Remove Casing from Medion desktop

I've removed all the screws from the back, but the casing isn't budging. How do I get the casing off? I just want to get in to clean the fan.

I suspect you need to slide off the top part of the case,their will be some wires attached to it.
good luck

Remove outer casing from desktop PC


Usually just two screws or thumb screws on the back edge. Then lay the tower on the big side. Push down into the case and back and it should slide out. This is most cases. Some will have latches or buttons.

How do you remove the screen on an MD 97860? The hinges are part of the screen.


As with any laptop, you must first remove the casing on the lower half. This will reveal all the internals, including your next step. Youll notice the laptops Hinges are held by the casing. You simply unscrew it, remove it, unclamp it, whatever your laptop does to keep the screen attatched, and unplug the screen.

BUT! You must remove the casing. All laptops are designed to hold one thing by putting together 4 others. Its like a puzzle.

Hope this helps!

Sony vaio desktop all in one back light not working


To fix your problem please follow the below given steps
Step1
Power on your computer and wait until there should be an image displaying on your LCD monitor. Look directly into the monitor from a distance of about 1 inch way. Cup your hands around your face to block out the light in the room and get a clearer view of the LCD screen. Check to see if there is a faint light visible in the screen, which will indicate that the cold cathode backlight has gone out, or no image at all, which will indicate a different problem.

Step 2 Check the manual that came with your desktopmag-glass_10x10.gif LCD monitor or navigate to the manufacturer's website and find the model of cold cathode bulb that the monitor uses as a backlight. Purchase a corresponding replacement bulb

Step3 Power off your computer and then remove the monitor cable from the port on the back of the computer case. Disconnect the monitor stand from the monitor either by pulling out the plastic latches or by removing the screws holding it to the monitor's casing.

Step4 Lay the monitor face down onto a stable work surface such as a desk or table. Take out the screws along the edges of the monitor's casing and set them aside. Lift the back side of the monitor case off of the monitor and set it aside. Check to see if your model of LCD monitor has the back light directly exposed on the lower end of the monitor or if it is hidden behind another plastic or metal piece.

Step5
Remove the screws holding the plastic or metal piece over the bulb if there is one present and set the piece aside. Check to see if your model of monitor keeps the bulb in a plastic casing or if it is soldered directly to the metal. Use a soldering tool to remove the solder or instead use a rotary cutting tool to cut into the clear plastic casing around the bulb if it is inside a case.

Step6
Slide the new bulb into the open spot on the monitor and either solder it in place or use a piece of tape to cover over the opening you made on the plastic casing with the rotary cutting tool. Place the metal or plastic cover back on if there was one and reattach the screws. Set the casing back onto the monitor and place the screws back in.

Step7 Put the stand back on the monitor and then reconnect it to your desktop computer. Power the computer on and wait for an image to appear on the screen to make sure the back light bulb was installed correctly.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

    How do i remove the harddrive


    Hi,

    What you will do is turn the case around and loosen the two case screws on the right side of the back case. Then slip off the side panel. Inside you will probably find a casing that the hard drive is sitting in, sometimes it's facing you , aometimes it not. If it's not, there is a lever that you can pull to release the casing with the hard drive in it. Then there will be a couple of screws on the side of the casing that need to be taken out to remove the drive completely. Opps, almost forgot, you'll have a cable that comes from the back of the hard drive that goes to the motherboard, You only need to remove the side that's connected to the hard drive, and your done. Reverse these instructions in order to put in a new drive.

    Good Luck

    I want to upgrade the RAM, and when I opened the desktop the dvd is positioned over the memory slots. I CANNOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO REMOVE THE DVD TO SWOP OUT THE RAM


    see if there the motherboard is secured onto a rack that can slide out of the casing. most newer computers have this feature. if not, you will have to unscrew the dvd drive from the casing to get to memory slots. unplug the drive, find the mounting screws, and remove the drive. remember to plug everything back up (power, interface cable, digital cable if present).

    good luck.

    Removing outer casing


    If it is a desktop, there should be two thumbscrews in the back. Remove them and slide the side off.

    If it is a laptop, then the RAM is probably underneath a cover plate on the bottom of the computer. Remove the screw and the cover should pop open.
