Default Power Button Wire to Motherboard.. ?

im not sure if this topic is meant to go here but ah well.

Anyways, my power button on the wire broke today, is there any place where i can get these from just a new complete wire and a button to turn it on. as long as it connects to the motherboard and can just click the button to turn it on. ill show you a picture of what wire i mean

Mobile Phone Camera sucks, but gets my point across of what i need lol

Is the button broken or the wire broken? If it is the wire cant you just put it back together with a little solder? sorry I cannot quite tell from your picture.

Just hotwire that baby. Just kidding (not really) I could not find anything quickly that would work for a replacement button. Maybe it is a good excuse for a new case. I would try to rig something with the remnants of your old button. or what was that show oh yeah junkyard wars.

All you need is something to close the circuit between the 2 pins on the motherboard. If it was a new machine I would be a bit careful but what the heck.

Agreed. Can get a switch for a couple bucks at radioshack.
