Be careful, as there are wires below connected to the buttons. The empty mini-pci slot Not much there, but that is how it looks. It has to move less than 1cm, just enough to release a series of tabs at the front end of the keyboard. The keyboard is held in place by two small screws under the panel. I assume the wire is for the antenna. First the panel with the power button and other buttons has to be removed.

Are they going to be compatible with an AMD processor or do I have it all fubarred. The short story is that it can be done upgrading the builtin wireless card in the laptop, and it works.
Be careful not to damage the connector, which is very small. I assume the wire is for the antenna. Use some object to keep it upright, in the middle. Insert the new card Insert the card into the connectors, raising it a bit in the back.
Remove these two screws. There is a metallic knob at the bottom of the keyboard, that has to fit into the hole to the left of the mini-pci slot. It helps me too! The keyboard is held in place by two small screws under the panel.

Once the keyboard is placed correctly, it can be slid back into place. I just bought a laptop for my parents with no integrated wireless. It has to move less than 1cm, just enough to release a series of tabs at the front end of the keyboard. The socket is below the keyboard, more or less in the middle.
