Well an average price for an lcd approx $300.00 plus install unless you do on own but depending on the model and serial # would need to know the exact lcd part # to make sure.

Replacing cracked laptop screen


The side rails are the hinges, in some cases you most remove or loosen the screws that attach the hinges at the bottom where the hinges attach to the lid. Once this is accomplished, the hinge supports will allow access to the sides of the screen in order to remove the lcd panel. Once the panel is released from its side attachments, the data cable can be pulled free from the back of the panel.

No picture


Hit F2 to brighten the screen. No picture could be any one of these things you need to buy.

1. New inverter board
2. New LCD backlight
3. New power board/sound board
4. New Logic board

If the parts and repair labor becomes cost prohibitive, then look into a new laptop, unless your handy and can replace the parts yourself.

My screen stays black when i turn my computer on, its a mac laptop and everything sounds like its running fine, the screen just wont come on.


Try hooking it up to an external monitor. If does work on the monitor you know you have to replace the screen. I don't see a model of what type of mac laptop you have, but most parts are pretty easy to replace and cheap to buy on auction sites.

Trouble with screen (powerbook G4 15" 1.67 GHz)


Well the issue isn't with the graphic card. It actually is the screen of the PB (PowerBook). I had somewhat of the same issue about 6 months ago on my 17" PB G4. But when it started to do that with mine, the screen would also make sharp vertical lines when opening and/or adjusting angle. So before my Apple Care warranty expired I had the screen fixed FREE. So, if you do have your Apple Care warranty still and not expired, I'd suggest to you to find a Apple Certified computer shop or the nearest Apple store and drop it off with the explanation to have the screen replaced. Otherwise you will have to pay a pretty penny.

And if you do not have the warranty then i suggest you not to take it to a Apple store due to the extreme cost of a new screen on an old machine. Instead goto ifixit.com. This site is great for anyone who has anything portable from Apple (including the non-portable MAC-mini) for replacement or upgrade parts, cheaper and also helps with the install (DIY instructions and pictures to go with it)

Hi there
One of the easiest questions I've had to answer.

From what you say you do not need a high end spec.
A 13in macbook should suite you fine. In terms of cost it is the cheaper mac. The screen size can be a hassle but all you need to do is buy a separate monitor to complement the 13in screen. So when you are at you desk you run dual monitors and when you present you use the macbook.

I'd just recommend to upgrade the ram and hard drive. Presentations such as powerpoint are memory hungry.

Video card


to replace the video card you would have to replace the motherboard it is built into it.before doing so try removing all the ram chips on the underside in a compartment w/4 screws match the ram accordingly(go to best buy or even ebay)
its pc2700 ddr ram and probably pretty cheap right now just buy one stick if that fixes your problem its cheaper than spending 500 or 600 on a board replacement.
