There is nothing more frustrating than a broken laptop screen. Whether you have dropped your laptop or stepped on it,once the screen is cracked it has to be replaced. Having the screen repaired may cost you almost as much as a new laptop. Purchasing a new screen from the manufacturer can also be expensive. Taking the time to look online at computer message boards or resellers can help you to find a reasonably priced screen. By following a few easy steps, you can replace your cracked screen and have a functioning laptop in an afternoon.

Determine what model laptop screen will fit your laptop. Ordering a screen directly from the manufacturer can be almost as expensive as buying a new laptop. Look at online computer message boards, auction sites and retailers to find less expensive options. Disconnect any power source, including the battery pack, from your laptop before you begin. Locate and remove the four to six screws that hold the bezel, or plastic frame cover, in place. The screws sometimes have small plastic or rubber covers over them. Pull the plastic bezel away from the screen cautiously, working around the edge. Some bezels snap in and out of place. A small flat-head screwdriver may be helpful in prying the edge of the bezel away from the screen. Pull the screen forward gently. You will find two main wires behind it. The ribbon-like wire, or video cable, is usually taped in place. Remove the tape and disconnect the video cable from your broken screen. Remove the broken screen from its metal frame. Connect the new screen to the video cable and pop it into the metal frame. Replace the tape, plastic frame and screws. Power up your computer and test your new screen. Hope this helps.

Broke the screen on my cob kyros can i get it fixed?


A broken screen isn't something which can be repaired with a software upgrade. There are two types of broken screens. An internally broken screen is where the image on the screen looks cracked, even though there is no physical signs of abuse. It will turn on but you'll see all these funny colors come onto the screen. An externally broken screen is basically if you took that laptop and dropped it onto something hard. You wouldn't get an image, you'd just hear some noise from the power supply.
Your best bet if you have a broken screen is to take it to a service technician to see what a screen replacement will cost. If the laptop still works you can also plug an external monitor into it. This won't let you use it so easily on the go, but at least you'll be able to use it at home.
Hope that helps.

You can either replace the screen or you can work on your laptop with a broken screen. Replacing the laptop screen is quite costly depending on your laptop model and availability of your parts.

Connect broken laptop screen to external monitor


Suggestion- on my toshiba fn-f5 switches display modes, but to remove display connectors, you may have messed up your keyboard ribbon cable connection. it probably has a small sliding lock to hold it in place- if the lock isn't tight, your keyboard may not be recognized, which could mess up your display. Also, make sure your battery is charged and/or your power supply to your laptop is connected. hope this helps!

LCD PROBLEM


if you can get hold of a second Dell Lappy (same model) which is broken (not broken screen) you can swap the broken screen for the good one. It means opening the laptop, but due to the smashed screen the warranty is invalid anyway. There is usually 1 or 2 cables coming from the screen 1 for signal and 1 for power. you can explore the broken lappy to see how the screen connects,
