I can't get an attached picture attachment to upload , but this FileowerMac G4 MDD open.jpg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia should show you. Just to the right of where you see the red and purple power wires curving over is a yellow component, and just below and to its left is a little black box with a white button. That, I believe, is the CUDA (PMU) switch.

Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
