Hmmm. Well, I don't have an AU13, so I may not be any specific help.
However, most newer motherboards have the locking lever on the AGP slot (as
my MSI KT3 Ultra2 does). The lever works similar to the locking tabs on the
DIMM slots. The lever is supposed to be in the out position before
installing the card, and as you push the card down it pretty much clicks
into place (sometimes it needs a little help). The only time I've changed
video cards on my board it was just a matter of patience and gradually
pulling both ends of the video card and alternately pressing down on the
locking lever.
