Introduction

When considering a screen replacement it is important to ensure that it is not a connection issue first. Once you determine that you have a tight fitting connection, if the display issues persist then you will need to replace the screen. Fortunately, this is a straight forward process with no special requirements or hazards.

    • At this point, the white caps that hide the top-most screws marked with red circles have been removed.

    • Using the Phillips #1 screwdriver, remove the (10) ten screws from the bottom of the device.

    • After removing the white caps covering the screws, use the Phillips #1 screwdriver to remove the (3) three screws indicated with red circles.

    There are threaded nuts underneath the two screw holes located in the center of the computer (white caps cover them). When I removed the screws, the two nuts became loose and I found them in the pan after I took the battery out. I could not reattach these screws upon reassembly because there were no threads they could screw into, so I ended up with two screws and two nuts left over after completion. Are you sure it is really necessary to remove these two center screws?

This was very helpful, I broke the screen to my chromebook whilst shutting the lid and the screen cracked. I didn’t want to spend the money on a new screen so I decided to take the whole top half off the chomebook and basically make a chromebox.
