Can't open case of Samsung 700A3B All in One

I've got a Samsung 700A3B All-in-One in-house and I need to replace the hard drive.

Problem is, I can't figure out how to get to the drive (without breaking the case). I've removed all the screws from the bottom but the case does not come apart easily at all.

Google has NOT been my friend!

Can anyone help me to get into this thing?

Thanks.

these are not meant to be opened; so you may have to look for the plastic hooks, and pry them open, all around...

Are you referring to the plastic  mounting frame that a HDD sits in?
Your all in one has a sata or SSD?
I have seen some plastic mounting frames very difficult to snap open. What you coudl do is just replace the entire mounting frame and the new HDD if you can't snap it open without breaking it?

Sorry guys, I've been dealing with health issues. I had the person send the unit back to Samsung. I appreciate the input.
