How to remove my graphics card + replacing it

My computer monitor and sound randomly shuts down and not responsive while playing high FPS games. I am then forced to shut down and I am assuming it is my graphics card's problem because of similar problems on other forums about this card.

I want to replace my Geforce GT 240, hoping that will solve my problem. How do I go about removing it?



There is no screws or push-pins to help remove the graphics card but a black clip of some sort circled in red.

Also, will this graphics card be able to replace my old one?

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

what kind of system do you have?

the card you are thinking of getting requires a minimum of a 500W power supply and 2x 6PIN PCIe power connectors.

in the back of your case, on the inside you should see the screw that holds in your video card
