How to Replace a Broken Laptop Screen Yourself

If you have the time and interest, you can save a lot of money by replacing your broken laptop screen yourself. By following these DIY steps, you can get your laptop screen up and running again in an hour or two. Most laptop screens are fairly easy to replace as long as you use the right tools and follow the instructions provided carefully. Before you start, make sure that the screen really needs to be replaced.

Connect your laptop to an external TV or monitor to confirm if the main problem is a broken screen or something deeper. If the laptop is sent to another screen correctly, use it for a while to ensure that the keyboard and other components of the laptop appear to work normally. Some laptops require you to press certain function keys on the laptop to activate external screen output. When you buy the LCD screen, most sellers will let you know to compare the specifications and location of the video cable on the back of the screen with the current screen.

If, after following the first steps, the process looks different for your laptop, I recommend that you search Google and YouTube or that you seek out a repair professional for more help on the exact make and model of your laptop.
