Dell dimension 8400 desktop power switch broken

This may sound odd, but I got mad at my computer for not turning on when a beeping code came on. I then forcefully pushed on the button with all my strength, and now it is broken. The computer was working fine, but now I can't turn it on. Can anyone tell me how to open the front of the case to get to the button?
