Damaged laptop screen - worth/easy to repair

  georgemac © 13:06 25 Mar 07

My niece has dropped her Acer 2410 laptop and broken the screen - the laptop still boots up OK on the bits of the screen that I can see.

It was not an expensive laptop, has a celeron processor. Any idea how much a replacement screen would cost, where to get one from and is it an easy repair.

I can easily build and repair desktops but have never attempted anything with a laptop.

Tried using the search function but got an error?

How old is it?

Back to Acer for repair is probably the best option along with an insurance claim.

Thanks for the excellent link, I have now removed the LCD screen.

It is a 15.4" screen, with a few different labels and part numbers on it. I will get a quote from the company above for a replacement screen, does anyone know of other options, i.e screens from broken laptops?

The insurance claim was not an option, and I don't want to spend a bomb repairing a cheap laptop, because it would probably just be better buying another cheap laptop.
