Here I explain how to replace damaged screen in an Acer Aspire 5745G laptop. This guide should work for the entire Acer Aspire 5745 series.
In my example I’ll be replacing the damaged screen in a display panel which is separated from the laptop.
I removed the display panel in the previous disassembly guide.
But it’s not necessary to remove the display panel. You should be able to replace the screen while the display panel still attached to the laptop. It will be a little bit harder to remove the bezel but possible.
Let’s replace it.
You’ll find two screw covers in the lower left and right corners of the display panel.
Remove both covers with a sharp object.
After that remove both screws securing the bezel.
Start separating the bezel from the display cover on the top.
Wiggle the bezel until it’s separated from the cover. There are many hidden plastic latches holding the bezel attached to the cover.
Continue separating the bezel from the cover.
NOTE: most likely the bezel will be glued to bottom part of the screen with double sticky tape.
Work slowly. Carefully unglue the bezel.
Remove the bezel.
Remove four screws securing the LCD to the display cover.
Separate the LCD from the cover so you can access the video cable connector on the back.
The video cable can be accessed now.
Remove any tape securing the video cable connector and unplug the cable.
Now you can remove the damaged screen and replace it with a new one.
You can search for a new LCD using the model number from the original part.
The model printed on the back of the screen. In my case the LCD model number is: LP156WH3 (TL)(A2).
