Finally click right on - BrightView display assembly spare parts.
Just wanted you to see all the components involved.
Now you see why the Display Assembly must be removed.

BrightView display assembly
Underneath Number 4 in blue, are the various components you must remove, in order to remove the Display Assembly.
They are listed in order, and in blue.
Suggested procedure is to click on each component listed, and in order.
When going to remove the next component in the list;
1) Put your mouse cursor, in the Adobe Reader page number box at the top. Left-click once. Everything in the page number box should now be highlighted in blue.
2) Type 77, or 78.
3) Press the Enter key.
Takes you right back to the page you were on.
(Or use the Bookmarks menu)
The Display Assembly MUST be removed, in order to remove the Display Bezel, and LCD screen.
1) Once the Screw Covers are removed, (I just lightly stick them to the Display Bezel for safekeeping), and the Philips head screws, the Display Bezel is flexed to remove.
Yes I read about it being broken. I would cut out cardboard from a cereal box, that just fits inside the Display Bezel, and lay it over the broken LCD screen.
Then use a thick guitar pick, or similar tool, (I use a Spudger Tool. About $3), ease up the middle of the inside, of the Display Bezel.
It is now flexed up a little bit. Use the fingers of your other hand, move over from the point you are at now, and ease up on the bezel.
The Display Bezel is made of space-age plastic. Pretty TOUGH stuff.
You do have to use care, but it isn't all that breakable.
Of course there are those of us, who could damage steel balls in a sand pile, with a rubber mallet.
The Display Bezel has Latches going around it, on the inside perimeter.
There are matching Tabs on the Display Cover.
When removing, the release of the Latches/Tabs sounds like you are breaking something. Snap, snap, snap.
Just wanted you to be aware.
Keep popping each Latch from it's Tab, and going along the Display Bezel.
Once you are at about 2/3 of the way or less, the bezel will come off.
The LCD screen should be PROPERLY disposed of, and NOT go in household trash.
2) Keyboard Cable:
The Keyboard Cable STAYS attached to the Keyboard. It disconnects FROM the motherboard connector.
The Keyboard Cable is an FFC. Flat Flex Cable.
One example of a FFC,
Note that the Keyboard cable does Not have a connector on the end.
Note also those flat terminal strips of the cable.
The cable MUST be realigned in the SAME position, it was originally before being removed.
For this reason you may wish to make a mark on one side of the cable, and a matching mark on the same side of the motherboard connector, BEFORE removing.
The motherboard connector is a style of ZIF connector.
Zero Insertion Force.
It is composed of two pieces, but does NOT come completely apart.
The larger rectangular bottom piece is referred to as the BODY.
The smaller upper rectangular piece is the Locking Bar.
For your style the Locking Bar flips up to a 90 degree position, or also stated as straight up.
IF, the Locking Bar is broken, and/or the hinge pins on the Body for it, you are looking at MOTHERBOARD REPLACEMENT, and why I am being so detailed about this.
3) Use an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.
Cost averages from $3 to $6. Pretty cheap insurance to make SURE you do Not fry out your laptop.
Here is but one example,
Why worry Joe? Because the Static electricity your body carries, WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside the laptop.
You won't see it, or feel it. It isn't like taking your coat off in winter.
Poof! And you won't even know what happened.
I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case. I feel an Anti-Static Mat is not warranted. (I also do not want my wrist connected to the ground source, of the utility company, and where bumbling utility lineman work on )
You can also set a large metal serving tray (Unpainted), on the table you are working on, and connect to it.
Or a large metal knickknack. (Unpainted)
4) The Top Cover (Palm Rest Cover) also has Latches on it, and the Base Enclosure has matching Tabs. After all of the appropriate screws are removed, suggest use a thick guitar pick, (Or Spudger Tool), and start popping the Top Cover loose.
It pops off similar to the Display Bezel, but does Not flex. (Shouldn't)
5) After you replace the LCD screen, and have the Display Assembly all back together, suggest you not attach it yet. Hook the Video Cable up, and see if the display works first, then turn off, remove ALL power, and reinstall the Display Assembly.
You can find out quick if you got the Video Cable to LCD screen connection on tight, and the motherboard connection.
Searches on the internet for a replacement LCD screen, reveal LED backlighting is used.
Therefore there will be NO screen Inverter.
Make SURE you get the correct LCD screen.
For additional questions please post in a Comment.

It is easy to do. And dont worry about the glass it will all stay together. Usually there are little rubber bumpers around the edge of the Bezel. Pull those off and there will be screws behind them. Take out all the screws and then stick your fingers between the screen and the Bezel and pry it off. Once you have the Bezel off depending on your model you may be able to get to the screws on the side that hold the LCD in. There should be like 4 very small screws on each side of the screen. If you can't get to the screws you will need to remove the screws along the edge that hold the hinge rails to the cover. Let the cover hang back and then take out the LCD screws on the side. Then peel back the tape holding the video cable on the back of the LCD and very gently pull it out. Then pull out the other connector for the inverter and voila it's out. Then just do in reverse to put it back. It's really easy and usually only takes me 20-30 min. Granted I've done tons of these so it make take u a lil longer but theres nothing to be afraid of and is a great learning experience. Watching a YouTube video first is a great idea. It's what I did the first time! Hope this helps u and good luck!

SOURCE: Blank white lcd
Yes, it could very well be a dead LCD unit. I have a LCD in a laptop in the office that has a nasty line running down through the entire screen. We contacted someone about replacing just the LCD portion of it and they said - don't bother. They said it would be more prudent to wait until it dies, and then upgrade to a new computer. It is the nature of the LCD units themselves, when they give up the ghost they give up the ghost.
The fact that you can see everything fine on an external monitor shows that you have lost your LCD. The odds of the cable inside the machine going bad are minimal/tiny to say the least. If they were exposed cables such that they could get crimped, then possibly that could be the culprit. With them being routed inside the unit, it is almost impossible for them to get pinched.
The only other option, and this only works if your machine is still under warranty, is to have HP fix it as part of your machines warranty. BUT, not all warranties cover the screen anyhow. The laptops I have bought required me to purchase insurance on the screen itself.
So, you'll have to determine if you can manage with the external monitor all the time or if you need a new laptop.
Sorry it is not good news for you.

SOURCE: Video problem
Generally this type of problem is the video card, however, it's extremely rare, but sometimes a screen malfunction will override the video out causing the appearance of a bad card. To check this, disconnect the screen, and try the external monitor. If the external works properly, then it's the screen.

ok guys...i have had the same prob and it is now solved...finally...and what an *** about way to build a computer!
The bezel that covers the on and off switch is a snap in piece (it also screws in from underneath)tand you wedge a guitar pick under it and lift and it will pop out. Then you should be able to see the screws that hold the hinges to the main frame, there are two of the screws for each hinge...BRAD justanswer.com)
The screen bezel has 5 screws on the base..3 are acessible from here, 2 are not...These 2 are in the corner and blocked by the hinge...the hinge therefore must be taken apart via 4 screws (2 then you will see 2 more) on the circuitry board...and if you can get this far...the rest is straight forward
