  3. Lets get into the internals! First, flip the unit over and insert a small flat-head screwdriver in between the warranty sticker and the front panel and gently pry it open. Beware! It may take some effort to pry the panel off.  Also, be careful not to damage the motherboard, like I did. This will certainly void your warranty from 2002, in case you wanted to know.

    • If you want to reassemble this, just do this guide in reverse order! (assuming you didn't break it like I did)

    OK I followed the disassemble guide as suggested ..... now the bit with

    Step 3 Front Panel Removal I did it exactly and yeah I scratch the motherboard too!!!

    But after more more looking when it was apart I found that there where screws in the front feet that held it on

    Hmm, mine came apart with ease after a bit of prying. About the scratched Motherboard, in hindsight I should have used a plastic spudger. I have another one of these and will look into the thing with the feet and update if needed. Thanks!

    Under the ruber feet on the blue plastic, there are two screws. You can insert a small screw driver into the hold on the feet, and lift it out. Then unscrew the screws instead of prying it.

    You’re the second person to tell me this. I never saw any sort of screws like that. I have like 2 more of them so I’ll look into adding a step if necessary. Thanks for letting me know.
