Replacing Power Supply for Dell XPS 710

Can anyone direct me too instructions for dissassembly, removal and replacement of the 750W Power Supply for a Dell XPS 710? I have a link to Dell's Service Manual for the XPS 700 Series computers. It addresses almost every subassembly EXCEPT the power supply.

Assuming you are replacing it with a better/larger PSU then I would assume that every port on your current PSU is also available on the new one and possibly then some. If you don't know the name of the cables then I would suggest simply marking them as to which is connected to the power supply. No need to replace them I don't think. Make sure the computer is turned off and unplugged completely for a few minutes before removing the PSU. As far as what goes into it though, especially nowadays, varies as a lot of the hardware is powered by the PSU or the MOBO. It's more of a personal preference.
here is the video for how to replace PSU for xps720. for xps710 also the same method apply.
