  1. Double face tape, some sort of mechanism inside the case that make it block ... Even if you pull it as hard as you can nothing happens ?

  2. Hi --- I am at this very moment trying to do the same thing. :( So far all I see is palecurve here on tomshardware else who had the same problem:

    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/336473-28-removing-stock-gateway-dx4860-ub33p

    The Gateway instructions (found by Googleing "removing power supply") "point" to a 5th screw but I am having a hard time finding it.

    Will let you know if I find anything else!

    Thank you. I was finally able to get it out using a mini pry bar. I didn't see the tab so I had to do it the hard way.
