I wanted to change my gpu until i realised my case has no screws at the back besides the psu ones.
There aren't any at the sides or at the front either.
I can't find a button or a lever anywhere either.
How am i supposed to open the case if there are no screws or buttons?
Any help is appreciated.
This is the case.

If that is your case, then what's highlighted below, you should be able to remove to grant access to the case interior. You may not even need a screw driver. They may be just "thumb screws".
Tried to unscrew the ones you marked but they didn't even budge, tried with my fingers and a screwdriver.
I don't see any other screws besides the psu ones, could be that this case i un-opable.
 
I guarantee you that the case can be opened.
Otherwise, how could they get the components inside or service them??

The question is how??

What is the make/model pf your pc?
There usually is a maintenance manual available for servicing.

It certainly looks like the screws circled in red above are the key.
Sometimes such screws are overly tightened during assembly.
Are they really screws or, perhaps they are rivets?

Look to see if one of the front panels will pull off.
There could be a lever inside to release a side cover.

Look at the seams of the side covers to see how the cover might slide off.
Perhaps there is a securing screw on the bottom of the case.

The only way this case would not open is if they riveted the panels. Which I highly doubt. You may not even have screws as someone may have removed them and couldn't get the panel off, so you may only need to get the panel off.

Alright ya'll right, i watched some videos with the exact same case and it's those two screws. Just need to get the exact screwdriver.
Yeah, I don't think those are phillips (plus), but from what I can tell (pic is too blurry to be sure), they are like the HP screws which are torx in the center and minus on the outside.

They will be tight too as the threads aren't usually cut very well in thin cases like this so you'll be making threads whenever you put in or remove the screws. :(
