Very good guide, just one error, step 11 comes first then step 10. You can't lift the card before remove the screw.

First time I've cracked opened up a computer in decades. This step by step guide gave me the confidence I needed! Thank you so much. It took me longer, about two hours with stopping to label screws and things but everything is up and running again. I'm so happy!

I would not recommend disconnecting the wifi card. the connectors are tiny. if you screw up, best case you need a new wifi card, worst case you are going to need to replace the antenna, and that isn’t fun.

After the battery replacement? do we need to do anything else for calibration so that the Alienware knows that it is a fresh battery and battery cycle ... as i have heard that you need to repeat 3X the process of discharging and charging for calibration. or can we just plug and play? I am getting a new battery for mine soon. Thanks =)
