    I have a surface pro 1 and the screen is warped and coming off at the bottom and right side. Still perfectly viewable but I cannot press the screen flush to the backing. As if something inside has swelled, possibly the battery? Maybe it's just that warped though.

    Can I take the screen completely off and just use the video out on the device or docking station to an external display? Sorta like breadboarding a desktop. I want to take it apart but still be able to use it. I don't want to order a new screen and battery until I've taken the screen off and looked inside to see if it's worth trying to repair. But still need to use it. This is in case I can't get the screen to work again after taking it off.
