Preferred Solution: my split 2 laptop screen glass broken

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)
product name:        pavilion 23 q159na
product number:    N8W55EA#ABU
serial number:         [personal information removed]
glass screen number: ZAI3IN63FBTP00213BN02236
any help is welcomed.
Thanks in advance

Hi, I am a bit OCD so I wonder if the surface is easy to be scratched. If I get the glass model, will it break easily? For both glass and non-glass versions, can the case be replaced if they are broken or scratched over time?

The symptoms:One day when you've opened or closed the lid as you would with normal use, you here a pop and notice that the screen has separated from the lid body in one of the corners near the hinge (the screen glass may or may develop a crack a that point). If you chose to do nothing though, this problem will only get worse and, eventually, the screen glass will crack.  The problem:The root cause of the problem is the use of glue/adhesive applied by the manufacturer to keep hinge assembly attached to lid body. After a while the glue fails to hold the hinge in place and it separates from the lid. When that happens (with a pop), the hinge mounting plate (made of steel) is now moving freely between the screen and the lid so when you try to move the lid, it's pushing against the back of the screen causing screen glass to bend outward. This applies to ALL Lenovo Yoga series notebooks as their hinge design is the same and Lenovo is aware of it... but choses to do nothing. Support:Given that Lenovo designed this hinge and chose the materials and methods to assemble it, you would think that it would take the responsibility for it failing to last passed warranty. Unfortunately, no such luck. When you call support, you get nothing but denial and blame for mishandling their state-of-the-art product and causing it to fail. So you end up with a total disappointment on your hands and a bitter taste of unfairness. Repair:The hinge can be repaire... Read more

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.

Hi there, I have been reading many posts on this forum, and apparently I am not the only one with this problem: My HP Envy 6-1010sa left hinge has decided to go askew and it's making the left bottom edge of my screen to spit, as I open/close the screen. I have not read about any solutionsfrom HP on my fellow-commentators, so I'm not sure what to do. As everyone else, my warranty has just expired, the laptop is only approx. 1.5 years old. The laptop works totally fine, and the screen is fine too and normally I am really happy with this laptop! But I am really worried now, I don't want the screen to get damaged even more! Can anyone, from HP please, tell me how to fix this? The hinge is not broken I think, it just seems out of position and I cant get it back in position and it's pulling the screen apart. I'm based in Amsterdam, is there a HP repair department in Amsterdam where I can go to? It seems like such an easy thing to repair, I just want a professional to look at it and I can't afford a whole new screen/whole new laptop! Many thanks for you help in advance! Here is an image that someone else posted, mine looks exactly the same! (how odd) Thanks, Susanne

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. So how can I be sure of exactly what parts needs to be replaced?

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.

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

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)
" Standard VGA-Grafikkarte" (Ati X1250 ? )
->NVIDIA GeForce 8400M G

I'm new to this so please bear with my lack of knowledge/ comprehension. :blush:

any help appreciated!

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!

A:Laptop monitor doubled copy screen split problem

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.

Thank you!

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.

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.

I own an ideapad 100s. My laptop has broken before, but this time, I couldn?t fix it. I use the F9 key which makes the screen dark but not shut the computer down. You can slightly see the screen still, but it saves a lot of battery. This feature is really useful when I need to do something else while still keeping the laptop on. However, now this function is on forever! When I tried to boot up my laptop, I noticed there was just a black screen at first. I kept restarting the laptop, but I realized that the laptop was functioning, but the screen was just really dark like in F9 mode. I can sign in and do everything I wanted to do, so the laptop was still funcional. I can even go on settings to change the brightness, but it didn?t do anything. All the keys seemed to be working, so I doubt that the F9 key just broke and I can?t get the screen back to normal. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Afternoon All,

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?

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.

A:broken laptop screen advice

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.

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?

A:Toshiba laptop screen broken

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?

my main laptop, a toshiba with 17in HD monitor, win 10, and all my adobe creative suite software, has a cracked screen, but it still works great. I had it hooked to an external monitor but my ex smashed the monitor when we broke up. I dont have the cash to buy a new screen or monitor right now, but I also cant work without the adobe programs on the laptop. I have this other older laptop:

Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate, Service Pack 1, 32 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 1.73GHz, x86 Family 6 Model 13 Stepping 8

Graphics Card: ATI MOBILITY RADEON X300, 32 Mb
Hard Drives: C: 55 GB (40 GB Free);

is there any way to link my main laptop to this ones screen without damaging the older one?


A:can a laptop with broken screen be accessed through another?

What's the model name and exact model number and exact serial number of that Toshiba laptop?

Note: 2 sets of characters separated by a dash should comprise the model number.


I don't believe you can do what you want to do with 2 laptops, but someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

You can buy a refurbished 17" - 19" flat-screen monitor for less than $100.00.
