Hi, I just got a laptop so i'm taking apart my dell dimension 4600 to sell the components. Everything was smooth sailing (i've taken apart plenty of computers before) until i got to the motherboard. I've unscrewed all of the screws...but it appears that the heat sink is bolted down or something. anyone seen this bfore, and can anyone help? thanks -jeff

warriorscot,
i've been able to get everything in the case out except for the motherboard. it looks like there are some bolts on the back plan that are pretty tough to access. i'll keep trying i guess, let me know if you have more suggestions.
