Having problems with your Gateway 4540GZ Notebook ?

The laptop screen has a crack in it. Is that covered under the warranty?


Answers :

Maybe, it depends on your warranty. Lets just say be very very careful in how you phrase how the screen got broken. Sometimes IF it's covered at all its subject to interpretation.

i.e. saying, my kid hit it with a hammer is probably not your best answer. See if you can find what type of service contract. If your computer's under 30 days old, consider sending it back

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?


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 b ... Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
