Hi.

I am trying to upgrade the video card on my Dell Inspiron 546 desktop with a ASUS HD7750-1GD5-V2 Radeon HD 7750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card, it currently has integrated graphics. I opened it up to put the new graphics card in and there is a WLAN card in the slot. Can I just remove it or do I need to move the WLAN card to another place? I have never changed or added a graphics card myself before so I am unsure if this is going to damage the computer.

Thank you in advance for any answers.

If it is a PCIe x1 card, it should be able to fit into any PCI express slot on your board. The easiest way to find out is to GENTLY see if the card will seat into the expansion slot - don't force it, but sit it on the slot and see if the notches match up.
If I am helping you and I haven't replied to your thread in 3 days, please PM me or bump it

The WLAN popped right out and the new card is in and running perfectly.

Thanks so much.
