Switch has only worked intermittently recently and now refuses to work at all. It is the front panel switch.
Have had a look inside and switch appears to operate physically, even tried an electrical cleaner spray.

Initially pc worked fine and is excellent worker on Office Apps.

is it the switch or could it be the motherboard? you could change the re-set wire for the start-up wire as this switch if you have one does just the same job when you press them they do not remain on, the motherboard acts as the switch. switch only shorts two pins on the motherboard to start it running. on the motherboard these can be found on most boards at bottom right hand corner of the board if you take the left cover off the tower.
