Remove Acer Battery Before Starting

For all laptop repairs it is important to remove the laptop battery beforehand.

Remove the screws from the Acer laptop after taking the cover off. This screw should be kept safely so as to not to mix it up with others.

Laptop Screen Bezel Removal

Place your fingers between the screen and the bezel as shown in the picture on the left and start pulling slightly on all the sides until the bezel is pulled free from the laptop. This needs to be done carefully as doing it wrongly or forcefully will result in snapping the bezel.

After the plastic bezel is removed the next thing is to remove the two screws at the top and all the side screws on the sides as shown in the image. There are three screws on the sides holding the screen tight to the hinges arms. Make sure all the screws are well places so as not to have them mixed up.

Removing the side screws will then free the screen from the laptop leaving only the screen data cable left to deal with. This is the area where utmost care should be taken as the cables are very fragile and snapping it will require you to buy a new one.
