Introduction

This is one of the more complicated procedures for the lapdock replacement guides. To start you will need to remove the bottom case of the lapdock. Then you will follow by removing the lapdock battery and unplugging the connections to the motherboard as directed in the guide. After doing so, you will then remove a top case of the lapdock and unfasten the screen by removing four screws that hold the screen in place.
