Asus VivoBook X512F LCD Screen Replacement
We replace LCD Screen on Asus Laptops for our customers from Toronto, Richmond Hill and all GTA.
If you need to replace the LCD screen on your Asus VivoBook X512F laptop, you can follow these steps:
- Turn off your laptop and unplug it from the power source.
- Close the laptop lid and place it upside down on a clean, flat surface.
- Remove the battery from the laptop by sliding the battery release latch to the unlocked position and lifting the battery out.
- Locate the rubber screw covers on the bezel around the LCD screen. Use a flat-head screwdriver or a plastic pry tool to remove these covers. Underneath each cover, you’ll find a screw that needs to be removed.
- Use a plastic pry tool or your fingers to gently pry the bezel away from the screen. Start at one corner and work your way around the screen until the bezel is completely removed.
- Locate the four screws that secure the LCD screen to the hinge brackets. Remove these screws using a Phillips-head screwdriver.
- Carefully lift the LCD screen up and away from the laptop. You may need to disconnect the video cable and any other cables that are connected to the back of the screen.
- Install the new LCD screen by following these steps in reverse order. Connect any cables to the back of the new screen and secure it to the hinge brackets with the four screws. Then, snap the bezel back into place and secure it with the screws you removed earlier.
- Finally, reinstall the battery and turn on your laptop to make sure the new screen is working properly.
Note: If you’re not comfortable performing these steps yourself, it’s best to bring your laptop to our professional at MT Systems for screen replacement.

There are several possible causes of a cracked LCD screen on a laptop:
- Physical impact: One of the most common causes of a cracked LCD screen is physical impact, such as dropping the laptop or hitting it against a hard surface.
- Pressure: Applying pressure on the screen, for example, by leaning on the lid or placing a heavy object on it, can also cause the screen to crack.
- Manufacturing defects: In some cases, manufacturing defects in the LCD screen or other components of the laptop can cause the screen to crack or malfunction.
- Extreme temperatures: Exposure to extreme temperatures, such as leaving the laptop in a hot car or exposing it to freezing temperatures, can cause the LCD screen to crack or malfunction.
- Age: Over time, the LCD screen on a laptop can become brittle and more prone to cracking or other types of damage.
It’s important to note that a cracked LCD screen cannot be repaired and must be replaced. If your laptop screen is cracked, it’s best to take it to a professional repair service or contact the manufacturer for a replacement.
There are two main types of LCD screens used in laptops:
- TN (Twisted Nematic) LCD Screens: This type of LCD screen is the most common and affordable option found in most laptops. TN screens offer fast response times and high refresh rates, which makes them ideal for gaming and other applications that require fast-moving images. However, they have limited viewing angles and color accuracy compared to other types of screens.
- IPS (In-Plane Switching) LCD Screens: IPS screens are a more expensive option but offer wider viewing angles and more accurate colors than TN screens. They are often preferred by graphic designers, photographers, and other professionals who require precise color reproduction. IPS screens also have slower response times than TN screens, which can result in motion blur in fast-moving images.
In addition to these two main types, there are also other types of LCD screens such as VA (Vertical Alignment) and OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) screens, but these are less commonly used in laptops.
