    • At this point, the face is held on with little clips and adhesive. Go around the edge of the laptop screen gently prying the clips open.

    • The adhesive is on the inner edge. Since I didn’t care about the current screen, I also gripped the inner edge of the face, and pushed against the screen a little.

    • Each lower corner of the screen has two PH0 screws. Remove them.

    • Note that the two holes with screws have little triangle marks. This will make your reassembly easier when you try to remember which two holes to use.

    • Lift the screen 45º of the laptop. The back should now be disconnected from the main frame of the display, and should be able to be pulled up to 90º.

    • On the back of the display, 4” (10cm) from the left side is a small data cable, unplug it.

    • There is a piece of clear tape over the connector, and a barcode with a clear backing. Carefully remove this.

    • Remove the three PH0 screws from each side of the LCD assembly.

    • At this point, the LCD is removed, and the new one can be attached.

    • From this point forward in the instructions, you will need to pretty much work backwards.

    • I made notes to make it a bit easier.

    • Remember the little triangle markers when attaching the frame to the back.

    • Apply new adhesive to the back of the LCD face (otherwise there will be a little rattle).

      • I used standard double-sided tape.

      • I folded it lengthwise to thicken it, and trimmed with a razor.

    • If you look closely, you will see light markings where the tape should be applied.

    • (sorry about this last photo,iFixit makes the crop 4:3, which cuts off the image... Ill try to replace next time I replace one.)

    • To put the face back on, open the screen up all the way up.

    • Place the face gently in place, use the light and knobs on the top to reference the placing.

    • Start at the hp logo, and push down firmly, and slide out the the edges.

    • Do each side separately, starting at the bottom, and working up.

Good guide, I used it to replace an LCD on a HP EliteBook 8540p.

The only difference between those two models for replaceling the screen is that there are 6 rubber pads need to be removed (and thus 6 screws under the pads) (the two rubber pads at the top center you need to remove to).
