My name is ArmyMason this isn't a big issue and it can be fixed. If you have a screw driver open the case by removing the screws in the back. if the computer is running tell it to shut down if it wants to boot back up pull the plug. Now with the case off, the front panel has clips on the inside of the case all you have to do is pop off the front panel. Pop out the button, the switch to turn on the computer should be attached to the case where the button is suppose to line up with on the panel. If the button is broken just leave it out put the front panel back on and put the case back together. Now see if you can turn on the computer without the button. If you cant reach it try poking something small in there to push the button. If you want to replace the button, I would check ebay or craigslist for a replacement case, they should be cheap. Also you dont nessessary need the exact model as long as they look the same it should fit.

Hope this helps,
