    Typically you have 4-6 screws around the front casing, usually hidden by small rubber tabs.

    Then you usually have to remove the plastic bezel above the keyboard. There will be screws that are holding on the hinges.

    You might have to remove some of the keyboard or more to get to the Lvds cable to disconnect it, maybe not.

    Well at some point you might have to pry the case apart around the Lcd if you want the Lcd removed from the case. That is kind of nerve wracking because it sounds like the case is breaking.

    And some of the newer models do have the wireless wire around the top half of the case and some don't. So you may need to pry the top half apart to remove the wire.

    Also the backlight wires need to be unplugged but that usually isn't a problem.
