Hi was wondering if anyone has any advice regarding a broken screen on my daughters laptop. Is it going to be very expensive and where is the best place to take it if it can be repaired.

If you can supply us the make and model we can try and show you how to do it yourself.
If your not that confident, then birkenhead market has several outlets.

Your laptop may be expensive, but the screen is nothing special after the wrapping comes off. (normally).

There maybe others, this showed up on ebay.
You need to check all the details before you order.

This may not be your model but the principle is the same, so you can see if your confident enough.

it can be cheap to replace, it could be expensive. It depends essentially on the screen and your confidence in doing it yourself.

I broke the screen on my 17.3" HP (DV7 3112sa) Laptop and a replacement screen from eBay was 45 with free P&P. I fitted it myself in about 5 minutes.

My girlfriend broke her 13.3" ASUS (UX303L) laptop screen a few months back and a replacement from ebay was 90 with free postage... I ordered it and fitted it and it still didn't work, reset BIOS & still nothing, my computer engineer mate also did all he could and it didn't work so i sent the screen back and got a refund and got in touch with ASUS who wanted 205 to fix the problem (undiagnosed by them, i just said the screen was broke) and a local computer shop (propergeeks on Leasowe Road) wanted 170 and also said the motherboard was goosed and it had video card issues, which i know was a lie because if the laptop was plugged into our tv through HDMI it worked perfectly, same through a VGA monitor... we ended up actually just selling that laptop as parts (got a couple of hundred quid for it on the 'Bay) and buying another brand new working laptop as she's a freelance journo and needs a working screen and we/she couldn't deal with having to send it away or whatever.

so while underneath everything, as Mark says, they're all essentially the same, some are more difficult than others to fix so one option would be spend a little more and just get a brand new laptop [you can buy the ASUS X551CA for 175 with free P&P from HERE (<- clickable link)

Propergeeks on Leasowe Rd was where they wanted to charge me 70 odd for data transfer and then tried to say that I didn't leave my charger with them when I insisted on it back. They should be avoided at all costs.

That laptop is so slow you'll throw it out of the window in frustration after a few minutes. Not a good buy.
