Nice blue screen

Hello and thank you in advance. My son unfortunately thought the A35 was made of rubber, dropped it and yes the expected occured. Nice IBM blue since the screen is obviously broken. Are these expensive components to replace and if so, do you reccomend simply chalking this up to experince and purchasing a new notebook?

Thanks much,
Steve

The actual cost of a varies on where you get it. But you have to be careful as not all LCD Screens are the same geometrical shape, so your best bet, if you want to replace the LCD itself, is to get a new screen direct from Toshiba. The physical process of replacing the screen may cause a headache as well, so the decision is deffinelty yours to make. Toshiba will not sell parts directly, they are going through a 3rd party vendor for parts, and what I can tell from thier site is that a new screen will probably run upwards of $300. A service center might be cheaper, but you'd have to price shop on that.

Hope this helps!

It can cost minimum $400.00 to $800.00 to repair and when you can purchase a laptop from Staples or Fry's, etc. for as little as $395.00 on sale it seems hardly worth it. The new computers are better and have many more features to choose from. Toss it and get a new one.

Unfortunately yes most likely the GPU is toast at this point. Sounds to me like it overheated. The XFX HD5770 isn't that great of a video card to begin with.

My son has dropped his SP-500UZ which he really likes. The screen now shows white background with a number of blue & black "cracks/flashes" all pointing to a particular point. Presumably...


Repairs usually average about $200. Actually, most of the time these are not repairs but replacements with factory-refurbished cameras that gave someone else problems. There's no guarantee these problems won't crop up again. Your decision.

My son dropped his psp on the floor!!!


Yes this can be fixed... it sounds as though the LCD screen [the screen on the inside] has become damaged with the fall. The following website sells the LCDs and does replacements. The cost depends on the model of the PSP that you own. You can find the model number of your PSP on a label inside the back of the PSP if you remove the battery. Check them out:

You can't buy from any where in Australia. It is only can get form faulty motherboard and re-put to your motherboard, otherwise you have to changed whole motherboard.

It is laptop not desktop, every parts all have been solder on the one PCB board, which all on one board.

It just shows a blank white screen when I turn it on


Hi beans88

This is unfortunately a faulty Mainboard that will either have to be repaired or replaced.

The Part Number of this board is : 55.J8601.001 and if you decide to rather replace than repair it , you could expect to pay in the region of $125 for this part.

Thanks for using Fixya and good luck.
