So my daughter dropped my HP Mini 110 netbook and the LCD screen is toast now. I thought it would be an easy fix as I've read here and other places how I can just buy a screen off ebay and do it myself. As it turns out, my model is a lot trickier than most due to its design. There are hinges and other installation issues. I looked at a video of the closest model and it's still not the same. I even bought the repair manual and I still don't dare mess with it so as not to cause permanent damage.

I've been checking out prices and most are really high which I think is about the value of the machine. I'm talking around $150 to include the screen. Does anyone have a more reasonable recommendation for me to take it in for repair?

Based on past computer repairs of my own, I'm guessing it's just cheaper to replace it.

honestly...your better off buying a new one....netbooks have high rates malfunctioning outside of normal wear and tear.....you pay 150 now for the screen...it might be 150 down the road for something else...I would just buy a new one or a ipad...

Yeah, I guess I didn't want to face the inevitable, but will have to...

Thanks for that perspective Zippy.

I really love my little Mini. It was my first and a gift from my mom. *Sigh*
