Need to replace a laptop screen

Q: Need to replace a laptop screen

So today my brother destroyed my dad's laptop's screen and I was blamed for his ridiculous anger problems

The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 14z Ultrabook.

I was wondering if anyone could recommend someplace or website to get a new screen because it has a crack in it and nothing will show up on it I would like to know if there are any risks or dangers of replacing it.

I know the laptop itself works just fine because I plugged it up to a different monitor and I was able to use it like normal.

If you need more information I am just fine with telling.

Thank you!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Is this at all possible? Pretty new at the whole DIY breaking computers open to fix them stuff but i'm learning quick haha.

Here is the toshiba and the screen:

Toshiba Satellite C55Dt-A5231 Laptop
Laptop LCD Screen for Toshiba Satellite C55DT A5231 15 6" WXGA HD | eBay

Here is the replacement screen for the Sony laptop(actually an LG screen):


What would I need to know in order to understand if this would work or not?

Also, here is the laptop w me holding up the screens:



A:Replace Toshiba laptop screen w Sony laptop screen? Same size. 15.6"

It's not the size of the display screen, these are all fairly identical. It is the connector socket and the rail screw positions that will bite you.

I suggest finding an exact replacement. If you can't find one on eBay then you certainly will at a store like this one:
LAPTOP SCREEN from $34.99, replacement LCD screens. Repair Tablet, Acer, Apple, iPhone, iPad, Samsung, Dell, HP Compaq, Toshiba, IBM Lenovo, Sony, Asus, Gateway.

I have an Acer Aspire AS3810TZ-4806 and have owned it for a good 4-5 years. I've had some LCD issues for a couple years now where the light flickers, have big black spots and FINALLY the screen gave out. it's almost completly dark now. You can faintly see images. After some research on replacement, a compatible Acer LCD on Ebay would run roughly $60. I've concluded that It's either the bulb inside (CCFL??) or the inverter that may have an issue, but I have no way of testing which is broken since I have no spare LCD screen to test or a little tester device.

What I've discovered was my lcd screen's model # was : B133XW01 V2 . After googling this model # and a search on Ebay, I've discovered a Dell Latitude 13 or a couple other Dell brands share this same model, the difference is it says " V1." Im assuming version 1 or something, and the one I have is V2. The connectors look the same. I feel like it might work. What do you think? Below are a couple Ebay links im looking at, Does that "H/W" code matter?
Any advice?



Thanks in advance!

Hi, I have a gateway solo 2500 laptop (12.1'' tft screen)

The thing stopped working 3 yrs ago. Power on, cd spins, hd spins, fan spins.. nothing after that. Wasn't about to pay gateway $400 to fix it. Recently figured it out.. I just needed to reseat the processor. Problem is that in the last 3 years somewhere the screen got cracked so bad that I can only see a small fraction of it, though external monitor is fine.

So I purchased another Gateway Solo 2500 with a 12.1'' tft screen and I want to swap the screens (the other one I bought is a 266mhz MMX processor whereas mine is a celeron 400) so how do I do that.

Has anyone done this? Are there any things I should watch out for, is it super simple or is this something to leave to the pros?

I'm great with desktops, not so experienced with laptops.

thanks... closetgeekla

A:How to replace laptop screen (Gateway 2500)

Are the cases identical ? If they are, then you need to start taking the unit apart until you get down to removing the Lid's hinges. There should be a cable that goes from the MOBO to the display. Unplug it and swap lids.

This is based on my experience disassembling my HP laptop to fix the connection cable, which was being pinched by the hinge.

Of course the other possibility is to swap the newer MOBO and drives into the other case's base unit.

I realize this is a very vague question with no definitive answer, but hope to get some info to make a decision.

Yesterday, my Vista 32 bit laptop monitor suddenly turned bright white. When I reboot, it goes immediately to white. However, when I lean the monitor forward to about a 30º angle, the screen becomes visible. I looked online and found that it was probably a loose video connection. My husband and I took it apart and disconnected everything in the monitor. We found several minute spots on the fine wires where we could see specks of silver. We used electrical tape and covered them and put everything back together. No change. I now have an external monitor hooked up to it, but that makes having a laptop rather useless.

My question is, am I looking at a very costly repair, or do I need to just replace the laptop. It was a cheap laptop Presario CQ50-209WM, but does everything I need which is mainly a little emailing and reading recipes. Nothing that requires much speed.

Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

Can I order a replacement laptop without a hard drive and drop my existing drive into it? I have a windows 10 Pavilion g6  product number A6Y43UA#ABA. Is it possible, and how much would it cost?

A:replace laptop

Hi,Few things:1. All consumer laptops in market come with an internal storage (HDD/SSD/eMMC).2. You can't transfer OEM Windows licence from one laptop to another machine. So in effect you cannot boot to previous Windows 10 in a new laptop taking out HDD from another machine.3. You can use G6 HDD as storage drive in new laptop if it support dual hard drive configuration and dimensions/form factor of HDD matches.RegardsVisruth

Good Evening All,

Right now I'm working with the very patient Kevin on alleviating my laptop of some Malware. Once my Dell Latitude D510 is operational, I'm going to pass along to one of my nephews who's off to college soon.

So, with what should I replace it? Here's some of the basics about me and my computing needs:

I'm an English professor at a community college. I'm tenure-track, meaning I teach at least five classes a semester (with 30 students each). I also sit on six different committees. So, I'm juggling a ton of MS Word documents.

I also have to utilize assorted education-based platforms like Blackboard, Banner, Smart Start, etc. So, I'm online all the time.

I'm not a gamer. But I stream a lot of movies. I'd like to get something as portable as a laptop but is replacing a laptop that replaced a desktop. I also require a large screen and keypad (I'm 6'2 and can grow easily sore from hunching over something that's too small).

Don't forget: I am an educator, so I ain't got a whole lot to spend. If I had the money, I'd not be typing this right now--I'd be at the nearest Apple Store, buying their biggest and coolest. But, drats, I can't afford to do that at this time.

I've had only wonderful experiences on this site, and would very much appreciate any and all suggestions.

Thank you!,

A:What Should I Buy to Replace My Laptop?

Based on all the various uses (ie: applications), screen requirement, and keyboard, I'd say get another laptop. Your only major requirement (for a laptop anyway) is the screen, so concentrate on getting a model with the largest screen in your price range. The specs don't really matter as the new hardware will be much faster than the old Dell.

Personally i would buy a Network Attached Storage (NAS) something like a WD cloud drive and do a clean install of the OS on the SSD

Hello. I've been trying to repair my mother's PC. She has a 2011 HP Pavillion g6 series PC. For over a month, every time she starts/restarts the computer, it is telling her she has Windows Updates to install and the PC needs to be restarted. Once in a while even when the laptop is closed, you hear the startup jingle on its own, which means, I assume, the PC restarted on its own I've been doing driver updates in addition to this, and it turns out on the HP website there was a problem with cords that have a label LS15. Surely enough, the cord for this laptop had that label, so I got a free replacement Upon doing other checks including a battery check, it turns out this battery is very poor (I was able to tell that when I unplugged it at 100%, went to 66% in about 5 minutes, restarted the PC once, restarted it AGain, and then it died) Anyway, I just went to HP's page and I cannot find any battery replacement for this model PC. I was however able to find it on another web page - http://www.laptopbatteryhq.com/hp-pavilion-g6-1a50us-laptop-battery.html?utm_source=bing&utm_medium=... Even if I replace the battery, I don't think that will solve the issue with Windows UPdates re-appearing What are all of your suggestions? Buy a new laptop (can' really afford that though at this time). Replace the battery? And any idea on how to fix this Microsoft problem? THank you all

A:New battery or replace laptop?

If she ever runs the laptop on battery alone by all means replace it. On the other hand if she always keeps the laptop plugged in there is really no need to replace it. You can even run a laptop with battery completely removed-though this can be a problem in the event the laptop is accidentally removed from power. Even a weak battery can give enough time to reinsert the power cord. As for the Windows Update issue, I have seen several posts recently about Windows 7 update problems and some express the opinion that it has happened since the free update to Windows 10 expired and may be part of the push to get everyone to move to 10.You might try the Windows Update troubleshooter at Microsoft to see if it offers any help.https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971058

I just ordered an Acer Aspire V 15 Nitro VN7-571G-50VG and it came with a 1TB HDD + 128GB SSD. I wanted to remove both drives and simply install a 500GB SSD instead. I cloned the contents of the 128GB SSD, which was the C: drive while the 1TB HDD was the D: drive, to the 500GB SSD using Macrium. When I began to disassemble the laptop, I could only find the 1TB HDD, it was below the keyboard and to the right, just like in other models that I found on YouTube. I removed that, and installed my 500GB SSD. I booted up my laptop to find that it still booted from the 128GB SSD. Since I couldn't find it, I thought to just leave it in there, and instead boot from the 500GB SSD by changing the boot order. I did so, and noted that the 128GB SSD was labeled "HDD0" and the 500GB SSD was labeled "HDD1". However, it still kept booting from the 128GB SSD! So, where can I find this 128GB SSD so I can take it out and put my 500GB SSD there? Or, how do I change it so that the laptop boots from the 500GB SSD instead? I can attach pictures of the laptop's interior if needed. Here is the order link:http://www.amazon.com/Acer-VN7-571G-50VG-Notebook-Computer-i5-5200U/dp/B01CL50JV6 Thank you!

Finally, will I be able to reboot the machine with my backup copy of XP Pro service pack 2? Thanks.

I have an old DELL latitude E6400 (keyboard issues) and... a new DELL latitude E6400, and two HDDs.

One HDD has WinXP, this hdd boots in both laptops. Another HDD is win7, it boots OK in the old laptop - but BSOD at boot if inside the new laptop.

How do I move a hard drive from one system to another? Any tricks?

0) so, both are same e6400 model, look exactly the same
1) have different CPUs (8400 vs 8700)
2) different RAM amount 2GB vs 4GB
3) I am aware of 'disk controller driver' trick, but win7 is using 'standard dual IDE controller, i have tried deleting it with no benefit
4) i have tried deleting CPU 'drive' from device manager - no benefit :

A:replace laptop keyboard

Welcome to TSG.

I've fixed the text in your post to the default size, you had made it gigantic for some reason.

I think you may have confused with another site. We don't have directions for changing keyboards in laptop unless you are referring to a specific thread where someone posted something in which case you need to provide a link to that thread for reference.

I did find a video for a similar model on YouTube that may help you get the keyboard off: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v03EpyGy_1s
He also removes several other parts but you can obviously skip those things.
And here's a link to the HP Maintenance guide: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=4308941&

I have a US Toshiba Satellite A505 laptop, which obviously has a US keyboard. I'm from the UK, and so am used to the UK keyboard layout, and just discovered that UK replacement keyboards are pretty cheap (not that I need to look at the keys as I type anyway, it would just be nice to have the proper keyboard).

Is it physically possible to change a US keyboard to a UK keyboard? The size of some keys are different (our Enter key is 2 lines high for example, and our Shift key's shorter). I'm not sure if the connectors underneath the keys are specific to the US layout or if the connectors underneath can apply to both a British and American keyboard layout? (or if the connectors come as part of the keyboard part itself?).

I thought it would be straight forward but i dont want to buy the wrong thing.

I have taken the faulty seagate ST94019A 2.5" hd out of the laptop, looked on ebuyer and found a couple that seem compatible but some say ATA-100 and some say IDE.

Im not sure if there different or the same, and also not sure about physical size.

Can anyone advise please?


A:Solved: I need to replace hd on laptop but need help?

Based on the model number you provided (seagate ST94019A), this is a 40Gig ATA drive.

Match the replacement interface to be ATA aswell and perhaps consider a larger capacity while you're at it - good time to move up in capacity since you'll have to install the Operating System (i take it it's windows)

My laptop has 1 TB on HDD and 32 GB on SSD cache. I would like to upgrade my 1 TB HDD by a 240 GB SDD, but as my laptop already have 32 GB SSD cache, I don't know if it is possible.

A:Can I replace HDD by SDD on laptop with SSD cache?

Yes but if you do you should remove the 32 gig cache disk as it will no longer serve any purpose. Also, reinstallation of the operating system may require a RAID driver to be loaded during installation. Post back if you want more specific help.
