Youll need to open your tower to fix this, if you open your tower and look on your motherboard youll find an area that has 2 lines of pins with about 6-8 pins on each line (diferent motherboards vary)
you will see next to the pin the corosponding text on the motherboard (HDD etc) see the image attached. you might not find your block connector in the same place but you get the idea.

How do i remove the front cover of my dell computer tower 8250

Not sure if you can pull the front cover off this particular model, but to open the PC:

  1. Make sure the PC is powered off and disconnected from the AC outlet.

  2. If facing the front of the PC, lay it on its right-hand side, so it lies flat.

  3. At the back of the PC at the top left, there is a release button. There should also be a release button on the bottom of the PC near the rear (slightly indented into the bottom). While pressing both of the release buttons, pull the cover upwards and the case will open like a clam.

Set the cover aside.

Raise the wire latch in front of the hard drive mounting area.

Grab the tab on the hard drive tray and slide it back out of the mounting area. Remove the screws that secure the hard drive to the tray with a Phillips screwdriver.

There are four screws, one on each corner.

Slide the hard drive out of the tray.

The PC on/off button (push in button) is stuck & the PC lights go into blink mode.

Most newer PC Towers have a front panel that can be removed exposing the push button mechanism. Check to see if yours does. If so remove the the front panel/bezel. You will see the mechanism that actually pushes the on and off button post. Check the spring mechanism to see if it may be broke or just out of alignment. If you are unable to remove the front cover/bezel then the switching mechanism is inside the tower and should be taken to a repir shop for repair or replacement.

The battery in the HDD1630 can be changed, but it's a bit fiddly to do.

Remove the hex screw from the back of the casing.

Gently lever the back cover off by insert a small flat blade or metal strip in between the front and back cover at the top. (Do not try to pull it off from the bottom.)

Tape along the buttons and switches down both sides of the player, so they don't fall out when you remove the front cover.

Undo the four cross head screws in the corners of the inner panel.

Gently ease the inner workings away from the front casing. Note the ribbon cable to the front panel.

Ease the buttons on both sides away from the inner casing. They are only stuck down with double sided tape.

Lift the metal plate away from the battery and hard disc, taking care not to pull the microphone out of the plastic end cap. (If it is pulled out, it can be stuck back in place on re-assembly.

Carefully lift the battery away from the board from the end opposite the wire. Pull the battery connector out of the socket and replace.

Re-assembly is the reverse procedure.
