Gateway Model 0019401806 Tower - Power button fell into case

\015 The power button my Gateway Model 0019401806 is depressed into the opening and I can't find a way to reach it from behind the case to replace it. The position is stuck in the 'off' position. If I could just get it 'on' I would use my powerstrip to control it. Any ideas how to access the back of the tower case (front)?\015\012\015\012Thanks!\015

Answers :

Take the side panels of the case (while unplugged from power outlet), from their you can reach the two tabs on the upper right and left and the plastic front of the tower will come off. When looking at the back of the tower, on the right there are two screws you can turn with your fingers and on the left side there are two screws you'll need a socket wrench for, or pair of small pliers to turn. Once these are off, the side panels will slide out.

\015\012I have the same problem, but cannot find a replacement button, as the reason it fell was the mechanism broke (the external button moves to press a tiny button on the tower itself). So I have to use the computer without the front on and just press the little button on the tower.

\015\012DO NOT use the computer without the side panels off though. I'm not sure about using the computer without the front panel, it seems ok, just looks ugly, but computer works.

\015\012If anyone knows where to find the lever button for these Gateway towers, please let me know. Gateway customer service is useless.
There are tabs inside the case that you depress to pull the front cover off. once pulled off you should be able to replace the switch.
