If you don't have to worry about warranty and know which end of the screwdriver to hold, its no problem ;-]
\015\012Seriously it is a very simple job. You should be able to find instructions online to see where the screws are hidden. Generally on a laptop you uncover the hinges first by sliding a cover off. Then a plastic cover between that and your keyboard. And then 3-4 screws to remove the keyboard. There will be 2 or 3 connectors for the display, two will be display and the other may be for a wifi card antenna. There will be 4 screws on the inside hinges and usually two more from the outside back. Once those are out and the connectors released the display comes right out. This is about a 10 minute job.
\015\012The hardest part of any laptop repair is figuring out how to open the case. So taking the hinge covers and that top plastic filler piece off without resorting to a big hammer is the hard part. Putting them back on is slightly easier but can take a few tries before they seat right. Make sure you have lots of light and a clear workspace, good screwdrivers, and something to put the screws in. I use one of those 7 day pill reminder boxes and put each type of screw into its own compartment. That helps avoid the dreaded spare parts after the job is done problem. And make sure to give yourself enough time to take it apart and put it back together in one go.
\015\012It's not a hard repair at all, just takes a bit of preparation.
