Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

The Cover on my Dell Dimension 3000 will not come off. It seems to be stuck. It will release just a little and it will not slide off. I am destroying the cover. I tried what "teeters" suggested with no luck. Perhaps a little more detail is required. Thanks

    Hello, It' me again. Thanks for your suggestions. There are no metal tabs and, I have been trying to slide while holding the tab. It just won't lift up. The funny thing about this is get this, This is what I do for a living!!!! I work in MIT at the Help desk. I've done this thousands of time on OTHER computers!!! Go Figure!! I will keep trying though. And, when I get the cover off, I will let you know and I will not be putting it back on.

    Hello,



    It appears to be stuck at the front portion at the top upper right (standing up correctly - Upper left laying on its side with the back facing you).

    Hello Helpers!!



    Good News!!! My Husband got it off for me. What he did was take a butter knife and put it under the front of the cover and got it to go back just enough where the cover would lift off. He is a true God Send!!! Thanks again for your assistance,

    Look on the back of your case, is there a metal tab that is holding your case in its stuck position? If not, look for more screws, maybe there is a screw or something you need to take off. I would first reccomend looking for any obvious obstructions.

Lay your computer on its side with the computer cover facing up.
If your computer cover has a cover latch, slide and hold the cover latch.

Grip the indents on the computer cover, and slide the computer cover toward the back of the computer.

I am trying to remove the side cover from a Dell Dimension 3000 to replace RAM. Don't seem to be able to work it out. Can you help please?


Can you move the little black lever on the back by the PCI cards? I seem to remember it moves upwards to unlock the side. Once you've moved that, the side slides back a couple of inches and then lifts off. Put the Dell flat on its side so you can get more purchase to push the side back - it can be hard to start off.
Good luck,

How do I take the desktop apart to put in more


Computer off, cables unplugged. Lay the computer on it's right side. (As you view the computer from the front) On the back towards the bottom, you'll see a slide latch. Looks like a metal tab that sticks out a little. laying on the side, the latch is pushed down towards the bottom. Then you will see two indentations on the side cover. Looks like you would use your fingers to grab these indentations to pull on. You do.You are trying to slide the cover towards the back.I HAVE run into one, that the slide lock would not fully release all the way. Makes it REAL FUN(?) to get the side cover off. I had to use a very non-professional way to release the slide lock, and slide the side cover back. (A little case metal bending, was involved! Fortunately I'm a pro, and it was brought to me with this problem. I received permission to open it anyway I could. I bent everything back smooth, and removed this slide lock)This is Dell.com/Support, and the Manuals page for the Dell Dimension 4700. More specifically, the page that shows and tells you how to open the computer case.http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4700/sm/cvrop.htm#wp1052331After you view this, I also suggest you may want to take a look at the page for installing Ram Memory. Just go to the top of this page, and click on the blue -> Back to contents page <-
