I had this happen to me just recently. It had to be resoldered and reconnected to the board.
Now first of all this is not a regular pc. This is a gaming pc that my step dad built for me about 2 years ago. It's a sweet system, so I am not going to get a new pc as of yet.
Thing is, I somehow popped the on/off button compeltely off my pc while it was off, and now I cannot turn the bloody thing on for the life of me.
Here is my perdicament:
1) How to fix
2) Where to get a new button (Radio Shack?)
If anyone knows how I can fix this great. I'm not computer componet flummoxed, but I do not want to wipe out the motherboard or hard drive when putting in a new button without suggestions.
P.S. The button was just a little silver pop button. When looking at the PC I can see a silver "hanger" and all that jazz, if that helps!!
