Default Re: urgent... building my computer need help

when i built my computer...i took off the side panel first and secured the motherboard into the case...then i put in parts ram cpu etc in no real order.. i put in the hard drive and the cd drives last...and in order to take off the metal panel you just rip it off.. it should be very flexible, then just put in the metal panel that came with the mobo.

what do you mean by prying it off the motherboard...there should be no prying of things on the motherboard.. only of the thin metal sheet on the case that covers up the mouse and keyboard ports.. ethernet etc.

It will come off... If need be, you could grab a Dremel (I'm sure you or a neighbor has one) and hack away at it. Just make sure you don't make the rectangle irregular on the case, or else the backplate won't fit. And even if you do, the backplate isn't that important.
