@Luke - the one in the very corner is the microphone. The similar connector right below that is the speaker.

Can you tell me what the cable is that you are unplugging at 4:21 in the video? You remove two cables there, the first one is the 3-prong right speaker cable, what is that second one? The connector snapped and I need to replace that cord.

@Smith - For the screws, it's not a huge concern, just make sure you are using the correct screws and tighten until it seems secure. As far as static electricity, it is best to power it down and remove the battery, and ground yourself. Our techs will use anti-static wrist straps and anti-static mats while performing a repair for a customer.

Also, my mother has been pestering me about getting shocked when I take apart various electronics around the house. (◔_◔) I always power down the things I take apart, but do you have to take any more precautions than that with a macbook? I notice that you just use your hands in this video. Is this something I need to worry about?

When you remove screws, do you have to worry about torque? I know that hard drives require a screwdriver with a certain torque setting to put the screws back in so the machine works properly. Does this also apply to more general parts of taking apart the computer, like taking off the back cover and screws holding in the LCD? Thank you so much!

@Michael - about all it can be is the LCD cable unless the logic board was damaged during the repair, so I'd start by reseating and checking the cables.
