How coem when i try to take my graphics card out( transfering parts) it is stuck and when i try to pul, i am afraid that it may snap at the yellow part. Is there a way to take it out without braking the right corner.....

there should be a retention clip holding it in place, do not just try to muscle it out...

Did you make sure you unscrewed it. I know it may sound dumb but I have a tooless case that also has screw holes for cards, I had the card screwed in and the snaps on and forgot I did both and couldn't figure out why my card wouldn't come out after I undid the snaps. lol

Just a suggestion
