You have done half the work toward the solution by removing the thumbscrews. The other half involves sliding a spring-loaded lever above the lower thumbscrew toward the bottom of the case. While the lever is slid toward the case bottom, push on the side panel in the same direction as the screws, i.e. toward the rear of the case. The side panel should slide just slightly, allowing you to then lift it off to access the inside. Note that when replacing the side panel, follow the above steps in reverse order.

When replacing the side panel, note that if the panel is not correctly replaced, the thumbscrews will not be able to be installed as the lock lever will not be set properly.

First take the Desktop and place is face down with the power fan facing towards the ground.
Then unscrew the two screws and place both hands on the entire side panel and press down and slide towards the right, this should work.

I have an acer aspire t180-oa7z. i want to put a new hard drive in. my current hard drive 80gb SATA. what hard drive would you recommend?


For your current spec hard drives can support up to 400GB. So I would like to suggest using 320 GB hard drives, and I see hard drives with this capacity still available on the market.
