If you have a broken or damaged screen on your Dell Latitude, and are interested in a little project, you can attempt to replace the screen on your own. This is a fairly involved process, but it isn't nearly as difficult as you may think. Modern laptops, such as this one by Dell, are designed so that various components, such as the screen, can be removed with few problems and in a relatively short amount of time. And it requires only one tool.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Turn your Dell Latitude off and remove the power cable. Slide the battery out of its compartment on the underside of the computer and open the LCD screen as far as it will go.

  2. 2

    Insert the tip of your screwdriver in the seam where the plastic frame above the keyboard meets the side of the computer. Lift up to pop the frame out of place and remove it.

  3. 3

    Remove all screws above the keyboard.

  4. 4

    Lift the keyboard up by the top and unplug the ribbon cable where it connects at the back of it. Set the keyboard aside.

  5. 5

    Remove the single screw securing the display cable, located in the middle of the computer, just below the LCD screen.

  6. 6

    Unplug all four cables that run from the bottom of the LCD screen to the top of the computer.

  7. 7

    Remove the four screws (two on each hinge) from both hinges on the bottom corners of the LCD screen. Remove the LCD screen and set it aside.
