Video card wont come out?

1504 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  freudchicken
I undid the one screw that was attached to the casing and I'm almost 100% sure I broke some sort of plastic-latch thingy while trying to push it to remove my graphics card.

The part that faces the inside of my computer will go up easily, but the the other part just wont come out.

I can kind of wiggle it around, but the lower part that's attached to the motherboard just wont budge.

What could I be doing wrong?
Videos on the internet of people taking out their old graphics cards all show them doing it insanely easily. Mine has not been so kind.

CPU : Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 @ 2.50GHz( 4 CPUS), ~2.5GHz
Motherboard: IPIEL-LA3 (Eureka3)
Videocard: NVIDIA GeForce GT 230
PSU: (in the middle of installing a Corsair TX850

These are a large amount of specs on my particular computer.

No, but I did get it out and I am an absolute idiot for not seeing the screw I was supposed to remove.

I have a new problem, though:
My graphics card is in the way of another card thingy that has wires going to the front of my computer (where I have 2 USB inputs and microphone and input holes, im assuming this card belongs to the latter).
I had to take it out to make my graphics card fit.

The wires disappear into the weld at the front of my computer and I cannot manually remove them.

Do I just leave it dangling in my computer casing?
