Having problems with your Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook ?

Distorted picture on laptop

\015 Laptop fell off of table. The computer still works but the monitor only shows part of the picture. Is the monitor ruined or can it be fixed?\015

Answers :

Well depends alot on what kind of condition the monitor is on now. in most cases you would have to replace the lcd panel inside the display cover.

\015\012alot of people sell laptop parts on ebay, you might find a replacement panel from there. www.ebay.com (stay away from the 16GB memory sticks and players, if they are too cheap they are fake, probably 1GB less or more hacked to show a bigger size test with H2TESTW 1.4)
Unfortunately it sounds like this one is toast.

\015\012If you're looking for a replacement, I was snooping around and saw this one for $350: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/sys/1179340318.html.
\015\012This guy is only selling locally (SanFran, CA), but you might be able to find a similar deal elsewhere and get away with simply swapping hard drives.
\015\012
\015\012NOTE: This only makes sense if you're heavily invested in your current computer, because at $350+ you are so close to the purchase price of a new 'low end' computer that beats out your old one hands down.
