I am trying to get at hard drive on Gateway 504Gr. I cannot get the side off --- the 'screws' if that is what they are are inverted and too tiny to get any screwdriver in. this tiny things are hold


As you face the front of the Gateway 504gr desktop computer, the Left side panel removes.
Looking at the BACK there are two Thumbscrews to remove.
These are located along the edge of the Side Panel itself;
One located near the Top, and one located near the Bottom.

The thumbscrews may just loosen, and not come out. (Each thumbscrew is supposed to be held on by a small circular clip)

Once they are loosened all the way pull back on the Side Panel using the indented fingergrip molded into the side panel.
Pull back, and then when the panel stops, ease the side panel out.

The Side Panel has 'hooks' made into it, that match up into corresponding slots in the metal computer case frame.
This is why the side panel only slides back so far, then is eased to the outside.

With the Side Panel removed you will note there is a metal frame around the Harddrive. (Harddrive Caddy is the name of the rectangular metal frame)

Remove the power cable to the harddrive, and the data cable.
Remove the one or two Philips head screws which fasten the harddrive to the harddrive caddy.
Slide the harddrive back and remove.

(WATCH your fingers! There are very sharp metal edges present!)

Have any additional questions concerning this please post back in a Comment.
