Hi and welcome to 365 Laptop Repair. This is a tutorial on how to do a MSI GS70 2OD screen replacement. There are a few things you are going to need to complete this repair. In this tutorial we will be using tweezers, a prying tool, a philips head screwdriver, and optionally a power philips screwdriver. You will also need a replacement LCD screen for your laptop.
In order to easily work on the screen, we separate the screen from the rest of the laptop. See our teardown video below on how to do so.
You can check out our video tutorial for this repair below.

Old LCD screen removal
First you will have to remove the plastic bezel that surrounds the LCD screen. You can use your fingers to lift it up and then remove it.

Next remove the 6 screws at the red arrows shown in the picture below.
Removing the screen screen
Once the 6 screws are removed, you will be able to lift the LCD up slightly so you can access the screen bracket screws (blue in the picture below) on both sides of the LCD. Remove the 4 screws from both sides.

Then gently flip the screen over and on the back at the bottom you will find a gold connector attached to the screen. Loosen the tape covering the connector and disconnect it.

Installing your new LCD screen
Attach your new LCD screen to the gold connector and flip it back up into place.
Reattach the LCD to the brackets on both sides, and then lay it down flat and replace the 6 screws holding it in place.
Then retrieve the plastic bezel and situate it properly on the screen. Finally, run your hands along the edges of the screen, snapping the bezel back into place as you go. Make sure it is fitted correctly or it won’t snap back into place.
