Since I have been "Psuedo" computer litterate since I had a Tandy 1000, this is the fist time I have ever seen rivits instead of screws. Do you know why they have made working on it, or updating much more of a project?

Rivets are often drilled out and new rivets put in, if that's your selection.

The Dell 2400 comes apart easily. Remove the left side panel, then find the plastic tabs that connect the front panel to the case. Press the tabs and the front comes off. The drives are in a (metal)drive case that is held in by one screw - at the bottom of the drive case. There is also a screw on the bottom of the computer that holds a case assembly in.

You must remove the drive case to get to the screws on the right side of any drives in the drive case.

A little study and away you go.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
