Default Graphics card stuck in PCI slot

I have an asus 3 rampage extreme motherboard and while trying to pull it out it got stuck and so one side is out but its not possible to remove it. It is basically just stuck.

May sound dumb but there is a clasp on one side usually. Did you remember to remove it? ( Unhook it) If its like mine it snaps back in place. You have to hold it open while you remove the card

Did you take the screw out that holds it in place of the back? And, remember to remove the cable from the card. I think the clasp is the problem. Some clasps actaully pull out, like a release, whereas other clasps you have to pull to the side, and hold. Best to push the card back into the slot then try again, holding the clasp out (or to the side).

Jupiter, he said one side wouldn't come out. We expect he meant the back of the card.

Some slots I know have a spring, that you raise the card at such an angle and pull out.
