How do I remove my graphic card on a Dimension 9150

This question has suggested answer(s)

I've never switched graphic cards before on any pc.

And now it shows that I have a dimension 9150 and I have no idea how to remove the graphic card.

Here's a picture

  • There is a tab on the bottom of the PCI-E X16 card that releases the card after the screw that holds in the tab is removed.

    If this is not clear then you may need to get a qualified service tech to do this for you.

    If a "piano" bracket (for full-length PCI-E cards) is present on your computer, rotate it upward by pressing the tabs on the side of the bracket toward each other.
