Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a Gateway 300x Micro-Tower case circa 2002 and I can not open the case, without breaking it. I'm trying to install a new audio card and can't get at the 300x innards. Help!


Answers :

Most of these towers are vertical style, therefore the big button is\015\012just to the left of the Gateway symbol. Push it in and pull the left\015\012panel away from the case.
Hi\015\012
\015\0121.If the keyboard has a CD/DVD Eject key, press it. The Eject key is\015\012usually placed by the volume knob and is marked by a triangle pointing\015\012up with a line underneath.
2.Double-click My Computer .
3.Right-click the icon for the CD, CDRW, or DVD drive that is stuck, and then click Eject.
\015\0124.If the CD or DVD drive door button is a long clear plastic bar on the\015\012front of the PC, press firmly on the right side of bar. Some models\015\012have a button on the front panel of the PC to the right of the hinged\015\012door. Press the button to eject the drive.
5.If the drive door\015\012button is part of the PC case and is covering the actual drive door,\015\012open the door that is part of the PC case and press the Eject button on\015\012the faceplate of the drive.
6.Restart the PC and press the Eject\015\012button on the front of the drive when the first screen appears (before\015\012Windows launches). If the drive door opens this way but does not open\015\012in Windows, another software program is taking control of the CD\015\012driver. Try shutting down or configuring any software programs that\015\012create discs or monitor the CD or DVD drive.
7. If the door still does not open, do the following:
1.Close all programs and shut down the PC.
2.Unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
\015\0123.Look for the small hole on the faceplate of the CD or DVD drive. This\015\012is the manual release. The location of the manual release hole will\015\012vary (see Figures below for possible locations).
NOTE: On some\015\012models it may be necessary to remove the front panel to expose the\015\012manual release hole. Check the documentation that came with your PC for\015\012information about removing the front panel.
