How to Remove PCI Cards

When you want to upgrade your computer, one way to go about it is to replace some of component cards that are inserted into your motherboard. These PCI, PCIe and AGP cards normally control video, sound or network connections for the computer, and when they get outdated, replacing them can greatly improve your computer's performance. Before you can add a new card, you need to be able to get the original card out.

PCI-E cards


Step 1:
Power off your computer and remove all the cables from the back of it. Make a note of where each cable is plugged in, so that you can get everything plugged back in correctly when you are done.
Step 2:
Rotate the computer on a table so that the back side is facing you. Tilt the computer to the left and lay it down on the left side.
Step 3:
Remove the one or two screws holding the right side, which is now on the top, to the computer. Pull the side panel back, then lift it away from the computer. Your specific computer model may open differently, like with a level on the bottom of the side panel, or a button on the top of the computer, but the vast majority of computer cases slide open and are secured with screws.
Step 4:
Locate the PCI card that you want to remove. If you stand over the computer, the cards will be located in the bottom right corner.
Step 5:
Unscrew the small screw that holds the metal plate on the end of the PCI card to the back plate of the computer. Keep the screw somewhere safe, since you will need it if you want to install another card in the slot later.
Step 6:
Hold the PCI card by the two top corners. Pull it straight out of the socket. If it is not coming out cleanly, gently rock the card back and forth until it comes free.
