ok i have a DELL monitor. the one with the 4 small buttons (which look as if they are 1/2 cm in diameter) on the bottom right corner.

i think the power button is messed up because the cap of the power button feels loose and after some pushing it wont turn on (the button cant even be pressed in) cuz the cap has rotated too far to the left (but it never rotates to the right). so i just managed to use a few toothpicks to move it back into its upright position but it is still loose. is there any way to secure it without damaging any internal parts? or is there any other fix for it?

Messing with the insides of LCD monitors isn't a real good thing to do. If it's still under warranty - get Dell to fix it. Otherwise take it to someone with experience with monitors (and who guarantee's their work).
