Help with replacing a cracked screen?

by EvieCee / December 5, 2017 2:25 PM PST

So, I recently had the pleasure of cracking my laptop screen and I don't have the money to get it repaired by a professional. I don't think anything other than the screen is damaged as the computer seems to be working perfectly aside from the part of my screen that's cracked. From what I've gathered, you can replace a laptop screen yourself, but I haven't found any information on my specific laptop or even replacement screens for sale for my laptop. If anyone has any info about it or knows where to get info, or more importantly, where to buy a screen from, please let me know. My laptop is a HP Pavilion Notebook PC and the string of characters that seem to be associated with it are 15 - ay014dx. And, as you might be able to tell from my question, I know very little about computers so if you answer with tech specific terms, I might not understand what you mean. Thank you for any help you can provide!

typically you can pry the bezel that surround the screen off from it's edges, it's usually just a snap on. That gives access to the screws holding the screen itself in.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
