Question about HP Media Center 864N PC Desktop
I have a hp media center pc 864n. I would like to open the tower to clean out all of the dust. If anyone knows how to accomplish this your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
That link is a video of how to take apart yor case. It is very thorough, primarily, it just shows that the side of the case is held on with a couplw of screws, looking at the tower from the front, it's the left panel that you want to remove, not the left, the right one will give you access to what yo are interested in doing.Make sure the plug is removed not just turned off. There is residual voltage that still runs into the main board from the power supply, and try to use a very light computer vacum or one of those swiffer dusters work well. If you poke around with the vacum be careful that you don't **** off the jumpers, you won't relise it untill you turn it on. You can use compressed air that is sold in computer stores or most large electronics stores like Best Buy, Don't forget to get the power supply in thr upper corner of the case, it also has fans in it that collect dust. When you re assemble it, make sure you get the panel in the groove at the bottom, and the clips at the top, and good luck
