SOURCE: How do I remove the
It looks like it wont be easy, I looked up the PC and it seems the only way would be to open it completely. Basically you will have to at least have to remove the entire back cover, possibly more to get access to the ram.

Caveat: I'm basing the following on a photo of your computer model on the Gateway website. It appears the rear cover is secured by snap hooks around the perimeter. You'll need to make some tools to pry it off. Get a strip of oak or similar hardwood. Cut three pieces 3 1/2" to 4" long x 3/8" wide by 1/8" thick. Taper one end of each piece to 1/16" thick. These are your "crowbars." Now, remove the port cover on the back. Look for and remove any screws through the back cover (all around the back). Do not remove the screws on the AC power socket. Next, look in the seam between the front and back covers, especially along the bottom, for any latch slots. Study these closely to see which part snaps over the other so you pry in the proper direction. Probably you will have to lift the back cover over a latch hook on the front cover. You may have to start with a thin flat-blade screwdriver, but your object is to get the parts separated enough to get the wood tools in between the parts. Slide these along the gap, doing the pry/lift at each hook (straight prying without the lift may break the latches). Typically there are four of these on each side, but there may be a fifth one in the center of the top because it's curved. Work slowly and carefully. The wood tools are preferred because they are less likely to scar the plastic. Once you have the cover off, you should be able to find your way to the RAM slots rather quickly.

Remove the two rubber feet from the bottom, remove the back cover plate, unscrew the single silver screw, take a flat head screwdriver (Thin) and push down on the silver face plate from the backside of the computer where you removed the two rubber feet.
Shouldn't have to push too hard. This will release the case plastic.
It is the silver painted plastic that unsnaps from the main body.
