Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R40 2722 Notebook ?

Cracked monitor I have a HP dv8500 laptop that my husband accidently dropped. It cracked the monitor and now when you turn it on you only see the crack and gray color. Nothing else. It is about a year and a half old. What are my options? Thanks.


Answers :

Hi there.
I'm in no doubt that the screen has to be replaced and maybe other components to if they have suffered shock damage.
If you want to check to see if the system still works plug an external monitor to the laptop, then use the keyboard toggle to switch screens (usually hold down Fn and hit the F key with a monitor icon on it)
If you get a good display whilst using the external and the OS works properly then it will just be the screen and any plastics that need replacing.


Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!
Your only option is to replace the screen of the laptop. Fairly easy to replace if you wanted to buy one from the internet. Make sure to buy the right one though. If you have some fairly small screwdrivers to hand remove the screen and take the side brackets off. Remove the actual lcd panel and check the model number on the back. If you need anymore help let me know.
