Damaged Screen on Laptop.

  Wak 20:02 04 Nov 2004

Hi, My Granddaughter bought a laptop about 18 months ago (value about £1000) for use at University and the screen has been badly damaged.
I'm trying to obtain the make and model of the machine so I can make some enquiries but in the meantime can anyone tell me if:-
1. the screens can be replaced,
2. is it a do-it-yourself job, and
3. is it financially viable?

TIA. Wak.

The magazine Micromart published weekly on Thursdays carries many Ads for computer spares
including Laptops.
Screens are pricey
Is it a DIY? Maybee how good are you and what sort of tools do you have?
Broadly speaking Laptops like desktops are modular and bits snap or bolt together.
But a laptop is that much more fiddly.
You may discover that a good secondhand laptop to replace the damaged one is a better bet.

Thanks for the info, Jack, I'll wait for the make and model no. of the laptop and then get the magazine.
I consider myself to be fairly handy with fiddly repairs etc so I may "have a go" as they say.
After all, she can't really use it as it is now so nothing will be lost even if I'm not successful.
Thanks again, Wak.
