    looking for help with broken laptop screen

    got a acer aspire 3053wxci laptop here with a broken screen.

    just wondering does anyone know were to get a spare screen for it.

    also is it pretty easy to change a screen

    if you have house contents insurance claim on that
    otherwise it's going to more than likely be cheaper to sell it and buy another laptop
    replacing laptop screens is often extremely expensive and will more than likely have to go back to the manufacturer although some repair shops will replace them for you
    however your more than likely looking at £200 plus repair bill

    Oh I wouldnt try and do it yourself, there are some extremely hazardous voltages inside the screen

    It is a pain, but it isnt dangerous or difficult. The tricky part is finding the replacement screen. Your best bet is Ebay really, look for a same model laptop that has another fault.

    Replacing the screen is simple case of opening the casing (pain in the ass) then simply disconnecting the cable and un-screwing the screen from it's housing. I have done it successfully a couple of times.

    There isnt any hazardous volatge inside a TFT screen, there is in old computer monitors (CRT), but not with your laptop thats for sure.

    Here's a basic guide for replacing the screen, but it is not gonna be 100% accurate as it is a different make and model of laptop.

    Just one question. Are you 100% sure it is the screen that's gone? or could it be the inverter or even a split cable.

    I had the same problem with my acer which was only 3months old,Idid not even drop it.Acer said this problem with the screen was not under warranty.So house insurance it was £100 excess.new computer within days after another couple of months another prob with my new computer(acer again) ring people I got new computer again within few days(not Acer whoopee) been great.:thumbsup:

    You could buy a new Laptop with higher specs than your existing one for only maybe £100 more than the price of an replacement screen.

    My advice would be to get hold of an old PC monitor connect it to your laptop and begin backing stuff up. Once that is done erase all data (must be properly erased to leave no personal data) then sell it on ebay for spares. Take the money you got for the broken Laptop then combine it with what you would have to pay for repair and get something like ]this from Comet or ]this from LaptopsDirect.

    LaptopsDirect do some pretty decent ones for £300 (as far as what £300 can get you) and they are where I bought my laptop so can be trusted. They also have 2% cashback via Quidco.

    I replaced my laptop screen (Compaq) a few weeks ago). Very easy to do. Most of the time it is simply removing the hidges and a few other screws. Then everything is simple. As above, eBay is your best bet otherwise it might not be worth doing.
