In the following guide I will show how to remove and replace failed LCD screen on HP ENVY 15 laptop.

In this particular case I will disassemble HP ENVY 15-3033cl with a glass bezel.

First of all, make sure the computer is turned off.

      @ Gerald,

      How about replacing only the front glass for hp envy m6-n012dx ?

      This will be a tough one. Is it a touchscreen model and the front glass glued to the display cover?
      I assume it has to be removed the same way as on MacBook Pro.

    Hello, can you do a tutorial on how to take apart and clean the HP ENVY 6 Notebook PC? I’m having a lot of overheating issues with it and I don’t even know where to begin with how to take it apart. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Nice, thank you! How about replacing the whole screen system? My hp screen (plus casing) got damaged and I would like not only to replace the LCD screen but everything on the display side.
