Most newer desktops from Dell, open one of two ways, either push a button for release mechanism, then open like a clam -OR- pull on some spring-loaded latch and allow side covers to fall or grab and pull away. Your model does it one of those ways, unless some screw(s) is holding it back but that's would be obvious, I hope. Remove screw(s) and then apply the above latch mechanisms. While that all sounds easy, at times, because of the tightness or dust build-upo, etc., you may have to play with it. You get the idea once it's revealed to you. Also, you can surf the Dell support website and locate your model# and check for replacement of some part. usually, some generic info is provided for disassemby for int. access.

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?
