How do I remove the case cover to my HP Pavilion Slimline s7600n?

I am trying to clean out the massive hair inside of my computer I can see it from the back and its causing the fan not to run. Can someone tell me how to take the case/cover off so I can clean my computer out?

 

I have a HP Pavilion Slimline s7600n and any help would be lovely.

Try this link to see if it helps:

It pertains to upgrading the memory, but it explains how to remove the cover towards the middle of the page.

 

Let us know if it doesn't help.

Here is another link that may give you better instructions:

It shows where the three screws are that have to be removed to release the cover.

The second link worked better for me. Thank you so much! I just cleaned out enough hair and dirt to have made an entire dog with. Now My computer is not noisy and no longer seems to be heating up because the fan can actually move now.

Thank you so much!
