Default How do you open the case of a sony VAIO pcv-7772?

It's one of the crapiest case designs I've seen, I feel like I'm going to have to break it in at least a couple places to take the side off. Is there a trick to opening it?

on my old sony there was a little tab by the top of the power supply (on the back of the case). If you pulled this little tab out of the case further the side would pop off. Believe you me, there are MUCH worse cases than sony's, i repaired a pc for a weird hp model one time that took me 2 hours of bewilderment before I even found a hit as to how the damn thing came apart. There is always a way that requires no force though

There's a wonderful new web site dedicated to helping find just this type of information.
It's located at www.GOOGLE.com. :laugh:
It will direct you to the "Sony VAIO Digital Studio System Reference Manual".
Just go to the chapter titled "Upgrading and Maintaining Components", then drop down to "Removing the Side Panel".

Ok, well it doesn't have the tabs posted in the the manual but at the very top of the case, not exactly near the power supply I found the tab that you pull and it comes off hehe. Thanks guys.

I forgot to drill you down one more step...
The model with the hidden tab was the second down from "Removing the Side Panel".
