View Full Version : Laptop Screen cracked ? What to do?

09-05-2010, 10:02 PM
My laptop (the one in my specs) screen is cracked which has basically made he computer unusable. I don want to replace the whole computer because of the prise.

I rang up Asus and they said that will set me back $450. That seemed bit too much so i checked on the net and found some sites (screentekinc and LCDsforless) that sell laptop screens much cheaper then Asus. But you have to install the screen yourself and i have never heard of these websites before so they could all be scams.

Anyone have any ideas?

Tips for you:

If you need to retrieve your data before you can locate a replacement screen, hook an external monitor to the laptop. Save all the extra parts from the second laptop; you may have to perform more transplants in the future.

The plastic clips break a lot easier than you might think, so use a light hand when working in this area. Obviously, unplug the laptop and remove the battery before doing anything.
