2 of the 3 images are 404 missing.

But it looks like a box I used long ago and there is a top plate above the card in the first and only working image that we remove.

Pretty much common sense if you "look it over" carefully finding what maybe used as a catch/latch to include any retaining screws that fit on the video card bracket on the PC case itself. Using the 1st image link, I see a "cover bracket" that hides the retaining screws(if present), remove that to have access to remove the video card's own screw. The video card itself should also have some catch on the frt. and lower part of the card where it seats. Doing both will finally release the card from the slot. Further the cover bracket could only be held in place as it may slide or latch in some way with the PC cover making it hard to access. Of course removing the PC cover then unlatching or removing the bracket cover will provide the full access for retaining screw for video card. Since, i can't see the actual screw it may also be "screwless" and only using the bracket cover and latch as the final retaining assy. for any cards installed.

FYI, all pix were viewable at least for me. I like to comment I wish many problems could be posted in such matter as a pix is worth a 1K words as the saying goes. Thanks
