So, turn off and unplug your computer. Find a correct expansion slot for your video card. Install is even more simple if you are changing the cards.

Although it is difficult to mistake, because the card cannot fit into the wrong slot, be care not to confuse the thin memory slots for the video card slot.

Remove the computer case insert that corresponds to the slot on the motherboard. Take a note that some cases are removed by unscrewing, others have punch out inserts. Put your video card in the slot slowly. The shiny metal bracket of the card edge should face toward the back of the computer. You should line up the card bottom notches with the slot ones.
