Laptop Hardware: LCD Screens, DJ Jack, Battery Packs, Touch Pads & Plastic Fittings
Laptop screens are fully replaceable—we’ll demonstrate how to perform a replacement, which varies from device type to device type.
The DC jack is the laptops power source; they are often soldered into the board on older models, or held by a cable in new models.
Batteries are easy and simple to replace, but touchpads area not and are typically model and OEM specific.
Touch pads on laptop computers like the other components vary in style and position, but for the most part all touchpads allow for the same functionality: up/down, left/right scrolling, as well as mouse function such as left and right clicks for shortcut use.
And the plastic components or segments of our laptop are referred to as fittings. These refer to the outside casing and top and bottom panels, basically all the housings that hold the laptop together. As with any other surface and plastic service in particular, fittings will get scratched, chip, and become otherwise damaged and unseemly but no worries, they are “ALL” replaceable.
In all cases, a laptop’s make and model really do determine whether or not these components can be easily swapped out and repaired, are standardized to use universal replacement parts or are unique and specific to the OEM.
