First find the bulb... you can get them n thre internet.
2nd, you'll have to open the screen, so find ther manual... also online.

It was fairly easy for my toshiba, but did require a bit of soldering.

Heres a breif howto

Out of curiosity, what laptop do you have? Also, is the screen CCFL or LED backlit?
