New Laptop Screen

Postby Em Eye » Fri, 16 Dec 2005 9:20 am

Last night my lovely partner tripped over the cord of of my laptop and it crashed to the floor and the screen broke (I wasn't home so I haven't seen it) Apparently it turns on but the screen has nothing on it. It's a HP. Can I get the screen replaced?

Yes, just bring it to the HP service center. Be warned though, it'll cost a fortune...

If it does cost a fortune & you end up buying a new one, you could plug a noraml monitor into the broken one & make it a normal pc. Then you won't lose any of your data etc

BG, did just that for almost 2 years with my old inspiron 4000. connected it to a 17" FP external Monitor. Made a good desktop actually. Until I got my Insprion 9300 a couple months ago. :mrgreen:

Heya the 9300! Kicks a lot of ass. Happy I got it for I'm staring at it ~16 hours a day (save to eat, sleep and gym)...

To the OP, such a smashing incident to the laptop has definitely rendered half the hard disk's half-life...will be prudent to backup your data more vigorously from now on.

I have heard that you might get cheaper LCD screen replacements at Sim Lim? Somewhere on this forum someone mentioned S$300?

There's a used notebook shop on the 3rd floor of the shopping centre Penninsula Plaza. If your Notebook is a couple years old you may be able to find the parts there. I found a replacement fan for my inspiron earlier this year. They carry tons of used notebooks/parts.

Okay, found the link: http://www.pchub.com/uph/
