Broken screen

To begin your fix, you'll need a few simple tools and a replacement LCD screen. For tools, I recommend a screwdriver with a variety of small bits, such as a Phillips #00 and a Torx T5. It's also a good idea to have a few thin metal blades or plastic spudgers. These are really handy for removing the trim that surrounds the screen.

As for the replacement LCD, you should be able to buy one either from the laptop manufacturer's authorized parts dealer or a third-party supplier. Depending the screen, they usually cost between $50 and $250 dollars-more if it's a high-end display or you buy an OEM replacement. Regardless, you'll want to buy a new screen that matches your broken one exactly. The only sure way to do this is to remove the broken one.

After disconnecting the power supply and removing the battery, carefully examine the bezel around the screen. You'll need to remove this bezel to access the screws that hold the LCD panel in place.

On this laptop, several rubber cushions hide screws, which hold the bezel in place. I'll need to remove these cushions and the screws that are underneath.

With the hidden screws removed, I used a thin metal blade to pop loose one of the bottom corners and worked my way around the bezel with a plastic spudger.

Broken laptop screen

There is nothing more frustrating than a broken laptop screen. Whether you have dropped your laptop or stepped on it,once the screen is cracked it has to be replaced. Having the screen repaired may cost you almost as much as a new laptop. Purchasing a new screen from the manufacturer can also be expensive. Taking the time to look online at computer message boards or resellers can help you to find a reasonably priced screen. By following a few easy steps, you can replace your cracked screen and have a functioning laptop in an afternoon.

Determine what model laptop screen will fit your laptop. Ordering a screen directly from the manufacturer can be almost as expensive as buying a new laptop. Look at online computer message boards, auction sites and retailers to find less expensive options. Disconnect any power source, including the battery pack, from your laptop before you begin. Locate and remove the four to six screws that hold the bezel, or plastic frame cover, in place. The screws sometimes have small plastic or rubber covers over them. Pull the plastic bezel away from the screen cautiously, working around the edge. Some bezels snap in and out of place. A small flat-head screwdriver may be helpful in prying the edge of the bezel away from the screen. Pull the screen forward gently. You will find two main wires behind it. The ribbon-like wire, or video cable, is usually taped in place. Remove the tape and disconnect the video cable from your broken screen. Remove the broken screen from its metal frame. Connect the new screen to the video cable and pop it into the metal frame. Replace the tape, plastic frame and screws. Power up your computer and test your new screen. Hope this helps.

Laptop screen replacement

If you've removed the screws that is on the plastic that is around the outter edges of the screen then use a little force with your fingers to pry the plastic bezel apart from around the screen. Normally this is snuggly snapped into place around the screen. Surely some knucklehead did not apply glue to it.

Cant remove screen seems glued on hp pavillion dv5 1007

ummm, i'd doubt that it is glued unless you had the screen repair previously by a shoddy repair shop. First of all normally the screens are held in place by screws that are hidden by little rubber bumper covers or some type of covering on the plastic that is around the screen. Use a safety pin or small flat head screwdriver to remove the covers and expose the screws. Then use a phillips head screw driver to remove the screws. Once all the screws are removed use your fingers to slide along the inside of the plastic around the screen and pry it loose from the screen.

Screen fracture

Yes this absolutely can be repaired, the bad news is unless you can find somebody to do the work cheap, (check craigslist for your area to see about less expensive private repair), the repair can and usually does cost as much as a new laptop. If the laptop is a newer top of the line unit, it is worth having repaired. If older or a cheaper model, consider replacement

Laptop screen has been invaded by green and red/purple germlins

Sorry to tell you but you are describing exactly what an LCD looks like when it has been fractured. Does it work with an external monitor? If so you will need to have it repaired. Call the Fujitsu support number (800)-fuj-itsu and they can tell you where a repair center is in your area. The call is free. Have your serial number handy.

Charging System does not work and Lines on LCD

I have a dell 9300 that had vertical lines.
I wrote to Dell and said my wife, my sister, my daughter and myself had trouble with the laptop screens. They did not reply but sent me a box with return mailing instructions. Without a word either way, my laptop was fixed. There is no question in my mind there are shorting problems under the case. On three of my dell laptops I need to use a cord to plug in. THE BATTERIES have some sort of connection problem. If I touch the bottom part of the case(while entering data, it oftentimes moves the mouse or the mouse starts dancing. I have to work without the battery. I read where some fellow opened the case gently and inserted a hard piece of thin clear plastic to separate the case somewhat from the guts, so to speak. That may be some help. All of my laptops are kept open now while I can. It seems the back where the lid goes down is fragile. On two of my laptops, the usb ports moves about like a broken arm.The internal architecture is great on a dell. They might use tin cans to make the outside. I wish they would use a solid plastic.

If you can try a docking station that might help. I do not think you can do anything else other than see if there is an open line from where your batter plugs in up to the motherboard.

The connection where you plug in the power on my compact presario R3000 laptop is broken. The female part that you plug into is loose and probably broken away from the solder on the mother board it self. I...

Before you pull apart your laptop, check the male connector and power cord of the adapter, check it with a multimeter and or plug it into another Compaq. You could have a broken wire in the power cord, it could save you a lot of work.

To pull apart the laptop, remove the battery, hard drive and CD drive first.
Then remove all the screws from the bottom of the laptop, plus the screws on the back that holds the LCD's hinge to the laptop base.
Take a note of where the screws come from, some may be shorter that others.
The remove the keyboard (the screws should already been removed from the bottom of the laptop).
Carefully remove the plastic cover next to the base of the LCD screen, This may also cover the hinges, if necessary fold the screen flat to enable you to carefully pry this cover up and off.
The plastic top cover is clip fastened to the bottom of the case, carefully prize apart from one side and gradually work around the other sides.
You can now remove the LCD, there are two connects attached to the motherboard, unclip these.
The motherboard is under the keyboard and plastic top cover, there are screws securing it to the plastic base, remove these and you should be able to free it from the base.
Now you can solder/fix the power connector.
I suggest you use a temperature controlled soldering iron.

Don't use too much force, you might crack the plastic parts.
Best of luck and have fun.
