    Another thought before the toaster treatment would be to see if you could use it as is. A chromebook with a broken screen would still connect to a TV and stream video. I’ve used one like that for a while to “watch TV” in my bedroom. At that point, it basically becomes a Chromebox that can’t be upgraded.

    logic board repairs [corrupt security (boot) chip, 2-4Gb SSD failure] are more costly than a new or refurbished Chromebook as they require a new or used unit that can only be from the same model chromebook that is being parted out, and that is a cautious purchase as they usually do not guarantee them. Power jacks are inexpensive but require a soldering iron. The lower cases clamshells are mostly plastic clip retained and youll likely break a few clips trying to seperate them. Use a plastic knife or guitar pick to seperate the clamshells and place the screen back on the bench when you are pushing the bezel back on. I was cringing when the video guy was bending the screen pushing the bezel on.

    Great article. I had to send my Toshiba Chromebook 2 in for warranty repairs and it took Toshiba 5 weeks to fix it. If you have to send your Chromebook in for repairs, better prepare to be without it for awhile.

    To separate the lower clamshell case of a Chromebook 2, you’ll need a spudger to do the job properly. Jeweler screwdrivers tend to mar and break the case. Alternately, you can use automotive feeler gauges and they’re more widely available. The thinnest ones in the set worked best for me.
