Laptops, smartphones and tablets are the gadgets that scare people when something wrong happens to them. People do not want to touch these electronics items because they are afraid of worsening the problem or causing some physical damage to their devices. However, you can rest assured that laptops are not the sensitive breed of electronics like tablets and smartphones. Laptops are just like desktop computers wherein after removing some screws you can perform almost any task yourself. When there is something wrong with your laptop screen, it is time for you to go into the DIY mode and save some money.
You would replace your laptop screen more specifically to save money. In most cases, you will be paying either double or more than double the amount of money of the actual cost that will be spent on your laptop’s screen replacement. You might also want to know that laptop screen is not something rare anymore. There are several online websites from where you can get as many laptop screens as you want. Better yet, you could even go for laptop screen wholesale and start your own business to earn some money by keeping your costs a bit lower than other repair shops.
Another reason why it is best to replace your laptop screen on your own is because you can. Most people are under the wrong impression that they can’t do it because it is a very sensitive task and they will do something wrong to their machine while replacing the screen. If you are one of these people, you might want to look for hundreds of online videos and tutorials that can teach you how to replace your laptop screen. All you need to perform your screen replacement is a screwdriver with several small bits.
What people who have never seen an exposed LCD on a laptop don’t know is that your LCD panel is simply connected to the motherboard through a cable. All the hard work that needs to be done is on removing the bezel and the small pieces of plastic or metal components that are holding the LCD in its place. The first step you have to take is removing the bezel using a small screwdriver. The bezel is holding the screen and you will find the screws holding the bezel in place beneath the small rubber cushions on sides of the bezel.
After removing the bezel you simply unscrew the screen because it is connected to the cover with brackets that also have screws. After removing these screws you simply remove the cable that is connecting your LCD with the motherboard and you are done. It is always best that you have already removed the broken and damaged LCD before you order a new laptop screen. You can easily afford a good screen in under $100 whereas the technicians at the shops will take around $200 or more for doing the same job. Lastly, don’t try the same procedures on tablets and other special laptops.
