How do i open a dell inspiron 519 tower to get to the motherboard

The following steps will provide you information on how to open the case for the dell Inspiron 519 desktop computer you are requesting.

Step 1. Before you begin, you must ensure that you have unplugged the computer system from the electrical outlet along with all other cords. This will help ensure your safety to reduce the chance of electrical shock. It is important to remember that when working inside any electronic device that capacitors can hold an electrical charge for an extended period of time even when there is no power source directly connected to the system and can still cause an electrical shock.

Step 2. Lay the computer tower on it's side with the cover facing up.

The following picture is a good illustration to help guide you:

Numbered parts list and what they are
1. Is the computer cover.
2. Is the front side of the computer.
3. Are the two thumb screws you will need to remove.
4. Is the cover grip.

Step 3. You will need to loosen the two thumb screws that hold the case in place.

Step 4. Pull the cover grip directly towards the back of the computer in order to release the cover.

Step 5. Once the computer case is released, you should now be able to pull in an upward direction and completely remove the case to expose the internal components of the computer system.

Step 6. In order to replace the case, just follow the same steps in reverse order.

If you are planning to remove the motherboard, you will have to remove other internal hardware components before you can completely remove the motherboard.

The following link will provide you with a Manual for your computer system in pdf format. You can download and save this information to help answer any other questions you may have about your system or contact dell. I hope this helps solve your problem, please feel free to contact me if you need further assistance.

If you would not mind, please rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it, thank you.

Want to add RAM 1GB to my compac 6400nx but unable to remove the cover how is this done

Opening the case
Use the following steps to open the case: WARNING: The edges of metal panels can cut skin. Be careful not to slide skin along any interior metal edge of the computer. CAUTION: This product contains components that can be damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, use a static dissipative work surface (like a conductive foam pad), and wear an ESD wrist strap connected to a grounded surface.
  1. Unplug all cables except for the power. Write down each cable location if you do not already know where it connects.
  2. Unplug the power cable and with the power cable removed press the Power button.
  3. Remove the screws on the rear of the desktop (Your PC case may appear different than the images in this document). Figure 1: Example of screws for the side panel c00371471.jpg
  4. Slide the side panel off from the rear of the desktop. Figure 2: Removing the side panel
