What make and model of computer do you have ?

If is an OEM model (HP, Dell etc) then there could be any number of ways that the left-side panel comes off or swings away from the rest of the case.

On the rear of the case are there 2 screws holding the left side panel on ? If so then remove them and slide the panel rearward for about and inch. The panel should then be able to be lifted out and away from the case.

If there aren't any screws holding the left side panel on then you will need to refer to the product manual. There are many ways, some bizzare, in which OEM cases are opened. If you don't have a product manual you might try calling tech support of the manufacturer. Have the product number and its serial number handy.
