1. Follow these step-by-step instructions on how to locate your video card.
2. Unplug the video card from your computer, and remove it from the motherboard first.
This is crucial because you want to avoid unplugging or removing your video card while it’s still attached to any components on your computer’s board! Doing this wrong and putting too much pressure on one of these fragile parts could cause severe damage (and possibly void your warranty). So take care when removing this part at all times—especially if you’re dealing with something brand new like an Apple MacBook Pro or Dell Precision Tower 5820 workstation computer; those machines have tiny boards that can be damaged easily by forceful handling during removal/installation procedures.
3. Use plyers to disconnect any connector that is not connected to anything in your computer.
The video card connector is the part of your computer that connects the video card to the motherboard. It’s usually a tiny piece of metal and can be located on either side (or both) of your video card, depending on your model.
4. Pop the screws out of the plastic cover and set it off to the side. Next, a small flathead screwdriver will pop out the screws inside.
Make sure you don’t lose any screws or plastic pieces! Also, ensure that your video card is recovered because if this happens, we will have some problems with our computer!
5. Now remove a bit of plastic with a small flathead screwdriver on the side of your video card; after this, you can slide it out quickly.
6. On the left side of your video card, you will need a small flathead screwdriver to pop up the metal latches, then pull off those latches, allowing you to slide out your video card without any issues.
7. After removing all of those latches, set them aside, take note of where they are located, and recycle them if needed since they only come in one size or different colors per yours (like mine was silver colored). You want to ensure you adhere them back together in their exact position so they will go perfectly when put back into your computer.

You can use glue or tape on the inside of the computer case to keep it secure while working on the main board.
“iTunes” is software from Apple Inc. used for playing, organizing, and carrying digital music and video files for Mac OS X, PC (Windows), iPod, iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. It’s only necessary to run iTunes when transferring files between the computer and portable devices (such as iPods or iPhones). Also, iTunes can manage media libraries on Mac OS X computers; the program organizes the media into playlists.
