or for temp hook up an external monitor and copy the data off.

you may be shocked once you get quotes.

the screen is one of the major costs of the laptop.

Most people I've seen in that spot end up getting a new laptop and the old one ends up as a desktop connected to an external display

Cheaper just to buy a new laptop. Take the old HD out of the old laptop or hook up a monitor, keyboard and mouse to the laptop and use it as a desktop.

You can find parts a lot cheaper than that. Especially LCDs.

I bought one the other day for 60 bucks. Try using the LCD manufacturer part number, not the laptop manufacturer.

Im with the majority here. Just buy a new laptop. Take out the HDD and get an external enclosure. You can put it in a case, make an external hard drive out of it and still have all your info.

some people are like slinkies; they're completely useless, but still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
