For the 300S, there should be three screws on the back, one for the add-in card retainer, one for the power supply, and one for the release mechanism, sort of in the middle. Undo this screw. This allows you to push the release tab on the front, which is up and to the left of the usb ports. While keeping the release mechanism engaged, the left side panel will swing away from the case, hinging in the rear of the case. Viola, finally got into this old pos!

It is pretty easy. Once you depress the tabs on the side of the case, gently push on the drive bays (toward the back of the case) and it should all just slide out the back.
The front face plates can be removed gently too. On the start button end, the grey piece needs to be pushed toward the USB port end. Once it has been unsprung, as it were, it should pop off. The plate below it can be removed by placing a key (works best) into one of the two wide slots to slightly depress the tabs. It then rotates off, as the tabs on the other side act like hinges.
I just got one of these pc's and I have just finished painting it. I looks sweet!

How do I install wifi on my old Gateway 300S desktop? It doesn't seem to

You have 2 options... 1. Purchase a USB WiFi adapter that's compatible with your current OS, which I'll assume to be Windows XP 2. Purchase a PCI WiFi card card that's compatible with your current OS, which I'll still assume to be Windows XP... PCI is better, but you'll have to physically open up your computer to install it. Either case you'll have to install software drivers for your chosen device.

I have a gateway mfatxstl kth 300s, All the power wires and master slave ribbons were unplugged. How can I get a diagram on how they should be plugged in? thank you Rod

hi rod, first of all u have to find out manufacturer and model of mainboard, then get a manual plus drivers for the windows version u use
(there are often on/board sound chips and ethernet(networking) cards on the board, therefore the drivers) from the manufacturers homepage or gateways hp.
the manual will tell u where to put all the power and data cords.
for how to wiring up mainboards etc. try to search tutorials on youtube!

good luck
