This guide would be used if your screen gets damaged or no longer functions. All screws are a PH00 size. It would be advisable to keep track of which screws go where, as there are a lot of screws that will be removed over the course of this guide. Be sure to wear the anti-static guard strap, as that will protect the circuitry from permanent damage from static electricity.
