Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook
Apparently my laptop received a hard knock from somewhere and the LCD screen has cracked internally. Everything else seems to be working and I have the opportunity to pick up some other laptops (same model) being sold for spare parts pretty cheaply. May even end up with a couple of working models, but how do I replace the screen? I've taken the screws out of the hinges but the next step is not obvious to me.
You'll need to remove the screws holding the screen bezel (the plastic around screen) on...they'll probably be under little circular plastic or rubber covers....gently pry these out as they'll go back in place when you reverse the procedure....should be four of them....Gently pry the bezel away from the main screen housing ...once thats done....you'll need to unscrew the screws holding the screen onto the hinge plates...(again should be 4 of these)...screen should now be free
NB be careful when screwing in the new screen to the hinge plates as overtightening can sometimes crack the screen
