TROUBLE REMOVING OLD AGP CARD

The Annoyance:

I want to upgrade my AGP card with a newer model, but I can't seem get the old card out of the slot.

The Fix:

A single screw at the chassis secures every expansion card. You did remove the screw, right? Right. Once you remove the screw, ease the card edge connector from the slot. Remember that a fast AGP card (such as an 8X card) may include a retaining clip at the rear edge of the slot. Lift the front edge of the card until the retaining clip disengages and frees the card, or gently pull the clip aside to free the card.
