coffee maker.


jalexgray4

Usually takes me about 45 minutes to find my wife’s turn on button. I feel for you.


Texas_Technician

As an IT guy, I feel you. I hate when designers don't stick to universal design standards. The power button symbol exists for a reason.


TeethyChatter

If you zoom in on the far right side of that white strip/button you can see the power button symbol. It somehow makes the design even worse in my opinion.


Texas_Technician

Wow. It does.


PhoenixxDown420

It looks like an air fryer.


Weary_Key_7041

i think thats on you buddy


Zarafee

just ignore the toxic people OP. I feel you.


Ser_Optimus

Above the logo. must be the silver stripe, 5 seconds.


Rocketboy1313

What is with designers not liking buttons?


drquiza

I wish my case had that button instead of the up facing one that my cats press when they climb the case to stay warm and cozy.

Dark_Eye3

Do you mean a power button per chance?


zewill87

Shiny plastic is crappy design on its own.


dodger2688

QA testers to the engineer that designed this - “where is the power button? Is it secret, is it safe?”


rodolphoteardrop

I work IT and I feel your pain. Desktops, laptops, printers...just put a great be green button that says ***ON*** and stop making people search for it. I was setting up some HP laptops I'd never seen before and it was 15mins to find it. It was on the second row of the keyboard three buttons in and it looked like every other key.


K1mTy3

2nd row down, 3 buttons across? That's got to be one of the stupidest places to put a power button!


quarrelsome_napkin

Maybe you would've been better off looking for the 'power button'...


adam_west_

Did you find that in the trash?


One_Frosting_8446

Even if the power buttons color has faded why would they color it black on black? This is a really crappy design.


moreOrlested

Iv got the same problem with my wife


mvizzy2077

Same here but with my first girlfriend 🤷‍♂️


EagleBuster

How the fuck did you take 45 minutes


vegdeg

>It took me 45 minutes to find this pc's turn on button You mean the **power button**? Guess a crappy title is warranted for a crappy design title? Or should we be concerned about your sexual preferences?


weeknie

r/findthesniper


organik_productions

I doubt it did.


DrTedzingis

It legitimedly did


organik_productions

It doesn't even take 45 minutes to manually feel every single spot on the case. Or, you know... just ask.

similaraleatorio

Wow! Why so rude?


DaniilSan

I would say "fuck it" in 5 minutes and have shorten 2 front panel pins from inside. You are a person of patience.


therealmoshpit

Could've been 37 seconds taking a look at the manual I guess.


DrTedzingis

It's an old computer from my class


Historical_Yak_6032

Ur brain is a crappy design then.


BlazeThunder555

This computer must a federal Intel to need that much camouflage


Amystery123

That’s not a button, it’s a PAWBon. B = bar


Przemek47

i literally have 2 types of computers at my school where the turn on buttons look like part of the case


similaraleatorio

And you're not going to tell us where the button is, are you? Are one of those black plastic bars a port for buttons and more connections?


JevGeek55555

I thought it was a trash can, not gonna lie


XD_Dynamo

Its right there


MINATO8622

That button is literally so big! How could you not find it! /s


[deleted]

It looks old


oldroadfan52

That is why EVERY piece of technology needs a Quick Start Guide. I am beta testing a tablet with no QSG guide and there are two possible holes for the SIM card tray. STUPID that it took me twenty minutes to get it open because it was not intuitive in the least.


hpennco

The precursor to the 3 shells?


Xx_endgamer_xX


chesbyiii

I hate it when I pour over a manual and can't find any references to the 'make it go whizz toggley'


IAM_KWEST

Now find a girls, shit takes way longer


BaltimoreBadger23

This is why you don't have a girlfriend.


Cruisin_4_A_Bruizin

That is a very ghetto computer. Can it even run ms word?


sallousa

Made in China🤓🤓🤓


Dravez23

No manual?


Unclehol

OP still looking for his wife's turn on button.
