Laptops are still several hundred dollars so if your screen gets damaged what do you do? In most cases you can replace the display for less than $100. In the video here we will show you how to replace the LCD display in a HP DV6700 series laptop. The steps will basically be the same for any laptop from any manufacturer. The first thing you need to do is get a replacement screen. You can do a search on Google or Ebay for your model to check the price and get ordering information. To complete the display swap you will need a set of precision screwdrivers such as this set: 32 piece precision driver set
Most laptops from HP, Dell, Toshiba etc use Phillips screws to hold the case together but they use several different sizes in different locations so a full set is better than just one small driver bit. Below is a video that show how to dis-assembly the screen and replace the display on the HP DV6700 series laptop.
