Issue Details

The metal bracket that came attached to my PCIe card does not fit properly into the slot in the back of my computer. How can I switch this bracket with another one that will fit my computer?

Solution

The PCIe card should have come with multiple mounting brackets in its original packaging. To switch out the metal bracket attached to the PCIe card with one that will fit your computer, follow the instructions in the card's user manual regarding installation of the other bracket. For example, the PCIe-8371 has instructions for replacing the bracket on pages 8-10 of its user manual.
