  1. i was trying to boot up my new system and i ran into a wall, after rechecking everything i went to re-seat the new 8800gts in its socket, and i cant get it out...

    its stuck near the tail end, i dont want to break anything and the thing is so large, i cant see underneath it to see whats holding it up.

    any solutions?

    Like I said in the other thread there should be a clip on the back end of the slot that holds the video card in so it doesnt get loose.

    If its there pull it back or pull the tab to one side and try again.

    Be sure the card isnt getting stuck on anything nearby as well.
