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.)
Long story short, cleaning the screen while holding speaker in hanbd , speaker dropped and knocked the screen. Glass screen is broken while digitizer and LCD still intact. I was searching the net for a replacement part for it because HP service informed that they will be replacing the whole glass +digitizer+lcd assembly (for quite a big amount ofc aprox £350 when a new machine in their store is £550) I do understand that this is my mistake but damage is not in this proportion. Anyway there should be a way to purchase just the glass, which I dismateled fairly easy (under 5 min)

this is a fairly new laptop from frys with waranty
Unfortunately, the standard warranty does not cover a cracked screen-unless you bought the extra Accidental Damage Protection.If Frys has a PC service center they can probably give you an estimate to replace screen.If not >Contact HPRead other 1 answers

I broke the glass on my laptop. Where can I get a new glass? Monitor works and I'm not able to bring it to service for a few weeks. I want to install the glass myself.
Thank you for some info
I can understand your wish to fix this alone but problem is that you cannot obtain such parts as easily as you think. All we can say here is: use Google and god luck.
By the way: without maintenance manuals and exact step-by-step instructions it could be pretty risky ?operation?.
I don't know where do you live and where you are at the moment but repair in any European country should not be problematic for you.

The glass broke on my Yoga 900, I have had it for less than a month so not a great day so far. I have contacted some local repair places, but no one seems to be able to get the replacement part, and I haven't had much luck on the support page. Any ideas how I go about getting the part, or at least the part number? Or any suggestions for ways to get it repaired? I am near Charlotte NC USA
Good day and welcome to the community.
Sorry you're having difficulty.
Regarding part numbers, it looks like the entire lid/LCD assembly is one part. Please see pages 52-53 (item #1) of the HMM: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/yoga_900-13isk_hmm_201509.pdf
Regarding repair, you might wish to call Service (info below) to ask about depot service or authorized centers near you.

I have recenty purchased hp pavillion x360 13 s194nr its front glass has been broken Touch functionality still works and the image seems fine behind the broken glass parts. Now I've asked some service centres in my country about parts, and they said that I would need to replace the whole front (LCD+Digitizer}. He said that your digitizer is so close to your lcd in removing the broken digitizer/glass there is 98% chance that your lcd will break.

I am using HP dv2750 for more than a year. Two days ago the screen got frozen and hanged. then i forced the power button turn it OFF,since then it didn't boot at all.
then it is booting normally with 6 split screens, after using the recovery disks many times.
OS: windows Vista 32-bit.

My laptop screen is in two parts. The bottom half is on top and the top half is on the bottom of the screen. Its like a old tv with vertical hold and the screen stopped off center so you see 2 halves. I cant get it back to normal. I tried updating all video drivers and still the same problem
Get into desktop properties, settings and make sure the video adapter is set at 60Hz refresh rate... An OS repair may be needed. Does the booting screen display normally?
Hey there. While I appreciate there have been other problems of the same nature on this forum, I cannot find a fix that has worked for me and a new thread is probably the best action I can take right now.
The problem first started 2 days ago, when I was simply browsing the web (nothing too graphcs intensive, maybe a youtube video, I don't remember exactly) Basically, the laptop completely froze (black screen). Even though I tried waiting it out, the only way of fixing was to hold down the power button and force off the power.
Upon rebooting the screen was split into 6 identical images. 3 down the left side, and 3 down the right. On top of this, I could not get it to boot to windows (vista 32bit) I would simply get the loading bar as normal, then a black screen (no hdd activity) waited this out for 10+ minutes, and was forced to power off again. Tried a further 3 times and nothing.
Tried booting to safe mode, this was somewhat more successful, I would get the list of loaded files as per usual, then a black screen displaying (6) cursors. Same thing happened; no hdd activity, with just the screen.
At this point I headed onto another computer and started trawling the web for fixes. The screen problem wasn't bothering me intensely at this point - I just wanted to be able to get into windows in an attempt to fix it. After discovering that Asus don't provide you with the Vista repair disk (only recovery) I downloaded and burned a Vista repair disk. Booted to it a... Read more

I have an HP 9638us laptop with Vista Ultimate 64 bit Service Pack 2 and three times in the last two days the system has crashed and when it is restarted I have a split screen. I restarted the system in SAFE mode. I disabled the Nvidia graphic driver GeForce 8600M GS and restarted the system. It still gave me a split screen. I then enabled the Nvidia graphic driver and the system asked for a restart. When it restarted the split screen was gone. I have updated the driver to the lastest found (March 2009). It crashed both times while viewing emails with Outlook. Am I missing something to correct the problem. I do not think it is caused by overheating as I run the laptop with a chill mat underneath. Any suggestions on what the cause may be and possible solutions. I am not that much of a computer expert except I know that it should not be doing this. Thank you.

about five days ago my mom's laptop (acer aspire 7520) suddenly displayed a horizontally split screen, as follow up it also crashed and then failed to boot etc. causing me to spend the last two days getting it back to work.
the split screen is seperated by a thin white line across the monitor and both halfs display the same, including mouse movements. the whole desktop is visible on both halfs each and functions properly except being a bit blurry. also, the screens are both misplaced on the monitor, meaning they're left aligned.
the split screen appears at random, mostly already on the first screen after turning the laptop on, when MS-DOS is loading(?). while the laptop had no OS (I mean software..) on it the split screen appeared more frequently and a friend of mine suspects a hardware failure. oddly enough, the split screen did not occur for a while after the reinstallment of win7 x32 home premium.
I'm really puzzled about what is causing this problem.
about the laptop:
acer aspire 7520 (about 4 years old)
AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile TL-60 (3.2 GHz)
3 GB DDR2 RAM
" Standard VGA-Grafikkarte" (Ati X1250 ? )
->NVIDIA GeForce 8400M G
I'm new to this so please bear with my lack of knowledge/ comprehension. :blush:

Sounds like the LCD display panel is bad...
I've recently come across a problem where my HP laptop monitor split in half and displays a duplicate image on the lower half. This issue did occur initially about 2-3 weeks ago, but went away after a couple of reboots. At this time my computer was shutting down randomly, to what I believe may have been overheating issues (which went away after I sprayed out some dust with canned air)
Recently I upgraded to Windows 7 (which I don't think had anything to do with it as it previously occurred under Vista) and was playing a movie while the video started stuttering and skipping. Computer became totally unresponsive, had to reboot. Restarted with a gray line across the middle of the screen, then BIOS loaded but everything is doubled, on the top and bottom. Image looks very interlaced and very low resolution. On top of that Windows won't load unless in Safe mode (possibly something got corrupted during restart) but that is not my concern at this point. The gray line always shows up when restarting my computer and I continuously have the split screen issue. I am including a picture to give you an idea.
This is very frustrating especially since my back-up desktop also went on the fritz with Windows corrupting itself on that machine as well. Any help please? Save me!
Suggest you check your display settings (config and resolution etc) and also see if there is a later display driver for Win 7.
Did you run Windows Upgrade Advisor before going to Windows 7 - note that the Win 7 upgrade may have installed an "OLD' display diver.
A disclaimer before I proceed. Im not the best with computers or computer terms.
I have a Samsung laptop (not sure of the model), and the screen broke months ago. Since then I've been using an external monitor without any issues until today. When I start up my laptop I can never see anything displayed on the external monitor until the log in screen. The monitor will always go into hibernation mode until the log in screen.
However, today it's taking longer to start up and I cant see what's going on. At first I thought windows was performing a disk scan but i waited over an hour! So that must not be the issue. I want to find a way to display what is happening on the external monitor if possible. I have been endlessly searching all day online for help. I would really appreciate any help/advice.
I used a Samsung NP300E5A-A02UB laptop for over a year through an external monitor, ever since the screen broke on it. Never had any problems with it besides that. Until one day I, not thinking about it, shut down my PC through holding down the power button, because it was being too slow, couldn't even shut it down normally. But little did I know, doing that would make sure I can't use it again, as far as I can tell. Because I shut it down using the power button, I'm assuming the screen came up, the one either to repair or tell me the pc shut down incorrectly, or bios, or whatever it is. But since my external monitor doesn't turn on until after my pc is signing in, it won't turn on. Normally it would just kick on automatically when signing in. So I'm completely blind to what I'm doing and can't get my monitor on. Literally all I need is a sneak peak at it to get it to turn on all the way, but I don't know how. I've tried a few things already, that I've found online, but never though to ask about it til now.
I've tried doing the little closing and then quickly opening up the laptop screen to fool the pc into turning it on.
I've tried manually unplugging my screen, in hopes it would use my external as a primary instead.
I've pressed the appropriate F key, or combination keys to turn it on.
Possibly other things, but I forget, it's been a little while.
All of these with no luck.
Literally all I may... Read more

You have two or more girlfriends and they shared a laptop and the only thing broken is the screen? Amazing!
If it was setup to allow Window's Remote Desktop or some similar third party remote access, you can use that. Otherwise, I think repairs or another laptop are called for.

We had finally gotten a computer (laptop) last week (which husband had to fix first ) to be able to do some work for someone. Just got it up & running 2days ago and while at a friend's, someone stood it up next to a chair, and it fell over & actually broke the screen (looks kinda like you swiped the screen with a few different colored paintbrushes)! Due to a wildfire in August, we are very short on money so we will probably have to try to find a screen on craigslist or something. My question is Is there ANY other models that are apt to have the same screen or that can be easily used? If so, which ones are apt to be compatible or, if you don't know, how can I find out???
Thank you very much for any/all help!
P. S. Hopefully this was the best subforum to put this in. If not, either let me know or feel free to move it for me. Thanks
A Google search for 2000-239dx LCD will turn up a number of pages of companies selling the screens and also people selling them on e-Bay. You could choose to buy from one of those sources. Some of the found pages may list other HP models that use the same screen.

Seems your having a run of bad luck arent you, first your cable box is dead and now an animal has smashed your laptop screen, seems that 2009 isnt going to be a good year for you...
Ebay is a good place to get screens however and they arent usually to hard to fit.

I have a nice laptop with a broken LCD screen. I would like to continue using it as a desktop connected to a regular monitor, but I cannot figure out how to configure it to use the monitor as the primary display because it boots to the now missing LCD. I could configure it were the LCD working, but it isn't. Can anyone suggest a workaround? It is running Windows XP SP3 and I can see the "Windows XP" boot screen for a few moments at startup
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).
If you are unfamiliar with how the Forum's private message capability works, you can learn about that here.

Any body out there have experience replacing a laptop screen? Don't have any problem replacing the screen but I'm not sure if it's worth doing. The laptop was given to me with the screen broken. When I plug the power cord in and turn on the unit, nothing happens; no beeps, no lights, not even a sigh. I'd hate to buy a used screen, only to find that the rest of the unit is fryed due to the obvious fall that it took. Any suggestions?
Well, I sure wouldn't do anything about buying a screen until you're sure that's the only issue. If it doesn't do anything, I'm guessing that more than the screen is gone. Since a most likely better new laptop can be had for as little as $400, do you really want to sink money into this one? Start your shopping here:

IMO Windows is huge pain when dealing with more than 2 screens. At work I have 3 screens and occasionally when I take out my laptop from docking station, it messes up the settings. Takes 5-10 minutes get it back to my original.
But that is not my question. At home I have a cracked laptop screen that no longer works. I have connect this laptop to my tv and am trying to use it as a htpc. My issue is I have not been able to find settings that disable the laptop screen, and for windows to ONLY use my tv as primary screen. The reason I need to disable the laptop screen is that when I have my laptop open (I need this to use the keyboard/mouse of the laptop), the tv screen is OFF (windows is thinking I'm using the laptop screen that is dead). Essentially I'm in a situation in which if I want to use laptop/keyboard, the default setting is the laptop screen. Right now I have to get the laptop lid closed, but barely open it for me to use the touchpad/keyboard.
What I'm looking for...
-Registry setting or permanently way of disabling the laptop screen.
-Permanent setting that always defaults the tv monitor instead of the laptop screen.
-I'm only going to use XBMC (windows to boot directly), and would prefer not to have setup the settings every time I turn it on.
-If above is not possible, anyway of setting Windows to think the lid is always closed?
There is a switch in the laptops bevel, short it to have always closed , check power options to see if that helpsRead other 6 answers
My brother in law dropped his laptop, which has resulted in a cracked screen and damaged plastics. Having replaced a screen before I ordered a new one, and have fit it, but alas no joy.
Before I go and pull the laptop to pieces I thought it would be a good idea to ask for some advice. Here are a few key points;
1. The replacement screen is brand new, and has had all its wires connected. There is no display on the screen. There was no display on the old damaged on either, I though the fall had damaged it completely.
2. The rest of the laptop works fine, I have hooked it up to a screen via the VGA output, and everything works fine.
3. When I right click and select properties>settings , it only displays the external monitor, no mention of the LCD.
So what do you suggest? I was thinking about pulling it apart and seeing if the LCD cable was still attached at the "other end", any thoughts?
Loose connections is all I can think of, mainly because all the other parts are obviously working (with the external monitor).
I aquired an Aspire 4720Z laptop that the screen had been stepped on. I removed the screen (smashed on mid right side), but before removing (and after), I connected it to 2 different monitors--nothing appeared on either-black, power LED just blinks on/off although the computer sounds like it's working, lights come on, hear the drive , etc. I tried Fn +F8 and all other suggestions I could find, nothing. The laptop screen shows zero, not faded, nothing.Vusually, the inverter looks OK, no signs of anything else. Any suggestions as what to check/how to check while i have the screen off, what's next? --failure with the other 2 monitors bothers me.
When you hit the Fn+F8, did you wait a few seconds, then hit the combination again?
Make sure there isn't a small pin poking through near the hinge area above the keyboard that may be stuck (from being stepped on). This pin activates a switch when the lid is closed. (Some systems use a different method.) If there is a pin, be sure it works freely, is not stuck.
If the system was closed when the LCD was stepped on, it could have suffered damage under the keyboard, the video section of the motherboard, perhaps.
I have a problem regarding a broken laptop screen, nvidia drivers that failed to install and a system that now doesn't output via it's own hdmi port. Yikes.
The screen was cracked some time ago, but hey, modern Laptops (the model in question is a Gigabyte Q1732) all have hdmi out, so I procured a good screen and continued to use the Laptop.
However, during a recent system and disk cleanup one of the tasks I had set myself was correcting an issue with my graphics driver that was using the default on-board as opposed to the nvidia GT540m that it was equipt with. I took the opportunity to uninstall the intel driver and the subsequently install the nvidia driver before restarting, as the switch over did not work on my previous attempts. That was probably my biggest mistake.
The nvidia installation failed, prompting restart into safe mode.
The hdmi port no longer outputs and so, with the broken screen, I can't see what I am doing to try and fix anything.
I am running Windows 7 64 bit.
Could I set up remote desktop? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Our laptop screen no longer works (thanks to my son peeing on the computer!!!). We were connecting to our TV monitor via HDMI, but after my wife downloaded Windows 10, everytime we attempt to connect to the TV or any other monitor, we get a "no signal" message. I am computer illiterate, but I was hoping some knowledgeable people here would be able to assist.
Ok, so I received an older laptop from someone, a Gateway NE56R43u. So the screen is broken....a big crack in it, can't see anything. It needs to be replaced and I plan on doing so when I get money, but until then I'm trying to see if anything else is damaged. I'm using an external monitor, but it only works when I get into Windows. I can't get a picture in DOS or even get into the BIOS. So when Windows comes up, I can see everything...through the external monitor that is. I went to upgrade it to Windows 10 and everything seemed fine, but it's either stuck on something or it's a part where it's not in Windows yet and needs some sort of manual input, but I can't see anything. The external monitor isn't showing anything. The monitor I'm using is an old Lite-On LCD. I'm using a VGA input. Again, works in Windows, but it's stuck and I can't see anything. Any ideas on how to get it back to where I can see it again? Thanks.
Does the laptop have an HDMI port?
If I use an HDMI cable, I see the BIOS on the tv. Strangely the laptop stays black until Windows has completely loaded.
