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 before you lift the LCD off the base, they are under the plastic panel above the function keys next to the hinges.

Here's the link to the Dell page where you can download the manual. You need the service manual--it tells you what you need to know.

How can I access Satellite A215-S4747 hard drive to replace it?


Hi,

Turn the laptop off, remove the battery and shut the lid.

Turn the unit upside down with the back of the laptop face away from you.

On the front left of the underside of the laptop you should see a panel with 2 philips screws, unscrew these 2 screws and remove the cover.

There you will able to access the hard drive for removal and replacement.



Regards.

My laptop was dropped & now the screen looks like it has been shattered. When it's off, you can't see it but turn it on & looks shattered with different colors.


Hi,
You will just have to search for a new screen. They are not that difficult to change out. The people that said under warranty send it back. Well unless you purchased accident insurance on it, a cracked lcd is not covered. LCD just doesn’t crack from sitting and they will not cover them in most cases. It is considered miss-use or abuse. Replace the screen. If you are past your warranty, check eBay. Sometimes you can get a used screen for cheap. If you do that try to get it in the whole lid assembly, they are easier to replace that way. Check out the website for screens: http://www.screentekinc.com/

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Acer aspire 3620 lid broke and screen needs to be replaced


If a 'qualified' tech damaged the screen, then it is up to them to replace the screen at their cost.

You could try finding screws slightly bigger and see if they will realign and stop it from being floppy.

Personally I would go back to the tech and complain untill they repair it properly.

Hope this helps a little.

Shattered LCD screen on Dell laptop


yes you can replace the screen yourself but it can be quite difficult, you have to remove the panel accross the top of the keyboard, remove the keyboard and unplugg the monitor plug and wireless ariel wires locate the screws that holds the lid to the base and unscrew, remove lid.
Now you have to unscrew the bezel (front plastic cover) the screws are located under the rubber screw covers, take care when splitting the bezel from the lid, (use a small flat head screwdriver if you have to), this will exspose the screen itself, disconnect the power plug, behind the screen you will find a ribbon cable remove this cable with great care................ job done! now you can replace the screen and put it all back together
If you think that this could be difficult for you, them i suggest a repair engineer to do the job for you but it will cost

How do I swap screens in Gateway 9300 Solo computer?


Before opening the laptops try easy things like swapping the memory. Also remove all cards underneath the panels you can get to (wifi. modem, etc) The machine will boot with just RAM inside it. This includes swapping batteries wich can cause failure. If you tried swapping basic parts. Video card and screens are the next step.

Replace the video card and the screen in the machine that  runs:
First, you want to get the two apart, the screen can be removed by locating the covers inside the lid where the screen is. Usually rubber feet or disc shaped plastic that matches bezel texture. slowly remove screws, also the hinges must be removed. The covers for the hinges usually pop off or are held be a screw in the rear of the laptop. The ribbon cable follows all the way down to the motherboard through one of the hinges, there is a way to guid it out of the hinge area. If you get lucky the screen cable connects to a 
removable mini card which is your video card. The one with the 
white screen may have a bad video card.
