There is a way to bypass the switch and start the computer, just to verify that the switch is the actual problem....the only thing is it requires you to open up the computer case. If you are not comfortable doing this, I would take it to a computer shop. I don't want to see you damage your computer!

Here are the directions:

  1. Open up the computer case
  2. Find the wire that is connected to the front switch
  3. Follow the wire to the motherboard and disconnect it from the 2 pins it is connected to
  4. Take a screw driver and touch both pins at the same time (Picture Below). This will create a connection, as if you pushed in the switch and should start the computer.

Now if the computer doesn't start , then you know the problem is not the switch and will have to further troubleshoot it. If it does start, try going to e-bay and searching for a replacement switch

Samsung main power supply desk top monitorS20A350BS desk top


you must measure the output from your power supply see the diagram attached in the box. If some Voltage like +5vdc is missing you must replace the power supply. If the Monitor NOT turn ON try to test in another computer more easy. or go to the repair shop.Use the bottoms from the monitor and execute from the MENU make test.
God bless you

sounds like the lid switch is jammed on- you can try to spray it with WD 40 or replace it it usually requires taking the machine apart to get at the wiring. Easy fis, just need patience. the switch should be able to be ordered online.
