Question about Dell Inspiron 5160 Notebook
I think my internal wireless card is loose or fried and I want to change it and am not sure how to remove it , is there an esy way to remove it to replace it thank for your input?
Try going here for any manuals or driver downloads you may need. try re-installing the drivers before condeming the wireless card.
If you decide you want to replace it, you will need to first remove the MINI PCI adapter cover from beneith the laptop.
Inside you will probably see a small chip with a wire connected. That is the regular telephone modem for dial up.
The second, bigger one is the wireless card. It should have two metal spring locks on the sides , depress these and it should pop up slightly. then just pull and it should come right out.
getting another just like it may be hard, try ordering one from dell or going to a computer store with knowledgable people and see if they can get you one.
Let me know if you need anything else or have any questions.
