Cover stuck shut on NetVista Type 6794-UN9 microtower

2008-05-17, 14:25 PM
Cover release button pushes down only 2 mm (is this the normal distance?).  Cover does not slide back.  User's Guide and Maintenance Manual say nothing more.  Pushing in a blue button (unidentified) on back at top releases nothing.   No other cover locking buttons etc. are visible nor mentioned in manuals.  Is there a way to get the cover release functioning, or do I have to unscrew some other panels (how?) to get in and find what's blocking the release button?
(It's installed Ubuntu 7.10 just fine; now I want to install a wireless adapter (Edimax 76281G)).

I cant really help you with much, but I can tell you that that unidentified blue button in the back is supposed to release the front cover.
as for the rest of it, i don't know what to tell you, maybe hit it with a bat.
