Introduction

The battery needs to be removed before servicing or removing any other component. The screen is held on by several screws which are hidden underneath small rubber pads. Once the screws are removed, the screen bezel needs to be popped off carefully. Once the bezel is removed, a cable on the back of the screen needs to be disconnected to completely remove the screen.
