If your G4 has a CD-RW or Combo drive, the pictures in the following steps will not exactly match your computer.
Before continuing, place a soft cloth on your work surface to rest the computer on. Turn the G4 over, making sure the DVD drive doesn't fall out. Place the computer on the cloth.
Open the display to a 90 degree angle. Rest the trackpad face down on the work surface and allow the display to hang over the edge. If possible, adjust your chair or work surface height so the display will rest on your legs and the trackpad will lie flat on the work surface.
Remove the four T8 Torx screws that fasten the display to the trackpad. The screw closest to the display data cable has a tapered head.
