If you are experiencing a broken screen on your laptop, don’t worry! There are many options for replacing the screen. If it is still under warranty, you should contact the manufacturer first to see if they can repair it or replace it for free. However, if the warranty has expired or you have decided that buying a new laptop is more cost-effective than paying for repairs on an old one, there are plenty of places where you can get a replacement screen at affordable prices. With so many options available these days, there’s no reason to settle with just any kind of screen when getting your computer fixed up again.
There are a number of places where you can get a replacement screen for your broken laptop.
The first option is to buy from the manufacturer of the computer, as they should work with you if the warranty has expired.
Second, there are several online retailers who sell these parts at incredibly affordable prices. Companies such as iFixit and LaptopScreen offer quality rates that beat those found in brick-and-mortar stores.
A third option is through local repair shops, but this may be difficult or expensive depending on where you live and how reputable the shop is. Because it would require deconstructing your entire computer just to replace its screen, it will likely be more expensive than simply ordering a new one online.
there are independent parts distributors who sell individual replacement screen for laptops. These may be slightly cheaper, but if you are not technically savvy this is likely to be a bad idea. For example, buying from eBay and other auction sites like it should be avoided because the quality of screens sold there varies widely and may not fit your laptop properly.
Once you have your new screen, you’ll want to decide how to go about installing it. If you bought a new screen directly from the manufacturer and still have all the packaging materials that came with it, then this will be an easy task: just follow their instructions! Don’t worry if your old screen broke before unboxing; most manufacturers ship external screens in padded envelopes or bubble wrap so they won’t break during shipping. If you bought a screen from another retailer, then the process may be a bit more difficult. This is because most of these stores do not have complete installation guides available on their websites. Instead, they have generic ones made for all laptops and models rather than just one specific kind. Still, it should not be too hard to figure out how to replace your screen if you follow those generic instructions carefully.
Many laptop manufacturers prefer using as few screws as possible to hold together different parts of their computer because it makes repairs easier and cheaper in general; however this is not great for consumers. This is because computers with many screws are generally easier to repair than those that have few. If you want to save time and money, buy a laptop that uses as many screws as possible; this way you’ll only need to remove the ones holding the screen in place before replacing it with a new one. Before beginning, make sure there aren’t any small pieces of rubber or metal left behind from your old screen. Check every inch of the frame around its edges, including all along the top border where some laptops have status lights located underneath their screens.
Once you have found which method works best for you—either DIY or purchase parts directly from manufacturer—you can begin replacing your screen. The first step you should take is fully disassembling your laptop. This means removing its battery, the hard drive, all of its internal components (RAM, CPU, etc.), and cables that connect these parts to one another. Once you’ve got it taken apart like this, place the pieces close together but not touching where the screen once was; this will allow you to easily see how they are attached to it for when you reassemble everything again later. Now compare your old screen with a new one to make sure that they match exactly in size and shape before moving forward with installation.
Next, take the screws from your broken screen and screw them into a piece of wood or something very sturdy that can hold up both screens at a angle to each other while you solder them together. The point of doing this is to make it much easier for you to solder the wires connecting your screen’s backlight bulb because they will now be much closer together than they were previously, and it will also give you something stable to hold up both screens while doing so.
If possible, use a camera or a video recorder while reassembling your laptop in order to document each step that you did after taking things apart. This way if anything goes wrong later on or if your computer begins behaving strangely, you’ll have references from which to make corrections. It can even be helpful when working from manuals with poor illustrations; using video recordings may help clarify things for you more easily.
