Clarification Request
Is the PCIe slot broken?

All mine have a latch at the front (the end away from the video connectors) and between that and the metal mount on the rear all mine are solid.

Is there something not told here? Such as some custom case?

What card and what computer?

Answer
Bracket

This sounds like a card that came with a low profile bracket attached.

If there is no full height bracket in the box ask the maker to supply one.

If that does not work return the card and get a different one.

Yes Bracket!!

The metal thing that attaches the gpu to the pc case. I got a short one that came with a tiny case PC. Since that computer broke i salvaged the parts. I now have a new computer with a larger case so i had to take the metal bracket off. It sort of dangles loose inside the case. It feels like everytime i try to plug the HDMI in it is about to snap from the motherboard! And i have an Nvidia GT420 1GB DDR3. Attached Picture:

Unless you get lucky and can find a full height bracket that will fit you have two choices.

Mod the half height bracket and case so you can clamp it in place.

Shop for a new video card.

From the link that Robert provided,
