I wish I could have got the photos to go along with the steps, but using the link shared by mayer, follow steps 1 & 2, skip 3. Follow 4, 5 and 6. the key is to lift out gently from the bottom, and slide the bezzle up, there are tabs that slide into the top of the case, you should only have to lift about a half inch.

Follow 7, skip 8, 9,there is 4 strips of foil tape, two on either side, peal that away carefully, you may be able to get away with just the top foil tape on either side, but I pealed off the bottom to be safe.

Follow step 10, also you will see another thick black cable that goes behind the screen, and goes down to the bottom just left of the ram slots. carefully disconnect that, it just slides out. This is the inverter power cable.

Skip step 11. 12 is similar. except there are 4 t9 screws on either side of the screen. Follow 13, although nothing remains connected at this moment, I found lifting from the bottom was easiest.

Skip 14, 15, and 16. 17 is similar, skip 18. there are no screws, but a plastic clip, push down/out slightly and it should come loose.

19,20,21 are similar.

Enjoy and I hope this helps someone.

Unfortunately, we have not made repair guides for that computer yet. It is on the 'to do' list, but we just have not gotten around to it.
