    Hi,

    I bought a Cicero SP2520E Computer and the side pannels are in two seperate pecies. I can take the back 3/4 of the side panels of but the front 1/3 is held on with round screws with round holes. How do i get this off???? And also the other side is one complete panel but its screwed on with round screws with round circle how do i get in to my computer so i can install a dvd burner???

    Thanks In advance,

    Liam

    they should drill out easily but you'll need either new rivets or very small machine screws with nuts to reassemble

    Why do you think you need to remove the front to do this?

    I believe the pop rivets are put there to make it as difficult as possible to get it opened. We have one "sealed" with pop rivets
    I think because of extended warranty. Maybe wrong. ;)
