A Details Guide too remove the Disk.

On the plastic sides of the case, near the back, there are 2 holes - one on each side. Inside these holes are recessed plastic tabs. You should be able to look in the holes and see part of the tab.
They don't take much force, but if you insert a straightened paperclip or coat hanger, just enough to push the tabs a couple of millimeters, you can then slide the top half of the case forward and off.

This generally means you have a hardware failure in the drive or enclosure. The simplest way to test which is to have a hardware tech move the drive into a new enclosure and see if it works.
This will void your warranty if you do it, so, if the drive is under warranty and there are no files you consider valuable on the drive, call the manufacturer for warranty support.
If you value the data more than the drive is worth then take it to your local hardware vendor and ask them to test the hard drive in a new enclosure. Good odds it will work this way but if not you may need the help of a data recovery specialist.
In North America I use Armor-IT, if you are in a different region and the new enclosure fails to garner results, comment back with your region(Country, State, City) and I will supply you with the closest reputable facility.

This is one of the mean tricks that the industry uses to discourage people from opening things and then totally ruining them.
What about getting yourself a 5-star-shaped screwdriver? Ask your hardware store guy.
Too expensive? Well - I have a lot of different simple slotted screwdrivers. Normally I find one that fits into 2 corners of these "miracle screws". If you don't have fitting one use a cheap one that is slightly too large to fit and grind it down just to size.
The same trick works with the other kind of "discouragement screws" that have ALMOST a normal slot --- but there's an elevation in the middle of it. A slot screwdriver with a ground-in **** in the middle (Dremel tools work fine) does the trick.
