Need to remove the screen from my emachines 5405 laptop

The screen on my laptop (emachines M5405) is broken (went dead),,, Best Buy Geeks told me it would cost $1,100 to replace the screen! I simply connected the laptop to an external monitor and I'm back in business (albeit it's now a desktop). I want to remove the laptop screen completely so that the laptop can fit comfortably in front on the external monitor. Can it be reomoved? And if so, how?
Thank you,
Ronnie

    Thank you for your swift response... I removed the screws but the screen doesn't budge at all. Does it have to be forced off or should it sort of slide off?

    Thanks,

The laptop screen is secured to the laptop with screws at the hinges.
There are usually two screws per hinge. The LCD screen has one ribbon cable and possibly a power connector for the back lighting attached to the motherboard near the hinges. Disconnect these, they are under the plastic panel next to the hinges.

    I have removed and replaced screens on various laptops and have found they slide off - if you position the screen in a vertical position you should be able to lift it off in a vertical position it may be a bit tight.

    You need to disconnect the LCD cables from the motherboard first before you can remove the screen.

WHERE IS THE CMOS BATTERY IN THE EMACHINE M5405, THANK YOU


You will have to disassemble your laptop to get to the CMOS battery. Check out this guide for doing so:

http://dexplor.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=691

You will have to remove the LCD Screen to get to two more small screws under the hinge attachments. Then two more screws to release the cover plate that the Touch Pad is mounted to (the entire remaining half of the main cover). Lift it up gently and the CMOS battery is located to the right of the Touch Pad position.

Need cracked screen replacement. Would like to know the approx. cost


I have the same lenovo 3000 N100 with a dead motherboard.
I could either sell it to you at the price of a screen or perhaps could buy yours with a broken screen.

Please let me know,

Sorry the problems,ur tv it is having,it can't be repair,the tv Plasma screen panel itself it is shorted and dead,that why the tv plasma screen panel have only a third of the plasma screen panel it have a good clear picture and the other 1/3 of the tv plama screen panel is black and dead.The tv that have a broken or shorted dead plasma screen panel it is not worth repairing,because only way repair it is by replacing the whole entire plasma screen panel itself.The tv plasma screen are about 90% of the cost of the tv and can't buy it anywhere else except the tv corporations dealers themselves.Sorry tv now,only can be salvages for those electronic boards for parts that it.

Lcd screen cracked, are they interchangeable


hello, to start of, NO, not all 15.6 inch LCDs are same. They all vary from different brands and models of the laptops.
Here is what i would recommend, go to ebay.com and look for a used or new screen, if you are not comfortable installing it your self ask a repair shop for installation price.
just cor comaprision you can ask for manufaturer's price to replace it but I am positive if you didn't purchase extra "Screen protection" it will probably be not worth price you will get from "eMachine".
Here is Link from eBay someone selling screen for your laptop:

Do your research before you buy it, see it is the route you would like to take.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Kind regards,

Hi there Eliot.
It does sound like a graphics issue, go here and select "downloads" for all the drivers for that computer .
