I cracked just a corner of my laptop screen but it was enough to render it useless. Of course I panicked - just thinking of all the work I needed to accomplish the next day made me feel sick. Oh did I mention that performed this little trick at 7pm in the evening? What the hell can one do about a broken computer at 7 o'clock at night??
Lucky for me - I have a phone with internet access and my partner has lots of experience putting together and taking apart computers. That said - I talked him into this first laptop job he's ever done!
So after watching a video on YouTube about how to replace the screen, he removed the screen, checked for the part number and awesomely enough - his favorite computer store (MicroCenter) had just what we needed. We ran over, picked it up and as soon as we arrived home - he got to work.
It was one of those repairs that was easy and not easy but ultimately, the repair was made and my precious laptop is basically good as new! Thanks Honey!
Now he randomly asks me 'WHERE IS YOUR PEN?'
