Hey all,

I've got a Dell Optiplex GX260 that I have to replace the motherboard on.  I've taken out the power supply, the processor, everything but the board itself.  I've removed the 2 screws that I can see from the inside of the computer, but I have a feeling that I have to remove the side cover that the board is up against to release some more screws.  Is this correct, I'm having quite a time trying to remove it.

Thanks,
Chris

That usually is the way it works for me. Everything falls apart when you least expect it.

I didn't expect that either.
