Broken on and off button on tower - PC Desktops


Answers :

If you open the case, you'll see 2 wires going to the power switch.  Hook those 2 wires up to pretty well any switch you like (replace the switch with a funky matching one or just duct-tape a light switch to the front of the case).  It's not major voltage, so pretty well anything will do.\012

Pull the lead out the back first though, best to be sure.
