How to Replace an Acer Aspire One D255E Screen

Can I replace my Acer Aspire One D255E?

A broken laptop screen can be a source of great frustration. Contrary to popular belief, however, laptop screen replacement requires very little . In fact, some of our customers have managed to replace their broken laptop screen in just half an hour! Below, you''ll find step by step instructions, (as well as a number of resources,) to help guide you through the Acer Aspire One D255E screen replacement process. 

Replacing an Acer Aspire One D255E 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, memory sticks and/or hard drives.) When you're ready to begin, use a flat edged implement or your fingers to prise the aesthetic covers, (found at the bottom of the display) away from the front bezel. Once you've removed, (and set aside,) the aesthetic covers, remove the screws hidden uunderneath and, set them aside safely, also. 


Step two 

Next, use a flat edged implement or your fingers to prise the front bezel away from the rest of the screen casing. Work your way around each side of the front bezel. When you are sure that you have sufficiently loosened the front bezel, rmeove it from your laptop and, set it aside safely. Once you've removed the front bezel, you should see the broken Acer Aspire One D255E screen being held in place by four further screws, (one in each corner.) Remove each of these screws and, set them aside safely. Once you've done that, pull the damaged display slightly towards you and, disconnect the top of the web camera cable. 

Step three

Next, pull the broken screen further towards you and lay it to rest, face down, on the keyboard in front. On the back of the screen, you should see along, thin cable attached. This is the rest of the web camera cable. Remove this cable from the back of the screen, loosening any adhesive, if necessary. At the bottom, (and back,) of the screen, you should also see a ribbon like cable attached to a golden connector. Disconnect this cable by releasing it from the connector, (peeling back any strips of adhesive holding it in place, if necessary.) 

Step four 

You should now be able to remove the broken Acer Aspire One D255E screen from your laptop. To fit your newly bought replacement screen, all you need to do is complete the above instructions in reverse. It's really that simple.
