Removing sides on a Dell Dimension 2400 tower

\015 Hey I purchased a memory module for my Dimension 2400 so I can upgrade it but I just quickly looked at the case an not sure how to remove case sides! I see some screws an rivits. Also some things that look like a button... Any help would be greatly appreciated! I read several bulletins an they all said it was real easy!!\015

Answers :

Lay the case on its side and depress the "buttons", there are is one on either end. The case opens like a **** shell, if you start to open it and it feels very heavy on the top, stop and turn it over so the motherboard is toward the floor, that will make it easier on you.
