I'm trying to open my laptop to insert an SSD, but the back cover won't come off.

I already removed all the screws, but this thing is sealed tight anyways. I tried prying (the openings are too thin), I tried using suction cups (didn't even budge), I tried using force, but the back panel just won't come off. I just got this laptop too, and it already sucks. Is there someplace I can take my pc to that can help (like Geek Squad)? Or can I just do it myself?  I really want to get that ssd in.
