This is a step by step guide on replacing the LCD screen of an HP M61035dx laptop. The screen was purchased for a great price from and put in by Bill from

This particular model of laptop was typical compared to others, and shouldn’t take more than 15 or 20 minutes. You only have to remove 4 screws and one connector to take off the old LCD, so it wasn’t difficult at all.

STEP 1: Using a flathead screw driver, plastic guitar pic, or your fingernails, separate the front panel from the back at the seam where the yellow arrow is pointing. This will make a snapping noise, which is alright. Unsnap the front all the way around the screen including the bottom. You will be able to lift the bottom hinge area of this front panel away from the base.

STEP 2: There are four Phillips screws on top of the LCD holding the frame into place where the yellow arrows are pointing.  Remove these four screws.

STEP 4: Lift the tape on the connector and unplug the connector.

STEP 5: Once the connector and gray wire are no longer attached to the old LCD, dispose of the old LCD and place the new one face down on the keyboard with the plug near the connector.

STEP 6: Plug the connector into the new LCD. Gently press the tape down so the adhesive sticks again.

STEP 7: Once the plug is in and the tape down, lift the LCD screen so that it is up against the back panel with the silver frame bars on both top and bottom of the LCD. See STEP 2 image.

STEP 8: Screw in the 4 screws that you took out in step 2.

STEP 9: Place the plastic front panel in place and snap it back into place. Some force will be necessary but be careful not to put any pressure on the actual LCD screen as it is very fragile.

STEP 10: Turn on the laptop and if you did everything properly it should work great.
