I need to replace the LCD screen on my HP Pavilion dv5-1159, but I can't seem to find any sort of tutorial.



Service Manual
Go down to, and click on -
HP Pavilion dv5 Entertainment PC - Maintenance and Service Guide

Ignore if you are aware;
This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the above file name it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

The file is downloading in the background, and will not show until fully downloaded.

Adobe Reader page number box is at the Top, to the right of the Down Arrow.
When I refer to a page it is for this page number box.

Go to Pages 27 through 29.
See what you are dealing with.

Now go to Page 76 - Display Assembly

Two synthetic rubber, or plastic; Screw Covers at the Bottom of the Display Bezel.
One on either side of the Hinge Cover.

I use a computer pick, and lift them off. Start at the base where the Screw Cover meets the Display Bezel.
The Screw Covers are held in place by a type of rubber cement.

When removed, I LIGHTLY stick them to the Display Bezel for safekeeping.
If you use care you should be able to reuse them.
Doesn't stick anymore? Apply a TINY dab of rubber cement with a toothpick.

(Yes. They like to stick to the tool, your fingers, and passing jets(?)

Remove the two Philips head screws.
No.1 Philips screwdriver, or equivalent Jewelers screwdriver.

Put your mouse cursor in the middle of the photo, and use the
Zoom In feature. See the screw hole on either side of the Hinge Cover, at the Bottom?

The bezel is mad of space-age plastic. Pretty tough stuff.
If course, there are those of us who can destroy a steel ball bearing in a sandbox, with a rubber mallet.

Use care when removing.

The Display Bezel Flexes.
It is flexed to remove.
The exterior perimeter, of the inside edges of the Display Bezel has TABS.
These snap into matching LATCHES on the Display Cover.
(Top cover when laptop is closed)

Since you are going to replace the LCD screen, I won't advise to protect it.
Use your fingertips, and come to the INSIDE edge of the Right side, of the bezel.
Somewhere close to the middle/right.

Ease the inside edge of the bezel up, until you can slide a fingertip under.
Can't get in? Move over. You are at a Tab/Latch.
Hold that spot with one hand. Use the fingertips of the other hand on the bezel. Come over a little bit, and ease under the bezel.

The Tabs/Latches should start popping loose.
Snap! Snap! Sounds like you're breaking something.
Work down along the Right side, head towards the Top, then Left side.

Step 1 shows the rectangular shaped Screw Covers.
(Right above where it states Step 2)

See the above? This = OH H3LL NO!
Using a metal tool = DU-MB

See this video?
Yes. The difference between being a tech, and a squirrel with a tree branch in your hand.
Don't know who he is, but follow his guide.

Just in case you need it in the future,

If this solution helps put some VERY baseball cards in a jar, bury them by the old Oak tree in the back. Some old white haired biker will be by to get 'em.

(NO.............not Really! Geez!)

Replace motherboard on a dv5 1159se laptop

Laptops provide great convenience because of their small and portability, but those features can become a real pain when you have a part that needs to be replaced. If the motherboard goes out on your HP Pavilion laptop, you can replace it on your own at home, but the cramped quarters and small parts can make it a very challenging endeavor. Power off your Pavilion laptop and remove the power cable. Flip the laptop over and press down on the raised knob on the battery cover. Push the knob away from you and then use your other hand to pull out the battery. Set the battery aside and turn the laptop back over. Open the lid so that the screen is up and facing towards you. Slide the screwdriver in-between the two edges of the large plastic bezel piece above the keyboard on the bottom half of the laptop. Pry the plastic bezel upward. Remove the cable connected from the plastic piece to the motherboard and set the piece aside. Remove the screws holding the hinges in place that connect to the top half of the laptop. Pull the hinges out. Remove the screws that are holding the keyboard and then pull the keyboard off. Pull out all of the cables that are connected to the other components such as the USB port, the hard drive and the wireless card (if your Pavilion has one). Remove all of the remaining screws that are holding the motherboard into place. Carefully pull the motherboard out. Place the new motherboard into the laptop case and re-attach all of the screws. Connect all of the cables back into place and then re-attach the keyboard, hinges and plastic bezel. Pop the battery back in and turn the laptop on. Hope this helps.

There should be little tabs around the bezel of the display. Under those tabs are screws. Don't forget what screws go where for when you get ready to put it all back together.

Children destroyed screen on new HP Pav dv6 -1245dx. How hard to re[lace screen?

They are fairly easy to replace. There should be 6 rubber screw caps/bumpers around the bezel of the lcd. Remove the covers and the phillips screws underneith. Gently remove the front bezel. Take your time doing this, because they use some adhesive strips around the sides as well as some clips. If your not careful, you will crack the bezel. Once removed there should be about 3 screws on either side of the lcd holding it to the hinges. Remove these screws. Unplug the backlight from the inverter board at the bottom of the lcd and the main flex cable from the back of the unit. Installation is the reversal of disassembly. A new LCD can be purchased on ebay for around $110-150.

Hp pavillion dv6-1030us just order my new screen how do i take the front and back bezel off looking for a video link not finding all the screws on front thanks

The procedure to replace the display is outlined in the maintenance and service guide.

Refer to the Display Assembly beginning on page 81 for the "complete" disassembly instructions.

The maintenance guide gives you step by step procedures to remove the monitor and most importantly... how to remove the bezel "properly".

Chaning the DV7 screen

Once you remove the screw covers and screws from the front lcd bezel you will need to pry the bezel off the rest of the way. Use a nylon pry bar, or small screwdriver to get behind it. The lcd is cracked already and useless to you, so your best to pry off that from the inside. The top will come off relatively easy, but it may be a little tougher at the bottom near the palmrest.
