The visual trick helped a lot, my Atari's back together now :) Thanx!

Hi Darrell, thanks for buying!

Hmmm....maybe you aren't pressing hard enough.  You really need to jam
the board into the socket.  Gently but firmly of course.  Try putting
the motherboard flat on your work surface and pressing the CyberTech
Card with the palm of your hand.  This is how I do mine.  If it's in
all the way, it should be really hard to pull it back out.

One visual trick that might work is to put the pins in contact with the
mb, besise the socket. Make a mark on the pins at the top of the socket.
Then try to install it. When it's properly seated, the marks will align
very closely (maybe not perfectly) with the top of the socket.

Please let me know if you have further issues.

Out of curiosity, how many people here have actually received (and

I got mine in today, ordered it on Sunday.  I have a 6 switcher, but
not a heavy 6.  I've taken the Atari apart and installed the card.
Great picture and sound; however, every time I try to reassemble the
Atari the board comes out of the socket.  Any ideas?
