I need instructions to replace the power supply. This model has a power supply that swings up away from the motherboard while connected to the case. I cannot figure out how to remove this power supply. I have a compatible replacement.
That's an antique!
Found this on Dell's Support site:

For the best possible service, please provide the name of the product and your preferred language to email@example.com and we will email you the document if it's available.
But if you're lucky, somebody with first-hand knowledge will respond here.

There are 4 screws in the back that hold the power supply in place.Otherwise I see no other attachments. There may be blue press TABS once you rotate the PSU out of the way.
Documentation is buried deep.
DANGER WILL ROBINSON.
This is NOT a standard power supply.
It uses DELL PART NUMBER 9228C.
You can buy a DELL Specific Power supply from Startech to replace the 9228C unit which is 200W.

No other supply will work. You will damage your system beyond repair otherwise.
Thanks for the replies. Unfortunately, there are no instructions on exactly how to remove this swiveling PSU from the case. I understand how to swivel the PSU up out of the case. I then remove all the screws from the back of the PSU and two smaller screws apparently securing the PSU to this case, but it still won't budge and I cannot locate additional screws or attaching features. I do have experience replacing PSUs. This case seems highly proprietary. It appears that all of the hardware needs to be removed in order to dismantle the case and this PSU. Argh.
The power supply in this ancient system IS NOT STANDARD
You must use 9228C or the Specific Startech model.
The swivel comes out I'm not able to describe it but it comes out.
