Sony Vaio PCG-F430 Display - get apart

    I have a Sony Vaio PCG-F430 that has a loose ribbon cable in the display. I
    have had it repaired twice, once by Sony under waranty and once by a local
    shop. The shop explained that all they needed to do was plug the ribbon
    cable back in. The problem is intermittently occuring again and I would
    prefer to fix it myself.

    Does anybody know how to get the case for the display on this model apart?

    "Typically", there are a number of small, soft, rubber plugs covering
    the access to the screws. The halves of the case are then held together
    by plastic interlocks that must be pried apart. These are, again
    typically, fragile, and should be separated with a case cracker tool
    which applies even pressure over a large area. You might find specific
    help at the unofficial Sony board:
