Damaged T60 screen
Been a real wally tonight and accidentally applied too much pressure to my Thinkpad T60 (yep, you guessed it, I trod on it!). So,
Is it possible for a novice to fit a new one? If yes, can you recommend a decent supplier? If no, can you recommend somewhere that will do the job for me?
A seriously pi**ed off James.

Sorry to hear about your little accident let's get you sorted!
You can get a screen of eBay: FOR IBM LENOVO THINKPAD T60P 15.4" LAPTOP LCD SCREEN on eBay (end time 11-Mar-11 11:16:17 GMT)

I hope that helps,
P.S. you may be able to get screen's a bit cheaper, there are some others on eBay second hand from broken laptops.

Or you could speak to the lovely John Graham of ICT direct who sells many a T60 and may well be able to get you a screen

They are easy to change. Best way is to get a whole new lid and then it's a 5 minute job...otherwise it will take about 30 minutes because of the faffing about with bits of plastic and fiddly little screws. We have had to 'fix' several X60 screens
ICT Direct or Fleabay are your friends for the parts.
