Just got a E6410 that did not come with the Biometric / Fingerprint reader. I want to upgrade that and was wondering if someone could confirm the parts that I need
It looks like I will need a Palmrest assembly P/N 2X11P and the biometric module itself
I can easely find the palmrest on ebay or other sites but where to find the Fingerprint reader? What would be the part number and where could I find it, I am guessing that using the one that comes with the E6400 is out of the question (The connetions look really similar though...)
About the only place you're going to find the parts is through Dell - this is a new model.
(in the USA).
Note: think carefully before you do this. It's a major disassembly project and you could well void your warranty. You may be better off returning the system and ordering one with the equipment you want, if the warranty is a consideration.
Thanks, I called them but they could not help me much. They found one part number and told me it was $1.99, I kind of doubt that the full fingerprint reader would be so cheap and also they are out of stock for that. I will call back to see if that was the right part number. Switching the palmrest with the one for the fingerprint / contactless smart card was very easy and took no time at all. But I'm still without the fingerprint reader module and that sucks. But at least now I only need to find the part and remove the keyboard to set it up.
OK, finally got the correct part number: 58F1M and price of $19.99. But dell is saying it's out of stock as well :(
