Hi i cant see any sort of lever at all, is it possible dell broke it when they initially installed it. Or is there any other sort of mechanism on some motherboards other then a lever?!

thanks again

A lot of the time the lever is very small and is hidden by the graphics card itself.

You will have to reach under and press the tab to get the card out. It wont be visible directly above.
