How do I remove the back lcd cover on my acer aspire 3610 laptop

Answers :

Come in from the front.
The Top Cover has the LCD screen attached to it, and the hinges are attached to it. When you have the laptop closed, you are viewing the Top Cover.

AC adapter unplugged (Charger), battery removed.
Around the LCD screen is a Screen Bezel. This bezel is removed first. Look carefully around the bezel. Upon close inspection you'll see a series of rubber rounded tiny pads. These are Screw Covers. Take a small flat tip Jewelers screwdriver, and remove them, or pry them up to one side, so that you can get to the screw head.

The statement -> Pry, sounds bad. In essence these screw covers, are a half moon shape (Almost) of some rubbery material, and have a glue that holds them on. This glue 'resembles' a type of rubber cement. If you carefully ease the flat tip towards the edge of the half moon shape, where it contacts the flat bezel, push in, and pry up, you'll see they come off relatively easy.

Most of the time if you store the screw covers upside down, glue surface up, you can reuse them with no additional glue needed.
The only problem you'll have with them, is they stick to the screwdriver tip, and your fingertips! Hard to put them somewhere!

Be sure to remove all of them. Generally there are 6. Two per side.
(Top, Bottom, Left Side, Right Side)
Now remove the Philips head screws underneath them. (Have this shape +) (No.1 Philips screwdriver)

Now you have to pop the bezel up, and off. I would use two Jewelers screwdrivers for this. A small kit of Jewelers screwdrivers, can be purchased from a number of places, if you don't have any. An inexpensive set should do just fine, ($5?)

The bezel has a parting line, (Crevice/Gap), where it meets the Top Cover. Sometimes it's a little tough to see. Start with a small flat tip Jewelers screwdriver, and see if you can ease it partially in this parting line. It's a little tough to get the first one started. If it seems as though it won't slide in a little, (Depth of 1/8th inch, or half the width of a No.2 pencil), then move over, try again.

DON'T come in from the LCD screen side. You'll damage the LCD screen, AND the bezel. (Even if you're replacing the LCD screen, you'll break the bezel. Has to be taken off from the outside edge)

Part way in, on the outside edge of the bezel, are locking tabs. These are made of plastic, and formed when the bezel was made. They are part of the bezel. They are spaced around the inside edge of the bezel. They are spaced, Locking tab, space. Locking tab, space. Locking tab, space.

This is why I suggested to move over with the screwdriver. You may be trying to put the screwdriver in, where a locking tab is.

Once you get a start, and have the flat tip Jewelers screwdriver in the parting line, take a second flat tip Jewelers screwdriver, and try to ease it in the gap you've made. Put it towards the end of the gap, where it narrows down. If you cannot, ease the end of the screwdriver you have in now, down. This will pry up on the bezel.
You will see the bezel bend. It fairly thin plastic at this edge, but this is TOUGH plastic. Don't go crazy, but it will bend pretty far, before it would break. Use a fair amount of pressure, but use finesse.

See if the bezel will pop up a bit. You can also move down a bit with the other flat tip Jewelers screwdriver, and try to make another pry point. Working two screwdrivers in this fashion, puts less strain on that plastic bezel.

When you get the bezel up far enough, you'll hear a loud pop, or snap sound. You'll think you broke the plastic bezel. Nope! Just one of those lock tabs letting go of the Top Cover. Keep working around the edge. Watch the top edge. If you have a built in webcam there are small wires close to the webcam. Look in while you're popping the bezel cover up. Use a flashlight if necessary.

Once you have the bezel off, you're home free!
You can now see the screws that hold the LCD screen to the Top Cover. You can see how the hinges are attached. After you're done, the bezel just snaps back into place, then the screws are put in, and the screw covers.
