Are you simply trying to open the case?

If so, do the following:

1) Perform a system Shut Down
2) Unplug the power cable
3) On the Rear of the case, look for a Scrow to the right edge (center), Unscrew it.
4) Slide the side panel toward the rear of case and it will come off.

How do I remove the front panel on a gigabyte case to install a new case fan

Look on the inside of the case behind the front panel to determine how the front panel is secured to the case.
Depending upon the type of case, remove the side panels or the desktop cover.
Front panels on desktop cases are secured to the case by either screws behind the front panel on the inside of the case, or by plastic locking tabs that needs pushing to unlock fron the case or if the front panel has an opening at the bottom then it may be held in place by friction lugs, in this case pull the bottom of the front panel and it will come away from the case.

Opening the tower of a VGC-RB42B PC desktop Vaio

There's normally some kind of screw or clip on the rear of the case. Every case is different, some have the sides slide off, others have the top slide off and then the sides lifted up, some come off all together. Others have the front pull off (careful not to break it if you try it this way) and then the sides unscrew from behind the front of the case. Good luck

Removing the dvd drive

Occasionally, the front bezel (plastic decorative front panel) of the computer has to be removed (it is usually held in place by clips) for the optical/5.25" devices to be removed. Also check to see that the IDE/SATA cable, audio and power leads have been disconnected from the rear of the device.
