    It's old, a toshiba satellite 1405-S171 laptop, and the card was described as an Toshiba Satellite 1400 Series Mini-PCI Laptop 802.11b/g Wireless Card. I'm not sure if that's helpful. Thanks either way!

    You are awesome! That was exactly the instructions I needed! It took me a little while to slide the card in correctly - I was worried about damaging it. But once I got it in, no problems. I'm up and running. Thank you so much!!

    This machine isn't that old, and it's still a good machine. The wireless card slot is located on the bottom. With the machine upside down, battery towards you, it looks like there are three covers on the bottom to the left of the battery. The closest to you is the hard drive, the next is the memory, and the cover furthest from you is the wireless card slot. Under the cover you should see two wires, one black, one white with connectors on the end. Slide the card into the slot, and connect the wires. If you're not sure which wire goes where, don't worry about it, they will only go one way. If they are on incorrectly, you won't get a good signal. Keep in mind that you need the wireless drivers in order for the card to work. If you don't have them, you can find them at Toshiba's support site. If you have any problems get back to me, and I'll see if I can work you through them.

Toshiba Satellite 1405-S171 dead screen; external monitor works fine. How do I open case to check video cable connection?


Unless your screen's hinges (pivots) are busted, the video cable ain't gonna come loose on its own.

But if you have to check, it's underneath the keyboard. Remove the plastic strip above the KB, after that, it's three screws (L, middle, R), and you can lift up the keyboard. The video cable is the big bundle right behind the DVD drive.

If you flip it over, you will see three slot covers going from left to right: the disk drive, memory, and wireless card slot covers.

  1. Get a flat head screwdriver and remove the slot cover.
  2. Disconnect the black and white antenna cables from the card
  3. Push the latches outward to release the card.
If you need further help, get the disassembly manual.
