If you are asking about the battery that keeps the time of day and date, as well as other computer settings, it isnt too hard to change. It is a coin type battery, and it is mounted on the motherboard. You must unplug the tower, and get the case opened up. After you locate the battery, which is about the size of a nickel, you have to carefully pop it out of the battery holder, and there is usually a small tab to release it. Most of them are a CR2032 battery, which is a 3 volt Lithium battery, which sells for about $2-3 depending where you get it. Install the battery the same way you took it out, usually the flat side up.
plug you computer back in and when it boots up, you should have to set the time and the date, etc, and other computer settings, but you are good to go.

SOURCE: How to remove tower cover...

There are going to be a few small screws on the the back right side (if you are looking at the back of the tower. Remove the the screws from along the edge of the side ( you may have to loosen both sides ) and the case slides towards you then lifts off. If it doesn't budge use a flat head screwdriver to pry in between the cover and tower case and gently slide it towards you. Trust mr it won't break cause it's metal and if it bends you can use pliers to bend it back to shape. Hope the info helps GOD Bless You.

This system supports ECC and non-ECC Rambus modules. ECC and non-ECC modules can be mixed but ECC feature will be disabled. Modules must be installed in pairs. multiple modules - PC800 the max is 2 GBs
systems disc clean up...put a check mark in every box, you don' need anything there as it is all copies you have elsewhere...
then defraggment also in system tools.
If you really feel like making that ole girl hum, do a complete reinstall using the latest drivers from the dell site. If you use your service tag number it will select the better drivers for your application.
go to this page for drivers (above) select your operating system (2000-ME-XP-Vista).
hope this helps you. Please leave rating

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

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'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.
