Yeh replace a few laptop screens at work on Dell laptops and HP's

Unclip where the power buttons are along the top will be the socket to plug the screen in and a screw for the earth!

Unscrew/ unplug these, undo the screws holding the screen in place (plastic screen covers)

swap screen over DO NOT TOUCH parts of it usually labeled also 100% wear a static wrist strap if handling a screen!

Then reverse the process!

Takes about 30mins to take old one out and new one in so just try and source a screen on ebay

:thumbs:

Screens usually go for about 100+

i use it round the house a lot, wirelessly, so a moniter isnt really an option

its alright anyway, i can still use it, its just not perfect

i'll get onto the insurance people, get them to send me a claim form and get a dell one

If you have a VGA plug on the back of your laptop. you could just use a monitor from a PC if you have one lying around and dont use the laptop on trains etc

Yeah im pretty sure if you find a decent computer hardware specialist you should be able to buy a new screen but no idea on price.

I'd replace the laptop mate.

As said replacing the screen alone could cost you as much as 200. You could get a decent 2nd hand laptop for 250 off the bay.

Im not sure tho, i suppose it depends where you get it done.
