Well, I love my new Hp Pavilion Desktop TPO1-0xxx, Product # 6XQ50AA#ABA... Ser. # 2M00383BCG. EXCEPT the power switch is already acting funky. (Failing occasionally) I contacted HP and was advised to send it to HP service center for free repair. I received shipping label and box to ship for repair, all free. Trouble is, The repair center seems to be not very favorable. All this is to say, I want to order the switch and install it myself. What I would very much is suggestions as where to purchase the switch. Any advice will be greatly be appreciated...Thanks...Jim

Since this is an OEM, I would buy it directly from HP or a supplier that can get OEM parts.

I have a suggestion if you can't find a power switch. An after market case. Then just move everything from the HP to the new case. The only thing you would need to make sure of is the mobo pin layout. As OEM sometimes have a different pin layout. It made a difference decades ago but I'm not sure that still holds today.

Afaik, HP have their own specs for their boards (proprietary) and they won't fit in an after market PC case?.

Jim, check the form factor of the mobo and see if it is indeed a normal ATX/Mini ATX or ITX format that will fit in a normal case!.

Is this your model ? (look at page 8 for the mobo layout). :)

Yes, I think this is my model....I am on the trail to a modification switch. It seems to be only a momentary switch. Thanks so much for your help....Jim

Right, the ATX style motherboards use a momentary switch connected to the motherboard, the older AT boards had the switch wired directly to the power supply.
