We will be replacing the screen on this HP Chromebook. ***Unfortunately I did get a shot of the sweet crack on this screen. We will start by removing this screws on the bottom left and right of the screen, just above the escape key and power button.

Next will start to remove the front "bezel" with a simple spudger. It is best to start from the bottom (now we here) of the screen.   *couldn't resist The bottom will have adhesive/double sided tape that may or may not give you trouble. It is not enough to prevent you from removing the screen, just be aware as it is near the screen circuit board.

I found a really annoying super sticky black/silverfoil tape that was attached to the bezel and the actual panel, It was quite a bother to remove the bezel because of this. Please consider that this can happen when you try to wedge it off. (the reason it possibly isn't budging can be this tape)

Broken doesn't stand a chance.
Once removed, we can proceed to remove (4) screws that hold the screen to the laptop case. Marked in blue are the locations for the screws. Screws are closest to screen and on a light silver bracket. Pull screen forward and lay down on keyboard.

The ribbon cable is connected at the bottom of the screen. Tape is placed over the connection and it is easily peeled and easy to reuse. I would not advise cutting the tape. Connect your new screen and go backwards through the steps to install. Connect your new screen and go backwards through the steps to install.

When re-installed and laptop is closed, check the back hinge area as it does not easily snap back in together. Pat yourself on the back if you can get it all together perfectly!

Great walkthrough but missed one of the screws in the first step. There's one on the right and left. Nothing a little superglue couldn't fix.

That ribbon connector sure is finicky, It's really hard to actually pop it back in without putting too much force to it and bending it up. (for me atleast)
