Default Graphics Card

I want to remove my graphics card in order to fit a cooler but I cannot unplug the power connection by hand. Is it OK if I use pliers to force it off or am I likely to damage the plug? The card is an ATI Radeon 9800.

pliers bad, tender loving care good. Try to take the card out of the slot, and softly wiggling the cord out. just be patient, and work with it, hardware always sucums to tenderness.

I dont understand why you cant remove a video card. Yet a APG 9800, what kind of computer you have? Such as Dell, Compaq ect.

I have a Dell computer. I can remove the card from the AGP slot but I cannot disconnect the power supply plug.

Call and ask Dell if thats upgradable. Dell builts computers like that. Once you ask, they are going to want you to buy their video card.

I have been able to remove the card and fit an Arctic VGA Cooler.
It works well now. Thanks for the help.
