There are two indented "spots" on the sides of the cover near the front. Push those in and the tabs should pop out. Then slide the cover about 1-2 inches forward and then it should lift up.

How to open cpu case


On the back of the computer down to the left bottom are two screws.
These screws are called Smart Cover Lock Screws.

They are a Torx screw.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torx

If you do not have Torx screwdrivers, or Torx bits available, you may want to check out an auto parts store, or hardware store for their cheap line.

Once the two tamper-proof screws are removed, turn the computer around to face front.
There are two triangular shaped buttons to push in to release the computer cover.
(Triangular shaped with a round indention in the middle)
One button on each side.

Both buttons are pressed in simultaneously, and the computer cover is slid forward.
The buttons are then released, and the computer cover is lifted up, and off.

This is information on the Compaq Evo Desktop Family/ Small Form Factor computers,

How to open the evo 500 compact black box


Hi maybi,

The evo's have two senarios that you may be facing.

First is Smark Cover locking. If you enable the Smart Cover Lock and cannot enter your password to disable the lock, you will need a Smart Cover FailSafe Key to open the computer cover.
You will need the key in any of the following circumstances:
Power outage
Startup failure
PC component (for example, processor or power supply) failure
Forgotten password,

If you don't have the Key, To obtain a FailSafe Key:
Contact an HP reseller or service provider.
Refer to the HP's Web site (www.HP.com) for ordering
information.
Call the appropriate number listed in the warranty.
To open the computer cover:
1. Turn off the computer and any external devices.
2. Disconnect the power cord from the power outlet, and disconnect
any external devices.
3. Using the Smart Cover FailSafe Key, remove the two
tamper-proof screws that secure the Smart Cover Lock to the
chassis.
4. Remove the Smart Cover Lock.
To reattach the Smart Cover Lock, secure the lock in place with the
tamper-proof screws


Or the non- Smart Cover Case:

1. åWARNING: Before removing the computer cover, ensure that the
computer is turned off and that the power cord is disconnected from the
electrical outlet.
2. Turn off the computer and any external devices.
3. Disconnect the power cord from the power outlet, and disconnect
any external devices.
4. Press in the button on each side of the front bezel to release the
quick release cover latches.
5. As you slide the computer cover forward, release the buttons and
allow them to return to the original position, then lift the cover up
and off the unit.
✎ To replace the cover, reverse this procedure.

DS10 with SBS PCI Expansion


Version 7.1-2 is an older version of the OS. I will have to check, but I think that V7.2 will resolve this. What version of TCP/IP are you using? Back in the day when I supported TCP and VMS, there were some timing issues that causes odd behavior. If you can provide the details about your configuration, I can check and get back to you. If necessary, an examination of a forced crashdump may be needed.

A rare opportunity to work with VMS again!!

Good stuff.
