Hi :welcome: to BC,

 

Sometimes computers from big brands like Acer use some exotic connectors but I suspect it's not your case and the repair should be simple and not expensive but it's probably best to visit some trustful repair shop.

 

In many cases it's only a matter of replacing a cable like this:

Thank you for answering, we don't have many repair shops here, can you recommend somewhere  to purchase this? Thank you

Sorry I can't also I did some search and Acer could be using something more exotic like this:

If it's the case you need to open the machine and check if the problem is with the little button on the board or with the plastic part of the button on the case.

If you do not have the PCB switch as SleepyDude posted above you can get the standard switch with the header connector on ebay.
