    Can anyone advise me as to where I can get a replacement 15 inch lcd screen for a Dell Inspiron 8000. I've tried DELL and they want about 300 quid. I need it to be a lot cheaper than that - second hand maybe?

    Please advise

    Ebay?

    I've literally just bought a LCD monitor and know it's not easy to get them at really keen prices. It's even more difficult if you are being very specific. How about a black one, but from another manufacturer?

    Sorry - I obviously haven't used the correct terminology - it is for a laptop. I think there other companies that manufacture LCDs for DELL. It may not need to be 15 inch as long as it fits the casing.

    If not EBay then it's going to be even tougher.

    Dell source their stuff from a few companies that I don't think will supply customers direct. I'm not knowledgeable in that area, sorry.

    How old is your laptop?

    What's wrong with it exactly?

    £300 is steep I agree, but you may have no choicebut to upgrade or pay the £300 as it's a Dell! Sorry.

    If you do a search on the "Remote Controls" forum, I posted a link to a company called EarthLCD I think in the states that do this.
