Replacing the Display Assembly

Insert the left and right hinge posts into the holes at the top of the palm rest.

2. Carefully connect the LCD flex cable to the connector on the system board.

3. Place the LCD flex-cable hold-down clip over the LCD flex-cable connector.

The word up is stamped on the top of the clip.

The tab at the left of the clip should go under the palm rest, and the screw hole on the right side of the clip should line up with the holes in the connector ground strip and the threaded hole in the system board.

4. Reinstall the M2 x 9.5-mm screw that secures the LCD flex-cable hold-down clip to the system board.

5. Close the display.

You may have to press down on the back end of the display (above the hinges) while closing the display to get the display to close completely.

6. Reinstall the two M2 x 4-mm screws that secure the display assembly to the bottom case.

You may have to squeeze the display assembly and the bottom case assembly together, so the screw holes align in the base assembly and the hinge posts.

Do not completely tighten the screws.

7. Reinstall the two M2 x 5-mm screws in the back of the computer that secure the display assembly to the back of the bottom case.

8. Tighten the two screws that you installed in step 6.

9. Open the display and reinstall the left and right hinge covers.

An L is stamped on the bottom of the left hinge cover and an R is stamped on the bottom of the right hinge cover.
