How do I remove the power button on Dell Dimension 8300 desktop

How do I remove the power button and/or the power button I/O assembly on a Dell Dimension 8300 desktop? I can't find any schematic or instructions on Dell's site that tells how to take the the front bezel off in order to access it. The system is getting power but it won't power on and the front panel doesn't show any lights at all.

    Well I figured it out. The top and bottom pieces have to come off first because they encase the front panel (also a pain to remove). Once you have removed the top and the bottom (foot/base), you then have to release the two inside tabs and another tab on the top part of the front bezel that hooks to the underside of the metal chassis above the CD/DVD drive bays. Now I can access the power button/I/O board. It is held in by a single screw (no tabs).

Open the side- and along the just inside the front exposed edge there are several tab that get push inward to release the front. They have a tendency to catch again when you go to the next one...you'll just have to play with it a bit. once that is open you'll see the other little plastic tab that holds the switch assembly . Don't forget to UNPLUG the power supply.

    you are so correct. I was not thinking of the **** shell case- I guess you noticed that when I said remove the side panel...can't do that either...I am very sorry my help didn't help. I had just been working on a dell 170L and a Gx620
    I had no idea what you were talking about until I went and look at a dell 8250...again I apologize ...

How do I open a Dell Dimension 8300. I lost my manual


There are two release buttons, one is on the bottom of the case and one on the top. Lay the case on its side and depress these two buttons and the case opens like a **** shell. There are slide hinges attached to allow it tp open wide without disturbing the wiring looms inside.
