Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

Damaged screen. This might be a silly question, and I know it's obviously not as simple to take care of as a desktop would be. I've got a Dell Inspiron E1705 and the screen's cracked. I guess the one good thing is that the area where the damage is centered is over to the far left and I still have about 2/3 of the screen I can actually use. My Question: Is it worth it (or even possible) to get the screen replaced? Or would it be better for me just to go out and buy a new laptop?


Answers :

If you want to save money then replaced only the LCD screen. But before you do that, try to consult first the store where you buy it and ask them if it still cover by the warranty. Replacing your laptop lcd could take time. But if you don't want to be hassle, then just go out and buy a newer and faster laptop. :-)

\015\012Screen replacements roughly are around £140 so its really a decission if you would spend £140 on repairing or if you would prefer putting the money towards a new one.

The disk still spins (I can feel it when I hold it in my hand), but the laptop (Windows XP) won't acknowledge it anymore. It's only a cuople months old, so I can get a new one, but even though THEIR device went bad, they want to charge me $1700 to restore data!!! Unbelievable!
