How to get a pin out of VGA connector?!?

I have got a pin stuck in my VGA connector. I can't open it up and it's pretty jammed. Any ideas?Thanks!

Answer:

Depends on how far its jammed in, VGA pins are generally a pretty loose ish fit, try some very fine nose Plyers and a scapel or a sharp craft knife, even a pair of fine tweezers would probably get it out. If its snapped flush to the base of the connector, the only thing you could try is pressing the molex package back to reveal the the sockets, then squeeze, lastly on the pcb side of the plug try applying some pressure to the back of the socket where there should be what looks like som L shaped pins soldered to the pcb, if all fails get a new GPU, Ash x
