Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook

Dropped my laptop- screen cracked

I have a dell inspiron 1525, and i tripped and dropped it yesterday and the screen cracked. The top half of the screen is fully functional, but the bottom you cant even see. Would it be cheaper to buy a whole new computer or buy a screen and replace it?

On a dell 1525 the replacement is pretty easy, definitely costs much less than replacements of the manufacturer if you can do it yourself, there are laptop repair guides websites that guide you through the repair step by step, but you should have done something like this before, there are also third party laptop repair places that can do it for you.

    You'll have to replace the LCD panel. The part is available on
    ebay just search by your exact model number. Here's a
    guide on how to disassemble a Dell Lapop. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there are third party Dell Repair Services.

As you can see, it's $110 buying a new screen. So I think that would be the cheapest option.

Here is a guide to how you can change the screen http://computershopper.com/laptops/howto/replace-your-laptop-screen

I would recommend locating a local computer repair shop that doesn't have a well known name around your town.

They tend to keep many extra parts of laptops lying around and it's as simple as finding a match and replacing the LCD panel.

The smaller shops may have better deals than the larger, but it might be smart to contact Dell as well on the same matter.

My DELL inspiron 1525 was dropped and the LCD was broken. Please let me know where to buy or order the DELL LCD.


You can buy one here http://www.laptopscreenonline.com/dell-inspiron-1525-replacement-screen-laptop-lcd-1239-p.asp for £73.

You can install a generic screen and pick one up on ebay for around £60 but there is known difficulties with switching to a non-dell screen (Issues with brightness) so it is always best to stick to genuine Dell screens.

Hope this helps

Your laptop was dropped and the LCD backlight is what is lighting your screen. You need a replacement LCD screen.

Hinges and top cracked on my Dell Inspiron 1525


unlikely that its still under warranty, but you can check the warranty status at support.dell.com
you may also find parts lists on their website. The plastic bezels on laptops aren't very hard to replace.
