Need replacement power switch

Pavilion a6700f
Linux

My system seems to be stuck in sleep mode. Yellow LED remains lit after all troubleshooting steps have been followed. There are no beeps. Power supply was replaced years ago with a Corsair CX430. Power is getting to rear fan, but I cannot wake the pc up. Wondering if a replacement power switch could do the trick. There was never any problems with the system.

IMHO, doubtful.

 

More likely is a failing power-supply or a failing motherboard.

 

Obviously, it's easier/cheaper to experimentally try a different power-supply than it would be to try a different motherboard.

 

At power-on time, can you enter BIOS SETUP mode?
