    When turning on the comptuer , as it starting
    press the "f8" key.
    This will load the booting menu, where you can select "safe mode".

    After booting the computer inthis mode,
    you should have no problems removing the video.

    good luck

    Sorry that didnt work for you.
    There is a frewware program available here from AD,
    This hopefully will do the trick.
    Best of luck.
