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!

depending on what model you have exactly
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.
