    Thanks for your quick response. I already tried to follow that manual - I removed all the screws and then could not find any "Tabs". Tried to lift both sides carefully with a screwdriver, was stuck then (am not the only one by the way ...) On the right side there is only the drive and the power button which seems to be in the way.

    the tabs are the left and rigth cover at the back of the computer, I have check it with my own system try locate any locks that prevent you removing the tabs, It would be much better to remove one tab at a time.

    I still cant work it out. Afraid to break something. Pc is only 3 weeks old and 4 GB RAM waiting to be put in ... :(

    I'm also having this same problem of trying to install additional memory, were you ever able to remove the back? I don't see any tabs nor did I have any 'rubber covers' to remove from the screws. If someone has been successful with this operation, can you please provide more details as to exactly where the 'tabs' are and what they look like?

    I know this is an old post, but I just got my back panel off. This is what I did:

    1. Remove the 8 screws
    2. Pop up the two top corners (opposite the speakers) slightly; You should feel it release
    3. Across the top (where the orange mesh is), push in slightly and pop up. Continue until you have gone all across (Those tabs like to reattach when you get past midway, so put a precision screwdriver (rubber side in) to keep it from reclamping). I also used the screwdriver to help get leverage to pry up the mesh, but be careful; just use it so you can get your finger in, not to PRY.
    4. Now you should have the whole top part un-tabbed, go halfway down on each side and just above the disc drive and just above the memory card reader/headphone jack, there is a pop tab. It takes a bit more effort than the top piece, but don't go crazy on it.
    5. Now focus on the bottom part of the panel: in the middle (inbetween the speakers), you can pop up the back panel a little; If I remember correctly, there are 3-4 tabs.
    6. Now the biggest pain the **** for this back panel: just below the headphone jack and just below the CD drive, there is a very sturdy pop tab. What I did was put a precision screwdriver in the part of the speaker panel that is angles (45 degree part) to help "pry" it up. DON'T wiggle to pry up too hard, that plastic is soft and you can make a divot in it with the screwdriver.
    7. After you get past step 6, go back to the top and lift up from the top corners (lift towards the speaker, like you are standing up the panel). There are two small pop tabs at the bottom that will/should release when the panel is pivoted. It not, go back to the speaker area and make sure the tabs are popped up enough.

    8. You're Done.

Chair has been idle for years. I tried to turn it on and nothing happened. I plugged it in and waited 2 hours, all the lights came on. Looked at the owner's manual and it was pretty useless to me. So, all...


It will not help to try to charge those batteries. No amount of charging will bring them back You will need to buy 2 U1 batteries if your chair is a smaller Jazzy or Jet. The heavy duty chairs take a bigger size battery Hope this helps you Check if there is a battery distributor or store in your area they will be cheaper than going to a provider that sells chairs
