How to Remove the Side Access Panel

Caution - Caution -

Do not operate the system while any of its plastic outer panels or doors are removed.

Caution - Caution -

Removing the side access panel or removable media assembly activates the system power interlock switches. This safety mechanism prevents all DC voltages (except 5V standby power) from reaching any internal component when the side panel or removable media assembly is removed and the front panel keyswitch is left on. Do not remove the side access panel or removable media assembly while the system is operating or the system will power off abruptly.
