Stupid question I know...

Perhaps today's just not my day (Either that or Ive been playing with the ReactOS Shell for too long :p), but basically I cant get the case off an IBM Personal Computer 300GL.

Any ideas?

There dont appear to be any screws :-(

If it's the mini-tower version with 2x 5 1/4" bays, there are 3 obvious thumb screws at the back :)

Maybe yours is different, hence no obvious screws.

Look for metal tabs on the underside,or screws behind the plastic moulded front(which itself probally just clips off)

if i remember right you will find that the top of the case slides foward about an inch and then the case lifts up.

there should be one or more screws on the back of the system.

good luck

Thanks Rob, right on :-)

There was one screw which I had mistaken for holding the PSU in place.. It was only preventing me from removing that case :8}
