There are about 3 parts to this area. The LCD lid (most makers replace the entire lid because they need to avoid time on the expensive tech bench), the cables, connections and motherboard.
Given what a new machine with twice the RAM and what looks to be on par with most X55A's I'd look at http://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-Computers-Accessories-Laptop/zgbs/pc/565108 in the #1 or 2 slot and sell this off as-is.
I replaced my laptop screen in February. A little bit after that my laptop charger broke and I had to replace it. I gave the laptop to my mom and her boyfriend in order to buy a new charger for me. When I got home the laptop was charging, and I opened it to turn it on and it would not come on at all.
I looked this up online someone told me I probably needed to release some of the charge from the laptop. This did not work. However the next day I was inspecting the laptop and found I could see the contents of the screen very dimly, only when I shined a light on it. I then guessed that either the back light or the inverter was broken.
However one day I picked up the laptop from the bottom of the screen and the screen came on but only when I applied pressure to the bottom of the screen.
I don't understand what's wrong with it and I want to send it away for my brother for Christmas and I don't have time to send it to fix. Also the computer is in perfect working area when I hook it up to an external monitor.
Model: Asus X55A
