Case Disassembly

To open your computer you must first remove the 2 thumbscrews on the right hand side at the back, the CPU vent can be removed by releasing the 4 plastic retaining clips. Next, slide the case backwards then lift away from the main unit.

The front bezel has 6 retaining clips, 3 located on each side of the case. Release these clips then pull the bezel away with the hand grip underneath. Note: the bezel is connected to a very short power cable. Exercise caution when removing.


Your PC should have a backup copy of all the drivers, you can find it by browsing to the c:\applications\drivers folder.

Overclocking is not gonna make up for the fact that you only have 512MB RAM. Plus it's the wrong RAM for your 533MHz FSB CPU. You should have DDR333 (PC2700) & you should install the max, 2 x 1GB. I doubt your board is overclockable anyway.
