"2) Pull up and hold open the latch on the top of the computer."

"3) Slide the computer access panel back about 0.5 Inch (1/2 Inch, or 1.3Cm), then lift off the unit."

The Access Panel has tabs formed out of it's sheet metal construction. These tabs have a hooked end. The hooked end must be brought towards the back of the computer, so it will be free of the matching slot in the metal frame of the computer case.

Then it can be lifted up, and off.

This is a standard micro atx board. The holes you are seeing will be on any 478 mobo, you just have to remove the black bracket, which is usually achieved by lifting the center pin in each of the corners.

My DC5000 SFF turns on okay then switches off randomly Help!!


Which fan are you referring to? As far as I know the fan in the power supply runs at the same speed at all times. So if that is the fan you are hearing it may indicate that the power supply is failing. The power supply may be over heating and shutting down. I would try a different power supply if you can get your hands on one.
