    • The top cover (in this case, pink) is held in by two screws at the top of the computer. They are hidden under plastic covers, and must be removed before you can unsnap the top cover.

    • WARNING: Have caution while handling the now-exposed CRT. Some people wish to discharge it before continuing, however if it hasn't been used in a while I would suggest leaving it alone and just not touching it. I am not responsible for any injury or damage resulting from mishandling the CRT!

    • The CRT can be unscrewed and removed from its metal housing.

    • The exposed components can be dangerous to handle, so do this at your own risk.
