The front panel should come off where the plastic meets the metal part of the computer tower..u may be able to take the button back out and still use it..if it doesent work when u get it out u may have to look on the motherboard on the bottom right side to see if its plugged in it is a little black rectangle it plugs into to pins if u look really close it will say like pwr sw or something like that

Dell unstick power button on PC desktop


It sounds like either the push button assembly is broken on the front bezel cover, or the power switch is broken. Follow these steps to take the covers off.

Front Bezel: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/insp620620S/Insp620/en/sm/bezel.htm#wp1181855

Side access cover: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/insp620620S/Insp620/en/sm/cover_re.htm#wp1193123

Now look for either a broken piece on the bezel push button assembly or a broken power switch inside the computer case.

Compaq Presario s3310cl starts when hooking in power plug and will not shutoff using power button. Just started doing this today. Someone said to unhook everything and hold power button in for 20 seconds...


The On/Off switch is mounted inside of the Case Front Bezel. It is
very unlikely that it is broken. The problem is the front bezel
plastic switch (which is not really the switch) is more like a cap or a
knob that comes in contact with the actual switch is somehow broken.
You can remove the front bezel to see I am talking about.
Manually push On/push Off on the actual switch and your system will turn
On and Off like it should.

The power button completely broke off my emachine T3090 desktop. How can I get computer to start-up without this button?


You should be able To just reach in there and press it anyways. It depends what emachines uses, but normally it is a little white plastic thing that the button pushes, because it does nothing itself.

Got a machine but it keeps switching off after few minutes could it be power switch on front if so where can i get one


It isnt the power switch, it's the power supply itself. You need to get a new one from bestbuy.com, Tigerdirect.com or Geeks.com.

Emachines are notorious for their bad power supplies, and they usually burn out the motherboard when they die. Stop pushing that button and get a new Power supply before your board messes up.

Green light on MB but will not power up at all nothing, even if I hold the button on. Emachine T3958 about 5 years old.


first thing I would try is a new power supply. if that doesn't do it for you, it's most likely your motherboard is bad.

I cannot boot up the computer. When I push the front power button, nothing happens. When I flip the switch on the back, or unplug it for 30 secs and plug it back in, the fan starts up and a yellow light...


I had this happen to my emachines T1842 about a year ago. I replaced the power supply and it worked fine. It was about 25 bucks but fixed my problem. Make sure the red switch on the back hasnt been messed with. it should be on 115. If you have moved it, it may have blown a fuse inside the power supply.

I have a 3507 emanchines computer.When I push start button all it does is show green light clicking . Then it will stop and the white light will below will blink 7-8 times. The green light will click about...


sounds like an issue with your motherboard or something like that...try resetting the motherboard by unplugging the power, taking out the battery of the motherboard inside the computer and pressing the power button several times to drain the power. then put the battery back in, plug in the power cord and try to start it up. if it doesnt work then ur gonna have to contact emachines because ur mobo is either defective or broken...

Machine won't turn on . Period


Could be a bad power supply or a dead cpu. I would start by changing power supplies with one that is working if you have a spare computer with an ATX power supply. It is nolt very common but could be as simple as a defective power switch. How does the switch feel when it is pushed? Does it spring back or feel like something is broken. Most of the time when I have repaired a PC that does absouloutley nothing when the power button is pressed....dead CPU. You could also try leaving the plug disconnected for 20 minutes....maybe something in the powers supply is heating up. They will store power even when the computer is off.

Computer not turning on.


You will get the on/off switch in the market. The 3V battery that you see inside has nothing to do with the on/off switch. That battery saves your BIOS setting in CMOS when your computer is turned off.

Thanks
