Gateway Model #0019401806 - Power Button in 'off' position

\015 The tower of my Gateway Model #0019401806 has a power button on the front side of the case and is stuck in the 'off' position. The plastic button piece needs to be replaced - but I don't know with what - also I can't seem to gain access to the back of this front panel case. Any ideas how I can get to this to fix it and maybe replace it?\015\012\015\012Thanks.\015

Hello There
\015\012This is reasonably straight forward problem to solve. The front cover on your unit comes off. These are either stuck on with clips so it just needs to be pulled out, there might be some hook clips which you might have to lift and then pull out the front facia. with regards to the button if you are lucky it might be something that might release itself after you have removed the front cover but if it is damaged than you can replace it with any simple On/Off (I/O) switch. You should be able to get one from any electrical component store.
\015\012Hope this helps.
The power button alone is not sold, and not all cablinets mount the same kind of power switch.

To fix it properly you need to replace the computer case that is not an expensive part: Amazon.com: Computer Cases: Mid-Tower, Server, Full-Tower, Desktop .

To find a temporary runaround fix you can remove a switch with the two wires and the small connector from an old coumputer, hook it to the motherboard, and instead of mounting it on the cabinet front, as they usually do not match, leave the button out, with the wires popping up from underneath the case on one side.
