Has anyone broken the reset button on their Chromebox? We're not sure how to proceed from this point. We used a paper clip that was too large and the button is mangled at this point. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Sam,

Fortunately enough for me, I've never had this problem! This may be something you will get some resolution to more quickly if you take it to HP directly.

Thanks, Blake.

We ended up taking the entire box apart, removing the plastic button, and resetting it using a paperclip pushed directly into the reset whole.
