    Hatch on back of all in one pc


    Click image for larger versionI have a Dell Inspiron One 2020, and theres a little hatch that's basically impossible to open, before I break my PC on accident,what's under this hatch? I've noticed there's no HDMI anywhere on this thing, and I'm leading to believe it's under the hatch.

    There is no HDMI input/output of the Dell Inspiron 2020.

    Can't tell what hatch you are talking about. Can you input an arrow to indicate where?

    Looks like you need to remove the stand then you can get at the hatch????

    Since an all in one motherboard is very similar to a laptop motherboard, I would say the hatch gives access to the RAM and or hard drive, for upgrade or replacement.

    Dell usually has good manuals that explain how to access their systems. It might be a maintenance manual, but should be available online.

    On the back of my ASUS all in one, the hatch is for removal of the stand and access to screws which hold the back on.

    There would be no reason to hide the HDMI port behind a hard to remove cover. What would be the point?
