Question about Gateway M275 Tablet PC

1 Answer

How do I fix the top layer of glass on the screen?

I accidentally stepped on the laptop a while ago, but only broke the top layer of glass. You can still see everything on the screen, but when I try to use the pen the crack is hard to go over.

The lcd would have to be replaced the glass is part of that. On a normal laptop thats about $150 and up. On yours you will pay more as it includes the digitizer for the pen etc. Figure about $170 and up for used parts. You will probably have to get someone to swap the parts for you so figure on an hours labour (should be less). If you talk to gateway they will smile , call it user abuse, and then ask you to empty your wallet.

The parts can be located by searching for Gateway M275 Tablet Parts using google or bing or any search engine. You should find several sources so you can shop around and get the best deal as far as price and shipping. You are going to have to find a tech to replace it unless you can do it yourself. It really isn;t that hard and involves about 4 screws. The hardest part (seriously) is getting the case split. When your are looking for the parts keep an eye out for instructions. A lot of the parts places will have instructions or videos of how to do the job.

My screen glass broke but the screen was still readable. After replacing the glass all I get is three shades of white foment white to gray.


if you did the glass change your self go back and double check the cable for the screen. You probably left the connection half in.

if you have some one else doing it for you just take back and tell them of your issue.

How do you repair a cracked screen?


I don't own one, but I'm guessing it has a glass-like layer over an LCD display. The first step would be to figure out if it is the glass that is cracked, which I'm assuming is the case, or if the LCD is what is broken. In either case you will need to find a replacement part. I've had good luck using http://froogle.google.com or eBay to find similar replacement parts. Just search for your devices model number plus screen. After you have the part you need it should be a simple disassemble, replace, reassemble procedure. Hope this helps.
