Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook
I broke the LCD screen on my Presario 700 CM2130 series laptop. I plan to replace it with a used screen and install myself. There seem to be many different screens that fit this brand/type laptop. Most of the sellers just list them as Presario 700. How to I find the right sized replacement screen for my particular laptop? Are they interchangeable?
I have the same model of laptop; and not had a problem swapping with other X-series screens taken from Compaq/HP and IBM laptops. (My laptop is a bit 'incident' prone, and is +70% by weight replacement parts.)
As for assembly/disassembly and a (very) partial replacement part list, HP publishes the Service Manual(pdf) online.
Also, if you have a model with an aluminum heat sink take this opportunity to remove the sliver solder attaching the aluminum/magnesium heatspreader, and silver paste-- (someone in QC failed highschool chemistry, remember the galvanic series ?). A hard eraser will remove the worst of the rust, use an odd bit of pottery if you need a mirror finish. I then reccomend using a good latex-ceramic paste, your laptop will then avoid the spontaneous shutdown issue.

Not too many screens are interchangeable, be CAREFULL ! if you are good with your hands and are willing to take it apart, the best thing to do is first rmove the battery, press and hold the start button for 1 minute,,,, this discharges the electricity stored by the capacitors in the comp. as your looking at the screen,you'll see the rubber cushions on the bezel,,,, the trim you could say around the screen,remove them and you should see small screws,FYI you may want to buy a small screw driver set if you don't have one, remove the screws.then you remove the bezel this might be tricky as the bezel is clipped around the outer sides so be CAREFULL, you may even need a butter knife to do this,but BE CAREFULL!.once you've don that you can access the screen screws. You may even want to take pictures as your going along so if you get confused when you put it back together it wont be so bad. Once you've got the screen out ,now you can get all the information on the back and do a check on a new screen. FYI if you see any liquid oozing out you must not be in contact with that, it is hazardous to health if consumed so BE CAREFULL! also shard glass is a hazard, it is manufactured micro thin so once again BE....... ok i guess you've heard it enough! if you cant find a supplier for the screen, leave a message here and i can check with my suppliers. but get all the numbers you can find on it as some suppliers will need most of them. Good luck! JLS
