Replace lcd on gateway NV57h77u


I disagree. The procedure is so easy no Service Manual is needed

1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter, and Battery.

2) Open the laptop.

The plastic frame in front of the LCD screen is the Display Bezel.
(Gateway? Believe they call it the LCD Panel Bezel)

Down in the BOTTOM corners, next to the Hinges, are screws to be removed. One in each bottom corner.

There are Screw Covers over these screws. The Screw Covers need to be removed.
Little round covers I believe to be made of plastic.
(Some models they are made of synthetic rubber)

I use a computer pick to Gently remove them.
Some use the tip of an X-Acto knife. I do not recommend this as there is a possibility of injury.
Perhaps a large darning needle. (Needle you sew with, but is Large in size)

Pick up at one edge of Screw Cover. Screw Covers are held on by a type of rubber cement.
I LIGHTLY stick them to the Display Bezel for safekeeping.

(Yes. They like to stick to the tool, your fingers, and it seems passing jets in the sky.
If you are careful with them, you should be able to reuse them.
If they do not stick anymore, use a toothpick, and apply a TINY dab of rubber cement to them/it )

Once the Screw Covers are removed use a No.1 Philips screwdriver, or equivalent Jewelers screwdriver; to remove the 2 screws.

The Display Bezel has TABS going around the exterior perimeter, of it's inside edges.
These Tabs snap into matching LATCHES on the Display Cover.

You can come from the Outside edge, where the Display Bezel meets the Display Cover, and use a thick guitar pick.

The guitar pick is wedged into the parting line, of where the Display Bezel meets the Display Cover.

Once a 'crack' is formed in-between the two, then the fingertips are used to gently start popping the bezel from the cover.

You slowly go along with your fingertips, and work along the top, then sides. By the time you have both sides almost loose, the Display Bezel usually pops off.

I like the flex method.
Come to the inside edge of the Display Bezel.
Where it meets the LCD screen. I suggest start on the Right side/Middle.

Use a fingertip, and lift up the inside edge of the Display Bezel up a little. Can't lift up at that spot? Move over. You are at a Tab/Latch.

With this spot lifted up a little, use the fingertip of the other hand, and slide under next to it.
Now use your fingertips as wedges, and pop the Display Bezel loose a little at a time.

I start at the Right side/Middle as stated. Left hand fingertips go DOWN the right side, Right hand fingertips go UP the right side.
Then I go across the Top, and down the Left side.

MOST of the time, as stated; the Display Bezel usually pops off when right side, and left side are most of the way popped loose.
NOT always though!

Sometimes you have to pop EACH and EVERY Tab/Latch loose.

Also; watch around the Hinge area/s.
Display Bezel can get hung up around them.
Go slow, and gently work the Display Bezel off, around the Hinge areas.

Display Bezel popped off, sit back; relax. You just did the hard part.
Wasn't so tough, huh?

This is what the Display Bezel looks like removed,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Gateway-NV57H15U-LCD-Front-Bezel-15-6-AP0HJ00021-/171020787909?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27d1a220c5

The MAIN view shown is a BACK view.
In the smaller views underneath, the 4th view from the Left, shows the FRONT view.

If you SET your mouse cursor in the middle of the Main view photo, the Zoom In feature is enabled.
You can CLICK on any of the smaller views, to make them appear as a Main view.

You can also see that the Hinge Covers, are an integral part of the Display Bezel. Shows you that when removing the Display Bezel, these Hinge Covers may need to be worked off of the Hinges.

Of course, may not; as I have previously stated.

The LCD screen is an Assembly. It is composed of layers.
These layers are kept in the factory set alignment, by a metal Screen Frame.
The Screen Frame resembles a picture frame.

There are THREE screws on each side of the Screen Frame.
These screws (Philips) go through metal Brackets, and hold the LCD screen/Screen Frame; to the Display Cover.

The Brackets are an integral part of the Hinges,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Gateway-NV55-NV57-LCD-Left-Hinge-Rail-Bracket-AM0HJ000100-/400334888754?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5d35d19f32

On EACH side, there is 1 screw towards the Top, 1 screw towards the Bottom/Middle, and 1 screw towards the Bottom.

Remove all 6 screws.

At the Top is the Webcam Cable. Unplug it from the Webcam Module.
(Cable pulls to LEFT side, facing laptop)

The TOP of the LCD screen is now tilted forward.
The Video Cable plugs into the Bottom side.

There should be a piece of clear Mylar tape, holding the Video Cable connector in place. Carefully peel it back, unplug the Video Cable from the LCD screen.

Remove the LCD screen.

Reverse steps to install new LCD screen.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

The border around my screen has cracked in both lower corners. This is not the actual screen itself, but the metal shiny one around my 2008 MacBook Pro 15 inch. I was wondering how I, myself, could...


Depending on how far the crack goes, you may need just to replace the screen bezel, not a hard job. These go for ludicrous money 2nd hand and I enclose an example I found that would fit your laptop
(fix ya please note, I'm not promoting ebay)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MACBOOK-PRO-15-A1150-SCREEN-DISPLAY-BEZEL-SURROUND-/220816629778?pt=UK_Computing_Apple_Mac_Accessories&hash=item3369b26012

An alternative would be to fill the gap with some epoxy putty (would spoil the look of the Mac but would at least help keep the bezel 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.

Unable to remove Gateway m680 Laptop LCD Bezel


I would try just using a little bit more force (not too much!) the bezel will have clips around it to keep it in place along with the screws under the rubber protectors. Also make sure that the bezel doesn't hook in to the hinge cover in any way, as this will prevent it from coming off properly. If it does then pop the hinge covers off before continuing.

Replacing Laptop LCD Screen


you'll need to remove the screws holding the screen bezel (the plastic around screen) on...they'll probably be under little circular plastic or rubber covers....gently pry these out as they'll go back in place when you reverse the procedure....should be four of them....Gently pry the bezel away from the main screen housing ...once thats done....you'll need to unscrew the screws holding the screen onto the hinge plates...(again should be 4 of these)...screen should now be free
NB be careful when screwing in the new screen to the hinge plates as overtightening can sometimes crack the screen

On Off Switch for Gateway 7322


under the computer there are many screws. but the two under the screen area (on the bottom of the laptop) that are on the inside (not the outside edge) of the laptop hold down the bezel with the power button. once these are out, slip a screwdriver or butterknife under the bezel from the gap between the keyboard/bezel. gently pry up and it will pop out. MAKE SURE the screen is lying flat because the parts of the bezel that cover the screen hinges go behind that area.

Hinge on Notebook


The Geeks can probably fix it for your left arm. Try a small computer shop in your area, they will be much more reasonable. You can check this site for local shops. You can also fix this yourself, it's not too terribly hard. Below are a couple of links that have breakdown diagrams, you might find one for your machine there. Check Ebay for a replacement hinge.
