Question about Gateway DX432001e Microtower Desktop
How would one remove the left side panel on from the back side of the case. I have removed all six screws anchoring it to this side but it seems the part that is still there is connected to the plastic part on top. In dire need of help.

Get a can of compressed air. You can buy it at any computer store. Blow through the front cover from inside the computer. That should get the dust out. Make sure to blow through the fins on the heat sink that sits on the processor. Blow out all the fans inside the case and on the power supply unit. Don't use a vacuum cleaner. You might **** up some small piece like a jumper on the motherboard which would cause you more problems.

You're going to have to help me out here. I don't see it,
Scroll the page down to the bottom, and the photo that shows the Side Panel removed.
All I see is the Processor fan, and the fan for the Power Supply.
That is the metal case with the odd shape, at the bottom right of the computer view.

If this is the fan that is not working, replace the Power Supply.
Inside that Power Supply are Capacitors.
A capacitor is designed to slowly build up a charge, then release it all at once.
There are cameras that use them for their flash units.
A crude example would be a large swimming pool, filled up by a garden hose; then one wall of the pool is taken down all at once.
Even after the Power Supply is unplugged from power, those 'Caps' can hold a charge for weeks, months, a lot of times over a Year.
If your fingers, accidentally touch the terminals on the bottom of a capacitor, the charge can be released to YOU!
If your fingers accidentally complete a circuit, that one, or more capacitors are in; the charge can be released to YOU!
Shock ranges from BAD to FATAL.
[The Input Stage uses Capacitors that can hold a charge, of Up To 100 Volts ]
