  • Step 1 WiFi Card

    Simultaneously slide the battery latches (outlined by the red box) to the dock connector in themiddle.

    This will release the battery. Just slide the battery away from the computer.

    Open up the computer and press and hold the power button for 5 seconds. This drains any powerleft inside the computer.

    This is important, as if electricity remains in the notebook, it can shock you and damage the logicboard.

  • Step 3

    Use a plastic opening tool or a spudger to remove the antennas.

    I use my fingers, but the picture shows and iPod opening tool because most adults have biggerfingers.

    I'm 14, so my fingers are small enough.

    Some E6400 models have a card with three connections-a gray wire in the middle-markedappropriately.

  • Step 4

    remove the one and only philipsscrew securing the WiFi card inplace.

    Step 5

    The card should instantly pop to an angle less than 45 degrees once the screw is removed.

    Now simply pull the card strait away from the slot.

    Install a new card by sliding it in the direction of the arrow and pressing firmly down until it clicks.
