I wish that were true. There are few Geeks in this local store who can actually make factual, true statements.
I took the screen out and have finally found one one month later. $220 from the distributor. It is still unavailable from either BB or HP.
If anybody is inclined to do this fix yourself, it's actually pretty easy. There are online instructions. The manufacturer's model number and resolution (1280 X 800 in this case) need to be crosschecked to make sure you are getting the right part. It takes maybe half an hour to do.
The Geeks couldn't do it, couldn't even get the parts.

laney im sorry not everyone knows how to fix computers. i can bet at least one of your family members doesn't know how to fix a computer, or a car, even if you throw a Do it yourself in front of their face.
if you know how to fix the computers, great, then geek squad is not for you. geek squad is there for those who doesn't know how to fix computers, or doesn't have time to fix a computer.

Look, u_hsen, I am not complaining about the Geek Squad, I am protecting myself against their holier-than-thou attitude and trying to get some folks to pick this concept up and save themselves some money! My sole interest in Geek Squad's prices, services, etc., is that there are a lot of folks out there over a barrel by Geek Squad's prices when some of these folks can and should learn. I can guarantee you that it is worth while to learn...those who have a desire, should very much so go for it! I am sorry that everybody thinks I am such a threat that they just keep attacking me! I WILL defend myself though. Just as Geek Squad believes in what they are doing, I also believe in helping people by trying to convince a handful to help themselves.
