In this guide I’ll be replacing screen on a Gateway NV57H13u laptop.
In my case it was cracked badly.
This guide might work for some other Gateway models.
Turn off the computer and remove the battery before you start taking it apart.
The screen bezel secured to the display cover by two screws located on the bottom of the bezel.
Both screws hidden under screw seals.
Remove both seals with a sharp tool.
Remove both screws.
Start separating the bezel from the display cover. It’s not very easy because there are many hidden latches securing the bezel.
Insert your fingers under the bezel. At the same time insert a piece of soft plastic (you can use a guitar pick) and move it slowly along the side of the display.
Wiggle the bezel to disengage hidden latches.
Continue separating the bezel on the top of the display.
When the top side separated form the display, move to the bottom side.
In order to separate the bezel in the hinge area, lift it up with a small screwdriver.
The bezel has been removed.
Remove three screws securing the screen on the right side.
Remove three screws from the left side.
Unplug cable from the webcam module.
Carefully separate the LCD from the display cover and place it face down on the keyboard.
Now you can access the video cable.
Remove sticky tape securing the video cable connector.
Unplug the video cable connector.
Remove the damaged screen. Now it’s ready for the replacement.
You can search for a new replacement LCD using the model number from the original part.
In my Gateway NV57H13u the LCD screen had the following model number: B156XW02 v.6.
