I am upgrading my Graphics card and power supply . I have managed to unplug and label everything except the 24 pin plug that goes from the mother board to the old power supply . I have released the little clip that holds it in , but I cannot get it unplugged . I do not want to force it since I am not interested in replacing my motherboard .

Any ideas ? Tricks ? hints ?

Thank you in advance .

Sometimes they take a little force to remove. I typically pull and wiggle, just a tiny little bit, to work them out. Just make sure you use your thumb to hold down the tab.

I work on old computers all the time, and sometimes those things can be a real pain to get out. When I see the motherboard bending, I just wince. :) Luckily, these computers(or their parts) are just for resale, they don't belong to anyone, so if we break something... it's not a huge deal.

I'm glad you got it.
