Removing cover from Dell Dimension 8250

How do I remove the cover, I see the release tab on the top near the back which loosens the back, I don't know if the front cover snaps off or
what. I don't want to force something & break it.

Stabalize163,

Dimension desktops usually have a hinged case. With an oval shaped buttton on the top AND bottom. Push both of these buttons and pivot the side panel open. Take it slowly because its usually quite crowded in there and you don't want to pinch your wires/cables between the drive cage and the chasis or end up ripping them out.

Thanks for choosing Fixya

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.

Unable to remove cover from dell dimension 8400 desktop pc


This Dell Support, and the Service Manual for the Dimension 8400,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8400/SM/index.htm

In the Service Manual main menu, left-click on - Opening the Computer Cover

1) Computer off, and unplugged from power. (Always unplug the power cable from the surge protector. Then if the power cable needs to be removed from the computer, do so)

2) Remove all cables to the computer

3) Lay the computer on it's Right side.
(As you face the computer, your right side is the computers Right)

4) There is a Release button on the Top of the computer case, and a Release Button on the Bottom of the computer case.
These are located at the Rear of the computer.

The preferred method of opening the computer case, is to press one release button in at a time, and slightly lift up on the side of the computer case, where that release button is located near.

Then go to the other side of the computer case, press this release button in, and lift up on the computer case.

The computer case opens like a clamshell. The computer case is hinged at the front.

Example:
Computer laying on it's right side. Press the Top release button in, and lift up on the computer cover located near the Top.

Now press the release button on the Bottom. Lift the computer case up.

The computer case opens from the back, towards the front, like opening a car hood.

Good day sir/maam, you need to open the side cover of the dell PC, now look at the picture below:

Do it with the next module, takes a little practice, if the module is snug and fit. thats it. Power on the PC. if you hear continuos
beeping, power the pc off, remove the modules and do the installation again. Do this several times until the PC response.

Trouble removing case on Dell Dimension 4600c


Try this...

I work on these systems on a weekly basis and they can be very difficult to open. I would make sure that you have already removed the feet from the bottom and turn it so that the heavy side (technically right side up) will be facing the floor. Place the palm of each of your hands on each of the buttons and squeeze the system as hard as you can while holding the system maybe an inch or two off of the floor. The plastic buttons basically cover a metal release tab that is actually part of the frame. All of the clamshell type cases are tough to open because of this. Good luck.
