Replacing the battery of an Alienware 15 involves removing the memory, solid state drives, and palm rest.

For your safety, discharge your battery below 25% before disassembling your device. This reduces the risk of a dangerous thermal event if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

    • After turning the computer off, close the display and turn the computer over.

    • Then, use a spudger (#4) to lift up the panel. You can also use your fingernail to lift it as well.

    • Turn the computer back over and open the display to the point where you can press the power button.
