You can find the tool on ebay or various gaming sites. www.gamersection.ca is an example, but there are more. It's called a triwing (tri-wing) screwdriver.
Here, someone has posted how to disassemble it:

If you want to buy a Nintendo screwdriver and work patiently, this is an easy fix.
One of your ribbon cables is being pulled out or is not connecting when you open your DS.
If you go to www.powergamingparts.com you can find manuals to assist you in opening the DS and where to locate the "clips" that you will need to tighten.
If you need any further assistance contact me.

DS Screen


If the nintendo has dropped most probably the LCD screen will be broken. If it is broken you can replace it for around € 20.

Nintendo DS lite bottom screen replacment


Hey, you need to check the ribbons that connect the various pieces. The DS will not boot up if some part is not connected properly. Make sure you have not torn any of the ribbons either.

Bottom screen scrambled on nintendo ds lite


This option is only suitable for out of warranty devices as opening it violates the warranty.

Open the device following this info:
How to dismantle an Original Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video in youtube:
"Disassembling Nintendo DS Lite"

The bottom screens have 2 wrap wires, one big and visible, that is the screen cable, the other is small and not so obvious and this one is for the touch screen and you dont want to get it broken.

The cable connectors release the cable by lifting ot pulling the brown or black lock and be sure to remember how it was connected so you can know the right position of the cable when connected right not having any problem with loosen cables before you finish.

Good Luck...

Conection?


Here is a guide to dismantle an original Nintendo2.gif DS:

How to dismantle a Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video2.gif in youtube: "Disassembling Nintendo DS2.gif Lite"

And after opening it you can do your work. Make sure the flexible cables connecting the top screen part of your DS are well in place and not broken. Your problem may be only a loosen cable but in case the cable is broken you gonna need a replacement. Be careful not to damage the screen or other sensitive electronic parts on your device and you will be on your way.

Good Luck...

Bottom screen


Sounds like the screen is broken. It may be fixable, but you're likely better off buying a new DS.

Ds not lite


Replace the connector cord between two screens. You can buy new ones from DX Deal extreme! Carefully remove through hinge and attach securely.

Be careful not to break the fine wires connecting. Have to twist the connector cord in the correct way to make it go through hinge without damaging.

Good luck cos it is a fiddly job.
