2 The battery can't be easily removed on this model. Leave it inside and be careful not to turn the machine on during the installation.
5 Note that this model comes with a transparent plastic layer covering the LCD which is part of the bezel.
7 Once you reach the bottom, open the back cover wide. With a help of a flat pick or a screw driver release the hinge covers and set the plastic cover aside.
12 Before disconnecting the video cable, remove yellow adhesive tape securing the video connector and place it on the back cover so that you won't lose it.
13 Peel up another tape covering video connector and disconnect the cable by pulling on the tape. Be very gentle with the connector, since it's very fragile. Discard the old screen.
15 Reconnect the video cable. Make sure it's fully plugged in but remember that it's very fragile. Secure the connector with its tape and reapply the yellow adhesive tape on top.
16 Bring the LCD up back to it's original position. Make sure the frame rails are overlying on top of the LCD and remove the protective film.
18 It is the best time to test the newly installed LCD. Connect the power adapter and press the start button. Once the boot up graphics appear - the screen is installed correctly.
Turn off the laptop and disconnect the power.
20 Insert the hinge covers first then snap the bezel back in going around the perimeter.
The plastic tabs make a distinct click when snapped in properly.
