    What are all those tiny little white reset switches inside the mac pro do? Before, I own a QuickSilver and there was only 1 SMC reset switch. I think the Mac Pro have atleast 3 - 4 reset switch. I know the SMC is for when Mac Pro having problem turning on, sometime pressing it will help it power up again. What about the rest of the other reset switch? What does it do?

    Does it do any harm to the Mac Pro if I press all the switches inside? I was curious and press all of it thinking it will help my Mac Pro boot up from a Hard Drive that no longer able to boot up, but later on I find out it's just my Hard Drive that giving problems.

    Thanks

    According to the mac pro service manual the buttons are a SMC reset RTC(Real time clock) reset Also it has a system reset switch which restart the system it is used for diagnostics. Thats all i can find in the manual.
