I have an Acer Veriton 2800 and I can't for the life of me figure out how to remove the Hard Drive. I am trying to replace the hardware.

 I removed the1 side of the case but the other side is riveted together.
Removed the power supply.
Unplugged cables to cd rom and Sata drive.
Cannot remove the Chasis/enclosure that the cdrom & hard drive are in.

Help Please

I think you have to remove the front bezel (it looks like it is held in place by 3 plastic notches that you have to lift a little, and then you should be able to pull it away. After that you can unscrew and remove the DVD drive, and then you should be able to access the screws that hold the HD in place (form the top). The link below has an online service manual:

There will be some lock near CDrom or hard drive enclosure you need to check it closely.

you need to remove front body of your CPU cabinet. check attachment lock highlighted in yellow.
