    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.

    The most important activity that you as a computer user can do is to keep your computer as clean as possible. Your system's user guide is the best source to find specific information about how to clean your system's outer components; but here are some basic tips you should always follow.
    Computers are an everyday part of life in the modern world. However, computers require special attention and care in order for them to function properly and to operate safely. Here are some basic guidelines to help you maintain your computer equipment and to keep your equipment functioning for a long time. After all, keeping your equipment running will save you money.
    Prevention to be taken on your computer
    • Keep computer equipment away from direct sunlight to prevent overheating.
    • Keep computer equipment away from direct exposure to water or humidity to prevent damage.
    • Keep computer equipment in a clean and dust free area.
    • Always use surge protectors to prevent electrical surge damage to your system.
    • Place an anti-static mat in the area where you are operating your computer to eliminate or prevent anti-static damage to your system.
    • Have your system's interior cleaned at least once every year to keep it running smoothly and to protect your investment.
    Things to be cautioned about while operating your computer.
    1. NEVER eat or drink while operating your computer. Food crumbs can easily damage your computer.
    2. NEVER place an open container containing water on or near your computer to avoid electrical shock.
    3. NEVER use your computer's keyboard with dirty or sticky hands.
    4. NEVER allow your pets near your computer. Dust and hairballs can accumulate inside the computer's case and cause your system to overheat.
    5. YOU SHOULD NEVER spray any type of cleaner into your computer's air vents or you could damage your system.

    Computer maintenance
    Basic computer maintenance should be part of your regular routine. Keeping your computer dust and dirt free, will guarantee that your computer will last and will give you years of reliable performance. Please consult your user's guide for more specific maintenance practices and intervals.
    How to clean your computer system
    Computer systems require cleaning of internal parts especially when used outside of a clean environment. However, only an authorized technician should open the computer case and clean sensitive electronic components. Consult your user guide to determine the best interval for internal cleaning and take your computer to a certified technician.
    Monitor screen
    Your computer monitor is likely to be the component that will require the most attention, because computer monitors tend to get dirty from regular use and from dust. To clean your computer monitor or LCD, you can use special chemicals design to clean computer monitors without damaging them.
    To clean your computer's screen you can use OPTECH CTR Screen Care. This special cleaner is an anti-static cleaner and coating which safely removes fingerprints and smudges from computer display screens. This cleaner also leaves the surface treated with an invisible dust repellent film, which contains an optical ingredient which fills-in minute scratches eliminating surface distortion and reducing eye fatigue.
    How to apply a computer screen cleaner
    First, NEVER spray the cleaner directly onto your computer. Instead, spray a lint-free cloth lightly with the computer screen cleaner, and then clean your screen. Be sure to hold the cloth away from your computer when spraying the cleaner to the cloth.
    Keyboard maintenance
    Dirt and other debris can fall or accumulate between the keys and cause damage or prevent the keys from functioning properly. To clean your computer's keyboard you must use either canned air/gas or a small computer-specific vacuum cleaner. NEVER apply any cleaner or liquid directly to your keyboard. If the keys are dirty, use a lint-free cloth that has been sprayed with computer cleaner to lightly and carefully clean your computer's keyboard. DO NOT clean your computer while the computer is operating, and avoid using your computer till the cleaner has dissipated to avoid possible damage to your equipment. Consult your user's guide for precise instructions on your particular machine.
    Case/Tower maintenance
    Your computer case will require maintenance. You should remove dust and grime from your computer's air vents and your computer's case. ALWAYS use canned air/gas to clean your computer's vents or air intakes. Canned air/gas cleaners are idea for cleaning air vents, keyboards, disk drives and computer case crevices. The exterior of your computer's case can be cleaned with a lint-free cloth sprayed with an anti-static computer cleaner. When in doubt about how to clean your computer system, ALWAYS consult your user manual or call your system's technical support department.
    Safe and clean computing will save you money!
    Following these basic computer care guidelines should help you to take good care of your computer system, and keep it running for years. Preventive maintenance will keep your system from having problems and will save you money in the long run. For specific questions about your particular system, you should ALWAYS check your user guide or contact technical support.

    Computer Repair Services


    Computer repair includes software and hardware repair. Hardware repair is needed when any part of the computer is not functioning as expected. Software repair is required when any software program is not executing properly.

    Need of computer repair

    Computer repair is needed for making your computer function properly. Your computer will function properly if all its parts are working properly. Some of the issues for which you require computer repair are as follows:

    • Computer automatically shuts down
    • Computer takes much time in launching applications
    • Computer system crashes or locks up
    • Blue screen error
    • Computer makes beeping sound when switched on

    The reason for most of the computer issues is the lack of maintenance. For maintaining your computer and optimizing its performance, you have to update software regularly, clean registry, empty cache files and many others.

    In case, you have the knowledge about how to repair your computer, you can perform it yourself. But if you do not have any knowledge in this field, then you can contact a computer support technician.

    Computer repair technician is a person who will repair your computer either through online or on-site. Online computer repair is preferred in case your computer needs software repair. If you want to go for online computer repair, all you need to have is an Internet connection. Online computer repair saves your from the pain of taking your computer to some technical services center or inviting some technician at your own residence.

    These days most of the companies offering online computer repair adopt the method of remote desktop connection. Technician will access your computer with the use of software made for remote desktop connection. But you have to give him permission for doing so. After getting permission, he will diagnose your problem and after that resolve it. Technician will install, reinstall or uninstall any software, or modify some of the settings for resolving issues.

    In case of hardware repair, you have to call a technician in your premises. Technician will diagnose all of your peripheral devices, in case of any faulty one, he will replace that one. He will also update drivers of peripheral devices.

    So, it can be said that computer repair is required when your computer is not functioning as expected.
