i cant figure out how to remove the gpu, i want to clean my pc but the gpu is blocking everything. it is an aegis 3 with gtx 1070. Picture
 
Well first, you see on the top-right that slot your GPU is plugged into? There is a small lever on the left side of that, push it up to unhinge your graphics card's interface from that slot. Then you will have to look how to unlock that card from that unit. This isn't a normal setup so I'm guessing here, it looks like there's a latch on the left side that may be holding your card in place, if not try looking around to whatever is physically holding the card in place.

The only thing I needed to let you know was that interface connection, if you tried yanking it out without pushing that lever down you could've damaged that slot.

Did you remove the screws that are holding in the video card to the computer? You may need to push down on the release lever while pulling up a bit on the video card. And from the picture you still have the power connected to it, unplug that first. And make sure PC is unplugged from the wall.

Also it looks like the lever may have gotten stuck on the connector part of the GPU PCB. If I remember correctly, those tabs tend to have a gap between the two sides, which the PCB could have slipped into.

Also check on your mono during boot. A lot of mobos come with ez debug leds that can help you diagnose a problem. See if the gpu one comes on and stays on. (You'll have to do some research as to how this works with an iGPU.) It may actually be best if you try this to completely disable your iGPU until you are done testing.
