Well, the computer repair company I worked for used to do alot of LCD and
laptop repair. Alot of times the lines are either easy to fix problems w/
cables and little wire connectors, and other times they are just on their
way out ( i repaired servers and desktops so I never got to dabble :/ ) in
any case, a good place that does *VERY* reasonable LCD and laptop repair is
Matrix International, which i believe is, or... I've
forgotten the phone #, but they are in Austin TX. they used to do flat rate
LCD repair for us for 125 a system.
