Broken Laptop Screen?

First of all, don’t panic. Replacing the whole unit is the last resort for any broken laptop part. Screens are no exception. Even a small screen crack probably looks pretty bad, and serious damage to the laptop screen looks like a complete disaster. Most people jump straight into buying a whole new laptop, thinking they have no choice. They might not even be able to get their data off the old one, which is a tragedy. All those family photos or essential documents lost forever, all because of faulty laptop parts.

We know new laptops are very expensive, and yours is probably full of gigabytes of music, pictures, movies, and programs that would take hours and hours to transfer and reinstall. You’ve got your laptop it just the way you want it, so changing computer would be a hassle as well as pricey.

But remember, what really drives your computer isn’t the screen. With a standard desktop computer, the monitor is entirely separate and you can chop and change a broken monitor easily. The laptop screen isn’t dissimilar. It’s connected, but the precious laptop parts that make the computer really function are underneath the keyboard.  The memory and motherboard are down there, and it’s entirely possible that they haven’t been at all affected by whatever caused the screen crack.

Often, we can either replace your laptop screen for you, or send you a compatible, unbranded replacement laptop part and a set of comprehensive instructions to do it yourself in your own home. Before you rush out and buy a new computer, talk to one of our technicians and see if your old one can be rescued.
