Cool guide, too bad my extended warranty makes it redundant
Thanks, but does that protect against you dropping.. or breaking your laptop?
I hope this guide will benefit some of you.
Well done. You make it look really easy. I always thought this procedure was difficult, which always turned me off from buying laptops with cracked LCDs. From start to finish, how long did it take to replace the screen?
I thought the same thing, its really simple.
I'd say it took me about 30-45 minutes tops. It may take less time, just depends on how many of those small screws you loose.
I'd like to bump this thread for anyone who may need it...
lets get our blog popular!
Also, if there is something i could change to make it easier, let me know. Laptop is still going strong by the way.
for the hell of it, you should write a really simple guide to fix stuck pixels. That way we can refer newcomers to the techzine version whenevr they come up with stuck pixel stuff.
Ill be honest, i have tried almost every method out there to get stuck pixels out of LCD TV's, and monitors. I can rarely get them to ever work. Once in a while i can get them out by using the rubbing method. Maybe I've been unlucky though.
But, I'll definitely look into making one. Because its always best to atleast try, you'll never know until then. It definitely won't hurt anything. Because it does work, on occasion.
there's the disclaimer right there!
Whatever to increase traffic to tz.
i put new hinges on my hp dv4000, which is just a couple steps away from putting in a new screen, and it only took bout an hour, and was easy. just keep track of all screws.
Thats what i need on this one too, haven't found them cheap enough to fool with yet. Though, its not that bad. Just a little bit of play.
wow that looks like it was really easy. where do people find cheap laptops with broken lcd's? seem like a good way to get a cheap laptop which im looking for
Check craigslist, and for sale sections on forums.
I got mine at TechPowerUp forums, from a member.
lmao that is weird, i found that guide from google couple days before i joined the forum to find out how to replace the screen on my sisters laptop
The world is smaller than you think, even the world wide web
I can imagine replacing the LCD would be a nightmare to do, your probably better off getting a new laptop D:
Haha, thats cool. Did it help?
Its not hard...
I had one of my friends tell me this:
"Whoa...your like everywhere.." and send a link to a response i made here about coil whine(They were googling 8800gt coil whine or something like that). I thought it was funny>_<
unfortunately no, if i had changed the screen it certainly would have, but she decided to live wth it and instead get a new system, i'm building her a desktop in september/october
That will turn out better then, a new system is always good.
