This guide has more to do with replacing the whole upper half of your laptop (screen, frame, camera), which is not what I want or expect. Check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RwO6Zly... for a screen replacement only guide.

If you are just replacing your screen, you do not have to take out your keyboard, trackpad, et al.
