Opening Case

  Rivelin 13:58 23 Jan 2006

My MESH PC is about 2 years old and find I need more memory.
However cannot find keys to open case!
Nevever opened case before and Keys are not 'taped'to back.
Any ideas on where I might get some from?

What do you mean by 'Keys'
Could it possibly a Hex or Torx drive screw
for professional dissembly only?
Although most £ stores sell this type of thing as a multi drive kit.
Then if you did not know this I would question the wisdom in you opening the box.

My Mesh box is also about two years old but has tool free access.

Has yours not got two thumb screws at the back?

Case keys are not high security types and should be easily available.

Most that I have seen are either hex keys (Allen type) or a simple tubular key with a sort of "pip" that locates in a small slot on the lock. You can find most of these in junk boxes all over the place - just ask a few friends - I'm sure someone will have them.

Often, even the ones with keys may also have thumb screws and/or sliding catches at the rear.

Remember it is the left side of the case (with the front facing you) that normally provides access to the contents. The other side just accesses the underside of the motherboard.

Give Mesh a ring, I'm sure they'll just pop one in the post.

Hi there,

The keys I beleive that Rivelin is talking about are a flat smaller version of a typical yale door key (and a lot less complicated).

Rivelin, if you email me your screen name (Rivelin), Mesh order number, and a confirmation of your address to [email protected], I will send a key out to you.

Thanks for your help
MESH are sending me a key.

Then I just have to put the new memory in!
