In this guide I explain how to remove and replaced damaged screen in an Asus Eee PC 1201n netbook.
There is a good chance this guide fits other Asus Eee models. If it works for you, please mention the model number in comments after the post.
Before you start make sure the laptop is turned off and battery removed.
There are six screw seals on the front bezel. These seals hiding screws securing the bezel.
You can remove seals with a sharp object.
After all seals are removed, remove all six screws.
Start separating the bezel from the display cover with your fingers.
Continue removing the bezel on the top of the display assembly.
I found that in this model hinge covers are not part of the bezel.
You’ll have to separate the hinge cover from the bezel, lift up the hinge cover and remove the bezel as it shown on the following picture.
Remove the bezel completely.
After it’s been removed, you can remove the right hinge cover.
Remove the left hinge cover.
Carefully separate the LCD from the display cover and remove two screws on the right side.
These screws securing the LCD to the mounting brackets.
Remove two more screws on the left side of the left bracket.
NOTE: the bottom screws located under a small magnet. Do not forget to put the magnet back in place when you assembled everything back together. This magnet activates the lid close switch when you close the display.
Carefully separate the LCD from the display cover and place it face down on the keyboard.
Now you can access the video cable on the back.
Disconnect the video cable.
The broken LCD has been removed and ready for replacement.
The best way to find a new replacement screen is searching by the model number.
