Dell Dimension 5100 on/off switch

My mom has a Dell Dimension 5100 and the on/off switch to the CPU seems to be bad. Sometimes it turns the computer on, sometimes it doesn't. She thinks she needs a new on/off switch.
I've scoured the net and can't find one anywhere. Some folks sell old ones pulled from working computers on eBay, but none match the 5100.
1. Is it really likely that it's the switch that's bad? The computer does occasionally power up.
2. Where the heck can I find a switch???
