Answers :

If your Gateway PC is laying horizontally flat. There will be a black\015\012button in front of the PC on the left side of the CD-Rom. Push really\015\012hard. And WallAA!
First, remove the green screw on the back, just above the sound card jacks. Next, press the black release latch located just above the Gateway logo on the front of the case. The latch release is a black plastic section of the front and is about 2" wide. Lift the front of the cover up and it will hinge at the back edge.
