    That all depends on your comfort level with electronics. You might need to track down hard to find specific parts, and your own attempt at repair may permanently destroy the laptop.

    I’d suggest going to your laptop manufacturer’s website, and locating your nearest authorized repair center and getting a repair quote.

    If you want to try yourself, you can find directions on how to replace/remove the monitor for various laptop models here: http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/category/laptop-service-manual/
