    Is it a better idea just to get another computer? I didn't have anything vital on this one and the phones interfere with its internet signal.

    We got it for free because the last Acer we bought had a problem with the mother board, and they thought it was the hard drive, and they would wipe the hard drive and it wouldn't work, then we send it back, etc. After enough times, they sent us this one. Got it for Christmas about a year and a half ago.

    Can't imagine if its video driver or lcd related. Might be a problem with the LCD but I was wondering if you could maybe take a picture of it for me to see so I exactly know what your talking about.

Oh okay. Your screen is physically cracked. Its broken, its going to need to be replaced. Thats why a part of the screen is coming and then you see splotches on the screen. Looks like somebody hit directly with something or stepped on it. If you turn the laptop off and shine a light on it, you might be able to see where the crack originated.

In the meantime until you get another lcd screen, you can hook up an external monitor to the laptop and use it like that for now.

    Screen's can run anywhere from $150.00 and up and if you don't know how to replace them yourself then a repair shop would have to do it and then there would be labor costs on top of the cost of the screen.

    It all depends on what you paid for the laptop honestly and the age of it.

    Rate me please when you get the chance but in the meantime let me know what you paid for the laptop and I can give you a better answer about whether to replace the lcd or get a new one.

My acer aspire notebook is only showing the bottom half of the screen, the top half is white

Grab your screen...right hand on top left hand on bottom. Apply opposite force and attempt to twist screen. If it corrects itself, gets better, gets worse etc...screen is getting ready to be totally shot. Been working on this LCD now for 6 months, just have to twist it here and there to get it to stop turning white. If it does nothing, it's shot. You have to get replacement screen. They are inexpensive and relatively easy to replace.

Hi! im looking for parts for a acer aspire 5335-2238 like the two half's(bottom & top)and the back bezel of the LCD.

I would suggest looking on Ebay.

1.Computers and Networking>PC Components>For Laptops and Notebooks>Acer Aspire 5300 series

[For the LCD bezel. That's the frame that goes around the LCD screen, in the front. The cover on the back of the LCD screen, is the Top Cover. The cover where the keypad is at, and the touchpad, is the Palm Rest]

2.Computers and Networking>PC Components>For Laptops and Notebooks>Laptops and Notebooks For Repair>Acer

Perhaps see if you can find a laptop for parts, that may have all the items you listed.
