    there are two screws on the very bottom behind two plastic stickers. You must pry off the stickers, one located to the left of the hinge/pivot point, and one on the right. the rest of the bezel is just snaped into place

Here is one place I found thru google that sells your lcd for your laptop:
http://base.google.com/base/a/1453857/D14569028068669548660


Price is about $89.00 before any S/H charges. I'm sure if you do some research you may find them cheaper.


When it comes to replacing the lcd on these laptops most of the time its done the same way. Unscrew the screws on the front lcd bezel and then remove the bezel so it will expose the lcd with a hinge on each side.

Remove the screws on the left hinge and also remove the screws on the right hinge.

At this point the screen will be loose. Disconnect the power connector from the bottom of the lcd that goes to the little rectangular inverter board.

There will also be a cable on the back of the lcd screen that needs to come out as well. Be gentle with the cable cause its sensitive.

At this point you can remove the bad lcd and then get ready to put the new lcd into place.

Go ahead and connect the lcd cable to the back of the lcd, don't worry it is slotted so it can only go in one way and it will kind of snap into place. Then go ahead and align the screen with the left and right hinges so you can put the screws back on so it keeps the screen in place.

Then go ahead and connect the power connector to the rectangular inverter as well. Now that you have the screen hooked up. Turn on the laptop and if you get video then you know the screen is good, turn the laptop back off and then go ahead and put the lcd front bezel back on and put the screws back into place and you should be good to go. I know this was lengthy but hope this information helps.

No Problem, it is good that you think then act as opposed to the other way around. For you LCD, I would go to Ebay, type in "HP dv4-1120us LCD", and see what i could come up with. For your removal Instructions, i can help you there. I can walk you through it. ----------------------------------------------------------REMOVE THE BATTERY-------------------------------------------------------- You wil want to identify some parts first. Look at your laptop, and you will see it is comprised of 2 components, a lid and a base. Looking at the lid, you will see that there is a small plastic frame around the LCD. On this frame there is Generally a few rubber bits, although you will need to look closely to see them. Take a philips flathead screwdriver and remove them. Underneath you will see some small screws, carefully remove them. Then slowly prise this frame off, known as a bezel. Then the rest is easy. Put your hand in front of the LCD, and gently tip the laptop. The LCD will fall into your hand. If it doesn't try to get it out with the screwdriver. Then, carefully holding the screen, remove any connectors that hold the screen to the board. Memorize what cable goes where. Put this LCD down. Get a new one from ebay, and carefully remove it from the packaging. Then hold it like you did with the first, connect the cables where they go, push it into place, place the bezel aka the frame back on, and screw it in. If the rubber is no longer sticky, regular glue such as crazy glue, or gorrilla glue will work. Place the rubber bits back on the screen and your good to go.

Please note that incorrect or loose cable placement could cause undesired effects. If a cable needs force to go in, check that this is the right cable, you may damage the port and cable. If lines or flickering occurs, check the connecter of the screen. Pull them out, blow on them, put them back in, if the flickering resumes, i would call the manufacterer from ebay, for a warranty refund.

Good Luck

Hp g5000 sreen does not light up as usal, i can see a the start up when i shine a torch at the sreen, what do i need to do to get working.


An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. It needs an additional source of light.
A Backlight is used as the additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to the Fluorescent lighting used in homes and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

The LCD screen is a composite of layers, surrounded by a thin metal frame that resembles a picture frame.
To one side of the LCD screen layers, and under the frame is usually where the Backlight is mounted.
[Note* Two Backlights are used in some models]

Replacing a Backlight is more labor intensive than replacing an Inverter.
Due to this, and the cost, the LCD screen itself is replaced as a unit most of the time, when it comes to Backlight replacement.

Example of a replacement LCD screen for the HP G5000 series of Notebook PC's,

https://www.screentekinc.com/HP_G5000_Series--15.4-inch--1280x800-wxga-laptop-lcd-screen.shtml

[Note* Stating HP G5000 is just stating the model series. When buying replacement parts the EXACT Model Number should be used. This information is located on the bottom of the laptop, in a white Service Tag.

When replacing an LCD screen, the model number of the replacement LCD screen should be matched to the existing LCD screen's Model Number.
Inverters and LCD screens are matched together. Make sure you get the correct part]

An Inverter is used to provide power from the laptop to the LCD screen, and to the Backlight.

Note* 90 Percent of the time the problem is a bad Inverter.

Example of an Inverter for an HP G5000 series notebook PC,

http://www.zlectronic.com/product/INVERTER-FOR-HP-DAC-07B035-DAC-09B017-DV5000-G5000.html

The LCD screen, Top Cover, Display Bezel, Inverter, Backlight, and various screws, make up the Display Assembly.
The Display Bezel made of plastic surrounding the LCD screen, and in front of the LCD screen is removable.
Behind it is easy access to the Inverter.

The Inverter is approximately 4 inches long, and the width of a No.1 pencil.
Usually located at the bottom of the LCD screen, and right behind the Bezel.

This article shows replacing an Inverter and LCD screen on a Compaq Presario v2000 series Notebook PC,

This pictorial guide is not for the HP G5000 series Notebook PC, but the models are very similar when it comes to Inverter replacement.

My HP G60 lap top has a blank screen, when I plug it into an external screen, it works fine. Help me guys.


This might be a sign of a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp.

I have virtical lines on lap top


Once you start to get vertical lines on your LCD screen, it's usually time for a new screen. I would check first by running an external monitor just to be sure it's not the video card.

Try replacing the inverter, if you plugged in a monitor and are still getting the screen then the onboard video has gone to ****.

Go there and search for the manual, input your region as North America then choose USA, opt out of the survey and download the manual in pdf form.

Please help me agian


So, if your motherboard is turning on and the fan comes on than for now you can check to see if your back light turns on for your lcd panel by going to a dark place and turn ont he laptop there. Than check if you see a faint light that stays on or a flicker. If you see a faint light or the display is dim than it is the inverter on the lcd panel otherwise you may need to replace the video card which can be integrated onto the motherboard and may require a new motherboard. All depends on the model you have.

Several things you need to check before replacing actual parts.
First, check the connection to the inverter for the lcd. Sometimes the connection can become loose causing a blank lcd but the motherboard is working fine. Next would be to actually replace the inverter if only the lcd does not power on at all. Even if lcd is blank you can see that the lcd is on but no picture in which case your video card could have failed and in many cases requires changing the motherboard because video is integrated into the board. Good luck.

Lap top wont boot up past the windows screen


This generally indicates that a sector in the hard drive has failed, and the hard drive will need to be replaced. With a bad sector the drive reads to the point of the bad sector and past the bad sector, but can't put the info together, so it tries to boot, but can't. Unfortunately, your only option is replacing the hard drive.
