An all too common sight when working on laptops is the broken screen panel. Whether it was kicked, sat on or dropped from the sofa the result was the same: it needed replacing. This is often fairly simple and much cheaper than a new machine.
Some, such as Apple Macbooks required a seriously lengthy disassembly process whilst others only presented me with a handful of screws to remove and some gentle prying.
I have replaced dozens, perhaps hundreds, of screens in many different laptops and this may be a task I could actually perform with my eyes closed!
