Okay, so as you may remember from yesterday, I slipped on the ice and cracked my laptop screen.
The first impulse is to replace the whole laptop, as most of us understand it is cheaper to replace something than to fix it. Well, that may not necessarily be so.
In times gone by, I have been both an office equipment repair tech and a computer tech. I have moved on from those industries due to stress and low pay.
What this means is that taking apart my laptop does not scare me. So, I looked up on line and found what I hope to be the proper replacement screen for my laptop.
It should arrive today, and so, if everything goes well, I will be up and running today . . . I hope.
The screen itself cost me $78.00 and the shipping cost me $12.00 so with taxes in am in the low $90.00 range.
It is a risk, as this may not work, or only work for a short period of time. Since a new laptop would cost me $400.00 - $500.00 (as I don’t want the absolutely bargain basement model) this is worth a try.
Let it be known that a want my green star for doing my part for the environment by trying to fix this laptop rather than toss it out.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
