HP Probook Screen Replacement

Replacing the screen on an HP ProBook involves a few steps, and it’s important to follow them carefully to avoid damaging the laptop or the new screen. Here’s a general guide, but please note that specific steps may vary depending on the exact model of your HP ProBook. Make sure to consult your laptop’s manual or documentation for model-specific instructions.

Important Note: If your laptop is under warranty, it’s recommended to contact HP support or an authorized service center to avoid voiding the warranty.

Here’s a general guide to replacing the screen on an HP ProBook:

Tools and Materials Needed:

  1. Replacement screen compatible with your HP ProBook model.
  2. Small Phillips screwdriver.
  3. Plastic pry tool or a guitar pick.
  4. Anti-static wrist strap (recommended).

Steps:

  1. Power off the Laptop:
    • Shut down your laptop completely and disconnect the power adapter.
  2. Remove the Battery (if applicable):
    • If your laptop has a removable battery, remove it to ensure safety during the replacement process.
  3. Remove Screws:
    • Use a small Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws securing the screen bezel. These screws are typically located around the edges of the screen.
  4. Remove the Bezel:
    • Gently pry the plastic bezel away from the screen. Start at one corner and work your way around. Be careful not to use excessive force, as you don’t want to crack or damage the bezel.
  5. Remove the Old Screen:
    • Once the bezel is removed, you should see the screws securing the screen to the laptop’s chassis. Remove these screws and carefully lift the old screen out.
  6. Disconnect the Display Cable:
    • Locate the display cable connector on the back of the old screen and disconnect it. This is usually a small connector that can be gently unplugged.
  7. Connect the New Screen:
    • Connect the display cable to the new screen. Ensure it’s securely attached.
  8. Secure the New Screen:
    • Place the new screen into position and secure it with the screws you removed earlier.
  9. Reattach the Bezel:
    • Carefully snap the plastic bezel back into place. Start at one corner and work your way around.
  10. Reinstall Screws:
    • Use the Phillips screwdriver to reinstall the screws on the bezel.
  11. Reinstall Battery (if applicable) and Power On:
    • If you removed the battery, put it back in. Power on your laptop to test the new screen.

Remember, this is a general guide, and specific steps might vary based on your laptop model. Always refer to your laptop’s manual or documentation for accurate instructions. If you’re uncomfortable performing the replacement yourself, it’s advisable to seek professional assistance or contact HP support.
