Laptop Screen Replacement

  Legslip 14:58 22 Jul 2009

My daughter has stood on her laptop and wrecked the screen. Can anyone advise as to:

*where to get a replacement screen?

*how to fit it or get instructions to do so?

It is a Packard Bell BG 45

How old is it?
You could try Packard Bell?
Or buy a copy of Micromart at newsagents, plenty of adverts for replacement screens.

To be honest, I wouldn't attempt to repair it yourself...:-)

you can try and get one off ebay which is a bit risky, but have you tried claiming on your house insurance contents cover, usually you are covered. professional replacement will cost about £200.00. to get a screen yourself will probably be at least £150, you would also need to get it out to check the part number to ensure you are getting the right one as there are a lot of variations.

Thanks everyone. I think I'm getting nearer and have had a quote for £100 for supply only. Just need to be confident enough to fit it myself.

some years ago when our son broke his laptop screen we sent the laptop to his insurance co and THEY did the legwork of finding a replacement and having it fitted.

I'm probably a bit late with this reply but I've recently replaced the screen on my Toshiba laptop. It's not at all difficult to do, a bit fiddly as some of the screws are very small but otherwise it's an half-hour job.
Just remember to remove the battery before starting the job and be careful removing the screen bezel as thet can be a bit fragile.
There's quite a few web sites giving illustarted 'how to' guides, there's even one on ebay!

Thanks everyone. I was going to do it myself but on the PBell two of the bezel screws were unreachable so I did send it away to one of the suggested sites to be done. They did an excellent job. Thanks again.
