@chris - we don't really provide support on component level logic board repair. That issue is usually a problem with the top case with the reed switch near the trackpad.

I am beginning the process of repairing the fault in the logic board that causes the mbp to sleep randomly, could you list tools, equipment and or parts that will be needed to perform the repair

@Carmela - sometimes you can get lucky with a magnet getting it out, but the proper way is removing the logic board.

@Dovie - I'm not sure what you mean. The screen isn't connected to the hard drive.

Thanks, all the videos were most helpful and I was able to successfully swap out the LCD screen on my Mac Book Pro. I did make one little minor booboo though. I accidentally put one of the Top Case Screws into the screw hole for the DVI port. Any ideas on how to get it out?

How do you disconnect the screen from the hard drive?

@Gary - technically you can, but they typically only come with the top case, and installing a previously removed one generally won't go back on very well.
