    Screen replacement can cost a fortune, I wouldnt expect you to get it done for less than £200. Have you just damaged the surface of the screen or have you damaged the actual screen underneath as well? Sometimes it can be cheaper to replace the laptop unfortuantly, be warned.

    Unless its an expensive laptop it may well not be worth repairing. Most places will charge around £200-£300 for this job.

    How'd you manage that.
    Staring at your reflection? :p:
    Anyway, if you are good with your hand you could fit it yourself. A screen depending on what size it is normally would be around 110 quid.
    Be warned, it's really damn tricky and difficult to do.

    Ditto what everyone else has said; better to fess up and let your dad claim it on his insurance.

    Yeah my dad knows now my laptop only cost £400. and its the but inderneth. And as for how i did it, i had a pen on the key pad and closed the laptop, heard a creak, switched it on and saw there was a crack one end to the other. Im still using it though so its not that bad, as long as you dont keep moving it. Dad said he would bye me a new one at christmas and we will just have to put up with it until then. We gave my computer to my cousin so i dont have a desktop either. Oh well, i think it would be cheaper to get a new one.

    Thanks all!

    You could always buy a monitor and use that with your laptop. You can get some nice widescreen ones for £100 now.

    Your dad seems to more or less have let you off the hook, considering your getting a new 1 at xmas. May I ask y on earth did you have a pen on the keypad?
