If it's cracked, you could go to ebay and look for another one. But you have to make sure of the following:

-The model number has to match exactly
-Make sure you use a credit card that would allow you to charge back if you were ripped off or the seller decided to crate it with loose nails.
-Has a nice pic of the screen without scratches.

Be EXTRA careful with the ribbon cable going from the screen to the board. Avoid disconnecting from the board's end if at all possible.

If your lappy is still under any kind of warranty, toss Dell some coin and use their screen. Even at $219, laptops break often and you'd be thankful if fixing it was still free in the future.

How do i fix the screen on a dell inspiron 1501

the LCD Display has been cracked, there is no way to fix this without replacing the LCD display which in some cases is as expensive as a new laptop. I'd suggest taking it to a screen repair professional and getting a quote on a replacement screen and compare that with the price of a new laptop.

Can Dell Inspiron 2200 screen be replaced/repaired? How costly?

If the screen is cracked, that can range from $200 and up. If the screen is not cracked and the image is garbled or scramble, then the Price of repair would be at least as much. Laptops are expensive to repair. Bear in mind, They are mass produced, not mass repaired. In my opinion, your money might be better invested in a newer machine.

Dell inspiron 1501 dead, won't charge,


Use a volt meter and measure the output of you power adapter. It sounds like the cable is broken right about the end. The volt meter should read the same as is printed on the label on your ac adapter. If it reads correctly then the next thing to look for is the power plug in the laptop. Try to wiggle the center pin, if it moves very much at all then the connector may be broken. You can check with a local PC repair shop for a repair price for the jack replacement.

I hope this helps,

I have a red strip about a a wide all the way down the screen

It sounds as if your display is going bad. If put a little pressure on the screen and the red strip warps it is probably your liquid crystal display in the screen itself.
