How to Remove the Side Panels of My Computer Chassis!!!

Right, today we are going to get at the inards of our computer system. This is done for a number of different reasons these being any-thing from upgrading the RAM to cleaning/servicing the computer. Once accomplished we will then we able to get at those components inside the computer system.

You will need a phillips/plus shaped screw driver, you may also need a flat/minus shaped screw driver as well.
When looking at your computer from the rear you will notice that your computer chassis has two side panels. Both a left side panel and a right side panel.
In most cases both of these panels can be removed to access the computer components within.

Now if we move to the rear of your computer chassis you should notice two, some-times three screws holding each panel in place.

Using a phillips/plus shaped screw driver, remove each screw, being sure not to lose them. Put them in a place where they can not get lost, I some-times use a plastic screw divider.

Once the screws are removed from the Chassis, you can now slide each panel towards the rear of the chassis.
This is acomplished by standing at rear of the computer chassis and then using your fingers and/or the flat shaped screw driver ( to pry the panel from the chassis at the rear) now slide each panel towards the rear of the computer chassis. Which would be towards you when standing at the rear of the computer chassis.

Now once they have slid all the way back simply pop them off by pushing them to either the right for the right side panel and to the left for the left side panel. (The rear is the view point)

There that should do the trick, leaving you to enjoy and discover the inards of your computer system!

Wishing you All of the Best!

My laptop after being turned on a blue screen appears and then shuts down

There are many reasons this can be happening. Try starting the computer in Safe Mode with Networking and see if the problem still exists. If not that means there's a problem with the start up boot process. Questions to consider: How old is the machine? Have you done all your updates? Possible virus. What exactly does the Blue Screen read? Is it a quick blue screen then restarts or does the blue screen stays? We are computer service company that offers remote free diagnosis.

The odds your sensor is bad is about 30%

The odds you have internal trans wear & damage
is about 70%

Sensors only report mechanical things that are not right
when the vehicles computer scans them,that said, sensors
do fail, BUT you use the codes to diagnose the system
& component test

Codes DO NOT indicate a failed part or need to replace any

All parts have to be tested & fail, or why would you waste money
throwing parts at a problem

We did that in that 1960's & got away with it,not with today's

my pc has become very very slow

I am amazed though your PC is 3rd level pentium but woirks fine. However today you find something different from your normal use of your PC. Hqave you tried disk clean up or defrag? To do this go to start menu and go to accessories. scroll down to look for defrag to clean up files.
Second, you have perhaps installed files which became very congested to your 40GB HDD and very difficult for a little memory and a processor to move to its normal processing. If you would have an external storage of your files you can do that so that the PC can move fast since during its start up, processor and other hardware can function well.
Last, is to clean up cookies. to do this is to right click internet explorer then choose properties then clean up cookies.
Hope this can help you.
