On the Inspiron 5100, the wireless card can be accessed thru a door on the bottom of the laptop.
1) Remove AC power and Battery
2) Turn the computer over, loosen the captive screw (labeled "circle C") in the modem/Mini PCI card cover, and lift the cover away from the computer.
3) Disconnect the Wireless card from the attached cables. These are the Antenna wires.
4) Use your fingertips to carefully spread apart the securing taps on each side of the Wireless card until the card pops up.
5) Remove the Wireless card.

They were all successful businessmen located in cities on the Eastern seaboard. Grandma, however, was in Chicago. And now she was alone.
The three sons convened a meeting to discuss what to do about grandma.
“I am worried most about her security,” said John. “With grandpa gone, someone could take advantage of her vulnerability; if they broke into her house, she wouldn’t know about it until she confronted them.”
Mark said that uprooting grandma was not an option. “She would just not even consider moving East,” he said. “So we have to figure out another plan. And she certainly is not at the stage where she would be a candidate for a nursing home.”
Ted said he felt the answer is some kind of device that would warn her if there was any intruder threatening any part of her house. “We should look into what is available out there, short of a huge, complex, expensive security system that would be overkill,” he said.
Each of them checked around with friends and family members to gather ideas. They got plenty of them, but none seemed practical or appropriate for grandma – until John’s wife, Jean, talked with her mother-in-law, a widow herself. “She has a system that alerts her to anyone who might be a potential intruder threatening any part of her home,” Jean said. “Not only does it warn of the approach of an intruder, it can provide her information about when her guests have pulled into the driveway or even when her newspaper has hit the front porch.”
John, Mark and Ted all agreed it was something they had to look into. They liked what they found. They found it at It is called Voice Alert System-6 and they were impressed with its versatility, its ease of use and the price! Voice Alert System 6, they found, is a new annunciator system featuring wireless PIR sensors transmitters and a remote receiver/speaker base unit. Grandma can record her own alert messages, and then she will hear her own message played back to her when activity is detected in an area that is being monitored.
The system has the capacity to record six different messages from up to six different monitored areas. So she could have six transmitters, reporting any activity to her from her front door area, the back door, the side door, the driveway/garage, the garden and the tool shed. This would cover all the potentially vulnerable areas which she would want to be protected.
The brothers were particularly impressed with the systems’ wireless PIRs features: all-weather protection, adjustable mounting and sensitivity and the ability to send a signal 300 feet through walls and up to 1000 feet in open space.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, the boys decided to split the cost of the unit and five additional motion sensors and planned a trip to Chicago to celebrate Mother’s Day – and grandma’s independence.
Her favorite part of the Voice Alert System? The unit that protected her beloved flower bed from potential kids or pets who might trample them.

For some reason, FIXYA changed the "verb" in your sentence to "four-asterisks".

So, the most-important word of the sentence has been hidden!

Call? Visit? Hear? Kiss? Care? Help? Remember? Touch?

Try plugging in a USB mouse and see if the right click works on that. If so then you probably have a defective right click button on your laptop. You will need to have the "palm rest" (the plastic top portion) replaced.
