Question about Computers & Internet
I cant find an exact how to for that model, but the majority of toshiba laptops are the same. Here is a site for toshiba disassembly links http://www.irisvista.com/tech/
The majority of the toshiba laptops reqire you to take the plastic bezel off the top of the keyboard before you can remove the screen, i know that from replacing screens personally. After taking the bezel off you can remove the hinge screw which hold the laptop screen in place once thats removed you can remove the front plastic bezel of the screen, you will need to remove the rubber covers over the screw holes. They will pull off using a nail once you get under them enough, if the glue gets left behind on the screw head just peel it off and stick to the bottom of the rubber cover you removed and put them somewhere safe . Once all the covers are removed you can actually take the screws out. Once all screws are removed use a thin plastic to GENTLY prise the plastic away from the bottom(AKA top) of the screen. do this all the way round till you can lift the screen plastic away. Now remove the webcam cable if your laptop has one then any screws that appear to me holding the screen in. then prise the screen up gently, there is a video cable attached to the back of the screen, so go gently as you dont want to break it. The cable is taped along its length to the back of the screen, this can be easily pulled away from it , do it until you reach the connector, the connector is held on with tape so you will need to pull that off to, try not to tear it and you can use it again on the new screen. once the tap is removed gently pull the connector down so it disconnects from the screen and lift the screen away. Now you have the screen out there is a metal frame on either side and maybe the top and bottom ,attached to the edges of the screen ,these need to be removed and attached to the new screen so it fits snugly. They are held in by small crosshead screws simply take the screws out one side at a time and place them on the new screen attach the cables and while you still have it apart test the screen to see if it works. If it does then reassemble the screen.
It might seem daunting at first but as long as you take your time and maybe take some pics of the screen before diassembling , for refrence you should be ok.
Good luck and if you found this info useful please vote for me
