    Laptop Repairs

    Can anyone recommend a good company to replace a broken screen on a laptop? Ideally one which won't charge me a fortune in diagnostics, in case it doesn't turn out to be worth doing on a laptop which is already ageing a little.

    Not something you'd think about doing yourself? It's easy when you take it slowly (unless it's on an Apple Failbook) and the screens rarely cost more than 50 (amazon, ebay) unless its a whopper or silly high resolution.

    I could do it myself, but I know they can be quite fiddly and I know a number of people who have broken their laptops in the process of trying to replace screens. I'd rather pay someone 100 to do it than spend 50 plus several hours and risk further damage.

    It's very easy to do, and the screens are available from Laptop Screens | Laptop Screen | Laptop LCD Screens | Replacement Laptop Screens | Broken Laptop Screen - Home cheep!

    make sure the battery is out and the system discharged.

    takes us about 10 minutes tops on most of our laptops but we do get a lot of them through the door..
