Can I replace my Dell Inspiron 14z-5423 screen?

We understand how frustrating it can be when you break your Dell Inspiron 14z-5423 screen. Though daunting at first, however, laptop screen replacement requires very little technical expertise. What's more, in replacing your laptop screen yourself, you could save valuable time and money. Below, you'll find step by step instructions that will help guide you through the laptop screen replacement process. 

How to replace a Dell Inspiron 14z-5423 screen 

Step one 

Before doing anything else, remove the battery from your laptop and ensure that the machine is unplugged. You should also ensure that you have disconnected any, (and all,) peripheral devices, (such as memory sticks and/or speakers.) Next, use a flat-edged implement or your fingers to prise the front bezel away from the rest of the screen casing. Note: take care when working off the front bezel so as to avoid snapping it in the process. Once you have removed, (and safely set aside,) the front bezel, you should see the broken Dell Inspiron 14z-5423 screen being held in place by four screws, (one in each corner.) Remove each of these screws and set them aside safely, also. 

Step two 

Once you've removed the screws holding the broken screen in place, take hold of the top of the screen and pull it towards you. Proceed by laying the broken screen, face down, on the laptop keyboard At the bottom of the screen, you should see a ribbon-like cable attached to a gold connector. Disconnect this cable from its connector, (peeling back any strips of adhesive if necessary.) You should now be able to remove the broken Dell Inspiron 14z-5423 screen from your laptop. To fit your new screen, all you need to do is complete the instructions outlined above in reverse. It's really that simple!
