Broken Laptop Screen
« on: November 01, 2012, 06:28:53 PM »
My granddaughter broke the screen on her brand new laptop.  Do any of you know of a good source to get it repaired that won't be cost prohibitive.

Any chance an extended warranty was purchased for the laptop?  If so, that may cover repairs.  Otherwise, you may want to check with local tech shops as well as where the OEM for estimates.

Thanks, Corinne.  I know my daughter did not have the money to purchase an extended warranty.

WalnutCreek,
If you find that you can not get it sorted via extended warranty.
And find the local repaire shop ask for EX-amount of £ an hour plus the £ fixed fee plus vat
You could always fit it your self .
Yes it seems a daunting task but if you take your time you will be able to replace it your self saving you the cost of replacing it.
You should be able to get a replacement between £70 - £90 (New) I would not go for a secondhand one but if money is tight then go for one that has a guaranty.
If you do want any help replacing it you can always ask for help I for one will be willing to talk you though it step by step
all you need is a couple of screw drivers and tweezers
the only other thing you need is to set a side time to do it
you can all ways take photos after each set of things you do that way when putting the new screen in you have a photos to help guide you.

Whats the make and modle of your granddaughter Laptop ?
