Removing and replacing the LCD screen on an Acer Aspire E 15 (E5-574G-54Y2) laptop is a relatively easy procedure.

All disassembly steps should be the same or very similar for all other models in the Acer Aspire E 15 family.

The screen is mounted under the display bezel which is attached to the display back cover. It’s easier to remove the bezel if you start from the side.


Insert your fingers between the bezel and the screen. Wiggle the bezel to unfasten it from the cover.

Start separating screen bezel on the side


Continue removing the bezel on the top of the display assembly. You can use a plastic case opener to release hidden latches.

After the top side of the bezel is unfastened, move the hinge area.

Make sure the display is opened all the way back. Continue removing the bezel with our fingers on the bottom of the display.

I use a plastic stick to separate the hinge cover.

      The ribbon cable connects the display panel to the motherboard. One side of the ribbon cable shown in this guide step 9. The other side of the ribbon cable located inside the laptop base. Check out the other guide for the complete disassembly.
      Try reconnecting the ribbon cable on both ends. If it doesn’t help, try replacing the ribbon cable.

      Jose, you’ll have to purchase new antenna cables and replace them. Wi-Fi antenna cables running inside the display panel. You’ll have to remove the display and take it apart in order to replace the cables.
