Most newer desktops only need one of the side panels removed to access the motherboard and drives. The front panel is usually held in place with screws that are tightened from within the case and are only removed if you have panel damage. If you remove the wrong side panel, you will run into a metal panel that is part of the case frame. Hope this helps!

How does one remove the right side panel from a Gateway DX4840-11e Desktop?


May not be exact, just posting info I know;

If memory serves you remove the Front Panel. This allows access to tab,s that are depressed, and allows the removal of the Right/Upper metal part of the case, (After removing rear Philips screws, 'natch)

I also seem to remember that there are plastic 'Tabs' on the top plastic cover, that protrude down into the top metal frame of the computer case. Once the wires are disconnected, the tabs are depressed, and this allows the plastic top to slide off.

Direction? Memory fading. Can't remember if you slide to the Front, or Rear. Looking at those plastic tabs should reveal this.

Also cannot remember if the plastic Top needs to be removed first, THEN the 'fairing'.

Awaiting your reply. Post back in a Comment.
Perhaps together, as you work on disassembling the case, we can solve this problem.
Remove the Front Panel, then tell me what you see.

How do I change cabin air filter in 2006 m35? video or pics?


First, you need to remove the glove box: Open the glove box. There are three hinge points at the bottom of the box (left, center and right). There are "tabs" on the box that slide into these "holders". Gently pull up and out on the left side of the glove box. The tab should pop out. Repeat for the center point. This should allow the left side stop pin to clear the dash slot. Repeat for the right side. You should now be able to turn the box, pull it from the dash and let it hang from the retaining cord on the right side. Note the hinge slots and tabs for reference for re-installation later. Second, remove the black access door behind the glove box: This is an "L" shaped cover with three hinge points at the bottom and three tabs at the top. Gently push back on the tabs at the top to un-lock, rotate down on the hinge points and pull out. Behind this you will see a white plastic door which covers and holds the filter in place. Third, remove white access door as follows or you will break the retaining tabs off! On the right side is a locking tab, gently press in and pull the right side of the tab toward you to unlock the tab BUT STOP AS SOON AS THE TAB UNLOCKS THE DOOR AND OPENS ABOUT ½ " or the tabs on the left side will break off, they are not hinged! Next, slide the door to the right to clear the tabs on the left side and remove. Note the position and orientation of the filter inside. Remove the old filter. Fourth, install the new filter: Make sure the orientation and air flow direction are as marked and match previous filter. Mine was pointing "up", with the rigid side plate facing out. The new filter will be sitting on top of the fan, when the white door is re-installed, it has "fingers" that lift the filter into the proper location, but you may find it easier to lift the filter up with one hand and slide the door back into position with the other hand. That said, lift the filter, slide the tabs on the left side of the door back into there slots. Push the door back into original position and latch the right side locking tab. Make sure the door is sealed and back to original position and latch tab on the right is locked. Now, reverse the previous steps to complete the task. Re-install the black access door cover. Lift up the glove box and turn to install right side stop pin into dash slot position, rotate left side into position and center box in dash opening. You will have to move the box up/down, in/out a bit to "feel" the hinge tabs properly engage the hinge slots. Once the tabs are in the slots you can push down on each side and it will pop back in place. (If you have difficulty, you may want to remove the under dash cover below the glove box. There are three tabs in the front that slide into three slots and one tab and slot in the rear. This can be removed by pulling down on the front of the panel at each side and the middle, then slide it forward out of the rear slot. Disconnect the light if required by pushing the latch on the plug and pulling it off. Feel around the hinge locations to guide the parts together).

Gateway is notorious for putting hidden clips towards the front face of the computer. Look for plastic push tabs along the inside of the front of the computer. If you locate them, pull/squeeze them to the insides of the case and push forward. The front cover should come off.

TAKING OFF THE FRONT PANEL OF A HP 523


The HP Pavilion 523n desktop computer, has a computer case where both side panels can be removed.

This will allow access to all the tabs from the Front Panel.

Working on a table, computer unplugged from power.
Observe anti-static precautions.

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
You may not even see it, or feel it.

Computer case open, Touch the metal frame of the computer case to relieve your body of Static.

Should you walk away from working on your computer, upon your return, be Sure to Touch the metal frame again.

Ignore the above if you are aware ]

Observing the rear of the computer, you will see two screws on the Right side edge, and on the Left side edge.

One towards the top, one towards the bottom.

The screws on the Right side are removed, so that you can remove the side panel, to gain access to the inside of the computer.

(Again, you are viewing the computer from the Rear)

Removing the screws from the left side will let you remove that left side panel.

(Actually the Right.
Viewing a computer from the Front is the correct orientation, when referring to the Right, and Left sides of a computer)

Viewing inside your computer, and to the Front, you will notice that there are plastic flat tabs.
These flat tabs are part of the Front Panel.

The tabs protrude through the metal framework of the computer case.

There are 3 tabs on the Left side.
(Viewing the computer from the Front)

There are also 3 tabs on the Right side.
One at the bottom, one in the middle, and one towards the top.

The tabs have a hooked end.

The tabs must be pushed towards the inside of the computer, so that the hooked end will clear the slot, that the tab goes through.

(Slot in metal framework of computer case)

Push the 3 tabs, one at a time, in on the Left side.

Push the tab on the bottom towards the inside of the computer.
Holding the bottom tab in, push the middle tab towards the inside of the computer.

This should allow you to EASE the bottom of the Front Panel out, towards the front of the computer, just a LITTLE.

Now reach up, and push the top tab towards the inside of the computer.

Once the hooked end of these tabs have cleared the slots they were in, the Left side of the Front Panel will be free.
Go to the other side.
The Right side.

Do the same procedure again with the Right side.

The Front Panel will come off of the computer pretty far, before the Front Panel wires have reached their length limit.

Use caution however, as you could pull too far, and accidentally break one of those wires.

If you have any further questions regarding this, or related to the Pavilion 523n, just post in a Comment.

I have been using Olympus Master 2.03 for a long time. I have the problem of it shutting down usually in edit mode. Is this problem fixed in OM2.2?


Remove the two screws on the right side of the camera (right as camera is facing away from you.)

Remove the screw from the top right side of the camera.

Remove two screws from left side of camera.

Remove the screw from the top left side of the camera.

Remove the screw that is just to the right of the viewfinder.

Pop up the flash.

Lift the top section of the casing off, with the following in mind... There are two spots where the casing interlocks: 1. Rear to the right of the viewfinder -- press in on that area to release it from the lower casing. 2. Front directly under the ME in MEGAPIXEL; press in on that as well.

Remove screw from rear side of tripod mount. (leave the front one)

CAREFULLY remove the screw from the viewfinder adjustment. The adjustment is very delicate and has two tiny plastic tabs that will shear off quite easily -- trust me because I broke mine. If you break yours, be sure to adjust it to the most convenient position (i.e. not macro) before reassembling.

REMOVE THE FLASH CARD!

At thie point, no screws impede the removal of the rear case. The flash card ejector switch, however, is a minor obstacle. It seems best to have it slid all the way to the left as you work the rear cover off (from right to left worked for me.)

Now follow the green ribbon cable from the Cancel/OK/4way switch up to the right of the zoom. Just to the right of the zoom, under that cable, is a screw hole that is more than likely EMPTY. It's not supposed to be. Find the tiny screw that goes in that hole. Either get rid of it, (not vital, IMHO) or if you want to put it back...

To replace the screw:

Remove the two screws holding the top LCD and power switch on.

Lift the rear of that assembly up to disengage its connector, and slide it back. Two LEDs protrude down from the front of it into the front casing, so be careful not to bend them.

Underneath is the socket for the ribbon for the OK/Cancel/4way. Slide it out. Now you have access to the screw hole.

Replace the screw.

Re-insert the ribbon. Make sure it is in all the way and straight.

Tile the top control board back into place, pressing it down into its socket.

At this point I inserted a battery and tested to make sure the rear and top controls still functioned. You may want to play it safe and not do this while all of the guts are exposed, but the risk is probably minimal. Do it at your own risk though.

Replace the two screws for the top control assembly.

Temporarily press the flash down and make sure the white switch at its rear is in the right place and won't get smashed when you reassemble!

Seat the compactflash ejector slide switch onto the bottom of the camera, making sure its points left, and that its two adjacent tabs straddle the metal tab on the CF slot. It's easiest to reassemble when it is slid left, so slide it there.

Replace the rear cover, tilting it on from left to right.

Insert a CF card and make sure the release switch works.

Make sure the hinge pin for the CF cover hasn't slid out, and that the cover snaps into place.

Replace its 2 long silver screws on right side of the rear cover.

Replace two shorter silver screws on left side of the rear cover.


Replace the longer silver tripod mount screw.

VERY CAREFULLY insert the viewfinder adjustment into the viewfinder, making sure its delicate tabs are in the slots of the viewfinder.
Reinstall the long black screw that holds it in place.
(If you break this, make sure to adjust the viewfinder to an optimal (infinity?) position before replacing the back cover.)

Replace the top cover while holding the flash release switch back.
Note the two points from earlier that snap together.

Test the flash release.

Replace the two screws on either side of the top cover and the one in the rear. These are all the same size.

MFATXPNT ESX 500S GATEWAY model above. Want to open the case and install 2 more memory boards. How do I open this case? Ralph


On my model, there is a broad recessed area on the top of the case.

On the left-hand side of this area (as you face the front), there is a 3-inch-wide, grooved-surfaced latch that must be pressed inward (to your left) to free the left panel. If you are facing the left side of the unit, pressing this latch inward by grabbing the top of the panel as if you were going to pull it off by force naturally presses in the latch, opening the case.

If you're not seeing the latch, note that the top half of the front can be covered by a rotating cover that covers the drive bays. When it is not covering the front, this rotating cover flips up and around, coming to rest on the top of the unit in the broad recessed area.

When this cover is flipped up and stored at the top of the unit, the case latch is hidden and not pressable. Flip the cover back down so that it's covering the drives, and you're good to go.
