Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop ?

My laptop screen started off with lines and distorted color. It has now spread to the entire screen and a picture will only appear on the screen while you press your thumb on the screen. Can the screen be repaired it must it be replaced? Is repairable or is it cheaper to buy a new computer? It is less than two years old and I don't have money for a new one. It is almost impossible to use it one handed while pressing on the screen. THANKS FOR YOUR RESPONSE!


Answers :

You can use it with a monitor plugged into it. Also probably cheaper to just purchase a new notebook then to repair it.
