I've been wanting to replace my PSU with a new one. Everything went fine until I stumbled upon a few cables that are directly connected to my fan and LED indictator and a port on the other side which in turn is connected to my PSU. I know this thing is supposed to come loose but it won't even with a screwdriver under it, is there some kind of trick to it/am I pushing it in the right direction?

looks like you got a cable wedged in there thats not supposed to be. I would pull really hard on the plastic pieces, perhaps with a couple pairs of pliers.

sometimes release a psu cable was very hard...
but it will be release if you pull it hard and softly...
just make sure to press/touch the plastic not the cable...if you pull the cable..it will loose from plastic...
one hand on plastic and another hand on plastic...dont you pull the cables...

Thanks for the replies, nothing a good pair of pliers can't fix. This problem has been solved, now I can go and put in my new graphics card.
