Can you be more specific as to which exact model you have - please? And on the back of it there ought to be a Dell tag number - and hopefully the model number too. Both would be most useful - if anyone is going to be able to help you. The model number not the least!!!

The Dell 6000 is a laptop.

You just have to locate the retaining screw(s). One model ( can't remember if it was Dell) had a screw going in from the bottom of the case.

"The Dell 6000 is a laptop"

And the only mini-tower 6000 I could find is a HP/Compaq.

I GOOFED!. It is a HP Pavillion a6000 mini tower.
I want to know how to remove the "cage" around the hard drives without tearing it out.
I see a lever on the far side between the cage , as I call it, and the circuit board
