Macbook screen messed up

Hi,

I have a macbook and during a party last night - someone fell on it and the screen is messed up... i took it to the store and though am inside the 1 year warranty - i was told i need to pay for it and it would cost 600 bucks.. that is ridiculous man... i am student and i already paid 1200 for the computer.. my friends bought dell and one of them had their screen changed for free through customer support.. why wouldnt apple do it and even if i had to pay for it in the worst case - why is it 600 bucks?... i def cannot afford that :(
God am so sad...
Can some one suggest any alternate solutions that are cheaper..

Hi there
Yep, I understand your concern.

The cheapest and quickest way is to get an external monitor.
You can pick up flat LCDs very cheaply these days. Even second hand ones on ebay.

The only down side is you cannot use the mac on the move.

I for instance have a monitor at work and at home. I just plug my mac into the monitor where ever I am.

The new monitors come with digital cables.

Good luck

You might not have lost everything. It is possible that only the user interface and operating system is affected but not the actual data on the hard drive. If you find a store that can remove the hard drive, you might be able to upload the data from the Hard drive to another working computer. Unless you know someone with a background in computers, this is not an easy thing to google and fix yourself. However, Best Buy, the Apple store, or any other computer repair shop should be better able to pinpoint the cause of the problem which will help us on fixya give you a better solution.

Hi, this can come form a lot of things, harware or software related. Software related: The easiest solution would be to backup your data and do a "clean install". hardware related: the easiest solution is to test your hard drive using the disk utility, and repair it if needed. If you have added extra memory, take it out to be sure that they are not the cause.

Macbook Screen Error


Does it only show up when the computer is on? There were a few reports of several MacBooks having video card issues that caused this problem. Take it to an Apple store and have a Mac Genius look at it to confirm.
