Anyone now or have experience with a broken laptop monitor... My on my dell Vostro 1000 broke. Is it cheaper to buy a new laptop? Cheaper to send to Dell? DIY Monitor Replacement? Thanks for the help.

Its really gonna depend on the type of monitor, for example LED backlit or the traditional flourecent backlighting, and it will depend on what you mean by broken.

Not cracked but monitor displays colored lines and white to one side and you can see a "dent-like" mark on the border of the part of the monitor that does not work (Some of the monitor works). I know that I'll probably not be able to use that one and will need to get a new one. Anyone know were to get replacement laptop monitors? It is wide screen 15.4" and resolution of 1280x800

Yes I tried google but had no luck all I found was info on desktops and new monitors, so I was hoping someone here could post or give some info to help me get in the right direction.

I searched and found a guide on pcmag on how to replace a screen and then found a seller that was selling of 295$. But saw in the comments a cheaper on for 178$ and I also searched on ebay for one with a buy it now price of 59.99. Links below

Ebay has cheaper ones (then 300$ one)

Tips

Find the monitor for your laptop at http://www.screentekinc.com/

THEN Search Google for the model i.e Dell Vostro 1000 15.4" WXGA (Matte) LCD Screens was for me

Check out ebay and craigslist

Buying ON Ebay sense they are a lot cheaper it could be a scam (after all almost 250$ cheaper) so if I buy on ebay I'll make sure to use PayPal for security's sake... So hopefully this makes it easier if this unfortunate thing ever happens to someone.

Thoughts as I look back before it broke...

Seeing the prices, if I knew before hand how expensive this could be I would be a lot more careful! (Not that I was using it as a football). Also it broke by falling from a coach on accident (about 1ft.) and it didn't even hit the monitor part so these are very weak... (though it has survived worse falls). So to rap it up I hope this will help others and warn others to the expense....

NOTE:

I have not baught the monitor yet (LCD not sure if it could be considered a monitor) so this is just preliminaries. I will hopefully post results.

If your laptop LCD gets damaged I hope this helps because I was extremely worried first if I could replace it then when I saw the 300$ one the expense sent me into a little shock. You can do this I thought at first it was going to be a big expensive sen to Dell sort of thing hopefully i won't be... LESSON: You don't want this to happen to you that is for sure and if it does don't get to worried about it... Enjoy! :) :) ;)

Ok I finally ordered from ebay and its arrived... I have not had the time to install it yet but for anyone who wishes to know, I ordered it from expresslcdscreens08 http://myworld.ebay.com/expresslcdscreens08/ and it shipped fine in about 3 days. There were a couple bad reviews but most of them were good (about a 98% satisfaction rating). So I re-update this once install just in case anyone had this unfortunate thing happen to them

My mates website :) he's just started doing laptop repairs as we had some old ones at work he took apart to fix. He started buying them off ebay and repairing them.

However, we're based in England so bit pointless me saying this really :)

Been a week and the screen installation is fine! Sense the screen is glossy though, their is a little more glare but nothing too bad. The install was pretty easy and the only hitch was that we didn't have the correct screw driver so we had to go get it. Hope this helps anyone else.
