HP Pavilion A1230n "On Button" (1319 Views)
02-15-2009 11:55 PM
The little plastic piece that holds the "On Button" in place has broken - so now I have to turn the computer on with the eraser end of a pencil at an angle down through the hole. No one seems to be able to supply this small plastic piece but they tell me I need to order a new bezel (which is the entire front piece) for about $75.00 - that's rather expensive just to replace a little plastic part. The piece that broke has broken in three places and cannot be repaired - does anyone have any suggestions as to where (other than computer repair shops looking for junked computers) I might find a part to repair this computer. It is still an excellent machine and runs perfectly - it just now looks like a piece of junk !!!!

HP was of little to no help and wanted over $75.00 plus shipping for the part - I ordered it from the ebay address you recommended (new part) for $24.00 plus shipping - thanks !!! All I really needed was the little plastic part that broke - but I'm having to replace the entire front
