Replacing the card is not hard usually just like changing a hard drive unless you are unlucky to have a machine that needs taking apart to replace so just what is the machine again>> I might be able to find something for you.

Changing out a hard drive sounds pretty intimidating as well honestly. My laptop is a HP Pavilion dv6-6135dx Entertainment Notebook PC.

No mate it is a piece of cake look at this Youtube



this is if you are going to replace it with another - the small holder you can but cheap and have it already attached to the new drive.

In a lot of laptops the drive just pulls straight out of a fixed socket on the motherboard.

Caution Most of the laptop lids the crews cannot fall ot but some do so be careful not to drop any loose ones as they horrors to find. I do all my taking apart on top of a large white bath towel that is taped to the table top and dropped screws will not bounce anywhere - they stay where they fall

PS Sorry about the awful music the person plays during the video.

Thanks for the video, and the warning about the music! It doesn't look too hard at all, I'm still nervous about it, but since I use the net for work and school I have to do something. I'll give it a go and cross my fingers. One more question, does it matter what sort of card I get to replace mine? Does it have to be something specific and is there something I should look for to make sure that I wont be getting slow internet speeds? Thanks again for all your help, I appreciate it!

Ok sistek another video for you
this fellow does go on a bit but he does bring up another thought to me is it actually a Ralink adaptor.
Now good news is you can find out in some detail what there is inside your machine see this little ditty of mine

Using HW Info general components

DownloadHW Info and pick the right bit version - HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download - (or copy andpaste this site into the search bar) If you do not need the running informationin the smaller right hand panel close it. In the left hand window click on the+ for the individual device groupings and they will open out to the variouscomponents.

Go onopening out further until you get to the device itself. click on it and it willhighlight. In the right hand window there will be a very detailed descriptionof that device as in brand, speeds model number etc etc These are very detailedand are just what is needed for searching for drivers etc.

See my picfor an example - in this I have opened out one my components and then highlighted one of the one you need andyou can see the detail.
