I have an acer aspire 5920 laptop with a broken screen; I pressed too hard! The first surface seems to be intact but the bit behind went into lava lamp mode before displaying lines vetically etc (and no sense of what the output is at all). The laptop still functions with an external monitor. I have recently scoped for a repair and they wish to assess whether it is a screen or LCD problem. Can I not just order a new LCD screen and fit myself?
Excellent vid from Fruitbat there. Easy laptop. Mine is a full strip to get the screen detached and the bezel off.
Take static precautions when fiddling around inside laptop. ie earth yourself regularly. Touching a plugged in Desktop case or radiator valve pipe will do.
Don't wander round over nylon carpets and get charged up.
All the Acer Aspire screens on amazon seem same type but you can double check LED or CCFL backlight by Googling your monitor Model number.
