Hmm. On my 2500 there is a SMALL hole in the bottom with the word reset near it. It is very small so look carefully.

I wrote to Danielle. She claimed to have found the "Factory Reset Button" and pushing it reset the computer to the state in which it was upon purchase. No details were provided as to where exactly this button was located... It's a mystery...

Heh - yes, save our babies ; )

I dunno - you read some pretty strange things around here from time to time. I'd read that one, and thought the baby monitor suggestion held merit. I used to pick up taxi broadcasts from my old stereo speakers (with the stereo turned off)

Anything is possible now, too bad that
easy button can't fix all problems.

Pull off the side panel, the reset button is on the mainboard in the lower right hand corner, yellow button marked CMOS. Push and hold for count of ten.
start the computer, then you will have to set the date and time in the BIOS.
