Modern laptop computers come equipped with many programs and features. However, they are all pretty useless without a functioning LCD screen. If you own an Asus Eee model laptop, and have recently damaged your screen, there's no need to throw it out just yet. Its possible to remove the damaged screen from the computer and replace it with a new LCD screen yourself, and you don't have to be tech savvy to do it. All it takes is some time and concentration.

Turn off and unplug your ASUs notebook. Remove the keyboard by depressing the small plastic tabs at the top of your keyboard while simultaneously lifting it. This will reveal a metal plate underneath the keyboard that covers the motherboard.
Disconnect the thick plastic ribbon that connects from the bottom-middle of the metal plate to the bottom-middle of the keyboard by sliding the plastic cable connector (located where the ribbon connects to the metal plate) forward to release the ribbon.
Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove each of the screws securing the metal plate. Then turn the computer over and remove the six screws from the bottom of the Asus. Four screws will be located along the back of the notebook, while the other two will be located on the front sides.
Turn your Asus right-side up and remove the top plastic housing from the bottom by gently pulling it up at each corner of the notebook. The metal plate will come off with the plastic housing, revealing the motherboard.
Disconnect the five wires that connect from the screen and housing of the computer to the motherboard. These are connected by plastic white plugs that can easily be unsnapped with your fingers. They are located on the top-left and bottom-centre of the motherboard.
Remove the four screws from the top of the LCD screen with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Then remove the bottom two screws to release the frame from the screen.
Separate the two halves of the screen by working a fingernail around the length and width of the screen. Your Asus Eee screen is now separated from the body of the computer. Replace the old screen with a new one (available at any Asus retailer or online) and reassemble the laptop in the reverse order you took it apart.
