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.

How do I remove the harddrive from the HP Slimline S3100n?


Shut down the power to your HP Slimline computer.

Remove any memory cards or other devices from the desktop.

Disconnect the power cord and peripheral devices from the computer.


Lay the computer flat on your work surface.

Remove the three screws on the rear of the computer cover with a Phillips screwdriver.


Slide the cover toward the back of the computer then lift it off the tower.

Set the cover aside.

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


Pull the cables straight out of the connections to disconnect them from the hard drive. Unscrew the retaining screw in the side of the mounting tray with a Phillips screwdriver.


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.

How do I remove the front tower panel to access the power button for replacement in my emachines T6212? Thanks!


Most front panels are held on by friction plugs that have a spring like function that expands into the hole. Gently pull on one end of the front panel and it comes off.

Basically my on buttong got stuck and when I was trying to get it out the front cover thing came of. Together the wires also came out.On the end of the wires it has...(POW S/W),(POW LED),(HDD LED). Please...


Ha Ha Ha, well your front cover thing is where your power on button and LED lights reside. the POW is your power wire that connects to your power switch you pried out of your front cover thing, or your power switch. Your POW LED is the wire that connects to the light that lets you know your computer is on and running on your front cover thing. and of course the other wire connects to the other LED light on your front cover thing. Good Luck. also, you can change the wires around until you get it right.
