Dell Inspiron 1545 Broken Screen?

Last night I left my Dell Inspiron 1545 screen on my bed and went to sleep. When I woke up the next morning, the screen seems to have broken. There are a couple of black patches on the screen and a long diagonal line running from the top right corner to the bottom left corner.

Here's a picture:

What is the exact problem and any idea how much it will cost to get it fixed?

The LCD is definitely shattered, looks like pressure was applied from the back of the screen (Pressed on, laid on etc) and the LCD will need to be replaced.
Several are available on Ebay

M15x gaming laptop screen wont come on after sleep mode or reboot. What can I do?


Looking at your last comment, it looks like you got it working??? Just an heads up, in the future, you might not want to put your laptop into sleep/standy mode while performing an update. If you lose power or have to do a hard shutdown you could corrupt the update and your PC might not boot back up.

3 inches of black on both sides of my monitor


I have seen this when using HDMI cables from the computer side.. The TV has a resolution that is not always full screen with TV shows. There is a setting that allows you to "zoom". My TV has 4 settings: normal, stretch and crop, stretch left and right, stretch and pinch (shrug).
