    • After you've removed the back cover, you will see a copper colored ribbon connected to a grey hinge.

    • Carefully remove the hinge from the cord using a spudger and the ribbon will come out.

    • The regular black nylon spudger should be used whenever possible, especially around sensitive internal components.

    • Make sure to wear an anti-static wrist strap when handling the motherboard.

    • Once the screws have been taken out, use a spudger to carefully remove the cover. With this cover removed, the screen is now completely exposed.

    Any ideas on where to purchase a replacement screen in the US? Thanks!
