I went to install memory in a friend's case today, expecting to be in and out in 10 minutes (which was good because I only had 20 minutes before a meeting). I couldn't open the case! I've opened hundreds of cases without problem, but could not force, wedge, or pry this thing open!

It had a model # of 91-96320-DOS, and was an A-Open case from around 2003. I have to go back tomorrow to get this memory in. Anyone have ideas on what I'm missing?

There were 2 thumb screws on the top of the case which I removed. I couldn't find any buttons or slides, and prying the lid got me nowhere. Any tips?

Here is the only case picture I could find: http://www2.dealtime...ER-91-96320-DOS

Never mind, I looked back at the link and found it referenced as a H340D case. Searching that I found what I needed. http://global.aopen........&Model=2482

Thanks to anyone who may have been looking into this!

THANKS!!! Your link helped me find the manual for my case. I found this system after someone put it out for the trash (with the Hard Drive, HDD Bay and IDE cables removed). I couldn't seem to get it to ventilate properly which caused the HDD to get warmer than it should and caused the CPU fan to run high and extremely noisy. Now I see why, the manual shows that it is supposed to use the newer skinny round IDE cables, not the usual wide flat ones which I had put in there. I may also be able to find the HDD bay now.

Thanks again.
