Laptop Screen Img-2010

Yap so. It doesn't seem to be cracked on the outside, like the glass of the screen seems fine. Google makes it sound like the liquid crystals thing is cracked and that is spreading around the screen? Idk.

I'd just like to know if its fixable and how much it is likely to cost. The screen is a 17 inch on a Gateway NV79.

Your screen is fixable, but, its pretty expensive. If you know of anyone who works at a Geek Squad or anything remotely close to that they might know something. Most of those guys have experience replacing them.

However, if you can't find somebody you know, it may be quite expensive. The replacement screen itself is around 50-100 and then installation may run around 100 depending on where you go.

But atleast you know its fixable.

Cheers mate.

Alright, then I guess my next question would be where to get the replacement screen? Or could I just go to a store like bestbuy and get a package that includes the replacement screen and installation?

Bestbuy today said $450 :O I paid $1500 for it, but I'm not sure if its worth the $450 to repair it.

How about the parts of the laptop? Are those sellable or not really?

Stinger, I am sure you can find a local repair shop in TO for 1/2 the price at the minimum...

@Nad - Ill either post or msg you some of the specs of it. I know it has an i7 processor @ 2.47 GHz (or something), 8 gb of ram and like a TB hardrive though.

@Forty - Yeah I figured thatd be the case. I'll be taking it to a place where I got my 2 desktops hoping they give me a decent deal. If you know somewhere that gives absolute beast deals and is trustworthy lemme know.

@Warcat - YEAH A COUPLE TIMES. Also tried staring at it for an hour when I first found out expecting it to magically fix :3

I'd rather not go down that route. I'm not good with computer things and don't like the idea of buying off a potential random site (or any site for that matter).

I appreciate the help from everyone, in the end I think ill be getting it fixed for around $200 by a local computer repair shop. Thanks for all the help.

You dont have to buy them off a random site, go through the manufacturer to purchase the parts. The screen itself is extremely easy to repace. Worst case, buy the screen then have geeksquad install it. Would be a lot cheaper than 450~
