Warning: When removing or installing a card, handle it only by the edges. Do not touch its connectors or any of the components on the card. Lift the card straight out from the connector to remove it, and insert it straight into the connector to install it. Do not rock the card from side to side and don't force the card into the slot. Once the replacement card is installed, pull on it gently to check that it is properly connected.

  1. Release the small locking clip at the front of the card's logic board connector by pushing the clip up toward the media shelf.
  2. Holding the card by the top corners, gently pull up the card and remove it from its expansion slot.
