Take Dell motherboard out

ok i know this should be easy to take out a motherboard i have done it many times but with this dell optplex gx150 i cant get it out it is driving me NUTS

There are only 2 screws and i took them out but this motherboard will not come out... i know dell does some odd things so i might just be missing somthing

Heres a link to the teardown guide for that system http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx150/sm_en/smdsktp.htm#rem_sysbrd, you have to remove the motherboard with the tray attached then you can remove the motherboard from the tray.
