You've probably found there are no screws, usually the two halves of the case are fitted together with lugs on the inside of the case so that once they are clipped together they are never really meant to come apart because there are no serviceable parts inside.

You maybe able to find the location of one of the lugs with careful inspection, then using a jewellers screwdriver push the first lug in, the case then often pops open slightly, enough to reveal the location of the next lug. Trust me, its a tedious process.

I'm just curious, why do you want to open it?
