The mainboard needs replaced. Typically there is a plastic locking mechanism on the pcie slot and it locks the GPU into place. I suggest not running the pc as these pins can now dead short and create even more problems burning out other components.

I've replaced a few of those connectors and it is very tedious and often unsuccessful repair as noted, shorted pins can damage more than just the connector circuits, it could even damage the power supply.

OK thx for replies im running it for a little while longer then I will unplug. If I insulated the pci lane that would protect the other circuits from shorts right? Then I could use it without that lane?
