In the following guide I will be removing the LCD screen, inverter board and display hinges from a Compaq Presario F700 laptop. The display disassembly steps will be very similar for Compaq Presario F500, HP G6000 and some other HP/Compaq laptops. If this guide works for you, please mention your laptop model in the comments below.
If you want to replace the LCD screen or inverter board, it’s not necessary to remove the whole display panel as it shown on the picture above. You can do that while the display panel is still attached to the laptop base.
If you want to replace display hinges, you’ll have to remove the display panel first.
You can find the display panel removal instruction in my previous disassembly guide for a Comapq Presario F700 notebook. Follow steps 6-12 to remove the display panel assembly.
