Re: help with replacing netbook LCD
You remove the little rubber pads on the lid, and there might be some small round pieces of plastic as well. Under them will be some small screws, remove hem, then pry the lid open. It will most likely take some pressure, but do not be too forceful, it is not unlikely that you missed a screw. Once the lid is open, there will be two small metal strips, one on each side of the lcd. Each one has two screws that go into the side of the LCD. Once you remove them, it should come free.
This is how it worked when I took apart my Eee 900a. Most netbooks share a fairly similar design, so I imagine this is how the Dell would be laid out as well.
