Changing a laptop screen can be surprisingly easy. Here is what to do.

1. Find your laptop’s screen type and buy a new one that you’re sure will fit. It must be the same size to fit properly. Check with your laptop’s manufacturer to see if they sell laptops screens.

2. Unplug the charger and remove the battery.

3. Remove the screw covers and unscrew all of the screws on the screen side of the laptop.

4. Once all the screws have been removed, gently remove the screen from the bezel. Once the screen has been successfully detached, pull it out with a little more force. If you cannot pull the screen out, ensure that you have removed all of the screws.
