Specs: t2692 emachines, tower computer

The power button on my computer is stuck, and I can not push it to turn the computer on. I have no clue what to do, the computer works perfect, I have no clue how it happened. How do I get the power button to "unstick". It is a push button, and when I push it, and pry it with a screwdriver, it moves a little, but will not spring back out!! Thanks!

It's a facade panel. It pops off or has screws holding it on on most cases.

Should be either clips or screws holding the front cover once you get the sides off,
If not find a tech store

I know with some Gateways, this would require a newer bezel, hopefully that is not the case here or else you might end rigging up a button power the crude way.
