    Hi everyone.

    I recently bought an AGP 8x nVidia 7600gt. However, it doesn't fit into my AGP slot. It is loose and I am scared of putting too much force on it that it will dmaage it.

    I'm also not aware of what that tag on the end does?

    The smaller of the two slots is facing the front of the computer. I'm also thinking that it isn't aligned properly.

    Any help?

    Sometimes, certain cards just don't fit on certain boards. I've had to return a couple because they hit against something. A couple other times, I managed to make them fit by shaving off an edge, but this is risky work and no circuit traces can get damaged in the process.

    Arghhh.... Well all the slots look to be in place. I really hope this is not the case, otherwise I am sure to cry. Heh. :(

    If you tell us the manufacturer of the video card and what motherboard you have it will be easier to help.
