I have an old Gateway tower, model ATXSTF, that I want to recycle. I first want to remove the hard drive but can not figure out how to take the back off. Anyone know how to do this? It has several "screws" but they are the type that are round - not flat head or Philips head screws or Allen screws. Thanks for your help.

Look at the side panels rather than the back.

Those round things are rivets by the sounds of it, not undoable except by drilling through,
As mentioned, try a different side

I tried the side and it worked like a charm. Thanks for your help.
