You will be required to send him a detailed email with the laptop info (serial number, model number brand , year of manufacture etc). Tell him which part you require and he will be able to send it to you via courier within a short time :) Here is the email firstname.lastname@example.org he is very helpful for sourcing out hard to find laptop parts :)

There's no info in the manual. I hope I haven't brought a second hand dud, any ideas to start would be greatly appreciated. Steve...
Try e Bay, I've found several unique computer cables I needed there, including SATA & PATA cables that were too expensive locally.
I also used that same resource to stock up on extra cables for PC expansions & repairs. They take a while, but they are priced low. I've experienced very few issues with products purchased new from overseas.
I am so sorry to hear that! I've had to deal with a broken screen or two before myself. What you'll need to do is search for your computer model's screen. They usually run about $100. After that, you can either contact a professional to do the work for you, or you can do it yourself.
To do it yourself, you will need a Philips and flathead screwdriver. BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING, remove the battery and hold the power button down for 5 to 10 seconds. This will discharge any remaining power from the laptop, so you don't harm your computer. There should be four little pads in the corners of the screen case. Remove these, and unscrew the screws underneath. This is where you will need the flathead screwdriver. Gently pry the front of the case from the back. Once the case is opened, unscrew the housing of the LCD itself. There is a ribbon that connects the screen to the motherboard. Gently remove this. Now, just do everything in reverse, with the new screen. Put the ribbon in the new screen. Replace the housing and screw it back in. Then, replace the screen case and screw it back together. Put the little pads back on and replace the battery. Turn on your PC and marvel at your handy-work.
I had this problem about my touch screen same with you. The touch screen on left hand has stopped working. I had it for 20 months. I live in Thailand. I think that it is the big problem for ST550. I've brought it to Samsung Customer Center. and they've introduced me to change the new touch screen. It is about USD50.00. I am bored. I used it a little bit.
The ribbon doesn't advance at all? Try turning the ribbon by hand. If it is really hard to turn, or doesn't advance when you turn the knob (make sure you turn it in the direction of the arrow), then the ribbon is defective and you just need to get a good one.
If the ribbon turns easily, the leave the ribbon off, type and watch to see if the black knob on the left of the ribbon plate (the place where you put the ribbon), that turns the ribbon, is moving.
Also I have found that some brands of ribbons simply do not work on this machine. If the ribbon and the ribbon drive is working, try a different brand of ribbon.
