You will probably have to remove the front panel and pop the button back out from inside. Sometimes it is caused by dirt or something sticky on someone's finger making the button stick. Try carefully cleaning around the power switch with a Q-Tip and some rubbing alcohol.

You will have to get your power button unstuck. I do not know what type of button you have but if you would like to at least get your PC on without it instantly turning off, you can remove the power switch connector from the motherboard. You will eventually need to have the switch unstuck, or replaced though.

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.

I have a Dell Demension 5100, and the power button got stuck. By stuck, I mean that the power button is pushed in, but not released. It's stuck as if you pressed the power button, but did not release...


if your PC have restart button then open your PC and check the power cable slots and change them into a reset mode removing reset cable to reset slots and attach to power slot. Then you can power your pC with reset button. If you can open front case then you can outside the button .

How to fix a dell monitor dimension 2400 power button broken


The last guest left us hanging with, "easy fix" so, I ventured ahead to see what I could see by opening up my lcd, which was a puzzle in itself. After UNPLUGGING the monitor and removing the stand and the 4 obvious screws in the back, turn the monitor onto its back and placing your palms against one side of the monitor, and using your FINGER TIPS, gently pull back the plastic lip away from the LCD screen. Move along the lip, doing this a little bit at a time. You'll hear and feel it snap loose. Repeat on the remaining three sides. It may take a few rotations to free all the sides, doing a little at a time, so as not to put undo stress on the plastic that is not yet loose. The bottom lip from behind which lies the offending "on/off" button will not move as freely as the other sides because of the ribbon cord that attaches the circuit panel to the main body. So STOP pulling when you feel it become taught and carefully turn the monitor onto its face to complete the face's removal. Undo the cloth tape that secures the ribbon cable to the monitor. This will give you the necessary slack you need to do your dirty work. BTW, we're not disconnecting the ribbon cable from its connections- that would be bad - just remove that haphazardly placed piece of tape used to keep the thing snug and save it for when you're ready to close it back up. OKAY! There a four tiny screws that affix the green circuit board. You'll need a thin, jewelers type phillips head or a one from a synthe-sized tool set to remove these. Now, if your issue is like mine, you'll see when you again carefully remove the circuit board, that the on/off button has cracked off of the piece that holds it. This is why the button remained stuck in one positon when it was depressed. Re-align it so that it is uniform to the other buttons and place a few small strips of cut electrical tape to hold it in place to the end where it broke off. Crazy glue or the like won't give the button the flexability it needs and will probably just crack again. What the tape (I layered 3 strips) will do, once the circuit board is scewed back, is allow the button to return to position after it's pushed. I just did this and so far, after a dozen on/offs it's still working. Good luck. Go have a beer.
