My gateway ZX4351 is too loud.. How do I open the case and clean the fans?


Depends if the fan's can even be cleaned. There will probably be several screws you will need to remove on the back, along with the stand. The edges may need to be pried open, preferably with a plastic pry bar so you don't damage the case. Once the case is open unscrew the fan and see if it has a rubber stopper in the center, possibly under a sticker. If it does then you can open that and add a drop or two of sewing machine oil and it should be quiet after. If it isn't then I'd just replace the fan.

How Do I remove the cover from a Gateway 500 series???


Like this Gateway SE?

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/2800071/280007101.shtml

On the back of the computer remove the screw from the top middle.
Now remove the screw on each outside edge, down towards the bottom.

Hold the outside shell, or computer cover. Push the inside forward.
The computer cover comes off like a shell, or bonnet.

If this is a reference to a Gateway 500X series, remove the thumb screw/s from the back of the computer, on the right side. (Right side as you are facing the back of the computer) Then slide this Side Panel towards the back of the computer.

Open the tower


Check the case to see if there is a button at the bottom of the back of the case. Sometimes the thin cases like that, similar to dell, open like a book.

Open Gateway ES2 300X case


Most of these towers are vertical style, therefore the big button is just to the left of the Gateway symbol. Push it in and pull the left panel away from the case.
