There is absolutely nothing worse than when you turn your computer on, and it doesn’t work. This is undoubtedly true if you have some much-needed work to do or haven’t changed your Facebook status in quite some time. How will anyone know if you’re feeling grumpy if you can’t get the screen on your Dell Inspiron 1525 to work? Don’t worry; hopefully, we’ll be able to help you get your laptop up and running.
It should be noted that this isn’t something a novice should try to do. If you’ve worked on computers in the past, then this shouldn't be all that hard. If you haven’t, then take your laptop in to be repaired. The risk to your investment is high, and you should be aware of that. A task like this is best suited for someone who knows their way around a computer.
Always take proper precaution before doing anything with a computer. Make sure that your computer isn’t plugged in. You will want to unplug your machine before doing any of this. The risk of getting shocked is real, and it can have a devastating impact on not only your computer but to yourself as well. Nothing good happens when there are live wires filled with plenty of juice.
Yes, you're going to have to remove the computer screen. There is no other way to fix it. You have to take the computer screen off and replace it with a new one. That’s the bad news, and it was important we got it out of the way quickly. However, the good news is, it’s not all that difficult to do. This entire process should take you less time than it would to eat a hamburger. Though, it’s a whole lot less fun than eating a burger.
The first thing you’re going to want to do is pry the small rubber pieces off of the bezels. There are only four in each corner. You should take some time and identify where all four are before beginning the project. This way you’ll be able to quickly and easily go from bezel to bezel without any problems. It will also give you the chance to get familiar with your screen. You’ll need to be comfortable with it to do the things that follow.
Next, take out the screws
There are four screws in the bezels that need to come out. Unscrew each one of the four. Now you should see six smaller screws on the other side of the screen. You may need to use different screwdrivers with each set of screws. Now remove the six smaller screws carefully while making sure to save the screws for later. You will need them for when your new screen arrives. Even if your new screen comes with screws, you still want to make sure the old ones don’t end up on the floor. The last thing you want is to step on one of the screws while barefoot.
Release the cable on the back of the screen
You should see a cable on the back of the screen. You need to release this to remove the screen. There is also a power connector at the bottom of the screen. You’re going to want to pull that as well. Now your screen should be off, and you’re ready to go. That wasn’t so bad. Was it? The entire process didn’t take long at all. Though, if you’re new to repairing your own computers, then it was probably a hectic task in the beginning. Working on your own computer is almost like trying to give yourself surgery. It can make you feel very uncomfortable, but at least with computers, there is no blood.
Replace the screen and do everything in reverse
All you have to do now is replace the screen and do everything you read here in reverse. You’ll be able to use your laptop just like it was new. Don't make the mistake of not plugging it back in. You may think your new screen is a dud if it doesn’t turn on right away. It very well could be that your battery is dead and you need some juice. You wouldn’t be the first person to try to start up a computer with a dead battery and think their attempted screen replacement went bust.
Working on your own computers isn’t all that difficult
There once was a time when you had to be a real nerd to do any sort of work on your computer. Back then computers were big bulky machines that could easily make you feel intimidated. Today, things are much different. Computers are lean mean working machines. They’re lightweight and extremely portable. The task you’re about to do would’ve seemed almost impossible twenty years ago. A laptop then was much heavier, and those who carried them everywhere they went didn’t need to go to the gym. All they needed to do was tote around their laptop for a mile or two a day.
This should solve your problem
You may have had no display at all. The problem also could’ve been that you had wavy lines when trying to look at your laptop. Any display problems should be resolved now. After all, you did replace your screen. If you continue to have problems, then it’s time to take your computer back to where you bought it. Those who are new to computers can easily find themselves misdiagnosing problems. It’s another reason why you should have someone look at your computer if you’re unsure of what the problem is. If they tell you that your screen needs to be replaced, then all you have to do is follow the instructions above. It would be best to have a second opinion then only to rely on your unqualified answer.
Hopefully, you’ve found these instructions useful. Removing and replacing your screen should take you just a few minutes. It’s not a difficult task at all. You’ll be amazed by how much money you just got done saving. Computer repair specialists love to do jobs like these because they’re super easy to do and people are willing to pay top dollar. No computer lover can go more than a few hours without watching the latest and greatest funny kitten videos.
