    Is there anywhere you can get a cheap laptop replacement screen and charger apart from Ebay?

    My neighbour asked me to look at a laptop he got off his friends girlfriend for £10 as it was broken, the inner screen has had a large impact to it and has leaked though works but wobbles but works fine connected to external monitor.

    Had to spend about 2 hours doing a startup repair too.

    Was wondering where to get a cheap replacement screen(will find type later) its a Emachines D620 and a charger since he is currently using his charger from his other laptop which has a different connector so is very dodgy.

    ebay is the cheapest. i've checked.

    Always used EBAY for screens and AC Adapters in fact my laptop is currently using an OEM ac adapter at the moment.

    When I read stuff like this I always think "smashed a car window to grab it off the back seat and dropped the brick onto it"

    Why is there no charger?

    A sure sign of something being stolen is having no charger to it. I cant think of a good reason why something would have no cahrger.

    place in trafford park near the trafford centre manchester advertised on ebay.u can sent the laptop or take it to them and they do it while u wait...very reliable..cheap

    emachines like advents and other dsg laptops have the worst quality chargers, rarely last 6 months.

    Yes but for the charger to fail at the same time as the screen gets broken?



    Common sense and common knowledge, look at ebay for used sat navs and see how many have no charger or accessories!

    Lets see

    1 They could have just lost it people do misplace things it could have been left in a costa at some time or at another location. People do move around with laptops it is quite common

    2 It could have gone faulty i know that is a shocking statement to make b ut i have experienced that myself recently and has a temporary meassure myself had to use a different adapter till i obtained the correct one.

    3 It could have been swapped by mistake they do happen when putting it away he may have just picked up another laptop

    I've got loads of things in my house without chargers - all bought and paid for direct from a retailer I might add! None of my 3 sat navs have the charger they came with, but considering its a usb connection, its not an issue I'm bothered about........ But I'm boogered if I can find the power adapter for the massage chair!

    Who said the charger failed at the same time he may have been using this other one for months and may infact still have the faulty charger did you you ask this in your line of questioning, not doing well Sherlock i think you need some better evidence than this

    Perhaps the person he bought it off just misplaced it or just didnt bring it with them when selling it to friend.

    Or maybe when it became faulty they just stored it in wardrobe for ages and now Christmas is passed they are short of cash etc.

    I did think myself there was a possibility that it may be stolen, but most of that went after I asked the person for the password to get into Windows and they knew it right away, if it was stolen they wouldnt really know password off top of head.
