Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
Im trying to remove the panels on my wifes old emachines e4036,as the motherboard has gone. We have bought new computer and i want to try and take the hard drive out and the dvd-rewriter,but can only get one panel off....Please help... Thank you
It's fairly simple.
at the back of the computer case undo the two screws and slide the side backwards a few inches. (may need levering gently with a screwdriver in the slot by the lock tag on the back) then the side will unclip and can be removed.
next look into the case and at the front is a cradle with a screw bolt, remove the plugs from the hard drives first then undo the bolt and grip the cradle and pull it towards you. the cd rom is mounted at the top and just need the two screws to be removed then it will slide forward to allow you to remove the IDE and power cable along with the sound lead, then just slide the cd rom all the way out and your done

Hi, try checking inside the case where you have removed the panel from. On some computers you need to unclip some plastic clips and withdraw the front panel, this may also have the drives attached to a cradle. If that is not the way, then look closely at the drive cradle and see if there is a metel clip on it, if so press this and swing the cradle out. If you do not have any luck get back to us with a description of what you see inside the box. Regards mistyman
