Question about Gateway 504GR PC Desktop
I believe that tower has a plastic clip on the back of it to open the tower. Just pinch the ends and the door will pop open. This looks like a similiar Gateway tower I'm working on for a client right now.

There are two screws on the back of ur tower for each side supporting plate .remove the side plate which is on the other side of ur motherboard.then just blow out all the dust with a air blower.

Tips for a great answer:
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
First clean your computer of dust you could use a fine air blower from a compressor or a can of compressed air whatever you use make absolutely sure there is no moisture in the airlines
if the fan in your computer is constantly running to cool down the cpu and it is normal for it to increase it's speed, your fan should run quietly even it increases the rpm.
But if you hear a loud noise in the fan, i think there's something wrong with it.
I suggest for you to check the fan if it's coming in contact with anything. If the fan is visible while your computer is operating, you can observe it to know what is really happening.
I don't know what type of fan hp uses on their computers, maybe something is loose already on the fan so better check it or bring it to an hp service center.
make sure your CPU has thermal paste
your CPU might be getting hot making you computers fan to run consistently
hope this helps
