    Does anyone know a website I can buy a new screen for my son's laptop?

    The laptop still works......screen has spider crack at top. The laptop is just a year old and paid almost $1000 for it. I'm hoping someone can give my some helpful information. I would really hate to by a new laptop......really can't afford it right now.

    I would suggest eBay.  I have purchased laptop screens, keyboards, and other parts to keep my laptops going.  You can almost always find the screen you are looking for.  You should expect to pay less than $200.  Hope this helps.

    Ouch - that's the most expensive part of the computer. I replaced a LCD screen on a digital camera - the part was found on ebay.  Perhaps a computer 'scrap yard' online ? Be prepared to DIY on this one unless you have a buddy nerd who likes to take about these things and able to put them back together again.

    expect to have little "dings" on the plastic seams - those laptop are a chinese puzzle to take apart.


    OR avoid the whole thing and just put a monitor on the laptop ( connection in the back) - no longer portable but should automatically change resolution to the "second" monitor.

    Most modern laptops are automatically equipped to connect an external monitor

    You may as well invest in another laptop - One estimate I had on a Dell once was about $700 - more than a new laptop.  You can get a little netbook for about $250 or $300.

    This may or may not help you because the circumstances sound a little different...but for what it may be worth.  My grandson has a small notebook computer that the screen went out on.  He said it touched it....his dad thinks he probably touched to hard.  Anyway, I did a little research and found a replacement screen on Amazon.com for less than $60.00.  My son went on YouTube and found a tutorial video on how to replace the screen and made his son do it himself...partly so he could learn....and partly so he would know that you need to take care of his things.   Oh FYI, he had to go through several videos until he found one that was very specific with clear step by step directions.

    I do hope this helps, even a little.

    Never had to do this but I have got this link for you. Have a read it may help if not search a bit more on the web or go to a computor shop they may be able to help, and put you in the right direction.
    Like Duffsmom says it may be cheaper to buy a new one.
