Okay, so I just recently moved to a different city and when I set up my computer, I noticed the ON/OFF switch on the back of my case for the CPU had snapped off. I believe it was in the OFF position when I was moving. 

 

Is there any way to push something back into the ON position without the flip switch? Thanks in advance!

Those switch/power connector assembles usually have an integral fuse.  The switch is energized with 110 volts AC, don't do anything but replace it.  Don't stick anything in the open area to try and move any parts.  This voltage is lethal, don't mess with fate.

If you can solder, you might be able to rob a switch off an old psu and install it onto your psu, the wiring to the switch is normally soldered on so you'll need to de-solder the old switch, pop it off the psu case and solder the new switch the wiring

I ordered a new one :D Newegg had a deal for a nice PSU going for $60 with a $25 rebate. I'd rather not mess with the interior components.

What brand name did you get?

XFX. I believe it is made by Seasonic, so it should be solid.
