How can I open the case for this gateway ES2 300X
Most of these towers are vertical style, therefore the big button is just to the left of the Gateway symbol. Push it in and pull the left panel away from the case.

Thanks, it is on the direct left if you are looking at the symbol.

There is a large, black button on the front of the case. The button looks like it is part of the case, but if you push it will go in. The button is just above the Gateway symbol that is located on the front bezel.
Push the button and lift up the top cover.

Do you have to remove both side panels?

There's a security screw on the back that needs to be removed to allow the front latch to release the side panel. It's the stupidest most confusing case ever. The latch is very hard to see, it's part of the black plastic in the front, just push down on things until you see one move a bit. It's sort of like a car door handle movement.

On my model, there is a broad recessed area on the top of the case.
On the left-hand side of this area (as you face the front), there is a 3-inch-wide, grooved-surfaced latch that must be pressed inward (to your left) to free the left panel. If you are facing the left side of the unit, pressing this latch inward by grabbing the top of the panel as if you were going to pull it off by force naturally presses in the latch, opening the case.
If you're not seeing the latch, note that the top half of the front can be covered by a rotating cover that covers the drive bays. When it is not covering the front, this rotating cover flips up and around, coming to rest on the top of the unit in the broad recessed area.
When this cover is flipped up and stored at the top of the unit, the case latch is hidden and not pressable. Flip the cover back down so that it's covering the drives, and you're good to go.
