    use a some plyers and you have to unscrew them. Or you can se4e if you have a tool that will fit and you just unscrew them.

    i had to actually hammer them out. it was really easy. thanks for all the help. hopefully the next motherboard will not short out. i've taken all the excuses out of the case. also can someone tell me what size rubber washers i can use when i screw in the new mobo?

    The same thickness as the stand offs. I have a cludge i use....

    The top half of the tiny bulb sockets on christmas lites are about the right diameter. So I cut them off an old dead string. Slice them to the right height, run a screw into the bottom through the case and then run a screw through the MB into the top. Elcheapo insulated standoffs!
