Latch won't open after installing new harddrive

I upgraded my harddrive and installed OS without a problem, but after putting the case back together, the latch won't open fully, meaning I need to use the spludger to gently pop it open. I had a similar problem when I had my RAM upgraded last year, but the guys at the shop where I had it done were able to fix it. I'd prefer to not have to go back there again.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Most likely is that the top case was improperly aligned improperly. It's impossible for us to tell over the internet. I would examine how it's binding and reseat the top case.

Hi, it sounds like there may be a small screw lodged somewhere underneath or behind the push-button bar. I think you can remove that bar after you've removed the top cover. From there you can see if there is anything keeping that press bar from being fully depress.
