Replacing the Screen on a Lenovo IdeaPad S100

Can I replace my broken Lenovo IdeaPad S100 screen?

A broken Lenovo IdeaPad S100 screen can be incredibly annoying and frustrating. Contrary to popular belief, however, laptop screen replacement requires very little technical expertise. In fact, some of our customers have managed to change their screens in half an hour! Below, you'll find step by step instructions that will help guide you through the Lenovo IdeaPad S100 screen replacement process. 

How to replace a Lenovo IdeaPad S100 screen

Step one 

Before doing anything else, unplug your laptop from the mains power and remove the battery. You should also make sure that you have disconnected any, (and all,) peripheral devices, (such as speakers and hard drives.) Once you've done that, use a flat edged implement to prise off the aesthetic covers in the bottom two corners of the font bezel. Once you have removed the aesthetic covers, unscrew the screws hidden underneath and, set them aside safely.

Step two 

Next, firmly, (but gently,) prose the front bezel away from the screen casing. Remember: you'll need to unhook the front bezel from the front hinges before removing it altogether. Once you have removed the front bezel, you should see the broken Lenovo IdeaPad S100 screen being held in place by 4 further screws. Remove all of these screws and, set them aside safely. Next, take hold of the damaged screen, (taking care if the damage to it is extensive,) and pull it towards you, allowing it to lay, face down, on the keyboard in front. At the bottom of the screen, you should see a thin cable attached. Disconnect this cable.

Step three 

You should now be able to remove the broken Lenovo IdeaPad S100 screen from the body of the machine. To fit your newly bought replacement screen, simply complete the above, step by step instructions in reverse. It's really that simple!
