So basically, I would just have to replace the entire switch board and maybe the ribbon if that's the problem?


Sorry never seen one of those, I suppose if you disconnect the ribbon and use a multimeter it should be possible to test the button.

I'm not sure what a multimeter is but I might not have to do that. I have one of the new RAM sticks installed and the computer has been running fine for more than an hour now. Maybe it was the RAM after all. I suppose the computer wanted a RAM stick installed to power on. Both of my old RAM sticks must be bad because I tried swapping them. I wonder what killed them? Anyway, I'm going to let the computer run for a bit longer then I'm going to try to reinstall Win XP.
