It is very hard to tell from the MB picture if there is any type of retaining device or not!
I have put a couple of arrows where you should check see below;

This suggests that there is a locking device of some sort then, see the .jpeg I have attached and note the arrow, is that a lever? if not check the other side of the slot, if there is no lever it may be a spring loaded plastic pin that you draw out, remove the card and allow the pin to return back.

Note: The older MBs that only had pci slots did not have locking devices, AGP and PCI-E however do.

and someone from somewhere else said this:
I happen to have my case open at the moment. The little pin that hold the card is only about 1/6" inch, and you would pull the tab towards the capacitor. Can you lift that end of the card while pulling the tab?


You can't see the pin, but it is attached to the plastic tab that is covered in dust in your picture. The tab is attached to the card connector. The capacitor is the round black thing that looks like a miniature soda can. Both of these are in the center of the red circle in your pic, the tab is just to the right of the capacitor.

do u think it's this?

I am sorry Fang'gar but I cannot see much in your picture, I can say however what your arrow is pointing to is nothing to do with it.
Please remove the add on card in the PCI slot next to your video card so you have more room and better visibility to work.

Please refer back to my picture and info in post #36 for where you should be looking

Please see my post #5 regarding using the MBs integrated video chip, remove the add on video card first!

Hi Fang'gar
Your PC has an add on video card GeForce 7500LE + the MB has an integrated video chip, first in Safe Mode try updating the drivers for the add on video card available @ http://h10025.www1.h...356770&sw_lang= if this does not resolve the issue let us know and we can look at other options which include reseating the card and removing the card and using the MBs onboard video chip, links below to help.
