How to Replace an Acer Aspire V5 Screen

Can I replace my Acer Aspire V5 screen?

Have you broken your Acer Aspire V5 screen? There's no need to worry. Armed with the correct information, you can easily replace your laptop screen yourself. Below, you'll find simple, step by step instructions that will help guide you through the Acer Aspire V5 screen replacement process. 

Acer Aspire V5 screen replacement 

Step one 

Unplug your laptop from the mains power and, remove the battery. You should also check to make sure that you have disconnected all external devices connected to your laptop, (such as speakers, memory sticks and/or hard drives.) Next, work your way around each edge of the front bezel, prising it away from the broken screen. Apply pressure to each edge of the front bezel, easing it away from the screen casing. Remember to take care when removing the front bezel from your laptop as it is brittle and, often easily broken. 

Step two 

Once you've removed the front bezel, unscrew the screws, (four in total; one in each corner,) holding the broken screen in place. 

Step three 

Carefully take hold of the top of the screen, beginning to pull it towards you. Note: you may find that the back of the screen is also held in place by adhesive. If you find that this is, indeed, the case, you'll need to apply some force when pulling the damaged display from its holding frame. Attached to the back, (and top,) of the screen is the web camera cable. You'll need to disconnect this cabe before continuing. 

Step four 

Once you've disconnected the web camera cable, take hold of the top of the broken screen and pull it towards you, laying it to rest, face down, on the keyboard in front. On the back, (and very bottom,) of the screen, you should see a cable attached to a gold connector and held in place using a stip of adhesive. Disconnect this cable. 

Step five 

Lift the broken Acer Aspire V5 screen free from your laptop and, set it aside. To replace your old screen with a newly bought replacement, simply complete the steps, (as outlined above,) in reverse.
