In the following guide I show how to remove and replace the LCD screen on a HP G42 or Compaq Presario CQ42 laptop.
In this particular case I’m removing screen from a HP G42-303DX model.
In order to replace the LCD screen it’s necessary to separate the display panel from the base assembly first. Otherwise you will not be able to remove the bezel. Check out my first HP G42 and Compaq Presario CQ42 disassembly guide for the display panel removal instructions (steps 1-27).
OK, let’s assume the display pane has been removed and now we can start taking it apart.
