So I got a call from my wife last night, and apparently she messed up her laptop pretty badly (She is out of town visiting her parents). The plastic part behind her screen is peeled back and the screen looks pretty messed up too. Here are a couple pictures of the laptop as it is now:
Question is just how hard will this be to fix you think? Any tips on getting the parts needed for it? Will the only things needing to be replaced the plastic case and the LCD screen? It is a Lenovo Ideapad Z580.
Background on me: I am a computer science student in college (networking and security). I have built my own desktop, but as far as my laptop experience goes I have only swapped out a HDD for an SSD.
Edit: Actually after looking a little closer at the picture, I'm not sure the LCD is even broken.
it has some videos on how to replace the lcd screen (easy), but for the plastic, have you tried to remove the lcd screen, by removing the screws and tried bending it back? or putting a heavy weight on it overnight.
look around for new lcd screens, your be able to get them cheaper.
