Yes they can be replaced.
Some are soldered on the motherboard, which is annoying, but it's still not a tuff job to replace one.
I'm not sure about yours yet, I'm looking.

Been digging and I can't find anything specific to your model.

We need a "Dell guy" to wander through about now..

the 2650 has it sodered on to the motherboard and i wouldnt suggest replacing it, you can try but there is a chance (depending on your sodering skill) that you will permanently damage the motherboard.
