The very first thing to do is to remove the battery from the laptop before starting the screen replacement.

Next is to use a flat screwdriver to remove the screw covers from the plastic bezel as in the image below. The covers are made of plastic or rubber. Under the covers you will find the screws which must be removed as well.

After removing the screws put your fingers between the laptop screen and the plastic bezel and start pulling on all sides until the catches releases. This must be done firmly but carefully to avoid snapping the plastic bezel. Use the image below as a guide.

Place the screen face-down and this time you will see the cable connections at the back. The connection is held down with a clear tape. This tape must first be peeled up as in the image below.

After peeling up the clear tape you can now do the disconnection of the cable. If your laptop is an Emachines E442, E430, G640 and G725, you will find out you may have a 15.6 or 17.3 LED instead of the CCFL. The connection will look different from the CCFL type. I have included a picture of the LED and its connection.
Next is to disconnect the inverter backlight cable at the bottom of the screen. The inverter provides power to the screen backlight. If the inverter is damaged, the screen will work but there will be no lighting. Disconnect the backlight cable to finally free the screen from the laptop.
If your laptop comes with LED as the Emachines E422, E430, G640 and G725 will sometimes come with the backlight wires and inverter will not exist.
For the CCFL screens first unscrew the inverter screw and disconnect the cable.

At this point the screen removal process is complete. To install a new screen carry out the proceedure in reverse order. Do not forget to reconnect the camera. Good Luck!
