Dell Studio 1555 Screen Replacement

Replacing a Dell Studio 1555 screen 

Though the task can seem daunting at first, laptop screen replacement is surprisingly simple. Having familiarized yourself with the Dell Studio 1555 screen replacement process, you should be able to replace your broken screen yourself. Below, you'll find detailed instructions to help guide you through the replacement process. 

How to replace a Dell Studio 1555 screen 

Step one 

Before beginning your repair, unplug your machine, remove the battery and remove any, (and all,) peripheral devices (such as speakers and memory sticks.) Next, you'll need to remove the front bezel. Note: the plastics surrounding the screen on the Dell Studio 1555 are held in place using plastic clips rather than a number of evenly placed screws. To remove the front bezel, then, you'll need to gently prise it away from the rest of the screen casing using a plastic opening tool or a flat edged implement, (eg. a debit card or a razor blade.)

Step two

Once you have worked your way around the edges of the front bezel, prising it away from the screen casing, remove it completely from the machine and, set it aside safely. Note: attached to the back of the bezel, you should see a small magnet. This magnet helps put the machine into sleep mode when the screen is closed, so, it is imperative that it is not inadvertently lost during the replacement process. 

Step three 

Having removed the front bezel, you should see the exposed Dell Studio 1555 screen being held in place by four screws, (one in each corner.) Unscrews these screws and, set them aside safely. One you have removed all of these screws, gently pull the top of the damaged screen towards you, (taking care if the damage to the display is extensive.) At the top of the screen, you should see a small cable running towards the machine's webcam. Disconnect this cable. 

Step four

Continue to pull the broken screen towards you, allowing it to rest, face down, on the keyboard in front. At the back of the screen, you should see a large cable being held in place by strips of adhesive. Peel back the adhesive and disconnect this cable from the back of the screen.

Step five 

Remove the damaged screen from the body of the machine. To fit your replacement Dell Studio 1555 screen, simply complete the above instructions in reverse. It's really that simple!
