One of the kids managed to break his laptop screen a while ago, its an Acer netbook. I was tempted to bin it but decided to investigate replacing the screen. The damage is not very clear from the pic, it was the internal structure that broke not the face of the screen, most of the marks you see are kid slime. (you know, sweets, snot, that sort of thing). I should have a taken a photo before I disconnected it, but there you go…
And looking here (laptop-power.co.uk – link removed by request), replacements aren’t very expensive. Of course you can only get glossy now rather then the easy to see matt ones originally fitted.
Anyway the screen came on time/quickly and painlessly, it was well packed, undamaged and fitted. All good things.
Following the vid, it was pretty straightforward, took under an hour and actually worked when I turned it back on. All good things. And I didn’t have any spare screws or connectors or anything. Another good thing.
I find this informational side of the internet incredibly useful. Have you taken a punt on something that you wouldn’t have considered without successful internet research?
