Re: Cleaning inside lcd panel for toshiba r15 s829
Remove battery then remove trangular black tabs (2) at the top of the screen. Then remove square silver tabs (4) at the bottom of the flip top. This can be accomplished with either a push pin or sharp knife just get under one corner and peel off. They are just thin pieces of plastic with and adhesive backing. Remove the screws underneath ( 6 in all) with a small screwdriver. Run your fingernail around the entire outside edge of the flip top to pop off the plastic front with screen. Wipe off LCD and inside of the screen with a soft damp cloth; do not spray anything directly on to the LCD. Reverse the above steps and if you were careful you can just reattach the plastic tabs over the screws.

I think the problem is only that your system crashed. So you can try some data recovery software to recover the wanted data from system partition and then reinstall OS, I suggest you can use a free data backup software to create a recover disc once you enconter such a problem you can recover your data and system easily.

I might not be necessary to reset to factory settings. Just go to the Toshiba.us support site and download the drivers for the Tablet PC (that includes the WAcom driver, all the tablet PC extensions). If you have the Recovery CD, you can run it from inside Windows XP and reinstall selectively all you need. Just to set things straight, the screen of the R15 reacts to the Wacom pen only, not to your finger or some other plastic tipped pen.
An alternative is to get a can of compressed air used to clean computers. Put the nozzle on and spray it in every hole you can see without putting the nozzle itself inside the laptop.
Do this outside with glasses on.
You may also want to remove the hard drive and ROM drive.
Take a peek here for more ideas of what is involved.
There are a few are tips for various things in there.
DON'T touch the CPU cooler unless you know what you are doing and have some thermal grease for CPUs to hand.
To make newer laptops last longer between cleaning a good 3 fan cooling pad is suggested. never use a laptop on soft surfaces as the ventilation can act as a mini vacuum cleaner and encourage dirt build up. Soft surfaces also block the vents causing fans to run more and burn out sooner.
You have to remove the screw covers (the black squares around the screen), remove the screws and gentley pry the cover open with yor finger nails or a flat head screw driver, but be careful not to dent the sides with the screw driver. You can then take a can of air and blow the dust out. I would not touch the sensetive screen under neath. You could take a anti static, micro fiber cloth to wipe off the tough stuff.
I need to do this on mine as well. Ive already taken it apart, just have to find a new lcd. the front cover on the screen is held on by 6 screws, 4 on the bottom under the silver stickers and 2 on the top under the black triangular stickers in the corners. Then the screen itself is held on by 8 little screws on either side (4 on either side). Where did you buy the replacement lcd for it, and do you know the part number?
