motherboard.
WARNING: Be careful of the sharp edges
on the add-in card slot cover.
5 Remove the slot cover.
Or
Holding the card at each end, carefully rock it back
and forth until the connectors pull free from the
socket, and then remove the card. Be sure not to
scrape the card against the other components.
Store the old card in the anti-static packaging that
contained your new card.
WARNING: Do not overload the system
by installing add-in cards that draw
excessive current. The system is designed
to provide 2 amps (average) of +5 V
power for each board/card in the
computer. The total +5 V current draw in
a fully loaded system (one with all add-in
card slots filled) must not exceed the total
number of slots multiplied by 2 amps.
A Phillips screwdriver is needed to remove, replace,
or add an add-in card.
