My granddaughters friend dropped her laptop on to the floor. Now when it opens all you get is a Multi colour screen and if you look closely at the bottom right you can see small cracks running up inside the screen.The actual screen looks ok and the problem looks like it is inside the screen and not actually on it. It is a Fujitsu Amilo li 2735 model No Ms 228. Now the problem is My daughter took out a 3 year warranty on it but has been told accidental damage cover was only for the first year. Household Insurance she has to pay the first £150 so that looks like a no go. It is about 1-2 year old would it be better just to scrap it or maybe cheaper to repair it. And just thinking if she kept it could you hook it up to an External monitor and would that work. Any thoughts or advise welcome.
Thanks both. looks like the same company different areas. But having a look at what they charge for a new screen and then adding the cost of post and packaging it looks like a repair would be out of the question. Probably cheaper investing in a new laptop but as both parents are not sure if their jobs are safe or not at the moment I cannot see that happening either. Looks like it would be cheaper investing in an external monitor which might do them temporarily.
There are a number of replacement screens available ranging from £12.99 (used) on ebay to £60/80 new. It's not too difficult to replace it yourself and I expect that there will be sevral video tutorials available if you Google it.
Sorry I retract a large part of my post as I didn't look at the links carefully enough. The screen cannot be obtained for £12.99 that is just for the posts. The screen itself is £53.62 plus VAT plus shipping.
Thanks for the links I will save them until I see my daughter to see what she is going to do. I would not attempt to repair it myself but I know someone who can. Thanks everyone that has got to be cheaper than buying a new Monitor.
Latest news is That my Grand Daughters friend who dropped the laptop, Her father came round last night and took the laptop away to try and get it repaired. I thought that was very nice of him whether he can repair it or not It was very good of him to offer.
