How to repair screen in laptop

I’ve replaced LCD panel in ASUS M3000Np laptop. It wasn’t too hard. Here is the “how to” report:

Looks ugly, I can't even read half of text.

Well, lets try to fix this using the screen panel from another, non working notebook.

Disassembling of the notebook’s case is a some kind of quest 🙂

Open ASUS M3 laptop case. Use screwdriver near Esc key to lift up the top panel.
Power button panel removed

We need to remove a plastic frame around the screen:

Remove screw hole covers using some needle or other tool

Screen frame is easy to remove now, but be careful! Use screwdriver or guitar pick to release all latches.

We’ve got access to LCD panel. Remove 4 corner screws and take out the old screen.

Take another screen panel and compare to the old one. They should absolutely match each other.

After plugging the new screen panel, before the assemble, turn the laptop on to verify is everything working fine.

Everything looks fine, so continue to assemble the laptop.

Put back the screen frame and the power button panel. Repairing is complete.
