My laptop screen is loose - Compaq presario 700

I've got a Compaq presario 700 and the screen weighs a ton. It's real loose and collapses from its own weight.

I don't see any obvious ways to take the screen off the laptop - plus I know there's lots of wires in there.

So any advice? Do I have to send it to the manufacturer? Should I use a rosen bag? Should I open it up myself (if that's even possible)?

Donot do anything yourself if you are not familiar with  working with screens.

I would highly recommend you to send it to the manufacture or ask the company that sold it to you.

I assume you might have got extended warrantly for your laptop. If yes, it is really good

Extended warranty - no. So not really good. But based on your warning, at least I won't rip the thing apart.

I'll probably just live with it. But if I were to send it to the manufacturer, I'd probably tear it apart myself. Really, I can't see how to get that screen removed. Everything's sealed up.

maybe a hammer?
