Where can I order a replacement power button?

My mothers PC has a bad power switch, its the same switch used for both power and reset in my Kingwing and Enlight cases so they seem pretty standard.

However I am having trouble locating the parts online. Maybe I should be trying an electronics store rather than a computer store?

Anyone know of a site that sells suck parts?

PS I already tried radioshack's online catalog, no joy :(

  1. Ah, the micro-switch. How much would you give me for one, with lead?

  2. Just have two wires coming out of the front of the case, for that 'Ghetto Hotwire' look. Touch them together, and way-hey! it starts up... :eek:

  3. Directron seems (from what I can make out from the small picture) to sell them, but there is a $10 minimum.

    I think I will yank one out of my cases and look for a switch the next time I am at a computer store.

    Bare wires are a bad idea, expecially if you have the power button set to automatically shutdown your PC without asking.

    I have used a radioshack curicuit board mounted to the fron t of the case for the buttons and leds, when I was too lazy to solder.

    Now when I am too lazy to solder I use butt connectors.
