Trouble removing eMachines T2080 (desktop) cover

    eMachines questions, since Gateway purchased them. I apologize if I am
    incorrect.]

    I have inherited an eMachines T2080 desktop tower, and can't get the
    right-side cover off. This is the larger cover that wraps over the top of
    the machine as well. It comes loose, but only slides maybe 1/2 inch toward
    me and only partially lifts off the tower. It sounds off with a "thunk"
    when I slide the cover toward the rear of the machine, as if it were hitting
    a stop somewhere, but it cannot be lifted up or in any direction, so it's as
    it that stop were permanent.

    The majority of things within the tower are accessible by taking the left
    panel off (the primary one), but I need to get behind the motherboard for
    cleaning, and need to look at the right side of the HD bay.

    There seems to be no diagrams nor advice online at emachines.com for
    removing this thing. Any ideas?
