can't remove power supply from pavilion 6330f.

I want to replace the power supply from my Pavilion 6330f.  I am having great difficulty removing the original PS.  I have taken out the four screws, but the PS is still being held in place by something I can't locate.  Is there a clip or some other hidden thing keeping the PS in place?  I don't want to force anything or do too much disassembly.  Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Big Dave: Thanks!! Your instructions helped me remove the power supply from an HP Pavilion A1415n (one of the HP Pavilion A1400 series) as well. The American documentation was totally silent about the existence of the power supply latch!
