Re: power button pushed through
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

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.
First check the power cord. make sure it is plugged in properly.
Second. see if there is a switch on power supply in the back.
Third answer these questions
Are there any noises made when you push the button ?
Are there any lights on?
Has anything been splilled inside the PC?
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.
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...
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.
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.
