So for my birthday, my dad, he wanted to buy me a computer. He decides to get me a Hp Pavillion 6540y (I'm pretty sure that is the model). Anyway, the computer is mostly for school by I would love to be able to play Starcraft 2 on decent settings. My problem is the PSU does not want to come off.

I can slide off the panel that has the motherboard face up so I can put whatever I want in the expansion slots but I can not remove the panel behind the motherboard (the panel on the case). It seems they have made it to be more difficult then it should be.

My question is how the heck do I replace the power supply? My googlin skills must be terrible today because I can not find a answer.

Thanks for everybody's time.

That's the one. Trust me, I took off the 4 screws and there is a death grip on the PSU on the motherboard frame holder. If you look around on the case there are a bunch of "screws" that are actually just a circle dip. So unless I am an idiot I could not get it off.
