HELP! I dropped my Dell Inspiron 1564 laptop.

This question is not answered

I had my laptop sitting on my couch last week and long story short, it fell from couch to the floor. I didnt think anything about it and just left it alone. The following night I turned on my laptop and it had different shades of red vertical lines all over the screen, couldnt even see the windows logo or login screen. The next day I powered it on and it came on but runs like it has lag and the colors are off (they look like a negative almost). I need help  knowing what I can do or how much it will cost to fix it. I really don't want a new computer. Also when I plug my computer into my tv with an HDMI cord the screen looks fine on the tv but still messed up on the laptop screen! Any advice?

  • First thing to do is reseat the cable that runs between the mainboard and display panel. If that doesn't fix the problem, it's likely the screen needs to be replaced - that will run about $200 for the part plus labor to install it.
