    I'm trying to add some memory to one of our office computers (Gateway 500L).
    I just can't figure out how to open the dang case sot that I can get to he RAM slots.

    Anyone have experience with this case?
    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    That's not it, but it led me to the correct manual.

    Thanks for your help!

    I use to hate working on Gateways, I can build a PC with my eyes closed practically, but getting inside one of their cases use to the biggest pain in the ass. Are their newer systems any better? hehe

    Not unless you know where the secret lever is....

    I spent 30 minutes going through that case trying to figure out how to open it.
    I finally found out that there is a latch in the front of the case that you have to press in... hard....

    That latch looks like a plastic cover for an unused bay in the front of the case.

    Stupid Gateways....
