Yikes. That would cause me some serious back pain. The price of cool is too high. Give me two straps or I stay home.

I seem to have a problem here...
My Apc looks locked by the screws.

thats the screws on the inside screwing the mother board to the unit.

You shouldn't need to mess with those.

You DO need to remove the rubber feet and take the screws under there out.

Say good bye to your warranty and Hello to the product Akai should have put out.

Cheers!

It's actually very very simple, just take your time. Now if you have never used a screwdriver before, or have difficulty eating your food with utensils, maybe you shouldn't try it.
