[Troubleshoot] Graphics Card Stuck In the PCIe Slot!

Imgur

Hello members,

I was recently trying to remove my graphics card from my motherboard to give myself more room to work on something. However, I forgot to unlock the PCIe slot before I took it out, and now it is half stuck. I cannot get the lock to budge for the life of me and I cannot get the card back in - it’s just stuck. Any suggestions?

I’ve already removed the screws keeping it in FYI.

My motherboard is a Z370-A and my graphics card is an RTX 2070.

Thanks in advance:)

I had a similar problem. Push the GPU back into the slot then screw it down into the case then unscrew it and hit the lever and it comes up like butter.
