Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
The on off button is broken and I shut down on screen not realizing the button was broken. Now I can't restart the computer. It looks as though the push button was snapped off. There is a small half circle opening but I'm affraid to stick something in it not knowing if I will get shocked or not.
Call Dell sale if the computer is out of warranty or call technical support if in warranty and get the button replaced. As a fix for now use a screw driver to push the button in adn make sure you do not touch the screw driver metal part or you'll get a shock is the screw driver is touching the wire in the button. You can also short (make a direct contact of the two cables) the cables coming to the button once to get the system started but dont keep them short.

You probably won't get shocked but you will have to replace the button.
