Hi all,

I've accidently cracked my Laptop screen (dropped it down the stairs) and I'm wondering how I would replace it? I have some idea on how to put it together (already taken the cracked on out) but wondering whether there are specific screens for scpecific laptops (don't know much about them)

It's a cheap

E-System

13.3 inch screen

Intel celeron M430 1.73GHZ

Intel 943GML (calistoga) + ICH7-M

...if that helps.

This is the screen I'm thinkjing of buying;

Does anyone now whether it'll be okj to fit into this?

thanks.

Mines got a totally different back to it, same color just not those indents and divets. The fitting also looks different.

Looks as if I might have to take it upto PC world to see what they can do...dread to think the charges they'll cough up for a generally inexpensive part!

Anyway, it's shocking how easily these screens smash....I know it fell down a flight of stairs, but nothing else even scratched!

"generally inexpensive part!" since when? The laptop LCD is the first or second most expensive part in a laptop depending upon model. It fights with the laptop motherboard for position. Expect anywhere from $150 to $500(US) depending upon size and age. Possibly more, quite often you are better off buying a new laptop, this is reason I always tell people to get accidental damage protection warranties on laptops, especially for students.

80-150US$ that will be for those laptops.

Andrew932, Just contact the maker of the laptop, you can find the contact on there site or in your warranty description. If that not helps look at the label(s) at the back of the screen and we will try to find out who made it and where you can order a new one. Prepare to pay 100US$ for handling and transport too if it comes from Asia.

I just wonder how far you want to go ;). You could always sell the laptop like it is now and buy another one...

There is this one also:

doesn't the one you have removed have a serial of some kind, brand, model?

(see the picture in the linked page)

Sometimes with the serial a google search can help in finding the right spare.

Also check here (with the said serial):

Just shows how much I know!

Jaclaz, thanks for the links. After eventually finding the seriel number;

N133L1-L01

I typed it into Spare parts warehouse but it came up with no results. Put it into Google and it came up with this;

Must be other sites that sell the part!?

The vast majority of screens used in all makes of laptop are produced by Sharp Electronics. As such you should be able to use a screen from another make/model as long as the size/resolution is the same and attach your laptop's broken screen's inverter & connectors to the common points. I have swapped IBM/Acer screens into Dell's and vice versa.

@Andrew932

The one you found seems like the site of the actual manufacturer, in China.

I doubt they will ever shop a single piece, maybe you can mail them to ask them for your national reseller or for any (small) company they have supplied the screen in the past, these kinds of screens are also used in "industrial appliance" types of machines, like CNC and the like.

This one appears to be more (geographically) accessible, but you won't like the price... :whistle:
