In both situations you need to take apart the notebook. I'm not sure if is a guide for the specific notebook. If there is a guide and you follow the guide you will not have any problem.

We unfortunately do not have any guides on our site for this computer yet. However, Dell does have guides for this computer here. Dell calls the mother board a "system board" and battery removal is in the "Before you begin" section. Battery replacement is quite easy. Mother board replacement is a fair bit more difficult, but certainly not impossible to do at home. As with any complex repair or dis-assembly, patience, organization and care are musts. Hope this helps you out, good luck.

Phillip, I think louis may be referring to something like the CMOS battery...not quite as easy as the main battery ;-)


Doh! Is this the equivalent of what Dell is calling the "coin-cell battery"? They also have a guide for that and all it requires is for the keyboard and battery to be removed. A bit of a pain but still quite doable!


yep, I think that is it :-)
