This is common in HP cases. I think you have to push it down or to the side. There's usually one on the top too, and you have to turn the screw right below it also... you might have to do that before hand.

That's an acer case. Unscrew the 2 black screws with your finger, then the latch will go down all the way. I've had that exact case.

Yeah you actually do need to force it a bit, not so much that you have to smash it or anything but just push the latch down then pull the door off at the same time and YES you are inside the beautiful internals of a computer.
