This is a quick post showing a DV2000 tear-down.

Level of experience needed: Advanced (this is not to say anyone should not be able to do this it will just take more time)

flip the laptop over and open it up .. you have already removed all of the screws that are holding the keyboard in. There are 4 plastic keepers that are still holding it in place. They are easily by-passed if you pull the keyboard from the middel top and bow it just a bit.



Fold the keyboard back on to the track pad and you will find the release for the ribbon cable .


Release it by pussing the tabs twards the LCD panel and place the keyboard off to the side in a safe place.
Also shown here is the built in Mic connector and the track pad cable.

Here is a closer shot of the Track Pad Ribbon cable ... remove it now so you don't for get later .. and accidently pull on it these are delicate and it dosen't take much to damage them.


Move up to the Quick Launch bezel..  pry up on the right side and it will come free.. Don't just try and rip it off you still have the ribbon cable and the power button cable to deal with still.

Heres a good look at the Quick Launch cable ... remove it from the system board ..



All the way to the left is the Power button connection ..




Once you have the majority of the connectos disconnected remove the LCD panel cable and the screws circled. 



De-route all of the remaining cables from their keepers and pull the Wi-Fi cable up through the chassis and you are ready to move on to removeing the LCD panel.

There are 2 screws on the left side of the lcd panel..



And 2 more on the right side .. once removed make sure all of the cables are free and lift the panel off of the chassis ... set it off to the side in a safe place remember it does not take much to damage these panels.

Run your finger nail ( or a cut up credit card if you don't have strong enough nails) around the out side of the top chassis to dis-engage the plastic clips and the top chassis will come right off. place that off to the side and move on to the next step.

great tutorial, very clear and well illustrated!

unfortunately i had some trouble unplugging the webcam cable. in other words i smashed the white plastic connector which holds the wires (not the socket on the mb). now my problem is that i have lost the order of the wires in the plug.
can someone please help me with that order?
these the colors i have: black, red, yellow, orange, purple(not sure if purple actually)

thanks!
