If it works, the cost may be more than some will pay. If you google YOUTUBE LAPTOP LCD REPLACEMENT you find not only examples of how to change it but sellers of said panels.
my laptop screen has a dark, black with sort of purple outline around it. I bought this second hand(Dell Studio, Vista SP 2)and it had what looked like water under the screen on a small spot on right. Even as I am typing this the size of the dark spot is now shrinking. I figure it is just the screen going bad and probably no fix for it. If I didn't have bad luck I wouldn't have any at all as they say:)
