Place the computer on its back, facing up.

Wedge the plastic opening tool in between the screen and the bezel of the aluminum computer casing.

Move the tool along the entire edge of the screen with an up-and-down prying motion to loosen the screen from the casing. Do not lift the entire screen away from the computer yet.

The screen is held in place by plastic tabs. These will create a popping sound when loosened.

The screen assembly will flex as it is pried off. Do not bend the screen too far or the glass screen could shatter.
