Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I am trying to remove the side cover from a Dell Dimension 3000 to replace RAM. Don't seem to be able to work it out. Can you help please?


Answers :

Can you move the little black lever on the back by the PCI cards? I seem to remember it moves upwards to unlock the side. Once you've moved that, the side slides back a couple of inches and then lifts off. Put the Dell flat on its side so you can get more purchase to push the side back - it can be hard to start off.
Good luck,
