Dell refers to this piece as a "Blank Plastic PCI Express Filler Insert"

I hit this button on the side just to see what it was, and this piece popped out.

I can't get it back in now, tried to figure it out myself and got nothing.

Hi,

Take the "Blank Plastic PCI Express Filler Insert" out, push in the button first until it clicks and locks in, then insert the filler back into the hole and push in all the way :thumbsup:

May I note you may have to do such several times to get the system to 'catch up'?

Nice catch E-mu.

You may also need to shut down the system and start up a new?
