Ok, I never got any response to my first post about a problem. But thats ok, I now have another question and hope anyone can help.

On my Acer Pc I want to install a Tv card. But on this PC, there is a new different kind of slot-covers (or what they are called in English)
The covers on the back-panel that have to be removed before a card is inserted.

Someone here tells me they must be just breaked and dragged loose. But they sit incredible tight. So when I try to break and drag, the whole
backplate seems to begin bow. So I dont dare to put on more pressure.

Can anyone tell me how this is done, which way you move it, or link to any illustration on the net, please :thumbsup:

They can be tough to remove on some cases. I have a pair of dikes/wire cutters that I use to snip a couple of the joints, and then it is easy to break the rest of the tab out.
