Replacing Your Laptop Screen

Laptop screens can be incredibly fragile and can succumb to breakages easily.  If your laptop screen happens to become damaged, it does not mean that you will have to pay out a lot of money on a new computer.  Replacement laptop screens cost a fraction of the cost of a new laptop and can easily be self-installed in under an hour.  They’re the perfect way to repair your laptop on a budget.

Even if you have very little technical knowledge, you should be able to get to grips with replacing laptop screens.  Doing it requires very few tools.  For most laptops, a set of jewellers’ screwdrivers should suffice.  Start by locating the screw covers.  These are usually small plastic caps found around the bezel of the existing display.  Use the tip of a small, flat-headed screwdriver to carefully remove the screw covers.  Then gently remove the screws with a jewellers’ screwdriver and keep them in a safe place.

You should then remove the bezel around the screen.  This should come away easily when you slide a flat-headed screwdriver underneath it.  Don’t force it as this could cause damage.  Be careful not to damage any webcams or wireless antennas that you may have.  You can then remove the screws in the metal bracket surrounding the screen, and carefully move the screen away, resting it a piece of cloth on your keyboard.  You can then carefully unplug the display cable and the inverter.  The new laptop screen can be installed simply by following these steps in reverse.
