hi everyone was wondering if anyone knows if the screens on these can be replaced and if so how much? my 7 year old has broken his somehow and even though it switches on the screen looks as though it is cracked and you have nothing on it apart from light! thanks in advance sharon.

yes you will need the exact model number,definitely check ebay before anywhere else as many people break laptops that have stopped working,

Or if you have household insurance, mabye a claim is in order!

I claimed for my daughters last year, just told them it slipped off her knee and landed on it`s corner, breaking it in two.......... although I had to pay the first £100 she now has a brand new £500 laptop.
They didn`t even look at the damage, just paid out! :-D

I've bought a screen from ebay before .A company from Ireland , Carrickfergus infact . It was for a Advent but they had others. I ordered it on a Thursday at 3.15 in the afternoon and it was delivered to the North East of England the very next day before 12 0/clock.Great service .It cost £99.99 all in .I fitted the screen myself , so that saved a few quid . Check ebay out .

i just checked the excess and its 50 so not bad, i was told when i renewed in november that because i am over 5 years i am on maximum discount and even if i do make a claim my premiums will no longer go up now because i have been claim free! so hopefully they keep their word or i will just move insurers! :-)

That's if you make 1 claim. Making 3 at once is going to hammer your premium next time whoever you are with. :thumbsup:
