Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

Dimension 2400 off / on switch

Dell is directing me towards a new bezel (which is out of stock). It is not clear to me that it includes the actual wired switch underneath - which is all I need. Any part numbers or suggestions?

    Thanks for your help. Months ago the on button in the bezel
    became difficult. I put a little shim inside and the button
    worked fine. Lately it got dicey again. With the bezel off,
    it works ok. Sometimes I have to push twice to start up - but not
    too cantankerous. When I shut down via restart, it start right up
    no problem. I assumed that the mechanical part of the button
    underneath , ie the one with the actual wires attached, is at
    fault. Maybe a spring getting is losing its tension. What
    do you think?

The Front Bezel DOES NOT contain the On/Off power switch. If you remove the side cover of the computer and look behind the Bezel, you’ll see a green bracket which contains the power switch. Don’t know the part number but here’s the link to your model:
Just out of curiosity, what is the problem you’re having and what are the symptoms?
In 5 years of doing warranty home service for Dell I found only 1 power switch to be actually defective.

2 megs of your ram have been diverted to Video. the 2400 has onboard intel video, and the BIOS of your system has seperated 2 megs from your system to operate the onboard GPU.
