So for some reason my power button on my case is not working... is there an alternate way to turn my computer on and off? Or should I invest in a new case...
Haha, it is also possible he just broke the plastic button that triggers the push switch.. This has happened to me before and i tore the wire out of the front of the case (from the inside) and had the wire hanging out of the front with just the tiny switch turning it off and on.It's just a push switch - you can disconnect the wires from the original and hook it up to any other switch you want, be that a similar make to the original, or a huge red button that sits on your desk. Alternatively you could just leave the wires hanging out and short them together to emulate pressing the button - though I wouldn't recommend that in the long term. Nothing wrong with it though apart from being a bit primitive and risking the wires shorting when you don't want them to!
